A DAY IN SINGAPORE
This was an unplanned trip. We were in my cousin’s place in Thailand browsing online and found out about ticket discounts to Singapore. Right there and then, we booked our flight for the next day. Then we planned to go to Malaysia via land from Singapore so we bought tickets for the bus too. Talk about impulsiveness!
It was a 2 hour flight from Bangkok. Changi airport is so fancy with carpeted floors, flowers and shops. We played with this interaction screen while waiting in line in the bathroom. We hang out here for an hour I think while planning where to go cos we’re only staying here for a day.
Our first stop was Sentosa! Here’s us buying tickets to get there.
Sentosa is amazing! It’s like a huge playground! We didn’t went inside the Universal Studios though.. We have no time left to stroll to other places. But at least we get to take a photo in the iconic Universal Studios globe.
I attended another wedding today and again, it’s one of my cousin’s. They’ve been together for so so long and I’m glad they finally had their grand church wedding!
When my lovely cousin walked down the aisle, I couldn’t imagine how it feels like being a bride, being her. It must feel so wonderful. She tried so hard not to cry but she teared up when she saw her 12 year old son and husband waiting for her at the end. My nephew cried too and most of us teared up a little as well. Well I did. :p
The whole ceremony was beautiful. It was solemn, all ears was on the priest as he gives meaningful message about marriage and how important that sacrament is.
Then the most awaited! oh, glorious food! It was so delicious, I ate every dish. haha. The program was so funny and entertaining. They made me join a game. All single ladies should. Ugh! Thankfully I was saved! I don’t want some random guy putting a garter up my leg!
Our health has taken its toll for days. I spent 2 days curling up in bed. Turns out all of us were sick especially my dad. He got admitted and although I’m sick, I took care of him while feeling better at the hospital too. After 3 days, I’m glad I’m now home.
I’ve been spending days at the hospital writing poems and proses. How I miss posting it here. But I guess it should stay somewhere else. I’ve been inspired with Lang Leav’s work. How I wish I can publish a book like hers. Someday.
A Little Haul
Thursday August 21, 2014
We shopped a lot when we were on vacation especially in Thailand. Bangkok is one heck of a city to shopped to from their little stalls on the streets, thrift shops to big shopping malls! Mostly we shopped for souvenirs but I also shopped for myself. Here are some of the things I bought minus the clothing.
I’ve been obsessed with pink nowadays. I guess it still is my favorite color. I’m loving hot pink right now.
watch for just 100 baht, H&M phone amplifier and bow, passport holder from Victoria’s Secret (mine was originally nude in color but I switched with my mom), owl purse (cos I love owls too)
How cute are these bracelets? The daisy and the unicorn are my faves! I’m gonna give the rest to my friends.
NONG NOOCH BOTANICAL GARDEN, THAILAND
This was day 3 of our Thailand adventure! We went to Nong Nooch Botanical Garden. It’s the most amazing and largest garden I’ve seen! The photos doesn’t even justify how beautiful it is. There’s so much more views and attractions to see that aren’t included here. (We were so excited running around that the photos turned out blurry, my cousin was the photographer not me. LOL.)
ON THE WAY// We rode a van to get there and there were few tourists there too. The conductor was so friendly and chatty. I was having a selfie session on my seat and the driver noticed me. He kept glancing and smiling at me and the conductor was trying to make a conversation with me in Thai. My cousin who knows how to speak Thai a little said the driver likes me. Haha! He’s kinda young, maybe just my age. They kept saying “Philippine Beautiful” and I just want to hide my face the entire ride cos there’s other people in there who can hear them. They’re just being friendly though and they don’t do it in a creepy way. I just waved and smiled at them when the ride’s over (thank God!).
ELEPHANT RIDE// First thing we did was ride the elephant. It was a bit pricey for a few minute walk but it was so worth it! I rode with my mom. The elephant’s tall and the seat was wobbly so I was trying not to squeal but I can hear my cousin’s screams behind me! haha.
