sooo steady in singapore.




a million thanks to my fabulous friend mori, who was a great travel buddy, who was my personal paparazzi every minute of the day, and who shared his similar angsts and dreams!!

the best of sing..

1. staring at the map figuring out which train to take to get to where you want to go.
2. taking crazy photos and confidently posing on orchard road.
3. walking around esplanade at night with the cool wind in your hair while staring at the merlion.
4. finding cool, unique, and cheap items in bugis village.
5. chancing upon a free cultural show in a spanish resto called 'the tapas tree' in clarke quay.
6. the night safari. astig!!
7. getting our much-needed caffeine-fix from the uber-cool 'the coffee connoiseur'.
8. getting lost, going with the flow, and people watching in sentosa.
9. eating hot soup in the hawker center.
10. discovering cool brands like fox fashion and osmose.

here's wishing for more savings to get to take more trips.



in other news..

doing what we can.


my friend tammy, who like us all, is doing what she can to make this world a better place, works for the world youth alliance. she shared that "viviamo" means "we live" in italian. we live!! we are alive!!



if you are interested, please do click on the logo above, and sign the charter to join over a million young people from around the world who believe in the dignity of the person.

GoD bless us all in our quest to make this world a better place!

I've recently been to Macau. It is a great place to visit. I recommend you to take the SkyJump at Macau Tower.

Anyway, to the point, I am now planning to take another trip. And the toss up is between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. Question, from your recent visit to Sing, is it a better place to go to than KL? Thank you and as always, God bless.

wow, singapore! dying to be there. God bless always, Bianca!

pbb_adik said...

not much to see in singapore. pero after a hectic schedule, i always enjoy chillin in singapore botanical garden reading a good book... night safari is really astig! i've tried it with friends the last time i was in singapore. next time naman pang-araw na ako, singapore zoo naman.

singapore grand sale is always June. Takashimaya lang ako lagi and nearby Orchard Road malls. Pero last time, nagtrip kami sumakay ng bus to try Little India kasi mahilig ako sa scraf at shawl. Dami bargains dun at wagi din sa mura ang food shops!

at syempre pa, mostly business trips ako dun, may privelege ako to stay in nice hotels. Shang ako last time. but friends told me that there is this 7-star hotel under construction.

pareho pala tayong addict sa travel. I wish someday magkasama tayo sa travel.

Did you try queuing sa DONUT FACTORY sa Raffles City? Umaga pa lang haba na ng pila! Pero infairness kakaiba ang dough. Hindi sya pwede i-compare sa Krispy Kreme or Go Nuts. Ang dami din choices ng flavor.

may nagpost pa nga ng shot ng pila sa youtube! sikat na sikat yun sa singapore...

aperire said...

Hello, Bianca. I've been reading your blog and from where you write all I can see is your beautiful soul. You are an inspiration.

hi supergirl bianca!

Ang ganda mo talaga kahit sa pictures. Ang galing ng photographer mo ha...ganda ng shots. Thanks to mori! I have a crush on you not only for your beuaty but for your personality and wit as well. Ang sarap mo ciguro maging friend. Sana pwede ako. I've seen you in bora last summer and i want to take a picture of you and me together pero inunahan ako ng hiya. Sabi ko kasi sa ate ko na magpapapaicture lang ako pag si bianca ang nakita ko sa bora. Andun ka kaya inaaasar ako ng ate ko hanggang ngayon.

Well, i envy you coz you've been in singapore and had fun there. I wish someday i can also visit the place too. So damn beautiful.

Sayang nga pala kasi wal ng BLOG. I always watch that show. Sayang 1 year lang kayo but i realy enjoyed the show.

Have a great day! Peace out! Ciaoo

wow. i'm actually eyeing Singapore for a visit..i'll figure it out when i come back from my loooonggg vacation here in England.

Have you been here? you should see London at it's finest hehe and the Stonehenge off course..plus the Bath Abbey and the Bath Romans/ Kings and Queens Bath hehehe i got butterflies in the stomach feeling when we visited those places last week.

PS: some people go bank-overdrawn pag nagshopping because sky-rocketting high ang mga prices pero there's a place here in England that is 60% lower then the RRP. Clever eh? a total shop-retail teraphy hehe..100++ signature and local shops are participating...the place is called Clark's Village in Street,Somerset. You might want to see the place on your visit...Cheers mate.

Anonymous said...

medyo late na to..
but i just want to share na mas ma aapreciate mo ang isang place if you can stay there longer..like at least two weeks..
you get to have a better glimpse of their culture, their way of life, their values..at mas na iincorporate mo yung differences and similarities..ng culture mo sa kanila..

i've been to singapore also..stayed there for a month..
i especially like clarke quay..
i tried g-max reverse bungy..grabeee..tapos after nun kinwento ng friend ng sis ko na few weeks before..someone was thrown away by that thing..and died..whew! wala lang kwento ko lang..hehe

have you tried it??
you have really pretty pix..
keep on "picturing"..hehe

keep on traveling..tapos post mo sa blog mo..parang travel blog ..so cool! God bless..AMDG!
