Singapore May 2014 Photo Diary

Hello, everyone! 

It's been two months since my Singapore trip, but better late than never! Unlike my Seoul trip which was lengthy, my Singapore trip was short but very eventful and easily my favourite trip so far. It was the first time I got to travel without my family or friends coming with me which made it even more exciting but still slightly scary. In a way, I needed a vacation from everything as well, since my Seoul one was actually quite stressful.

I went to visit a very dear friend of mine, Summer, who I have not seen since 2012. I loved catching up with her and am grateful because she graciously took me where I wanted to go (and fed me all the yummy food). Thank you again, Summer! <3

I didn't want to do anything too exhausting when I arrived, so I saved the tourist-y places for the succeeding days. 


We went to the shoppes (I don't know why they spell it this way but oh well) at Marina Bay Sands the following day, since I didn't get to check it out the last time I went to Singapore. It was nice to have a look around, and question a few things such as the canal inside the shoppes. For ambiance I guess?

We visited Gardens by the Bay after looking around and eating lunch, which was just a few minutes away MBS. Both the Cloud Dome and the Flower Dome were lovely to visit and a good way to appreciate nature and how it works, as well as the different varieties of plants.

Probably the most tourist-y place of the lot was the Merlion, but I knew I had to see it at least once. It's quite an interesting landmark, and it was even funnier watching people do several silly poses with it.

Visited Chinatown the following day. I don't really remember why I wanted to go, but it was an interesting place as well with a lot of cheap souvenirs and very colourful temples and streets. I also read that this is the cleanest Chinatown in the world, and I can say that's true. 

Admittedly I don't have much pictures this time since I either a.) took them with my phone or b.) visited it already before on my first trip. I might be doing another series of pictures with a specific theme from this trip and my Seoul one, so stay tuned!
