Last week, my mum and I went to Singapore. I took a break from taking photos of my handmade flower tutorials. We only stayed a few days but my feet were so angry from walking! We usually leave the hotel at 10am and go back at 10pm! I didn’t shop for pretty stuff this time. All I cared about was eating and taking photos of one of my favorite cities. My internet in our accommodation was not so good plus the computer I brought with me to send the tutorials and to reply from messages was so ancient that it took me a good 30 minutes to reply on each message! I’m not exaggerating.
The great Singapore Flyer that greeted us when we arrived in Singapore.
My mum and I stayed in a budget hotel along Beach Road. We went to see my sister who stayed at W Hotel in Sentosa. It was a newly opened hotel last September. All I can say is this is one of the most photogenic hotels I have ever been! My sister’s spacious suite had a plunge pool, a living room, a powder room, a master’s bedroom, and a really elegant bath that was a lot bigger than our hotel room at Econ Inn (lol).

The hotel’s stylist’s attention to detail is superb…that’s the master bedroom’s headboard.

Bencoolen Link / Waterloo Street
Me and my bad sense of direction. Despite the warnings of our inn’s receptionist, mummy and I attempted to walk from Beach Road to Little India. Well, we failed and took the cab. But before we took the cab, we stumbled upon Bencoolen Link / Waterloo Street that has a lot of interesting sites.

Dried Shiitake Mushrooms mummy bought in a local dried goods grocer.
Dried Chrysanthemum flower pearls that are used in making tea. Yum.
Dried Baby Shrimps
More Dried Seafood
The store owner, whom I call “Uncle”, gave the directions to Little India to my mummy…we still failed to get to Little India on foot. Uncle was really nice.
Paper Lanterns (aren’t they cute?)
Inflatable toys that double as musical lanterns. Mummy and I got to Singapore during the Moon Festival.

Bugis Area is my favorite shopping place in Singapore next to Orchard Road.

Bugis + (Formerly known as Iluma) – Singaporeans take their malls seriously. The geometric facade illuminates at night.
On my next post, I’ll be showing you my trip to Little India.
Love, love love,
