Shades and Shorts (Kinda Day) in Singapore.

So I had a very short trip (3 days) to Singapore for work. Well, it might not look like a work trip if you see the photos, but trust me it was for work.

It’s been almost three years since the last time I visited Singapore, well four if you count a four hours transit in Changi haha. Anyway, this trip was exciting for me, not only that I got to do what I love (traveling, taking good photos) and got paid for it, I also got plenty of things to post on my Snapchat and Instagram. Yes, happiness is that simple (or shall I say, shallow?) sometimes.

The first stop was PasarBella, a huge food court that sells global cuisines and Singapore’s freshest produce, wines, craft beers, and groceries. I decided to taste their famous crackling pork (this one is a MUST) and paella fried rice.

Tiong Bahru was next. It has plenty of clean white, unique architectural homes and it’s full with artsy concept stores, restaurants and coffee shops. I actually really enjoyed strolling around in this area, despite of its very sunny and dry weather. Shorts, tee, shades, and a pair of comfy sneakers were the perfect essentials.

I dropped by Plain Vanilla Bakery and was immediately hooked with their cupcakes, especially the salted caramel one.

Not far from it, stood a place I could called home. Books Actually. A book store that sells like numerous titles of books and magazines and old stuffs from around the world. This place could really make me poor.

After Tiong Bahru, Marina Bay Sands was next. Decided to spend the golden hour on MBS deck and just simply waited for the sun to set behind the city’s towers. Not your usual sunset, but it was still beautiful. Sadly, I didn’t get to capture it. But at least, I had my OOTD photo taken.

As I said earlier, Shades, Shorts, Tee and a pair of comfy Kicks are best for sunny and dry weather. Shades & Tee: H&M; Shorts: Pasar Baru; Kicks: Nike Airmax.

The day after, first up was brunch at Boufe. But the place was closed. So, Wild Honey at Mandarin Gallery came up as a plan B turned plan A. It’s a very nice place to have breakfast or brunch, since it’s indeed their specialty. They turned various breakfast dishes from around the world into a more appealing and elegant look.

European breakfast. This is one of their signature dish.

The big brunch got me bloated. Suddenly all the walking felt challenging. Me and my friends decided to hop on a bus and went to our next hotel, Lloyd’s Inn. It’s a very very very simple, minimalistic and Instagrammable hotel. The interior was all white and clean.

Chillin at Lloyd’s. There’s actually a mini garden at the back of my room and it has this enormous comfy sofa. Outfit details: Shades & Shorts: H&M; Tee: Uniqlo.

Last stop in Singapore was the Siloso Beach. I was hoping there would be sunset to watch, but voila, it was all gloomy so yeah. Boo…

Well, to sum it up, 3 days in Singapore was still undeniably fun. I’d definitely always wanna come back and just explore this city a little bit more.
