DAY 1: Travelling with "Noelle"

Bought my first brogues days before my SG trip! :) I got Ichigo Shoes' Tan Noelle Brogues for P880 at Glorietta's The Ramp! I love that this brand carries really pretty flats suitable for travelling in style--without compromising the comfort! :)

Airport Outfit:
Worn with a nice checkered double-button jacket, brown bubble skirt, and Anagon wired headband! :)
Effects lang yun kamay, kay Alli yun! Hehehe! Photo taken in our room in Rucksack Inn 2! :)

 But before that....
Airport with Ate to meet Alli. Meet our terno luggages and pillows! :D

With Alli in the Airport! Bought SBC panini for on-plane breakfast!

Welcomed by SG with a heavy downpour! :D 

Met Geo in our backpackers' hostel (Rucksack Inn 2)! She had an earlier flight, and had to sleep in McDo to wait for the sunrise! :D

First Day Shopping!
Changed into roomier clothes to shop shop shop on our first day!
Beanie (H&M), Floral Jumpsuit (worn as harem pants), Studded Denim Vest (DIY), Tan Brogues (Ichigo)
This is the same jumpsuit from the Accessorize event! :)

Lunch first! Walked to Chinatown for really cheap and delish treats!!!

I love that they offer so much options for the vegetarians! :D

My yummy vegetarian meal, which costed me less than P100!
Oo, inulam ko yung hashbrown! :)

Milk Teas na same price as our meals:
Geo and I challenged ourselves to a search for the best milk tea in SG!

More Chinatown strolling!

With one of the new friends with met in our inn! He's the one who recommended Chinatown for our lunch!

Nabaliw sa SG:
Went CRAZY and WILD shopping in ION Mall for Rubi shoes and Cotton On!!! :D
Wasted almost the rest of our day there! Nakakaadik yun shoes nila! I bought a pair of clogs at P600ish lang!

Rested our aching feet with a merienda in DON, a conveyor belt sushi restaurant!

Stroll Around Clarke Quay:

We decided to end our first day in SG by strolling SG's nightlife location: Clarke Quay! Which is just walking distance from our inn!

Decided to change into a comfy white shirt, denim shorts, and pulled back my hair with my reversible beanie (also the one I wore earlier, now in its white-black stripes side! :)) Still in my Ichigo brogues :)

The killer "parang-garterized-lang" ride! :D
We saw the reverse bungy, GX-5 extreme ride..And decided to go for it!!! :D

We watched a group of really big fat guys ride the GX-5...And hindi naman nasira. HAHA. Ang sama ko!
Now or NEVER! Kailangan makasakay na bago pa umurong ang tapang ko!
Geo didn't want to ride with us at first, but the lokong operator offered us SGD5 discount for each ticket if we can take Geo with us! :D

And sooo... we did it! :D And survived!!!

Beside the two girls who survived ang aking malutong na pagmumura in mid-air:
Oo, kung san-san ko na sila kinukurot nyan, hahaha!

Umiichigo Brogues padin kahit sa reverse bungy!
Di ko cinarry belles to promise!

More around-the-city photo ops! :)

Sa fountain...

Sa may puno...

Sa may kalye....

Parang day-off lang ni inday! ;D

Thanks SG for welcoming us with a bang! :D Hahaha! :) Three outfits in a day, kaya wala nakong masuot nung last day e, hahaha! :) 

Thanks girlies! :) <3

Geo's FB post today, day after our trip: "Hey Ana Gonzales Belline Allison San Pedro I read this quote on the TV screen at the Dhoby Ghaut station while waiting for the last train that I rode for this trip - "I am not afraid of tomorrow for I have seen yesterday and I love today" by William Allen White. wehehehehehehehehe natawa at natuwa naman ako, I think the quote is for the 3 of us. I miss you guys already.... see you soon."



  1. You guys look like you are having an awesome time! I love milk tea, just tried Bubble Tea on Wilson and I need to learn how to make jasmine milk tea myself!
