Hello friends! I just came back from a wonderful trip to Singapore where I stuffed myself with as much kaya toast as possible, journaled and officially became an instagram wife to my good friend Mons haha.
It’s my third time in Singapore and I did observe that it’s hotter and more humid this time? I changed my shirt around three times because I was sweating too much haha.
It was my first time to try a capsule hostel and I fell in love with it! We got a pod in Spacepod and it was cozy and private. Better than normal hostels because you had a curtain you can lock and it was more quiet inside each pod:
We primarily went there for Gardens by the Bay but it rained on the day we were supposed to go so a lot of areas were closed. It was also super hot and humid that day so we opted to stay in the nice hostel and journal together, which we both enjoyed greatly.
Since we were both big Gudetama fans, we celebrated Mon’s birthday at Gudetama Cafe! I wanted to visit this for the longest time so this alone made the trip worth it haha:
We even wore Gudetama shirts for the occasion 🙂
The newly-opened Jewel Changi was also all sorts of awesome, but what we really wanted was to eat at Shake Shack and visit Tokyu Hands together because we’re both fans of the shop. The line was long but it moved quickly and we were starving and sleep-deprived so we enjoyed our expensive burgers haha:
I regret not buying even one small Pikachu here at the Pokemon store:
The gudetama zodiac toys above were so cute!
You’ve probably seen a trillion photos of the indoor waterfall at Jewel already, so here’s a photo of an installation I loved as well:
I got addicted to these cheesy chicken pops and cheesy chicken balls from Old Chang Kee. We were lucky there was a shop beside our hostel and I think I bought them each day we were there:
The cheese sauce wasn’t too salty and complemented the crispy chicken well. It tasted to me like a mixture of cheez whiz and sour cream which resulted in something really yummy.
For our first night, we prioritized Gudetama Cafe. This had beans, mushrooms and a salad on the side plus bacon and sausage. I think this can be shared, just have an extra order of soup which you can also share:
Since we both wanted to go to the beach but our schedules didn’t sync, we went to the beach at Sentosa, painted and napped:
First time to try cendol!
We visited Bras Basah complex for Art Friend and Cat Socrates:
Met up with my friends and we had yummy satay at Lau Pa Sat:
Haji lane was as colorful as I remembered.
For our last day, we visited Little India and Clarke Quay. I enjoyed painting at Clarke Quay while we sipped Liho Singapore tea (Fruit tea with fresh watermelon, grapefruit and other fresh fruits inside):
We left Singapore with this glorious sight in the plane window:
P.s. Made a flipthrough of my Singapore travel journal! Check it out below:
