WARNING: EXTREMELY LONG AND PHOTO-HEAVY. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.
So I treated my mom to a 5-day trip/vacation to Singapore for her birthday (I booked a bit early as I’m not too busy these days) and it was a really fun, long weekend. I promised her, however, that the next time she goes there with dad, Imma make them stay at the Fullerton and not at some red-district hotel like the one I booked for us. I hate myself sometimes, you know…
Also, I don’t normally blog about my travels and the things I see and do but I felt the need to write about this because uhhh… *points to title*
1. That you only need 4 hours or less to enjoy Sentosa.
“Wut? Wait, where am I? Huh? I’m such a tourist! Look, I even have a Sentosa map!”
The resort-island is apparently a must-see in the country and of course, we didn’t miss out on the chance to hang-out there, too. But after we’ve tried the Luge and Skyride and saw the dolphin show and the Underwater World thingy and went around to see some stuff, we were like “Uhm, what else do we do?” The other attractions didn’t interest us anymore but that’s just me and my mom- totez non-outdoorsy people. There were also “beaches” there but lolz I’m Filipino and I know my beaches.
2. That gay friends are made of rainbow-colored, glittery awesome.
Shan in blue and Jose in white. Fabulousity personified.
I met up with a very good friend, Shan Plameras who is now working there. I knew him back in college and even after graduation, we also worked together on some shows. He introduced me and my mom to his other friend, Jose, and I swear to gawd they’re half of the reason why my mom and I enjoyed the trip so much. Our tummies were hurting from laughing so much. We hung out on Friday night at Clarke Quay (more on that later) and on Sunday, they toured us around the malls of Orchard road and made our stay truly worthwhile. Thanks, badetssss!!!
