8 Things I Learned in Singapore

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!!!

  4. Good to know that you had a great time on your trip. Bonggang-bongga ang bonding moments with mommy! 😀

    I am also hoping that i can do the same for my mom. Siguro giving her a free trip abroad will make her really happy at fulfillment din yun for me as a daughter.

    Nwei, baka yan na ngang batang makulit na yan ang soulmate mo LOLZ 😀

  5. Hainanese Chicken? Newton Circus 🙂 On using up your savings – at least enjoy … now back to the Salt Mines of Ortigas 🙂

  6. Awww, I would love to treat my mom like that as well. You’re such a sweet daughter. 🙂

    LOL @ graphic-laden cigarette packs. Actually, some groups are pushing for the same “packaging” here in the Philippines, by having a bill passed by Congress to implement that kind of measure. If all falls into place, there will be emphysema-inspired photos in your favorite Marlboro lights soon. 😛

    @ umleo
    We wanted to watch the Songs of the Sea but it’s kinda late so we decided to ditch it instead. 😛 Also, I didn’t tell any of my friends there that I was even going to Singapore expect for Shan. Kinda wanted my mom to enjoy muna…

    @ Kai
    Lolz sure. Might be a while before I got back though.

    @ Mara

  15. Hi! Can i have your email adress as well as your other contact information? We would like to invite you for our media launch

  16. hahaha! funny kid! ladies and gentlemen the future of the Philippines… hehehe!
    yes, i saw that roaming peacocks in sentosa while waiting in line for the songs of the sea 😀
    and yes, four hours (or less) are enough to enjoy sentosa. lol!

    if there are two things I miss in singapore, its their 1) efficient MRT system and 2) the Danish pastries in Raffles! Yumeeee!

    Goodluck sa PBA!
