TRAVELGRAM: Singapore, The land of the lion.

22 October 2014.

I consider Singapore as a lucky country for me, traveling wise. As of this writing, I’ve been to Singapore twice and both trips were FREE! The first time I went there was with my whole family. It was a long time plan of my ever-generous sister to have an out of the country trip with the whole family. Unfortunately, my Daddy Yo died before this trip was planned. It was a fun trip though. It’s been years since we had a family trip in the Philippines.

The second time I went there was courtesy of Globe Telecom. The Platinum brand had their incentive program for the Relationship Managers with the most number of Platinum plan upgrade. I got the top spot (with the help of my friends Edgar, Migs, Joanne and Lani-li). My RM friend Leri, bagged the second spot so we were the lucky duo who attended the 2014 Singapore F1 Grand Prix.

Just like my other trips, an airport photo is a must. And I swear Changi Airport is soooooo clean!


Every time I wear my DM’s, I feel like I am a fashion icon. Kaya kahit mainit sa Singapore, Boots kung boots! Lol!


The most excited person in this trip is our baby boy, Gelo. Yes, that’s me at the back wearing my, Uhm… BOOTS!


Good thing my brother was here with us. It means, I am not the official photographer this time.


‘Parazi shot with the immigration representative. Photo by: Yes it’s blurred beacuse, My Sister. PEACE!


More Changi Airport photos.


After we checked-in, we go straight to the City for some tourist mode.


Yes, the pose. C’mon! it’s Judo. Hahaha!


Some photos from our first day City tour. Sorry, first time! 🙂


The street crossing the Marina Bay.


This photo is so OFW-ish. (no offense meant. PEACE!)


More photos at the Marina Bay


Here are our photos at the Singapore Flyer while waiting for our shuttle.


Our official videographer, Kuya Allan.


Before going to Sentosa Island, we headed first to the Merlion Park. Most people say that if you want to justify that you’ve visited Singapore, you should have a photo with the Merlion.


Rest time while watching the Singapore river.

Singtel Payphone. By the way, Singtel is the official roaming partner of Globe Telecom in Singapore.


More photos with MBS as background.


Of course, When in Singapore…

VISIT H&M!!! (although as of this entry, H&M Manila is now open).


And because I am an H&M hoarder, they gave me this $20 gift card. I gave it to my friend though, since I can’t use it on the same day.


…And visit a friend. My college buddy Hazel, who is working in Singapore for 4 years now.

During my first visit, she brought me to Makansutra. It’s like SG Mercato.


On my second visit, she stayed in my hotel room overnight.


Let me also share some photos from our F1 Singapore experience.

Our flight was at 6AM, it was raining hard that time. Me and Leri volunteered for change flight (denied boarding) since the flight was fully booked. PAL gave us a free snack and a free roundtrip ticket to Singapore or lower valid for one year. Call us BAYANI, thanks to Leri’s PAL ways. Apir!


Our free snack from Cafe France.


I just love window photos.


By the way, Alice Dixon was in front of me in this flight. She is sooooo pretty! Here’s our lunch from PAL.


This is my hotel room.


My favorite place, my sanctuary inside the hotel.


Our Kit for the Lotus F1 Paddock Club.


This is Leri, my date at the Dinner with ELC in Marriott Hotel, Singapore. Ironically, ELC was not there but Peter Bithos was there.


We didn’t finish the event and we headed straight to the F1 event for that night. And because of series of unfortunate events that happened that day, we only have few photos. And by few, I mean FEW!

Riding the train going to the event. Atas ang outfit pero naka train! Lol!


Some photos at the event.


Second day, is shopping day. We don’t have much photos that’s why train photos are sweet treasure.


We ate at Marche. It’s like a mini-market. They will give you a card that you can use in buying your food and must be surrendered before leaving for them to know how much you will pay for your food. Yuuuuuuuummmmm!


The sink at the men’s restroom.


We left Singapore the following day. Leri took the 6AM flight and I’m on the 2PM flight. It’s my first time to travel back home alone, but it’s fun!


That’s my Singapore story, hoping to go back there next year. I’ll post my Sentosa Island and Universal Studios adventures on my next entry. I hope you guys enjoyed my photos!
