What I Did | Singapore

Monday, 24 August 2015


Last week I hopped on a plane for a spontaneous visit to Singapore to visit my friend Bronwyn for a few days. I had such a good time exploring the city that I thought I would share a little photo diary of the adventures we got up to during my trip! 

Monday

HK International Airport


After dropping my bags off at home, we visited Gardens by the Bay in Marina Bay. 


Satay by the Bay was located right next to the garden so we stopped by the little stalls which were selling satays priced at 70 cents per stick

After dinner we took the lift straight up to the very top of Marina Bay Sands and had a drink at C'est La Vie ending the night with this beautiful view.



Tuesday



Tuesday was a beach day. Bronwyn and I decided to hit Sentosa early in the morning to bag a sun bed at Mambo Beach Club. Lucky for us, there weren't that many people on a weekday so we had it mostly to ourselves. 


Wednesday


When I told people I was going to be visiting Singapore, everyone insisted that I stop by Lady M for coffee and a slice of their famous Mille Crêpe cake which is exactly what we did on Wednesday after a day of shopping at Orchard Road.


Clarke Quay is the place to go if you're wanting a night out with friends. This was taken in Attica Club


Thursday 




I completely fell in love with PS Cafe located in Dempsey Hill. Surrounded by greenery and wide open spaces, it is the perfect place to stop off to have lunch or a quick coffee.


Friday

Friday was unfortunately my last day but we managed to make the most out of it. Tiong Bahru is one of the oldest and 'hippest' hood in Singapore and that's where I spent my last few hours in the city.  


Books Actually (9 Yong Siak St) is hands down one of the coolest bookstores I have ever been in. Selling Sam Riviere's poetry named 'Kim Kardashian's Marriage', this indie bookstore is filled with other gems that will make you want to spend the entire day there. 


A few doors along is the Plain Vanilla Bakery. You're immediately greeted by swings and bicycles lining the storefront and the homey atmosphere inside. 

My last stop was Forty Hands where we went for lunch. Being known for 'serving the best coffee in Singapore', I ordered an iced latte and pork katsu toastie and was not disappointed. 

I feel like I managed to cover a lot of places during my time in Singapore and it is somewhere I definitely would like to go back to. Thank you so much to Bronwyn for having me and I'm sure if you keep your eyes peeled, you'll be able to follow our adventures in Hong Kong sometime in the near future.
