After a 1 year hiatus, JP & I managed to come back home for a visit to S’pore. Not much has changed since our last visit. High rise buildings and modern shopping plazas are still under construction in and around Orchard Road, but some things remain constant, and that’s the huge selection of delectable food & treats.
Do enjoy my photo diary of this long overdue trip back home. I’ll be posting additional photos each day.
Now here comes the food & shopping!
The weather in Singapore has been pretty cool this year with less humidity and rain. It’s really abnormal weather, but I must confess, it feels great.
I’m back in Singapore for just one day, which means more relaxing time by the pool & good eats. Next stop, Japan!
Since it was NYE day, we decided to have a little R&R. The weather has been perfect, so it was time to pay a visit to the pool and tennis courts!
In about 2 days, I’ll begin sharing some pics from the Philippines! XoXo.
Stayed tuned for Day 4!
You know you’re in good hands when Sephora is in town! Oh, did I mention they also have Sephora at SFO International Terminal. =)
It’s been almost exactly 1 year, since my last visit to Singapore. Everything looks about the same, with the exception of more high rise residences popping up in the neighborhood. Orchard row is still bustling with people, shops, and so many eateries.
In Asia, Mc Donalds has another chain of eateries called, Mc Cafe. The one in Singapore is always packed with teens and young adults. From afar, you can hear “Womanizer” by Britney Spears blasting from Mc Cafe. I personally think it’s a pretty hip place to just hang out!
In addition to Mc Cafe, you can grab some desert and small treats in many small shopping plazas. In SF, I love egg puffs, but here in Singapore they have sponge cake treats that are made right in front of you! They come in plain or glazed over with green tea, strawberry, or cheese. It’s basically fresh deli manjoo.
And , last but not least, they had these gorgeous strawberries imported from Japan on display at the market. I remember seeing the same variety being sold at Mitsuwa in Costa Mesa, but it was just super over priced! In the US, it was just about $30 for a package of Amou strawberries. I guess they are like supposed to be like the “Ferrari” of strawberries from Kyushu, Japan. Aside from its hefty price tag, these strawberries looked juicy, bright red, and just perfect.
Stay tuned for more entries in my travel journal from HK, Singapore, Philippines, and Japan!
