Singapore Trip 2010: Strolling around the City

On my 5th day at Singapore, I went to Bugis to buy some pasalubong stuffs and visit the Bugis Temple to pray. I found a lot of good stuffs at Bugis market and I was able to eat Wall's icecream bar in Ube Flavor while strolling around. The Auntie was friendly during that time. hahaha! After Bugis, me and my kuya went straight to Vivo City to meet my former boss. Before we meet my boss, we ate dinner at Yoshinoya. I ordered Teriyaki Chicken Rice Bowl and Iced Milo. While my kuya go for Beef Rice Bowl. Singapore's Yoshinoya tasted much much better than our Yoshinoya in Manila. I wonder why?

After our dinner we met my boss. My kuya went home and left his one mobile phone for me. Me and my boss went to Ikea our first stop for that night. Ikea Singapore is big and has lots of stuffs to offer. My eyes were so overwhelmed with all the furniture for small spaces. I got some ideas on how I will design my small house. After Ikea, we went straight to Clark Quay for dinner again. We planned to go for a boat ride but it was late already. We walk around the area. We went to the restaurants beside the river, I saw crabs.. very huge crabs! We went to Fullerton hotel, view the Sea lion, Singapore Flyer, Amphitheater and the great Marina Sands. We stopped by at Coffee bean to rest and enjoyed the view. Below is a summary photo collage of my strolling adventures from Clark Quay to Coffee Bean. Pardon for the pics.. my camera really sucks when taking pictures at night time.

I went back to Manila last July 10, 2010. I super enjoyed my vacation and I was very happy to see my kuya (eldest) again.. we haven't seen each other for 15 years. Thank you so much Kuya Jovy! You're blessed because you're a blessing to others. Our family here in the Philippines loves you. Be safe always! okidoki! ;)

I would also like to thank my former boss.. Ma'am Consuelo for accompanying me on my 5th day at Singapore.. thank you! Thank you!

So that's all my friends! One of my wishes came true.. I already visited Singapore! Yehey!

Thank you Papa Jesus! ^_^

Singapore Trip 2010: Sentosa

Before going to Sentosa, I bought a McDonald's Strawberry milkshake at Choa Cho Kang and a frozen yogurt at Vivo City. Sorry I forgot the name of the yogurt store. The milkshake was creamy and refreshing. Same with the yogurt but Red Mango's yogurt is much better in my opinion.

After those refreshing desserts, I went to visit Sentosa with my Kuya to watch Songs of the Sea. It was so amazing! The laser show was so awesome plus the beautiful fireworks. I believe there's a similar show in our country, it was just opened lately in our Manila Ocean Park. Anyway, it's so unfortunate because I wasn't able to buy tickets to Universal Studios. Well, that will be my next itinerary when I get back to Singapore next year for vacation. By the way, there's a new attraction named iFly but it is still under construction. It will be open on the 2nd half of 2010. iFly is the world's largest skydiving simulator. Hmmmm.. coolness! I want to try it but on a second thought.. can I afford it???

Singapore Trip 2010: Singapore Zoo

I visited Singapore Zoo on my 2nd day at Singapore. Glad that my kuya has a discount privilege given by his company. Singapore Zoo was so big.. It's better if you have a bottled water, and wear comfortable clothes and foot wear because you're gonna walk a lot and the weather is humid. I was so very excited. It was my first time to see a real Polar Bear.. It was so Big and Cute! I also had a chance to watch the elephant show and feed an elephant for Sgd5. The proboscis Monkey is a really weird animal because of its nose. The White Tiger... ooohhh.. I was scared when I saw them. My kuya told me that there was an incident at the Singapore Zoo where one of its employees has been eaten by the White Tiger. You can check You Tube for videos. The sea lion, walrus, and penguins show was also great! The featured sea lion was so talented and witty. Overall, I enjoyed strolling and watching animal shows at Singapore Zoo. It's a must place to visit for tourist like me especially if you have a kid with you. ^_^

By the way, I don't like the KFC at Singapore Zoo. I should have tried to eat at Ameng instead.

Singapore Trip 2010: Ais Kacang

Uncle Albert (a Singaporean) treated me a sweet dessert named Ais Kacang. It is Singapore's version of Philippines' Halo-Halo . The ingredients are Aloe Vera, sugar cane syrup, sweet corn, red beans, colorful shaved ice, jellies, milk and I don't know the rest.. ahahaha! The taste was a bit weird but it's delicious.

Thanks Uncle Albert! I'll visit you again in Choa Cho Kang on my next vacation at Singapore.

Singapore Trip 2010: Brunch at Day 1

My kuya brought me to Singapore's famous food store.. Hawkers at Bukhit Timah. I ordered Pork Char Siuw and Iced Milo. I was surprised with their big servings. And oh my.. it was so delicious! or maybe I'm a bit biased because I love to eat Chinese foods. The food prices at Hawkers are so affordable for a Tourist like me.

Very Affordable + Big Servings = Super OK! ;D

** Pardon for the installment post of my Singapore Trip 2010 photos, I'm so busy at work. I just really want to share with you my adventures.

Avatar: The Last Airbender

After watching The Last Airbender movie, I was so curious about the series. Why? Because my boyfriend and most of my friends didn't like the movie. They have lots of rants. When I told them that the movie was good, the common answer that I got is "you should watch the cartoon series of Avatar/The Last Airbender". So I got a copy of the series from a friend and started watching it last Monday. And the result.... I'm hook with it! The story is great.. it is more detailed and funny. :)

King Bee Restaurant

Again this post is also so overdue. I just want to share a collage of my lunch experience at King Bee's Restaurant at Sta. Rosa, Laguna dated May 2010. I was with my boyfriend and his friends. We ordered two tone rice with 2 sauces, Beef in Chinese style, siomai, chicken feet, shrimps and I forgot the names of the other dishes. The foods that we ordered were delicious except for the chicken feet because I haven't tried it. The price range is reasonable. The ambiance is also good. I saw a lot of families having lunch at that time. One thing that I noticed was the restrooms were small but in fairness it was clean and complete with toiletries. My overall experience at King Bee was Great! I will definitely come back.. but maybe in their Quezon city branch.

Saint Monique Valais

Saint Monique Valais (aka SMV) has very beautiful and peaceful environment located in Pantok, Binangonan,Rizal. Even though it is far from Makati my tita decided to avail one unit of Nicole Townhouse. And one reason also is my Kuya Eric's positive comments about it. He lived at Saint Monique Valais for more than 3 years and he's also our agent. He's my cousin. His units are Dominique Duplex type. For me, it is really really far but a really lovely place. The village has a lot of amenities such as swimming pools, chapel, picnic area, basketball courts, chapel, school, and an infinity pool. There's a service shuttle that roams around the village to cater residents that has no cars. A Nicole Townhouse unit is Php825,000 with a lot area of 45sq. meters. My tita avail it through Pag-Ibig Financing. Below are some photos of the Model Townhouse house unit.

We visited Nicole last June 2010. We took a few photos of her. The unit is not yet finished, there's still a lot to fix plus there's a move-in or permit to occupy fee.

In my last collage photo, I inserted a photo of the lot measurements which I got from But the rest of the photos in my photo collages are all belong to me. The camera that I used is my Sony DSC-W120 Digicam.

My First 3K Run

This post is so overdue. Last May 30,2010, I joined Nature Valley Run organized by Coach Rio. It was my first 3K run and I super enjoyed it. The event was so organized, lots of water station, and freebies too. I couldn't believe that I could make it up to the finish line because I have an MVP condition. Honestly, my program is 2 minutes run - 1 minute walk but since I have MVP, I did more walks than run.. ahahaha! I'm planning to join Coach Rio's Run Leg 3 on November 2010. 5K run??? I think my mom will freak out at me.. but I really want to try it. ^_^

Teamwork = 1 week Starbucks Coffee

My Team Lead will treat the Cloud Delivery-M3 Apps team for a 1 week Starbucks Coffee.. yippee! The story behind that treat is..last July 29,2010, one of the leads organized a dinner-videoke night for July 30,2010 at Balay ni Juan, Pasig . They observed that not all the members will come to the event. So our PM emailed the team and our team lead replied back if everyone is coming he will treat the team for the whole week at Starbucks. His 3 conditions are:

1. Join the event
2. Drink Beer
3. Sing a song

Because there's TEAMWORK in our team, everyone decided to go to the said event. My team lead was surprised when he saw that all the members were present. I couldn't describe his facial expressions during those times. We even took a few photos for evidence.. ahahahaha! Cruel teammates! Anyhow, the videoke night was a blast! Everyone is laughing, singing, enjoying the mini videoke party and the foods were great. By the way, my team lead sung the song "Malayo pa ang Umaga" theme song of ABS-CBN teleserye Agua Bendita.. ahahaha!

Thanks to TEAMWORK.

Thanks to my Team lead for the treat.. you're so generous! :D

So my dialogue for this whole week is:

"1 Tall Caramel Macchiato, Decaf, please".

Or I might try some other drinks. ;D
