Opening Ceremony tee, Rick Owens Lilies skirt, Céline Cabas tote, Converse x Missoni Auckland Racer sneakers and super old H&M sunglasses (similar here).
What can I say? Just another old epic Singapore adventure with my fam bams! We did this quick 5 day trip to Singapore a week after our wedding since we had to do a Chinese dinner there and cos Nadja baby had never been! It was great to see my grandma finally getting to play with Nadjaboo and my little nephews were so good with her!! She’s such a tomboy anyway so she just wanted to play with the boys..ok I’m going off on a tangent here, there aren’t even any pics of Nadja in this post.
So yes looking back at these photos now, all I can remember is the delicious food and surprisingly, not sweating too much. I mean it was back in December..but if you know anything about Singapore, it’ll be that 1. The city is notoriously a little too clean and 2. It is basically summer weather there all year round. This time round, we stayed at Lloyd’s Inn for the first time and was thoroughly impressed that a hotel could combine both incredible branding, minimalism and homely comfort so well. During our stay, I had serious intentions to just never leave our mini-apartment and move in permanently whether they would let me or not. The room we had was 2 floors where the sleeping area was on a lofted level. The craziest part was the outdoor bathroom though. It was ooookay (I’m more for a well-ventilated marble bathroom but we can’t all be so picky now can we) and though I managed to get two mosquito bites ON MY BACK while showering..I still loved the novelty of it all. We ended up just doing lots of walking around and plenty of eating. After being in Singapore so many times, we finally managed to make it out to the Garden’s by the Bay to check out the Super Trees. They were so ginormous and pretty especially at night and as everyone else says, you really feel like you’re in Avatar country. Definitely worth a visit if you haven’t already! It’s FREEEEE!!!!
The little pool at Lloyd’s Inn..I use the term “pool” very lightly here. We went swimming the next morning and kept wondering if the hotel staff were just watching us through the window laughing that a bunch of out-of-towners were basically swimming in their “display-pond”.
At ABC Artisan Boulangerie Co. – guys I’m dying you have no idea how much I love bread.
At Raffles Hotel for Surrender, APC and Front Row Store.
Stopped in Sunny Hills for a little pre-lunch pick me up! I didn’t know they just serve you for free so I felt really bad and bought a whole box set of their delicious pineapple tarts!
Hi guy ✌
Walked over to a random tech shopping mall just for Old Street Bak Kuh Teh!!!
Endless refillable bowls!!!
Headed over to our favourite Little Dröm Store in the SOTA (School of the Arts) building to check out my friend Melly (from Greenlaundry!!)’s little pom pom collection :D Get them on her etsy store too!!!
Next door was this really beautiful Japanese-feeling cafe and shop called Kki Sweets.
Super cute wooden spoons
Dying, this rice container was so amazing.
More eating…we made our way to Tiong Bahru and stopped by FortyHands so Eugene (sha’s bf) could get his coffee fix.
Omfg my favourite Chwee Kueh rice cakes with preserved veggies.
DYING OF SALIVATION RIGHT NOW
We ended the night by visiting the amazing Super Trees at Gardens by the Bay. They had a Christmas fair going on so you can only imagine how many people there were so we didn’t get to go up on the bridges to walk around (I would’ve been terrified anyway lol I’m so chicken when it comes to heights). I first spotted the trees on Melly’s blog and am so happy I finally got to visit. Next time we’ll try go during the day instead!
