School is finally over for Aryanna and I just finished working on a project for ten straight days. It’s time for a much-deserved vacay!
What better place for mother and daughter bonding time than a trip to Singapore! Wooooohooooo!
Thanks for bring the girls to the airport. Goodbye boys!
Aryanna and I are all packed up and ready to go!
We flew via Cebu Pacific. When flying in Asia, budget flights are King.
We arrived Singapore hungry.
Our tour guide Josephine from the Singaporean Tourism Board brought us to Singapore Food Trail.
When in Singapore, eat Hainanese Chicken Rice! This was cooked perfect!
My new favorite dish: Black Pepper Beef. I believe I ate 3/4 of the serving. PG lang ang peg.
We tried the Fried Oysters with Egg but it was way to oily for our liking.
Special Prawn Noddles
Time for our mother and daughter adventure!
The Singapore Flyer is the best ride to take when first arrive Singapore (and after eating a full meal, haha!)
I’ve ridden the Singapore Flyer many times and each experience is different, especially now that I’m with my daughter Aryanna. It was her first time in Singapore and it was a good first ride seeing the beauty of Singapore.
Enjoy Singapore Flyer by yourself, with friends and loved ones.
Aryanna liked the interactive videos. She was in the zone. I had to force her to stop playing. Grabe.
Aryanna enjoyed the magnificent cityscape of Singapore.
Get lucky! With Singapore Flyer’s 28 capsules and each capsule’s maximum capacity of 28 persons, the evident figure of 28 means “double prosperity” or “easy to prosper” in Cantonese.
Next stop, Gardens By The Bay!
There are several attractions at Gardens By The Bay but Aryanna and I decided to concentrate on two areas: The Flower Dome & Cloud Forest
As you enter Garden By The Bay, you are welcomed by these man-made Jurassic levelz Supertrees. Whoa!
How the Supertrees work
Did you know?
The Supertrees are embedded with environmentally sustainable functions like photovoltaic cells to harvest solar energy.
Supertrees are made of four parts: reinforcement concrete core, trunk, planting panels of the living skin, and canopy.
While waiting for our guide Josephine to get our tickets, photo ops na!
Kalerky, lalaki ng langgam sa Singapore! LOL
Welcome to the Flower Dome!
Did you know? The world’s largest columnless greenhouse, the Conservatories’ glass sits on a steel grid that acts like an eggshell.
Aryanna and I were lucky to visit the Flower Dome when we did as they had set it up in preparation for Easter Sunday. Check out the festive Easter garden!
Air is cooled at the lower occupied zones through chilled water pipes in ground slabs, while warm air is vented out at the top.
My lovely daughter sitting inside the Easter Pagoda. Todo avail ka lang, Aryanna!
After a leisurely walk and 10,000 photos at the Flower Garden later, we hopped over to the Cloud Forest.
Ascend to the mountaintop in comfort by lift before descending via two walkways in the clouds for an aerial view of the canopy and mountainside below. Learn about unique biodiversity and geology of cloud forests and the environmental threats they face within the nine unique zones in this cool-moist Conservatory.
Sometimes getting lost means…
Finding paradise! Very Avatar lang ang peg nito.
If you’re afraid of heights, don’t look down. Aryanna and I were not afraid.
On top of the Cloud Dome mountain you will find the largest Agate! Tingnan ko lang kung kaya ‘to ng coffee table n’yo.
I love this area that’s at the back of the waterfall! You could hear the thunderous sounds of the waterfalls but feels calming at the same time.
All that walking made us hungry. And when in Singapore, eat hawker food!
Our guide Josephine took us to Boon Tat St. for dinner located in the Central Business District of Singapore. Yes, it’s located right smack in the busy streets of SGX Center. Roadside dining is possible in Singapore because there is no pollution in the city. You can eat and breathe fresh air at the same time. I only hope for this in Ayala Avenue.
According to Josephine, we must try the satay and coconut rice.
Ah, ganoon? 15 sticks of chicken and 15 sticks of pork satay and extra rice please!
One of the best grilled prawns I’ve had but the most difficult to eat too! Lakas makagutom nito! Haha!
What. A Day.
It was filled with fun adventures and yummy food trips with my daughter. What a great start to our vacation!
Shoppingero/shoppingera, tune in for Part 2 of our Singapore escapade!
