Singapore, or ‘Singa Pura’ in Sanskrit, means Lion City.
Now that’s a majestic name for a city, wouldn’t you say?
On this trip to Singapore, I explored everything this city had to offer. I was there for 5 days, got little sleep, and tried to pack as many activities as possible in the short amount of time I was there.
My travel buddy was a good girlfriend, Miss Chinese Toronto 2016, and we travelled to Singapore to attend the wedding of our other pageant friend, Miss Chinatown Singapore 2016. We all met during the Miss Chinese International Pageant 2017 in Hong Kong, where I represented the Vancouver title.
The direct flight from Changsha, Hunan, took 4 hours. A few hours after boarding the plane, I was in paradise!
Day 1 & 2
I hit up Kampong Glam for Indonesian food and Teh Tarik, Orchard Street and Dover Street Market Singapore for some window shopping, and checked out the National Gallery of Singapore. Have a look at all the random friends I met along the way!
We started the day off with a traditional Singaporean breakfast in the Tiong Bahru neighbourhood, and walked around Tiong Bahru Market. The day continued at Marina Bay and Merlion Park with some breathtaking views. For dinner, we met the bride and groom for Chinese-Singaporean food at Two Chefs. Ever heard of milk powder ribs? Take a look below!
There’s nothing like beginning the day off by the pool. The big event of the day was Lovelle and Garrick’s wedding at Sofitel Hotel and Resort on Sentosa Island. Then, the celebration continued at Marina Bay with drinks to end the night. Congrats to the bride and groom!
My last day in Singapore 😦
I checked out the Singapore Art Science Museum and Gardens By The Bay, and had some delicious Bak Kuk Teh for dinner with a new friend. Hear my final thoughts on my entire trip at the end of the video:
In 2018, I explored a lot of places in Asia ( China, Japan, Taiwan and Hong Kong), and out of all those places, Singapore was definitely one of the highlights.
I’ll be back, Singapore! ❤
