At home in SG

Currently writing in Singapore while hubby is sleeping beside me. (Yes, only the two of us traveled because his left foot is still in a cast due to his Achilles tendon operation last month. Waah, one month nang walang sweldo, hehe.) It was our first time to ride the plane together–Melvin and I. (Oh, I forgot to take pictures!) I had to accompany Melvin to fix some papers here and take IELTS exam for the processing of his visa. I still don’t know when are we returning to the Philippines (thank God for the dependAnt’s [yes, that’s what they call it here, although I think it should be an E and not an A, right?] pass, I had to purchase one way ticket for myself, which btw cost twice the regular SQ ticket because we had to leave immediately so that Melvin won’t miss his exam. (We could not fly with Cebu Pac because he had to go down the plane with stairs if we choose the said airlines. Meanwhile, PAL costs more than SQ. And I love flying with SQ, that’s why I am so biased, hahaha.) Another exam is due on the 30th of June and we are praying that he could walk without crutches by that time. (He needs to be back for work sooooon!)

I am in Singapore again, but this time, I think I’ll be staying in the house most of the time, just like yesterday. (I went to Yew Tee Point yesterday though to withdraw some cash, then headed back home. First time to ride the bus by myself. I usually ride the MRT or get a taxi everytime we are here.) Oh no, I was looking forward pa naman to shopping, hahaha. Anyway, so here I am, reporting live from Choa Chu Kang Crescent, Singapore.ย 

No pictures. I can’t believe that I only took one pic (except of course Melvin’s disorganized things), which was uploaded in my FB and Instagram accounts. O well, getting used to SG I think. ๐Ÿ™‚

Shopping attempt

So I went shopping yesterday, thanks to my hubby who gave me more than enough so I can buy anything I want (with limits of course). It was unplanned. He requested me to buy pineapple juice, which can only be found at Lucky Plaza (Filipino shopping mall) in Orchard Road. He said that he is feeling dizzy lately (might be high blood–no Lord PLEASE) and that he needs to drink PJ. Kaila did not want to go with me because she was watching Disney Channel so I decided to go alone. It would be my first time to go to Orchard alone, although we’ve been there a few times already. We usually go there by taxi because of Kaila. Only once did we ride the train. I chose to ride the train though; it was faster and more practical. Success, I did not get lost. ๐Ÿ˜€

Two hours of window shopping and I gave up already. I could not find anything that interests me–blouses/shoes/bags. I already went to several famous (as well as designer) shops–ZARA, MNG, Forever21, Gap, Charles & Keith, etc etc–but did not find anything that suits my taste. What I shopped? Two blouses for Kaila (haha, you always include your daughter when you shop) @ S$20 (sale), 1 Lacoste polo shirt for mom-in-law @S$119.00, and 1 for me! @S$139 ( stripes because I love stripes). Finished shopping already, haha.

Since my friend requested that I buy her Royce’ potatochip chocolate, I went to Takashimaya to get her a box of these famous chocolates from Japan. Reviews say that these chocolates are very delicious so I also bought some for my sister and my friend’s daughter (who loves chocolates). I also grabbed one for myself. Hehe. Such a sweet tooth. Of course, I did not let the day pass without tasting these luscious treats. For myself, I tasted NAMA Chocolate (Au lait). Here it is:

melts in your mouth. and hands.

Nice packaging right? These chocolates have to be kept inside the fridge because they easily melt in your hands. How did I manage to brought them home? The store provided me with an ice pack and a cooling bag to keep the chocolates from melting. Wonderful. ๐Ÿ˜€ Guess what. My shopping-for-a-new-wardrobe attempt ended up as shopping-for-chocolates-for-pasalubong. I spent S$75: 2 NAMA chocolates (au lait and bitter flavors), 2 chocolate bars, 2 potatochip chocolate.

Of course my mission not yet accomplished, I proceeded to Lucky Plaza to buy PJs and some cheezewhiz. Spent $39.90 for 3 1.6L cans of PJ and 2 large cheezewhiz. Went home by taxi for S$18.

Yes, yun na ang shopping para sa ‘kin, hahaha.
