Singapore 2015 Photodiary: Budget Shopping, Gardens By The Bay & Going Home

Here's the last installment of my Singapore 2015 adventure! On our 4th day, we finally got the time to shop a little & enjoy the beauty that is Gardens by the Bay (my first time!). Our first stop was Anchorpoint mall at Alexandria road where the outlet stores of Giordano, Cotton On, Charles & Keith & Typo are found. Afterwards, we headed to Bugis for some more shopping! Since we are a big group, we decided to split, shop alone and just meet an hour later. Effective sha. Spent the rest of our day admiring flowers and green leafy things. Haha. Here are stories through photos starting with some outfit shots!

 FAB top, H&M shorts, Forever 21 hat, CLN belt, Christian Siriano x Payless bag, Keds sneakers

Mejo bumagay my outfit with Gardens by the Bay haha! Love my very summery top from FAB which I wore with my favorite beige H&M shorts & Keds sneakers from their new collection. I'm not very much a fan of Hawaiian like prints, but this one I like. 

Here are more photos from that day!

Gonna miss our home for 5 days! 'Til we meet again Beary Best Hostel!:)

 Hanap hanap exact change for our bus rides!

To know which buses to hop on, download the GothereSG app on your phone. Super efficient & helpful! SG buses have specific stops so better plan ahead or check the signs. :)

 Gala mode on!

Bae. Haha.

 Love SG buses! Sana ganito sa Pinas!

 After almost 10 stops, we were finally at Anchorpoint! Had to cross this overpass first.

 Streets of Singapore

 And cross this street first... Remember, it's just opposite IKEA!


 Hello, Anchorpoint! And bebe boy. Hehe

 Our first stop: Giordano Outlet. Mom and sister bought a few pieces for pasalubong. 

 Not the same brand! Don't be fooled!

 TYPO outlet store! I wanted to buy everything inside but had to stop myself because I had a budget. Lots of stuff on sale!

Bought a few items from Cotton On!

 Was tempted to hoard and pamigay sa mahilig magtinder jan. You know who you guys are. Wahaha!

 Watches for $10sgd for every purchase! 

 Billabong outlet

Decided to eat lunch here. Food here was much cheaper! Ate a lot. Haha.

 My meal! Yummers.

 Hoarded on lip balms and got this one from Watsons. Quite effective! 

 Pedxing Eksenas

 Lakas maka Kathniel! Haha. Candid shot of my parentals while we were waiting for the bus.

 Locals haha

 Next time, I shall conquer you!

 Checking for bus schedules and looking for exact change again. Hihi.

I love bus rides because it's the perfect way to do some major sightseeing....
 Got off at Bugis MRT to do some quick shopping at Bugis Village! My favorite tiangge-an in SG. 

 So many shops and bargain items!

 Had to have my faveorite Iced Milo!

We all separated for an hour (and a half coz I got caught up with it haha) and just met up in Burger King after. Surprised myself 'coz I didn't shop too much! I just bought a nice bucket bag for $25 (been wanting to buy one since my last Thailand trip which was ages ago), 2 skirts & 2 sweaters for $10 each and a SG souvenir bag as my extra handcarry. Woots! 

 Rode the blue line going to Bayfront (Marina Bay Sands) where Gardens by the Bay is located.

 So nice & convenient this new line!

 Ano na Miles? Be good daw. Haha

 Got off at Bayfront station and just followed the signs going to Gardens by the Bay!

 Groufie pa more!

Inavail namin ng bongga the wall decors hihi

 We're here!!! Just follow the signs, forever.

 Nice view...

 Obstruction of view.. Haha.

 Short film showing the effects of environmental neglect. Not a pretty sight:( Quite scary:(

 So mesmerizing the lights!

 Don't miss out the light show! So amazing:) Perfect date activity in SG!:)

 Nico & I didn't want to go back to Chinatown yet, so we boarded the train and visited Haji lane & Arab street!

 Haji Lane at night:)

 Perfect chill out place for art enthusiasts and hipsters. Hehe.

 Arab St. at night. Closed na everything. Best to visit in the afternoon.

 Randomly decided to have late dinner at Lau Pa Sat near Raffles.

Best way to end our last night in SG! Satay, Kway Teow & Tiger beer!

Spent our last few hours on our last day shopping for souvenirs. Amazing race na naman ang peg. Solo solo. Haha.

Lined up for Lim Chee Guan's famous Bakwa or Beef Jerky!

 A little pricey but super worth it!

Some inspiring posters in Chinatown MRT station:)

 May kakambal si Dora! Hahaha!

 Bye, Chinatown!

 My new Bae.:) 

 Changi Airport

 Was able to try out one of Changi's attractions, The Social Tree! 

 Take a photo, store it there and retrieve it anytime. Something to come back to. :)

Nakakahiya ang tagal nia nakadisplay na ganyan. Haha!

 Late lunch:) Surprisingly cheap and delicious food!:)

My lunch. Yum.

 Team SG. Haha! Til our next adventure!

 Thank you to this wonderful lady of Jetstar, a kababayan, for patiently assisting us. :)
