This will be my final blog for our Singapore trip. Everything about this trip is very memorable and still brings nostalgia evertime I think about it. I love this country because their people are very disciplined and the place is also very safe. You can go out at 12 midnight and you will not be scared that someone might harm you. People are friendly and you will not have hard time understanding them since the also speak English. This will just be a photo blog of the random snaps I took in the Lion City.

Our lunch in Ruyi, the cheapest restaurant that we found in Sentosa.

Our dinner in Tak Po where we got surprised with our bill because the peanuts that we thought was complimentary was charged $1 SGD and the wet wipes that we thought was for free was also charged for $2 each. We just laugh about it afterwards because the food was great anyway.

 

Life is beautiful and full of surprises. This travel marks my first international trip and I promised myself that I will never stop exploring the world.

Another must visit place in Singapore is the Artwork in Ritz-Carlton Millenia Hotel which houses 4,200 pieces of art including the artwork of the very popular Andy Warhol. Ritz-Carlton Millenia is surely not your typical hotel where you find luxury in relaxation, but it is also a place where you can see spectacular art gallery. I was really excited about this visit because this will be the first time that I’m gonna see real artwork of the world’s big art names that I can only see on TV or hear in the news.

 

It was said that The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore invested about US$4,000,000 for all displayed artwork in the entire hotel with fifty of it counts as museum quality. Let’s take a look!

On our last day in Singapore, we visited Singapore Botanic Gardens. This is not actually my last blog for Singapore. I still have 2 more that will be posted on the coming days. On our last day we opted to relax since the whole time we were in Singapore we were juggling from one place to another hoping we can make the most out of the trip. My Singapore trip was very memorable because aside from being able to spend time with my Boyfriend, this was also my first international trip.

 

I was not expecting for Singapore Botanic Garden to be so wide, it is 74 hectare. We did not really toured the whole Botanic Garden coz our purpose of going there was to relax and at that time my knees are already aching.

 

I gathered several photos while we were there. Check out my photo blog for the beautiful Singapore Botanic Gardens.
