Early drinks - Bar One

Deciding to have drinks early, I'm sure it's an appropriate time of day somewhere I'm the world!

But I did sees the waiter serve someone a beer at breakfast, so I'm not that bad!!

Happy snaps outside the bar, a sneaky pic of the cocktail and I had desserts afterwards haha all before lunch! Oops

I'm wearing Witchery shorts and flats, sass and bide tee. With forever21 denim shirt and alexander wang bag.

Crowne Plaza Galleria - Manila

So we have checked into the last hotel of our trip, and it is at the Crowne Plaza Galleria in Ortigas. Basically right next door to Robinsons Galleria shopping mall and The Holiday Inn hotel. Which is where we stayed at the beginning of our trip.

Just a few days here to relax and chill by the pool before we fly home!

I don't want to go home though?!

Solaire Resort and Casino Manila

The new Solaire Resort opened just before we got back from Singapore, and we had been meaning to visit. Mostly because every time I get into a taxi there is an ad on the radio about it!

So we finally found the time to head out to be all touristy and visit. Solaire is apparently the first of four resort/casinos that will be built out off Roxas Blvd in the new Entertainment City. It's also not far from the Mall of Asia (MOA) for all you shopping needs!

I definitely recommend a visit to Solaire even if your not the gambling type, you just have to go and be in awe if the size, and beauty of the place! Oh and the service is amazing, I was even given an offer to play in the private lounge!

And yes I won some money!

Forever21 in Makati

Technically I was after stripe denim jeans, but all I found was a jacket, so that's close enough right?

And I grabbed the white top because the fabric felt soo soft! Oh and some bracelets.

They seriously need to open a forever21 at home because they have tones of clothes, the stores are huge and the prices are crazy cheap! I think that denim jacket costed me just under $30!

Ysl sunglasses - Yves Saint Laurent

New purchase that literally stopped me as I was walking by. A sign that says sale, and an amazing pair of sunglasses that had to be mine.

I actually wanted a white pair of sunglasses too! So it was kinda perfect. Even though when I was trying them on I was slightly distracted by a Celine pair but these caught my eye first so I take it as a sign. Haha, yup that's how I justified the purchase to myself!

Shopping spree day - Topshop, Mango Fashion, Zara

With only 10 or so days left of my holidays I decided I should have one more big shopping spree. So today we headed to Trinoma mall, it's nice and open, big and spacious. It gets a big crowed on the levels with fast food / restaurants. And if your up for a bit of a walk you can head over to SM North and The Block which is where you'll find Forever 21. Trust me it is a bit of a walk!!

Back in our hotel, I took a few hurried pictures of some of the things I purchased today before rushing back out the door for dinner!

So if your ever just looking for a shopping/holiday trip I can definitely recommend coming to Manila. Not just because there is a huge mall in every suburb or even two. But your always getting a good deal with the exchange rate. So It doesn't hurt my credit card too much!!

Marina Bay Sands Hotel - Singapore

As much as I loved the other hotel we stayed at in Sentosa, nothing beats the amazing view from the Marina Bay Sands hotel!

From the roof top infinity pool the view of Singapore stretches as far as the eye can see. It is absolutely stunning that you just seem to sit and stare into the distance. You must go to the 57th floor day and night to see the city and obviously go for a swim, why else would you check into this hotel if its not to use the pool?

As it was our last day in Singapore we decided to order room service for breakfast! It was for 2 but definitely could have fed 3 or 4! And it is also a must to visit the Marina Bay shopping mall, just make sure your up for a good walk as it is HUGE! But if you get tired you take a gondola ride inside the mall!

After just a short visit to this place i cannot wait to come back! I never thought I would enjoy it as much as I did!

See you soon Singapore!

Singapore Botanical Gardens - Orchid gardens

Going to every mall possible does get a little tiring, so we decided to do something touristy and visit the Singapore Botanical Gardens, which is around 100 acres of land space! So I doubt you would get around it in a day.

We went directly to the Orchid Gardens, I seriously thought the flowers were fake until I went and touched them! I'm not overly a garden type of person, but it was really tranquil to walk though the parks, a lake filled with all kinds of fish and turtles!

Within the Botanical Gardens, there is a wonderful restaurant surrounded in trees and palms. While we were eating I got to see my first squirrel, running and jumping around. The food was amazing and service you receive in Singapore is excellent no matter where you go.
