Secrets to Singapore

Recently came back from my trip to Singapore. Been mentioning it before, but living in Bangkok is heaven when it comes to traveling around! Took an express visit with 3 days, and to be honest, it is (almost) enough! 20.000 steps each day proves our commitment to the touristifying of the city. It was a lot of places and things we didn’t have the opportunity to visit, but here are just a few suggestions from my trip.

Marina Bay Sands and Gardens by the bay

Disney world on speed! It seems like the architects and garden planners here had something to do with the movie Avatar. While walking here you are surrounded by plants from the future, and buildings that seems to take you to there. Put on some comfortable shoes (do not do like me), and just walk around in this «garden» for hours. Try some local specialities at the «Satay», and watch up on the «spaceship building». Do not go there yet, save it for the evening!

 

Singapore Art Science Museum

Geek allert! I have been studying chemistry and physics, but this is really a museum for everyone! Singapore Art Science Museum have several exhibitions, but Future World is what really got our attention. It was an interactive, inspiring, fun and educational exhibition, really mixing science and art. I would also recommend to bring your kids here, as there were a lot of activities and fun for kids to try. 5 out of 5 from me!

Singapore by night

Yes you’re right! Put on those heels and get up there. Singapore skyline is waiting for you as you sip on that long drink. And hey, it doesn’t matter which sky bar you go to. Just find you favorite and watch the view. It is spectacular! (For those wondering, yes we went to the space ship aka Celavi. Couldn’t go there without checking out Bangkok’s big sister)

 

Sentosa Island and Universal Studios

If you wanna have some fun, head over to Sentosa Island. The island of fun offer everything you could wish for.  Sentosa offers waterparks, aquariums, and museums. The choice is yours! As the landlubbers and speed junkies we are, our choice ended at Universal Studios. Already been to the one in Florida, but this one was no disappointment. Decent choice of rides for «grown ups», and when you just cannot behave and stop dancing when you hear the lyrics «I like to move it move it», you know this place is for you. And sorry for the lack of pictures, someone was having it too much fun!

Singapore has a lot to offer other than this, not to mention the tons of malls and opportunities for shopping. Did I mention that they have a (regular) Victorias Secret store there? Almost reason enough to go. The city is super clean and beautiful, and just walking around is an experience in itself. Not to talk about the food, as the multicultural diversity entails a lot of amazing cuisines to try. Bon voyage!

Fashion Army

SHOES: F21 // DRESS: ZARA // BAG: BALENCIAGA // SUNNIES: CELINE

No secret that one of my favorite colors are green, military style. Especially these days I’m surrounding myself in everything of this color. I guess it is my way of dressing «winterly» in the lack of seasons. Well, if I cannot wrap myself in chunky knits, at least I can commit to the colors. Btw seen these shoes? Takes one hour to get into them, but what does one not to feel a bit Kardashian for some hours. And these shoes I could never use in Norway at this time; SCORE!

Shoe Heaven

 

Popped into YSL this week while I was in Singapore (new buys coming up), and lord give me strength! The shoe rack presented at YSL these days are no more than fab. Silver, black, white and nudes are going straight home to this girl. Give me some khaki Tributes and I’ll walk that extra mile on the treadmill today (IN them ofc). But no matter of all the inches these shoes were trying to fight over to get ones attention, my attention was drawn to the black slippers. Slay as we say.

The Week that passed

Yet another week has passed, and so quickly! Sunday updates now became Tuesday, but you know what, better late than never. This week has been the week for trying new stuff; Thai cooking class (went a little over board with the pictures), Virtual reality gaming, Indiedish delivery, and a trip to a new country. Could not wish for a better week. Did not bring my computer overseas, so updates from Singapore coming soon!

The week that passed

A new permanent post coming up on Sundays; the week that passed (through my story lense). To reminisce is always important, and pictures make it easier to keep those memories. So here it goes, a little flow of those small moments from my week.

 

Broccoli Revolution

 

I have to admit, I’m no vegan or vegetarian person, but after moving to Bangkok I have found myself craving greens, nuts and seeds more than ever. Don’t understand me wrong, I LOVE thai food, but it does not, as you might have thought, have a lot of vegetables. Also everything is cooked in a way or the other, and strange as I am, I prefer my food cold…  This has lead me to discover the many great vegan and vegetarian cafes and restaurants around. Broccoli Revolution; no disappointment! A large menu to choose from with everything from Thai dishes to European selections and freshly cold pressed juice. I have tried this place as both dinner and lunch spot, and both things work perfectly.

ADRESS: 899 Sukhumvit Road, Klong-Nua, Vaddhana, Bangkok 10110.

Busy Bangkok

SHORTS: VINTAGE LEVIS // SHOES: ZARA // BAG: BALENCIAGA // SUNNIES: VINTAGE FOUND

Bangkok oh so busy. Getting around in Bangkok is a challenge, and a skill you need to develop sooner than later. The infrastructure is poorly developed, and the public transportation is rather limited relatively to the size of the city. This leads to the thousands of traffic jams and road blocks throughout the day. I don’t even wanna think about how many hours I have spent in a taxi just waiting. (An extra power bank and numerous of hours of scrolling Instagram have saved me here). That everything and everyone is out on the streets doesn’t exactly help the traffic. Cars, busses, scooters, taxis, food stalls, old ladies selling their things, pedestrians (because sidewalks are non existing), dogs, you name it.

So girl, if heading to Bangkok I recommend you to always add 15 min extra to your schedule, marry google map, jump on the BTS for longer distances and get comfortable with riding on the back of a taxi motorbike. Good luck, you are probably gonna be late anyways!

Classic stripes

DRESS & SHOES: ZARA

Long skirt, long sleeves and a collar; too many red lights that just screams stay away! But hey, I fell in love with this dress the moment I put it on. The colors and the fabric of the dress is amazing. The cut and the shape also make it work, even though it has all the warning signals written all over.

Now I’m heading to a late lunch before we are bouncing over to Neon Market that just opened here in Bangkok. TTYL.
