Day one in Singapore!

Today I should be doing a post for Wednesday Wardrobe Challenge, but I am home sick - boo! I'm off to the doctors a bit later on though, so hopefully the sickness won't linger for too long.

So in lieu of a outfit post, I thought I would show you some of my holiday photos - my first day in Singapore to be exact.

I arrived in Singapore about midday, but by the time I got to the hotel it was already about three a clock! (I should point out, I did get a little bit lost).

When I had settled in, I went to catch up with Chloe of Wasted Fashion - it was so lovely to meet Chloe and she was so awesome during my time in Singapore.

After Chloe took me out for a late lunch, I did a little bit of exploring around a very small area of Singapore - mostly around the Esplanade/Arts Centre.













Clearly this is going to be a very photo heavy post! Just a few more to finish off, whilst I was in Singapore there was an arts festival on which was a celebration of Chinese Culture. On my firest evening in Singapore I was lucky enough to see a Cantonese Opera as part of the festival and the best part was it we free! (some parts of the festival you did have to pay for but there was loads of stuff you could see for no cost).

Here's a couple of photos of the opera, the costumes and make up were stunning and they also did fighting moves during the opera. Rad.

Looking at these photos is making me want to plan my next trip - luckily my friend Jess (who is a travel agent) sent me so specials for Samoa this week! Whoop!

all i can think about when you refer to samoa is:

1. samoa girl scout cookies
2. eagle vs. shark (stop calling samoa!)

i want to live where you live.
