*SCAPE

Located in the heart of Orchard Road, *Scape is a creative space wherein thousands of young people hang out, collaborate and share their passion for the arts. *Scape offers a wide array of unique and exciting lifestyle products and services as well, with more than 20 retail outlets under its wing! I always love going there because every corner has artworks and installations. You can’t help but be inspired! I love that the government gives their youth the creative freedom to express themselves through art. I wish we could do the same in Manila!

For my last day in Singapore, I spent it attending a few meetings with Singaporean labels (I can’t wait to tell you more about it soon!). I went for something similar as my look in my Gardens by The Bay outfit but went for printed swim shorts this time. I don’t know why but I love wearing swimwear as outerwear sometimes–I’m just weird that way. Ha! I’ll be posting my visual diary from my Singapore adventure in a bit!

KEEP IT LIGHT

Whenever I travel, I always try to pack light (emphasis on the word “try” lol). I usually bring 2-3 pairs of shoes, 1-2 hand-carry bags and repeat a few basics. When packing for a trip, make sure that at least 2 looks have the same color palette so that it’ll be easy for you to mix and match them. It also helps if you pre-style your outfits beforehand–it’ll make your life so much easier! You can take a mirror shot of your outfit so that during your trip, you won’t find a hard time looking for what to wear anymore. Just go through the photos and use it as a guide!

ART ALLEY

On my third day in Singapore, I spent my morning at Haji Lane again to do more shopping and try a few of the restaurants and cafés in the area. I love the fact that I didn’t have an itinerary for this trip. I was at my own pace, not worrying about anything. Except maybe deciding where to eat.

Since I was there to shop, I wore something comfortable and easy to wear. I was decked out in a simple pullover, gym shorts and the most comfortable shoes ever. Anyway, I know a lot of you guys have been requesting for me to post more looks wearing pants. Haha! It was just too hot in Singapore so I didn’t bother wearing one! But for now, enjoy these photos of leg hair in its full glory! Haha! Have a great and productive week ahead!

GARDENS BY THE BAY

What’s a trip to Singapore without going to the scenic Gardens by The Bay? You can spend a good amount of time there exploring their conservatories (may aircon guys haha) such as the Flower Dome and the Cloud Forest. You can also marvel at the towering Supertree Groves or maybe take a stroll along the OCBC Skyway (a walkway connecting two supertrees). Of course, I went full-on tourist and blogger mode and snapped so many photos! I even added elements in my outfit that would complement with the surroundings and paid $5 just to take outfit shots at the hanging bridge! And that, my dear readers, is dedication. LOL.

HAJI LANE

Whenever I go to Singapore, I always make sure to visit Haji Lane. This narrow alley, hidden in the heart of the Muslim quarter, houses a number of independent Singaporean brands. Hipsters frequent the shops along this tiny lane to hang out, eat, drink and shop for offbeat labels which you won’t find in any malls in Singapore. It’s kind of like our version of The Collective in Malugay, Makati.

This day was dedicated for shopping so I made sure I’d wear something comfortable. It got crazy hot during the afternoon so I ended up just wearing the cutoff shirt. Also, don’t forget to wear comfortable shoes because you’ll do a lot of walking in this city! I always go for a pair of sneakers or training shoes when I travel. They make your life so much easier! I’ll be posting my finds from Haji Lane soon!

TOO MUCH DENIM

How much denim is too much denim? As if double denim and triple denim weren’t bizarre enough, I pushed the envelope once more and tried quadruple denim (is there even such a thing?). If I was going to experiment with this style, I might as well do it in another country–where no one knows me and no one would judge me (or so I’d like to think). Singaporeans are very experimental when it comes to fashion so I felt right at home, yay!

Folded & Hung just recently released their denim collection and being the denim addict that I am, I freaked out when I find out that they have chambray shorts, lightweight jean jackets and denim rucksacks! Hmmm I guess you can say that I pretty much hoarded every single item from the collection. Haha! Anyway, since I was wearing way too much denim already, I didn’t want to go overboard and wear jeans. Instead, I decided to wear a pair of chambray shorts. They’re awesome because they have the same wash and color as my jacket and button down shirt–it was like they were made for each other!
