I know it has been a looooong while since my last post, cuz my poppy finally gave up on me 😐 
I lost the photos from fashion week, just a day after I posted the Lee Cooper show, luckily my classmate Nicole has a copy, for every single day. So expect a late Philippine Fashion Week post. Its better late than never. Woot—
Moving on.

Arrival—-
The 3 hour flight was not bad, since I mastered the art of being able to sleep anywhere, from my 3 hour Gensan-Davao-Gensan travels every week.
What I Wore. Avengers Assemble shirt from American Boulevard. Red pants from BAYO. Punks not Dead leather bag. Beanie from Khush Crochet – Trinoma.
When I travel, I like wearing beanies or bonnets, just so my hair wont get super messed up. As if its not messed up enough. Haha. Its messed up perfectly, just the way I like  it.
Derp faces everywhere.
We checked-in at Mandarin Orchard Hotel, its located at the heart of Orchard road, perfect, ze shopping district, in the same building they have the Mandarin Gallery, Marc by Marc Jacobs is just down stairs. And our next door neighbour is the 3 floor H&M Singapore.
We got there pretty late and almost all the stores and restaurants are closing, luckily we met a Filipina working at the front desk and told us the directions to a food court (forgot the name), just a couple of blocks from our hotel, famous for its Peking duck and fresh seafood meals. The food was great.
Peking duck & pork.
After our late dinner dropped by 7-11 for some snacks and a slurpee.
If your dreams don’t scare you, then you’re doing it wrong.

ZZzzz….

DAY 1 | NOV. 12. 2012
Little India—-
We plus ones went to Little India that morning, while the bosses had their meeting. We rode a taxi to get there. Since we had no idea which buses to take. We went there despite the idea that the place might be packed since its Diwali, the hindu festival of lights. But we  managed to get there pretty early, so the crowd wasn’t too massive.
Uhm, excuse me, do you have any available flying carpets? Tee-heeee….
Thanks for this photo Al. 😀
There were carpets as big as a room. 
Indian embellished sandals. Love the craftsmanship, and the bead works, so I got myself a pair.
It took them a while to get me one that fits perfectly. All cuz my feet are not small, that’s a better way to put it. Hahaha!!! Credits to Al again for this photo! 😀
For some reason I wanted to buy a set of these Indian bridal jewellery, but I have no idea where to use them! And its a bit pricey for a I-just-want-one-cuz-I-just-do buy.
Check out the bead works. Wow. Was inspired by this piece, will try to learn how to achieve something like this.
A few blocks from the Mustafa mall there’s this row of gadget stores, that had cheap prices even for the latest gadgets, I was this close to buying a Samsung S3, that is only SG$585. But I need a new laptop more than a new phone, my BB is still working flawlessly, and my 5 year old Acer is dying. Hence the blogging hiatus. (A moment of silence for my hard drive that lost all my files…huhuhuhu…)
Street decorations for Diwali.
Banggels for Miss C.
Indian made, 100% pure leather sandals.
Evil eye bracelet.
Stuff I bought from Little India.
Derpina waiting…
 LBD from Bauhaus Abreeza. Sunnies from a random store on Orchard road. D.I.Y kicks by moi.
Yoyoyo—Yohji Yamamoto
Can you smell that? I think its Christmas, nope its the smell of credit cards being swiped at this moment on every store on this road.
A quick stop at H&M while waiting. The store is packed!
Marina Bay Sands—–
Cracking nail polish fail. -_-‘
Boingk.
The Sky Park features a 360 degree view of the Singapore skyline.
The view is breath taking, good thing I’m not afraid of heights. F yeah.
Was humming Highway to Hell before Papa took this photo. LOL.
Tweet-tweet-tweet

50% chances of rain. Good thing I brought an umbrella. 😀

Well that was fun. Tomorrow is another day. Tee-hee..
