Date: September 28
So, the night before we have sent off the family back to Manila. Now, we’re three!
We had our final breakfast for the trip at Kopitiam.
Then we hit the MRT, without stroller this time. I dared bear the little girl in the sling all day long! Love my Next9 sling!
First stop: Raffles Hotel!
We passed by the Civilian War Memorial Park and saw this! Yes, our favorite bread is originally from Singapore!
Then we went to Esplanade, the famed arts hub of Singapore.
We saw this exhibit inside.
We also saw a familiar word in a postcard.
We went back to Ion Orchard for lunch. We settled in this place.
Then we went back to the hotel to check out and pick up our luggage. Off we go the airport!
When we got home, Aria immediately unpacked her new kitchen set which was a gift from my cousin Mark. She did not wait for the next day to check out her new toy.
It was indeed a fun trip for all of us, especially that this was the first family trip out of the country. We learned so much about Singapore’s culture in those four days. Such a fast-paced country with super efficient public transport system, lots of buildings, lots of things to do and see, and lots of yummy food.
And we are all happy that Aria was really really happy during this trip. Even if we had crying bouts during sleeptime (homesickness, small room and bed), she had the best time cos she still remembers everything up to now, even if she doesn’t see photos and videos of it anymore (imagine she watched the videos for weeks after the trip, even several times a day until she got tired of it!). She calls each Ferris wheel here Singapore flyer, to the amazement of taxi drivers.
Huge thanks go to our cousin and his wife for taking time to meet us and tour us around! Lastly, we thank the Lord for covering us under His protection for the duration of the trip and always. That no one got sick or harmed. Thank You for the opportunity!
And that this happened during my 30th birthday, it was such an amazing experience. All praises for the gift of life, love, and happiness!
Will we go back? Definitely! We’d definitely plan another family trip in two years perhaps, something we’d all enjoy. Any suggestions where?
