Universal Studios Singapore

With our recent trip out of the country, hubby and I made sure that we had an entire day dedicated to visiting Universal Studios, a theme park located at Sentosa Island in Singapore. Also, we scheduled it on our last day so that we could easily leave our hand luggage at the visitor's lounge and head to the airport and catch our plane back to Manila right after. Everything worked well as planned and sharing a bit of story of our visit.

This was around 10 in the morning. The park can be packed with both local and foreign tourists.

Checking the map, the girls were giddy and ready to go around.

It was a hot day. Thanks goodness they had strollers that could fit 2 kids at the same time.

This Puss in Boots ride had the longest line. I waited a lot for hubby and Askim to be done.

This area looks like somewhere in Eygpt. Your highness Queen Nefertiti, where are you?

Passing by Sesame Street, we spotted Abby Cadabby and asked for a photo op.

It was a day well spent at USS. This photo was taken before taking a taxi to Changi Airport.

Until next time, Singapore! :)

Merlion + Singapore Flyer + Gardens by the Bay

Do you agree that no Singapore trip is complete without visiting Merlion Park or other tourist attractions around the marina bay for that matter? I believe that the iconic statue of half lion and half fish alone is a very famous souvenir photo background for visitors. I tell you, the first time I step foot in the area, I immediately got amazed by two things, first, by how diverse is the crowd in that place, second, by the expensive price of common snacks (e.g. a cup of soft ice cream); perhaps because of the popularity of the place and the seasonal influx of people.

Hubby took lots of photos but unfortunately most of them have random people beside us. Lol.

The Merlion Park has an awesome view of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel.

This is at Journey of Dreams, a mini museum where the making of Singapore Flyer is in exhibit.

Riding the giant ferris wheel will give you a fantastic 360° view of Singapore.

Here is a zoomed photo of Gardens by The Bay as seen from the Singapore Flyer.

We thought we could enjoy Gardens by the Bay before sunset. Too bad the lines were too long.

And the little one started taking her afternoon nap at her father's shoulder.

I really love the garden in the city concept of Singapore. I mean, you can see lush of greens not in parks or the huge Singapore Zoo alone but also in highways and other random corners of the city. I like the fact that they are able to maintain a clean and orderly community; I think some of the reasons why more and more foreigners wants to work or live for good in this city.

Our family had so much trip during trip. We will definitely go back!

Litte India Singapore

Hi again! I know I should be updating this blog more often for still have a lot of items in my draft. My goal is to publish them all at least before I go out of the country again, so here is another installment under the Singapore series. Let me tell you about this one particular place that both hubby and I liked so much during our quick Singapore trip, a neighborhood popularly known as Little India. This is where we found affordable and authentic Indian cuisine.

The streets are remarkable as they look distinct from other streets. They are more colorful as they are filled with shops like in the photos, small stores selling bargain products from clothing to cellphones, and tourists and local shoppers including Indian women in beautiful saris.

This is the Indian grocery where we bought water and snack items. They have cookies and biscuits, canned goods, spices and grains. Hubby was supposed to buy some grains but changed his mind upon realizing that we didn't have check-in baggage allowance going back home.

These flower garlands are just too pretty to ignore. I think they are to be worn by Indian couples for their wedding. Those white ones are sampaguita or jasmine in English. The red ones are roses. The yellow ones, I am not sure. It looks familiar but I don't know its name.

Here is the colorful facade of the Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple taken with flash at dusk. I took sometime adoring those little statues of Indian images. Aren't they lovely?

Inside the temple is just as colorful and alive. Entrance is free. One only needs leave his shoes by the gate, enter barefooted and remain quiet while inside the temple as form of respect to those who are praying or performing a ritual.

Whenever we go visit Singapore again, I am 100% sure to visit Little India again. :)

Switching to pH Care Naturals

I just ditched my old feminine wash and switched to pH Care Naturals. I got this super cute wooden crate with 2 of the newest femme products from pH Care Philippines the other week which I right away added it to my bathroom essentials and now helping me to feel naturally fresh and clean everyday.

Two of the main ingredients in these all-new pH Care Naturals line are papaya and guava leaves. As we all know, papaya is a popularly used in whitening products while guava leaves is famous for its medicinal compounds.

As someone who grew up in the province, yours truly is a big fan of guava leaves because of the antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and antibacterials agents they contain. So, I am happy to be one of the lucky bloggers to receive these products from pH Care Philippines.

I also believe in the whitening ability of papaya as it contains a natural enzyme called papain which mainly promotes exfoliation to reveal newer cells and softer skin.

Women these days are faced by different challenges when it comes to their sensitive area of the body. Some women complain about having dark skin, making them feel less confident in wearing a swimsuit; others suffer from itchiness and infection. Good thing the people behind pH Care have a thorough understanding of these concerns that they were able to come up mild and effective intimate care products using natural ingredients from papaya and guava leaves.

If you are still using a random product and not even sure if it is really safe to whiten your intimate areas, I suggest you switch to pH Care Naturals with Papaya Extract now. It is a whitening feminine wash that can keep you fresh and fair at the same time because of its natural ingredients.

I am now a fan of pH Care and currently using the pH Care Naturals with Guava Leaf Extract. I am confident with this product. I helps me feel fresh, clean and odor-free.

These products are now available at a leading supermarket, drug store or beauty store near you. The 50mL variant is P49.50 while the 150mL variant is P104.
