Travel Fashionably From Head To Toe Around South East Asia

In case you’re not familiar with my traveling style, my traveling style is something in-between a budget traveler and not-so luxurious one.

I mean, I’m totally fine with the idea of staying at a cheap motel with a small room as long as I could get a quality time through doing my makeup without any disruption. I’m not exactly the kind of person who would ask for a pic anytime I see a good stop for the ‘gram, but clothes and makeup are the essential things for me to travel comfortably.

I’m not exactly fashionable, as I’m kind of a sucker when it comes to the idea of mix and match things I’ve got in my clothes. However, I’m not exactly a t-shirt and jeans kind of person either.

So, if you could relate to the situation and you’re planning to travel around South East Asia, let me share with you the tips and trick on how to travel fashionably in this part of the world! πŸ˜‰

Indonesian vs Singaporean Guys: What It’s Like to Date in This Part of the World When You’re Not A Crazy Rich Asian

Hello, strangers! πŸ˜€

Do you still remember Shi Hui from IreviewUread? Because if you don’t recall the name, then I’d suggest you check on a few collaborations that we’ve done such as on my monthly feature Around The World With The Beauties, as well as the weekly $10 series covering Singapore.

So, in case you don’t know, we went to Kranji Memorial Park together on my last trip to Singapore. We were supposed to create something together, but then again the hot weather in the city-state sort of killed the mood so we ended up doing nothing.

However, we keep in touch and voila, after some packed schedule due to Asian Games for me as well as some ‘experiments’ Shi Hui had with some Singaporean guys to answer the questions that we’ve got, finally the answer is here…

I swear to God it’s a perfect time as it’s finished not so long after Crazy Rich Asian released. We didn’t even know about the movie when we planned out this collab. πŸ˜‰

Another Bucket List Checked: Kranji War Memorial, Singapore

Still another post related to my last Singapore trip! πŸ˜€

As I mentioned earlier, if there was one place that I really wanted to visit in Singapore, then that would be Kranji War Memorial. I don’t know how many times I’ve been to Singapore by now, but I’m not going back to some recommended places for tourists like Gardens by the BayΒ or Universal Studio. πŸ˜›

The thing is, lately I always have this urge to visit the cemetery wherever I travel, especially if it’s a war cemetery… Why? Because I suppose that’s the best way to remind myself not to take life for granted. But other than that, there’s something that makes me want to visit the cemeteries even more.

It was when one time, I posted a pic I took at Taukkyan War Cemetery on Instagram. Another user randomly commented it telling me that her Grandpa is there. I was confused what she meant until she explained that her late Grandpa was a soldier for the British Army and died in Myanmar during World War 2.

She never got a chance to visit his grave in Taukkyan, but she got his block number and left it with me just in case I’m coming again for a visit. I was a bit emotional when I exchanged messages with her through Instagram DM.

Review: Spacepod@Com Kallang, Singapore

Hi everyone! πŸ˜€

As I mentioned last month about my plan for a short trip to Singapore for Arsenal, I’m back! And yes, I managed to travel light with just one trolley bag that weighed less than 10 kg for 3 days… And I also succeed to stay at a capsule hotel for my 2-night stay there.

While this might be something so normal for you guys, those were all my first times for me. So I’ve done a little progress by completing the mission to travel around Singapore, backpacking style. *lol*

Anyway, a few days ago I made a poll on my Instastory post and the result was that 80% of the voters chose the review of the capsule hotel where I stayed in Singapore instead of the new train from Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. So, as I promised… Here I am writing a review of the capsule hotel, Spacepod@com! πŸ˜€
