My Singapore Haul

A few days ago was my birthday and the Lord blessed me to celebrate it in Singapore. Singapore is known as the melting pot in Asia because people of different cultures blend with one another to form a singular society. It is also a haven of mix cuisine from China, India, Malaysia & Indonesia. Singapore is also a paradise for shopaholics around the world. I am not a shopaholic, but I enjoy buying a few pieces, especially if they come in very cheap.

The purpose of my trip in Singapore was just to visit some of its popular tourist spots. I stayed there for 3 days & 3 nights, so I don't have plenty of time to visit all the known places in Singapore.

I went to Kampong Glam which is a national heritage district in Singapore.To get there, I rode the MRT to reach Bugis Station and it is a station away from Lavender, where I am staying. After going around Kampong Glam, I continued to walk until I reached Bugis Street and I went crazy looking at the various goods sold by the merchandisers. Bugis Street is the equivalent of our Divisoria or the Ladies' Market in Hongkong. Bags, shoes, men, women & children apparel, trinkets, chocolates, food stands and various souvenirs abound this place.

Cotton t shirts with different Singapore logo designs are sold for 3 at 10 SGD. I  was able to buy it in a stall selling it at 4 pcs at 10 SGD.

Key chains are sold for 10 SGD at 24 pcs, but I found a lone stall at the end of the market selling the same key chains for 10 SGD at 30 pcs (that was such a bargain)!

This 2 key chains, I bought for myself are priced at 2 SGD each.

I bought this cute back pack at 10 SGD.

While at Chinatown MRT, I spotted a store selling all chocolates at 1 SGD each (ang sarap mag panic buying kung marami kang datung)! The name of the store is Valudollar, which has several outlets in Singapore.

In Jurong East, IMM Mall is selling branded items at 80% discount all year round. I bought a Charles & Keith bag and an Under Armour cap & string bag.

Those are my small haul from Singapore, which I happily share with you. Thank you for reading. Stay tuned to my coming Singapore post.

Middle life is beautiful.

Till next time. God bless.

Singapore:Day 2 Kampong Glam, Sentosa, Universal Studios Singapore

I was supposed to start the 2nd part of my Singapore trip last night but because of a lot of work at the office (making up for the days I was away from work), I was so tired when I arrived home. I'm missing Singapore already so I'd better start my blog right now!

Anyway, day 2 started earlier today. While Charmi was still sleeping, I sneaked out of bed and took a bath. The bathrooms at Meadows Hostel where we stayed were very clean but you have to bring along your own toiletries because they are not provided. No need to bring towels, they will provide it, and before I forget when we checked in, the receptionist gave us 2 free adapters. By the way, I booked our hostel via No credit card  or prepayment was required, I paid in cash at the hostel.
Before taking a bath, I took my breakfast and I have the pantry by myself. The pantry has an overview of the sky rise buildings in Singapore and I was enjoying the sprinkling of rain. It was a beautiful morning, no hurries,…

How can Midlife Women Live Longer?

How long do you want to live? 80, 90, 100? But the real question is," how can we live longer?". To live longer entails keeping our bodies in good health, in good shape, nurturing our spiritual growth, and caring for our family. According to data, a woman turning 65 today can expect to live on average until 86.6 years of age. I stumbled upon in internet a life expectancy calculator, this calculator computes the additional life expectancy of a person. This is how it works: I input my date of birth then it calculated that I will have an additional life expectancy of 33.6 years! Wow!

The truth is there are several factors that contributes to increase or decrease in life expectancy. These are:

1.  Current health- are you in good health? suffering from an ailment?
2.  Lifestyle - are you a smoker? drinks excessively? does not exercise? parties too much?
3.  Family history - is there a member of your family who has cancer, diabetes, hypertension?

Smoking, drinking too much alcohol, …

Anyong haseyo (pronounced ahn-yo-ha-say-yoh)! Korean beauty is the mania these days, everyone is all agog with the perfectly, glowing, white skin of the oppas and unnies. While browsing over the internet, I came across this product Seoul White Korea, I looked it up and learned it is sold at Watsons. After enjoying the sweltering heat of summer in the beaches, my natural morena skin became darker and duller.

There was Seoul White Korea Soap and Seoul White Korea cream in tube and sachet. I took down the ba…
