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.

Product Review: Maxi Peel Zero

Nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty. - Coco Chanel There are so many ads shown in media about skincare products for pimple & acne removal and at the same time for smoothening and lightening of facial skin. Usually, these are skincare products that exfoliate the skin to remove the skin impurities brought by exposure to nature, pollution and even the cosmetics you apply on your face. Exfoliating the skin would mean darkening of the skin first, then peeling, last is the reddening of the skin.

I have tried facial exfoliant before but after a few days of using it, I have to stop using it completely because it was so painful. My face felt raw, even the touch of the wind or water on my face was so painful. I have to cover my face with my hanky because even a whiff of wind hurts my face. My face became reddish, it looks I've been extremely sunburned.

I received sample products from SampleRoom and one of the items  I ordered…

What's in a life of a Work-at-home Mom

"Work-life balance is not a reality. You need to strive for work-life integration or work-life blend. My family is most important, but my job is also an important part of who I am and I want my kids to appreciate that." - Overheard at She Runs It Working Mother of the Year Awards

I need to work John's salary is not enough to provide for our family.
My Boss didn't approve my leave advise, he said I already incurred so many leaves and it's just a quarter of the year.
It's Jena's recital, David wanted me to attend because they have a sales meeting, but I said you should be the one to attend, we have a quarterly meeting as well.
