Singapore February 2015 Part 2 – Orchard

Last February, JRunway flew me to Singapore for a campaign shoot. I arrived a day earlier to visit my older brother who’s been living there since October last year. It also gave me an excuse to take a break and go shopping!

Shopping at Orchard is the best thing ever. One of the reasons why I can never quit going to Singapore is the tax-free shopping. I feel like tax-free shopping discourages me from going all-out in Manila, since I know I can get things for a cheaper price elsewhere. Case in point, getting 10% off on electronics in Japan.

A treasure trove of everything quirky and adorable.

Everything in this store begs the question – IT’S SO CUTE OMG I WANT IT… BUT DO I NEED IT?

WHEN IN ION ORCHARD. Can I keep the whole COS store, please?

Of course, I also went to the Kate Spade Saturday on the lower floor. Need to buy everything before they totally disappear.

The next morning, my younger brother and I went to ION Orchard again to visit ION Sky. No entrance fee, omg

I’ve never had a good aerial view of Singapore before, so I figured this time would be the perfect time to finally cross it off the list.

This is why it’s awesome to travel with my younger brother. I end up going to really good restaurants for my meals.

Normally I eat really crappy food when I’m on my own because I hate having to go through the process of ordering at restaurants when I’m rushing to visit as much touristy spots as I can.

I need to have big windows in my future home.

After lunch, we walked around Orchard some more, and I got kind of lazy to take photos. We did go to Haji Lane later that afternoon, but I’ll save those photos for another post.

Killer shoes.

Lots of unique-looking shoes in Singapore. Harajuku street style fans would go crazy.

‘Til the next Singapore post! I’m actually going again next week, but not for work this time. Hopefully, I get some much needed rest and relaxation since most of my trips this summer have all been work-related.
