Fairmont Singapore

My flatmate Krizia works in the travel industry and she was able to score really cheap rates for us at the Fairmont Singapore last Chinese New Year. Thus, we decided to stay for a night during the 3-day weekend. We got it for around S$160 (net) a night which was extremely cheap compared to the usual rate of $370 for that long weekend. Sweet!

River Safari, Singapore

The first time I went to River Safari was in December last year when my brother was here. Early this year, I went back with Alf, also because I wasn't able to try the amazon river quest boat ride the first time I went.

Can't get enough of Bangkok!

I was in Bangkok for yet another weekend holiday in November 2013. I arrived on a late Thursday night and left Sunday. The last time I was in Bangkok was more than 4 years ago, when the airport railway link wasn't open yet. So I was very excited to get to try it.

ParkRoyal on Pickering, Singapore

We had a staycation at the ParkRoyal on Pickering last October and it truly was a staycation in every sense of the word. I wrote in my TripAdvisor review that it is the most beautifully designed hotel I have ever been to, hands-down!

Malacca (Melaka), Malaysia

Malacca was a revelation. Honestly, I had very low expectations for this place but I ended up loving the place. This was another weekend getaway during my birthday in October. I think we found the hotel+bus package on groupon or some similar website. Thank you Alf for this trip! 

We stayed at the fairly new Hatten Hotel, whose lobby (photo above) smelled like a public restroom. That was really a disappointment as the hotel was not bad plus the rooms were very spacious.

Phuket, I'm back!

I was back in Phuket for a 3-day weekend getaway in August last year. This is what I love about Singapore actually, there are a lot of weekend places you could go to either by bus, boat or a short plane trip. Phuket is definitely one of the choices for a short holiday.
