First of all I want to say WOAH, these past two months has seriously has been by far the most busy and the best fun I ever had…and we’re only two months into the year! All I can say is thank you for the endless support!
I was walking through Ewha Woman’s university and just fell in love with the prestigious architecture and the western touches. Check it out if you ever visit Seoul~
Next month is also the official instameet and due to the amazing turnout from October i’m strongly considering organizing another one…though nothing official yet. Please stay tuned ^^. There will be many exciting insta-collabs this February and March so make sure you follow me on Instagram!
Oh and happy belated Lunar New Years! I’ve gained so much weight for eating so much! Eat well, live well everyone!

For the third and final instalment of the Singapore series I wanna tell you guys the reason why I was there and the crazy adventure I had with the hosts of this sponsored trip. So I was lucky enough to be selected by Migme to visit Singapore an experience their culture and futuristic landmarks.
First up, we visited Gardens By The Bay which is like the Garden of Eden preserved inside a beautiful dome like greenhouse. Though beautiful, it looks a bit like a bikini bra from above, and ever since someone mentioned that, I can’t help but slightly chuckle secretly lol. Inside however is any architecture lover’s haven. It was beautiful, tropical and exotic all at the same time.
Next we visited the Supertree grove which looks exactly like a set from the Avatar movie. What I loved about this is that it looks like a mixture of elements from urbanisation and Mother Nature; two worlds in one kind of thing. Going up the Supertree was super fun and the view from above was surreal….almost fantasy like.
Finally we drove to Marina Bay Sands to see the jaw dropping view of Singapore from above followed and concluded by a mouth-watering and intense meaty meal at the Carnivore restaurant on the first floor. The meat was exquisite, juicy, tender…and it was great to be joined by the host to explain health benefits of each selection. Thanks for the amazing adventure Migme!!!
To conclude and in addition, I want to tell you guys about Migme, a social media platform and also the host of this very travel event. Migme is a social and entertainment platform providing chat, entertainment and micro-blogging services. They are particularly popular in South East Asian countries with over nine million users and growing. With Malaysia and Singapore being two of my top 5 audiences, it made sense for me to make an account and expand my audience through this platform. Not to mention, earning stickers, virtual cash and meeting new fans is always fun!
You don’t have to necessarily have to have a blog to join. If you like to meet people and have a little bit of fun online like Facebook, I recommend you to join! Also, Migme will be hosting a ‘Migup’ (a meet up in different countries just like this one) at least once a month. You can apply by filling out a very easy and simple online application here!
Enjoy and good luck!
*Again and finally thank you so much to MigmeHQ for this amazing experience and opportunity*

Ever since my previous trip to Hong Kong I have become a bit of a sucker for architecture. So when I was invited to Singapore by MigMe and Changi Recommends I was super excited to hear that I would be staying in the Marina Mandarin.
Aside the fact that the room view was the iconic Marina Bay Sands (what can be better?), I was actually more impressed by their interior design. It is the type where it is almost impossible to find in Korea sadly. The marble lounges, restaurants, pools, were all top notch however what I really loved about this hotel was their implementation of exotic plants, fountains and other water elements to their interior design. They also had real life birds which chirped (cannot be heard in the rooms) across the open space giving the hotel an exotic botanical garden feel to it.
I remember I asked the receptionist about Singaporean transport and they really took their time explaining the bus routes and the subway system. They were really helpful in making sure I can get most out of the experience in such a short time in Singapore.
Do check out their lunch specials which includes a range of cuisines from around the world. Oh and do be careful their basket of Babybel cheese in the morning as Westerners will find it very different to what they are used to.
This may be a ‘sponsered’ post n’ all…but you all know here (if you’ve been with me long enough) that I either speak the truth or not say anything at all…so meh~
*A very big thank you to Marina Mandarin for their hospitality and exceptional service*

Ok, I can try and be one of the cool kids and say “travellers should not use their phones when abroad and should appreciate their surroundings and be more social”, but the truth is whatever your philosophy is on internet or no internet, I don’t care…Wifi makes my travelling more easier, convenient and fun. Why use a large map when you have google maps? Why bring a phrasebook when you have translation apps? And don’t forget whatsapp! What if you want to contact a local friend?…More importantly, what would you do if you misunderstood the meeting place? Disaster…
When I was invited to Singapore I was so relieved to be provided with Changi Recommends portable wifi travel router (pictured). Having the first day off and totally free to do anything…my instant thought was to contact a uni friend, local instagrammers and explore the city as much as possible during my short stay there.
This was all possible thanks to the super fast connection of the travel router. The battery easily lasts just over 12 hours and can support multiple devices at once. Not to mention, I could immediately update you folks on the beautiful sights and introduce local talents. The registration was hassle free and can easily be rented at the Changi Recommends counter at any three terminals’ arrival halls in Singapore Changi Airport. With as low as $10/day you can enjoy unlimited 4g data access to wifi (website:https://www.changirecommends.com/wifi.aspx) starting from $12/day for non-European markets and $25/day for European
Honestly thanks to the travel router I can really say the experience have enhanced for the better and seriously made a difference. Sorry to offend any anti-wifi travelling gurus.
