On my last blog post, The Happy List, I mentioned that I got back on shopping!! Singapore holds the best and craziest sales, that is why shopping is a must. Also, I am taking advantage of the fact that H&M stores are all over the place. Speaking of H&M, I heard that they’re finally in Manila next month!! I. Cannot. Wait.
Anyways, this is one of my favourite hauls from the other 3 I had for the past few months. As of now, I am into neutral colours and laid-back fashion. I decided to keep it more simple, yay!!
Here are my Singapore Finds:
1. Chiffon Dress, Trendy
My favourite pick from my haul!! I cannot wait to wear this classy and chic dress in parties or formal dinners.
2. White Sneaks, H&M
This may be really weird, but I love H&M’s shoe collection more than the clothes they offer. I bought black sneaks from our last trip in Singapore last December, and I got 2 shoes from the store the other day!! When I saw these white sneaks for just 5 freakin dollars… I. Need. To. Get. This, though I have to be less clumsy because white sneaks!!
3. Pearl Earrings, Forever 21
As you can see, there are only 2 items from Forever 21 in this haul no. 4. Well, I only got the chance to roam around the store for only 15-20 minutes since my father and I were running late for a movie. I guess I will still have a 2nd part of my Singapore Finds because I’ll go back to Orchard this weekend, yay!
4. Cropped top, Cotton On
I am not a big fan of cropped tops, but when I checked Cotton On the other day and saw this… ahhh, exception!! I love the print plus it fits me well.
5. Nude Sandals, Forever 21
Needing (yep, it’s a need) sandals when I got here since the flats that I packed for my trip got broken. Well, I’m okay with it because that flats were bought ages ago. I have been overusing these sandals since I bought it. It’s really comfy, and as I said, I am getting more in love with anything nude and pink.
6. Skull-printed Scarf, Cotton On
I have been wanting to buy a scarf since then; however. I’m afraid that I can’t pull it off. I’m still thinking of a good outfit to pair with this one, but I guess it will be easy since it’s white. I actually bought this one just because this scarf is only for 5 dollars with any other purchase. Why not, right?
7. Black Dress
I don’t know where my tita bought this black dress, but I loved it! Can’t wear it yet since the upper part of the dress is see-through. I didn’t bring any tube with me, so I’ll probably wear it when I get back in Manila.
8. Pink Pumps, H&M
The last heels I bought were for my prom last 2012… yup, ages ago!! My mom and I have the same shoe sizes, so I do not have to buy heels since she has tons. As I said, my heart has a small spot for H&M shoes, so I didn’t think twice of buying these, plus it’s the last pair!! How lucky, right?
9. Leopard Dress, Cotton On
I am not much of a fan of leopard prints, but this dress is da bomb!! This is one of the clothes, like the Black Dress, my tita left for me before she and my grandmother leave for their Eurotrip. This is also the same dress I wore during my adventure in Haji Lane.
Pretty sure that there will still be a second part of my Singapore Finds next week. Hope you guys loved my 4th haul as much as I do! :)

It has been a month since the last post of ‘The Happy List’ in my blog. For that whole month, I can’t seem to make one since a lot of things happened without me wanting it to, but I am ditching the drama. I have learned a lot from some helpful advices from friends and helped myself to stand back up again. Everyday, I try to find things that keep me smiling, no matter how small they are. I hope you guys do, too! *hugs*
1. The awesome slide at Changi Airport
2. Being (somehow) independent
3. Having the best support group, AJPM
4. Traveling alone
5. Finally accepting that fact that I cannot please everyone and that I have a 90-10 say to hate messages
6. Shopping (ahh, after so many months)
7. Movie nights with father dear
8. Double-decker bus rides
9. Answering back e-mails
11. Singapore being nothing but photogenic
12. Getting travel tips from co-bloggers
Travel Diaries: Haji Lane
I have been to Singapore for a few times already, but I never had the chance to deepen my knowledge on its culture, art, vintage shops and the like. That is why going to Haji Lane, Duxton Hill and Singapore’s National Museum are the must for this trip. Surprisingly, I already had the first tick on my checklist!
Haji Lane is full of street art, vintage shops and fashion boutiques. The vintage shops were so amazing and fab; however, most of the shops do not allow photography inside, but of course, ninja moves. It is only a 5-minute walk from the Bugis train station. It is an easy-find since the other streets just look the same, but Haji Lane is an exception of beauty and colours! What make me love the place even more is that only a few people come and visit it. I do not do much of asking others to take pictures of myself, but the painting is just surreal… I needed to.
Walked for half an hour finding I Am Cafe, but little did I know that the shop is closed every 3rd Monday of the month. Drooling for the rainbow cake, huhu, ragrats. Maybe next time, if I still have enough time and cash, I’ll go back there for that rainbow cake.
I’m hoping that my two other plans will be pushed through for the next coming days. Have a great week, guys! :)
Maybe we got lost in translation, maybe I asked for too much,
When I loved you, you became my reason for every single question I had since a kid, but then you left, and all of my certainties in life became uncertain. The water became the wind. The broken heart was not a metaphor. The tears became endless. Words and comfort cannot suffice. The world was never again as beautiful as it was in my eyes.
However, this is I letting go of the words and pain that have crushed me since the day you left. This is I not saying that I already found a way to let you go and finally move on; however, I am persuaded by my heart and soul to continue on finding happiness and contentment because I know I can. I am not saying goodbye, not yet, because I merely can’t. I am not denying the fact that I am, still, ardently and profoundly in love with you, but I am surely letting go of what keeps me crying at night. Yes, I’ll never be the same again, but that doesn’t mean that I cannot be a better version of who I was in the past.
One day, I will view ‘broken hearts’ as a metaphor used to make poems more life-like. The tears can come and go. A hug can be an answer. The world will be more beautiful than ever. And the water? It will still turn into a wind because sometimes, no matter how we want it so bad, things will never go back to the way it was.
