It’s been a long while, Singapore. A lot has changed in this city-state!
Here’s a pseudo-timelapse of a famous landmark for starters. It’s not a real timelapse, though… I did come back to this area twice, so plus points still for effort.
Daytime: Day 1, Nighttime: Day 2. Didn’t realize how identical the two shots were until I came back in Manila
Where do I begin? Singapore has dramatically changed in the past few years, with numerous attractions that didn’t exist twelve years ago. I admit to not having a solid itinerary for this trip because of time constraints and a major, major surprise days before the flight.
Maybe that’s the reason I haven’t worked on our itinerary completely. We just plotted some places to visit for the mornings and the afternoons. This is unusual behavior for someone with OC tendencies. Knowing about the strategic locations of the SMRT stations + countless searches on gothere.sg and Google Maps kinda gave me the idea that everything is easily within reach. Thanks to those bits of information (and photographic memory), no second is wasted despite the lack of complete directions and plans on paper.
With the holidays fast approaching, I have been looking around for presents to give my family and friends. Of course there’s a budget in mind, but sometimes, curiosity gets the best of me and I find myself inside stores with expensive product lines haha. I went inside a store that sells musical instruments the other day. A (seemingly) simple keyboard goes for PHP 30,000. I walked out as fast as I could, fearing that the salesperson would detect that I cannot afford it (not that it is an issue, I’m just uncomfortable checking out stuff that I know I can’t afford).
Again, out of curiosity, I looked at music stores online just so I can see more that aren’t available here in the Philippines. Thisexceptional engl amps which is described as “A sound fanatic’s dream come true.” How can you go wrong with that?
Maybe I should stop being too curious because these beautiful things are not right up my alley. Haha.
