Singapore Day 3 (Mama's Birthday)

For my Mom's birthday, we went out shopping. 

The problem was, it was Chinese New Year so almost all of the shops were closed.

But we took our chance and went to Bugis Junction. Thank God may mga bukas na shop dun nung time na yun.

Matapos mamili ng mga pasalubong sa Bugis Junction, we took a cab and asked the driver to take us to Orchard Road.

Nung tinanong ng driver kung saan sa Orchard Road kami pupunta, sabi namin ni Mama, kahit saan basta may bukas na mall. O diba?

We ended up in ION Orchard which is a really nice mall but they sell high-end stuff.

Dahil nandun narin lang naman kami, pumunta kami ni Mama sa Burberry. She found this bag she wanted so she bought it.

I said, it should not come as a surprise why I call her crazy.

She said it was her birthday so she deserves the bag.

I concurred.

When we got back to the hotel, someone delivered a cake and said it was compliments of the hotel because it was my mom's birthday. Sosyal. Love the hotel talaga.

That evening, my mom went out with some of her friends who were in Singapore.

I stayed in and watched TV. Since I've been going out every night since we got there, an evening in sounded like a good idea.

Happy Birthday Mama :)

Happy Birthday Mama

On the 23rd of January, I was at Singapore with my Mom.

Even though it was Chinese New Year, we went around the city and did some light shopping.

On the 23rd of January, it was my Mom's birthday.

I would like to take this chance to greet my Mom a big Happy Birthday!

For those of you who don't know, it was my mom who raised me. She did it all by herself.

My mom is the best mom in the world because she sacrificed a lot to give me the life I've become accustomed to.

She provides not only the material things I want but she gives me the emotional support I need.

When I came out, I wasn't afraid of what my friends would say or what my own father would say. The only thing I was worried about was what my mom would say and think.

I admit that I have not been a good son in the past and I have done a lot of things that really hurt her so now I'm trying hard to be the best in what I do so that I could make it up to her. So she could be proud of me.

I was afraid of giving her more heartache that's why I was terrified of telling her the truth and when I did, she hugged me and told me she already knew and that she was relieved because she knew I no longer had to keep that secret to myself.

That moment, getting my mothers acceptance, was the best moment of my life.

My mom once told me that she can and will give me everything I want, the only thing she could not give me is a complete family.

Well Mama, I don't need a complete family to be happy because as long as I have you, that's all the family I need to make myself complete.

I wish you good health and more blessings because I know that you are a terrific person not only to me but to everyone else around you.

Happy Birthday Ma.

I love you :)

Singapore Day 2 (Universal Studios)

On our second day, my mom and I went to Universal Studios Singapore.

It was a fun day.

O diba? Bonding kami ng bongga ni mader sa SG.

Compared to Disneyland HK, mas na-enjoy namin ang Universal Studios. Sa Disneyland kasi mapapagod ka kakalakad, but with Universal Studios, sakto lang.

Naloka kaming dalawa ni Mama sa Transformers. Isang oras kaming pumila tapos 5 minutes lang yung show. In fairness it was worth it naman. Sulit ang isang oras na paghihintay namin.

We could have gotten the express ticket para hindi na kami pumila pero it was kinda expensive kasi peak day yun kaya wag nalang saka keri lang naman yung pila.

I really had a lot of fun kasi minsan minsan lang kami magbonding ni Mama pero pag bonding eh bonding talaga.

There's nothing better than quality time between a mother and her child.

Singapore at Night

Dahil adventurous ako masyado, naisipan kong maglibot-libot sa Singapore ng gabi.

Take note, mag-isa lang ako ah.

Singapore already looks amazing during the day but it looks twice as good at night.

Here are some of the pictures around the Marina Bay Area.

Kahit hatinggabi na or kahit madaling araw, ang dami paring tao na naglalakad lakad sa kalsada. 


O diba? Gabing gabi eh naglalakwatsa ako sa SG kaya pag umaga at may tour kami eh bumoborlogs ako.
