Thumbs Up To Royal Hotel, Singapore...

School holidays have begun since last Friday. My girl and I went to Singapore last Friday... first time both of us went alone by bus at 9.30pm.... we didn't know what to expect... and the journey finally ended in Golden Mile.... it was 5.30am when we reached there. Both of us were like standing there waiting for the time to reach 6am because by then, the taxi fares were cheaper.

But after standing 10 minutes, feeling so tired and sleepy, I beh tahan already, we stopped a cab, it was a new mercedes, lantak la... we just got into it. The uncle taxi told us that our hotel was quite nearby only, not too expensive, less than $10sg. Okay la... not too bad.. at least the cabs there don't cut throat!

Upon reaching the hotel lobby, I prayerfully hope that the receptionist allowed us to check in, it was only 6am then... I told her that my girl and I were very sleepy and tired and ... and.. we really needed the room then. So nice of her, she pitied both of us.. hahaha... and gave us the room key after checking in.

Thumbs Up to Royal Hotel, Singapore!

there were 3 beds initially in the room..
housekeeper came and took back one after we checked in
and in less than 15 min. both of us were in slumberland..

next morning we snapped a bit here and there..
while waiting for Aaron to arrive...

then when he came, he took us to Orchard Road

People here there and everywhere...
Singapore seems to be overpopulated now..

what's this...

a lot to see in Orchard Road ...
spent a few hours there.. window shopping!

next is Vivo City...

our friend here always like to pose...

at the balcony of Vivo..

then to Clark Quay...
walked till our feet surrendered!

Love the night scene here...
phew... it was good to be back in the hotel
after a long long walk!!


  1. Scary looking at those people in Orchard road! But i like the night scene.

  2. awwwww... nice trip! wish i can go too!

  3. nice...I also want to go leh:p glad you had a wonderful time there and Aaron looks happy to see you both. Guess he misses u both much :) but I know for sure I miss you the last few days...helpless !!!

  4. rose: yes, singapore is crowded now..

    irene: if i can, u can..!!

    elin: misses u too.. hahaha.. bone chilling.. he is fine.. getting used to it..

  5. I was in Singapore early this month :) And I also think it's overpopulated but I just love the country. Everything is fast, the escalator, the train, etc.. Very clean too! Now I'm missing the uncle selling bread with ice-cream on Orchard Road...

  6. I love the last two pictures!!! What are those things on the right that look like lit up cranes?? Did you go in the bird park? Those giant red and yellow people are awesome!! Thanks for this beautiful tour of Singapore with you and the kids!!

  7. Royal Hotel? Where is that? Golden Mile is actually Beach Road...but it isn't there. It's along Newton...and it's certainly quite far from Orchard - not walking distance, that's for sure.How much per night?

    I love Singapore...but don't wanna go anymore - too expensive.

  8. Nice review! Next time you visit my blog, please click on the "Honolulu Hotels" link!

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

The Good, The Bad But Not Ugly

MISSING AND NOW BACK IN ACTION...  I checked back my last post and it was 8 March last month and today is 19 April, less than two months only.  So what has been happening in my life?  Lots and lots... good news, bad news, sad news... all concerning health and I guess this is our life cycle as we live day by day.   My health is also not that "fantastic" during the past few months, but mine is a small rock compared to giant boulder which my best buddy is undergoing... I guess some of you know what is happening to her from her blog posts.  I was totally devastated when this happened to her, my tears couldn't help falling and my heart goes out to her.  I am ashamed to say that instead of me giving the comfort that she needs, I am the one that have been receiving her strength in times like this.  She might be crushed physically but she is not broken in her spiritual mind and soul.  One word... "Unbreakable!"  She is a shining example..... "What can death do to m
