De-stressing on the Little Red Dot

I LOVE Singapore, as you know, and so does Mum, so we can’t wait to start our trip off here, getting pampered and relaxed to start our holiday off on the right foot. Stepping out of Changi Airport into the early morning heat (it has been an abnormally humid week for this time of the year),…

Let Me Eat Cake!

A good night’s rest and we awaken to Saturday or – Sentosa Day! Sentosa is home to one of the best day spa’s I’ve ever visited.  Formerly Spa Botanica, it has recently been taken over and renamed So Spa.  The spa is surrounded by tropical foliage and roaming peacocks and one of the best things…

Day of the Peacock

Despite neither of us being big ‘sleeper inners’, both Erin and I managed to sleep in quite well, before deciding to hit the gym.  The gym is situated in the new part of the hotel, and is really, really well equipped with, pretty much everything!  Not to mention that aside from the hotel lobby, this…

Singapore and the Merlions Magical Cocktail Trail – Day Eleven

Its our last day in Singapore today and once again it’s an insanely humid day, but at least it’s not raining – this morning. It feels like we’ve been in Singapore for so long, and I guess that’s because it is the longest stint we have done here. I am ready to go home though,…

Singapore and the Merlions Magical Cocktail Train – Day Ten

We sat by the pool for several hours today enjoying the lovely water and I managed to relax for a while before I finished my book and got bored.  The weather had also started to get really, really humid.  Singapore gets 95% humidity, with temperatures between 22 and 38 degrees celsius, and the humidity has really…

Singapore and the Merlions Magical Cocktail Trail – Day Nine

This morning is our special appointment with Underwater World, where we bought Mum a Swim with the Dolphins for her birthday this year.  There were 6 people attending the program and they were split into two groups, with a trainer and pink dolphin each, and got the opportunity to teach the dolphins all sorts of tricks.  The…

Singapore and the Merlions Magical Cocktail Trail – Day Eight

Our first half of today is spent at Spa Botanica, at Sentosa Resort & Spa. We managed to take advantage of the April promotion, which consisted of a welcome foot massage, followed by a body scrub and massage, along with use of the spa gardens.  The foot massage and scrub felt great, don’t think I’ve…

Singapore and the Merlions Magical Cocktail Trail – Day Seven

I’ve been meaning to visit the Chinatown Heritage Centre for a couple of years now, as I’ve heard that it’s really worthwhile from everyone who’s visited there.  And it was.  Located within three restored shophouses, the centre houses interactive displays and lots of props, photos and displays.  It was definitely worth the wait.  We did a quick…
