Weekend Getaway - to Singapore!

A few weeks ago we spent the weekend in Singapore. No, no, we aren't the-super-rich-globetrotting-whisking-ourselves-away-to-exotic-locations-on-a-whim kinds. We were transiting via Singapore on our way back from another trip and decided to stay the night instead of trying to while away time in the confines of an airport. Ok, I'm not really helping my cause here, am I? What this other trip was, I'll have to tell you another time - probably could start writing a whole, entire, separate blog about that trip. Anyway, back to the weekend in Singapore...

We stayed the night at the Pan Pacific Hotel (the one near Marina Bay). Great hotel, great location, great value (room rate-wise), food was overpriced and not so great.
Cute little tipi-hut-like booths in the lobby bar. Had a mean Cosmo there later that night.

Breakfast for the Hungry-hippos!
Shopping I did earlier that morning

First order of business as I landed in Singapore at 8am that morning was to head straight to the Charles & Keith store at T3 of Changi airport and buy this amazing wallet! It's true, I don't like wasting time when it comes to shopping. Get right into it, I say, whatever the time of day. I love that it has that bangle/wristlet attached to take the wallet from day to night. Best part - the price of course, only $42 SGD ($36 AUD approximately)!

More on Singapore to come shortly. Stay tuned.


  1. the decor is so modern and chic! loving the pink and white colors in the lobby...looks like a place "carrie bradshaw" would hang out..so glad you got a good rate on this 5 star hotel!

  2. The colours & decorations in the lobby were in celebration of Chinese New Year. I can't tell you how flattered I am that you think Carrie Bradshaw would approve of my choice of hangouts! ;)
