I'm sorry for the intermittent posting but lately things have been getting pretty hectic! For instance, my boyfriend just came over on Friday to spend a few days in Singapore (and coincidentally celebrate our third anniversary). Those few days were a whirlwind of activity as I tried to fit in as many sights, sounds, and tastes into his trip without killing the both of us. In the end, we ended up visiting areas like Gardens by the Bay, a BMW World 2014 Expo (you know boys and their cars), Clarke Quay for a seafood dinner and coffee date, Universal Studios, and Sentosa Island. We also visited Orchard Road on his last full day and meandered through that very concentrated area of shopping and eating.
Throughout his entire stay in Singapore, my boyfriend was trying to convince me to visit him in Hong Kong. At first I thought that it would be difficult to plan the trip; however, after we put a little brainpower into the situation, we ended up getting my flight and hotel plans set up! So now I will be leaving tomorrow morning for my 6 am flight to Hong Kong-- I'm so excited to finally visit the city where so many of my Vancouver friends were born.
On a sidenote, make sure that you always triple check your info before booking your trip: I was stupid enough to only put "Deborah Poh" down on my manifest instead of the full "Deborah Ruiying Poh" that is on my passport. As a result, I had to wait what seemed like half a day for the airline to change it for me as I had already checked in online (another note: don't check in online unless you're absolutely sure that everything is correct). In addition to all of that, I had to find a printer at the local library as my aunt doesn't own a printer...
Despite all of the many setbacks, I'm just happy that things are settled now and I have finished packing (since it's only a few days I can pack very lightly)!
In terms of these photos and my outfit, they were taken near the beginning of my Singapore trip when my aunt and other relatives took my family out for a fancy seafood and dim sum lunch at the NSRCC Resort. This was the first and last time that I wore my wedges (I've been wearing flats all day and everyday lately) as I wouldn't need to walk very far. As well, I wore my new straw sunhat and these lovely skorts from Lowrys Farm (a Japanese brand that I fell in love with while shopping on Orchard Road). What do you guys think?
(Also, check out the mosquito bites on my legs that were a result of being bitten an innumerable amount of times in China.)
