Singapore with Mom and Bro!

Approximately last month, my mom, my brother and I went to Singapore, solely to avoid a rumored riot regarding Indonesian presidential election. Elle didn't come with us because she had a job, yeah she's brave (and money lovin) like that. The riot didn't happened, btw, thank God, so we really just flew out for nothing but this short, unplanned yet fun getaway! ;D
Late night Bakkut Teh with family is major LOVE!

So the day we arrived was started with me hopping on to the salon:

Blogged about it here. ^^

And then we strolled around the mall..

Fam selfie! 

Later on that night, we decided we're still hungry, so we went out hunting for BAKKUT TEH!!
This one Founder Bak Kut Teh was heavily recommended, and it opens til late at night (til 02-03 AM, I believe), so off we went! As you can see, the wall of this restaurant is filled with photographs of celebrities who visited this place, including Jay Chow lol. It's that famous!
It was actually quite a struggle, getting there, because we tried using a bus to get there, but we got off the wrong stop so we had to walk about... three blocks (do understand that we Indonesian don't really walk as much as Singaporean, so). When we finally saw the sign, we were like:

Overall, the Bakkut Teh was very good! The combination of the tender meat (which easily slipped off the bone), hot-clear-fragrant peppery soup, chopped chili, stewed soy sauce egg, pork liver, ETC. WAS SO NICE LAH!!! The service was fast. We were seated with another 3 people, but it's okay because the restaurant was really packed (eventhough it was 11 PM!) and it was a pretty big table. I recommend you to also try the Beancurd Skin, twas really good!

Lolled at the BadBoy GoodGirl Snapback my brother wore that night.

The next day! Sun was shining, birds were chirping…
And I decided to eat ice cream!

Next stop was lunch at Shirokiya Chijmes!
Lol, taught mom this 'look down and smile' pose and she looked really cute doing it! Especially with her Japanese teeth (read: messy teeth lol). But what is it that she's holding there?
It's this SUPER DELICIOUS Soymilk Green Tea Ice Cream!! AAAAAAAA this one is really, really, really delicious, beyond expectation like mad!!! Must try!!

Obligatory full body pose with moi pretty mama!

Later on that night:

SUPER BIG AND DELICIOUS Smoked Duck Breast Pizza at Marché OMG!!!!!!!! I had three slices I guess, so delicious!

Next day, we took the train to Marina Bay Sands and on the station, I saw this:
Haha it's a show and I wanna watch it! Hopefully I can!
Inside the mall. So beautiful, isn't it? ^^ If you're going to Singapore, you should visit Marina Bay Sands at least once! My number one reason for visiting this place is actually to take pictures… for my Instagram sponsors lol:

The view and natural lighting was very gorgeous lah, really easy to get good shots like this haha.

LOL AWKWARD SHOT WITH BRO!!! It's because there was this guy who suddenly approached us and offered to take our picture together because he thought we were on our honeymoon LOL WTH hahahaha.

Love you so much, mum!


Last day!
Mom no longer doing the 'look down and smile' pose, instead, she looked down and posed like this lolol still so aegyo!
Itadakimasu! Yep, it's my turn for the 'look down and smile' pose lol. 

Nom nom!

Moving on, we passed by this very cute cafe, and turns out it's the Charlie Brown Cafe! So cute! 
Pretty mom with Snoopy 
Too bad we didn't get to try this place, because we were in a hurry. Next time, then!
But first, let me take a selfie. :b
A smooch because you're so cute, Charlie!

Finally got to this super awesome place that I DEARLY LOVE in Singapore:
   Four Seasons Durians | Takashimaya, 391 Orchard Road, B207-3-2 Food Hall, Singapore 238873. T: 67333009
Lolol Guarantee Shiok indeed!!!
The Durian Ice Cream tastes like an icy cold, super creamy rich Durian that melts in your mouth. MOTHAFREAKIN GOOD.

The Pancake Durian is also a bliss. Must try, must try!!
Seriously, must try!

Ah, Changi at last. T_T
Saw this very cute and girly baby pink female toilet sign!

Okay yes, before we're going back to Jakarta, of course mom had to shop for confections lol she's sweet like that.
