Things I Love: Singapore

As I type this, I still have not unpacked. Vacations tend to do that to you: stump you in your movements and be trapped in a seemingly hangover, one which Berocca cannot cure.

I'm pretty stoked to go back to work though. But I don't want to move. Yes, I had fun. Yes, I wore myself out. Yes, I went shopping. Yes, I think it's a sign of another fabulous year to come, this trip.

I have seen a bajillion blog posts about SG trips and being the late SG-bloomer that I am, I wouldn't blog about the things I saw and did --- they weren't very touristy anyway. We basically got lost in the city, injected a couple of semi-tourist things into the mix, discovered the best martini/margarita in town and partied until our legs begged off. It was a very fun chick trip after all.

Oh did I mention I went shopping? =P

Here are some of my photos from a recent holiday at Singapore, the things I loved from it, in no particular order.

Changi Airport. So beautiful and deserving of Conde Nast Traveler's 2010 Best Airport Award!

Airports are my happiest and saddest places. I can't help but quote a BMW ad I've seen on the train: Every decision you've made has led you to this moment. 

What's your favorite moment so far?
