Singapore Rock ‘n Roll

No comments

I surprised Sean with top tickets to watch Guns & Roses live in Singapore last February 2017 because I remember so well while having a random date over beer, he kept mentioning about the band having a concert in Singapore, and said that he was a really huge fan. I’ll have to admit. I do love ’em, and know that they’re rock legends (I know about 4 songs so maybe that isn’t bad at all, hahaha!), though I wasn’t really a legit G&R babe.

Being the fiancé that I was, I checked my phone and looked it up online until I actually booked us concert tickets and round trip flights to Singapore right then and there, while we were having drinks with a friend. It’s not all the time that I get to spend for my husband, right?

Okay, fine. I enjoy spoiling my kids and husband JUST A LITTLE.

Before our trip, I had the worst sore throat and didn’t get to sing a tune, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying our stay, and lip syncing to SWEET CHILD OF MINE.
Fast forward to a few months, we experienced one of the best trips in Asia! Aside from the concert, we also met up with our Filipino friends and went to some spots that we haven’t been to yet since we’re always in Singapore either for work or quick weekend getaways.

Here’s some snaps of what we did and where we went to last month in Singapore!

One of the most convenient (and newest!) hotels in the area, JW Marriott South Beach, Singapore! They officially opened last December 2016 and their service is off the hook.

What a sweet gesture from the GM. The strawberries were huge and the chocolate under it (well aside from the cute chocolate bear) was so gooooood. It wasn’t like those overly sweet desserts – it was a perfect welcome gesture, indeed.

Going around town, not knowing where to go is how I like it sometimes. We got to meet a lot of Filipino vendors here as well and had a really good first night.

I would die to get their street Nescafe (coffee) Shakes and Milo Dinosaurs in Singapore. So basic yet so good – and cheap! I’m craving for it as I type. Of all drinks. Haha!

Karel: Blogger shot please! Hahaha! We were shopping for gadgets at Lucky Plaza here.

Met friends over dinner at JUMBO.

We went to Holland Village as well, a nice place to have some drinks with friends if you want go somewhere else, aside from the good ‘ol popular Clark Quay.

This dish? WORTH IT. Don’t forget to order this particular dish at Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle in Singapore.

 

Get the Soya Chicken & Noodle!

We love the cocktail hour at JW Marriott South Beach. Unlimited drinks (like champagne and wine) with delicious afternoon delights.

I must remember that hole in the wall place where I ordered this Beef Truffle Rice Bowl. I’m definitely making this again at home! YUM.

I can be a hard rocker. CHAR. Let me admit something. The fans didn’t like the Singapore gig of G&R but they loved G&R’s performance! Even us Pen A ticket holders had wristbands that you could top up for food and drinks and we didn’t get to spend it all or get our refund because of the organizer’s shortcomings. Regardless, we just left right after the concert and had a really good midnight snack, para makabawi (to make up for it.).

Gardens By The Bay first timers. Honestly, I wouldn’t come back for it but seeing it finally  made me happy. I enjoyed the vibrant picture-worthy spots.

Day off! Ready for some flowers… Haha!

Thank you, SG. Over and out.

What’s the next concert to catch? Coldplay in Manila in less than two days!!!

AAAAAAAAAHK!

I’m so lucky to be the first to grab ’em tickets and this concert is part of my bucket list. I can’t wait to get lost in their music on April 4 – at our homeland. For now, enjoy the rest of your week.

Love,

Karel
