Singapore Diary: Summer 2016

Hello! :) Can you believe it’s November tomorrow? The end of 2016 is approaching..! I was planning a short visit back to Singapore again this winter, but with some things unconfirmed, I don’t know if that’s happening yet. Anyway, we’ve been enjoying some wonderful weather in Hong Kong lately, all sunny and cool, well deserved after going through two typhoons.

For now, I’ll pop over to another sunny city here on City Girl, City Stories as I wanted to share these memories from my trip to Singapore in the summer! These are all casual everyday snapshots I found on my phone and I barely managed to narrow them down from the 200+ I took, what can I say, I really do like to take pictures of everything!

Anyway, I love going through all the places I explored again, so I hope you’ll enjoy this look into Singapore!

My friend introduced me to Grassroots Book Room, a bookstore (selling Chinese and local titles) with a small cafe inside! Such a warm and cosy place. :)

How can I stop by Singapore and not have a kaya toast set? There’s Toast Box in Hong Kong too but they never get it right here, unfortunately.
