Singapore: The Migup


For the third and final instalment of the Singapore series I wanna tell you guys the reason why I was there and the crazy adventure I had with the hosts of this sponsored trip.  So I was lucky enough to be selected by Migme to visit Singapore an experience their culture and futuristic landmarks.

First up, we visited Gardens By The Bay which is like the Garden of Eden preserved inside a beautiful dome like greenhouse.  Though beautiful, it looks a bit like a bikini bra from above, and ever since someone mentioned that, I can’t help but slightly chuckle secretly lol.  Inside however is any architecture lover’s haven.  It was beautiful, tropical and exotic all at the same time.

Next we visited the Supertree grove which looks exactly like a set from the Avatar movie.  What I loved about this is that it looks like a mixture of elements from urbanisation and Mother Nature; two worlds in one kind of thing.  Going up the Supertree was super fun and the view from above was surreal….almost fantasy like.

Finally we drove to Marina Bay Sands to see the jaw dropping view of Singapore from above followed and concluded by a mouth-watering and intense meaty meal at the Carnivore restaurant on the first floor.  The meat was exquisite, juicy, tender…and it was great to be joined by the host to explain health benefits of each selection. Thanks for the amazing adventure Migme!!!


To conclude and in addition, I want to tell you guys about Migme, a social media platform and also the host of this very travel event.  Migme is a social and entertainment platform providing chat, entertainment and micro-blogging services.   They are particularly popular in South East Asian countries with over nine million users and growing.  With Malaysia and Singapore being two of my top 5 audiences, it made sense for me to make an account and expand my audience through this platform.  Not to mention, earning stickers, virtual cash and meeting new fans is always fun!

You don’t have to necessarily have to have a blog to join.  If you like to meet people and have a little bit of fun online like Facebook, I recommend you to join!  Also, Migme will be hosting a ‘Migup’ (a meet up in different countries just like this one) at least once a month.  You can apply by filling out a very easy and simple online application here!

Enjoy and good luck!

*Again and finally thank you so much to MigmeHQ for this amazing experience and opportunity*

Singapore: Marina Mandarin


Ever since my previous trip to Hong Kong I have become a bit of a sucker for architecture.  So when I was invited to Singapore by MigMe and Changi Recommends I was super excited to hear that I would be staying in the Marina Mandarin.

Aside the fact that the room view was the iconic Marina Bay Sands (what can be better?), I was actually more impressed by their interior design.  It is the type where it is almost impossible to find in Korea sadly.  The marble lounges, restaurants, pools, were all top notch however what I really loved about this hotel was their implementation of exotic plants, fountains and other water elements to their interior design.  They also had real life birds which chirped (cannot be heard in the rooms) across the open space giving the hotel an exotic botanical garden feel to it.

I remember I asked the receptionist about Singaporean transport and they really took their time explaining the bus routes and the subway system.  They were really helpful in making sure I can get most out of the experience in such a short time in Singapore.

Do check out their lunch specials which includes a range of cuisines from around the world.  Oh and do be careful their basket of Babybel cheese in the morning as Westerners will find it very different to what they are used to.

This may be a ‘sponsered’ post n’ all…but you all know here (if you’ve been with me long enough) that I either speak the truth or not say anything at all…so meh~

*A very big thank you to Marina Mandarin for their hospitality and exceptional service*
