28 Jun En Route: Singapore 2016 Photo Diary
June 27, Monday, 6:14PM | Starbucks Coffee, Changi Airport Terminal 2
If you’ve known me (virtually) for a long time now, you’d know that I love Singapore very, very much. The art, food, efficient transportation – I fell in love with it the first time I visited and spent a week exploring on my own, two years ago.
I always wished I would get to live in SG or maybe settle there for a good few months (for experience), but it looks like that’s never happening anytime soon. And as I grew older I may have realized that I’d rather stay in Manila and call the PH my home. 🙂 So for the meantime, here’s a visual diary of my recent “work” trip – squeezing in three classes in a weekend plus a few sidetrips here and there at some old favorites and new discoveries. Enjoy!
First stop: Basheer Graphic Books, Bras Basah Complex. The damage? New copies of B & Flow magazine. No regrets.
Also: discovered Cat Socrates in the same building. So much artsy finds!
Carinderia hits in SG. Chin Chin was geeeewd.
Revisited National Gallery for a quick art fix. The museum shop is very promising – with complete lineups of books, stationery, and merch.
This girl was reading her Penguin Classic book before the museum opened.
Something my future child would definitely wear. Not that I’m thinking of motherhood already. Bring that up to me in 10 years. HAHA.
It just so happened that this exhibition explaining the Gallery & Co branding can pass up as Tippy‘s room. Hmm.
First time to visit Holland Village. We found a lot of nice stores and cafes. Funny that it’s located inside a real neighborhood – with houses, and nice letterboxes such as that one on the photo.
Hello from me and Tin!
Craft Assembly‘s selection of Singapore-inspired souvenirs. I swear, those pillowcases are haunting me. Easily one of my favorite stores in Haji Lane.

Our hotel faces the National Library. I wasn’t able to go in but it was a beaut on the outside!
Workshop snippets. The Letter J Supply studio was beautiful – look at all that light!
It’s Mikka Weeeeeee!
Library @ Orchard. I was glued to my seat for a good thirty minutes browsing every type book in the typography section.
Airport sightings: a sunflower garden. Changi is really something.
Peace out, Singapore. It’s been real. You’ll always be a favorite. I can’t wait to be back soon!
PS: Thanks to everyone who attended the workshops. I’ll share about it soon. For PH classes, sign up here.
PPS: Whipping up a comprehensive list of places to go for art, books, crafts and coffee! Coming soon 🙂
