My Island Home ♥


Before I bombard this page with instagr.ams, I shall talk a little about my hometown. I've heard endless comments from my relatives, friends and loved ones about Singapore. Some good, some bad. But at the end of the day, it's where I'm from. Can't deny that. And I love it. Singapore is awesome. The local food.. is just delish. Shopping was pretty good, if you know where to go. (Haji Lane & Far East Plaza.) My cousins were the best hosts ever. Butter Factory? Too much fun there. Coffee dates were the best. Especially at my favourite spots. I almost have nothing bad to say about it. (Call me biased, whatever.) It was a huge blessing and a blast catching up with everyone! My apologies to those I didn't get a chance to spend much time with. (More opportunities in the future I'm sure!) Even though Singapore is small.. there's way more to do at night than Vancouver. The nightlife there is top notch. If you don't believe me, I'll take you there personally and show you how we do ;)

But what I loved most about my time there was family time. Family is extremely important to me. It was a ton of fun catching up with them. I mean, I even went Karaoke with my 80 year old grandma. And sang Firework by Katy Perry. Yup, we sure know how to party. I also made quite a few new friends this trip. That was pretty dope. I couldn't have asked for a better time there. Now I'll let the rest of the photos do the talking..

Were you in Singapore only recently? Is that what you inked on your forearm? The font is beautiful to match the meaningful words.

Glad you had so much fun back in your hometown.

Great pics! Looks like you had a ton of fun. I haven't been to S'pore since I was a kid. Would love to go back and visit some friends there soon.

If I moved to Asia, I'd want to live in Singapore too. And there is more to do anywhere in Asia than in Vancouver!

Tessa Tham said...

@Jo Yup I was there from Sept 15th-October 3rd :) Part of my Asia trip! Got that inked in Singapore! And yeah I looooved the font. Definitely had a ton of fun back there. Always somewhere I will call home.

@Gabrielle
You should totally visit Asia :) You'd love it.

@Joanne
Thanks girl!! You should go visit! I went to Brunei after, awesome food there.

@Katy
That's true. Yeah Singapore is pretty awesome haha. It's the only place in Asia I would move to! I reallly miss the nightlife there

This post brings my so many memories of Summer! Was my first time in Singapore and I LOVED it. People are so nice, places are clean, the nightlife is awesome. When I was in Clarke Quay, I did the mini bungee jump and the thing where they launch you up in the sky.

The trip looked sooo fun! If I had know you were from Singapore, I would've asked you for recommendations first! You went to so many places I don't remember visiting. Next time. :)

Just discovered your blog, and I love it! Looks like you had a wonderful trip.

Totally spent the past 20 minutes going through your older posts as well, you take such beautiful photos, I love them!!! Can I ask which Nikon you are using? I've been researching cameras and I can't decide, haha.
