Day 1 Singapore: Trip to Singapore

It was my birthday but I did not prepare any food because we’re going to leave and I was preoccupied with chores. I need to finish the laundry para wala na maiiwan because I’m sure I have so many clothes to wash and iron after the trip.

I was busy checking and packing our stuff just to make sure that we will not forget anything. My husband put all the luggage in the car and off we went to the school to fetch our son in school . We went straight to the Park N Fly to park the car, I just brought extra clothes for my son so he will not travel in his school uniform. 

Travel Tax

At the airport, I went straight to travel tax counter so I can pay for our travel tax (Ethan + Me). It is my habit to prepare the exact money so I was holding P2630 and I was surprised when the staff told me that I need to pay P2430. Wow, I’ve just read the news last July 26 that they are planning to to remove or reduce the travel tax, may nagbago agad. There is no more P200 processing fee for RTT (Reduced Travel Tax). #changeiscoming 

Manila to Singapore via PAL 


Cafe France Lasagna. Handa ko! hehehe!
We had early dinner while waiting for our 7:30PM flight. We chose the last flight of Manila to Singapore because it is the cheapest fare and para di absent ng 4 days ang aking anak.

We arrived at Changi Airport passed 11PM. Since we are already in Terminal 1, we did not ride the Sky Train on our way to Immigration. 



We got our luggage and withdrew cash. 



My husband was teasing me that I celebrated my birthday in two countries, oo nga noh, first time. 

Last time we rode train on our way to our hotel but since it was already late, we took taxi. The taxi driver knew Manny Pacquiao and he said he went to Cebu na rin. 

Finally checked-in at Sheraton Towers Singapore, I will review this hotel on my next post.



I brought candle and matches so I can blow candle on my cake or cupcake but I was too tired so tinamad na ko. (Red Ribbon Mamon lang nabili namin sa NAIA) hahaha! Time to sleep.

    1. Ay oo nga, nung nagCebu kami kasama na din terminal fee ng Manila and Cebu. Ibig sabihin depende sa airport kung kasama sa ticket ang terminal fee?
