Filipino American Expat in Singapore

It’s that time of the year when the lights are up and people start dressing up for things. Two parties this past weekend. Our company “Dinner and Dance” (D&D) and our dragon boat team’s year-end party.

Our D&D’s theme was “A Night of Treasures”. I really wanted to dress up for it… kaso, with my lipat bahay this weekend AND my family visiting me in Singapore next week… I can’t afford to rent a full costume. LOL. Imagine that, I’ll dress up at the D&D.

I wanted to be Jafar from Aladdin or I wanted to be Bianca Del Rio during the Rupaul’s Drag Race Season 7 finale when he crowned Violet Chacki. You know… glimmering silver… head to toe and all over.

Scrap that.

A colleague accompanied me to the Tekka Centre in Little India. It’s a whole floor of more traditional Indian clothing (and don’t get me started I don’t know the particular ones OK… I’m not pretentious lol). It just looked nice and colorful. Some stuff were cheap like $20 and below. Others were in the hundreds. These were the ready-to-wear ones.

Eventually went for a black top for about SGD 30.00. It was a short-sleeve one. Kishan lended me his scarf.

The venue of this year’s D&D was Aryaa. Love the place… but I don’t know how the hell I got home afterwards. Uber I think.

The next party was the FDS Year-Ender. We had it at Boat Quay.

Because I was nursing a hangover from the D&D, I decided it wasn’t in my best interest to go home drunk again. I didn’t drink much. I was mostly just chilling in the corner or taking videos or whatever. 🙂

Oh, and I picked up an award! I’ve never won anything like it with FDS in my two years with the team. I didn’t expect it at all but THANK YOU.

Good times. And better times ahead!

Now the focus shifts to my lipat bahay this weekend. And prepping for my family’s arrival in Singapore. ❤
