A day to myself at Sentosa

I’m on a week-long staycation in Singapore so I came up with a list of things I wanted to accomplish. I don’t always get a ten-day break to do these things so I’m making the most of it.

  • Do spring cleaning. –I threw out a whole plastic bag of receipts!
  • Breaking Bad marathon. –I manage about six episodes per day.
  • Game of Thrones marathon. –Gave up in Season 2.
  • Read a few chapters from a book. –Dusted off “Twilight in Djakarta”.
  • Create a 6-month budget plan. –A new excel file.
  • Go jogging at Ang Mo Kio – Bishan Park. –Enjoyed the view again.
  • Learn how to cook two dishes. –I made (1) lumpia; and (2) pasta with broccoli in pesto.
  • Visit the beach. Because no vacation is complete without some sun, sand and booze.

N has work on weekdays and I have always wanted to just spend time by myself. I felt like having a picnic by myself at Siloso Beach in Sentosa.

3:17 PM – Pack bag with a notebook, a book, an extra t-shirt, my D3200 and some tissues.


The weather was pretty hot and sunny. Perfect for a late afternoon at the beach! I took this photo from the kitchen window. This is the kind of HDB that we live at in central Singapore.
