You know it's a casual day when all you have to think about is what to eat. My sister found this restaurant called Food for Thought on Yelp, and the food looked so delicious we just had to try it. When we got there we realized that the restaurant not only makes amazing breakfast, but they also put in countless hours and funds into making the community and surrounding neighborhood a better place. I am so glad we got to try this place out. It feels great to know that I can eat good food and contribute to a good cause. It's a win win situation! After breakfast we walked to China town where we got to see a temple as well as make a wish using wishing ribbons. Here are a few pictures from breakfast and my walk around the city.

Hey hey!! How is everybody doing? I hope you are all doing well and even better now because I have a new outfit post! This is what I wore for a day of shopping while in Singapore with my sister. I absolutely loved my time here. Everyone we met was super friendly and always willing to help us out. For example, I dropped my Iphone on in the mall and didn't realize it was gone until I was on the other side of the mall. We spent 30 minutes tracing our steps and asking all the stores we had been into if they found it. We had no luck and I told myself that I was just going to have to deal with not having a phone for the next couple weeks, but my sister wasn't giving up. She asked every information desk if someone turned in a phone and luckily some sweet angel had picked it up and turned it into the lost & found. I never met this person but I wish I did so I could say thank you a million times. It's random acts of kindness like this that will forever keep my faith in humanity. Anyways, I'm still in Sydney now and tomorrow we leave for Cairns. Hopefully the wifi is better so I can go back to my regular blogging routine and Instagram posts, but I will talk to you all again very soon!

I can't believe I haven't posted anything from my trip to Singapore yet. We arrived in Australia a few days ago, but it was a complete struggle trying to get my laptop to connect to the internet. Wifi in the hotel rooms is super expensive, but we managed to connect for free in the lobby by using a restaurant's network next door . The only problem is sometimes it doesn't connect to my laptop which is what was happening yesterday when I tried to put up this post. It's cooperating now and I'm so happy to be back blogging. On this day we visited the Gardens by the Bay park. This place was unlike anything I have seen before. The garden was beautiful during the day, but at night it was absolutely breathtaking.

It's almost midnight here in Bali and my birthday is coming to an end, but it has been one of the best days of my life. From the early morning birthday surprises to having my first experience at a spa, this is one birthday I'll never forget. A big thank you to my sister who planned everything perfectly and managed to keep it all a secret. No worries, more pictures from my day will be up soon, but for now we'll start with this outfit.

Happy Independence Day from Malaysia! I hope your day is filled with lots of love and BBQ. I am so jet-lagged right now I could fall asleep any second. We got into Singapore this morning at midnight and I told myself I was going to the hotel and straight to bed. In a perfect world I would've gone to sleep around 1:30 and gotten up at a decent hour. Of course that isn't even close to what happened. The car that was supposed to take us to our hotel ended up breaking down, and we had to wait at the airport for an extra 2 hours until everything was sorted out. We tried to take a taxi, but our hotel was in Malaysia and the taxis didn't travel across the border. We were doomed. I was prepared to sleep on the floor at the airport, but we didn't have to worry about that. The company finally sent out a new car and we were on our way.

hey hey! The time is 4:15 a.m. and I'm still up. I leave for the airport in a few hours and of course I just finished packing. So typical of me, but I managed to keep my bag at exactly 42 pounds! Packing for a month-long trip was one of the hardest things I've had to do, but I'm finally ready to go. We have a 13 hour flight to Tokyo, a 6 hour layover, and then a 6 hour flight to Singapore. So basically I'll have all the time in the world to sleep and watch movies. I don't know when I'll have internet again, but as soon as I get a connection another post will be coming your way. I'm off to get ready now, but I hope you have a fabulous Wednesday!
