Currently In Singapore

I went to Singapore with my family when I was really small so there isn't much I remember, but I don't know if that really matters because I do know Singapore is SO different than what it was back then! Shah and I decided to try the 6-hour ride on the "luxury" bus to travel here …

Honestly, people probably thought I was crazy, cruising around in the hot, hot Venice summer in my long-sleeved black top underneath this floral-embroidered black mesh dress. There I was, in the midst of shorts, mini-dresses, and flip flops — and in a pair of boots.
