^no need to worry. if they ask for additional identification, just present a driver's license, SSS, whatever ID. though hindi naman kami hiningan ng additional identification nun. passport lang. tsaka as long as may itinerary ka and hotel reservation, keri na yun. believe me. yan lang naman ang ginagawa namin when we travel abroad. like last time when we went to SG, tinanong ako kung saan kami mag-stay, tapos sinabi ko yung hotel name. and i was ready for the mismong reservation confirmation, pero di naman hiningi.

in summary, you don't have to worry kung wala ka namang ginagawang masama, useless worry, magkaka-wrinkles ka lang. :) basta ensure you have a hotel booking confirmation and an itinerary.

nanonood ako ng Border Security sa Crime Investigation channel, yung mga hino-hold lang naman ng Immigration eh yung mga kaduda-duda, meron dun sabi niya tourist siya pero ni wala siyang masabing tutuluyan or gagawin sa Australia. eh syempre kung magbabakasyon ka dapat ni-research mo yung mga gusto mong puntahan di ba? kaya i'm advising na dapat may itinerary ka.

^^ in addition sa sinabi ni sis meimei, dala ka din printout ng return flight e-ticket mo. Basta, relax ka lang and if nagtanong, just answer straight and truthfully. If nag-ask sino gagastos since walang work, tell the IO na gift ng dad mo yung trip. :)

re: church

Meron malapit sa may Clemenceau Ave., Sacred Heart Church, if I remember correctly. Ito yata church pinakalapit sa Orchard. Diyan kami nagsisimba before nung SG pa nakatira si hubby. Short bus ride (bus 123) lang from Orchard.

^^ Pag churches na sa Orchard,

Church of St. Bernadette
12 Zion Road, Singapore 247731 (Just take the free Great world shuttle sa may lucky plaza bus stop.  And if going back to orchard, you can take bus 16 or take again the shuttle from GW).

http://www.stbernadette.org.sg/

If malapit sa bugis,

Cathedral of Good Shepard
A Queen Street, Singapore 188533

Walking distance from Bencoleen st.  Just check the mass schedule kasi nung napadaan ako, korean mass sha. 

http://www.catholic.org.sg/parish_detail.php?OrganisationID=1 

Both churches have Filipino mass just see the schedule on the websites.

Hello! We'll be going to SG on Jan 27-30. Patulong naman po kung feasible itong itinerary na nabuo namin after backreading.

Day 1
- Arrival - 9:50
- Lunch
- Check in at Marrison (Bugis)
- Singapore zoo - 12:00 - 5:00 pm (we plan to take the cab going to the zoo but if di namin makakaya umalis ng 12 going to the zoo mag city tour na lang kami :
        1) Raffles MRT                    
        2) Fullerton Hotel/Merlion               
        3) Singapore Flyer               
        4) Helix Bridge               
        5) Marina Bay Sands Skypark               
        6) Gardens by the bay               
      (okay ba yung pagkakasunod-sunod nila?)

Day 2
- Brunch in Vivo City 9 am - 10 am (open na kaya sila?)
- USS - 10 am- 3:30 pm
- Sentosa - 3:30 - 8:00 pm
- Bugis-Dinner (ano po hawker center malapit dito? )

Day 3
- Legoland 8:00 - 5:00
- Dinner - Makasuntra Gluttons by bay (Pano po punta dito from Singapore Flyer - dito kasi yung bus from Legoland?)

Day 4:
- Chinatown
- Check out at 12:00
- Departure 5:30 pm


If matuloy yung Zoo namin, feasible kaya na hatiin yung sched ng city tour sa evening sched?

Thank you po!

there's an estimate fare sa gothere.sg you can check it there. kung 5am flight ninyo kaya naman i think if mag clarke quay kayo if feel ninyo gumimik then go to the airport let's say ng 1-2am to check in then pahinga/stroll around sa airport.
Stalker much?

@MIGSmom
DAY 1 malaki ang Sg zoo hindi kaya ng half day. kami 10am-5pm kami dun. Unless mala amazing race ang gagawin niyong pagikot.  yung sa city  tour hindi ko na maalala.  Their zoo is very nice worth it na puntahan and gastusan.

DAY 2 USS 10am to mga 6pm din dito dahil blockbuster ang pila sa mga rides
          Sentosa - honestly feeling nagsayang lang kami ng money dito but sabi nila maganda daw sa gabi.
          Bugis - kapag may kasama kayong bata hindi na ito kakayanin.  Sorry I can't give any hawkers center dahil ayaw ng hubby and kiddos ko kumain sa mga ganyan. arte!  >:(

DAY 3 legoland- never been here kaya no comment


DAY 4 chinatown - check out  ok na ito
