The Little One at Candylicious and Hershey's Store, Singapore

A great way of ending (or starting) your Universal Studios Singapore adventure is by getting your fill of candies and chocolates at two of the well-known sweets shops located here in Resort World Sentosa -- candylicious and Hersey's Singapore store (Hey!  You've experience the thrill and the adrenaline rush from the rides.  Now's the chance to gorge yourself with energy from the saccharine-induced kind.)

Uhmmm.. dada... Who's the big red dude beside me?

candylicious

candylicous is a concept sweets store that aims to elevate the simple, everyday candy shop into a world-class destination.  It fuses the joy of sweets and active imagination by use of wonderful smells and bright, colorful designs; all meant to bring out the kid in all of us.

candylicious operates a branch located just in front of Universal Studios Singapore.  Housing over 5,000 types of candies and chocolates, it is considered Asia's largest candy store to date.  And with a large "Pick and Mix" wall, there's surely a type of candy that will suit all individual tastes.

I can go on and on about this store.  But, in my opinion, pictures speak so much louder than words when posting about a topic as delicious as this.  So I'll shut up now (for the time being, anyway) and let the photos speak for themselves.

There are also sweets catered to adults only.

There's also an Il Gelato di Bruno branch inside.

Admittedly, out of all the candies in the store, what really got me so excited was this...

A rainbow of colors

I know it's so unusual to get so hyped up by something as ordinary as this but you see, I love m&m's, colorful items, and orderliness.  And although I adore color mixes, my OCD senses also rejoices when colors are matched and placed in a neat pile.  Yes, I am obsessively compulsive that way. 

When purchasing from candy dispensers here at candylicious, you buy a separate container from them first then fill it up with sweets.  Bill is computed based on the total weight.

Aside from sweet food and drinks, candylicious also offers select merchandise as well.

This is the craziest thing I've seen inside the store -- a Bling jeweled lollipop holder.  It is used exactly as the name implies.

Wonder if there's really a demand for such a ridiculous thing? 

Hershey's Singapore Store

And if your candylicious haul still isn't enough, then head on down to the Hershey's Singapore store.

Hershey's Singapore

As the name implies, you get, what else?  An overload of chocolates and candies made by Hershey's!

Reese's and Kisses and Twix, oh my!

With over 200 of their products on display, I'm sure you'll leave never wanting for more. 

Aside from their usual sweet offerings, the store also sells some pretty cool merchandise and memorabilia.

Fancy brining home 1 or 2 of these?

You Scream... I Scream... We all Scream for... uhmmm... Chocolate!

I don't know about you but I swear I gained pounds just by looking and whiffing the air in these stores!  So before I end this sinful post of mine, I have just but one message to leave...

My thoughts exactly!

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
