Recently I finally bought the Trollbeads People’s Winner from 2015, called Tropical Travels. I wanted it as a way to remember the fabulous frangipani flowers we saw at the Gardens by the Bay in Singapore.
Gardens by the Bay is simply amazing. It has three huge gardens and the coolest part are the Supertrees. We went up them at night and walked along, 22 metres in the sky! We were there during the SG50 celebration weekend and there was a light show and fireworks. To me it looks like something from a novel set in the future!
Of course there’s the Merlion to see at the waterfront.
One day we had lunch at a local chain called Toast Box. They had a curious mix of thick peanut butter bread and Asian dishes. It was very inexpensive but delicious!
The restrooms at the Singapore Zoo were beautiful! This is the ladies’ room.
And check out this Hindu temple.
I could go on and on about the super efficient airport and subway system and the lovely Trollbeads store in the perfect mall that also had a Toys R Us, but now to the bead! Designed by Amanda White of Great Britain, the bead has three sides, showing a frangipani, hibiscus and monstera leaf. You can see her in this video on YouTube talking about what inspired her. She told me she loves to see tropical gardens while on holiday and she saw some frangipani in Spain.
Here’s the bracelet I put together, inspired by the colours in my first photo, above.
Below left to right are Lotus Top, Turquoise Green Dot, Milky Quartz, Gold Silver Trace, Moonlight Dancing, Earth and a unique.
Below left to right after the unique are Peter, Tropical Travels and Gold Silver Trace.
Below left or right after Gold Silver Trace are a White Diamond bead, a unique and another Lotus Top.
Here’s a last look at the bracelet. Tropical Travels can be found on the Trollbeads USA website (affiliate link). Hope you’ve enjoyed this quick look at Singapore and this lovely silver bead. I know when it came out some people bought 3 of them so they could see all three sides on one bracelet! Has anyone ever been to Singapore or is it on the list? Another great thing about Singapore is that you can get cheap flights from there to lots of other countries in the region. I’d sure love to go back!
