Packing For Maldives

Tomorrow,  Christmas day, we leave for Maldives.

Traveling to Maldives is quite a tedious process since we have to get to Male before 3 pm. Sea planes that will take us to the islands will fly only up to 3:00pm.

It took me more than a week to book our flights. The final route that I got is via Singapore and we stay overnight in Singapore. We leave early morning the following day for Male. Singapore to Male is 4-5 hours.

I started packing last night and continued it today. Our flight tomorrow for Singapore is at 2pm.

Packing for the beach is the easiest for me. All you need to bring are shorts, bathing suits and sun block.

4 bathing suits.

I saw this backpack made of cotton in H&M and it’s so cute. I stored my bathing suits inside this bag but I’ll make it as my beach bag. This is where I’ll put my mobile phone, camera, wallet, small mirror, sunscreen, etc. while roaming around the island.

6 shorts.


Some white tops. When I was choosing what tops to bring I chose all white. I don’t know why but I was drawn to white tops on this trip. Rochelle (Rochelle and Rhea helped me pack) noticed it and said: “mam, bakit puti lahat na dala mo?”


2 denim jeans. White and blue.


2 cover ups and 5 summer dresses.


5 Sleep wear.


And now for my toiletries.

The first thing I packed are the sunblocks, tanning oil and lotion, after sun lotion and gel.

      • Ms.T, I still owe you my private email address and an introductory letter… sorry for the lateness in my response.

        Are still going to San Francisco in February and would you still be open to meet for coffee? Should I just email you using your willow jewelry email address?

        Have a great trip to the Maldives. Take care.

      • Thanks! I’m still enroute to Maldives. We’re in Singapore now. Our flight to Maldives is today. I’ll message you after my Holidays!

  • Hello, Miss T. May i know where you bought your alba products and your rosehip oil? Thanks and enjoy the holidays with your loved ones!

  • Hello!
    I am sorry not to have emailed you my private email and introduction letter.
    Would you still like to meet and have coffee in San Francisco in February?
    Have an awesome time in the Maldives!
