Singapore : Las Vegas of Asia

Singapore, officially the Republic of Singapore, and also known as the Lion City, the Garden city, and the Red Dot, is a global city in Southeast Asia and the world’s only island city-state. It lies 137 km north of the equator, at the southernmost tip of continental Asia and peninsular Malaysia, with Indonesia’s Riau Islands to the south. Singapore’s territory consists of the diamond-shaped main island and 62 islets. The national anthem is “Maulah Singapura” and the official languages include English, Malay, Mandarin and Tamil. Chinese form the largest part of population here followed by Malay, Indians and others.

Singapore: The Perfect Stopover

CHANGI TO THE CITY

From the Changi International Airport, Singapore’s central where you can see every iconic landmark this sovereign state has to offer is a mere 30-40 minutes depending on where you stop. As for me, I opted to stay at The Pod Boutique Hostel due to its geographical convenience. Considering that I don’t really have much time to go around, I thought it was best to stay in a hostel that has all the comforts of a boutique hotel (sans seclusion of course) but still is in close proximity to what I wanted to see. Not only was the hostel clean, modern, safe, and supplied everything I needed for a quick solo stay, it was near the MRT stations that opened up the entire city in an easy minutes travel. I decided to venture some more that brought me to the Millenia Walk to find something to eat and what Singapore’s nightlife might be like. As luck would have it, I arrived when they were taking the last order but a band was still playing. I took the opportunity to order the Singapore Sling- the gin-based cocktail that originated in this country at the Long Bar in Raffles Hotel. Hey, I am a tourist afterall. I called it a night after I finished my burger and coming back to the hostel was a breeze considering there weren’t a lot of people out and about during week night. Well lit streets and twinkling skyscrapers, the view from the any spot you choose in the city. I closed my eyes and understood why Singapore draws so many people from all over the world.

REACHING KUALA LUMPUR

The best and the easiest way to reach Kuala Lumpur(KL) is via flight. You can chose to land at Changi Airport of Singapore and have a bus ride all the way to KL passing international borders which will take around 6 hours or you can also chose to land at KL airport itself. Another way would be a cruise ride followed by road travel to the city which is a beautiful,breath taking experience.

Sing KTV in Singapore

So you are an expat 6 months into their new life and have started to find this tropical island somehow dry despite its high humidity. If that is the case, why not try some weekend activities of the locals? Here are some suggestions. Sing KTV in Singapore Singapore has a strong KTV culture, especially among the Chinese speakers. For a country with high alcohol price and well, just generally doesn’t drink much, KTV is an ideal alternative for friends gathering or even company events. Most of the Singaporeans are not shy to sing a bit in front of friends. KTV in Singapore is most authentic if you sing it in Chinese, be it Mandarin, Hokkien or Cantonese. Try to jio (Singlish for “invite”) some of your Mandarin speaking friends and ask them to introduce you to Chinese Pop. Want to familiarize yourself with some of the most popular mandarin songs? JJ Lin and Jay Chou have never been missed out from a single of my KTV sessions.

SINGAPORE: HOLLAND VILLAGE – Why you should plan an evening there

A little about Singapore Singapore, the tiny island off Malaysia, known for its planning ways, cleanliness, safety, development and of course the building with the ‘ship’ on top, has been successful in creating tiny towns within the tiny island. Having lived in Singapore for over two years, my impressions of Singapore have changed so many times; don’t think I can count them. Presently, I’d term it as a ‘Love Hate’ Relationship.

Singapore: one city, many cultures

A lot has been written about Singapore, but I think the reason why is definitively worth a visit is represented by its multicultural environment. In a nutshell, visiting Singapore is like taking a look on several cultures and religions, all in one! Not bad for a city-state, right?

Singapore: A Destination For Children Of All Ages

Generally thought of as a big business hub in South-East Asia, or as an ideal stopover between the lands ‘down under’ and Europe, Singapore actually has much to offer in terms of a proper holiday destination.  Families most would benefit from its compact size yet wealth of attractions, which suit all ages and assure that a week spent there is spent well.

Growing up in Singapore, I was always reminded in school, at home and even in the TV that Singapore is just a little red dot in the world map. It is one of the smallest country in the world (50 km from east to west and 17 km from north to south), however Singapore has come a long way and has reinvented itself in many ways.

Occupying 719.1 square kilometres, Singapore is not an enormous country. (As a comparison, Australia is 7.692 million square kilometres.) However there is a lot squeezed into it: more than 5 million people, business hubs, a thriving arts scene, every imaginable type of food, a busy nightlife and continual construction. But because of this things can get a bit hectic. Residents can escape the big city through the well-connected airport, hopping on a plane and a short while later finding themselves relaxing on a beach in Bali.

Living in Singapore for a month

Last year, I was able to go to Singapore when I was one of the loan staff for our company’s international affiliate in SG. I, together with 10 other Filipino auditors stayed there for a month. Staying in the country for work is very much different than staying there for the sole purpose of travelling. And due to our busy demanding schedule, I had a limited time visiting the country. But of course, I couldn’t resist exploring what SG has to offer especially for first timers like me! And so let’s start with…

I lived and worked in Singapore as an audiologist for a year and five months. Although I traveled heaps for work, I made it a point to allocate time and explore Singapore like a local, a tourist and as an expat. Foremost, you need to obtain your Traveler’s Starter Pack and Guidelines: EZ Link Card. This will get you to places. Smartphone. Most of the city’s establishments are equipped with a good wi-fi, if you’re the type of person who lets you friends or your stalkers know your whereabouts this is simply a part of the essentials. gothere.sg. If ever you find yourself lost in city a trusty online app allows you to navigate the places better by train, by bus, by a cab or even by foot. Singapore Dollars or simply money. Singapore has always been on the list of most expensive cities, define your travel with a little bit of spending though using the PLASTIC (credit card) is accepted anywhere. Try sparing a dollar on the famous one dollar ice cream on the streets, enjoying it with a bread is mostly recommended. Now, go on and head off to the nearest stall and have yourself a treat. Sunblock. Let me remind you that the sun here does not lurk or ambush you in a surprise. It presents itself 26 to 30 degrees Celsius letting you know you’re in the tropics, suit yourself with a good sunblock and thank me after! Stay on the LEFT side of the escalator. The right side is meant for people who are rushing to pass. Everyone gets to be family, call the elderly “Aunty” and “Uncle”. In a modern scenario, don’t be surprised when you see them working. There are some things you need to do in order survive in an expensive city, sad but true. Converse as tourist for directions you’ll be surprised to be answered back in English or “Singlish”. Initially before trying to live here, I’ve get to have a taste of what is to be like a tourist that was back in 2012. Everything about the country seemed to be perfect the city life, shopping, public transportation, amusement parks and museums, did I mention shopping already? It was cleanest city I’ve ever been to, something similar on how you want your city to be arranged in one of your social media games. Being a tourist, me and my friends decided to stay at Marina Bay Sands Hotel for a week. It did cost a bit of a fortune even if it was bundled with a few discounts coming from someone we knew, that’s only when it came to our senses that we are living the high life on a 6 star hotel. Chauffeured from the airport by a glamourous hotel coach, I felt like a Hollywood celebrity that time. The room was amazing, of course and top it all you’ll get to have an infinity pool on the 57th floor, you embracing all of Singapore’s skyline. Be aware that you cannot lift drinks or food from the bar if you don’t intend to consume them, as there is a sensor that would tell the staff that a product is sold once it has been lifted from the bar. Since I was attending a conference while on this trip (I just need constantly remind myself this), I chose the must-see places I should visit to make my trip complete and worth it, and proudly say that “Oh! I have experienced Singapore at its finest!”.
