Realize that all the food and wandering posts on my blog can be overwhelming for tourists. Have been meaning to do a must see list of sorts for some time, and then I got too overwhelmed myself. Finally got the … Continue reading
The exhibit that captivated us the most turned out to be the elephants. The elephant that sparkled.
Chinatown is so lively, and you should head there to check it out at least once. Saw dragons everywhere. On angpow packets, in cutesy soft toy form and made with paper as decoration to welcome the New Year. The year … Continue reading
You must check out the open air market at the Harbour. I just loved the seagulls that glided in the hair squawking. They hovered, ready to swoop up some scraps. It’s a wonderful area for photos with the Uspenski Russian … Continue reading
Another of my favourite places in Stockholm was Gamla Stan which means Old Town. It was just a subway ride away from our hotel so it was the very first area we explored and also said to be a must … Continue reading
This times we parked at the side nearer the main entrance. It was a pity that there was construction and cleaning going on when we were there and a lot of the path was blocked. We then made a promise … Continue reading
We always drive by this gorgeous red building, but I have never been inside. Been yearning to for quite some time and we finally did it. The building itself at 28 Maxwell Road is called Red Dot Traffic while the … Continue reading
Tourist areas are often scorned in most countries, but we should give them a chance as there is a reasons why they are the must see attractions in a country. It’s usually a place that most locals avoid, but when … Continue reading
There’s always something to see at Little India. I would definitely recommend that you come here if you’ve never been to Asia and are on a stop-over flight. Just spend an hour walking along the little streets. And bring your … Continue reading
There is so much life in little India that I just can’t get enough of it. It’s a bit hard to navigate the narrow roads. Especially f you’re not familiar with the streets. You’ll encounter many no entry and … Continue reading
I found the Dali sculptures both beautiful and thought provoking. I definitely have quite a lot of repressed feelings and I probably repressed them, just to survive. I think this is probably true of most people. An interpretation of A … Continue reading
I have so much to show you from the museum visit that I need to do this in many parts. I must say, that just the layout and design of the museum itself was of a high standard and reminded … Continue reading
I think Singapore is one of the few places in the world with colourful buildings. They add prettiness to our skyline. What’s best is, it doesn’t cost a cent to appreciate our old restored Architecture. One of the simple pleasures.
I remember a time when everyone thought (myself included) that Sentosa was lame and boring. Who would have thought that years later it is now our hottest attraction, mainly due to Universal Studios Singapore and Resorts World. It’s an absolute … Continue reading
I expected much more from the Singapore Food Trail which is the latest food attraction at the Singapore Flyer. At first glance I was impressed, as I am by anything novel, but after my inspection I was left wanting more. … Continue reading
Never thought I’d see graffiti in Singapore. Quite refreshing I must say, when it becomes part of street art. Perhaps poor Oliver Fricker should have tried this artsy area instead of our MRT trains that ended up embarrassing authorities with … Continue reading
If I’m ever to get a workout I prefer it this way. Walking around Arab Street looking for Haji Lane. And then after strolling through the lovely empty lanes, I would have worked up an appetite and can indulge guilt … Continue reading
After more than 40 years in Singapore and on this planet, this is the first time I have come across Hookahs and people smoking these beautiful water pipes. I sure am swakoo (Singlish for country bumpkin), but in a way … Continue reading
Thank you Expat Bloggers – For Introducing me to Haji Lane and Reintroducing me to the Awesomeness of Arab Street
Singaporeans usually pride themselves on not going to the usual tourist haunts and what we call tourist traps like Newton Hawker Centre. My recent excusion to Haji Lane has definitely changed my mind. Tourists traps can sometimes be uber cool. … Continue reading
There is definitely a French influence in Ho Chi Minh City that extends beyond their architecture. You can see it in their baugettes. And even Pho is said to have combined Chinese and French influence. There are many shops selling … Continue reading
As we drove past The Esplanade we were quite dismayed as it seemed like there was nothing to see, but when we walked towards the area after parking, I was thrilled at the sight before me. River Hong Bao 2011 … Continue reading
A view of the Marina Barrage area that’s reservoir as well as a leisure park where people can go to fly kites. I will feature that place in another post. Down at the Marina Barrage (Singapore’s 15th reservoir – makes … Continue reading
