The  Singapore skyline changed dramatically when a hotel, casino, mall, convention center etc. was built right in the Singapore Bay. In 2007, I remember hearing people talking about the controversial casino being built and how they were filling in the bay to build this thing. What I never imagined was what it would look like. […]

Choosing where to stay when on vacation is always one of the most stressful things for me. We opted to use Airbnb during our stay in Singapore, and our choice turned out to be a rather nice place for us to stay. Check out that sunrise view! Our studio apartment was conveniently located above the Clarke […]

If you have been following my posts from my trip to Singapore last September you will have noticed that we have visited quite a few different food centres. Those food centres range from a modern food court at Food Republic to a touristy mock street market at Chinatown Food Street and Malaysian Street Food to a more traditional […]

FOOD is always the first thing that comes to mind when I pick a vacation destination. Of course after hearing about all of the great food from Singapore from Sarah, how can I not be excited? On the first night we arrive in Singapore, we briefly roamed around the various malls in the Orchard Road area, […]

We got a glimpse of the Supertree Grove and the OCBC Skywalk from our visit to the Gardens by the Bay on the previous day, but we didn’t actually explore the area.  We found time the next day to make a stop there to get a closer view of these Super trees and Skywalk.  Since it was almost the […]

Singapore is nicknamed the “garden city” and with the additional Gardens by the Bay in 2012 their nickname is more like “the city in the garden.” The beautiful Gardens by the Bay takes up 250 acres of reclaimed land and consists of gardens along the bay (south, east, and central). Bay South is the biggest […]

What do you think of when you hear people talk about Singapore? One common answer I get from friends and family would be the Marina Bay Sands. Well, most often then not they would refer to it as that hotel building thing with the boat on top or the place with the really cool infinity […]

The name “Singapore” means “Lion City” and with that many legends and stories came along explaining why an island where there are no lions native to it could possibly be called the “Lion City”. I guess we can safely say the Merlion; a mythical creature with a head of a lion and the body of […]

After a long day at Sentosa we headed back on the cable car for Singapore. Our plan was to take the cable car back to Mt. Faber, take a taxi back to our place in Clarke Quay and then head out to either No Signboard Seafood OR Jumbo Seafood depending on whichever one had a […]

Sentosa is a small resort island south of (the main?) Singapore Island; home to beach resorts, Universal Studios, golf courses, Fort Siloso and many other touristy attractions. It’s one of those places that is a must go to place in Singapore when visiting. We dedicated a whole day for Sentosa but there is definitely enough […]

We were pretty tired after almost a full day in Sentosa after taking the cable car from Mt.Faber, spent several hours at the S.E.A. Aquarium, ate a lot at Malaysian Food Street, a bit of history at the Sentosa Merlion and then some stunning views from the Southernmost Point in Continental Asia and Sentosa cable […]
