My Singapore Itinerary

Singapore: September 05, 2016 to September 13, 2016 I found that we’ve been traveling during the first 2 weeks of September for the last few years! 2013 = South Korea, 2014 = Hawaii, 2015 = Australia and this year 2016 = Singapore and Hong Kong. When we had finally decided that we were going to […]

Singapore Night Safari

We live pretty close to the World Famous San Diego Zoo, so going to Zoos/Animal Parks located elsewhere are always something we contemplate over for a long time. We went back and forth in deciding whether or not we wanted to make a day trip to go to the Zoo, Bird Park, Night Safari, etc. But we […]

The National Museum of Singapore – a day at the museum

We wanted to go to at least 1 museum in Singapore with my family and I went back and forth trying to decide on what museum to go to. I ended up going back and forth trying to decide between The Art Science Museum or the National Museum of Singapore. We ended up going to […]

The Central Clarke Quay – our Airbnb

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 […]

Old Airport Road Food Centre

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 Republic Hawker Center Style Food Court

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, […]

Gardens by the Bay – Supertree Grove and OCBC Skywalk

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 […]

Gardens by the Bay – Cloud Forest and Flower Dome Double Conservatories

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 […]

Marina Bay Sands and Sky Park

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 […]

Merlions are the Lions in the Lion City: Merlion Park and Sentosa Merlion

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 […]
