I love going to see stuff that most people don’t do. When in Singapore, most people head off to see the obvious shiny stuff – the Marina Bay Sands, shopping on Orchard Road, Day trips to Universal Studios and while there absolutely nowt wrong with those things, one experience I definitely recommend when in Singapore … Continue Reading

I’ll be the first to admit, before moving to live in Singapore, I can’t say I knew much about this tiny country. I had a friend living there who gave me a quick low-down on what areas to look for apartments in and told me how safe it all was…etc but that was about it. I … Continue Reading

For almost half a year, we called Singapore home and what a glorious half a year it was. Elements of Singapore were reminiscent of being home in London (the diversity of people and food on offer for starters) though for the most part Singapore has its own unique feel. It’s easily a city/country that I’d move … Continue Reading

Okay, this is big news! 🙂 *drum roll* HAND LUGGAGE ONLY HAS JUST MOVED TO SINGAPORE!!! For the next few months anyway… We’re so excited as this is our very first this far East and there is so much to see, do and taste! I will try to do a longer and more detailed post … Continue Reading

I’m not a huge fan of botanical gardens. It’s not that they’re not nice/pretty/colourful/fragrant enough or anything of the sort. I just don’t know that much about flowers. Sure, I know how to identify the usual suspects – roses, orchids, lilies and the like but beyond that, I’m absolutely clueless. Like if you asked me … Continue Reading

“And where is this place that offers the promise of amazing cocktails and entertainment all topped up with a stunning 360 view across not just the country it is in but some neighbouring countries in the distance?” You ask. It is 1-Altitude in Singapore. And just in case you were wondering, nope, this is not a … Continue Reading

The lengths we will go to look for beaches, eh? Like I said in the previous post, looking for great beaches in Singapore has been a bit of struggle however due to some time-staking research, I finally found what is apparently Singapore’s best-kept secret! What is this I hear you ask? Lazarus Island Beach! Okay, … Continue Reading

On arrival in Singapore, one of the first things I did was explore my neighbourhood – once I was done with my Uni work from Cambridge which had the ridiculously timed deadline of a few days after I arrived – between jet lag, assignment deadlines and general tiredness, I felt like I spent the first few … Continue Reading

Okay, perhaps not as much the wild side as “the wild”… or at least as wild as a nature trail can be! On this afternoon in Singapore, four of us decided to go explore the MacRitchie Nature Trail (another highly recommend FREE thing to do in Singapore) however as half the party was quite jetlagged, … Continue Reading

Right, so assignment handed in and free time restored,  we proceeded to discover more of Singapore and in what turned out to be a rather short walk, ended up at the Marina Bay. To be fair, the initial trip to the Bay was to look for either the “Gardens by the Bay” or the “Marina … Continue Reading

Bit of background, I’ve been quite lucky to have spent the last few months living outside of the UK. Funnily enough, for all my love of travelling, I’d never been to Asia before and so this was a summer of firsts. The first opportunity I got, I packed as much travel as possible into every … Continue Reading

I need some advice! As part of my holidays anywhere, one of the things I enjoy the most is trying out local food! I’m such a foodie at heart and I genuinely get excited once I know there’s food involved in a trip anywhere. That is of course until I came across the Durian Fruit. … Continue Reading

Singapore has a poor reputation when it comes to beaches. For all the flash and pomp the city-state has, with its towering steel and glass towers, beautiful people and amazing food (to mention but a few), it is notorious for having no ‘really nice’ beaches. There’s perhaps one beach of note in the Sentosa resort … Continue Reading

After living in Singapore for 6-months, we’ve come to know the city (and country) pretty well.  It’s one of my favourite places to visit in Asia. This is all mainly due to the epic things to do in Singapore. It’s one of those cities that can appeal to everyone. Now, you might be thinking that … Continue Reading
