Arrived early for a lengthy meander through these sprawling, vibrant gardens. Ate some breakfast, made some canine friends and took plenty of pictures.
I’m baffled as to why this was listed #2 of things to do in Singapore by TIME.
Took me 56 hours to find out the US election results via a non-tv, non-internet source. Who spilled it? THIS guy!
Two days down. I go back and forth between who I think won the election Tuesday, but still have no idea.
No guarantees on how much MSG you’re getting, but for around $4, nothing beats the variety of Singapore’s large hawker centers like this one.
It’s a little pricey ($32 SGD) and touristy, but the Singapore Night Safari’s well-designed, well-planned and great for kids.
Singapore is safe, clean, predictable, pricey, ethnically diverse, humid, and boring.
It’s official! I’m going to Vietnam November 14th.
After almost 2 years here, Kerry shares her thoughts on Singapore.
I’m a happy contacts-wearing camper. Easier process than in the US and cheaper than 800-contacts!
That was Rob’s advice when I told him where I was headed. Pulau Ubin proved to be the perfect, non-touristy day trip from squeaky-clean, mainland Singapore.
Walking through Little India, I spotted these two Hindu women walking ahead of Ryan and me. My 2nd entry for this week’s photo challenge.
Sometimes I venture downstairs to The Bank, a pub directly below Rob’s place. That’s where I met Ryan, a married American who’s been living in London for 4 years, here in SIngapore for a two weeks on bidness.
It was actually Tina Fey (playing Palin) who said, “I can see Russia from my house!” What Palin said – “You can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska” – while insignificant, is at least accurate.
This tiny, handy seam-ripper is now part of my permanent packing list.
Random recap of my 10 days in Singapore so far.
For this week’s “big” photo challenge I moseyed over to the Promenade (about a half-hour mosey) and visited the biggest Ferris wheel in the world.
Can you spot Neko in 3 of the pics? I could live here forever.
Kerry and I went to the National Museum of Singapore where I came across the term “Peranakan”, which I don’t think I’ve seen before. My definition is “mixed-ethnicity people, found round these parts”.
Got to hang out with my Boston friend, Kerry, After 21 months here in Sing, she’s about to move back to the US with her husband and son.
