ok, boring blog. My two night day and a half stay in Singapore was fun, but not that eventful. I mostly walked around a whole bunch, saw all the must see districts, and then went on to Miri in Malaysia. I stayed at the backpackers cozy corner guesthouse, and, well, it was cozy! bunk beds in a hallway right off the balcony. open air etc. but, it had a hot shower, a free breakfast, and its location was superb at $10 a night, it was 1/3 of everything else. However, everything else includes some decor hostels that have amazing features like rooftop swimming pools (Hangout @ Emily's).Cozy corner did have a good location though, down the street from the legendary Raffles hotel and across the street from the intercontinental. The shopping malls here are way glitzy (id say that while they range as all cities do, but they take the top spot in Asia from my viewpoint). I wouldn't mind living here sometime, as everything is nice and organized, but very green and enjoyable as well. The downside was that, even in winter, the heat and humidity leave one feeling like a sweaty mess after a five minute walk. In this
