I went to Singapore in February 2015 for my mother's 80th birthday. While I was there, I took some more food pics as a visual aid to help me explain Singapore food to my non-Singaporean friends. As with my May 2014 food porn entry, I have labeled the pictures and made an attempt to describe the dishes. Enjoy the pictures and try not to salivate too much. Better still, go to Singapore and try these dishes yourself!... read more

Asia » Singapore » Pulau Ubin February 5th 2015

Hi Followers and blog perusers, Today we woke early to have a nice breakfast of bananas on toast before heading out finally to Pulau Ubin. As its our last day we really wanted to get in as much as we could!!! We took the metro EW line to Tanah Nerah and then took the number 2 bus to the ferry terminal. Anyone doing this, the bus stop is right outside the exit for the metro and it's easy to find the right stop, they are every 10-15 mins and they terminate at the ferry terminal so no worrying about the stop. We headed down to the ferry ticket office and found you had to queue up till 12 people turned up then a ferry could leave, strange and it meant we waited about 20 mins to ... read more

Asia » Singapore » Singapore Harbour February 4th 2015

Hi people, We started off the day with a swim in the parks pool. It was so nice to cool down in this heat, only problem was it was raining and the heat quickly disappeared and left us in a cold pool. Still was so good to have a swim and relax. We headed back to the condo for a shower and some breakfast. (honey on toast) We had planned to head to Pulau Ubin today but as the weather was so poor we decided to have a chilled day, we headed to have a look around chinatown, beth said it was good. We got there and found so many Chinese food stalls (made me a very happy boy) so we decided to have lunch there. I wanted something from one stall and vick another so ... read more

Asia » Singapore » Sentosa Island February 3rd 2015

Hi People, So we started off the day badly!! I check my bag and found I have lost £700 of cash in different currencies :( Vick was not happy and I'm gutted so much money to lose!! I have phoned both hostels we stayed at and no luck but to be honest if you found it what would you do....pocket it probably!!!! So after that start we headed out to Sentosa Island, it was recommended to us by many different people. We got the MRT (Metro system) there, which is very easy to use and follow as it's all in English unlike Russia and China!!! We walked over the Broadway bridge which was nice and only cost $1 (1 Singapore dollar = 50p). There is loads to do here and great for families, however it was ... read more

Asia » Singapore » Changi February 2nd 2015

Hi Followers and bloggers, I some how managed to get up and watch the Super Bowl which was at our 6am!!! I was shattered but had a few beers and chicken wings while watching it with some American lads!! I was gutted as it was the last quarter and we had to head off for our bus to the airport :( I missed the worst play in Super Bowl history gutted!!! So we got on the bus to the airport which was good as it was quicker than the taxis and a lot cheaper!!! Bangkok airport is quite nice and offered free wifi which is a bonus!!! We grabbed some lunch there which was not the best but wanted to get rid of the baht we had left over!!! So the flight into Singapore was good ... read more

What is the first thing to do if you happend to have a layover of a day in Singapore? Yes, exaclty , extend with another day at least if you could, because Singapore has so much to offer and so much to see and do... With approximetaly two days in Singapore ( from afternoon of 24.01 to the evening of 26.01), I didn't had much time to waiste, but heading the streets of it straight after check-in in the hotel.

We spent only one night is Singapore in a hotel in Chinatown. We travelled there from KL on an aircon 'Nice' executive bus. This supposedly is like an airoplane as you get an electric socket, screen with films to watch, food, and extra leg room. Infact the food was minimal (we had to quickly buy a KFC takeaway when there was a toilet stop at the services) and the film quality was I read and looked out the window instead of watching. No big deal....ticket price was £15 for 6 hour journey, but could have been less still on less 'Nice' ordinary aircon bus. In Chinatown they were getting ready for the new year (year of the goat) so everywhere was colourfully decorated and busy. The hotel room had one of those typical chinese shuttered ... read more
