Haji Lane and a Night Safari

It was the last day in Singapore and there were two things on the agenda, fill my half empty suitcase with some hip Asian clothes and then go on a nocturnal adventure with Singapore’s wild life. One out of two ain’t so bad right? Please disregard my tears. I read about Haji lane and was really worried it would end up like my visit to Far East Plaza. Granted, I think I went to the wrong Far East place, but still, I was scarred. You would be too when you…

Food Overload

Can you eat everything in Singapore in one day? Obviously no, but it doesn’t hurt to try. You know the saying, aim for the stars. If you miss, you still can still come up with a top ten list. In my case, I got through everyone’s top ten things to eat in Singapore. Now it’s time for me to come up with my own. Well, maybe I need one more trip. Come on, there’s so much here. And I really wanted to try those odd looking ice cream sandwiches. They…

Restful Friday’s

It’s strange when you have jet lag. At the start you’re clock is so messed up you’re downing two to three cups of coffee during the day and finding yourself wide awake and going out in the evening. It’s kinda like trying out that #drinktillyoupassout so you #sleptforeighthourstoresetyourclock till you give up. Then comes Friday morning and everything feels okay. I was all set on Singaporean time and now I have a few days to enjoy. So what else should one do on a Friday night. Right. Relax. And what…

Blast From the Past

Thursday was a light day, for work at the very least. But the main thing I remember about this day was going form local local places, like a mall close to the university. We went there to check out how graduate students go to bind their books. Not bad quality for about $10 Singaporean dollars. I was mainly interested after talking to my co-worker about it the night before. Didn’t think these places existed. Guess it’s a known thing among post four-year students like myself. Maybe one day I’ll strive…

Those Endless Singaporean Nights

It started as a normal Wednesday at work. You know, with going through emails, doing some work here and there, looking forward to lunch because you are looking forward to trying something new, then back to work, cup of coffee to keep yourself awake, maybe another, and another, and then your co-workers want to take you to a place to try out a drink. Bingo. I should have known that would light the fuse. But, “Oh, it’s where they invented the Singapore Sling.” The what? “You gotta try it. And…

Laundry Day

Yes. I had to do laundry, because I packed light on this trip expecting to do a lot of shopping and I mean a lot. But lo and behold, I couldn’t find anything I liked. That didn’t mean I was a picky shopper, it was more like I couldn’t find my way around the malls. They are all interlocked in some way in the labyrinth of the MRT stations. I felt lucky to find any sort of directory. And once I did, I didn’t recognize most of the stores. So…

Hanging with LinkedIn Singapore

It’s Monday and yeah, it’s time to head into work. Feels miserable being in a new city filled with new things to do, but then you forget this was a business trip. Can’t really complain though. For one thing, I got to come out here, and the other, this was LinkedIn after all, not some stiff collar company I have nightmares about. Ahem, government jobs *cough* *cough*. So after work we headed out to Level 33, a bar imaginatively named after being situated on the 33rd floor of the Standard…

By the Water

Okay so the main picture here isn’t of any type of beach, lake, or pool. In fact, only one of the pictures in this post will be that of water. Everything else will be, well, of food and stuff. That’s what you’re here for right? Well, here it goes. Met up with my friends out in Bedok for lunch. They took me to a hawker area next to the beach, the East Coast Lagoon Food Village, which wasn’t the pricier East Coast Seafood Center. This area felt more low key…
