Things I did in Singapore


Sentosa! You know the best thing about traveling solo is that you meet all sorts of people from different countries. This is Mai from Thailand. It’s been a long time since I’ve been here and there’s a lot of new additions…

…like the luge. My first luge experience was when I was 13 while on family trip to New Zealand. The luge in Sentosa is from a Kiwi company too.

studio m hotel

I stayed at Studio M Hotel which has an awesome concept – your room basically has two floors – the ground floor is where you work, chill and take care of your sanitary needs and there’s a loft upstairs where you sleep. I was half afraid I’ll wake up, fall out of bed and come crashing down to the ground floor but no, that didn’t happen, so fear not. πŸ˜‰

singapore arts festival

Singapore Arts Festival 2011. I was particularly interested in this one. It’s an outdoor arts fest which happens annually and there was one show in particular that I wanted to catch.

When A Grey Taiwanese Cow Stretched. I ran out of hyperbolic adjectives trying to describe this Osakan rap theater performance – moving, groundbreaking, engaging. It’s every bit as I had hoped it would turn out to be. It’s the first time they’re showing it outside of Japan too.

salvadore dali

Salvador Dali had an exhibition in the ArtsScience Center too. I love his work. You feel like you’re tripping when you’re not. Hands down my favorite artist overall – my favorite piece of work would be Edmund Munch’s The Scream but Dali is in a class of his own.

iberico pork

Pre-theatre tapas at Santi. I love the Iberico pork. Lovely porcine delights.

lion king singapore

The Lion King! Yup, the Singapore performance is every bit as good as the West End cast and they had a lot of localizations too. Gotta love that touch.

ku de ta

Drinks @ Ku De Ta with Joyce and Clem after the show. Amazing views.

universal studios singapore

Universal Studios Singapore!

battlestar galactica

I headed straight for the Battlestar Galactica rides – it was a staggering 75 minute wait for the Human and a 90 minute wait for the Cylon but I went for both anyway…


…and got some of the merchandize to boot. Yay! I’m a huge fan.

tai wah pork noodle

I ended it with a large bowl of Tai Wah Pork Noodle and a bottle of Tiger in the Singapore Food Trail. πŸ™‚

There’s so much I still haven’t written about – the trip was amazing, loved the art scene and theaters in particular. Thanks to Singapore Tourism Board for having me!


…and no, this is NOT a seal. :p

    • Yeah, basically the shower, toilet and working area with TV and all is at the bottom. You have a desk and a couch and a really great view (it’s one huge window) of the city.

      There’s a staircase that goes up to the loft where you sleep. There’s also another TV there.

      I thought it was pretty cool too. πŸ™‚

    • Yeah it was a lot of fun going down to Singapore!

      I love the shows that I went to – it was the Singapore Fest 2011 when I was down there so I managed to watch a theatre group that I’ve been meaning to catch for ages. πŸ™‚

  1. Some people get to have all the fun in the world. Where to next? I would love to tag along…but I bet you wouldn’t want that, would you? Cramps your style, I’m sure. Hehehehehe!!!

    • Haha! You know I actually wouldn’t mind. I’m sure we’ll have a lot of fun going to find all the nice places to eat in Singapore.

      It’s good to travel with all sorts of people. I find that rather enriching. πŸ™‚

    • Hello Eiling!

      Ya, I know you’re in Singapore, I got your DM on Twitter.

      I replied and said I lost your number too (coz I lost two phones) and asked for your number but you already flew off.

      No worries, we can catch up again. πŸ™‚

      Hey, I’m actually going to Singapore again next month. Heh!
