Chinatown and Sentosa Jul 01, 2011
Chinatown is one of my favorite place to explore in SIN. The area is not big, it is rather dense and there are endless diversions for food, shopping and sight seeing. There is also a night market here but the day time activities are not to be missed esp. for the temples operational hours so I suggest an early morning trip here.

After lunch, Sentosa is next. U can easily spend a whole day here and that can get expensive as u have to pay for each attraction (they dont have a all in one pass). So choose the attractions u want to see and spend the afternoon walking around. Highly recommended attractions are the aquarium and the musical fountain (this is only available in the evening after sun sets). Please note : I wouldnt advise those who are used to Disney's or Universal Studio's standard to compare this theme park with coz there is definitely no comparison. So if u r expecting top quality attractions, I would advise against visiting this island esp. if u r not going there with kids.

The rest of the night is yours ! But if u catch the first show for the musical fountain that begins at 7 pm, u can make your way to Mt. Faber by cable car and enjoy the rest of the night dining there overlooking the beautiful view.

Geylang - Singapore Jul 13, 2011
‘Red light place’ is in a bad state street.. and it’s a only place where’serve’ for sex purpose ;) In the very civilized country is still exist a black part. In Geyland, they devide even and odd Lorong ;) The even Lorongs are places for girls and gay from Chinese, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, India, Phillipino, etc and its separated like the country, sex like male or female, and level :p I had “Frog porridge” at Lorong 11 ;) Not very ewwwww as I think.. its quite nice :p And when I was in Lorong 14, saw that many Chinese girls looked like dolls with same faces and around 20-27 year olds. When the tourists passed by, they said a lot of mandarin (I think), don’t understand but know wat they talked about :p

Summary, nowhere is weird like this place. One side of the street has many hostels with low light. And in the other side was much lighter with yellow and white light and have many food shops, cars and bikes.

The official China town in Singapore is a nicely decorated tourist spot. Selling expensive Oriental stuff. There's also a museum there showing the old days in Singapore and how Chinese lived at that time. Cost $8 SGD.

I was scared by the admission fee and as a HK Chinese, these kind of exhibition can be easily found in HK cultural museum, which cost only $3SGD I think.

So here comes the real China town....Geylang, here you may not find nice and expensive chineses restaurant or shop selling silk or china. But you can see and experience how Chinese live.

This place is similar to Mongkok and Yau Ma Tei in HK. Nothing special, but you can see the real life and living of Chinese.
