My Singapore, My home. This tiny and beautiful island, only a dot on the world map are my beloved country. I have travelled the world and see quite alot but I have never feel so safe and free like in Singapore. A friend from Travbuddy persuaded me to write something about Singapore and of course I said Yes.Here it goes. Once a friend from Europe was worried about the humidity here, please do not worry, you will survive. I will try my best to tell you about Singapore the very best I can, I hope.
Singapore are very unique country in her own way, everybody speak english as english are the 1st language we learned in school. We also have our own version of English but that is another story. The road sign and informative board are all in English. So for those english speaking people, you are relief, right? Singapore is a multi racial people and also languages, lots kind of food to try and we have many shopping centre here and traffic lights.
I mentioned Singapore are multi racial society, the major race are the Malay, Chinese and Indian. Presently due to too many mix marriages, we have the new kind of Singaporean, the beautiful one. You can imagine all the festival we celebrated here, during Ramadan, you can go to a bazaar at Geylang and Malay village, you can get food, cloth, shoes, curtains, everything and same for Chinese New year season, normally a month before the holiday, there have bazaar at Chinatown and for the Deepavalee, the Indian celebration, they have a bazaar at Little India in Serangoon Road, check the internet for the event, for sure you don't want to miss this as it is very happening and joyous event.
Places to go in Singapore that I've been and recommended to any traveller or tourist. Here are some of them. I think we are the only country in the world that have two zoo, one for day time and one for night time, the day zoo are Zoological Garden and in the night, The night Safari and if you must ask, Yes the animal are in the cage.
Next stop, if you are a window shopper or natural born shopper, Singapore is a place to be. For cheap stuff , go to Mustafa Centre, they have mostly everything and they open 24hours, the 1st in Singapore. For electronic, you can go to Sim lim Square, I think they have about 6 stories of shop that sell from calculator, camera to computers, they accept all major credit cards ;-) Orchard Road you will get a different vibe, you can get Armani, Versace or Louis Vuitton there, original mind you! there are full of shopping centre along the road from the start to the end and if you come around June, we have 'the great Singapore sale', good luck! We open from 10am to 10pm, everyday of the year.
Now the best part, I like to talk about food, I loved spicy spicy food and place I recommended with my taste bud are Hajjah Maimunah at Joo Chiat and another branch near Jalan Sultan, they served a delicious malay and indonesian delicacies, I try to eat there at least once a month.
For night life, we have plenty for this small country. Name it what you want, we have it. Recommended 'waterholes' is St James Power House, please take a look at my review on this great night out and of course Zouk, an award winning party place.
I am not a guide but I am sure I know about my country. Sure I miss alot of some thing. I will add more in the future and keep it update. If you have any inquiry, please ask. I don't bite ;-P
