Millions had been written about my fave haven…Singapore.
For the nth time since 2004 my whole family keeps coming back 2-3 times a year.
I like the governance. The late Lee Kuan Yew is my idol for
leadership, determination to propel the country to heights, sincerity, integrity, discipline,
system and care for citizens and PRs (Permanent Residents).
Wish is for me to retire there.
Allow me to spell more which most are taken from family vacation (May 18-25, 2015)
to spend my son’s, Pastor Janssen’s, birthday
coinciding with our visit to my newly-wed daughter, Cha to Anton,
in their super comfy unit.Why Clarke Quay (pronounced “klark-ki”) in my cover photo?
It is one of the very many melting points where “expats”, citizens, PRs and visitors
converge from dusk to wee morning hours 7 days a week.
Witness them dine, quaff spirited drinks, bond and enjoy the ultra peaceful (though not that quiet) habitué.
I didn’t bother to take shots of their famous Orchard Road
as it’s particularly similar to major shopping streets elsewhere in the world.
Though very “noticiably apparent” here are:
the neatness of surrounding, the discipline of shoppers,
the absence of security guards with BBQ sticks
tickling and checking your belongings as you enter everywhere
and the deafening silence from “blowing of horns” by motorists.
Along Orchard Road, below is one of those basements
where we catch our breaths up before proceeding to next.
More of Clarke Quay…
Do you have the nerve and belly to do this?
That bounces up beyond the posts, turns 360 degrees and…and…just try.
Whew tired and hungry, let’s walk to the other side and have some seafood.
Underground tunnel…oh my.
Felt like being lullabied by that crooner sans sound system.
His voice reverberates due to “tunnel effect”.
And at last…our destination…to celebrate our last night in this wonderful country.
Brim-packed fortunately we had reservation.
Good food, fast service, though bit pricey like our other favorite
No Signboard Seafood at Esplanade
(I chanced upon a branch there too)
Let’s call it a night. Tired.
Let’s take their super clean, ultra efficient, mega cold and color-active bus line.
Days before we treated the kids here
at LUGE in Sentosa.
Via cable, from down up to beyond the top.
Down a bit to an elevated place where you ride
a non motorized go-kart propelled down by gravity with handle bar
(up-mid-down) for your speed and brake.Wanna see how peaceful, orderly and friendly this nation is…
Still at Sentosa, taking the tram, we let the kids experience
the “hanging bridge” at Palawan Beach.
Little Juan un-afraid.
Many excitements are waiting for you:
my dig, the different hawker centers where you will enjoy varied great and cheap food,
Gardens By The Bay,
