Tiger Brewery Tour in Singapore: A Peek into the Factory of Singapore’s Iconic Tiger Beer

On one sunny Friday afternoon, my friend, my husband and I made our way to the far west of Singapore for the Tiger Brewery Tour. I was eager to join this tour because of curiosity. Meanwhile, both of them were really looking forward to the beer tasting session, obviously.

Would I recommend it? Yes, absolutely! Continue reading “Tiger Brewery Tour in Singapore: A Peek into the Factory of Singapore’s Iconic Tiger Beer”

Singapore Changi Airport Staff Canteen at Terminal 2

In a world-class airport like Changi Airport, most foods are ridiculously overpriced. But, my friends, fret not. There are 2 staff canteens in the airport where you can find food under S$5, one in Terminal 1 and another at Terminal 2.

At the time of writing, the staff canteen at Terminal 1 is under renovation. I’ll surely give it a visit and write about it once it’s completed.

Today, I’m going to show you how to find the new staff canteen at Terminal 2 because the canteen is rather hidden from the public. Continue reading “Singapore Changi Airport Staff Canteen at Terminal 2”

Appreciating Marine Biodiversity at Sisters’ Islands Marine Park

Do you know that Singapore has a Marine Park? I didn’t until last year. Upon researching about the islands, I learned that NParks conducts free guided walks twice a month. It’s called Intertidal Guided Walk. It is conducted during low tides of 0.4m or below, to let participants observe and interact with the marine life easily on the shore.

If you’re wondering whether it is worth your time to visit the Marine Park, read on as I share my experience about visiting Sisters’ Islands with NParks’ Intertidal Guided Walks. Continue reading “Appreciating Marine Biodiversity at Sisters’ Islands Marine Park”

Mangrove and Wildlife at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve – Migratory Bird Trail @ Kranji Countryside, Singapore

Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve is known for its rich biodiversity. The park itself is quite huge, with a total size of 202 hectares. It is too huge for us to explore in a day, so we are going to split it into a few visits. For our first visit, we explored the Migratory Bird Trail. Between September and March is the migratory season for the birds. The mudflats at Sungei Buloh serve as a place for waders to feed and roost. We spotted birds on the mudflats, along with other animals throughout the trail. The length of the trail is 1.95 km, it took us 1.5 hours to complete the loop while walking slowly and stopping occasionally to snap photos. You can find park information and the walking routes at here. Continue reading “Mangrove and Wildlife at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve – Migratory Bird Trail @ Kranji Countryside, Singapore”

Watch Goats Milking, Drink Goat Milk, Feed and Pet the Goats at Hay Dairies Goat Farm @ Kranji Countryside, Singapore

I was born and raised in a city. I ended up moving to an even bigger city in my late teens. So, anything related to farm excites me! I first visited Hay Dairies in my university time, around 10 years ago. I don’t remember much about it. I decided, now is the time to revisit this goat farm. This time, I’m going with my boyfriend, and it’s his first time visiting Hay Dairies.

What can you expect to do in Hay Dairies? Well, basically I’ve listed them all in the title above! Now, let’s dive into the details, shall we? Continue reading “Watch Goats Milking, Drink Goat Milk, Feed and Pet the Goats at Hay Dairies Goat Farm @ Kranji Countryside, Singapore”

ION Sky – Singapore Skyline’s View From Orchard

So, I am currently in a skyline craze. I found another place to see Singapore Skyline! This time, it’s from the 55th floor of ION (a shopping mall located at Orchard Road). The observation deck is called ION Sky. Admission is free, but they are open only from 3pm – 6pm, so don’t go there too early. Before you go, you should check here to see if ION Sky is open for public or closed for private events. I can’t wait to show you some photos!

Singapore’s Skyline View From The Pinnacle @ Duxton

I’m a big fan of city skyline. I’m always ecstatic looking at all the buildings from above or from far. When I went to Hong Kong this year, I revisited The Peak, was and will always be in awe with Hong Kong’s skyline. In Tokyo, I went to Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building’s observation deck on 45th-floor to get an awesome view of the city.  In Bangkok, I witnessed an astonishing night cityscape from Baiyoke Sky’s revolving observation deck at 84th-floor.

In Singapore, I had gone up to MBS’ Skypark and ridden Singapore Flyer. They were breathtaking and deserve “must-visit-before-you-die” mark. The only downside was, they were expensive. The ticket for MBS’ Skypark is S$ 23 per adult; meanwhile, an adult ticket for Singapore Flyer costs S$ 33 at the time of writing.

Recently I was researching for things to do in Singapore and found out that the rooftop of The Pinnacle (a very posh public housing apartment building) is open for public for a mere price of S$ 5. How cool is that? You paid a small price for an access to a rooftop at 50th-floor and you get to see Singapore’s city area with much lesser crowd compared to MBS or Flyer.

How to travel from Singapore to Johor Bahru (JB) by Public Transport Bus

As someone who stays and works in Singapore, I have to admit that I am constantly looking for short getaways to neighboring countries. The nearest city from Singapore would be Johor Bahru, one of the major cities in Malaysia. You could travel from Singapore to Johor Bahru via public transport or by driving. The travel duration from Singapore to JB depends greatly on traffic condition. And nope, there is no flight between JB and SG. Some people, on rare occasion, do walk across the border. However, please do not walk because it is dangerous as there is no pedestrian footpath.

In this post, I will write about how to go from Singapore to Johor Bahru by public bus. Do note if you pay bus fare by cash, please pay with exact money because no change will be given; you will then be given a ticket that you must keep throughout the journey until you reach your destination. If you don’t have exact cash and are taking CW buses, you can go to CW counter to buy the ticket instead of paying on the bus; the counters are usually available at every starting point of the buses’ routes.

Guides on How To Maximise Your Visit to Universal Studios Singapore

Have you ever visited Universal Studios Singapore? If yes, did you leave with disappointment because you didn’t have enough time to enjoy all the attractions? Do you ever wonder whether Express Pass is necessary at all? Do you want to know how to maximise your visit so that you can save money but still enjoy all of the attractions?

In my first visit to USS, my friends and I were pretty occupied with taking photos and queuing for the rides & shows, we didn’t have time to enjoy all the attractions. Recently, my bf and I have purchased 6-months season pass so that we can truly explore the park during our leisure time. Over the 6 months period, we have taken our favorite rides for many times, we know when the best time is to visit the park, we know the shortcuts, and we know which rides are worth visiting. Based on my own personal experience, here is my Universal Studios Singapore Guide. Continue reading “Guides on How To Maximise Your Visit to Universal Studios Singapore”
