Why would someone pay money to go to a country by sea and spend 24 hours on the ship one-way, when you can just take a 1-hour flight to get there?

So, how did I end up on… Read More

To answer… Read More

Who can live and travel without data SIM card? I CAN’T. SIM card is my second priority when I arrive in a new country, after local currency. Having a local SIM card with data gives me confidence and assurance that I can survive in a new country even if I don’t speak the language. So, I always include tips about buying local SIM card in all of my airport guides. When my family and friends visit me in Singapore, they’re always asking me to help them buy SIM cards.

Each has its own pros and cons, and each is suited for different types of travellers. In this post, I write about the details of each card, followed by situations when a certain… Read More

Woohoo I finally visited another theme park in Singapore. This post is about Adventure Cove Waterpark in Sentosa. If you have never heard of the park, it’s understandable. It’s less popular than its sisters, Universal Studios Singapore and SEA Aquarium. But it’s totally different from USS or the aquarium. So, what is Adventure Cove again? Well, it’s a water theme park with slides, rides, and so many more exciting stuff. I can’t wait to write all about them! Let’s start!
