To take public transportation in Singapore, you need either cash or card. Paying by cash is rather inconvenient because you need to give the exact amount, otherwise no change will be given. Majority people use cards, but which card is better? There are 3 cards that travellers can use in Singapore: Singapore Tourist Pass, EZ Link and Standard Ticket. 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!
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. Choosing the best… Read More
If you are that last-minute guy/gal who always arrive at the airport just in time before the check-in counter closes, I recommend that you arrive much earlier if you’re flying out from Changi Airport. I’ll tell you why. There are SO many things to do, see and eat in Changi Airport! And don’t worry if you’re on a tight budget. The most awesome places in Changi Airport are free anyway! Because I’m an ambitious traveller, I did what I should do. I spent a lot of time at the airport, trying to… Read More
Hidden in the deep east, Wild Wild Wet may not be as famous as Adventure Cove in Sentosa. Wild Wild Wet is probably more well-known to locals rather than tourists. I’ve visited Wild Wild Wet a couple of times before. My latest visit was during my staycation at D’Resort this year, and we were thrilled to find new slides! If you’re planning to visit Wild Wild Wet, here are 10 things you should know before visiting.
What do you do when you desperately need a change of scenery yet can only take 1 or 2 days off from work? Have a staycation! To be honest, this is the first time I have a real staycation experience. For me, a real staycation is the one where I do not leave the hotel compound at all during my stay. Wouldn’t it be boring to spend all your time at the resort? Not really! I will share about how we spent time in D’Resort @ Downtown East during our 2-night stay.
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!
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.
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… Read More
