SEA Aquarium Singapore Sentosa

We made use of our Rediscover Singapore vouchers and spent a very enjoyable 2 hours in the S.E.A. Aquarium admiring aquarium fish tanks full of sharks, stingrays, marine animals and tropical fish, dolphins, crabs, sea urchins, corals, jellyfish, and all sorts of aquarium fishes.

The Gardens by the Bay in Singapore For The Perfect First Date

The Gardens By The Bay in Singapore is iconic and world-renowned. It’s also a great location to spend on one weekend, not only for families but also perfect for first dates, or just dates!

Italy to Singapore and my quarantine in Singapore during Covid-19 Pandemic

Here’s my experience serving 14-day quarantine in Swissotel in Singapore and the swab tests, back from a trip in Italy.

The Iconic Jewel Changi Airport in Singapore

Coney Island Day Trip

Coney island ? is just a 15 minute ? bicycle ride from my home, am I lucky or what? So I’ve played tour guide many times to this eco island, was chased by a troop of monkeys, even ? dipped into the water at a rather private beach.

Taipei Charm: Rustic Countryside Jiufen and Shifen

This day we decided to visit Shifen 十分 and Jiufen 九分, famed for its nature and rustic country side. The way to get there can be really confusing. It is possible to visit both places within one day though I’d prefer to stay a night in Jiufen so I could spend a full day in each place.

This is one of those trips which I got lucky to have unselfish travel buddies, half of which I didn’t even know before the trip. An unexpected invitation from an acquaintance and a post on Facebook, we have a team of six people in the mountain climbing trip.

Harbin China: 13th Harbin Ice and Snow World

The Harbin trip is what I’d call a quickie trip. An impromptu suggestion by Scott Polisky (my long time meetup.com friend whom I met in person only the night before the trip), quick enroute to buy thick winter clothings, time-pressed purchase of domestic air tickets the evening before the trip, some packing, a sleepless night and wala!
