Singapore is so culturally diverse that it feels as though you can walk from one country to another -Arab street, was filled with Arabic food and shopping outlets and the architecture of the entire street felt Arabic. Little India gave all the Indian feels in the entire area....cross over to Sentosa Island which is home to exciting events, themed attractions, award-winning spas, lush rainforests, golden sandy beaches ... fun for everyone!

🙂 Clean. Safe. China Town. Ban on chewing gum. Singapore Sling. Raffles Hotel. Sentosa island and cable car.

THREE things we did not know about Singapore:

  1. Don’t be too surprised to hear Singaporeans adding exclamations like ‘lah’ and ‘leh’ to their sentence. Singlish— our colourful local slang— is an integral part of everyday conversation amongst Singaporeans. Singlish is a collection of colloquial catchphrases and lingo influenced by Singapore’s multiculturalism. 
  2. Singapore is among the 20 smallest countries in the world, with a total land area of only 682.7 square Kms
  3. Completed in 1910 and named after then Governor of the Straits Settlements and High Commissioner for the Federated Malay States, Sir John Anderson, the steely exterior of Anderson Bridge looks like something out of a dystopian flick. But it has a morbid past too. Before becoming part of the famous F1 Singapore street circuit, it had severed heads of spies and criminals hung around it by soldiers during the Japanese Occupation as a deterrent.
