Waking up in my comfy room
The alarm buzzes. It’s so tempting to hit snooze, but the city is calling my name.
Running in Botanical Gardens
Acres of greenery, tropical flowers and the chirping birds– how’s that for a morning jog?
Savouring breakfast at the Club Lounge
What a spread! I’ll take some fresh toast, sausages and steamed goodies to get me going.
Shopping at Tekka Market
The colours of fresh produce pop in my camera lens. So shoot first, eat later, and the ‘Likes’ will pour in.
Walking around JooChiat
Peranakan architecture, vintage signs and old shop houses make visiting this neighborhood like stepping back in time.
Eating Laksa at 328 KatongLaksa
Talk about authentic Laksa! Spices, coconut milk and seafood– I’m in heaven!
Driving through Marina Bay
Zipping through the bay, and the amazing skyline is on display. It’s hard not to be impressed by this wonderful place.
Shopping at Haji Lane
I can’t tell if this is a hipster hotspot or a living art gallery, but whatever it is, it’s the place to be.
Visiting the China Town
Souvenirs, knickknacks and treats everywhere. I don’t know which way to look next in China Town.
Having Prawn Mee at Tiong Bahru Market
You’re never far from your next meal in Singapore, and this quintessential and hearty soup is one of my faves.
Appreciating art at Alkaff Bridge
Art on a bridge? Why not! It’s like walking through wonderland over this bridge in Clark Quay.
Browsing at Books Actually
A vintage, relaxed bookstore with a great mix of the unusual and hard-to-find. What more can a bookworm ask for?
Exploring Scape Park on two wheels
Pedal powering through Scape Park under blue skies. If this isn’t freedom, I don’t know what is.
Swimming in my pool
There aren’t enough emojis in the world to describe the view from the terrace pool. It’s like treading water above one of the magnificent cities on the planet.
Unwinding with a drink
Shaken drink. Stirring view. Cocktails just seem to taste better at a rooftop bar.
Hainanese Chicken Rice at TianTian
The chicken, tender. The rice flavourful. Singapore’s national dish is every foodie’s delight.
Getting inspired at M.A.D.
Who says museums have to be boring? This one has galleries, shops, and even a cigar lounge!

You gotta pack an appetite for any trip to Singapore, but it’s easy to find room for the decadent delights at Open Door Policy.
Cocktails at Potato Head
Full of fun, flamboyance and fabulous décor – this is my drinking den in Singapore.
Timbre live music at The Substation
The nodding heads and clapping hands tell me I’m in the right place for some good tunes.
Watching kites fly at Marina Barrage
The skyline brightens the night, and so do the kites flying above my head on this sprawling rooftop garden.
Cruising through Little India
It’s not just skyscrapers that light up a Singaporean night. Brightly lit Little India leaves me wide-eyed from every angle.
Midnight munching at Mr. Prata
Flip, flap and swirl. I’m amazed to see the chef roll out Pratas that go well with some spicy curry. Mmmm…
Retiring to my heavenly bed
The soft yellow lights and the sweet smelling bed sheets say to me, ‘welcome home’.
