Chinatown

Chinatown

When I found out that Chinatown is one of the must-see places in Singapore, the first thought that came to my mind was, Chinatown in Singapore? Really? Why? My notion of Chinatown was a place where you can buy cheap products at cheap prices. What […]

Coney Island on a Holiday

Coney Island on a Holiday

Singapore is a tiny city-state and admittedly there isn’t much to explore, especially if you are someone who has been living in the city for more than four years. However, I am a person who tries to see things with a new pair of eyes. […]

Away From Toxicity

Away From Toxicity

Every now and then I look for a place to clear my mind, a place for solace and a place for calm. Life in the office can be too much sometimes. All the demands and all the deadlines can send you spiralling to toxicity beyond you can ever imagine.

I never thought that I would be in a situation like this; happy to have work which pays the bills, buys me the things I want and pays for my trips but at the same time I also abhor all the long hours in the office and the incessant tasks which seem to pile one on top of the other. No, you do not have to quit to travel but you at least have to love your job for you to stay sane.

Rediscovering Singapore

Rediscovering Singapore

What do you do when you are stuck in the city of Singapore during the Chinese New Year holidays with limited funds (hint, payday is still at the end of the month)? Well you can mope in your room and watch movies or you can do what I did, head out, have fun and rediscover the city where I have lived in for the past 3 years.

I am delighted to discover that there is so much more to the city aside from the ubiquitous skyscrapers and shopping malls. There are still plenty of green spaces where you can unwind and commune with nature.

Free Places to Visit in Singapore

Free Places to Visit in Singapore

When Singapore is mentioned, the word expensive comes to mind. The city, after all, has just been awarded the not so coveted title of “most expensive city in the world to live in”. Fortunately, there are still places in the tiny city-state where you can […]

Little Pancakes – Satisfying Your Hunger for Pancakes

Little Pancakes – Satisfying Your Hunger for Pancakes

I think it is not untrue to assume that everyone loves fluffy pancakes. They are just a delight! This food from heaven paired with maple syrup and butter is enough to make any person drool. I, for one, just cannot seem to get enough of […]

Trickeye Museum – A World of Optical Illusions

Trickeye Museum – A World of Optical Illusions

We live in a world of optical illusions. What you see is not always what you get and this could not apply more to any place than to the Trickeye Museum in Resorts World Sentosa.

Short for trick of the eye, Trickeye Museum is full of two-dimensional paintings which turn into three-dimensional images through the use of optical illusions. There are paintings on the museum floor, walls and ceilings.
