If there is one word that will describe my Singapore experience, that would be “unique.” I’m still in awe, even up to now, with the country’s harmonious blend of culture, architecture, and sophistication. I love the country’s discipline, cleanliness, and the Singaporeans’ simple but elegant approach to life. If I were to work outside the country, this country will definitely be at the top of my list.


Day 1, January 25

Straight from our India trip, Sir Pepe and I were in Singapore already at 9am. We went straight to Grand Central Hotel to leave our bags, rode the train going to the Novena Church to hear mass.

Sir Tony, Ms. Ajie, and Mr. Zulueta, arrived at the hotel after lunch. After checking in, we ate at Boon Tong Kee at
River Valley Road, said to be home of the best Hainanese Chicken in Singapore!
Then dropped by Ntan Office in Orchard Road to meet our partners and discuss a little bit about business.

We spent the rest of the afternoon walking, only making quick stops to take pictures of each other.


Day 2, January 26

We had breakfast at Raffles Hotel. Best I’ve experienced so far. The hotel was built in 1887, and was declared a National Monument 100 years after. The elegant interiors and excellent service makes it hands down worthy to be called the jewel in the crown of the hospitality industry in Singapore.

After lunch, we went to One Degree 15 Marina Club, an exclusive yacht club in Singapore.

Day 3, January 27

Explored Sentosa, Singapore’s popular island resort, with my good friend Diane!

Then Clark Quay for a round of drinks before going home.

SOME NOTES:
– I feel safer in Singapore than in India. Maybe because I blend in the crowd.
– I love the food! I’m a noodle person, and there are a lot of noodle houses there!
– Transportation is not a problem. You can walk, or take the train. Cab rates are more expensive, but you can always take the bus as well.
– Cigarettes are super expensive! Liquors too! Food, on the other hand, is reasonable. You can get a full meal at SGD5, or about Php 150.
