Short Getaway in Singapore

1 September 2017

Here we go again .....

Itching to go for a short getaway?  We know, we all leave it too late to book trips for the public holiday or long weekends, but don’t give up the idea of having a short break. We all need a break sometimes. If you are lazy to go too far, go to Singapore! I’ve lost count of how many times i’ve visited Singapore. I realised, even after so many times, there are still much to see and much to do in Singapore. Here’s something “NEW” that I’ve discovered lately. 


It is really awesome to shop in Singapore because they carry many brands that we don’t have it in Malaysia and it is much more cheaper especially when it is on SALE! On top of that, Singapore’s transportation systems make traveling from place to place is very efficient and convenient. It is pretty easy to get around. Just take the MRT to Orchard road/ Somerset station will do. 


Little India, the beating heart of Singapore, is an mix of culture and colour. From sweet treats, to aromatic flower garlands, to murals that speak a thousand words, there is a surprise behind every corner in this district loved by tourists and locals alike. You can find many streets art along the alleys with different stories to tell. Very instagrammable too!

The artists have drawn inspiration from their own perspectives of human relationships, history and the legacy of different parts of Little India. It is pretty interesting. 

You can also book a walking tour if you want to know more about the stories behind this place
