Another Weekend in Singapore

I love Singapore and I’m super lucky that my cousin lives there as I certainly wouldn’t get to visit as often if she didn’t! We went for the weekend at the end of November 2016, flying with Singapore Airlines from Bangkok which takes around 2 hours, to go to Neon Lights Festival, which you can…

Neon Lights Festival, Singapore 

At the end of November we headed to Singapore to attend Neon Lights Festival. This two day event (no camping) was held at Fort Canning Park and we bought tickets for the Saturday (around £65 I think) mainly to see Foals but also just to get our fix of live music! Something we don’t get…

A Weekend In Singapore

Back in August we had a long weekend for the Queen’s Birthday so we headed to Singapore to spend some time with my cousin and her husband. We had a fab time and have fallen in love with Singapore a little more! There was shopping (Sephora, Kikki K and Crate & Barrel), cocktails and a…

Singapore Snapshot

A few weeks ago I had to pop to Singapore for 2 nights. I won’t go into details but it was hectic and pretty stressful. Thankfully I was staying with my cousin which was lovely as we just hung out and caught up and went for dinner with a friend from Bangkok who now lives…

River Cruise, Singapore

This is my last Singapore related post *sob*, I have really enjoyed blogging about our days there and quite frankly am looking forward to going back! One of the things we liked most about the city (aside from the ridiculously perfect pavements and that baked brie) was the river winding its way through and the…

Gardens by the Bay, Singapore

Gardens by the Bay was officially opened in 2012 as part of the effort to turn Singapore from the ‘Garden city’ to the ‘City in the Garden’. Situated next to the Marina Reservoir the park has amazing views over Marina Bay Sands Resort as well as the Singapore Flyer (the big wheel) and the city….

Universal Studios, Singapore

Whilst we were in Singapore it was Dave’s birthday, to celebrate I dragged him to Universal Studios. He wasn’t massively keen as he’d never been to any of the big theme parks before and I suppose didn’t really get what the big deal was, having visited the California parks as a child I was stupidly…

Botanic Gardens, Singapore

We spent a lovely afternoon exploring the Botanic Gardens in Singapore with my cousin. The guidebook told us it is said to be one of the ‘finest botanical gardens in southeast Asia‘ and boy can I believe that. Established in 1859 the park combines lush tropical areas showcasing local plants as well as manicured gardens…

Lets Eat, Singapore

We had some great meals in Singapore last week. Yes price wise it was very different to what we’re used to in Bangkok but we did find places to eat delicious food for reasonable prices. Here’s a rundown of the places we found that we would definitely visit again! Japanese ~ Clarke Quay The heavens had suddenly…

Singapore Wandering

I always find the best way to really see a new place is to don some comfy shoes and walk it. Singapore was no different. It’s a very easy city to walk as unlike Bangkok, the pavements are lacking in cracks and holes and are generally immaculate, it didn’t take us long to realise we no…

Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

Sunday in Singapore was a fabulous day…I got to see my cousin who I hadn’t seen in over 6 months! After checking into our hotel we got changed and headed straight out, we met up at Boat Quay for a glass of vino then moved onto Marina Bay Sands for a few drinks at the 57th…

Review ~ Hotel 1929

I eventually found our hotel, after hours of mind numbing surfing on Trip Advisor, through an article on The Guardian website titled ‘Top 10 good value hotels in Singapore’. I wasn’t looking for anything fancy, just something a bit different and hopefully, a bit more personal. We were torn between a couple from said article…
