Singapore Photo Diary

After being on the road (and sky) for almost the whole day, we finally arrived at our hotel in Singapore late in the afternoon. From the island of Samet, we had to charter a speedboat to take us to port because we had to be at the airport in Bangkok at 8 in the morning, and to get there takes at least 3 hours by boat and car. It was the craziest time. A supposedly 45minute boat ride from the island took us only 15 minutes by a speedboat. You can imagine how fast it went and shook us to our guts. By the time we arrived at at the airport, even before boarding the plane, I was already exhausted. But I couldn't let that spoil all the fun. We went straight to Sentosa as we landed in Singapore, and when we got there it was already dark. But we couldn't let time put to waste because we're only staying for a mere few days. So right after checking in, we chilled by the pool, dined at the Malaysian street food hawker fair, and took a walk the at Sentosa boardwalk as we headed for the city.

Unlike Thailand, Singapore isn't very colorful. But I already love its people. Everyone we encountered seems to be genuinely nice and helpful. Even without us asking for help, they're very much ready to offer. I like that they all speak English too. But there's a lot that we can't do. "Singapore is a fine city" - They mean that literally. You get fined for so many different things, even for drinking any kind of beverage inside the train. I guess its the main reason why people here are very disciplined and behaved, and why the city is very neat. It's beautiful in a way much different than Bangkok. It's very much developed and all what you can expect of a city. I have to be honest though, this isn't the kind of place I want to live in - I don't like a fast-paced lifestyle. But I do envy its residents, because they live in a beautiful city that is very well taken care of. I wish every place in the world is well taken care of.

Cheers, Carla
