Beef broth with Japanese Noodles and hot crisp chili oil

A soup is not only good for warming up on cold winter days. Clear beef, vegetable or poultry bouillons bring a lot of vitamins and minerals with them. Just the right thing if you've got a bad stomach or are fighting a cold. Not to underestimate the amount of liquid. In other words, a meal that makes sense especially in hot countries. It is practically an electrolyte solution free of charge. Finally, I would like to mention that it is an extremely cheap meal.

Food poisoning/Diarrhea – and yes, we need to talk about that

Food poisoning is contagious! There's no way to say beyond a shadow of a doubt: "This can't happen to me" Not even if you cook everything yourself and only buy organic food. You are also dependent on the personal hygiene of all employees who handle your food. And not only that. Especially in warm countries, maintaining the cold chain is not always taken so seriously. And there are several other possibilities…

Sentosa – Madame Tussauds

I bought tickets online for the Wax Figures Cabinet. This is recommended anyway when visiting Sentosa, because the prices on site are almost twice as high. I decided to buy a bundle with the Trick Eye Museum and paid for one ticket 49,50 SGD. My expectations were therefore not low if I assumed that the local price would be twice as high…

Botanic Garden

Singapores Botanic Garden is today a UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE Site. Sir Stamford Raffles laid out the first botanical garden in Fort Canning in 1822. The present site was chosen in 1859. With 160 years of botanical experience, the 82 hectare garden today plays an important role as a tropical botanical institute in Singapore.

“Immediately soft”- Lebkuchen (gingerbread)

In the Middle Ages, gingerbread was only available in pharmacies and monasteries. Honey was the only sweet available and with medicinal herb juices baked, the gingerbread was considered a speciality, which one did not eat frequently. The typical spices came a little later, when e.g. cinnamon and pimento came over from the Orient.

Jiaozi (Dumplings)

It's not a big deal to make. Jiaozi are popular in Japan as Gyoza and in Korea as Mandu. It’s similar to Maultaschen in Germany, Piroggen in Eastern Europe and Pelmeni from Russia.

History of Singapore

Singapore's past is marked by many stories and legends. Which of these is the real, genuine story of its origin can certainly not be proven beyond doubt. But that's probably not that important either. The nice thing about stories is that they are comprehensible and exciting. And that's why I wrote a logical one for myself out of all the stories, legends and myths. If she is right in the end doesn't matter if you like her 😉. I have selected a few videos that fit very well to this article. They conjure up pictures in your head where my lines can't do that 😊.

Fresh Eggs in Singapore – only a myth?

If you're looking for fresh eggs in Singapore (in any shop), you'll probably read the best advertising slogans on the packaging first. There's nothing here that doesn't exist - at least that's what it seems. Eggs with Omega 3 and eggs with Omega 6 (really now?), eggs with Vitamin D, low cholesterol, with Selenium, Pasteurized, Carrot Eggs, Corn and Soya Eggs or First Born Eggs…

Little India

The days of shepherds and brickmakers are long gone. You'll think it's the past while you walk through this historic neighborhood.

Cockroach and mosquito races

Don't look away! Then the problem becomes really bad. Why this disgusting contribution? Because I think that on the one hand it serves the health to know dangers and on the other hand, because less and less people know what to do to protect themselves. Or how you can get rid of them.

Clarke Quay and Robertson Quay (Walk)

Since the foundation of Singapore in 1819, the Singapore River has been a trading centre. During colonial times, Boat Quay (in Front of CBD) became the trading centre. This is where the vessels arrived to bring their goods upstream to the warehouses at Clarke Quay. But also dozens of passenger ships crowded around an anchorage... Continue Reading →

Fort Canning Park

The mountain is 48 meters high and escalators were built so that visitors can get from the street "up" into the park. That sounds so crazy to us who came from the Alps.

Armenian Street and Peranakan museum

If you take bus 14 to NTUC Income Ctr/Bras Basah Rd, go down Victoria Street, past the Cathedral of the good Shepherd and turn right into Stamford Rd until you turn left into Armenische Straße. Here are many photo Motives.

Driving licence

Laws in Singapore are strict. There is also a point System (12 pt). Only a few offences are enough and you're a pedestrian. If you still want to drive a vehicle, you must have a valid driving licence. Rules for Foreigners in Singapore:Those who do not stay longer than six months in Singapore can drive with... Continue Reading →

Culture shock – You’ll get it

A culture shock is not a weak emotion that affects only a few people. It is a reaction to the foreign environment. Very few people are spared it. The shock sometimes occurs immediately, after a few weeks or months. Who knows about it and expects it, gets over the mood low faster.
