I read and hear often that there are hardly any houses left in the former colonial style. I don't know in which city such people walked around, it wasn't Singapore ;-).
The entire nature reserve was formerly known as Pasir Panjang Beach. The history of the park is very exciting and interesting. Admiral Sir Henry Keppel fought here successfully 1842 against the pirates, which attacked merchant ships again and again.
In Singapore you can eat expensive food, but you can also cook cheap. Besides Nasi Goreng (fried rice) I have another great idea here. Nearly that cheap.
Nasi Goreng for 4 persons for 5,41 SGD The basic recipe is one of the cheapest and most balanced foods I know.
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 →
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.
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.
At first glance everything seems super clean here. Singapore seems to do a lot for the environment and also the locals are encouraged to avoid plastic for example. But does this happen in practice? It's hard to say. Personally, I think it's still a bit too much of an "alibi" environmental awareness. You'll notice that... Continue Reading →
The word "lah" is appended everywhere and means nothing at all. It is similar to the word "gell" in German. "Aiyoh" is used as an exclamation when you are astonished about something negative. "Siao" simply means crazy. "Wah lau eh" is an exclamation when you can't believe something or are shocked.
Laws in Singapore are strict. There is also a point System (12 pt). Only a few offences are enough and you're a pedestrian.

Living in Singapore can be expensive, cheap or a mixture of both. This has to do with quality, but also with where and what you buy.
Directly behind the Marina Sands Hotel you reach Gardens by the Bay. Opening 2012 and 101 hectares large.
The large park is also suitable for jogging and is well used in the evening. It's known for its up to 50 m high Super Trees.
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.
Foreigners from Europe often have special ideas and wishes that are not offered by the local shops. You will be happy if you find articles and shops that sell goods you know.

Due to the many laws and controls, there is hardly any crime in Singapore. Also the cleanliness profits from it. Who lies and to whom this is proven, has to count on a punishment, which resembles cheating.
"Singapore is wiped and polished once a day." And that is to be taken quite literally. It is not only the drastic penalties and tight controls that have made Singapore one of the cleanest cities in the world. If not THE cleanest. The local people also have a strong interest in keeping it that way.... Continue Reading →

Good question. It certainly has to do with the fact that we already have Asia experience from China and Indonesia. But I think my husband's Danish company doesn't care about my experience.

Apartments should always be viewed. The pictures on the Internet rarely correspond to reality. This is true for cheap rooms, which do not necessarily have a window, and also for higher-priced offers, whose windows, depending on the area (government), are "iced up" from the higher floors.
