If I could only choose 4 words to describe Singapore, they would be : spotless, sophisticated, busy and expensive.
It’s hard to tell now that this tiny, booming country that is speckled with sky-high buildings and posh shopping malls, was once a colonial backwater.
The lack of natural resources here is compensated by a wealth of jaw-dropping man-made attractions best seen at night, reason why countless foreign tourists including myself travel to Singapore.
But beyond its gleaming and vibrant night scene, I guess the most interesting part of Singapore is its multicultural residents, pretty much like Malaysia. A leisurely stroll in the city is like being transported from one country to another and I freaking love it!

BAUME DU TIGRE 🐅 TIGER BALM
🇨🇵Haw Par Villa - anciennement connu sous le nom de Tiger Balm Garden - est un parc culturel asiatique de 8,5 hectares, le dernier du genre au monde. Construit en 1937, il est considéré comme étant la plus grande galerie d'art en plein air de Singapour, c'est d'ailleurs l'idée d'Aw Boon Haw, le philanthrope millionnaire et très doué en marketing qui a mis au monde le baume du tigre! 🐅 Ce parc est un trésor de la culture, de l'histoire, de la philosophie et de la religion asiatiques ⛩
Est-ce que vous avez déjà utilisé du baume du tigre? Vous en avez pensé quoi?

There are so many nice things to see in Singapore’s Flower Dome🌺
The sculpture (swipe next photo) called La Famille de Voyageurs created by Bruno Catalano however is my favourite🌟 It depicts a family visiting Gardens by the Bay before heading to the airport for their journey home. As they depart, they take with them beautiful memories and leave a part of themselves behind.
Since I have experienced life in Singapore and made some wonderful friends here I have seen a lot of these ‘on and around the couch’ photos on social media. I always thought they looked really cool...
And now I’m actually IN one! 😁
Huge congratulations to the happy couple 💕

This time yesterday, we witnessed the end of Foo Leong Records, a family business of 54 years. The 79-year-old shopowner Mdm Wong Nam Thye held our hands firmly, happy to see new faces, and eagerly introduced us to her older regulars - some of whom were customers turned long-time friends.
All the shops were closed except hers. She said ever so warmly: "Don't forget me ah! Must visit me during Chinese New Year!" Watch the shutters go down on Foo Leong Records for the last time on our facebook page 😢. Link in bio. #endofanera#neverforget
