No. Seriously - All of my cards just stopped working and the banks weren’t able to help me out so I was living off $14 and some spare Vietnamese Dong.
When you’re traveling you’ll sometimes find yourself wondering if you could live in whatever city it is that you’re venturing around. I like to think I would be able to live in Istanbul, Seoul or Budapest but when it comes down to it I don’t think I would actually be able to take the plunge. The adjustment would be too extreme and i’d likely come running back to my American lifestyle after a few months if I tried. Singapore is different though. Not because I liked it so much but because it’s so simple. Had I awoken from a coma on a sidewalk in downtown, I might not even notice I wasn’t in America for a short period. All the signs are in English and there’s a dude who casually lets you know in an ever so slight accent that you cut in front of half the queue at the restaurant. It all feels just like home. Hell. If anything someone using the term queue would have been the thing that set me aloof. The best word I could use to describe Singapore as an American is bland. Now, Is that a bad thing? I don’t know. I guess it all depends on what you are wanting. Bland isn’t exactly something that I seek when traveling abroad but it was comforting to experience after a few weeks in much more hectic Vietnam. I’d say the city is a mesh between Los Angeles and New York. Except with a slight Asian twist and absolutely no gum as it’s illegal. 😉

Being a working mummy without a helper, I am always busy with housework till I have little time left with my kids. I prefer to engage cleaners to come on a part time basis to clean my place than a live-in helper so that I can enjoy my privacy while still getting the help.

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!
