Two weeks ago, I went to Singapore for a much-needed vacation (I’m not kidding about the much-needed part, after 10 days working on-site, followed by another week of long hours, it really was much needed). To be honest, Singapore is not my favorite city. Sure, it’s clean, organized, and everything that Jakarta isn’t. It’s nice, but not great. But the thing is, I’ve always been a fan of ancient buildings and towns and that’s the main thing I want to see when I go somewhere, and Singapore has none of that. But when you want to escape Jakarta, it’s a good enough option.
On early Saturday morning, I woke up at 4.30 am to catch the 7 am flight, after only 4 hours of sleep. I don’t know how I had the energy to spend hours walking without a map, and getting lost. Not the best way to start the vacation, really, but at least we got this view on the way.
The second day, we went to Gardens by the Bay, and had a great time there. That place is beautiful.
We also went to the Skypark at Marina Bay Sands, where I clicked more than 300 pictures.
Singapore is a state-of-the-art city, but we also got to see the less modern part near the place we stayed in.
We also encountered unique stuff along the way, like this art pieces around Raffles Place,
this guy on Orchard Road,
and couples doing photo shoot at the most random places (I saw no less than 3 couples in 2 days).
We went to the ArtScience Museum on the last day to see the Dreamworks Exhibition.
Those yellow walls made me happy.
After that, on our way back to the apartment to get the suitcases before heading to the airport, I saw this blue wall that I hadn’t seen before, despite the fact that we passed that wall every day.
So naturally, we took pictures with that, feeling a bit blue knowing the holiday was coming to a close.
And so that’s the summary of Singapore. I know it doesn’t seem much, but it’s just a glimpse. Wait for more photos (and stories) about Singapore in the next few posts! ;)
