Short Yacht Cruise from Singapore

By admin

Our friend had some credit card points to burn so treated us all to a yacht cruise with White Sails. We set off around 6pm from Sentosa Cove (which has a Cold Storage handy for last minute food/drink purchases) on a Sunday evening, bounced our way to a cove on St. John’s Island and hung…

Visiting Old Kallang Airport

By admin

The Singapore Land Authority opened up the gates of Old Kallang Airport recently to visitors so I went along to try and imagine Singapore back in the 30s with this airport being the first custom built civil airport in Singapore in 1937. <history> In 1930 Seletar airport received the first civil flight from Amsterdam.

Visiting Gardens By The Bay Singapore

Because they are actual tickets! Yes! The queues for tickets were horrendous when we went (Good Friday) so online tickets are a good…

Visiting S.E.A. Aquarium Singapore

By admin

It’s always a good start when tourist attractions have tickets you can purchase online. Small alarm bells go off when said tickets aren’t actually tickets and you have to redeem them at the actual venue to get your actual tickets. Such it is with the S.E.A. Aquarium Singapore. The confusion continued when I used the…

St. Patrick’s Day in Singapore 2016

By admin

It’s that time of year again where everyone takes the time out to wish me a St. Patrick’s Day as if it’s a highly religious occasion and St. Patrick is my one and only ruling god. As religious days go, it’s pretty good. People expect you to drink at some point and listen to Irish…
