How is it that I have lived in Malaysia for 10 years, and I never once been to Singapore until a month ago? I suppose it is one of those "better late than never" cases. Not that I really missed out too much as Singapore and Malaysia are quite similar in terms of the culture and food. I have to say, though, I personally like Singapore more than Malaysia. I just feel that SG is a lot cleaner, safer, and the people are really friendly.
Even though I was only in SG for a few days, I did see most of what SG had to offer. The only place I didn't get to explore was the Sentosa Island. My parents weren't really into doing the adventurous activities, so there wasn't much point going there. I'm also kicking myself that I didn't try their chilli crabs which are a must if you ever go to Singapore!
The first couple of nights, I stayed at Royal Plaza on Orchard Road which is where all the malls are. Woweee, you definitely need several days to get through all the stores. There were high-end, luxury brands, as well as fast fashion, budget friendly shops. Shopping heaven for everyone.
Then I stayed at Marina Bay Sands and got to swim at the infinity pool! I legit woke up at 6am on my last day just for a swim before the crowd and catch the beautiful sunrise. Sacrificing my beauty sleep was worth it. Whilst at MBS, I also went to Gardens By The Bay. I was absolutely blown away by the amazing architecture and the beautiful surroundings. It was just as beautiful at night too- truly mesmerising! My friend took me to a rooftop bar there and let me just tell you the view was absolutely breathtaking. Possibly the moment I fell in love with Singapore...
