Singapore Life #12 – Haw Par Villa (Tiger Balm Gardens)

A few weekends ago we visited Haw Par Villa aka The Tiger Balm Gardens. I had read some reviews on trip advisor so I knew what to expect. Haw Par Villa is weird as shit.   It’s known as a theme park, but to me, a theme park has rides and this thankfully does not have rides.

Singapore Life #6 – Haze Days

This week in Singapore, it has been super hazy. The haze is caused by smoke coming from (potentially illegal) land clearing fires in Indonesia. As I type, Singapore’s Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) has hit 371. This is the highest reading ever recorded in Singapore and it falls

Singapore Life #5 – World Street Food Congress

Last Saturday we went to the World Street Food Congress. It’s fair to say I was pretty excited. There were 37 food stalls with food from 10 countries including Vietnam, America, Mexico, and India.   We were there for an early lunch on the second last day so it wasn’t

Singapore Life #4

We had a fairly quiet week this week, but on the weekend we went to the Singapore Food Expo. It was basically a way for vendors to showcase their brands and food and there was lots of samples as well as lots of fresh and packaged food to buy. It was absolutely packed, as most places i
