  1. Apologies, have been busy, hadn't been updating this. Singapore just celebrated our 54th National Day, on 9th August. Mr Ramli Sarip singing our National Anthem. Moving. https://youtu.be/ALRSqIc5qHM The Mobile Column at the National Day Parade. Check out all the Armour on display. https://youtu.be/YPvz66DfawQ Chinook helicopter carrying our state flag as the National Anthem is sung. https://youtu.be/toYJ0gFB-vc The Red Lions (paratroops) landing. Always a crowd favorite! https://youtu.be/HBGDSawWIdA Fireworks. https://youtu.be/00tfglYWBZ0
  2. Scoot is wholly owned subsidiary of Singapore Airlines. They are low cost, so don't expect any frills. And they seem to have had some reliability issues of late, but safety-wise they are not different from other Airlines. I've flown with Scoot a few times, but not recently. This video is a flight to Hong Kong from Singapore on Scoot. Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Scoot has a premium product called ScootBiz. Think of it like Premium Economy. This was our experience to Hangzhou, China, also on their Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
  3. I did this some years back. We booked in advance. But the place doesn't look to be crowded, so you should be able to book a boat when you arrive. Part 1 Part 2
  4. Changi AIrport has a new attraction - Jewel. The fountain is very impressive. Check it out!
  5. The new Jewel @ Changi Airport is quite amazing. It is in the public area, directly connected to Terminal 1, and also connected to Terminals 2 and 3 via covered footbridges. Check it out if you have the time! I made this video when I visited Jewel during a very crowded public holiday. https://youtu.be/TgJi8hOJTdg
  6. For those of you who are staying at Fairmont (which is next to City Hall MRT station), do check out the supermarket located at the basement. Useful place to get stuff. I was there during a weekend evening. Plenty of discounted sushi on sale. In the same complex, there was a MOS burger. I had the Wagyu Beef burger, which wasn't too bad. At level 3, there is an air conditioned food court where you can meals at a decent price (by city center standards of course). Check it out!
  7. Hawker food in Singapore. We have plenty of food centers, called Hawker Centers. This stall at Whampoa Market serves very good prawn noodles. I enjoyed it! This stall at Pek Kio Market sells awesome wan-ton noodles. Lovely stuff. Another random video by me - Holland Village! Somehow this place has many caucasians. Right next to Holland Village MRT station.
  8. There is a relatively new Courtyard by Marriot, which is located at Royal Square, right next to Novena MRT station. I go there now and then to eat at their semi-buffet for lunch. A great place to chill! The views at night must be gorgeous too. This video was taken at a supermarket at Raffles City. Raffles City is a shopping complex, connected to City Hall MRT station. The Fairmont hotel is connected to this place too. There is a convenient supermarket at the basement. The Yan Chinese restaurant at City Hall is another great place to have a meal. We were there for some lunch recently. Best part was that there was an open deck, where you can view the beautiful civic district of Singapore. In fact, you don't need to eat at this restaurant to go to the viewing deck! See 1:20 of the video. This video was made when I took a walk from Capital Tower Singapore, to Tanjong Pagar MRT station.
  9. Glad you enjoyed your visit to Singapore!
  10. I admit I am not 100% sure. My best guess is no.
  11. Thanks for the comparisons! Alcohol in Singapore is very expensive because the taxes are high. However, you can get duty free alcohol when you arrive at Changi Airport.
  12. This video may help give a sense of the wine prices in Singapore.
  13. I've been to Langkawi but not to pregnant island. I've visited 2 places. One would be the Skybridge. This video gives you an idea. The other would be the Kilim Karst GeoForest, which is a UNESCO site if I recall correctly. https://youtu.be/qMLZs4RPtXE
  14. I don't have a personal favourite. They are more similar. Maybe I am easy to please.
  15. Some food videos. We are well known for our hawker culture, and the Hainanese Chicken Rice is one of our staples. This is what it looks like. Another version, from a different stall. Yet another version. According to the UK BBC, this dish is worth a 15 hour flight - http://www.bbc.com/travel/story/20151105-the-singapore-dish-worth-a-15-hour-flight "Born out of frugality, Hainanese chicken rice – one of Singapore’s national dishes – may seem simple. But it’s the kind of dish you’d cross continents to eat." I've even tried Chicken Rice on board Singapore Airlines, just for the fun of it. But it definitely tasted better on the ground.
