Singapore Layover

(red sign says ‘Remember To Eat’)

On my business trip to Bangalore, I got to stop over in Singapore for 7 hours. I think it was intentional of Singapore airlines.. To bring some tourism money to the country.

First observations of this country is of course it’s clean, and modern. Then I noticed there are a lot of tall Asian women here, and super skinny almost in an unhealthy way. I found that I immediately fit in pretty well. I spoke Mandarin, Cantonese and English to them when I felt whichever language would work best for me.

I took the metro system from the airport into the city. Of course it was clean and efficient.

I hired a man on a bike (don’t know the name of it) to get me to Chinatown and visit the temples and get some good food. That’s usually the only thing I care about when I get to a new place.

Of course I had my share of goodies.

 

1) fish balls on a stick

2) yams on a stick

3) black herbal jelly

4) milk with melon

5) frog congee

Other kind of interesting things
