Exploring Singapore, Episode VIII

Another week on leave, another opportunity to explore places in Singapore. Although as border reopens, this may be the final week-long episode for some time. Initially I structured my plans to be: visit a place for lunch, explore the surroundings, go back home and play game. However, plans changed along the way and that’s fine too.

Exploring Singapore Mini Episode: Raffles Lighthouse

In early April 2022, I went for a guided tour to Raffles Lighthouse. Raffles Lighthouse is the second oldest lighthouse of Singapore and is still in operation. Built at 1855 at Pulau Satumu, it is located at the edge of Singapore. The island is the southernmost point of Singapore. The only way to get here is to join the tour organized by Maritime Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), who also operates the lighthouse.

2021 in Review

Back in 2020, I set 2021 theme as “The Social Year”: aim to meet more people and sustain more friendships. Like the previous years, I’m assessing three aspects of my life: work, people, and health.

Exploring Singapore: Episode V

Right after my Cruise to Nowhere trip, I had several more off days to spend in Singapore. Because lots of my plans were cancelled in Episode IV, it was time to revisit those plans.

This time, my destinations were revolved around food and the activities filled in between weren’t fixed. Because of that, I started the day a bit late during lunch instead of in the morning. This way, I would be more relaxed as it supposed to be.

During the four days of leave, I visited Tanglin area, Changi area, Downtown area, and West Coast area.
