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.

Going Overseas: Cruise to Nowhere

The last time I was overseas was February 2020 when the pandemic was still brewing and came back to Singapore acting like a hero by bringing in few boxes of face masks. It has been such a long time since my last travel that packing for travel felt unnatural to me.

Technically, I was going overseas, leaving Singapore for 4 nights in international waters. The feeling while onboard cruise is like being on another world, where you are served well and felt full all the time. While the common name of this kind of trip is “cruise to nowhere”, to many of us, the cruise itself is the destination.

I embarked on 30 September 2021 and returned back to Singapore on 4 October 2021.

Exploring Singapore, Episode IV

This episode was planned to be more focused on food places and things in between, but everything changed when the Circuit Breaker 2.0 Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) was announced. Plans were changed, activities were reduced, dining out were outright cancelled. It was quite stressful to do all the changes in such a short notice, but in the end, I preserved and mostly stayed at home, while dedicating only two of the afternoons going out. On Monday, I visited Botanic Gardens, and on Friday, Singapore Mobility Gallery.

Exploring Singapore, Episode III

You may think that Singapore is small and has nothing much to see, but given a week, you can still fill every day with activities and things to see. I started exploring Singapore more deeply back in July 2020 (Exploring Singapore) and also in November 2020 (haha, no post yet). I’ve found that every time I think I’m running out of places to see, that’s also when I find something new.

On this episode, I planned each day to be spent on a certain location throughout the day:

  • Monday: Chinatown area
  • Tuesday: River Safari
  • Wednesday: Gardens by the Bay
  • Thursday: Sentosa
  • Friday: Museums (NUS + ArtScience Museum)
