Flashbacks: SINGAPORE – Part 1

My time in Singapore was quite brief and I only spent a total of 1 full day there. We got there late Wednesday evening, but we still managed to walk over to the Newton Food Centre.

The later it is the more lively these hawker centers become. Hawker centers are just very casual outdoor food courts with all sorts of local foods where people gather late at night to eat.

A few of our eats, served in in some fine china plastic plates. As classy as outdoor eating gets 😉


Fresh Coconut Juice

Fried oysters

Stir-fried Noodles

The next day we met up with my aunt and uncle for lunch at another food plaza. I don’t think I’ve been any place with more food centers and food courts than Singapore. It’s seriously food galore here.


Coconut Cake

After lunch we went to look around Sands Resort and Casino. It was massive and there’s even a sky deck on the roof (that ship-shaped looking thing at the very top) where you can swim and view the city.

Connected to the hotel is a large mall with high-end shops, a movie theater, museum, and more. I’m pretty sure this hotel is larger than some cities. It’s so big I could spend a couple days here without ever having to set foot outside.

A handful of celebrity chefs have also opened their restaurants here.

Wolfgang Puck’s Cut

Daniel Boulud’s Bistro Moderne

Mario Batali’s Mozza

After browsing the mall we headed over to the art science museum where they were featuring a Dali exhibit this month. My sister, the art-lover, loved it!

After the museum we just headed to dinner and called it a day.

I’ll be back tomorrow with part two of my singapore flashbacks, where I visited one of the many attractions at the Singapore airport that I had mentioned reading about on my way to the Maldives.

Have a lovely Saturday! 🙂

  2. Singapore sounds like an amazing city with so much to offer! I’d love to visit one day… if for nothing else than so I could drink coconut water straight from a coconut and satisfy my secret shoe obsession by seeing a giant shoe 😉 And I do remember the airport being fantastic… can’t wait to hear more about it!

    Singapore looks amazing! Everytime I see one of those fresh young coconuts, I am so sad that they never made it to the Czech Republic 🙂
