Singapore just became my new favourite city...
I had a bit of a drama entering Singapore - being the only westerner at the Malaysia-Singapore border I wonder if the officers were just having a bit of fun!
After what should have been a five hour bus ride - that turned into nine hours - I arrived in the city of lights, towers, skyscrapers and absolute cleanliness. People have told me how spick and span the place is but I don't think you really understand how spick and span the place is until you see it for yourself. I think in three days, I could count the amount of single rubbish items I saw on the floor using my fingers and toes!
I thoroughly enjoyed all the little bits of the city - Chinatown, Arab Street, Little India, Haji Lane. The architecture blew my mind, the people were beyond friendly, the prices were insane (but we don't need to talk about that). I even met Sandra Macheroux, a locally based, expat professional photographer, in her Haji Lane gallery, who gave me some top tips about where to see the city from. I haven't finished with Singapore yet, I will definitely be back. Either as a tourist or an expat!
