Sentosa Island

Located South of Singapore it’s accesible by several transportations, from the laziest ones who will arrive by taxi (surchase apply) to the more honest ecotourists that will cross the bridge on foot (paying 1 SG$).

We decided to opt for the monorail (mother bunny is lazy by nature) that will cost you 3 dollars return trip.

For those of you interested in Sentosa check here

From my point of view is like Singapores back door to family fun and limited risk adventure for the youngters that populate zouks and singaporean bridges (with Martel and Johnny Walker Blue label bottles).

Several five star beach resorts, exclusive beach clubs (where you pay for a beer what you earn in a week working at your homeland), nice white sand and nice palm tree.

Actually the four or five beaches are very nice, except for the poluted water infected with jelly fish and the stupid small space where – They let you swin- No matter if you are Mr. Phelps you can only swim in a small designated space.

But what about the “charm” of sharing your swim with large container carriers and Roro ships.

Ever dreamed about a nice plamtree beach with some bikini girls at your sight just in front of a crude refinery…

This is your place and if you need to waste more adrenaline pay a visit to Universal Studios Sentosa or try to surf in a pool, or sky dive in a new attraction they opened this year (Sky-something ).

Singapore’s zoo

One of the best of the world according to them and independent travel guides. It features a large selection of Asian animals as well as some from remote places (like the polar bear).

what it makes it different is the way in wich animals are displayed, with large spaces where they can “live” in conditions very similar to the ones they find in their habitats.

There are no cages and they are separated from visitors by ditches and other elements.

You can visit it during the day or by night (night zoo devoted to night living animals).

After visiting the day one last year and night zoo this year i would recommend without any doubt the first one.

And the best of all is that the price is fair, cheaper than Barcelona’s that is a shame for all the zoos of the world.



Even more Singapore

From our place, located in Havelock Rd, to Singapore’s center it takes half an hour to arrive walking riverside. A nice walk if you are on foot but dangerous if you ride a bike. Get into an underpass and you will be fined 1000 SG$ (anyways all the people were riding under, so i can imagine the measure is not very effective).

All the restaurants on the river margins are there to quit some weight in the pockets of tourist and expatriates who have the money and drink hard during the night. So during day light they offer you nice set menues for as least as 15 SG$.

No people, no scams, just take profit of this and go there for lunch and avoid there for dinner.

If you need some music and want to see some impossible heels and short skirts go to Zouk.



More Singapore

Our friends has asked me for more pictures of Singapore and thus I have selected a bunch of them that help to illustrate a little what can you expect from this city.

A tennis court in a Hotel hanging at 10th level is not something unusual, like a Chinook helicopter carrying a giant flag in augoust (when they celebrate their national day). Las time we watched the F15 fighters show and it was really impressive how they broke the sound barrier in between the center’s skyscrapers.

Apart from that do not miss the margins of Singapore river where all the fancy restaurants and bars are. Beware of tourist traps and scams.

And if you want some “Ibiza” like party go to Zouks and enjoy some music, after sharing some Jagesmaister and Martell cognag with some youngter on the street…

Yes. On the street, forget all that stupid things they told about chewing gum, throwing papers, and blah, blah. In singapore people fart, spit, throw litter, urinate and drink hard on the street (in front of the police).



We are (actaully we have been now) in Singapure

No free wifi, no Hotel wifi… Imagine that you are paying for a Ferrari or a Lambo and they ask you extra money for the wheel or the audio equipment.

This is singapore, you pay 300-400 euros a night and no free wifi, so this time I decided to go to another place.

I was sure we will not have wifi or Internet acces but the Hotel is much cheaper and it lies right on the singapore river, in the same block that the most famous disco (Zouks).

Anyways right now let me share some pictures of me and Tometaro Jr. with you.

I am still not recovered from my last trip to Singapore via an extended stop in Milano and I am again in the move.

This time Singapore will be my headquarter to explore Malaca and all the West coast.
