Singapore!!!

on Feb 22, 2012
Frankly speaking, I don't have good impression for 'Singapore' (continue reading if you're feeling piss off right now!!!) as a lot of my friends complaint about it... But most of them are still working there... I know the main reason for this is because of the conversion rate from 'Singapore Dollar' to 'Ringgit Malaysia'... So no matter how bad the country is, you will still need to tolerate... 

Is been a long time since I last step into 'Singapore' as a tourist... I went there a couple of times last year but it was purely business and the only place that I went was my customer place situated in 'Woodlands' and 'Marina Bay Sands' which was also one of our customer... That's it... Nothing more and nothing less...

We were really excited when we had the opportunity to travel to 'Singapore' and pretend to be a tourist for a day a fortnight ago... Actually we were attending a friend's 'ROM' and in the meantime, we took the opportunity presented at us and decided to go sight seeing the very next day...

After spending a day in 'Singapore', it changed my perception totally!!! It is a beautiful country and the living expenses is way lower compare to 'Kuala Lumpur'!!! (please don't convert the currency... what I'm talking about is earning the same amount of money in both country and try buying something similar... for example, an 'Apple iMac' cost around RM3600++ in 'Malaysia' whereas in 'Singapore', you can get one for around $1600++!!! RM3000 a month can't get you an 'iMac' in 'Malaysia' but $3000 a month can get you at least one and a half 'iMac' in 'Singapore'... see the difference???)...

Don't really have enough time to shop around as we got a flight to catch... Don't want to miss my flight again!!! (will blog about this in my coming blog!!! our first time missing a flight)... Brother-in-law took us to the famous 'Orchard Road' and some other shopping complexes around that area as we need to meet up with some other friends that are currently residing in 'Singapore'... 


The famous durian roof of 'Esplanade'!!!




Inside 'Esplanade'...




Going around 'Singapore' is really easy... You don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure it out as their 'MRT' is really user friendly something like our very own 'LRT'... 


'Orchard Road'!!! Finally have the chance to get up-close and personal with it!!! In my opinion, there's nothing special about this road... But for the ladies, this is a very different story... 


This is so very cool!!! Walking advertisement... I know we have this in 'Malaysia' as well... But the ladies are not as hot as these!!! Very beautiful looking girls (not sure about the guys though)... The way they place the ad is ingenious but I wonder what will happen if there's a strong gust of wind blowing either from the front or back??? Will these ladies be blown away??? I doubt so looking at how skinny there are!!! 


Below are some random pics of the shopping complexes that we have visited... Unfortunately, I can't remember their name... Not even a single one!!!








'H&M' is very cheap in 'Singapore'... All the clothes and pants selling in double digit... Only coats retailing over a hundred dollar... Hopefully 'H&M Malaysia' will price their clothes as low as in 'Singapore'!!! But I really doubt so...

After spending almost a full day in 'Singapore', I'm starting to fall in love with it!!! I guess my friends in 'Singapore' will agree with me on this... Exchange rate is only one of the reason and there are a lot of  other good reasons for them to be staying there (cheap food/electronics/clothing and etc)!!! But good times tend to pass really fast and is time for us to come back to reality and start working my ass off again!!!
