Singapore Slinging

Apologies for the brief blogging hiatus... things were absolutely crazy both at work and in life in the days leading up to Christmas. Before I knew it, it was time to hop on a plane to Singapore, which has always been one of my favourite places to visit in Southeast Asia. My parents recently moved there so I had an "excuse" to go again!

Although most of my time was spent doing family things, I managed to take in a few sights, including the Marina Bay area, Chinatown, and Sentosa Island.


I also enjoyed eating some favourite local foods. Desserts in this region are especially yummy. Pictured below: mango sago, iced kachang, and cendol.


Kuala Lumpur is only a 40 minute plane ride away from Singapore, so I was able to spend a few days there as well. I finally got to see the Petronas Towers in real life since the last time I was in KL I wasn't able to.


Anyway, that was a very short but much-needed break. Now to get over my jetlag and back into the routine of things here in Vancouver. I hope you all had a great holiday season and a happy new year!

  23. @maddy Yeah, I felt bad for totally disappearing without an explanation! Definitely good to be back to blogging :)

    @Kerri They are sooo cool at night because they're all lit up. I wish we had buildings like that here.

    @MissA* Ah, have so much fun!!

    @Jen I hope you get to visit soon! Singapore is one of the few cities in Asia I could probably live in since it's quite modern and things are very accessible. The only thing that takes some getting used to is the heat... it is sooooo hot always.

  30. I think the best place to go if you want to hang out and destress is Singapore. Huh? busy street, great night life, amazing people and quite a liberation of everything.
