Singapore



Our first visit to Singapore was last January 2011 when we had our 4days SG-KL vacation, and this was the first country I visited outside Philippines, and I must say I felt comfortable in this place. A lot of things are very different in this country compared to ours. The roads are very clean, people are disciplined in crossing the roads, buses are required to pick up and drop off passengers at bus stops only, there are designated smoking areas, and I can go on with the list overnight. Let’s just say I felt some level of security here that now I am currently living here as an OFW (Overseas Filipino Worker) turning this place as my second home.

Singapore is a country in a small island in South-East Asia. This place has a diverse environment where you will see different races from all over the world-locals, Filipinos, Malay, Indians, etc.

Singapore is also a very traveller-friendly country. Transportation is convenient and organized, and safety is not a question here.

The country has 4 airports, Terminals 1-3 (T1), (T2), (T3) and the Budget Terminal. T1 to T3 are all connected via monorail, and there is a shuttle bus from T2 to Budget terminal and vice versa. All modes are free of charge.

Upon arrival in Singapore, you can purchase an ez-link card. This card is a stored value card used by the commuters in MRT, LRT and busses. You can purchase the card in any ticket offices in train stations for 12SGD , where you can used 7SGD and the remaining 5SGD is non-refundable. 
Here is the train map of Singapore:
Do not forget to tap your ez-link card when your riding and alighting the bus. If it is your first time in the country, do not forget that if you ride a bus ALWAYS enter in the front door, the one near the bus driver. When alighting, you can used either the 2 doors.

You can use google maps or gothere.sg for suggestions on how to get to the places you want to visit. Both sites will suggest on what train station you will ride and alight or what bus number are you going to take and where. I personally used gothere.sg.

I will update as soon as I can on the places you can visit in Singapore.
