Singapore: Merlion

Some say that “Singapore is a fine city”. For the ones that love shopping, it’s a fine city whereas for a bit more difficult bunch, it’s “the city of fines”. There is no place that doesn’t tell you not to spit or smoke, not transport durians, not to cross on the red light or not to drink water in the bus as you’ll get fines with way too many zeros.

    Traveling with friends? How about Amsterdam

    After countless nights of debating, accompanied by what some might consider straight arguing, my three lovely roommates and I were finally able to come to a concrete decision on traveling to Amsterdam! Why Amsterdam? Well why not! What can possibly be better than spending a week in a city rich with history yet overwhelmingly diverse […]
