    MacRitchie Reservoir

    October 11 in Singapore ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Nachdem ich mal wieder sehr schwer aus dem Bett gekommen bin, ich glaube erst 11.30 🤦‍♀️ (blöder Jetlag) hab ich dann doch noch geschafft mich auf zu machen. Mit den öffentlichen Bus ging es für 1,90 S$ zum Park, wo mich gleich ein paar Äffchen begrüßten. Die warteten nur auf einen unbeobachteten Moment um von den Touris etwas Essen zu klauen🤣 von mir haben sie nichts bekommen ☝️

    Natürlich war es viel zu heiß um groß wandern zu gehen, dass hab ich so nicht bedacht 🤔 drum ist es nur eine kleine Runde geworden. (Trotzdem insgesamt über 3 h im Park gewesen 🤣) Aber ich war glücklich ein paar Äffchen und die ersten Warane gesehen zu haben 😊

    Happy Birthday / Gardens by the bay

    March 4, 2018 in Singapore ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    Cemils 31ten Geburstag haben wir in einem kleinen Cafe "gefeiert" - mit einem tollen Frühstück, leckeren Kuchen und Wunderkerzen. 😄🎉

    Den Rest des Tages haben wir bei den Gärten von "Gardens by the bay" verbracht. 🌸

    Einen Indoor-Wasserfall, viele Pflanzen und eine riesige Parkanlage mit den "Super trees" gibt es hier zu bestaunen. 😍

    Natürliche Wasserfälle in der Natur mögen wir zwar viel lieber - aber es hat uns hier trotzdem sehr gut gefallen! 😊

    Hello Singapore ☀️

    March 2, 2018 in Singapore ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Singapur ist super modern, sauber und einfach perfekt strukturiert - manchmal kommt man sich vor wie in der Zukunft. 😁

    Hier herrscht eine sehr hohe Sicherheit durch unzählige Kameras an vielen Ecken der Stadt - die Meinungen hierzu gehen sehr auseinander. Es herrscht zwar kaum Kriminalität und man fühlt sich sicher aber gleichzeitig auch sehr überwacht ... 🤔

    In den "Hawker Center" kann man sich durch die vielen internationalen Küchen schlemmen - auch die Einheimischen trifft man dort, da es (im Gegensatz zu den Restaurants) super preiswert (und natürlich lecker 😋) ist! 👍

    Mit der U-Bahn "MRT" kommt man ganz einfach von A nach B - diese haben wir täglich genutzt.🚅

    In Singapur treffen viele verschiedene Kulturen aufeinander: Indien, China, Malaysia und viele weitere - einfach Multi Kulti.🌍

    Botanischer Garten / Unser letzter Tag

    March 5, 2018 in Singapore ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    An unserem letzten Tag in Singapur haben wir noch den botanischen Garten besucht - dieser ist sehr weitläufig und total idyllisch. 🌸🥀🌿

    4 Nächte haben wir ingesamt in Singapur verbracht und es war echt toll - die Stadt hat so viel zu bieten und ist einfach perfekt! 💗

    Die Preise für die Unterkünfte und Restaurants sind zwar sehr teuer aber man kann auch ziemlich günstig ein paar Tage verbringen.
    Für die Unterkunft via AirBnb haben wir nur 25,00€ pro Nacht bezahlt und essen kann man sehr günstig für 2,00-5,00€ in den Foodcentern. 🤗

    Die MRT ist auch sehr günstig und die Eintrittspreise sind absolut in Ordnung (teilweise auch umsonst).👍

    Simgapur ist aufjeden Fall ein Besuch wert! 😍

    Mit Intrepid habe ich alleine und auch Heidi und ich gemeinsam über die Jahre sicherdeutlich mehr als 20 Fernreisen gemacht. Unser allererster Trip mit Intrepid war 2004 nach Kenia und Tanzania. Danach haben wir oder ich bis heute fast jedes Jahr 1-2 Reisen mit diesem englischsprachigen Veranstalter gemacht. Anfangs habe ich die Touren direkt in England gebucht, später auch über deutsche Reiebüros und bevorzugt über Emil Dernetz in Bremerhaven.

    Dieser Trip im Dezember 2011 bis Januar 2012 startete in Singapure mit einer Gruppe und meinem Lieblings Tourgyde “JACK” und ging über Malaysia nach Bankgok. Dort habe ich die Gruppe gewechselt und bin noch in den Norden von Thailand gereist. Dann bin ich nach Sri Lanka gefolgen und habe dort noch eine schöne Zeit verbracht. In Malaysia habe ich mir beim Fußballspielen mit einheimischen Jungs den Unterarm gebrochen. Der Arm wurde dann in einem hochmodernen Malayischen Krankenhaus für kleines Geld gegipst.

    Auszug aus den tripnotes von Intrepid: From the steamy streets of Singapore to the pulsating tourist mecca of Bangkok, this adventure will see your tastebuds tingle on Singaporean laksa, heart soar while scaling Kuala Lumpur's tallest tower, spirit warmed by a cup of Cameron Highland's tea and body challenged while hiking, climbing and tubing around Khao Sok National Park. From bustling big cities to isolated islands, everything in between Singapore and Bangkok is exciting and exhilarating, combining ancient tradition and new-age impulses into one unforgettable journey.

    Singapore

    March 5, 2015 in Singapore ⋅ ⛅ 86 °F

    We had quite the surprise on our trip to Singapore. Ali's birthday was the day we arrived and we had already made plans to visit a friend, Mark who agreed to take us around Singapore and out to eat on Ali's birthday night. He arrived and we were excited to see him and also excited to turn the decision making over to him because we were exhausted from figuring out the last few big cities.
    He took us to a great restaurant named Jumbo's for their special Chili and Black Pepper Crabs. The surprise of the evening turned out to be when his parents Zip and Phyllis showed up from Woodstock to surprise Ali. We had a great and emotional dinner and a great next day with Mark showing us all the sights of Singapore. Zip and Phyllis had been keeping their trip a secret even to point of emailing Ali and telling her how bad the weather was in Woodstock all the while they were vacationing in Singapore, Bali and Bangkok. It made the trip very special for everyone.
    Singapore is a great city. It was probably the cleanest, most efficient city we have ever seen. No traffic, even during rush hour, easy public transit. Cheap taxies. What more could you want. :-) It did feel a little sterile though. Kind of like a really big Disney World with 7 million employees? We could definitely live here although traveling outside the actually city would be needed to realize not everyone has it this nice.

    Singapore

    March 18, 2014 in Singapore ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    We arrived at 7.30am. The weather was already hot and humid at 28C and destined to rise to 31C. We intended to tour the city independently and four of us headed immediately to Raffles Hotel. We were not allowed to enter the reception area but a very stylishly dressed doorman directed us to the public areas. What struck me was the way the tropical trees and plants had been allowed to flourish in all the courtyards and open spaces, which gave the appearance of a hotel surrounded by forest. We spent some time wandering around and just enjoying the peace. We then walked to 'Little India', where the streets were narrow and the houses brightly painted. We then took the metro to Orchard Road, the preeminent shopping area, where the road and pavements were bordered by more tropical plants and greenery. Very pleasant.We took the metro again, this time to the harbour to view the hotel, on the roof of which was constructed a very long boat. We then strolled back to the ship for afternoon tea and air conditioning! There is so much to see in Singapore but we did not have enough time.Read more

    Country Number 7 - Singapore!

    July 6, 2018 in Singapore ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    I think we are pretty good at having a smooth and efficient journey for flights now. Our packing is down to the tee we know exactly what items should go in the bag and what items need to be worn to ensure the bag is at 7kg. The alarm went off at 4:15am, the Grab was booked at 4:30am and we left by 4:45am. Checkin and security was smooth and easy and we sat in the lounge eating our weird chocolate bread loaf that we bought the day before. It was literally chocolate bread... We thought it would be muffin like but definitely wasn't. When we boarded the flight it was absolutely freezing. The trip was so cold the whole way, I was so glad to arrive and get into some heat! I'm sure I'll regret saying that.

    Thankfully we don't need to worry about accomodation here as the lovely Amber has let us stay in her lovely apartment. And it was truly lovely. Its on the 17th floor, the bathroom isn't a wet room so I don't have to always get wet feet when I want to pee, the toilet seat isn't constantly wet from the shower, I can sit on a sofa, she has a washing machine so I can do my own washing whenever I want and she has a scale so we can finally weigh ourselves. We have both lost about 7kg! I don't remember ever being this weight, super chuffed and not even had to try!

    After we put on our washing and faffed a bit we went for our afternoon nap. We should probably start putting alarms on... We woke up at 4pm! Apart from a bit of bread we hadn't really eaten but now we were running late to see Will's ex colleagues in the Singapore office! After a quick shower and putting out the washing we jumped on the MRT and headed to his office. Honestly it was a really surreal feeling, almost as if we had never gone travelling! It was so lovely to see Wing again after so many years and Pierre was there too! I probably should have dressed a bit nicer wups... They took us to a super cool rooftop bar which looked out on to Marina Bay Sands. The views were amazing and oh my god we had wine. Wine for the first time in months!! In fact we haven't had alcohol for nearly a month. We all sat and chatted and it was just perfect. The generosity of everyone at Trading Screen is just unbelievable. Here we are 2 people who have little money, one who is now an excolleague and they didn't let us buy anything at all the whole night! Wing even bought our dinner at Mc Donald's! He and Chee Seng insisted we had to try Durian Ice cream. I must admit this was the biggest mistake of the day. For the rest of the evening I smelt of durian, I burped durian, I hiccuped durian - it was god awful!

    We then went to watch the match with Chee Seng and it was interesting to hear more about Singapores history and political state. Singapore is a really interesting country. From an outsiders point of view it seems so progressive, advanced in use of technology and education but actually when you get to know more about its history and the people rights of freedom of speech its a very different story. The land and shape of Singapore is very much man made and is still growing at a rate of 30% a year. Crime rate is possibly the lowest in the world but that is also because the severity of the consequences are so high. The same governmental party have been in power for its 50 years of independence existence. Protesters are seen as radicalists and illegal without the correct procedures and authorisation, which is generally difficult to get. Any party gathering of more than 3 people is supposed to have the correct legal paperwork otherwise this is illegal and people can be jailed for the crime. In the background it seems Singaporeans have a very old style cultural political system.

    After many drinks we decided to call it a night, nipped to the Newton Hawker centre for some fried rice and jumped straight into bed. We've not had a 2am late night in a long time... I don't think it's going to be an early start!
