Honestly, it was both fun and sad. I realized that I didn't have anyone to celebrate with on my birthday which I spent on the plane. So I would have to do better than that this year.
My travel to Singapore was a food trip above all. I also made my own itinerary based on available maps and tourist spot information online.
On my next two days, I learned how to use the MRT which turned out to be a lot of fun. Their light rail system is easy to understand, efficient and very near my hostel in Chinatown.
Speaking of hostel, I stayed in Wink Hostel in Mosque St., Chinatown. The reason I stayed in a hostel was, first, I thought I don't really want to spend more for a hotel room which I would barely use. Great thing was that Wink Hostel turned out to be a great place. It was very clean, accessible from MRT and hip. Each guest has a smart card which gives you exclusive access to your room and to your locker. The hostel also has good bathroom and dining facilities. Bed linen are of excellent quality, good-smelling and very white. The place exudes a cool, intellectual vibe. I most definitely recommend this to people who ask me for recommendations.
Best of all, traveling by plane to SG meant I will be going to Changi airport, which is a travel bucket list item in itself. Changi is a terrific airport.
