Singapore Trip Photos and Travelogue


Hello IMBB Cuties.

Last month, my hubby, 2 kids and I went on a trip to Singapore. (The entire trip was a gift to us from very close relatives, on the occasion of our upcoming Silver Wedding Anniversary.) We all had a really great time there, and I would like to share some info and loads of photos of this awesome city. (All these photos have been taken on my son’s camera).

Singapore is a city that really stole my heart. I feel as if I’ve left a bit of myself there. Apart from being the safest city in the world – there is zero crime rate there – it is also spectacular in its modernity, cleanliness, discipline and above all – the people are extremely polite, friendly and helpful. I always used to get sweet smiles from strangers, and whenever we bought anything, they would wish us goodbye saying “Thank you, have a great day”.

We flew there by Singapore Airlines. Prices per ticket vary a lot, depending on how much in advance you book and buy your tickets. A return ticket from Kolkata costs Rs. 23,500/-, however you can get cheaper tickets for even about Rs. 16,000 on Bangladesh Biman and Rs. 18,000 on Air India Express. The flight from Kolkata to Singapore took 3 hours 45 minutes. We found the in-flight service very warm and friendly, the seats were spacious and comfortable with a foot rest too, and really good choice of food – either Continental or Indian. Changi airport is one of the best, if not THE best airport in the world.

We stayed 14 days in Singapore, with a 4-day trip out of Singapore in between (Part 2 and Part 3 coming up soon!!).

For just one night, we stayed here:


This cost Singapore Dollars 206 including VAT, for a family room for one night, which included a wholesome, decent breakfast. YMCA is bang in the heart of the city, located at One Orchard Road.

The rest of the time we were in Singapore, we stayed in a friend’s apartment, vacant; but fully furnished, at a luxurious condominium directly overlooking the Singapore harbor.

For getting around in Singapore, we used the MRT (Mass Rapid Transit) = trains, quite a lot of times when we had long distances to cover, and rest of the time, we travelled around in taxis. English is the first language there, and we found most of the taxi drivers really friendly and talkative, and, of course, honest to the core.

Regarding our meals, hubby and I usually ate at the food courts in the various malls we visited and for dinner we were usually back in the apartment, and ordered home delivery from some nearby take-away joints. We also did a bit of grocery shopping daily from a nearby store for our breakfast, tea, coffee, yoghurt, etc. at the apartment.

Near the MacDonald’s outlet situated at the basement of Robinson’s Centre Point on Orchard Road, there is a tiny cake and sandwich place called “Toast Box” and there I had the best tea ever in my entire life for Singapore $ 1.80 per cup. I ended up having 4 cups!!

We let the kids go around themselves a lot and they did a real whole lot of sight-seeing and here are some photos :

      1. Hi Taps, yes I’m an Avon rep. I haven’t tried the face pearls myself, but few people who have them, really like them a lot. I’m thinking of getting them for myself this month, let’s see. I think they have quite a frosty / shimmer effect, coz I have seen someone wearing it on her face.
