Classic story– I chatted with a friend asking if he will adopt me if I happen to visit Singapore. He only asked that he be informed ahead so he can file for an appropriate notice for leave. After series of exchanges, I replied with a “booking confirmed” message, to his shock, and our excitement.

I fell in love with Singapore. It was my kind of environment.

Clean, small (removes the intimidation of a big city), commuter-friendly, modern, progressive, beautiful. I felt at home. At first visit, I was able to commute by myself back to our accommodation. How amazing was that for a geographically-challenged woman like I. It was entertaining and it lived up to my vacation expectations.

Plus they have Ikea.
