It's another year which means another round of the annual Orchard Road Christmas Light Up.

Malls around Orchard Road will also join in the fun by having their own Christmas lights, decorations and Christmas trees. In this article, I'll be showing you around this year's edition of the Christmas light ups along with the interesting Christmas decorations found in and around Orchard Road's shopping malls.

10 Things I Love About My Trip To Pulau Ubin

Once in a while, I enjoy going out of urban Singapore and get in touch with nature and the quieter parts of Singapore. Sometimes, I head to the parks, sometimes I head to the beaches and sometimes, I head to Singapore's 'off-the-beaten' paths. Back in March 2014, me and a group of friends decided to take things to a higher level by heading to Pulau Ubin, a Singapore island which consists of Singapore's last kampongs (or villages) and has a rustic charm to it which represents how Singapore looks like back in the old days. In this article, I want to share with you 10 things I love about my trip to Pulau Ubin and hopefully, I can convince you to go to Pulau Ubin for a short getaway.

An Experiment: SMRT Bus Road Trip

I've always used public transport to get from one place to another and despite disruptions that happen from time to time, I find Singapore's public transport system successfully gets the job done for most of us. The public transport system (Bus and MRT) are mainly operated by two operators, SBS Transit (established in 1973 as the Singapore Bus Service) and SMRT (established in 1982 as Trans Island Bus Service or TIBS). As SBS Transit bus services are commonly seen in Singapore compared to SMRT bus services like in my estate, I wanted to challenge myself by travelling around the Singapore city using just SMRT buses and I call it the SMRT Bus Road Trip. Why? Because it's something that I've always wanted to do. Here's my experience of this so-called 'experiment'.

Unforgettable Moments at the Singapore Garden Festival 2014

Recently, I scored a free ticket to the Singapore Garden Festival that was held at Gardens By The Bay on the 16th of August. It's an annual show that showcases all kinds of beautiful floral and botany displays. Usually, it's held at the nearby Suntec Convention Centre but this year, they moved to the Gardens By The Bay's Flower Dome conservatory which suits the nature of the event. Don't worry if you missed the event as I have tons of photos and I'll share my experience of the Singapore Garden Festival right here. Scroll down to find out more.
