Falling in Love With Singapore

Do any of you have a place that you've never visited, but you know you're meant to be there?!

Well, for me, it was always Singapore.

My aunt was born in Malaysia, and she and my uncle lived in Singapore for almost 20 years! My grammy always told me stories of traveling there for the wedding or just to visit and it sounded magical!
In college, I inexplicably became friends with a ton of incredible, insane, amazing Singaporean girls and I finally had a chance to visit them in their home town!
Myself and two other friends stayed in a gorgeous AirBnB (pictured above) with a British family (and their dog!) and spent four days there eating, exploring, and discovering what humidity truly is.

Some places you should definitely check out:

1. Chinatown - There are tons of shops and eateries all around this area and the architecture is really cool!
Here you can find cafes that serve drinks the old fashioned way - in a REALLY thick cup so the liquid never cools. (Old men often pour the drink into the saucer and drink from that rather than drink the super hot coffee) Also try out a Singaporean specialty which is half tea, half coffee!
2. ALL THE FOOD COURTS
Singapore is famous for their food courts, which are just huge open-air markets with a ton of stalls offering every kind of food you can imagine. Most are open 24 hours and my friends and I were lucky to have stayed near one of the most famous ones - Newton Food Centre!
Carrot cake is actually a radish and soy sauce dish that is INCREDIBLE.
BBQ Stingray is delicious and you MUST try it.
Banana prata is like the best banana pancake you will ever have in your entire life.
Ice Kachang is a dessert, yes there is corn and beans in it ;D

Check out all the colorful food below:

You should also really take advantage of the heat and use it as an excuse to eat ice cream with every meal...cause I sure as hell did!

3. Orchard Eats

Other foods you should try are rainbow dim sum near Orchard station and steam boat which is similar to shabu shabu!

4. The Flyer
My friends were nice enough to get us discounts for the Singapore Flyer which was awesome!
I wouldn't recommend paying full fare for it unless you really like ferris wheels, but it gave us an incredible view of the city!

5. And of course definitely visit the Gardens By The Bay!

It was really incredible and you could walk through the Marina Bay hotel (where we took a much needed iced coffee break)

Singapore is definitely a foodies paradise and even though I've never experienced humidity like that (even in Hong Kong!) it was worth every second!

How House Swapping Works?
House Swap is often not the first thing that comes to mind when someone thinks about going on vacation. But, If you're exploring vacation packages to popular tourist destinations such as New York and Paris that could cost you thousands of dollars for a hotel room or at least hundreds to book on Airbnb, it's time to check out cheaper alternatives. What if we say, your stay can be free? Yes, it's true with a house swap. It is a practice in which two parties agree to swap their accommodation without any cash exchange. Now, here how House Swapping works, and how to get started: - Step 1: Understand home swapping Today, there are so many platforms where you can sign up, create your house listing, find and swap homes across the globe. You can peruse listings of hundreds of home swappers worldwide. You can swap in one of the two ways: a direct, two-way exchange where you can swap your house for someone else’s. The other way being the one-way swap, where you live in someone's home, while your house is empty. Since no money exchanges, you can plan long vacations, even for months, knowing that your accommodation costs won't sky-rocket with each passing day. Step 2: List your home for the swap. Don't think you’re not eligible for a home swap if your house is not in a tourist hotspot or a picture-postcard chateau. People these days are exploring all kinds of destinations to escape the crowd and finding peacetime with family. Also, it is a no-brainer to highlight all the key points that make your house special, whether it’s the private swimming in the backyard, nearby hiking trails, lovely neighborhood, or proximity to public transportation. Be sure to upload pictures of your house, highlighting how spacious and comfortable it is compared to hotels. Step 3: Have a Clear Chat Once you come across someone ready for a vacation home swap with you, it is imperative to have a chat, either over the home swapping messenger or via Skype/ FaceTime. You can also ask them to provide a video tour of their house and ask all the questions that you might have. This will help you to ease all the anxieties with regards to exchanging each other's abodes. Step 4: Tell the neighbors Once the deal is locked, let the family next door know about your travel plans, so that they're not surprised seeing another family set foot in your house. This will help you keep a tab on your swapper and leave your fellow swapper with a local to count on for any need. Step 5: Be Smart with your Valuables Have a rare selection of porcelain dolls? First-edition of novels? Or expensive crockery? Don't hesitate to keep them in secure spots. Lastly, give them a warm welcome, just like you do if your sister or a close friend comes to visit your house. So, lay in supplies for your home swapper.
(no title)
House exchange is an excellent way to enjoy family holidays on a limited budget. The cost of Accommodations is usually the most significant chunk of any vacation spending. So, the cutting costs on this considerable expense can unlock doors of possibilities.  The potential savings allow you to spend more money on sightseeing, food, entertainment, and shopping at a vacation destination. But, before you finish your home exchange deal, it is imperative to know the optimum way to communicate with your exchange partner. Clear All Your Doubts & Queries Right Away Once you’ve received a query or someone has replied to your request, the next step is to talk to your potential home exchange partner. It’s best to clear all your questions and eliminate all doubt before you go ahead with the swapping deal. Inquire about the amenities in the house, such as the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, the configurations of beds, Internet connectivity, LED Screen, patio garden, or pool. If you’re traveling with kids, make sure you talk about the things to do and see in the proximity that is kid-friendly.  When asking queries have realistic expectations. Don’t expect their house to be as perfect as your home, and you may not have all the facilities. Don’t feel timid about asking any type of questions, like how are the neighbors, where are the most convenient dry cleaner, etc. What’s important is to be open and transparent with our swapper. Exchange Options In the end, if you don’t want to arrange a direct exchange meaning you live in someone else’s residency, while they live in yours. You can opt for an indirect exchange, whereby you use their property even if they don’t use your property. Agree on the Exchange Dates During the initial discussions with your home partner, it’s critical to agree on the travel dates. You don’t want to find yourself in a situation when you’ve arrived at their place after a 7-hour flight, only to find that someone else is still at the property. Also, be as flexible as possible with your dates. If you are getting a great exchange at a location you always wanted to visit, flexibility always helps. Converse on the Platform It is of paramount importance to ensure that all the discussion and decisions must be kept on the home exchange platform itself. This way, you can stay clear of all potential hiccups or confusion along the way and can be managed by the customer services team of the exchange site. A reliable exchange verifies the property of swapper and their details to ensure a smooth, hassle-free experience. Layout the Swapping Deal Details Be clear and concise with your home exchange partner with regards to exactly what is included in the exchange. This might include such mundane actions as to what to do with the dirty towels & linen once you leave their place after a vacation; this is to avoid last-minute swapping mishaps. Wrapping up Finally do sufficient research to zero in on a trustworthy home exchange company to achieve complete peace of mind that everything is taken care of.

Singapore Juice Bar Successfully Trolls Google.
So Google is pretty neat. I mean, it's safe to say it's changed the world and how we live in it. If we have a question about virtually anything, we go to Google. When we forget a phone number, want to listen to our favorite song, or find more information about the presidential candidates, we've got it. We've also got its apps, most famously Google Maps. Without it, I would probably be forever lost. With it, I can Google Earth my childhood home to make sure it still exists. Google Maps is super stalkery in just about the best way possible, and no one has caught onto this better than Singapore-based juice bar, Daily Juice. So, if you pull up Daily Juice on Google Map's street view, at first, it's a little unassuming. So you zoom in closer, and then you're like, wait - is that Barney?! Barney then invites you inside to meet his friends. (Yes, Google Maps lets you go inside. Technology is crazy, kids.) You've got Yoda serving up some juice to a Stormtrooper while their friend, Mr. Gingerbread Man, looks on. And then he goes to join Mr. Gator, Homer Simpson, Bugs Bunny, Darth Maul, and Iron Man, who is up to some curious PDA with the aforementioned Barney. So next time you're hanging out with a friend and feeling like you need a good conversation starter, have them look up Daily Juice in Singapore and wait. You'll both probably get a good laugh out of it. Have you guys seen any other examples of people messing with Google's street view feature? Would seeing a company do this make you want to go there even more?

Travel Singapore: 6 Dishes You Have to Try!
I just got back from Singapore which was basically just me eating everything in sight for 4 days straight. Here are 6 things I had a loved, but keep in mind there are a billion other things you have to try there as well! (Not listed: chili craaaaaaaaaaab!!!!!!) Pictured above: Teh O Limau (black tea with lime!) 1. Murtabak Murtabak is a super tasty dish from the Middle East that I could probably eat every day. You can get nearly any filling you want (we chose one Chicken and one sardine) and it will be wrapped up in a delicious bread similar to na'an or paratha. We got curry to dip it in and it tasted fantastic! 2. Fish Ball Soup For the unadventurous or those who avoid spice, this fish ball soup is perfect. If you find that traveling gave you an upset stomach, this simple broth with some onion, noodles, and a few balls made from fish will have you feeling better in no time. Serious comfort food. 3. Carrot Cake Carrot cake is my favorite thing on this earth. Rather than carrots, it is made using radish that has been pounded into a soft almost noodle. Think gnocchi, but with radish! It's then fried up with egg and chilis, then (if you get black carrot cake) tossed around in some soy sauce. It's DELICIOUS. 4. BBQ Sting Ray The dish to the left is bbq string ray, the first thing I ever ate in Singapore. Its a fishy taste covered in a really awesome chili sauce. Once I got the fact that it was sting ray out of my mind, it tasted just like any other fish I love eating! 5. Popiah See that egg roll looking thing? That's popiah. At first I expected something like the Filipino dish lumpia, but it is so much sweeter than that. These spring rolls are common in Singapore, Taiwan, and Malaysia and are filled with fresh veggies. You can get them spicier, but they'll always have a distinctly sweet taste to it. 6. Kaya Toast (with Teh O) Made from a mixture of coconut and egg (which I just found out last week, after years of eating kaya...) Kaya jam is one of the yummiest things you can spread on toast. Traditional kaya toast has kaya and a few thick slices of butter sandwiched between two freshly toasted slices of bread. Usually its also served with soft boiled eggs which you can add soy sauce to. Get your kaya toast with some kopi or teh o (black coffee or black tea) to start your day right! I also tried Salted Egg Yolk Croissant, since salted egg yolk ANYTHING is a huge deal in Singapore right now. And to be honest, I really didn't like it. It tasted like what happens when you make icing and add too much powdered sugar. It was really dry and didn't even taste like salt or egg at all. Maybe it's not supposed to and I'm missing the point, but I wasn't a fan :/ Have you ever had Singaporean food? What's your favorite?!
