Singapore (Side Tripping) Travel Diary

Changi Airport-03 Last September 2014, I went to Singapore for work. We had to join team’s 3 day workshop. I’m excited to go, since it’s been five months since my last travel and it’s been almost a year the last time I went to Singapore and I know this would be my last trip for 2014.

I decided to spend 3 more days for side tripping! Bilang, tapang-tapangan na ko mag-solo. I know, kering-keri ko na rumampa sa Singapore mag-isa. Good thing din, that my friend (colleague) Liberty join me in my adventures in Singapore!

Before heading out to the city. I bought NETS flash Pay Card for SGD10, you can use this card to pay any SG transport, convenient stores, boutiques. You can load this card in any 7-11 stores. You gotta have this card when travelling in Singapore.

NETS flash Pay Card for SGD10


I downloaded SG Transport App. It’s very useful as the app gives you an option on various routes and fare.

I checked-in at Fisher Bed & Breakfast. I booked a bed in ladies dormitory room at Fisher B&B via only for SGD24, with breakfast included. Fisher BnB is located at 127 Tyrwhitt Road , Lavender / Kallang, Singapore. This B&B is accessible, clean and comfortable! It is located just 5 minutes walk away from Lavender Station. They also serve a good breakfast, sandwich, coffee and tea!

And that’s it! I have wonderful time, apparently my last business trip for Syngenta.

Travel while you’re young and able. Don’t worry about the money, just make it work. Experience is far more valuable than money will ever be.
