We all know one of the best ways to get local information is fro locals. Wandering around and getting lost are other great options which I love, but these two are different methods to approach.
When I was in Jeju island this summer, I met a group of Singaporean girls who are really into Korean culture. Their last night we sat down and had some beer together. Those girls were extremely shy but once we got close, we share our love of the world like usual.
We ask them about ‘Where to go do what’. Whan an idea! 🙂
They wrote this valuable information on their brand new Teddy bear note pad from Teddy bear Museum in Jeju island. Thanks girls!
Singapore has very mixed reputation. It’s a highly recommended destination from one and soon it is one of the ‘just for a short layover’ place. Every destination has a zigzag review but not much like Singapore. I enjoyed ever a week in Singapore during my backpacking, especially China town and Little India. Those cuisines.. yum!
Oh well, anyhow, let’s see what do the Singaporean ladies have to say.
