How to ruin a day out in Singapore?

The best way to ruin a day out in Singapore is to live in Malaysia, drive in to Singapore, and then try to get back in to Malaysia… The problem is immigration and customs. I have nothing against immigration and customs, but the immigration and customs on the Malaysia/Singapore boarder is crazily unpredictable. Some days […]

Southern Most Point Of Continental Asia – Palawan Island, Singapore

On Sentosa Island, Singapore, near the beach there is a place that is claimed to be the ‘The Southern Most Point Of Continental Asia’ – well, sorry, it isn’t. The most southerly point of mainland Asia is in Malaysia, and the claim for this point as being most southerly point of “Continental Asia” is just […]

Beach in Singapore – Sentosa Island

I found a beach (of sorts) in Singapore on Sentosa Island… Well, I say beach, but it is man-made, and it has been produced using what I call ‘sharp’ or ‘builders’ sand, that is, it literally is ‘sharp’ as it hurts the feet when you walk on it. Sentosa Island is located on the southern […]

Haw Par Villa, 262 Pasir Panjang Rd, Singapore – free entry

Now Haw Par Villa (虎豹别墅) – 262 Pasir Panjang Rd, Singapore – is, well, weird. I have never seen anything like it, and I may not want to see anything like it ever again! It is one of those places that leaves you thinking “Why?” and “How much did that cost to build?”. Haw Par […]

Restaurant Star Chef Kitchen, Gelang Patah, Johor, Malaysia

Restaurant Star Chef Kitchen was an interesting little find as I had driven past it numerous times and it had never occurred to me to stop until this evening. The place is one of those typical corner Chinese restaurants that you tend to find in Malaysia, that is, it was open on two sides to […]

A stroll in a local park, Johor Bahru, Malaysia

Often I will travel miles to see animals, wildlife and views, and some times you can find it right on your doorstep. This afternoon I went for a short walk in my local park. I took my camera just in case I saw anything of interest, and I got some great shots. First thing I […]

Fishing Museum, Tanjung Balau Beach, Kota Tinggi, Johor, Malaysia

Tanjung Balau Beach is a fantastic looking beach. Nice sand, warm shallow water, and popular. The Fishing Museum is a nice simple museum, very well put together, not large, and not overly informative.
