In search of the urban hot spring | 三巴旺温泉之旅

新加坡,位于赤带的岛国,常年温度平均在于23-31摄氏度。 除了鱼尾狮、滨海艺术中心、乌节路、摩天轮等,新加坡的“郊外”也别有洞天。 温泉,在我们这热带岛国,似乎不受宠,因为天气太热了。 三巴旺温泉,近年却来开始受国人瞩目。许多爱好郊游的国人,常骑自行车到温泉走走,煮些温泉蛋,或泡泡脚。硫磺温泉水,据说对治疗脚疾有一定的效用(但这因人而异)。除了拜访温泉,也探访了旧式的潮州饼家。这一整个早晨走下来,还挺有收获的。   Hot spring in Singapore, sounds like a deal too good (and too hot) to have? I was pretty amazed when I heard about this a few years back, and it’s pretty near the Sembawang Shopping Centre, where I use to frequent previously, but never had the motivation to just walk…

享受一下 在”家”度假 (二) | Village Hotel Katong Staycation

每年的年除夕倒数,我通常选择出外旅游,在国外度过。 若人在本地,和家人一同欢聚,或和朋友相约庆祝,地点也是让人头疼的项目。 如果在朋友家里庆祝,温馨但是却又不想麻烦他们,因为派对过后盘杯狼藉,要收拾也得费一番功夫。 结果,staycation 又成为另一选择。 位于东海岸路(East Coast Road)的Village Hotel Katong, 虽然外表陈旧,室内的装横经过翻新后,勃有娘惹风味,整体上感觉前卫有不失温馨的气氛。Long gone were the days of joining in the New Year Eve’s countdown action in town for me.     Finding a location locally in Singapore to spend some time with your friends or family is challenging too. You can choose to host your friends,…

Quincy, has received many positive reviews and I was keen to find out for myself and I got myself and the boy checked in for his early birthday celebration last November. We…

岛国。被遗忘的美丽

我承认,我爱往外跑。 有时候,渐渐忘了家的样子。 以前常常想,家永远都在。 近几个月,慢下脚步,四处逛逛。 才发现,这片土地变化太快。 想要留住一些回忆,希望不会太迟。 重新认识这岛国,走一趟Yishun Dam. 一起去郊游吧 Photographers, waiting for the moment. 夕阳。 这不是我所熟悉的新加坡。 晚霞,真不赖。 How to get to Yishun Dam: There’s no direct public bus, so it’s either you drive, take a cab, or try to cycle there. However, if you really need to take a bus, you can try to take…
