24 hours in Singapore

When my 60-day visa for Bali expired the other day, instead of going home, I decided to do a visa run. I picked Singapore because it was close with good flight times and I didn’t really give it much thought until I actually got there. Then I wished I’d book to stay for longer. I didn’t have time to do a lot, but this is what I got up to.

I woke up at 4am – lucky me. So I walked to Gardens by the Bay to watch the sunrise, before heading out in search of coffee.  I stumbled upon this gem, where I sat for a Dapper Cold Fashioned.

I was tempted by the Unicorn Tears – glittery drinks are a yes from me – but caffeine is king.
I headed back to Gardens by the Bay to check out the flower dome and cloud forest. Pretty breath taking. Whilst I know it’s totally man made, it still made me totally in awe of nature.

There's always a different exhibit going on at the flower dome, whilst I was there it was "Tulipmania" – think tons of tulips with a Van Gogh twist.

I won’t lie; one of my main objectives was to shop – when you accidentally end up going travelling for 3 months you get pretty bored of your wardrobe (can I call it that when it’s a suitcase…?). Especially when most of your packing consisted of yoga pants and sports bras. The shopping was great – I won’t bore you with the details but I went to ION Orchard + Raffles City Shopping Centre. Great for all the regular Western brands.

In search of more coffee and brunch I went to Chye Seng Huat. An achingly cool café, located super close to where I was staying. Here I ate honestly one of the best things I’ve eaten in a very long time (sorry nasi goreng), and also managed to grab some more coffee beans for my aeropress.

Unfortunately that was all I had time for before flying back to Bali. Next time I’ll be staying for more than 24 hours, that’s for sure.
