The Museum of Singapore

Honestly, why I though that a museum that had the name ‘The Singapore Museum’ would be a natural history museum is beyond me. One thing that I have discovered in my travels is that if you wander into a museum that has the name of the city that it is located in at the front (or at the end with the article ‘of’ between the name of the city and the word ‘museum’) then it is going to be about the city, not a building full of stuffed animals and dinosaur skeletons. … More The Museum of Singapore

Old Town Phuket

I decided that when we arrived in Phuket, instead of making a mad rush for the harbour in hope of catching a ferry out to Phi Phi island, we would take it a little easier and spend the night in the main town, though that one night ended up stretching out to two, especially after I discovered a few things to go and check out while we were on the island (and in the local area as opposed to the beaches). … More Old Town Phuket

Miles to Melaka

During my time at University, as well as my extensive reading, I have encountered Malacca more times than not, yet while the place would sit in my mind, it seemed to be one of the mysterious places which didn’t have a definite location. This is a little odd since for quite a while it was … More Miles to Melaka
