From Kuala Lumpur to Singapore
I left Bali at 8am in the morning for Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. After getting off the plane I ran to catch a bus to Singapore. I had to run through Chinatown with my giant backpack and I finally found a very crowded bus station. I got on the bus right away and in 5 hours I was in Singapore. The journey was very comfortable.

Things to Do in Singapore
I absolutely loved Singapore! It is a very nice and neat city. It is a tropical metropolis with all the fascinating things an Asian metropolis has to offer. There were Christmas trees everywhere and everybody was Christmas shopping. Everywhere I went I could hear Christmas songs. There were giant shopping malls and people would shop non-stop. I really had to restrain myself from shopping, because I did not want to carry around more stuff. I spent the first day sightseeing. I visited all the interesting sites including Little India and Chinatown. I also visited the Marina Bay and took some photos with the symbol of Singapore, the dragon faced water spitting fish called Merlion. I also visited the Raffles Hotel and had a tea in the lobby. It is an old traditional colonial hotel, built in a very English style.
The city is really neat. If you chew a gum, you will be fined $1000. You cannot spit or litter, because you will be fined also.
On the last day I went to visit Battle Box, which is the largest underground command centre of the British Malaya Command Headquarters during World War II. It comprises 22 rooms linked by a corridor. This complex is bomb-proof and also capable of recycling its own air supply. Through the use of special audio-visual effects, and high-quality animatronics visitors are able to relive the morning of 15 February 1942 when Singapore fell to the Japanese.
After that I visited the Toy Museum and some exhibitions in the National Library. I ended the day in a shopping mall again.
Nightlife of Singapore
Next day I went out with a Dane/Korean girl Mia, who I met on the Internet. We went to Clarke Quay where all the hot spots were. Singapore nightlife was amazing! We went to Fashion Bar and I tried the local drink Singapore Sling. It tasted interesting. There were only foreigners in that place.
On my last night I went to the Christmas party of a the watch magazine Revolution. The party was great fun with all the wealthy and beautiful people in town.
