When you enter Singapore you are reminded that the penalty for bringing drugs into the country is death, and once you’re in Singapore you had best watch what you’re doing because you’re being watched – always. CCTV is everywhere & is used to monitor everything from loan sharks lớn illegal parkers.


It’s a very clean place and you can be fined for everything from spitting lớn jaywalking (and FYI Singapore is not down with the gays – not yet, at least).

But let’s move on from all the laws (and did I mention the outrageous cost of beer?) & focus on some other things – lượt thích how incredibly hot and humid it is here. I am literally thirsty all the time. It seems that no amount of fluid can quench the thirst brought on by the Singaporean weather (which can turn on a dime).

Overall, I enjoyed Singapore (and not just because I got lớn hang out with some Halfway Anywhere readers in the city’s highest craft brewery, LeVeL33). Will I go back? Probably. Would I live there? Probably not (I’m not down with humidity – unless we’re in Brazil).
