Singapore -- the little red dot on the globe

Singapore is the first place I set foot on outside of the Philippines. For whatever reason I fell in love with the place that's why I kept on coming back in that island nation 4x in just a span of less than 2 years.

The small country is a big melting pot united by a common neutral first language left behind by its colonizers England, a burning passion for good food & cuisines, a terrible fear of losing out to others and the insidious respect of the government.

It's a "fine" country (as in fine=penalties). You should be more aware of what you should not do rather than what to do. Despite that, one will love the order and precision of daily activities day-in and day-out. It is a city masquerading as a country, buzzing with the trappings of modern living.

Singaporeans live for good because they are all spoilt for choices as there is a rich variety of food due to many cultures and races intermingling the island. Tourists will find the diversity of food just simply amazing (I can guarantee that!).

There are over 70 world class hotels, 18 golf courses and more tourist attractions than you can ever hope to get around while you are there.

Well, I guess that there's more to Singapore than the infamous Merlion and that "Fine City" tag.
