January 8, 2018
Singapore Gardens by the Bay

This post might come slightly late but I just want to share my experiences of being an exchange student in Singapore with anyone who is considering this country for an exchange program. When I chose Singapore for my one year exchange, I had never been to this country before and I didn’t hear too much about it either. But that was okay and it was a thrill for me to just go to an unknown land and just see what…

Ho Chi Minh City – The City of Motorbikes

January 5, 2018

If you have ever been to Ho Chi Minh City you might have noticed the mass of motorbikes driving around the city. And there are certainly no rules when driving but somehow it works. Don’t ask me why.

Exploring Palawan in the Philippines

May 29, 2017

It was Recess Week at NTU Singapore and what better opportunity is there than exploring Palawan in the Philippines. Usually, when someone hears of Palawan, they immediately think of the beautiful beaches at El Nido. However, when I visited the Philippines, my friends and I decided to stay in the town called Puerto Princesa. The town and the people who live there are absolutely charming and until now there are not too many tourists and you get a better cultural…

Must try restaurants in Singapore

May 5, 2017

Having lived in Singapore for 10 months I got to know quite a few places to get food. That’s why I want to give you a short list of must try restaurants in Singapore (especially if you are craving non-Asian food). When I first got to Singapore I had a lot of problems in finding food for me because I don’t really like eating seafood or spicy food which made it very difficult for me to find good Asian food.…
