A Hike to Alexandra Arch – Southern Ridges Trail in Singapore

To burn off the calories, we drove to nearby Southern Ridges and decided to embark on part of the trail – from Telok Blangah Hill to Alexandra Arch.  I didn’t exactly keep track of the time, but a one-way trip would definitely …

Ok, I’m bidding farewell to pandemic in advance. Because I am confident Singapore will do well in no time, with our vaccination moving up at a healthy pace. As of today, 67% of our population have been fully-vaccinated.

It is one of the best museums I’ve been to, and I said that not because I’m a Singaporean. This oldest museum in Singapore was well organised such that Singapore’s history was shared …
