Singapore Trip – Part 1, Nuffnang Awards, URA, And Mint Toys Museum

About 2 weeks ago, 23rd til 25th of October 2009, I was in Singapore thanks to Nuffnang Singapore for the sponsored trip and also thanks to Tourism Singapore for the collaboration..

I know I’m a bit jakun but it’s actually my somewhat first time in Singapore..I’ve been to Singapore very very very long ago, that’s when I was in kindergarten and it’s my dad’s company trip..

Okay never mind bout the history and all..Back to Singapore trip..Here’s a bit of summary..

We left Asian Heritage Row, KL at about 9am..Reached Singapore at about 2.30pm if not mistaken..Waited at the hotel lobby of Link Hotel at Tiong Bharu..

Then off we went to Pan Pacific Hotel (if not mistaken) for the grand gala awards dinner..

*Me, Ginny, Akiraceo..We lengchai and lenglui or not? :P *

Well if you ask me now, I couldn’t remember a thing except for Xiaxue winning the Region’s Best Blog, Most Influential Blog, and Best Original Blog Design..Congrats..

You can check out the other winners HERE..

IMHO, the Best Original Blog Design should go to Akiraceo because the whole layout is very original and is done by the blogger himself..

But I bet Xiaxue’s fans did a lot to make Xiaxue win every category which she’s nominated for and I doubt she designed the layout all by herself..

Anyway, the dinner was great and performance was good too..I quite like the magic show..The female magician was hot!

I think the rock band was a bit out of place, nevertheless I quite like their music..

Overall the event is nicely done considering the award it’s the first of its kind in this region, if you exclude Project Petaling Street previous dinners..LOL~!!

So the next day came, I reckoned that I should stick with the tour since it’s my first time in Singapore and most of the places that needed entry fees have been waived..So it’s a good idea to follow them..

Our first stop is Singapore’s Chinatown, very much cleaner and better looking than our very own Chinatown..

We went to the Chinese Heritage Museum or something like that..It’s actually in one of the shoplots in Chinatown..

The museum tells the story on how the Chinese ended being in Singapore and their olden days culture..

It also has a scary kitchen..Go check it out yourself if you want to know..Continue on for more interesting places wtf..
