2012 Singapore Part 2: A Beary Good Experience

Hi again,

This is the second part. We're still in Chinatown Singapore. BTW, have I mention that our hostel (the lovely A Beary Good Hostel) is just a few meters from Chinatown MRT station? It is indeed!

Trivia again:
  1. A Beary Good Hostel located inside the Chinatown heritage shophouse, hence it cute size.
  2. A quick shopping can be done downstairs, there are many shops selling ranges of goods, from souvenir (thingking of keychain?) even you may find clothes here.
  3. Eateries are everywhere, being in Chinatown make it top spot for Chinese Cuisine. But since I'm a muslim, it's quite hard for me to find Halal food (or, I'm doubt about their Halal-ness)
  4. Hence, fast food is the best choice! There is a McDonald within walking distance (without crossing road). Food problem settle!
  5. You want to perform solat but staying in hostel make it hard for you? There is a heritage mosque nearby. Masjid Jamae'. It located at the end of the Pagoda St. So again, within walking distance!
Now, lets picture do the talking!

2012 Singapore Part 1: A Beary Good Experience

Hi all,

It's no secret that I love Singapore so much! This year only, I've been there 2 times. First, with my ex-course mate in UTM to USS (universal studio Singapore), in January. Then i went there for 1 more time with my ex-teammate (back then during my uni debate) for a paper conference at peninsula excelsior hotel.

OK, let me start with my accommodation. this is my first time (read: first) overnight in Singapore, wow I'm so excited! but I've got no idea where to stay. hotel, hmm maybe expensive (yeah, I'm a tight budget traveler). so i opted for backpackers hostel. simple Google will tell me that there are many backpackers hostel in Singapore. but mostly in Little India. so I expect that the place to be quite rugged and no-so-tidy as Singapore always be.

Suddenly I found this link. so i just jot down the hostel name and their address. I don't book any of it because of no credit card (pity me T___T). Wish that they'll have extra 2 beds for my friend and I. Finger cross! But it's my lucky day, the first hostel that i went have 2 beds for us. It is a beary good hostel! Plus, this is in Chinatown!

From now on, let just picture do the talking...
