From an early morning on departure to a late arrival in Singapore. 24 hours of travel time! Im exhausted! Got in to the Hostel around 1am, and 6 hours later I cant sleep! 7am and wide awake! Maybe its because Im a time traveller…I am 15hrs ahead of PST – Its 7am June 12!
Going through customs and immigration is easy peasy lemon squeezy. Just fill out the paperwork, smile, and don’t forget to sign the document like I did! Oh, And I guess your not supposed to take pictures of immigration. Oops 😁😮 😇
Lastly, bringing any kind of illegal drugs can result in death. I wonder how the Mexican drug lords deal with this law?
Nissan GTR ad. I think this country is hinting at me on what car I need to get next.
Death for drug traffickers!
I had the coolest taxi driver from the airport. Mr. Lee told me all about Singapore and what I need to see and do (most of the stuff was already on my plan as it is, but its nice to hear it from a local). We talked about living in Singapore, and in his opinion, its the safest city in Asia, however it is also the most expensive. For all you car fanatics like myself, I got some pricing from him for cars – its crazy! A Mitsubishi evo costs around $130,000 SGD ($96,600 USD)!!! Plus registration fees which is around another $75k SGD for a 10year plate. Apparently cars need to be re-registered or exported every 10 years in Singapore (I havent seen many old cars here). Thank you Mr. Lee for the ride! Maybe ill see you around Chinatown when I go!
The Hostel is fun, the owner, Ron, is very nice and accommodating. Gave me a quick tour of the place and showed me to a tiny room with an ikea bunk bed. The room is probably an 8×8 room – super tiny and has a desk and a stool. Replace the door with bars and its a jail cell! Traveling in luxury!
