I couldnâ€™t make up my mind whether I wanted to spend a weekend in Singapore or Hong Kong. I posted a question on my Facebook profile and almost everyone said I should go to Hong Kong. One friend, however, brought up the very good point of the weather being much nicer in Singapore (you donâ€™t need to say â€œcoldâ€ twice to an Israeli girl to scare her off) and when you lump that with how much cheaper it would be – a decision was made – I am going to Singapore!
I feel that another good reason to go to Singapore is to learn for myself what this place is all about. If I hear one more person (who has never traveled there) tell me: â€œoh, Singapore, yes, you know you canâ€™t spit on the sidewalk there and a few years ago some guy went to jail for chewing gumâ€, I will scream. How can that be the only thing we know about a country?? Hereâ€™s a slightly more interesting fact, the symbol of Singapore is the “Merlion”, half-fish and half-lion beast.
The food is said to be spectacular and I am very much looking forward to it.
Anyway, I booked my ticket and am going next weekend!
