5 Top Things To Do In Singapore, Post-Covid

Lately I've been thinking alot about which country to go to after this pandemic is controlled. To say that this pandemic will ever be over is an overstatement cause it won't miraculously go away. But it being controlled is a possibility to happen not so far in the future. Fingers crossed! :)

Malaysia is now in the first phase of  administering vaccines to the community. I, myself have registered on the MySejahtera apps and hope you have done so too. So back to the title, where to travel next once am allowed to do so? My almost forgotten passport has expired June 2020 and have never been renewed. Now it needs to be renewed and am dreaming of traveling again! 

But where to?

Somewhere near, 

somewhere affordable 

and somewhere safe.

The first country that came to mind was Singapore. Once vaccinated I can easily take a train there or maybe just take a flight? The prices of any hotel should be affordable now since the tourism sector is trying to pick up momentum and should give competitive prices. Right? Singapore may have been the most expensive city in the world, but it has many other superlatives: safe, cleanest, argumentative best food and definitely most entertaining, all packed in a compact, well planned development of an island!

4 Top Hostels in Kuta and Seminyak, Bali

Currently I have grown a liking to Bali, Indonesia and have been there 5 times in the past. Bali has the whole package for any type of traveler. From the beach goers to the culinary hunters and the nature lovers such as myself. And like my hometown Sabah, Bali also have the most beautiful sunsets around and fresh yet cheap seafood (if you know where to find 'em).

Besides that, with millions of tourists coming to Bali each year, you will never be short of accommodations in any part of Bali. Here are 4 hostels I would highly recommend  depending on my purposes for staying there. All of my recommendations have an average of 8.9 score on and here are the main options I seek when choosing a hostel :-

  • provides an all female dorm
  • free breakfast included with price
  • closeness to certain places (eateries, fav stores, beaches etc)
And here's my list!

1. KOSTA HOSTEL - Jalan Dewi Saraswati III No. 77, 80361 Seminyak, Indonesia

The only hostel in this list located in Seminyak. I chose this place because of its close proximity to my favorite Indonesian flagship store on Sunset Rd which is the famous EIGER store. It takes only a 7 minutes walk the store from the hostel. Good place to stare so that you can make several trips to the store for a shopping spree. Hehe.  And the hostel is very comfortable with very big beds. My room was a three person female dorm as seen in the picture below. I loved the decor so much. The negative part - no breakfast is included with the price. Sold separately.

Kosta Hostel - Beautifully decorated with a boutique-likeness hotel. With dorms!

Iftar Sets at Alchemist Dessert Café, Subang Jaya

Ramadan Special from 7 May to 4 June 2019. Hurry guys!

I absentmindedly came upon this cafe from some-one's Instagram post and was drawn to the instagrammable pictures of their desserts. The place itself looked trendy as well. So I looked it up on both google and Facebook and found out that it is currently offering Ramadan Specials during this fasting month.

Very reasonable price!
I invited a few of my friends and my sister to check this place out during Wesak's public holiday. Booked a table for four and it was all set. We went for the 5 pax set.

Trusted Driver in Bali

Well we might have encountered those type of drivers whom we dealt with beforehand upon arrival that takes us to places we don't want to go. Places where the paid drivers can get commission even-though it was not upon our wish to go there.
Sunset at Kuta Beach! No need to dine in Jimbaran!
