My recent trip to merlion city of Asia – Singapore was indeed very fruitful. I achieved and accomplished my primary reason of travelling – to do an international bench-marking as part of my final requirement to finish my degree. Admittedly Singapore was just a fall out plan but turned out to be a pretty good alternative of my top choice. Malaysia and Thailand were my target due to financial consideration and the vibrant culture that we can emulate. However, due to last minute craze, I opted to visit Singapore instead via bus from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
So far I have couple of things that I find interesting during my 3-day stay the trans-shipment port capital of Asia. But for now I will just highlight one of them – the transport system. That includes the public utilities such as taxis, buses, monorails and trains.
I’ve read some of the nightmares of first timer Filipino travelling abroad. As my mind trying to digest the horrendous experiences, my heart seemed anxious and edgy that I might suffer the same fate when I come face to face with the Nazi-like immigration officers (IOs) at the airport. My travel partner, Diana, had her share of some agonizing and terrorizing moments at their hands for more than fifteen minutes when she made her first international travel.
Equipped with some learning insights, dressed in semi-fit shirt, a short pants and tennis shoes with a camper’s backpack, I confidently walked towards the immigration officer one high noon of 27th November, 2014. I was good at faking my emotion and throw my nervousness at the back stage as I drew near his cubicle.
