Travel: Uniquely Singapore

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.

"The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page." 

Remember back in 2008 when I told you about my one-day one-night trip to Singapore. It was a good experience even for just a short period. As you might heard, Singapore is a highly developed country  and  believe it or not it is smaller than our smallest state, Perlis. The houses, buildings,  roads and etc, were very well-planned like those in Putrajaya and because of that reason, they (along with Malaysia and Brunei) became the most developed country in South-east Asia. Oh. and do you know that the port of Singapore is the busiest transshipment and container port in the world, and is an important transportation and shipping hub in Southeast Asia?

If you are planning to go to Singapore sometime in the future, I recommend you to visit their Mosques. Not only they have beautiful mosques, but each of them carry different roles to the community (Muslims and non-Muslims) around them. Some of them are Islamic Centre to explain the misunderstanding about Islam to all, Islamic schools, Tahfiz and many more.

Many other interesting and beautiful places include the Merlion, Marina Bay and shopping complexes. And always bear in mind that the customs authorities are very strict. Certain food products and vegetables are not allowed to be taken out or into the country. You might get caught or fine if you brought along those items. I think it's better experience it yourself. After all, the use of traveling is to regulate imagination by reality, and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them as they are.

Longest bus I've ever seen

Their driving schools use this car. Nice.

Until now I couldn't understand their road rules at a junction. Weird how it works.

And the highlight for this entry. The Masjids.

Masjid Sultan
Masjid An-Nahdhah has a Harmony Centre to explain about Islam for Muslims and Non-Muslims.

Masjid Ar-Raudhah: We stayed here last time.

They have Darul Quran program at this Masjid Kampung Singlap
note: I am supposed to join another trip to places just like this one at the end of this semester but alas, due to my (so-called) busy schedule, I can't join them and they couldn't afford to plan another trip for everyone in the HQ. They have planned to go to Terengganu this time to enjoy the 'candat sotong' (squid cathcing) activity, but I think they cancelled it, (or did they go, I'm not sure).

note2: I decided not to join the Volleyball tournament tomorrow in Temerloh, Pahang and also the MASUM games in Arau, Perlis. Sorry teammates. I have my reason. My EIT starts this coming Monday April 12th and I need to prepare few things beforehand. (-_-")

note3: Checked the location of the company, where I'm going to undergo the training, after Friday Prayer. It is a big company near Batu Berendam Airport manufacturing 'Kubah' and Boats using composites. By the way, anyone know the girl who is also going to do practical training with me at this company? Nadia Samsudin from Material deparment.

    I went there back in 2005 with family. everything suddenly got expensive in the SG dollars :P but I liked how well its public transport system is. all cars on the roads are new. one more, almost no motorbikes/kapcai/rempit pun kat roadways tu!

  4. sharing is.... caring
    eventhough i already went to korea and taiwan, but never been to singapore

  5. @Cik irah
    wow. you must be very good with MRTs. I mean the stations were so many and the MRT map were so confusing, I decided to just follow my Singaporean friend. Or else I'll be lost. No handphone some more. :)

    So true. their transportation systems are so efficient even for the buses from Larkin, Johor to Singapore.

    @kyo san
    tapi some places are nice right? Kalau dah biasa pegi mungkin tak rasa sgt kot. hehe

  6. thanks for the suggestion in my previous entry..i have answered ur comment.

  7. @joegrimjow

    but only for a short trip to a factory there, unfortunately.

    went to 2 masjids the last time I was there, yup, very nice Masjids indeed.

    then again.. we spend quite a long time lost on the road, despite printing the google map beforehand. so that wasn't very fun.
