Reminiscing The First Glimpse of Singapore


As I recall when the first time I traveled abroad, everything I felt were all excitement. It was the first time I took a plane, first time that I will be in another land, being with people in different races. First time to be in a places where most of the things were unfamiliar. The feelings were mixed, somewhat nervous and a bit of scary feelings but most of all, the ecstatic feeling that I will be able to discover another world which different from the world I used to be. It was year 2005, almost 8 years ago, I was able to travel abroad because I was sent by my company for some quality assurance (QA) and testing related work. I was part of the computer integration manufacturing team (Information Technology team) in a semiconductor company.

My colleague and I stayed in Orchard Hotel Singapore which located in famous shopping road called Orchard Road.

The trip was less than a week. This means that I went around Singapore every night, only after work and a weekend before I went back in my country home.

The first place that I enjoyed was Orchard Road itself. For me, during those time, Orchard Road was perfect for me. My reasons were, it was the road where you can find a lot of shopping malls with signature products. It’s one of the busiest road in Singapore specially for the tourist like me. Since I only tour during night-time, I saw this road shines better at night. It has a lot of different building structure that fascinates me at that time.

It’s the first time I tasted different Asian food such as Indian, Vietnam, Malay and Chinese where the taste are different because of the spices and herbs that it contains.

My colleague and I also visited shopping areas at night which includes Chinatown, Little India and Bugis (Junction and Street Market). We visited Clarke Quay, Merlion Statue and the Esplanade Theatre as well.

When I am on my way to church in the morning that Sunday, I had a chance to see the Geylang area, which is the Red Light District of Singapore in a very different perspective since I saw the place in a very quiet time.

During the weekend that we stayed in Singapore, one of the tourist place that we visited was Jurong Bird Park. And here we discovered a man-made falls which made me amazed because it looks like natural falls.

All in all these were the things that I remembered happened last 2005, I will try to update this blog again if I still have some photos from this first visit in Singapore
