This is somewhat extreme but watch how this Canadian couple chose financial independence over home ownership.  They are in their 30s and,...

Inexpensive chill out ideas.

Sunday, May 26, 2013

Life can be hectic especially in a city like Singapore. In fact, it often is.

Today, I had breakfast in a rather nice setting before going for a stroll in a nearby park.


Green is the most soothing color to the eye.

Breakfast: $6.95.
Newspapers: $0.90.
Visit to the park: $0.00.

Inexpensive, yummy and therapeutic.

Visited another park in Singapore today.

Lower Peirce Reservoir. 

I like it and will visit again!

Hi Kelvin,

I am going to be secretively revealing: Singapore. ;p

I am sure some readers have the answer. :)

AK, you will be saying Oishi for a different reason soon :p

Just saw your post and couldnt resist saying that!

I have found that sometimes the best chillout areas are the places nearest to home, or the places where people dont conventionally think of as a chillout spot.

Sometimes when I'm having break fast alone on a weekend, I like to head to a nearby coffeeshop early in the morning, have a bowl of awesome prawn noodles, a cup of kopi-c, and a copy of the Business Times, all for less than $6.00, but a little less atas than yours though hehe!

Hi Clueless Punter,

A different reason? Er... What might that be? I am clueless. ;p

I don't like prawns but I do like the prawn noodles soup. So, when I order prawn noodles, I tell the hawkers: xia mian bu yao xia. Hahahaha... I always get that kind of look from them. -.-

Aiyoh, this breakfast is not atas lah. Atas breakfast is like this: Breakfast at Coffee Bean.

Hi AK,

I have a feeling that you are staying quite near my place. And yes, I'll keep it a secret. Ssshhhhh... :P

BTW, I order wanton mee without wanton. Haha.

Hi Endrene,

This blog post is like a Russian Doll. If you have guessed the locations correctly, I will tell you that I am not staying near them. ;)

Anyway, shhhh.... ;p

Hi AK,

Recently I went to Gardens by the bay and marina barrage. I find that it's quite a leisurely walk and it's totally free. I would have paid to enter the enclosed area, but there's too many people. Good for people who wants to have a scenic view of MBS, marina bay area :)

Hi LP,

Gardens by the Bay is beautiful:Gardens by the Bay

Safra members, I heard, get a discount on tickets to enter the Domes.

Marina Barrage, I discovered a few years ago and was visiting regularly for a while. Really like the peace and quiet. Well, it got a bit too popular after a while and I stop visiting. :(
