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

Where to go for a meaningful and inexpensive vacation?

Sunday, June 7, 2015

I have blogged about how we should try to be tourists in our own country, have "staycations" or a vacation in our country. There are so many things to see and do in Singapore.

Some might think that this is just another cheapskate idea from AK. Well, when I think about how foreigners spend a lot of money to have vacations in Singapore and I don't have to, it puts things in perspective for me. Singapore is not a cheap place to have a vacation in! 

A: "Where are you going for your vacation?"

B: "Singapore lah."

A: "Wah, Singapore is so expensive, you very rich."

B: "Hehehehe..."

Today, I decided to visit the National Museum.

Specifically, the visit was to view the exhibits "In Memoriam of Lee Kuan Yew."

Remember what used to be here? See the red bricked gate posts?

This sculpture has been outside the National Museum for a long time.
I always thought they must be Chinese. Look at their feet.

The reason for my visit.

What's this? Want to make a guess?

In Memoriam of Lee Kuan Yew. Respect.

The "In Memoriam of Lee Kuan Yew" exhibition is free to visit and open from 10am to 8pm.

A vacation at home can be a meaningful vacation too without spending too much money. If you have young children and old folks at home, you will appreciate a vacation at home even more, for various other reasons.

So, where are you going for your vacation?
