“Holy Freakin’ Merlion Batman! Can the hotel BE any further from the city?” was what I thought as the taxi trudged through the “outback” to eventually offload us at the Changi Village Hotel.
But to be fair, the hotel itself was a rather pleasant and elegant establishment. And being on the executive floor made the deal even sweeter. Free Toblerone mah! : )
But still, this was an area in Singapore I've never really explored and it did feel like a million miles away (a $20 cab ride, actually) from civilization (read: Takashimaya).
Anyway, Changi Village turned out to be a slice of paradise complete with a beach and plenty of snap-inducing sights. And it was also no surprise that even in the remotest of ‘ceruks’, the streets are clean and the trees are all green and alive.
A ferry terminal sits nicely by a lagoon and a steady stream of people could be seen hopping on boats to get to nearby islands. Not to Middle Rocks though, hah!
The beach itself is pretty decent. I was searching for cigarette butts on the sand but couldn’t find any. Should send some of their people over to PD.
And yes, Singaporeans do partake in activities outside of malls.
And in case you somehow forget where you were, there are plenty of signs to remind you that this is in fact a “fine” place…
Of course, a place wouldn’t be a “slice of paradise” without good food to boast, which I accidentally stumbled upon while checking out the wet market. changi village
And peeps, Ayam Penyet rules! What made the whole dish even more memorable was the super spicy yet sweet homemade sambal. We actually ordered “ayam tambah” which resulted in us being left behind by the shuttle to the airport. But it was well worth it.
So the next time I think of a beach holiday, Changi Village will definitely be on the list, believe it or not…
So I just came back from Singapore for Broadcast Asia. As expected, it was a well organised event with plenty of participation from industry players from all over the world. The booths had everything, from hardware, content and even Iron Man...

2. Incredible Hulk tops US box office with $54.5
What choice did the people have? I mean, we wouldn’t want to make the Hulk angry, would we?
3. Snoop Dogg’s wife arrested for driving under the influence
All in the name of good content, I would assume.
4. Kevin Federline named Father of the Year by a nightclub in Las Vegas
The same club awarded Britney with the Mother Theresa Lifetime Achievement Award…

There's no need to rush, rush into things now Paula...
