1. Food and Beer. Anytime, Anywhere, High Quality and Cheap. Favourite makan area is Joo Chiat/ Katong.
2. Colonial and progressive Architecture particularly with adaptive conservation. Favourite examples Far East Sq, Lotus at Joo Chiat, Bukit Pasoh.
3. Home in the sky "SIM City" living of HDB estates. Favourite HDB estate is Toa Payoh. Have to visit URA Gallery to get the full impact of how extensive is this central planning.
4. Little India. Authentic feel to an ethnic district.
5. Piece of nature: Bukit Timah hill. Highest point, easy access, good spectrum of floral and not overdone as a tourist attraction.
