I was lucky enough to have been assigned to a project that would require me to travel and train our staff all over Asia. I wasn’t totally shocked when I was asked to visit Asia because a very good friend of mine is a ‘heavy hitter’ in one of our offices in Australia.
With her kind words, I was pinpointed to perform the training and was given four cities to visit. First stop – SINGAPORE.
I didn’t know much about Singapore. 10 years ago, I was asked to go and participate in our companies’ employee exchange program. Our VP approached me and queried whether I would go to Singapore and do a two-year stint there to learn their process and bring it back to the U.S. Mind you, this was the time when this American kid in Singapore vandalized a lot of cars with spray paint and was caught. The punishment? Lashing! I thought very differently about Singapore then and I had to turn it down.
Anyway, this time around – – I would have given anything up to move to Singapore. As little as the city was, I experienced everything FIRST CLASS. I stayed at the Rasa Sentosa Resort. It was amazing!!!
Here are a few pictures to show you what Singapore is like.

Of course I didn’t miss this! 😉

Another one… I was staying in one of those.
I heard that this beach was man-made.
A peacock right on the premises.Â Well, a bald peacock.Â 😀
