Why pay a shitload for bad service at a real restaurant when you can get cheap delicious food at the mall food court or hawker stall and pick up chicks while you’re there?
That’s what the non-millionaire locals do for food in Singapore and it’s a much better option.
Mr Casey, who was accompanied by his wife Bernice, a former Miss Singapore, and their five-year-old son, triggered fury last week by posting a series of insulting Facebook updates that quickly spread around the globe.
Singapore, a tiny nation-state at the southern tip of Malaysia, is really on the rise these days.
A haven for big banking and other big money businesses it is quickly, along with Hong Kong, turning into the economic powerhouse of Southeast Asia.
Shit is happening there, skyscrapers are going up all over the place and people are immigrating from all over the region (and the world) to get in on the party. That was at a somewhat fancy place and prices at super high end places can be as high as $25 SGD ($21 USD).
With that in mind, I went to Singapore for an extended period this summer and I have a lot to say about it. The first night I was there I went to the bar and ordered a pint of local brew on draft, Tiger Beer. Add this to the club entrance fees which can often be $30 SGD and up and you can easily spend a couple hundred bucks going out on a weekend night and not even get drunk.
There’s great party there and an enormous number of hot chicks, but despite those advantages Singapore is absolutely a recommended single dude travel destination. I personally prefer cheaper places where you don’t have to call your broker to sell your investments in order to go out and party, places where you can go out freely without worrying that you’re going to spend your whole paycheck on mediocre Southeast Asian beer.
To party well and survive financially in Singapore you have be smart about it.
My Singapore nightlife survival strategy includes several tricks to take the edge off the high drink prices: 1.
Duty Free – Every time you come into Singapore from abroad (except from Malaysia, nothing is allowed) you bring booze from Duty Free.
This will save you lots of money over the store price and enormous amounts over the bar price.
Unfortunately the duty-free allowance is only 1 bottle of booze (1 liter), 1 bottle of wine (750 ml), 3 bottles of beer (330 ml each), and cigarettes.
