Some of the more observant of you may have noticed that sometimes I refer to my ‘bucket list’. This was put together for me by my wonderful friend Kiri before I left the UK, and is a list of stuff I have to do whilst in Singapore.

The deal is that I have to get a photo of the thing on the list, preferably with my face in there somewhere! This is not a comprehensive list of things to do in Singapore, and she’s actually deliberately left off some of the more touristy stuff.

Where I’ve done things and remembered to take a photo, I’ll put a link to the appropriate blog post.

Here’s the list:

  1. Now I’ve seen the bucket list there are some pretty cool things to be done! How great that your friend did this for you 🙂 Look forward to hearing about when you’ve done them and maybe tagging along for a few too!

  2. This is an amazing list. I moved to Singapore from the UK with my husband in early April. I’ve been following your blog for a couple of months and have found it so useful in preparing to go, settling in and discovering all of the exciting things to do and get involved in out here! I’m really pleased to see that I have already ticked off a few things on this list 🙂 This blog is such a great way to record and share your experiences out here, has really inspired me to think about setting one up myself. I will certainly be trying to tick off a few more items on the list!

  3. I must keep this list handy for guests (and for myself too). Been here over a year and sadly I can’t tick off most things… gives me a challenge though! Thanks 🙂
