week 9-12 | scooting along
17 october 2012 | singapore

And here it seemed I'd forgotten to write about the last exhilarating weeks in Singapore. Fear not! Beautiful buildings, a Hong Kong speed-[...]run, and more food await the eager reader.

singapore: final report
16 september 2012 | singapore

Before finishing my adventures in Singapore, I was asked to put together a final report describing my experiences and where the program cou[...]ld improve. Rather than bore you with details, I've included a link to download the report. This is a draft form and I'll update the link with a finished version in the future.

week 7 and 8 | good times
20 august 2012 | singapore

Marina Bay Sands, Sydney, Haw Pa Villa and more! The good times keep rolling in Singapore.[...]

week 5 and 6 | once again
21 july 2012 | singapore

Sometimes it feels like life should have a record button that nicely parses the endless stream of awesomeness that comes at you. Not a came[...]corder or microphone, but a program that understands the world, can automatically find and retrieve the most useful links then type-up a nicely formatted document to present to others. Alas, while some of this technology exist, it isn't in one nice little package. Plus, writing about Singapore is almost as fun as experiencing it. Below are some finds from my fifth and sixth week in Singapore, from adventures in Bali to savouring the taste of Ayam Goreng Pedas Ramen (super spicy!).

week 4 | ramping up
08 july 2012 | singapore

Massive artificial trees, beautiful orchid gardens, clubbing till late and learning about Singapore from students and labmates--this week w[...]as a blast.

week 3 | up and away
02 july 2012 | singapore

Allowed a bit of a breather this week, but nonetheless still full of adventures: getting an equivalent of Montezuma's revenge (but still tr[...]udging on), visiting the awesome Mustafa Indian centre, a trip to Malaysia, biking and plenty more. Let's dive in.

week 2 | day and night
19 june 2012 | singapore

This pace can't keep up. Saw some crazy animals at a night safari, wandered around NUS's campus late at night (the place is chaotic, beauti[...]ful and slightly eerie at night), met with SUTD's president and more. It seems that staying in Singapore for most of the summer is a go, there is so much here to find out and explore. That might also be because I severely underestimated the size of the country (e.g. don't glance at a map's scale and assume 20 miles = 2 miles, haha). Anyhow, here goes, another eventful week summarized in small snippets.

week 1 | go time
12 june 2012 | singapore

Wow, what a week. Ran around Hong Kong, learned a couple new things in the lab, meet a bunch of awesome MIT/SUTD students, went clubbing tw[...]ice, ate a different type (Indian, Indonesian, Muslim, etc.) of food each meal, wandered around Singapore several of the nights and so much more. To top it all off, I was able to learn a ton about Singapore's culture. This place is awesome.

week 1 | flying out
09 june 2012 | singapore

I fly out to Singapore today. Two days, 11,459 miles and (hopefully) one A Song of Fire and Ice book later, I'll be in my dream city. Can't[...] wait!

week 0 | singapore!
26 may 2012 | singapore

First post about Singapore lays out some of the background surrounding the trip and Singapore itself. This summer is going to be awesome![...]p>
