A very WARM welcome to Singapore!

I am a Singapore Tourism Board Licensed Tourist Guide, and a Specialised Naturalist Guide.

Connect with me and rediscover Singapore's multi ethnic heritage, explore must-see tourist attractions, taste local cuisines, experience close-encounter with the native wildlife and much more!

I can recommend and assist you in planning your day or days, to suit your preference and interests.

No questions are too silly, and I love to make new acquaintance!

Patience is my greatest virtue...

Looking forward to hearing from you SOON!


A 10 mins bumboat ride will transport one back to Singapore in the 1960s!

Pulau Ubin (meaning Granite Island in Malay) holds Singapore’s last remaining kampong (village in Malay)!
Come and meet a few of the local residents and learn about their simple way of life.
At the eastern part of the island, discover 6 different Eco-systems and expect surprising encounters with the wildlife! Climb up a 21-meter tower that offers an amazing panoramic view of the wetlands and neighboring islands too.

Of course there are many stories to be told; WW2, wild ‘immigrants’, German Girl Shrine, and much more!

After all the above and before heading back to the mainland Singapore, enjoy a refreshing coconut accompanied by kampong cuisine.
