... clothes but the sale of Malay and Indian traditional clothing could be found along Arab Street.

As there are time constraints, and being a business executive do not have much time to spare due to the workload that needs to be sort out during this trip, there are still a few other places such as St. Joseph's Church at Victoria Street, CHIJMES at Bras Brasah Road that are also places of worship for Christian and also museum such as the ...

... recommend it to my friends back in India. And not forgetting the friendly locals in Singapore whom are always welcome us with a smile. However, there are some limitation that I would like to comment on, such as not enough public toilets and seats. Some suggestion that I would recommend would be to have more public toilets because when travelling with kids, these are the necessities.

... me when I saw blueberries. I was nearly in tears - it's been over a year and a half! I was willing to almost pay any price for it but luckily it was on sale for $2.5 :D I have a few things on my shopping list like nail polish (ones that don't chip after 34 minutes of applying), underwear, sneakers (I have decided to start jogging again!). Since I have 6 hours to kill while waiting for my passport, I am hoping to do some productive ...

... city. I wanted to see Raffles Hotel, (that I read about in novels which referenced Singapore during the war? Remember Tanamera by Noël Barber?), Chinatown, The Marina Bay Sands Towers and Orchard Road. We saw all these things and more, with a bonus lunch at Ku De Ta, which was fantastic. Although I do wonder where all the rebellious, disaffected and troubled ...

... vehicles on your roads makes me humbly appreciate the $97 bus pass I own.

Thank you weather forecast. I wish the moods of my sisters were as stable as your predictions. 85 with a 70% of rain - everyday.

Thank you Chinese nutrition labels. Even though I could never understand you, you allowed me to pretend my ice cream held 25% calcium instead of one quarter of my daily saturated fat.

    The staff were friendly and the room was clean. However, we could hear everyone's voice from the hallway and vice versa. Plus they charge extra for internet use.

    My wife and I along to another couple on business trip arrived at VH-Balestier around 3PM on a Sunday and check-in was a breeze. They charged us for S$109 for a standard double room at the 4th floor but after seeing that the room did not have any windows we asked for one that had windows. Reception was very accommodating. They immediately transferred us to another room with a window but we had to pay another S$10.00 extra to get a room that had a view of the back street alley on the west side. Air conditioning was good so the hot afternoon sun did not really bother us.

    The following Monday they charged us for only S$99.00 plus S$10 extra for a room with a window. Front desk personnel were always smiling every time we talked to them and they were very helpful in getting directions. You can also rent the computers in the lobby to google for directions @ S$4.00 for half-hour use.

    Room is adequate for our needs with a queen-size bed that's quite comfortable, not too hard not too soft. We were able to doze off right away as there was no noise coming from the traffic outside. Hotel room door was quite secure.

    There's an LCD TV hanging right in front of the bed and bedside switches for the lights. There's no telephone charge for city calls. You can get an extra pillow for S$5.00.

    Bathrooms are average size although the whole bathroom floor can get wet as there are no shower curtains. No problem with the hot shower. Standard bathroom amenities are available.

    When we checked out on Tuesday morning the front desk staff agreed to have 2 medium sized luggages stored in their baggage room because we were going to Kuala Lumpur that evening minus the extra luggage.. We picked it up at around 3AM Friday when we got back from KL and the front desk staff did not complain.

    By the way, there are 3 Value Hotels in Singapore so you have to clearly inform the cab driver you want to go the Value Hotel on Balestier Road.

    There are no coffee shop or restaurant facilities in the hotel so if you want to take breakfast there's a noodle house around the corner that opens at around 7AM or you can buy some snack foods and sandwiches at the 24-hour convenience store by the side entrance near the hotel lobby. Right across the hotel is a 7-11 store that's also open 24/7.

    The hotel provides 2 bottles of mineral water daily.

    There's a bus stop right in front of the hotel doorsteps so commuting to Orchard Road is only about 10 minutes ride and the bus to Vivo City in Harbour Front/ Sentosa is about 25 minutes away. There are several buses that stop every 10-15 minutes to take you to different routes. All routes are displayed in the bus stop.

    Overall, I would give the hotel a very satisfactory rating and I would recommend the hotel to travellers with average needs.
