Established in 2018, Annelle Digital has opened its doors to clients from around the world. In the spirit of global competence, our company celebrated its first year anniversary with a trip to Singapore. The team spent 4 days and 3 nights in Singapore from August 30 to September 2, staying at the Imperial Fragrance Hotel in Kallang.
The company sponsored the Universal Studios Singapore tickets, flight tickets, and accommodations for the team members. Our employees had the option to take their family with them, and they brought their children with them to share the experience.
Let’s take a look at their time in Singapore!
3-Day MRT Tourist Pass
To save time from lining up and buying tickets or topping up cards, the Annelle Digital team opted for the Singapore Tourist Pass Plus. It’s a baby blue card that allows you to ride an unlimited number of times for 3 days. They bought the passes because they wanted to rush in and out without lining up or running out of credits midway.
Imperial Fragrance Hotel
The first stop was the Imperial Fragrance Hotel in Penhas Road. From Changi Airport, they took an MRT to Lavender (green route) and walked from the station to the hotel. They stayed in a family suite.
They had dinner at the food place near the MRT station. There were no pictures of the food because the place had a strict no photography policy.
Little India is a place where the food and culture of India are celebrated. It is found in the heart of Singapore and can be easily accessed through the Little India MRT station (green route). Little India is a colorful place that has murals and a lot of other photo-worthy locations. The Annelle Digital team got the chance to buy souvenirs, and experience the delight of Indian food.
Chinatown is another cultural place that includes Chinatown Food Street and has restaurants that serve traditional food staples like noodles, satay, and Hainanese chicken rice. There were also souvenir shops sprawling around the area. The team took pictures of the food tasting.
Bugis Street is said to be Singapore’s most iconic place and has a lot of significant history to boast. This area used to be the Red District before WWII. You can also find the famous Bugis Street Market here and is said to be the largest, cheapest and best places to go shopping in Singapore. They bought souvenirs there and a lot of other affordable products.
A Merlion is known to be the official mascot of Singapore, showcasing a mythical creature with a lion’s head and fish’s body. The huge Merlion statue is a tourist attraction and can be found in front of Marina Bay. The team enjoyed the beautiful sunset view of Marina Bay, eating ice cream while watching the Merlion fountain.
Gardens by the Bay
Gardens by the Bay is a nature park and spans over 250 acres. They are also known as one of Singapore’s top attractions. It includes a Cloud Forest, Flower Dome and often depicts a mini-city filled with lush botanical.
The team visited the Gardens by the Bay that Saturday night, chancing upon the Mid-Autumn celebration and display. Aside from the colorful sculptures and lanterns, there were presentations, plays, songs, and dance. They also watched the lights and sounds display.
Universal Studios Singapore
Sunday morning, the team headed to Sentosa for the USS. Universal Studios Singapore is on the topmost floor of the Resorts World Singapore in Sentosa. USS had themed parts of the area like Hollywood, New York City, Sci-Fi City, Ancient Egypt, The Lost World, Far Far Away and Madagascar. The team purchased the unlimited photo booth ticket for memories.
After spending the weekend in Singapore, the team members prepare to go home to their respective cities. They had the chance to see the HSBC lights and sounds show at the Jewel in Changi Airport before boarding. It was a magical end to a fun-filled weekend.
