Smallest Homes In The World   It's not the size of the house - it's the way you live in it. The smallest 3-room HDB flat has a floor area of 60 square meters, or approximately 645 square feet. Our Social Studies classes have taught us how land-scarce Singapore is, and how we need to utilise our limited spaces well. We have already compiled a list of ways to maximise the space in your house, but the houses in this list make us look like utter novices.

Visit Hokkaido   Mount Iou - "Naked Mountain" in local Ainu lingo. It's an active volcano 510m tall. At the lower regions, crevices spew sulphur crystals.

It sits among the other trendy eateries, watering holes, and concept stores that populate Duxton Hill. Setting foot in the store, your first thought would be that Prawn Stars has an identity crisis -  despite their Caucasian servers, they do seafood tze char, but with Vietnamese and other Asian influences.  But Prawn Stars is based off a typical Melbournian dining experience, with a focus on fresh seafood and enhanced natural flavours - their Asian elements are inspired by immigrants.

Needless to say, Pulau Ubin wasn’t really my thing. But that was before I stepped foot onto this island again a few weekends ago. It was like stepping into a part of Singapore where time has stood still and life was much simpler. Little did we...

Sure, local SIM cards exist, and in the case of countries like Australia require complicated sign-up processes.

I only wish I had heard of Changi Recommends’ new Global Wifi Router earlier. Available at all terminals, these Wifi devices are easily accessible and convenient for any traveller. To connect, all you have to...
