Yesterday I arrived in Singapore after a 12 hour flight from Frankfurt (2 hour layover there). The weather was rainy and around 31 degrees Celsius, with like a gazillion percent humidity.
I took a cab to the place I was staying for the first night and was greeted by my nice host. She showed me some stuff on the map and after a quick shower I went to the city to get some dinner. My path lead me to Marina Bay Sands, where you’ll find a huge mall (what’s with all the huge buildings in Singapore?).
Originally I wanted to get some Dim Sum but I couldn’t find the place (yes, I got lost. Yes, in a mall.) so I opted for a nice Italian joint I found earlier on yelp. It’s called Pizzeria mozza and it has an Osteria next to it (with the same name).
I ordered an insalata mista and a margharita pizza, to see how the Italian skills of the Singaporeans are.
The salad was good but the dressing a tiny bit too strong.
After twenty minutes of waiting I finally got the margharita, which I found a bit too small actually. I’d give it a 7/10 because the dough was really good but the filling was something I could’ve done and I was always expect restaurants to give me a dish with something extra.
So, right now I’m “checked in” at the UWCSEA and already met a few interesting people, including the Ido Portal team (with the legend himself!). Jetlag hacking has been good so far and I’ll write a separate post on this as soon as I have the entire result spectrum 🙂
Wish me luck, movement camp is starting tomorrow! 🙂
(P.S. I’ll update this post with pictures and links as soon I’m home)
