Room at Days Hotel in Singapore – Lost Passport & Travel Talk

Greetings,

Above is a video that I made the moment I got back to Singapore the other day. The video showcases my room at Days Hotel in Zhongshan Park, Singapore and then goes on to discuss a few other things. This hotel is a 3 star and reasonably priced for Singapore aka it’s good value in a city where the term value is often as common as seeing unicorns fly down the street; it happens just don’t hold your breath.  The Days Hotel is near a mall, several bus routes, includes free buffet breakfast, wifi and offers some slick views of the city. I’m here for a few days then, who knows?

Those other things discussed on the video include losing my passport and a reminder of what to do to ensure you don’t! Also I touch on the idea of living places where you’ll never even need a kitchen again and things of that nature. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, should I ever rent an apartment somewhere a compact to the point room like this is exactly what I need. Also, the place has a safe which I discuss in the video, how come hotels in 2013 don’t all have safes in every room? Also, how can some get away with charging for wifi? It seems criminal, I dare say.

I’ve got lots to do here in Singapore and last night’s Mexican was a really bad idea but the company was solid.

Thank you to Days Hotel for their hospitality, it’s appreciated and thoroughly enjoyed my time.

Tips hat,

    Been enjoying the posts, as usual. Can’t wait to see you pull off a fashion show on Little Corn, as I’m sure you’ve come away with real good ideas. Tranquilo’s would be a good place to host. Been jamming on planning our return trip to Nica in early 2014…

      Definitely have a fashion show on Little Corn Island and Tranquilo would be perfect. We’d feature “the art of minimalism” in dress and lifestyle. 😉

      Hopefully I’ll be there, toss some lines and down some beers, yes?

    Misplacing your passport is the worst feeling ever … it’s like a black hole of gloom opens up in your stomach and sucks all the happiness from your veins in less than 3.5 seconds.

    Did that in Korea when I was in the process of exiting the country and I must have turned the bleachiest shade of white ever. Happy ending: it was in a hidden pocket on my right leg. 🙂

    About the safe … you don’t worry that the staff has the ability to get into it? I made the mistake on one of my business trips to Beijing of “locking” my computer in the room safe one time — just one time because I was tired of schlepping it around during the few hours I had to myself and when I returned to work (was living in the Philippines) and powered down the machine after my first day back at work I got the “You are currently sharing files, if you wish to continue, click …” I’d never enabled that feature. When I was reading the online version of the China Daily News I saw a big and bold article about, “Five high level America Online Managers were in Beijing this week to …” Yep, stupid as hell mistake I could have made bringing my laptop without clearing everything off the hard drive. And their headline — high level? WTF? hahahaha … I know, they could have pulled that information down the moment I connected to the hotel network — back in 1999 it was still ethernet there, but I have always had a “fear” of hotel safes because someone at the hotel has to have access for the people that forget the PW or reset the PW and lock it never to open it again, etc. Maybe it’s just my own personal paranoia? Not sure, but I don’t use those in room safes unless I absolutely have no other option.
