Singapore Luxury Apartment on a Budget

Singapore Luxury Apartment on a Budget


Welcome back to our channel.
My name is Jordi and this is Hyekyong Two years ago, we quit our jobs and left our home in South Korea to do one of the things we liked the most To travel We have been backpacking for the past two years and we still didn’t get tired Maybe It’s because instead of rushing to sightseeing spots, we prefer to travel slow, stay as long as we can in a place and learn how life is there Rather than visitors, we prefer to experience new places as locals. We don’t plan much ahead and we are always welcoming new opportunities One of these opportunities was spending a few weeks in a city that we always wanted to visit Well, not just visiting but to experience the daily life Welcome to our new series. We are the Lifetime Travelmates and
this is living in Singapore for one month Actually, we stayed in Singapore for more than a month if you ask how many days it’s 47 days in total spending no money on accommodation. How is that possible? Singapore is one of the most expensive city to live in and we stayed in a luxury condo with swimming pools and gym with an Incredible view of the city from the balcony and we paid no money for that living one month in Singapore gave us the chance to explore the city, try as much food as we wanted and relax at home without worrying about changing places. You might wonder how did he do that? In today’s episode. We are going to find out the answer The thing is we shared a place with two housemates. They were generous, curious, playful and very cute.
Let us introduce them to you. They are Luna and Neko. Wait a minute. They are not people.
they are… cats Yes, they’re cats what we did in Singapore was
house sitting House sitting is an incredible way to experience a different country Especially if you are animal lovers like us We have been using TrustedHousesitters You can check so many opportunities all around the world taking care of pets, being with them in a real home and
experiencing local life like we do Check the link on the description There is also a mobile app for TrustedHousesitters to make all the communication and managing a profile and all more conveniently When we were traveling in England Actually, we were moving from place to place while house sitting which was amazing experience Anyway, we found this opportunity to stay in Singapore more than a month with these lovely cats We were like, oh my god! if you know us, you know, how much we love cats Well, we love all animals, but especially cats I just want to touch you cutieeeeee Oh~~~~~ softy, softy We had a good experience in England, but still it was cold and we really missed warm weather No hat, no jacket, no long-sleeved t-shirt, which means less weight in our backpack So we flew to Singapore and here we are! Reaction! Reaction! So tender! Well, let’s leave the food part for other episodes and let’s focus more on house sitting Here’s our daily routine in Singapore Good morning, feed the cats play with them cuddle them Oh, now It’s time for the cats to take a nap

that’s for me feed the cats play with them cuddle them Oh, now it’s time for the cats to take a nap
then let’s explore the city Good morning, wait, wait, wait, wait! Really?
Is that all we did? Yes, pretty much well, every three or four days, we sent messages with photos and videos to the owner just to let them know everything is okay and wonderful. And we also washed the cat toilet and makes it nice and clean That’s all Easy-peasy! And of course, we always kept the house tidy like it’s our home We really loved being with them, playing with them, and sleeping with them They were like our new family. Even though we really loved staying home with them and working. It didn’t stop us from exploring the city The location of the house was perfect There was a bus stop right in front a condo complex and buses were coming constantly and the metro station was in only five minutes walking distance By using public transportation, we could go anywhere we wanted. Gardens by the bay Botanical Garden the food centers Marina Bay Chinatown Bugis Haji Lane Singapore Zoo Museums You name it! And in addition to that, there was a hawker Center right across the street. When we felt lazy cooking, we just went there and tried the variety of food in a hawker Center called Newton food center It turns out it is the famous one in the popular movie. Crazy, rich, asians! Well, I’m just Asian. One of our favorite dish in Newton Hawker Center was this one So I am supposed to dip this? Hyekyong: Yeah, cut it half
cut it half Oh, it’s so soft so excited right now, you know? I am afraid it’s gonna be too hot It’s powerful! Oh my god! And this is sweet! It’s super nice combination Hyekyong: what do you think? This is sweet, it’s strange! Let me try without the sweet It’s nice but I wanna try without the… distraction Hyekyong: I told you very nice I can’t wait for the meat. Not only the food center but also we had a shopping center in a walking distance The mall was not as big or fancy as the ones in other area, but it was big enough to get things done There were so many restaurants, retail stores, clothes shops, supermarket, electronic shop There were so many things to see.
We could have spent a whole day there And one of our favorite places there was
the Ya Kun Kaya Toast Kaya toast is a coconut jam, a must try food in Singapore Ya Kun is one of the most popular places to get this jam with their signature menu item: the Kaya Toast The best way to eat this is to dip it in a soft boiled egg mixed with soy sauce. I think there are two! OOPS! Yeah, I felt it was a bit too thick. very nice! I could eat this everyday So sweet, so nice very nice And then we have this… iced honey lemon Nothing special But there was something very special
for Jordi Not bad But apart from this, there is no cool boardgames for adults I think Jordi says he’s here to check the board games but I don’t think it’s the reason (Spiderman On a secret mission to find a board game) What are you talking about? See? He’s here to enjoy! He’s like a kid Black Panther ********** I see children… here. We’re the only adults here I don’t know why… What I am doing here I wanna be kid again you know? Hyekyong: You are a kid Ah…but I cannot play with them Oh, wow! End game Interesting! Captain Marvel! Everybody with the new suit! Hyekyong: you want that for your birthday? No Hyekyong: You already saw that I can’t stop… I am with you sis… Well, we couldn’t find a good board game but we found some other things to play with We are so grateful for the opportunity to stay this long period of time in Singapore specially knowing how expensive it is living in Singapore House sitting is a total game changer for travelers like us who love to be with animals staying in one place to enjoy the local life experiences without having to spend lots of money That’s all for today.
