A Total TaiTai Tale

Tale of a Total TaiTai who was in Beijing & Beyond and is now in Singapore & Surroundings!

Bencoolen MRT station is the deepest MRT station in Singapore at 43m below street level.

The six-level underground station is only 22-meter wide as the space between buildings along the street is only 25 mètres. The interior walls are curvilinear that resembles canyon walls while earth-tone colors were used to represent the many layers of soil emphasizing the depth of space.

However I’ve been to a MRT station far deeper (2.5 times actually)…. can you guess where? (Answer here)

On a side note: Abesses Metro station in Paris at 36 meters below ground is not too far behind and the deepest station in Paris.

Time to say good bye to Paris.
It was nice seeing you in late summer (almost early fall). I enjoy my long walk, which I don’t do often in Singapore unless I want to be drenched in sweat but I still prefer Singapore MRT.

Until next time.

Last week hubby and I went on a little adventure and took the subway. Oooh!!

It wasn’t my first underground venture. I took it a couple of times when we lived in Beijing the first time but I mainly use the driver, taxis and I biked, a lot, everywhere.

Until recently we didn’t have a subway station in our (pre-suburb!) neighbor, but all changed last week and a subway line opened just a couple blocks away. It will be almost a direct shot for hubby to get to work. I would need to make a change to go to Sanlitun and technically we could go directly to the kids school too (albeit the stop there is not very close).

I don’t think it will replace our beloved little scooters but in the winter time it can be a great alternative to chasing taxi when it’s our day off the road.
