Definitely.

Have cash--American $20s and $50s--and be prepared to grease your way in.

K you rely on Google; I'll rely on my own experience as well as that of Singapore locals who travel there a few times a year.

That said, I didn't have to pay a bribe, but I did have the cash.

Looks very nice, particularly since it's not on the beach, but inland.

Edit: Doesn't currently participate in the points program.

Would love to. I feel like I didn't have nearly enough time, in part due to shabbos and the weather.
It's great having the shabbos app, but until it can be applied to transportation and techum issues, things remain challenging.

Bali is very cheap. Was like ten bucks or so for a week.

In SIN I rented a mifi device based on a bunch of factors. Was about $45.

I'm headed out to Bali next week, and will be there for two Shabbosim. There is no Chabad there, so I was wondering what my options were for Shabbos.

I'm under the impression that the options are kept on the dl, so PMs would also be appreciated if you are uncomfortable posting publicly. Thanks.
