HCAP Singapore gave me an experience I will never forget, because I had heard a lot about Singapore previously, but now I finally had a chance to put places and memories to words. From the amazing food, to the diverse cultures (Chinese, Tamil, Malay, and English!), to the breathtaking architecture (thinking about the Marina Bay Sands), Singapore is not a place I will ever forget, even though I only stayed for a week. I'm looking forward to going back someday!
