Update: I wrote a bit more about Changi beach more here on my new photo blog.
Here are a few photos from Changi beach park, Singapore. I visited Singapore for the second time (first time with my parents) in May-June of 2017. We stayed with my uncle’s family in Tampines, Singapore and had a really good time.
We initially went to Japan, stayed there for 20 days and then visited Singapore for 10 days. This was my first time my dad traveled abroad.
Without much further ado, here are few photos I snapped from Changi beach park in Singapore. You can see airplanes flying in and out of Changi, right above your head.
I am a huge fan of airplanes and to state, I had a really wonderful time at Changi beach park. Changi beach park is accessible by bus and can be found here on Google Maps.
This is my first time sharing photos and writing on my travel life. I will be doing more of this soon. Look out for more photos from Singapore and photos from Japan!
Update: I have quickly rolled to using Gazette theme for my WordPress.com blog. Like Aditya mentioned in the comments, P2 theme is not meant for personal blogging.
I have always heard great news about WordPress P2’s theme being popular and used hugely by the folks at Automattic. This was back in my childhood days.
I am devoted to WordPress more than ever now – got a personal WordPress.com plan yesterday and I am writing down everything here.
Enabled P2 theme on this blog a few minutes back for fast-blogging. Let’s see how this goes.
It was just yesterday when I was rambling about how Tumblr offers custom domain mapping for free while WordPress.com does not. I am a huge fan of WordPress for the open-source contributions it has done to the world. Having used self-hosted WordPress sites for years, I am recently blown by how much has changed in the past few years on WordPress.com.
Automattic has shaped WordPress.com into a powerful medium since what I knew about WordPress.com a few years back.
Here are key reasons why I moved away from Tumblr to WordPress.com.
- Rich ecosystem. Interesting niche content that I can follow, subscribe to.
- Community forums. I love volunteering as a customer support member. Look at my participation with Google Top Contributors program. Also, a SUMO member with Mozilla, Support Support member with Firefox.
- Having been with self-hosted WordPress sites for long, adopting WordPress.com is easy and WordPress.com’s dashboard can serve as a single place for my new WordPress.com site and all other self-hosted WordPress sites I own.
- Clean mobile apps. Tumblr has one too, but I just don’t feel content in the Tumblr environment.
I am on the WordPress.com personal plan and it costs Rs 2400 per year. Decent enough. Not free as Tumblr though. But, helps connect with the right WordPress bloggers in the community.
Let me see how my experience with WordPress.com goes! If you have questions, ask on WordPress.com community forums and look out for my answer! 😉
