Check out his guide to the city he now calls home.

Orchard Towers

"This is a spot you go to at 3/4AM. It's a place you would have never imagined in Singapore. Nickname is 'four floors of whores," however, it's not as seedy as it sounds. Bands play your dad's favourite songs all night long and you bump into all sorts of people from families, travellers or visiting DJs. It's weird and wonderful all mixed into one"

Bincho

"Noodle shop by day - Japanese restaurant by night"

Hong Lim Hawker Centre

Mustafa's

"This is weird and wonderful at the same time. Singapore Centre is split into 3 areas: Little India, Arab Ttreet and China Town. Each area has its on level of uniqueness to it.

Mustafa's is a shopping complex that is open 24 hrs and has everything that you need. I mean everything. Socks are placed next to lamps. Steaks next to watches. It's just an amazing experience. Go have a look for 15 mins and then eat the food that's around"

Camp Kilo

"Saturday/Sunday only. BBQ, good music, food and margaritas"

No Signboard Seafood

"Order chilli and black pepper crab"

Burnt Ends

"If you like meat - book in advance"

Haw Par Villa

"My favourite tourist spot in Singapore. Having been open for over a decade, the park is half family tomb, half shop of horrors. The infamous Ten Courts of Hell features small-scale tableaux that show human sinners being punished in gory and graphic detail"

Red Point Vinyl

"If you're a music lover this is your spot. It's by appointment only so ring ahead. You'll find old Cantonese disco tracks you never knew you couldn't live without"

RPM

"Go here and stay for a while. The bartender will be playing music you've never heard before whilst you get nicely warm with high quality saka"

Kilo Lounge

"The best club in Singapore bringing the best music and entertainment. Benji B, Yasmin, Talib Kweli, Nubya Garcia, Chromeo, Breakbot have all played there. Make sure you look online to see whats going on. Buy tickets in advance, the queues are a bitch"
