    Singapore Zoo

    September 10, 2018 in Singapore ⋅ ☁️ 31 °C

    Singapore Zoo is really impressive!
    An early start to have breakfast with the orangutans. They were a a delight! Then the sea lion show was so much fun. Then the thunder and heavy downpour and despite umbrellas we were soaked. We sat under shelter till it slowed and then we started again. There were so many highlights so I’ll let some pics tell the story. We were all tired and came back to our room around 3.30 with good intentions of relaxing and Yes watching the replay of the panthers great win against the warriors in the first semi final. However Kaiyen and I both fell asleep after 39 minutes and slept till 7.30!! Up and off to the famous Maxwell Hawker Centre but most of the food stalls were closed by the time we arrived so we went round the corner to the Chinatown Food Street. We had a range of different dishes and were hoping to walk it off but most of the stalls and shooed were closed at that time so back to our room at midnight. This time tomorrow we’ll be on the flight to London.Read more

    Universal Studios Singapore

    Day two was for Kaiyen - ok we had some fun also. Breakfast at Starbucks near our hotel then we used the GRAB app to get a ride to Universal Studios. The morning started with more thunder and rain but by the time we arrived it had cleared up and it was great weather - it can be hot and humid in Singapore! Some pics and video of the day and then dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe. That was something when Kaiyen was asking who is John Lennon, Billy Joel, Rod Stewart and the list went on! We provided a quick history lesson going back to Elvis with some YouTube clips of the King in his heyday. She thought it was hilarious that girls her age were discouraged from listening to Elvis “because his music was the work of the devil”...Read more

    Gardens By The Bay

    Arrived at 1am in Singapore and had an easy first day. Up for a disappointing breakfast at 10am back to the room another quick nap and then a lovely lunch and out to GBB. Although it’s not rainy season we have thunder and rain for the 4 days here. The Gardens and light show were a delight.Read more
