What is an island, a country, a city?November 19, 2018 in Singapore ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C
It’s Singapore, of course! Our trip was a series of firsts; first time on Cathay Pacific (very nice); first time leaving at 1:20 a.m.; first time getting hit on the head by a suitcase (Brian and he’s ok); first time in Singapore and finally, first time at the ParkRoyal on Beach Road. It was warm and humid when we landed. The hotel is contemporary and very nice. The staff are fantastic. We splurged for the concierge level and already they are using our names when they see us.
After unpacking and having a shower, we went for a brief walk to stay awake. We are on the edge of the Arab district, Kampung Glam. As we wandered, we came upon a wedding procession. The Malasian bride was beautifhul. A long sleeved, high necked white wedding dress. They were followed into the reception by a percussion band and the wedding party, much to the delight of all of the tourists.
Returning to the hotel, we had a light dinner in the lounge. Then Melatonin and straight to bed.Read more
