    An easy day in Singapore

    August 19 in Singapore

    We had a lovely quiet day locally, still experiencing yummy food. Bugis Street is pronounced Boogers! The fruit market even has durian which is stinky and banned from most places.

    We went to Orchard Road because mum wanted to see what it was like... It was a big fancy shopping street which we didn't get excited about, apart from a great big bookshop Ben had told us about. We each chose a couple of books. If you want to buy the huge fashion labels you will love orchard road but it wasn't our favourite experience.

    Then we went to Fatty's for dinner near our apartment, and mum and dad had pepper crab.

    Walking in the clouds

    August 17 in Singapore

    It was a hot and sticky day, and Ruby was a reluctant starter again, but we all had a great time in the end!

    With our new Singapore skills we caught the train and went to the Garden By The Bay, especially to the Cloud Forest which is a big high indoor rainforest. It was spectacular!! So cool and misty and just like a lost world (apart from all the people). The cool walkways and high plants felt like a movie set at times. One photo has a very different kind of plant, can you tell?

    There was a lot of education about the environment and water shortages and how we can reduce the impact of humans on the earth. That was good.

    Back to the super trees!

    August 18 in Singapore

    The super trees were fantastic at night. There was a very long wait to go on the sky walk, it looked like half of Singapore was there. So we enjoyed looking and photographing from the ground. It was beautiful.

    We came back to our apartment tired and happy. Tomorrow will be an easy day too.

    Singapore!

    August 16 in Singapore

    Movies on the plane, cute meal trays, very nice roads and cars, and we arrived at our apartment in Singapore. It's in an area with local markets and temples and food stalls. We met up with mum's cousin Ben who works in Singapore a lot, and showed us how to get around on the trains like the locals! Sam and Ruby had fun playing on the trains and platforms. We had dinner at the waterfront, and then we all got super tired. It's been a big few days! We'll do some sightseeing tomorrow and probably some swimming!Read more

    Little India then views up high

    August 18 in Singapore

    After a relaxing afternoon with a teeny bit more screen time we caught the train to Little India. It was so colourful and interesting but a bit smelly for us kids. We didn't like the coconut juice we tried. Ruby bought a beautiful Indian dress.

    Then we had a great time up on the 56th storey of the Marina Bay Sands hotel... You can see everything from there! The sun started to go down.

    Local shops for local people!

    August 18 in Singapore

    Hi! Today was actually a slower day for us but there are so many cool photos to share it will take 3 posts. We had a teeny bit of screen time then explored the local shops, temples and food markets. Mum decided to line up at the busiest stall even though we didn't know what they sold. Mum and Dad said it was the best lunch ever! We had rice.

    Trees that are really super.

    August 17 in Singapore

    Outside the cloud forest are the Super Trees! They are manmade structures but with plants growing on the outside. Some of them some you can go inside, and there is a high walkway between- it was closed today because of the storms predicted. We still loved them and will come back soon in the evening to have a different look!

    Lunch was fun, in a replica market Satay by the Bay, and Ruby and Sam ordered their own food. Mum was proud of us! Mum and Dad said their satay tray was the best ever.Read more

  • Day54

    Unser Tag begann mit einem super gutem Frühstück (der Frühstück-Standard in Asien ist im europäischen Sinne eher mäßig – Fleisch am Knochen ist normal 🙈). Los ging es dann in Kampong Glam, dem arabischem Viertel mit Moscheen, süßen Gassen, Street Art und richtig coolen Pop-Up Stores. In der Mittagspause beim Türken lernten wir einen Deutsch-Türken kennen, der seit einigen Jahren in Singapur lebt und viel über die Stadt und die Menschen berichten konnte! Weiter ging es über die Waterfront des Marina Bay Sands (Bootfahren in der Mall, bevor man bei Ferrari 🏎 einkauft, ist übrigens kein Problem 🚣‍♀️ ) zu den Gardens by the Bay, einfach spektakulär, was die dort angelegt haben. Nach der Light-Show, konnten wir mit Glück auch noch die Laser-Light-Show am Marina Bay schauen – die machte uns tatsächlich sprachlos 😍😍Read more

    Die Inder sind los …

    February 25 in Singapore

    … weil die heute alle frei haben – ist ja Sonntag. Dementsprechend voll waren die Straßen in Little India. Und bunt. Und schön. Und alles hat gut gerochen. Da brauchten wir mittags erst mal ne Pause am Hotelpool – nicht das Marina Bay Sands, aber immerhin im 5. Stock mit Blick auf Hochhäuser und den Singapur River.

    Singapore - Day 1

    July 21 in Singapore

    The beginning of our journey....

    Today we departed Brisbane at 0910 via Singapore Airlines with Richard & Rachel - our first time travelling with family. We even scored an upgrade to Premium Economy for the flight; what a luxury!
    We touched down in Changi at 1430 in the afternoon local time (1630 Brisbane time). It was beautifully warm & humid, a stark contrast to the cold morning we had woken to in Brisbane. We jumped in a cab & headed straight to our hotel, the Pan Pacific Singapore. After unpacking & taking in the views & our surroundings we headed out to explore the city. Our hotel was in a great location & within easy walking distance of all of the city attractions.

    The area was a hive of activity as we had arrived to a country wide rehersal for the upcoming 'National 'Day' celebrations (Singapore celebrates 53 years of independance on 9th August 2018); it seems that everyone get's involved, including the military. We walked to Boat Quay via the bay (& the famous Merlion statue) & settled in for dinner & drinks alongside the river; we had a great view of the CBD & were treated to an awesome aerial display by the airforce including fighter jets & a Chinook helicopter carrying the biggest flag I have ever seen! - Thai style crispy fried duck, sizzling beef & a few Singapore Slings 🍹were on the menu & did the job nicely.

    We walked back to our hotel with our bellies full & our eyes wide with wonder at the bright lights & bustling cityscape.
