    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

    Singapur - Tag 1

    September 2, 2016 in Singapore

    Willkommen in Singapur.
    Die Hitze hat uns direkt erschlagen und die Luftfeuchtigkeit war enorm hoch.
    Trotzdem begaben wir uns auf eine kleine Tour, um die Stadt ein wenig kennen zulernen.
    Unser erster Eindruck ist sehr positiv. Eine moderne Stadt, welche man bequem zu Fuß erkundschaften kann.
    Jedoch kam uns der Jetleg leider in die Quere und der Tag war damit für uns frühzeitig beendet. 🇸🇬💤

    Singapore, Day 3

    May 5 in Singapore

    Previous evening spent at Level 33, the world's highest rooftop brewery, with magical views of the Singapore skyline. From here you can watch the light and laser show in the Marina Bay.

    Back into the city today with a visit to Sentosa, Chinatown, and Little India.

    And another tour comes to an end. One that I would rate as one of the most memorable.

    welcome to the world

    July 21, 2006 in Singapore

    So i realise how keen everyone is to see the photos, and can't understand why they haven't been posted up yet but its been a long day and i'll try and tell you about it without falling asleep. (if you would rather skip the excuses and head straight for the photos just scroll down I wont be offended). So here we go, due to the excitement of last nights news and jet lag we ended up with about 5 hours sleep , which isn't too bad if you've been getting regular good nights sleep, which we haven't. First thing this morning we jumped into a cab and headed over to the Thomson Medical Centre to meet the latest member of the Wheeler clan and were there within 15 mins. When we found the room we knocked and were welcomed in by a very proud but extreemly tired looking Chris and were introduced to Saffron. Now at this point I should say its Stewart writing this blog and have been asked to say that "Saffron is the most beautiful and perfect thing in the world", by Ali, however I am far too manly and macho to share such sentiment (she so is though!). We stayed with Chris, Rebecca and Saffron for around an hour and Saffron pretty much slept through the whole experience as only a baby can. We then headed down the road to the nearest MRT station to get an underground train to Little India, half an hour later both swealtering in the humidity we decided it best to jump in a cab which cost little more than the train would have done. We arrived in Little India and found ourselves walking around the many indoor shoping complexes full to the brim with every kind of electrical gadget you could imagine, had I found heaven? We then went into one shop and asked about a webcam which we were informed was $49 dollars, which I considered a little expensive and told the shopkeeper we would look around and come back, this apparently was the perfect thing to say as the price suddenly became $35, it was at this stage I realised that this was truly heaven. We grabbed some food in the hawker centre (food court) downstairs which set us back all of £4 for 2 currys, a naan bread and enough rice for two, and headed off to try and find some premature baby clothes for Saffron who at 5lbs 6oz aparently was too small for all of her new born clothes. We spent some time looking around some traditional singapore shops such as mothercare and marks and spencers before realising that babys were only allowed clothes if they were 4lbs and under or over 7/12 lbs.
    At about 18:15 Saffron Wheeler was introduced to her new home and was subjected to more photos and more filming. We orderd a pizza and Chris and Rebecca decided to feed Saffron, it was shortly after this that Saffron started crying, and unsurprisingly continued to cry off and on for the next 5-6 hours occasionally settling for a while, before to the distress of a stressed and exahusted couple of parrents, started crying again. Chris and Rebecca finally decided to take Saffron back to the hospital to get her checked out about half an hour ago at 01:15. I'm sure she is just stressed out at how much of the world she has to take in but I don't disagree with the decision to take her back to the hospital as this just shows how much they both love their new baby daughter and would do anything to look after her. The moment I get any news I'll post up on here, but for now the moment you've been waiting for ........

    p.s. I appologise for the blurryness of the photos but it was very dark and we decided it best not to have the flash on in case we woke up Saffron.
