      Day 44 Heading home

      October 13, 2023 in Singapore ⋅ ☁️ 31 °C

      We have had a few leisurely mornings but today took the cake. Our flight was at 7.30pm and we could check out late. We had bought some coconut buns (a bit odd but rather nice, cooked coconut centre in a soft white roll) and bananas. We had a bit of packing to do, lots of things that we could throw away like our plastic plates and endless receipts that we had accumulated from all over the place. We did that while watching a couple more episodes from series one of Outlander, Trisha’s Netflix has been very useful with all the smart tvs.

      We left about 12.30 and took a taxi to the airport, at this stage of our holiday taxis seem to be a much better option than public transport! The taxi had the aircon on so cool that I was pleased to get out into the heat for a few minutes.

      We were leaving from terminal 1 which had the cool water feature and huge mall. First stop was to a chocolate brownie shop for a really decadent treat. We took a couple of pics and then walked through the over bridge to terminal 2 to build up some steps but then caught the cute little train back. Then we got a bit carried away in the Turtle shop which had a number of cool things in it like the softest wee cuddly toys like those we had seen in Dubai, great variety of usb fans which could have been useful earlier and various stationery options. I had taken out $200 Singapore dollars when we arrived which we have shared. Turtle was great as we paid them with our remaining cash and the rest on our wise cards ie by phone tapping. We loooooove the phone tapping as the phones are always on us with the cards in a safe place.

      Just wandering around and then we noticed a croc shop. I had googled that in the mall we were at yesterday but hadn’t thought about one being here. Now that I have 3 pairs of crocs maybe it was time to decorate some lol. We went to several floors looking at the water feature. Then had to go back to Turtle as Caitlin had put in a request for a fox stuffed toy. Then I might have had to get one as well! Pillows on the flight you know.

      10,000 steps and 33 degrees outside. We spent less that 10 mins outside today though so that doesn’t really count. So we have a 7 hour flight to Sunday then 3 hours to Auckland. And hopefully John hasn’t disowned Trish and we will see him at the airport.

      Ciao ciao ciao!
