We made the most of the views and the weather by swimming a different times through each day. Our final day there we thought we would linger even longer in the atmosphere although it was a little busier due to it being Good Friday.
We lingered a little longer over macaroons and coffee....
Shared with friends over an Asian buffet for the final time ( this trip!!!)
We had such a memorable trip....albeit a very short one....special times with friends and what a huge blessing to have been gifted such a trip!
We will be back to savour more of the lush delights that Singapore has to offer that we didn't get anywhere near exploring on this trip.
Sorry for the flurry of posts I was just a little excited at revisiting such a fun trip...you know how it is once to you hit home ...it all seems a distant memory.
We spent some time exploring the hotel complex that also included the casino, huge shopping plaza,art science museum and the Bay area...of course we did some geocaching here as well.
Art Science museum..we just wandered around the outside.
The most fascinating water feature in the centre of the shopping plaza which also had the San pan rides through the middle.
We then headed to Sentosa Island for an explore with the few short hours we had.....over by cable car ( this would normally have tested the height phobias of some but the hotel pool had rid us of that)
Small reminders that it indeed was going to be Easter on our return home.
We headed back to Chinatown to do a little shopping....how could we not buy a teapot and cups from here?
A little up the way Derek was keen on some porcelain chopsticks...a Chansam and fan for Meg was requested....I could have spent so much time around here but travelling with others meant keep moving..
Yum Cha meant mastering chopsticks for me. ( I told you I don't get out much)
Next on the agenda... a fish spa for our feet!!!
This proved to be one of the funniest things we did...I am not sure about the reflexology advantages but the endorphins from laughter were very beneficial...definitely a must to do with friends....nowhere as much fun on your own.
This was not something you would try if you have any kind of foot hangup.....it pushed each one of us to the edge of our comfort zones.
Our final destination for the day was to the Night Safari....we had fun maneuvering the public transport system at peak hour but the journey was worth the end point.....such a great place we must return to with the kids one day...again the weather was so fantastic to be out and about in especially at night.
We arrived in the early evening and once we had got our head around our hotel we set off to find some food in Chinatown...
Chili crab was on the must have list....
Derek savored every last mouthful ...I enjoyed the morsels that he extracted and passed over to me so I could avoid the mess!
There was a distinct smell that filled air as we wandered and Derek recognised it from living in Malaysia as a small child.....
We tasted for old times sake...HMMMMM- I can see why they are a banned item to have in taxis, or enclosed premises....they stank and the taste wasn't much better...the locals just love them.
Our first night wasn't complete without a night time swim in the infinity pool...OMG it was mind blowing to be so high and see so much. The evening was so warm and still and hardly anyone around so late at night........
