The trip getting there was LONG.... hours and hours of flying, I had a nice seat but it certainly was very very long. Yes, making a trip halfway around the world is a luxury and flying there is a luxury problem I realize : )
We used to live in Manila some 12 years ago and so I had been to Singapore before but I had forgotten how expensive everything is. Grief, in the hotel the buffet breakfast was $40, how can that possibly be? How can any breakfast cost that much?
The one thing that was great, was the hot tea. It comes just like in the UK in a little pot. I love hot tea with milk and here in Houston that is not very common so I had a tremendous time drinking tea.
I saw some beautiful sights and because it's a very safe place I could venture out on my own on the MRT everyday while Martijn was at work. I went to China Town and Little India where beautiful fabrics are sold... I didn't buy any... there were so many to choose from that I got confused... I really should have... too late.
Cheers & I'm happy to be back!
