Singapore Sling

IMG_1197We started out the day with a bowl of tasty stuff in China town, and then headed to the see some of the Singapore Botanic Gardens.  The were pretty sweet and we spent quite a bit of time just wondering around trying not to get eaten by to many bugs.  But I’m not sure it matters any more, my legs and arms seem to just have a continual onslaught of bug bites.  But I got some funky little patches a few days ago and they seem to be doing relatively decent.

IMG_1248-EditAfter the gardens we headed to a temple, followed up by complete random wondering.  We went through Bugis Street, the largest street shopping location in Singapore which had a ton of cheap random shit, and was covered in tourist stuff.  After Bugis Street we decided to try to figure out how to find Little India without the use of a cab, so we jumped on a bus, and started on our way.  We didn’t really know where we were going, but had at least half an idea.  I really wish we had a better map of the city, the book is ok but nothing like a nice sized map with all the roads on it. After a slight detour we found it, so yes a cab would have been faster, but the bus worked out quite well.

IMG_1357After far to much walking around the city sight seeing, we headed back to the room for a quick rest so we wouldn’t pass out at 7pm tonight.  Then after a bit longer than needed we headed out for some drinks and a great view of the city. And on our way Nataly spotted a GOLD MINE at the hotel that I somehow missed.  A MAP of the CITY!!!  And actually a pretty dang good one at that, so at least now would could figure out where in the world we were at, and were our next destination was located without randomly guessing.

IMG_1387The view at the bar was great, and the drinks were tasty even if the price was a bit excessive, but the view was worth it and wasn’t much more than paying S$30 a ticket on the observation wheel. After a IMG_1418couple drinks we decided to check out the Merlion and then headed back to the room to make sure we’ll have enough energy for another day of sight seeing.
