Singapore Symphonies

December 3, 2018

Singapore was brief but exceptional. Jay had an exam to write which meant that there was less time to explore. However, we managed to fit in the “must see” places… and we were blown away! The city is abuzz with businessmen and women and there are thousands of local eats on every corner. It is inspiringly innovative in building designs and concepts that we are not used to experiencing in a third world country.

Gardens by the bay was a highlight of our trip. We had seen the Super Tree’s featured on Planet Earth 2 and seeing them in real life left us in awe. We joined a crowd of people all lying on their backs to watch the lights follow a symphony which was just as spectacular.

Orchard mall is one of many shopping malls that has every designer label imaginable. Victoria was in her element!

There was a definite language barrier in some of the local “joints”. Victoria asked for a glass of water and got served boiling water (with ice) instead. Luckily she watched the process carefully before taking a sip.

Eating noodles, dim sum’s, chicken and rice all day can get tiring. We were craving western food between our study/blog breaks and this Burger King meal was too good not to capture.

Singapore was ridiculously expensive and our budget flew out the window. This was our last airport meal and an attempt to stretch the money we still had left. The restaurant offered the granola bowl but we made our own at a quater of the price.
