On our first day into Singapore we slept most of the day. Trains definitely don't make for good sleep. It was so noisy and the motion definitely didn't help. It's a good thing that we put t-shirts over the pillows because I noticed in the morning the pillows were being held together by pins! Needless to say, I was pretty tired by the time we got to the hotel. Of course, after dropping off our luggage, we headed to a nearby food court for some breakfast. I had forgotten my camera in the room so there aren't any pictures of what we got, but it was pretty standard jook and noodles.
|Our first stop after eating was to an MRT|
window to get our three-day passes for the metro.
I thought this card was so cute! Why can't BART
have cute cards like this?
We stayed at the Royal Plaza on Scotts Rd. in Singapore. It was a little far from the main area that we were visiting, but the metro system was so outstanding that it didn't really matter.
|I know I look like such a tourist as soon as I whip out my camera|
to take pictures of the hotel lobbies, but these are my memories!
Golden Mile hawker center that we had seen on No Reservations. As if we weren't asking for heart attacks before, we are now. We ordered two giant plates of mutton marrow bones and then some.
|Before we even figured out what we wanted to eat, Mr. and|
Mrs. Fong finished a plate of fish.
|More chicken rice. Nick enjoyed the chicken rice here the best|
even though we later went on to have it at a renown food
|The color of the mutton stained everything|
including our fingers. I dripped some on my
purse. It's a good thing that I had my Tide Pen
|All this food for three people!|
|The Lee family's clay pots.|
|Look how clean the metro station is.|
