SINGAPORE 2013

Included spending time with family , Jurong Bird Park, Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by The Bay, Raffles ,one visit 7th-21st April, 14 days in total

Arrived slightly earlier than expected due to a time change in our Quantas flight into Singapore that everyone knew about apart from us. Absolutely lovely to meet up with the newest Mr & Mrs Hellinger again and spend 2 weeks with them. So we have a much better feel for life in Singapore and it makes you feel closer to folk if you have seen where they live, eat and hang out.Singapore is a very modern country / city with fabulous architecture and eateries to die for. Someone coined the phrase that Singaporeans eat 24/7. Whilst staying with Doug & Phoenix in the lovely Geylang East we had the opportunity to see many of the tourist highlights whilst they were at work and see them in the evening for some lovely food. They looked after us so well. In the middle weekend we had a great family trip away across the border back into Malaysia & Melaka. See our diary and pictures both here and under Malaysia. Big love to Doug &Phoenix. We have been through Singapore many times in the past , 1995 & 2008 but never stayed so it was lovely to do so this time. After 2013 we have revisited in 2014 & 2019
