Our Singapore Trip 2008

Singapore was our last holiday for the year and incidently it was Meow's honeymoon destination too. They were here a few days before us, but we didnt want to intrude into their holiday so we went right after them. Christmas season is a nice time to visit Singapore. All the streets were decked out, it was christmassy all over! We did some christmas shopping and some serious 'makan' session with Uncle Johnathan and the family.

We had lunch at the White Dog at Vivo City with mom's buddies. Thankyou Carol and Allison for a beautiful lunch!

All of us ate almost everything on the menu. It was a full western course with spectacular views of the doulos right outside!
Dad with highlight of the menu - Pork Knuckles!

Mom enjoying the pizza! Really delicious pizza sandwiched with lots of layers of ham and cheese.
Nigel had the 1 foot long hotdog. Look at the presentation!
Every kid in Singapore has a handheld toy and Nigel made friends really fast. Here you can see the Doulos docked right outside.

When in Singapore - Must visit the zoo. It's a mini zoo compared to the Malaysian zoo, but nevertheless a beautiful attraction. It was a really long queue but it was really fun. Nigel had a chance to go for a pony ride at the Kid's Kingdom corner, a new addition to the zoo since we were here 2 years back.

Tram rides around the zoo.

Stan & Nigel on the tram.

The malls and the streets were all decked out in Christmas splendour. 1st class deco all the way!

At Bugis Junction you'll see fancy rickshaws and street performers!

On the double decker bus!Nigel was so excited to get on a double decker bus, we were snapping photos like a bunch of 'ulu's!

Uncle John took us to a nice local chinese seafood restaurant for salt baked crabs! Alistair you were right, it was really really really good!

Thanks Unlce John for 2 nights of dinner! We must buy you a good dinner this Chinese New Year. Looking forward to taking you makan-makan soon.

One of the reasons why I like Singapore is the stash shopping. I'll always stop by at Spotlight for crafty things like this big bag of buttons I got for the NNC anniversary stash exchange!

I found this craft shop in China town called the Golden Dragon. They sell clover brand things and mom paid for the stash here for my Christmas and Birthday presents!!! How lucky!!!

Daiso is a must visit in Singapore too. I think The Curve also has a Daiso but apparently they don't seem to have half the things the Singapore Daiso has. Everything was 2 Singapore dollars!

More yarn from Spotlight! I've already started my crochet with these yummy yarns.
