Singapore Day 3

Moving on

Bus to Gardens by the Bay to see the conservatories. They were spectacular, especially the Mist House. Again entrance was free courtesy of Singapore Airlines. We saw some of the outside gardens but not all. You could spend all day here and we couldn’t spare the time.

After this we caught yet another hop on/off bus to Chinatown where we had lunch in the outside food street. It was very busy with locals eating and doing their shopping. Being a Sunday everywhere was busy. Lots of people picnicking in parks.

Back to the hotel to sort out our cases and check everything is in the right place. I keep misplacing things and I’m blaming jet lag, nothing to do with old age 😜

Vacated room at 7pm after paying to extend and now out again for yet another meal and walk. After sampling the local cuisine we decided to eat something different and happened on a nice cocktail and burger bar. Not your ordinary burgers 🍔. Lots of choice and really delicious as were the crispy chips. I did try to compensate with a g& t instead of wine, asking for slimline tonic. It appears Singapore have never heard of slimline, after asking everywhere we went.😱
Back to the hotel to await our transfer timed for 10pm. Driver on time and a pleasant ride to the airport.
Airport check in was fine. Passport control was weird and not well organised. Went through after 2 people checked passports. We were then in the duty free departure lounge. Wondered why our hand baggage hadn’t been scanned. This is done at the gate. Everything went okay and we were only 20 mins late taking off.
Silk air (sister airline to SA) was not a patch on Singapore Airlines. There was only Business Class and Economy, no Premium . Did get some patchy sleep but flight quite turbulent. They couldn’t serve hot drinks with breakfast which was not only lukewarm but not very appetising. Not to worry I’ve eaten so much in the last 3 days glad I’m missing Monday’s weigh-in!
