After a surprisingly good night’s sleep, we woke up to an impressive breakfast spread served up at the YMCA hostel in Singapore. The food was spread out buffet-style, eggs, hash browns, fruit, cereal, hot dogs, beans, and salad. A variety of options!
We drove around the city for a bit and ended up in little India. Our driver and his friend are both Indian, but one from Malaysia and the other from Singapore. It was nice to have a local guide us through the Indian market, taking us “behind the scenes” where some men had just received a shipment of flowers from India and were making all sorts of beautiful decorations with them.
Lunch was in an open food court. There were many variations of noodles, chicken and rice, fruit juices, oh, and Herbal Crocodile Palm Soup. What??!! Coleman insisted he wanted to try it. No way. Plain rice was about it for him.
Singapore is known to have the world’s largest ferris wheel, called the Singapore Flyer. I’m not sure if it’s still called a ferris wheel when the “car” is all enclosed. Either way, it’s 541 feet high and gives you a view of Singapore and Malaysia as well. Totally amazing.
When it was time for dinner, my body was telling me it was time for bed, but we hung in there, getting more of a driving tour of the city. The architecture is beautiful, with so much color complimenting all the lush, green trees.
