SINGAPORE

Hello Everyone,
We are having an absolute ball here in Singapore. Obviously we got here OK and are safe and well.
All flights and details have gone very smoothly - Libby has done a wonderful job!!!
Motel here is exquisite - Swissotel The Stamford.
Have had a Trishaw tour of town - have seen Little India and had dinner last night in Chinatown. Some of the menus were rather different i.e.bullfrog, intestines etc but we chose very carefully and subsequently ended with a beautiful meal.
Been to Raffles Hotel - will return for a Singapore Sling. Lots of very expensive items to purchase........not for us!!!
Weather is very hot here...nearly died when we arrived in our jeans!!!! Spent the afternoon either lazing around by the pool in banana lounges yesterday OR sleeping (we were all exhausted after the flight!) Had lunch by the pool and a cocktail.
The shopping is unbelievable.......we might keep our spending for Phuket but walking around the centres is amazing.......Jason spotted a new watch for $250,000 consequently he has just brought one for $4.00.
Brayden is well and loving the attention "handsome boy" Enjoyed his 'coco pops' for breakfast and toast with honey (straight from the honey comb). He is looking forward to going to Sentosa today and on the Singapore Flyer......of course, wants to swim again!!!!
The most successful thing so far ..........Mel found a scrapbooking shop in less than 2 hours of being here which I perused whilst the boys did icecream (chocolate with choc bits, marshmallows and caramel)......not quite a movenpick yet!!!
Love to you all - until the next post.......maybe with photos....
Jason, Mel and Brayden
