Singapore Zoo is by far the best Zoo in the World - every enclosure looked like a natural habitat, there were to bars, no wires and no mad animals.
The Zoo also happened to be huge!! The Zoo and the Night Safari are right next door to each other so we visited them both in the same day - we left around 11am and got home around 10.30pm - that's how big these places are!!
It also happened to rain on us again, a lot. My trousers turned a different colour and my Birks managed to dye my feet orange! I took a picture of the rain from a teeny shelter we found, have a look at it - it was bouncing all over the place!!
We saw some wonderful animals at both the Zoo and the Night Safari - I would highly recommend a vist if anyone is passing through Singapore on the way to Australia.
The day after the Zoo we did some shopping Singapore style! I bought new trainers and socks as mine are yukky!! After shopping we changed into our wonderful silk dresses and guess what - it was too big!!! I have lost about an inch of each hip (which is good cuz if it was only off 1 hip I would look really weird!!!) So my dress was a tad loose and it really shows in some of the pics so i have only posted the flattering ones!! Loads of people were looking at us in Raffles which is not at all like i imagined. I was expecting somewhere like the Waldorf Astoria in London .... not at all. The long bar could be an ordinary bar, with all the rules and regs in Singapore I was so suprised that people were eating nuts from the tables and throwing the shells on the floor - insurance nightmare!! I managed to slip on one and bump the table, fear not, I did not spill my singapore sling!! Which is in fact a very nice drink!
Yesterday we went to the Bird Park - again lovely enclosures, and lovely birds too!! We fed some very brightly coloured birds, can't remember their name, but i had loads of the buggers on me!! See the photos for an explanation!!
The other night we went to a "rock" club - it was in the basement of the Hilton hotel ... not a good start. It was the cleanest night club i have ever seen, clearly not a normal rock club. The band came on and did COVERS!!!! We stayed for 2 drinks and left. The drinks here are super expensive it's around 6 quid for a vodka and coke... eek!!
Last night we saw the world famous comedy hypnotist - Alan Bates from Liverpool, never heard of him myself, but it was a cracking night - I'd never seen a hypnotist before, but i'd definately go again.
Today we are spending lounging round pool and packing boxes to send more stuff home. Rachel and Joe are taking us out for Sushi tomorrow night for a farewell meal - I absolutley adore Sushi now - it's the cleanest safest food ever!!!
That's all now as we are going to the post office!
Bye bye xxx
