Hey there everyone!
It's been a while since our last blog entry, so we gotta give you a little update!
We arrived in Singapore at the morning of the 1st of June. When the train reached the Singapore border, we were a bit nervous, because we thought they might check us for drugs and open our bags... But nothing like that happened: the immigration officer was nice and they just x-rayed our backpacks. So after the whole border process (about 1 hour) we arrived at the KTM Singapore station, which is not very well conncted with the public transport system. No Singapore Dollars in our pockets and no ATM (Bankomat) in sight we just walked towards a busstation to ask a young chinese woman (about our age), how to get to the center. She was very nice told us the bus to the next subway station and even gave us coins. So our first impression of Singapore was totally different of what we've heard at home.
We made our way to an ATM and to the city center, where we found a nice hostel with free internet (we did lots of picture uploads there as you might remember). That afternoon we just spent hours in front of the computer, but even went to a big shopping mall for electronics, where Hias bought a cheap game package for his DS (more then 20 games on Micro SD hahaha. And had a beer in a Blues Bar, which had no lifemusic at that time and so it was absolutley boring!
The second day we spent in the Singapore Zoo. It was quite big and really nice, as it seemed they really tried to treat the animals, as good as they could. We also took some pictures there, but not to many, as we think pictures of animals in the zoo get quite boring to watch after some time... Anyways it was quite far from the center, so it was enough program for a full day. The evening was quite nice too, as we had some beers at the Backpackers Rooftop Bar!
On our last day in Singpore (and also our last day in Asia) we decided to do some sightseeing but not to long as we had to be at the Airport about 7am on the 4th of June! The Airport was quite nice (Free Internet!!!) and the flight to Australia was really cool as they had a great in flight entertainment!
Until next time!
