Hello Everyone..We know that you all want an Australian blog but you'll have to wait and have our singapore one first!
We had four days in Singapore and it was absolutely boiling which we took advantage of as we knew the weather wouldnt be so hot when we got to Sydney. When we arrived at the airport, we were really clever and got the MRT which is like a tube thing/train thing to Little India where we decided to stay. We had to read all the maps and do a few line changes with our lifes on our back, you would of been really proud! It was like the London Underground...but not all underground, and not actually in London, so really that was a big fat lie! We ended up staying in our first dorm, 8 beds...You wouldn't believe that me and Jade chose the one that was occupied with 6 guys would you?! :P haha! They were all really nice, some from Germany, Switzerland and England. We ended up spending a bit of time with them all over the four days.
On the first day we joined in on a free group tour of the area which was good as we got our bearings, we also got to try out a few local food & beverages which included tea in a plastic bag drank through a straw, actually quite nice! On one of the days we went to Singapore Zoo, which was absolutely amazing. We watched two shows and saw lots of animals..typical of a normal zoo outing eh? But so much better! That night we decided to go out into town and go clubbing..but we missed the last MRT and didn't end up getting a cab until about 12! When we got there, we didn't really know what was going on and were looking a little bit lost so the bouncer guy helped us and let us in for free :D As soon as we walked in we felt really English..considering there were no others there and the place was filled with black haired Singaporians! Luckily they were all really friendly and soon we were dancing with a jug each of vodka & cranberry! mmm! We didn't stay too long so got a cab back to find all the people from our dorm drinking outside so stayed out with them and played spin round the pole and run down the road! Always fun! We ended up not going to bed till 5 and we had planned to get up the next morning quite early to go to Sentosa island so we had little sleep!
We ended up over sleeping a little but got up and made our way to Sentosa island which is a man made resort, kind of like an attraction park with beaches. We got there and basically slept all day on the beach and got burnt.. It was beautiful but felt really weird as it was all fake. We made our way back and had a really nice curry in the same restaurant that became our local for the time we were there (as they did beans on toast!) We had to be up at 5 the next morning to make our way to the airport to fly to Sydney so we were in bed by ten. But we weren't sleepy and had the giggles really bad so didn't get to sleep till late, plus the fact there were loads of new arrivals in our room around midnight so that didn't help the situation either!
Overall we really liked Singapore even though we were just staying in one little part and would of been nice to explore it a bit more. We were really sad to be leaving SE Asia but really excited for Australia, which by the way we are in love with, been here a week and its been awesome already!! But you'll have to wait to hear what we've been up to, sorry guys! We are leaving Sydney in the next couple of days and heading up north on the Oz Experience bus, we'll let you know all that's been going on soon!
Missing you all, and by the way we really enjoyed speaking to you mummys and daddys yesterday..and sausage and princess! 2 months down, 2 and a half to go! Hope your not missing us too much! aha! Love you all, Jadey and the newly converted Muslim xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
