arrived at singapore and it took two hours longer than supposed to. got a taxi straight to dunlop street in little india and got well annoyed as all hostels were full!!!we called about a million and finally had to stay at a posh hotel- darn!! it was called the madras and was lovely! finally got sorted at about 10pm and went out for a curry- this seriously was the best curry ever! all the singaporean people are so friendly aswell. didn't really do much after that just went back to the hotel as very tired.
when we booked the hotel it said you got free breakfast so we went down and the plan was to eat as much free food as possible so we didn't spend loadsa m,oney on food- didn't do well as there was only bread- much funnier if u were there! at about two we got the tube and that to the singapore zoo. this is emant to be one of the best zoos. the singapore tubes are brill!the publis transport really puts england to shame. and just to let you know its a universal hing that bus drivers are always grumpy! once in the zoo it was pretty awesome. there were orangatangs just randomly walking about in this enclosure and swinging from the trees.the best bit was when the babons and one of them was actually playing with itself! the zoo had every single animal you could think of and it was massive. there was also an enclosure full of lemurs where they just walk up to you-(we have pics). then we ad a good ole kfc! after that we went to a different part to the night zoo. this was brilliant as all the animals were awake. you walk around on your own for a bit and see the rhinos and cats, then you get a guided tram tour, and it brill cause you get to spot so many of them. there was also a night show where the animals performed tricks- it wasn't cruel or nefin!
today we went to this little island just below singapore called sentosa. you get there by a dodgey cable car! the island itself is just a big tourist attraction thing. theres a wkd beach. the first place we went was the underwater world where theres an aquarium and theres a touching pool, where you just stick your hand in and touch the puffa fish and starfish. there was a tunnel you walk through with sharks and that swimming over your head! we saw loadsa nemos and doris! we then got the bus to the pink dolphin lagoon. and yes they are actually pink!they're born grey but loose there pigment as they get older and turn pink. being the big kid i am, i sat right at the front, and as soon as they said volunteer my arm shot up! so i got to walk along the beach in front of everyone whilst balancing a ball and dropping it whilst the dolphin done it perfect. i then got to see the dolphin on my own and feed it!! next the dolphins done a show which was good.
happy halloween! one day till oz!!
we went to this deep water centre and watched a dome movie, where the screen is in a dome shape,, pretty good. we then went to raffles, which is a posh famous hotel. we ordered a singapore sling each and it came to like 42 dollars!!nice though! full of buisness men getting very drunk! there was monkey nut shells everywhere which i found well weird??? went out 4 a few drinks and packed for oz!!!!!
singapore was brill, but more expensive than u think!
