A very brief outline of a very packed first day before we pass out from tiredness!
12 hour flight, sooooooo long, felt really sick too n got a bit emotional, I was sick on the plane, but we were fine in the end!
arrived singapore airport 6 am here, shatterd. got our bags no problem and got our taxi to our hostel. so far so good but it was HOT! very pretty n clean tho here, and it wasnt wot we expected at all.
got to the hostel, really wanted crash out but by the time we unpacked half our bloody rucksacks to get clean stuff and wash stuff out and sorted ourselves (at this point really pissed off about the whole thing of livin out of a rucksack for 5 months! VERY VERY!) We met another girl stayin here and ended up headed to the beach. which took forever, via cable car and bus! (i was instantly lost but sam seemed to have some idea! oops!) but it was very nice n peaceful, i felt like poo but it was all good really.
eventually we headed back to the hostel, which by the way is just like some student gatherin place, its cool! we had a 2 hour sleep, which was amazing and then got up showerd, got dressed for the nite and went out on this 'food tour!'... tried lots of manky food including some weird bright green slime desert, which was ok, and some manky fish paste thing, erm, some congealed rice triangles, erm, lots of manky stuff. in the end we fed up on spicy noodles and drank lots of water! lol then we ended up in a bar that u play games in... bizzarre! we played pictionary thing with props, it was strange but funny i suppose. girls v boys, girls were victorious! there was 8 of us altogether, just folk we have met here in the hostel. then we went a bar called chevys which was crazy! full of chinese lookin folk lovin some proper rock classics, sung by a mexican lookin guy in a band on stage! madness! lol. everything is not wot u expect it to b, but nothing is terrible!
tomorro i think we are heading to little india and china town and also to a closer beach to doss for the day. money has been spent a little too freely today so we are being slightly more aware of it tomorro. lol.
off to bed now methinks, all is well, tho i need to finish repackin my rucksack... iv decided having absolutely everythin u use, clothes underwear, shoes, everythin, on the outside pockets is the way forward, that way u dont actually have to unpack ur bag wen u want sumthin! genius! (we shall see! lol)
missin u all, but we are far too busy to dwell on it rite now, today has bin the longest day EVER!
