    ... looking young Manager was called, who basically told me that they did not give money to any old tramp who walked in, and to try another bank. I ignored her and used their external ATM. It worked: China 0, UK 1. We went back to the hotel for a quick shower and change, and ordered a taxi to the Zoo. The first taxi called by the hotel lobby boy, seemed to not know where the Zoo was, which we found unbelievable, and so we told him to let us out. The second Malay lady driver ...

    ... parts, to be presented with a bill for over $2500! The proprietor had graciously 'reduced' the final bill down to about $2200 and cut his own markup to 3%, but even still, this was way over our budget for spares. Despite our protests he was unwilling to accept any return and as we were leaving the next day we were forced to suck up a $1500 rip-off from the Australian supplier.

    ... evening. We meet mum & dad at Raffles for a 'Singapore Sling' and throw monkey nuts on the floor, a strange tradition! We then taxi to Clarke Quay, for a walk along the river to Boat Quay by the harbour. We enjoyed a seafood dinner, and after dinner drinks further along the harbour, making for a lovely evening to our first day in ...
