If there is a way to minimize jet lag I can assure you we didn't know it. After traveling for over 25.5 hours, we arrived in Singapore at midnight (11AM eastern time) while getting around 5 hours of interrupted sleep the entire last day. Understandably, the only thing we wanted to do the next day was recover; however, we were dismayed to learn we would get around 6 hours of sleep to be up for a cultural tour of Singapore at 9AM (8pm eastern time).

... for dinner in the area. Another wonderful evening of laughter and good food. So much fun.
We did pretty much the same thing the next day. Except my uncle took us out to dinner near where I used to live as a child. It was nice going down memory lane, Doesn't hurt that it is famous for being one of the best hawker centers in Singapore.

Concluding our day, we had dinner at Chinatown Food Street. How can we miss that place out? I had chicken rice and it was delicious! A must-have local dish!
