    ... in Britain! We got off at the little india stop, now time to walk a bit further to our hotel, HOTEL 81 DICKSON! We could finally see it after about 5 minutes of walking. Not long but it doesnt take long for the heat to get to you here and for you to begin sweating profusely. The thunderstorm still trying to break through, it had nearly succeeded, it was going to be a big one!  We checked in and much to our disappointment there wasnt any laundry here.

We walked the streets looking at different things including shopping plazas and the fountain of wealth. ...

    ... Oh , and all kicked off with another chopstick madness with a Prosperity Salad! Sadly Stevie was still poorly and missed this meal too.
    Next day was Sunday and Stevie tentatively felt a bit better and anyway, couldn't bear the thought of being in Singapore and not eating all this food! We met up with Ah Chu and her three daughters Carina, Cecilia and Jasmine. Ah Chu babysat Kenji and Stevie for me when I lived in Singapore so that I could go back ...

    ... we noticed a heavily guarded house that didn't look like anything special except that it had two police on guard outside so when we got back to the hotel we asked about it and it turns out it is the Prime Ministers's house! It practically backs onto our hotel. Another thing we have noticed is how incredibly clean Singapore is, the friendly and happy atmosphere on the streets and how polite people are. For the first time on this trip, we had not one but three young ...
