We had a wander around China town, bought way too many nic naks- my backpack is actually going to explode soon what with the umbrella, walking stick, blow pipe, vases and many other things I'm trying to carry around!
We had tea at one of the hawker centres not far from our hostel tonight. Eating is such a sociable event out here- everyone seems to eat out- whole families with the kids in their pyjamas! It's so cheap so I guess it makes sense. I had onion roti's, a spring role, noodles with some veggies and chillie sauce and a peach and aloe vera drink all for 75p!! Craziness. Despite the cheap food, we have definitely noticed that prices are closer to home than anywhere else we've been. It's a sharp reminder of what we're coming back too. I'm going to have to remember not to haggle over 20p or try to get two t-shirts for the price of one in Topshop!
We're going out on the town tomorrow night to sample the infamous 'Singapore Sling' at Raffles Hotel. At something like $17 a drink, they better be good!
