We left Melaka around noon and didn't arrive into Singapore until 8pm! The bus journey lasted forever, thank goodness we downloaded movies and music onto our ipods. As we left Malaysia we had to stop and go through immigration and customs which took about an hour which wasn't so bad until we found out that the bus had left us! We tried to hop onto another tour bus to get into town but they wanted a small fortune so we took the local bus. From the bus stop we had to get a taxi to take us to chinatown but since we had no local currency the first driver wouldn't take us. The second taxi took us and drove us around until we found a money exchange and then dropped us off in chinatown. Stepping into the heart of chinatown with no place to stay and exhausted after a full day of travel wasn't exactly what we had hoped for. Lulu's Inn was the first place we walked by so we went in and took their late night promotion- in my midnight out by 9am $50. We're pretty sure it was some type of brothel. ha! Their brochure advertised a variety of escort services, each room had a full bed, flat screen tv, mirror in front of the bed and a corner stand up shower....who knows?! Then we ate delicious food from stalls- fresh fish, rice, stir fry veggies....mmm. We had a few beers and a couple games of conenct 4 and then crashed until the next morning. Next day we were off again to Jakarta where we booked another flight staight to Bali.
