Breakfast at 8am this morning - we are feeling fine and raring to go now. Same cabbage, fish and rice finished off with fruit but this morning we ate outside.

Then, off walking to find the cable car to take us over to Sentosa Island, via Tolido's for an iced blend - I had a mocha one and I think I'm hooked. 

 Along the way we accidentally happened upon Raffles and took some pics of ourselves reclining on the verandah furniture, imagining we were clad in white linen and were sipping gin and tonics.

Somehow we ended up at the Marina Bay Shoppes where we ate lunch followed by an ice cream, then got directions to Harbour Front. $26 buys you a return ticket to both Sentosa and over to Mt Faber

Sentosa is fantastic for families - fantastic shops and resorts to die for - everything, and I mean everything - to amuse the kids. The SEA aquarium and Universal studios, fake beaches, massive slides, gardens etc, etc.and a cleverly built, long mosaic water fountain stretching down the walkway next to the Merlion. We didn't see the old colonial buildings that still exist on Sentosa though; after lots of walking we began to fail and decided to take the cable car back and over to Mt Faber for tea.

We ordered roast chicken and belly pork and although the food was pretty ordinary, the staff, the surroundings and the view more than made up for it. And, Viv had her first Singapore Sling! (I had mine in Bangkok aged 21). Sitting up on Mt Faber looking over the harbour as the sun set.....we felt like queens of the world. AND we saw an eagle.

Other snippets of today: men washing windows four stories up, wearing harnesses. A woman with an umbrella for a hat, riding a bike. Lots of different flowers.
