I did not have much expectations of the country/ town but in the end... it was ok....!!
After the eventful weekend the week before and while getting ready for the Sarawakian adventure, a town weekend was good!!!
Singapore is really nice as a city where you feel almost as if you were in Europe apart from the fact that there are a lot of Chinese and Indian people!!! In terms of organisation, cleanliness, all you hear is true!!!
There is architecture, history, museums as well as shopping malls, shopping malls and shopping malls!!! There are some really nice old chinese houses hidden in some streets which should not be forgotten. It is one of the charms of Singapore I think over KL.
We also went to the night zoo which as everyone says is very good and should be done in Sin!! We saw all but one of the animals that we were meant to see. They were all quite active.... Did the zoo give them some red bull before we arrived, I do not know!! The most impressive animal was the flying squirrel which is like squirrel because it has the head and the tail of one but then after that to me it's more like a bat!!!! It has wings and after it feels as if he has climbed high enough (using its legs) it just glides down, but we are not talking small distances here!! The maximum is 400m!!!! and it is not so scared of human as it glides pretty close to you!!!
Singapore is very nice and the mix of culture between western and asian is good but to my liking it is almost too western. I love the mess of KL with traffic jam and the stalls at the street corners...
