Flag of Singapore  ,
Wednesday, July 4, 2012

We had four nights in Singapore and were lucky enough to stay with Charlie's friends Ben & Tina. They very kindly offered us their spare bedroom in their very luxurious penthouse apartment, situated in the heart of Singapore.

Singapore was quite a shock coming from Indonesia, everything on time, everything spotlessly clean and too add to this, we were sharing the apartment with Ben & Tina's three toddlers which all together created a very unusual environment for us.

We spent our four days wandering the various districts of the city, being wined and dined by Ben & Tina and trying to amuse the kids.

Our next stop was the Philippines and we did not get off to the best start as we were told we would not be allowed to board the flight as we did not have return flights. 

I don't think UK citizens fleeing to the Philippines via Singapore is a common problem, but we could not convince them to make an exception. So, we had to book our onward journey without being able to give much thought to how much time we needed in the Philippines or which port we would depart from, which was very frustrating.
