All we did in Singapore was sleep until about midday, swim in the pool and go to the food markets.
One night we had a few beers and went to the biggest food centre - Newton - where the lady persuaded us we hadn't ordered enough food. In our tipsy state we ended up getting...chilli crab, chilli squid, kangkong (very spicy green vegetable) lemon chicken & fried rice - all portions big enough for 4 people, but there was just the two of us
Dom's sister and her husband took us out to lots of restaurants and bars, and we found a few of our own too. Our favourite was the ice bar - the first part is made of ice (hence the name!) so when the heat of singaopre gets too much then its the best place to go , although you can only spend about 2 mins in that part, but the back bar is nicely chilled.
However, it's impossible to get drunk in humid climates. A little bit merry is as far as it goes - it must be something to do with the way the body deals with the heat - the alcohol evaporates too quickly!
There's nothing much else to say about singapore, we didnt do any sightseeing, we just recuperated from india and spent time with Rowena & Andy ( Dom hasn't seen his sister for 5 years)
we went to a dance festival...!on a beach on an island off singapore (although in tru singapore style there was a barrier between the sea and the beach so noone could drown by swimming, and lifeguards and police patroling the other side just in case.) there were three searches before entry as well to check for drugs...so only legal fun to be had there
It was pretty funny, we danced to cheesy disco, and waited for Cash Money (big international hip hop dj) however, when he came on he played cheese like all the rest. There was an incredible thunder storm and everyone got drenched.
we came home on the first train at 8am, people going to work thought there'd been some kind og massacre as all these wide eyed wet people sat like zombies all over their usually deserted train...
once we've washed all our clothes and relaxed in the pool a bit more, we're off round Malaysia,
