Where I stayed
What I did
Saw the Merlion
So I opened the door to my '6-bed mixed dormitory' at midday, and the room was pretty dark. The first thing I saw was someone’s rear in a white pair of pants; it was a girl bending over her bed (easy now). I walked into the room looking for my bed; it turned out there were 4 girls already in the room, 2 getting up and 2 still asleep. I’m not going to lie but it felt weird and like I was intruding, so I dropped my bags and went to the lounge for a bit. When the girls were finally awoke I got talking to 2 of them, Nina and Jenna, we decided we were going to go to the night safari later on. I pottered around for a bit until the time came; when it came it had been raining all day so we bailed as there was a large chance the animals would be hiding somewhere dry
The next day I checked out and walked into the rain to find my next hostel, which was very basic, but at £10 a night – including breakfast (pretty much bread and butter) it was fine, the owner was friendly and accommodating it was a bit of a shame leaving the last dorm which was a bit like something from Big Brother, but this new hostel (Fern Loft) did what it needed, unfortunately the people staying there weren’t really backpackers – there were people sort of living there looking for a job in Singapore, there were locals and that, so I didn’t meet anyone to hang out with really, my wang stayed in. After arriving I sat on my bed for a few hours reading and ting before I went downstairs to the bar for my ‘welcome drink’, turns out it has to be a soft drink
Ok this is long and you’re probably bored, but so am I. On my last day I pottered into town and got lost in a few malls, printed my ticket for Bali and then decided to go on one of those amphibious duck tours. It was good, I made a friend (he was about 10) and the tour guide was pretty much Brüno; saying things like "yer, super cool" and even “girl power” after sentences. I learnt some facts from him (some showcased above), like the wheel they have is the biggest in the world and 30m taller than the London eye. The Raffles hotel I mentioned earlier doesn’t have and rooms, only presidential suites. The Louis Vuitton shop near where the boat went is the first floating one, and has an underwater tunnel/entrance. He also said Singaporeans are the fastest walking people in the world and always in a rush, I don’t think this is true as I was always getting stuck behind people on the tube. Erm…Singapore is a new country (42 years old I think) and measures only 23x42km, diddy mans
I’m currently sat in Singapore airport waiting to fly and see Dan, Amy, Suzie and Stapes. Now that’s what I’m talkin’ ‘bout!
