Hi there parents.
I have passed on your thoughts, questions and well wishes to your super star kids – and they loved your comments and feedback.
As we have been so busy, we have not had time to respond to you, but we will make time to do that over the next few days.
For now, I will tell you that they are safe, happy and soaking it all up – including the 33°C sunshine. 😊
G’day from Singapore,
It was a HUGE day of exploring the sights and sounds of this beautiful city. Almong the way – between Little India and China Town, we had a fantastic tour of the city (with our guide – Alfred). We visited Old Parliament House, saw marina bay sands, enjoyed a peaceful river cruise, stopped for ice-creams and dumplings for lunch and eventually returned to the YMCA tired, but happy.
We had so much fun, we might just stay here a few more days…
After a very good sleep, we were up bright and early and enjoying breakfast at the Y-Cafe.
Now, we’re about to begin our cultural experience by exploring Little India, Chinatown and a cruise around the city.
Let the exploring begin…
We touched down in Singapore at 4.20pm – Singapore time.
Our wonderful 1896 tour representatives met us at the airport and after a quick drive, we arrived at our accommodation at Orchard Road’s YMCA.
We then walked across the road and found a place to eat dinner.
It’s now time for bed.
From all of us in Singapore, goodnight!
It’s finally here!
After much excitement (and a very early start), we all made it to the airport.
We are now about to board our nine hour flight to sunny Singapore – with a top temperature of 32° C upon arrival.
Away we go…
We’re exactly one week away from our 2017 trip to Singapore!
7 days to go…
Another day full of new experiences for our tripsters. We enjoyed a beautiful breakfast with the Orangutans before exploring the zoo. Later, a little down time at the Y before heading out to do some shopping amidst the hustle and bustle of the Bugis Market. Dinner was held at the Strait Chinese Restaurant in Chinatown.
An unbelievable day. A good night’s sleep followed by a big breakfast at the YMCA. Our first trip on the Mass Rapid Transit was a huge learning experience. We enjoyed a beautiful lunch at Food Republic and then it was off to Sentosa Island, Singapore’s entertainment hub. We discovered more about our host nation through the ‘Images of Singapore’ show, then we had a chance to relax and enjoy the other things on offer at Sentosa. We think the photos speak for themselves….
Yesterday we went to Tampines primary school. It was great – my legs got soooooo tired just walking up the stairs.
