Singpore, Our First Stop


We had a long layover in Taipai, Taiwan but our first official stop was Singapore!!
The air was thick, our bodies felt sticky and a nearby fire and thunderstorm had just past our way.
This tropical climate was welcoming us with arms wide open and was definitely
not letting us get by without a good sweat and wet shirt.

The first and only room we booked was in the red light district of Singapore,
where the rumor of great food and cheap rooms filled its expectations.
We enjoyed our first day there exploring the streets with the locals,
trying to figure out how to order their buffet style food.
Our goal was to find a food stall with lots of locals and join in on the good eats,
but the only problem was that once we found where we wanted to eat...
no one spoke English and they weren't necessarily fond of two strangers eating at their stall,
much to our surprise. After rejection from 2 food stalls with a very aggressive unwillingness
to help us order, we found the next stall and forced our way in, just pointed and handed over cash,
we were starving.  

After eating spicy noodles and dumplings we took on one of our favorite adventures, the city's transportation!
We always look like lost children when trying to figure out the transportation system for the first time
but when you finally get to where you want to be, you feel on top of the world. For the rest of the day
we took the Metro to downtown and visited one of the fanciest malls I've been to, to the harbor, and
then to this garden shown above.  Unfortunately, these are the only pictures I took there in Singapore,
I think just getting used to the time change and climate took enough energy out of me!
