South East Asia Stop #5: Singapore Redux

I feel I should finish this off. This is the end of Susan and Martha’s Excellent Adventure together. Our last stop. I’m not sure what will happen to the blog after this, but it will still be here. Possibly with a new name. Possibly with a new colour scheme. But you’ll still be able to read about the adventures. It will all still be here.

So our return to Singapore was done by a hiddeous over-night bus once again. It was only 1 bus instead of 3, but this one had a leak and dripped cold water onto Susan’s seat alllll night long. She moved to a conveniently vacant seat at the back, but still didn’t sleep a wink.

We arrived back at our hostel early in the morning, had to wait for the staff to get up before we could get in. Slept. Showered. Went to and All-You-Can-Eat-Chocolate-Buffet!!!

Yes, Singapore did end up making up for it’s past disastrousness in the end. We dressed up, went to a fancy hotel, and enjoyed one of the most ridiculously wonderful self-indulgences ever created. There was live string & piano music. There were 3 tables of chocolate - the choose-your-own-hot-chocolate table, the chocolate fondue table, and the everything else you could possibly imagine table. It contained everything from chocolate cake, chocolate squares, and cookies, to chocolate shots and grape soup. It. Was. Fantastic! Let’s just say our next DBC will have a few more creative ideas in it.

Sue and I flew home the next day. There was a lovely orchid garden in the airport, complete with a pond full of koi. It was probably 30°C.

We arrived in Canada at 7am the next day. There was a mix-up as to what terminal we were landing at, so Sue and I made $4.50 returning baggage carts in the meantime:) It was cold and snowy. I loved it!

Now Susan is in Canada, and I am in Australia again. It was an unforgettable year. I’m going to miss having Susan in roughly the same time zone as me. I think there will be one more “Excellent Adventure” post after all, so stay tuned.

    Martha, you left out some important details like, salmonella, 4 litre acid mishaps and the potential of HIV infection… and yes we miss you, that note you left on the kitchen whiteboard is still there. Be careful, love Dad.

    Could you elaborate on the 4 litre acid mishap, and the kitchen white board note? Apparently I’m getting the PG version…
