Our first outing in Singapore was a nice walk by the river close to where we stay to get some lunch and withdrawl money.
The close-by food stall market was closed, so we went to a little local restaurant and didn’t really know how the picture-menu worked… We ended up choosing food by asking what the people around us had, and ordered that. We had was noodles, pork, water and sweet coffee.
Then we went to a big westernized shopping mall, got a little overwhelmed by the full-on city experience with big shops, Christmas decorations and sales-offers.
The place we’re staying at is very modern and comfortable, we have a kitchen (!), a washing maschine, a pool on the area and super fancy cafées on the bottom floor.
What seems to be nice with this city is the mix of green areas, the river and ocean, walking paths, city life and different food places.
Something we enjoy a lot is to have shifts in our life: city life and beach life, simple food and well-made reataurant dinners, lots of people and time alone, living in modern places and staying someplace more simple.
Tonight we’re taking it easy and tomorrow; we’ll see what happens!
