Leaving UK onward to Singapore

I can picture flying Dragons

last day in UK started brilliantly and got worse as the day went on !! we started the day by checking our LOTTO bought for Annie by my brother brian and we won £42 !! naturally we gave brian half..We said the teary goodbyes and caught the Manchester Airport train 1st Class BUT at Preston we were invaded and the carriage was downgraded due to an accident and the cabin was filled to overfolowing,fortunately we had our seats first !! Arriving at the Airport our connecting time to Heathrow was 90 mins delayed giving us a few minutes to spare afore we caught our Singapore flight (13 hr duration )the flight was a little bumpy but the lovely stewardess made up for it simply by being very friendly .Fortunately our luggage went straight from Manchester to Singapore which saved a lot of hassle changing planes at Manchester.

Futuristic


SINGAPORE…my last visit here a few years ago wasn,t all that impressed BUT how times change !The Hotel FURAMA is great with a pubs happy hour from 5pm to 9 pm (2 for 1) I asked for a light evening meal consisting of a mini burger and was presented with FOUR !! vever the less very tasty.We got out of bed at 9 am on the Saturday and booked a few trips.We made our own way to Garden by the Bay and what an awesome place !! Giant shaped metal tree have been erected and plants have been intertwined around the metal structures and in years to come the Metal will be completley hidden by plants !!! (two with a lift to take us around the tree tops on a magnificent walkway) the views were incredible especially the 3 tiered hotel and the HUGE ferrris wheel that is 165 metres high and built on top of a shopping centre, that takes 30 mins to rotate (like,but bigger than the London Eye) After our draining walk we ventured into the 3 tired hotel that even has a canal running thru it and row boats can be hired !! A comic convention was in full flow and the kids all dressed as characters (anime and hentai are very popular with Asians) and were fantastic ! Annie wouldnt let me go into the convention tho !! Taxis are fairly cheap here too In the evening we had a river cruise with a meal the cruise was good the food wasnt great , we met up with a Sydney couple Debbie & Michael who are doing a 60 day around Asia trip !! We were treated to a 5 minute firework show and a musical fountain in the distance< Laser beams were shot into the night sky and the city background view was magnificent .This day has been full on and very tiring BUT well worth the effort !

Annie loves gardens


The garden metal trees are like a scene from Avatar !!

Will soon be covered in foliage
