7. Holiday Inn Atrium - For our 3 nights 2 days stay in Singapore, we were billeted at the beautiful Holiday Inn Atrium. Thanks, Hazel. Tip: Avail of the free Riverside Hotels' shuttle service.
That's me and Hazel looking at some maps -- finalizing our itinerary for the next 2 days.
8. Esplanade - Theatres by The Bay - The structure, its dome are actually upturned Durians, is most beautiful at night. When we first came to Esplanade (earlier in the day), we were somehow pulled to The Cookie Museum which sells, you guessed it, cookies. But not just plain cookies but delicious tasting cookies (you can actually sample some of them) but sadly, were quite expensive. So, we just had a snack of chocolate dipped strawberries and bananas (with nuts) at Chocz while listening to a group practicing their pieces for a concert (which was a welcome treat to our very tired feet). We came back that night and had dinner at the nearby Makasuntra Gluttons Bay-Singapore's best streetfood, where we had dinner of Satay and Roti with Cheese -- which Hazel found weird.
(My note: Hazel was too shy to pose for pictures)
10. Litter-free streets of Singapore - This is another reason to be impressed about Singapore. Friends told me that this small island state is soooo clean, I didn't realize that it was true until I saw it for myself. How I wish it would be the same in Manila *sigh* I wonder where they put all their trash? hmmm...
There are actually other sights or things that I've not included (our trip to Ikea or the other malls we went to) but actually, all I wanted to say is that --- Thank you, Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles, without you, there'd be no Singapore.
