Stop-Over : Singapore

April 11, 2009
Landed in Singapore on time. I have a whole day stop-over before
my flight to Denpasar, Bali. So, I decided to stay in the Transit Hotel
at Changi Airport, so I can freshen up, take a nap and use the pool:

After a dip in the pool, I went to visit the city of Singapore. Since I only have a couple of hours to spare, I decided to visit Bugis where my hubby, Bart & I used to live two years ago. Here I am taking the Singapore subway from the airport. The Singapore trains are very efficient and clean.





In Bugis, there are lots of shops and restaurants:


These are typical Singapore style Shophouses:
