Melaka was such a gorgeous city, but we saw all that was to be seen and this morning we moved on and took a bus to Singapore.The journey from Melaka to Singapore was supposedly four and a half hours! The bus was modern and comfy and in no time we saw that we were coming through the Malaysian border city of Johor Baru, we all got off the bus and went through Malaysian immigration then back on, once on the otherside of the bridge we jumped off again, this time armed with our bags and belongings and proceded through Singapore immigration, the queues there were unreal and it was so slow, would you believe that when we finally got stamped in and went to get back on our bus it was gone!! Well, what can you do really but laugh, at the same time though we were thinking how are we going to get into the city - we only had Malaysian Ringgits and np Singapore Dollars yet!!

Matt spoke to a friendly policeman who helped us out and was so kind, he put us on another bus bound for the city centre. We arrived at the golden mile shopping complex and bus depot about an hour late, which wasnt so bad, we walked about a kilometre to the tube known here as MRT station and jumped on three tubes to get us to the residential area which we decided to stay in.

So this trip, we are not in the city centre, we are within easy distance though on the main MRT line, its actually a really nice area where we are, its local, and tonight we went to a huge Hawker centre (basically a big eating area with plastic tables and chairs, and lots of food vendors selling all different types of local foods) and enjoyed chicken and noodle soup in a coconut milk sauce and a few Tigers of course!!

We shall be busy this time round, as there is tons to see here in Singapore, and of course we shall be making the final preparations for our trip to Australia on Monday!
We shall update again before then though with Singapore picces and more info!

So, here we are back where we started, we have done our full Asian tour and now we are sitting back in civilised Singapore! Its hard to believe that we were here back in April and since then have travelled through Hong Kong, China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand twice and Malaysia, it has been fantastic we have loved it. Bring on Australia...

Hugs
