Where I stayed
Last day in Singapore was sadly ruined by clothes shopping. God, how I HATE, HATE, HATE clothes shopping! The produce of about 6 hrs of roaming big shopping malls and little streets was: 2 pairs black trousers suitable for work (from bl**dy Marks & Spencer's) which for some time I thought was going to be the limit of my success. But I managed to find a cotton top which is quite nice, though more suitable for the current weather out here than in the UK!
Men have it so easy when it comes to clothes shopping: want shirt, go to shirt shop, buy shirt in same size & shape as last time. Unfortunately men's shirts don't fit me so I have to go through the procedure of trying to find a shop which has a shirt which a) I like (difficult enough! So many have stupid patterns or frills or other stupid bits)), b) fits me - and as "tailored" ones seem to be in fashion and never fit I totally failed there. Yuk! I wish I could just wear t-shirts, jumpers and comfy trousers all the time.
Anyway, I eventually packed that in, went to the Sultan Mosque for a look around, had a Singapore Sling at Raffles Hotel. Much nicer things to do!
Then I went & picked up my bags, got the MRT (tube) to the airport & hung about for a bit reading "Shopaholic & Sister" which turned out maybe not to be the best choice as the heroine starts off by coming home from a long trip abroad to find her friends have other friends and her parents aren't that pleased to see her. Hmmm... still, at least I doubt I have a long-lost sister...
I managed to check in at 10pm (for a 5:50am flight) so was able to go to the
Transit Hotel (marvellous idea!) and hire a room for 6 hours and a sleep. Just woken up and off now to board the plane. Next stop Heathrow.
