Singapore, No More

Howdy guys, I’m in semi-tropical Singapore where the temperature is a warm 30 degrees outside, but about 20(?) degrees inside. It’s been an interesting few days, we’ve done plenty of touristy things, but the one thing I don’t like about ‘tours’ isTourists. They all seem to be wanting their own way, want to get there first and see everything first, even though the amount of time is the same… So we went to Sentosa island which is south of Singapore and went to the Butterfly and Insect Park,Carlsberg SkytowerUnderwaterworld, and we saw the Water Show. We also got a city tour and went on the Night Safari. There’s a few things about Singapore which are kinda cool. Most of the buildings are pretty well designed, with Feng Shui in mind. The pedestrian crossings are funny as well. They have a counter on them so you know how long you have left to cross the road. Oh and a bird pooped on my sister in the street, that was real funny, well not for her, but yeah :). I wanted to pick up some figurines and stuff, but they seemed kinda expensive. I didn’t really get any souvenirs here, but there will be plenty of that in Hong Kong. p.s. the time below is local Singapore time, which is 3 hours behind AEDST, that’s what we’re in right?? p.p.s for those that are reading this and aren’t on my forums yet, which seems like most of you, get on!!! I haven’t had a lot of time to tweak them and contribute myself, but I will be there!!

Fly Away CHONGie

Thanks to the wonders of technology and SAMSUNG I can now update the CHONGLAND blog from Sydney International Airport. (How cool is that!!) Here’s my itenerary for those who are interested:

  • 2005/01/17 12:55 PM Fly from Sydney to Singapore 
  • 2005/01/20 13:00 PM Fly from Singapore to Hong Kong 
  • 2005/02/03 ??:?? ?M Fly from Hong Kong to Sydney via Singapore 

Sure enough I’ll miss people here. I’ve tried to catch up with people over the last week, with little success, but of the people I did get to catch up with, and the new people I’ve met, all the time was enjoyable and, even though I haven’t even left yet, I can’t wait to get back and catch up again… Expect some more from me in the next few days, unless I can’t get to the net by some unfortunate incident.
