Arriving back into Singapore, excitement hit us, we couldn’t believe this was our final weekend after 7 months together! We pulled up to the Marriott on Orchard Road for another couple of nights of luxury. The hotel was certainly lovely, but not quite as nice as Bali, we had really been spoilt by that one! However, the breakfast in Singapore was delicious! (stuffing ourselves each morning so full that we didn’t eat again till dinner!) Singapore is certainly a very wealthy country… everywhere you looked on Orchard road you saw the top deisgner names one after another. (we pretended to be rich and window shop) There were so many malls to wander round you didn’t know which one to go in! With funds at a very minimal, we headed to the food court for our first night to pick up something cheap, and cheap it definitely was, but it was so delicious too! Opting for another early night to get into our dressing gowns and chill out infront of the tele. (i think all of our partying and exploring had come to an end!) The next day, the sun was shining, so the pool was calling our names! Not realising how hot it was, we managed to go a bit pink even with such a good tan already! That evening we headed to Raffles - the famous hotel and bar where everybody goes for a Singapore Sling cocktail. So we put our ‘poshest’ travelling outfits on and headed there for a rather nice cocktail! Followed by dinner in another food court afterwards…
For our third and final night in Singapore, Steph and I had been treat to a night in the Marina Bay Sands hotel, with the highest inifinity pool in the world on top of it! It certainly was a treat! It was beautiful. As soon as we got there we headed to the 57th floor to lie by the most photographed pool for the afternoon.And seeing as it was our last ‘full day’ it would have been rude not to have a beer or 3 whilst lying there! We weren’t sure what to do for our last night, but we found a movie on tele we had been wanting to see for aaaages. So with that in mind, we popped out for dinner in the mall attatched to the hotel. Wandered around it only to find an iceskating and a river with gondalas! After that, we headed out to the lake to watch the water and light show, which was pretty cool. Finally we headed back to our room, opened a bottle of rather nice champagne from the mini bar, toasted to the last 7 months of this incredible adventure and ordered the movie (think we might be getting old, or just poor!) ! It was a lovely last night!
I am writing this last entry from the airport, where we are both sitting waiting for seperate flights. I can’t believe how fast the last 7 months have gone, and how many incredible places we have been to! We have both loved every minute of it and certainly have millions of memories that will last a life time. Feeling a mixture of excitement, nerves and sadness to be leaving each other and starting on new adventures! We hope you have enjoyed reading about our travels. It has truly been incredible. Lots of love Laura and Steph.xo
