Fast Track Singapore Sling

Well – weekend came and went but boy was it the longest weekend of my

Started on Friday – after going the IT Fair in Zim I went the airport for
the evening flight to Singapore – in retrospect spending 21 hours on a plane
and 12 hours on Singapore soil may be a little over the top – but hey this
is me we are talking about!

Shockingly I managed to squeeze in what most vacationers would do over a
long weekend. First and foremost I was equipped for the heat (meant to have
been 32 degrees Celsius) and naturally I arrived in slip on’s and a T-shirt
- so as it should be – just for me – it RAINED! Like cats and dogs on a bad
day! Therefore the first of my limited Singapore dollars went into the
purchase of a rather large umbrella!!

Anyhow – in twelve hours I managed to visit the Singapore Museum and see the
Cartier Diamond exhibit (talk about bling bling…need to get me some of
that!), The Arts House (Spanish painters exhibit), The Mid Autumn Festival
in Chinatown, the Deepvali Festival in Little India, The Asian Civilisation
Museum, the Sri Mariamman Temple which happens to be the oldest (and
dirtiest by the looks of it) Hindu temple in Singapore (ironically located
in China town not Little India!!!!).

Not only did I get to know the MRT (Mass Rail Transport) system inside out
but I also went on a vow of no-food-only-desserts diet – shockingly I
survived on Chocolate cakes and ice creams!!! The highlight of this sugar
high was eating ‘the bomb’ chocolate dessert which was so famous it was
photographed and published – almost a sin to eat it!!

Last but not least the end of my day was finished off with hotel hopping
where I happily visited Raffles Hotel 41st FLOOR Bar and the Grand Hyatt
with a cliché Singapore Sling cocktail! (pathetically predictable but it had
to be done when in Singapore!!)

That’s me done for the weekend……………..
