Singapore is hot. I felt like i was going to melt....! the food made everything stink bad... actually it may be the people!
the plane journey was pretty cool! went on teh new airbus it was awsomeeeeeeeee. amasing itv/video/gamesystem!!!!! sat with jess and jenny! food was actually rpetty gooodddd aswelll!!!! it even thundered whilst we were on the plane =]
Singpore, is such a pretty place, very hot and had a mini rainstorm... we were allll sooo tiered... but since we arrived there early morning we had a whole day to hold ourselves awake for.... the hotel rooms wernt ready so we went for a "wander" around singapore. ended up visiting a refurbished temple and eating at the foodpoisioning captial of the world! its been so much fun.. from the monk that attempted to scam us. to the chinese people that stare at us so badly!!! :O we went to little china town, except it wasnt a regular one, it was full of rubbish plastic chinese rubbish!
we eneded up in mcdonalds cause it was soo hot! OREO mcflurry and the LARGEST coke i have ever seen in my life (Y)....
then back to the hotel to check in, went swimming in the pool... met up the rest of the group for our first propper group meeting... then some of the girls in the skippies went out for a meal where they gave uys our coke for free.... and i saw a lambourghini!!! (Y)
.... early night (9.15 bed!)..... late morning when i realised that despite setting my alarm for 6:30, my phone was still on english timeeee! so half 7 me and jenny have to rush to breakfast which we should have been at by then, then back on up to pack our bags.... and the bus tour!
not much i can say about that.,.. again,.. open top very hot! went on a "frog" boat was awsomeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.. it could go on land and waterrrr (Y) then we had a tour of singapore by open top bus.... and back to the bus base to look around the mini rainforest and up to a resturant called sargent peppers... was reallllyyy nice!
then... with 5mins to go we decided it was our last chance to order the infamous singapore sling cocktaill.. so we quickly ordered and drank one (y) then paid and legged it.. giggling and hyper from the combination of alcohol, ice cream and fooood! =]
then back to the hotel... where 50 ozkids, and 4 leaders attempted to get changed, and pack there bag for the plane journey to melbourne....
exhausted i fell asleep on the airconditioned bus drapped across to chairs.....
airport.. well it was an airport, had chinese fooooood to eat, was lovely! and we sat, and talked and made friends with chinese people...
... but we made better friends on board the plane when we were sat behind 3 aussies... =] who were really nice and (Y) was exciting to meet real australians....
NOTE TO REECE AND MAX: the plane games system had pokemon gold, silver and yellow!!!! and loads of oldschool ninetndo games!!!
....When the plane touched down in melbourne, i can honestly say it was the prettyest city! gorgeous stunning, sparkling... pitch black.. which quickly faded to dawn and a sweet bluey grey sky that lit up the streets of melbourne!!!
