SINGAPORE 16-17mar2013

We had a lovely weekend in Singapore with Tom and Barb,staying on their immaculate yacht Gosi in one degree 15 marina,on Sentosa Island. Sophie recieved a great overview of Singopore.
On Saturday we all got the MRT to chinatown,going to the terrific new Tooth Relic Buddhist Temple.Then at 4.30 joined a free walking tour of CBD Sophie found on line.started at Raffles place,then the posh riverfront Fullerton hotel,past pineapple convention centre,massive new cbd towers,colonial cricket ground,Armenian church and Hindu temple with vibrant service.So it was appropriate to have dinner in Little India.
Sunday kerry and Sophie went for early bike ride.We then caught Mrt to racecourse road,to see 3 temples- the buddhist yellow tiger,being the best.time for lunch at roadside cafe while the heavens opened- the abalone soup and the salted chicken were the specialties and were excellent.Heading for the majestic Museum of Asian Civilisations on riverfront,we came across coplourful St Patricks day celebrations with balloons,marching and bagpipes.the museum had 2 special Buddhism
 exhibitions .for dinner we went to a very local area of government highrise flats,to the Two Chefs retaurant,joined the queue,and then had a very lively meal.
Thanks for a great weekend Tom & Barb
