Foreign Fourens
8th Oct 2017 - Fourens to UK, France and more
Last day in Singapore

Both Susan and I had over active minds last night, probably due to the imminent close of our holiday and thinking of things back home. So a patchy sleep was had. Up at 0800 had breakfast then headed out on foot to Chinatown for a last shopping opportunity. Got some bargains and the girls and I had a massage which was nice. Sue couldn't waste those precious minutes while there were shop stalls to be checked out. Got back to our hotel for our late checkout just after 1 pm and packed our luggage for storing. We now have hours to spend before we have to go to the airport so we've had a poolside lunch and now the rain has gone and it's hot we're going to have a dip. It's all nearly over.

The pool was lovely and refreshing on a very tropical Singapore day. There were patches of stinging hot sun, about 34 degrees, then stormy showers would sweep through. The two girls spent so long in the water they were shrivelled prunes. But we've all rehydrated now. Susan found a way to finish of some of our Singapore money: new sandals for Mandolin and her😬 from the shopping centre next door. After we had a Singapore meal of Keow tang, spicy seafood noodles, quite delicious. We then returned to the hotel change rooms ready for our travel. Caught a taxi after 8 pm to the airport where we are waiting now as I write these few lines. We had a great little stay in Singapore and would be happy to come back again. Our Novotel hotel was excellently appointed with great facilities and customer service.  Soon we will be winging our way back to the Great Southern Land, our homeland.
