Tuesday 11th August

Up and out at a decent time and were able to leave our bags at the hotel as we have a late night flight. 

Found a great cafe for breakfast - Marche Movenpick

Tim's breakfast - a bread basket and a cold meat and cheese platter - a bit European!
Craig and I shared a Bircher Muesli and a bread basket - delicious!They also had bowls of apples on the table you could help yourself to - great idea. 

Now we had some sustenance we got a taxi to Mt Faber to get the Cable car to Sentosa Island

We had a little walk around the top of the island and around the Merlion then hopped on the second stage of the Cable car which went across the island and down to Silosa Beach

 If we look hot, that's because we were! It was very hot and humid!

Silosa Beach

 There were these amazing sand sculptures for the Singapore 50 celebrations which were the day before we got there.

 We went into a little shop to get a drink and saw these cans of coke shaped like bottles! They were made and printed especially for the SG50 celebrations.

We stumbled across this Billabong shop down on the beach and they had a sale on which was convenient!

Lunch at one of the nice beach cafes
 Tim's first
 Craig's club sandwich - he said he would just have something light!

My fish burger - I didn't eat any of the bun, but was cheaper to buy this than the fish and chips lol

From the beach we hopped on the free Monorail back to Vivo City shopping mall for a look around the shops then a taxi back to Orchard Rd. Man are there some shopping malls on Orchard Rd!!

 There was even a spotlight!
Back to the hotel to collect our luggage then taxi to the Airport. We checked in to The Haven, a pay per use lounge, where we could have a much needed shower and freshen up after a hot sticky day in Singapore. Worth every cent!
 A big meal at Hard Rock Cafe before hopping on the A380 for the long 13hr trip to London.
 and no I didn't eat it all, gave the bread a flick!

This A380 had a small economy section upstairs which we were lucky enough to get seats in. Much quieter than downstairs and only 2 seats on the side so not as squashy. Flight pretty good, even though it was long.  
Stay tuned!
