Motykas in Asia 2015 Part 5 - Singapore

Do you know what awesome friends are? 

Awesome friends are the ones that visit you halfway around the earth and when you say hey, you wanna go to Singapore? They say YES let's do it! So this is the story of our trip to Singapore for 2 days, 1 night.

You wouldn't believe it, we missed our flight!!! That's right. Silly me had too many itineraries in my email and I looked at the wrong flight. We ended up having to buy more tickets but luckily it was not Canadian airline price! After all that was settled we camped at Starbucks waiting for our new flight.




We flew with Air Asia and you always need to take the bus to get to the plane here in T3 Soekarno Hatta airport.




An hour and a half later, we arrived at Changi Airport Singapore, dubbed one of the best airports in the world.

 
In the monorail
 We had planned to take the hotel shuttle bus from the airport but we were told it was delayed, so we decided to take the MRT instead. The Capri Hotel we were staying at was only 1 stop away from the airport. As soon as you arrive in Singapore you can feel the difference in the atmosphere.


Inside the MRT
 MM saw this golden tree at the mall by the hotel and she wanted a picture :)


After we checked in, we walked over about 5 minutes away for Song Fa Bakuteh. Only MM and I ate there while the boys had sandwiches at a cafe next door.


Not wanting to lose any more time, as soon as we finished lunch we headed out to Gardens by The Bay. A must see if you are in Singapore and haven't been there.











After this picture here they named me Oko Yono...










Then we took the path to the Marina Bay Sands Mall...







After we walked around we proceeded to Clarke Quay for dinner...


And that was the end of our first day in Singapore... On the following day we did not have much time before we had to fly back to Jakarta and the only pictures I have are from the Butterfly Garden at the airport...




From here, we boarded the plane and went back to Jakarta...
Stay tuned for Part 6!
