It’s that time again…saying goodbye to friends who are disembarking…Irene & Alan and Trish & Trevor and many other good friends get off today…306 guests got off and 304 newbies got on and I don’t think we have met any of them before…boo hoo we are going to be billie-no-mates now…who will we have our 12 noon Corona with…sob, sob.
We were at a different port terminal than the last time we were in Singapore (Tuesday 3rd February 2015) so we took the shuttle to Marina Bay Sands Hotel where there is a huge shopping mall. The shops are unbelievable, if you made a list of all the most expensive clothes/bags/shoe brands in the world they had a shop in this Mall. They even had a Ferrari shop and a river running through the ground floor… the river had a bowl type contraption at one end that continuously poured water into the river so that it appeared to flow through the Mall… as I said, unbelievable.
We didn’t take our credit card with us or I could easily have bankrupted us in about 2 hours.
Dinner at the Grill tonight…fillet steak and jacket potato for me, fillet steak with peppercorn sauce and chips for Vance…we are eating simpler and simpler food as the days go by. The newbies however who are on for just 14 days have the lot…starters, mains and desserts…thy don’t have to worry about putting on too much weight.
