Today we headed out in the morning to the Singapore Botanic Garden. It is a UNESCO world heritage site.
It was an easy subway ride to get to. In first entering, we found the gardens green but lacking other color. Then we got to the orchid area. They were truly beautiful.
On the way out, we made a reptilian friend.
Lunch was nearby, at a Michelin one star Peranakan restaurant, Candlenut, that Ellen was so excited about. The dishes were incredibly flavorful, I had a chicken thigh unlike any other. Ellen had prawn in coconut sauce.
We figured out a bus home, 19 stops, and it started raining the second we got on. Storm was just about over when we got back to the hotel.
We were supposed to go the Singapore Zoo for their night safari, until we found it was about a hour and a half to get there. We decided it was too far and would be difficult to get home and decided to skip it this time.
So we decided instead to hit a New York burger place, Black Tap. They are known for their burgers and CrazyShakes™️ (seriously, take a look). The burgers were pretty awesome but we went only for a classic shake.
Tomorrow we take the party to Penang, Malaysia for the last leg of the trip. It’s almost Christmas here, so I’ll wish everyone a merry Christmas! 🎄
Thanks to those who sent concerns about my stomach. After some thinking about what I had that Ellen didn’t, we believe that almonds bought from a market in Little India might have been the cause. Evidently, the US requires almonds to be pasteurized but that isn’t done everywhere. Regardless, I’m on the mend.
