More from Singapore!

Had a great few days in Singapore, which is an amazing place. For the most part it is a very clean and busy city. There are fines for everything, from eating on trains to carrying a very smelly fruit called the Durian! We took a bus and a boat tour around the sights and spent the day at a man made beach on the Island of Sentosa.

Our hostel is in Little India, which is like India. Only little. The streets are filled with traders and it smells strongly of spices. It's interesting!

We went along to Calvary Singapore on Sunday morning where the people were very welcoming. After the service we had juice and rice cakes with relish! We plan to head to Raffles hotel later today then take a picnic to The Botanic Gardens.

A hawker centre is filled with loads of vendors selling bizarre foods such as pigs brains and fish eyes! We had chicken fried rice!
