Please don't kill me!! Please.....oh, thank God. I'm not dead. Yet. I thought for sure you guys were going to swarm all over me for not updating the blog. The truth is, I've been super busy. You're probably like "Okay Jade, you use that excuse way too many times. It's getting old". But it's the truth!! I've been doing amazing stuff that I can't wait to tell you all about - wink, wink.
As you can probably tell from by the title, this blog is about Singapore. Just off the bat, it's an amazing place, you all should definitely visit one day. The first part of coming into Singapore was very interesting. So interesting, that we were all up off the couch to watch - gasp.
The coast of Singapore is full to the brink of cargo ships. It was quite fun, in a dangerous way, to try and weave our way through all the massive boats. They can't slow down fast, so it's up to us to swerve out of the way if we are about to collide. As we're turning away from a ship, my mom says "Just imagine the amount of plastic on that huge thing." I could imagine it and it made me nervous to think how much plastic would be in the ocean if that thing tipped over.
Anyway, after near fatal misses of crashing, we arrive in Raffles Marina. We spend the rest of the day getting settled in and swimming in the pool. The next two weeks are a blur of dumplings, sushi, mochi, Indian food, malls, shopping, and a beautifully clean city. Singapore has so many amazing things to do, including hawker centers (the night market in Crazy Rich Asians), the biggest observation wheel in the world, Chinatown, Little India, etc. We go on a food tour (we're probably still working off those pounds) and a history tour. We explore the science of earthquakes and virtual reality in the science museum. We do so many amazing things....and you guys miss out!!! Ha ha! Suckers!
