Lora's Singapore Trip

A Fabulous Trip

  •  
    My brother-in-law on "Lora Watch" on the flights over. He is a good sport!

    I made it to Singapore

    The pool outside my sister's condo was gorgeous!

    Looks like a resort!

    Can you tell I loved the pool?

    First morning, trying a local favorite.This is how my eggs were served to me, not my best choice.
  •  
    This is Kaya Toast. It was a good choice.
  •  
    In the malls, parents rent animals for kids to ride on...not real ones...these have wheels.
  •  
    Everything is very expensive. Basically take 20% off the price tags to get the USA equivalent
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
    Education is not taken lightly. The malls have schools for weekends including violin instruction.
  •  
    Cute garbage can in the mall
