We had a great time the first day in Singapore hanging out with Aaron's mother and Auntie Sandra.
It was so great meeting all of his family and they were all so welcoming and hospitable.
On the second day in Singapore Aaron and his uncle went out and got some roti prata (sp?)
Which is kind of like an Indian crepe/croissant/tortilla thing.
My family loved it and they ate it a lot while we were out there.
Unfortunately being gluten free, I missed out on experiencing that part of the Singaporean culture:(
I brought a lot of my own snacks though, which I am glad I did!
Most places had little to nothing I could eat.
Aaron's Uncle peter took us out that day to explore downtown Singapore.
Every morning when we went outside it was a little misty/foggy.
I loved it, this photo makes it easier to tell. Do you see the airplane?? So neat!
One thing I didn't particularly love though was the heat, and humidity.
Kind of miserable.
My sister Angela at Auntie Sandra's flat
There were lots of Ferrel kitties around the city with no tails:(
I kept seeing this little guy around our flat, he tried to run away from me down in the gutter.
A little gecko, Aaron kept trying to pick it up but it was too small!
See that crazy building that looks like it has a ship on top?? There is an amazing pool up at the top that looks like it just drops off the edge. (pictures further down) Singapore is full of carrraaazzaaay awesome architecture!
Aaron & I in front of the "durian" inspired buildings. If you don't know what a durian is, consider yourself lucky!
( Don't mind my freaking white chubby legs, barf.)
My family & I in front of Singapore's skyline!
Okay, can I just tell you how amazing the plants are in Singapore??
Remember that building that had a giant boat looking thing on top of it? Well Aaron's uncle Peter got us tickets up to the top of it to look at the city! (How cool) 57 flights up a really scary and a claustrophobic elevator ride.. but SO worth it! Check out that port! So many boats.

Yeah that'd be the pool at the top of the hotel, crazy eh?
Another view of the pool.
When we came down Uncle Peter took us to the restaurant at the hotel.
They had orchids all over, my favourite flower of ALL time!
Anyways, the food at this place was off the hook!
Inside the hotel
Someones dessert plate, I can't remember who's.
Unfortunately they dug in and ate one before I could snap a picture. I was able to eat some stuff at the restaurant which made me stoked!
After lunch we took a monorail over to Sentosa.
Where we went to the beach.
This flower looked fake but for real, it was real!
What are these flowers called anyways? They are beautiful!
Seriously though, they look fake! I am in love with the colours!
My little China man swimmin' in the China Sea!
Little sis bakin' in the sun
The beach inside Sentosa
These flowers remind me of Dr. Seuss, I don't know why.
Crazy huge cable car line.
Did I ever tell you that I am terrified of cable cars?
This green stuff was on a lot of trees, I don't know what it is though. Any guesses?
Aaron eating another one of his favourite foods, "duck rice"
Later that night Aaron's uncle Tek took us out to the night safari.
Which was really cool, we rode around in the dark through the zoo to see the nocturnal animals. We watched an animal show as well, which is what this really blurry picture is of. No flash... Crappy photo. haha.
Anyways, sorry for the photo dump.
I hope you enjoyed the photos:)
