Hi guys, how was your weekend? We started ours with no plans but with a last minute Monday AM flight out of Singapore for Joe, we decided to make a quick trip out of it. We spent most of our time walking around Chinatown, eating dinner and trying new-to-us Chinese desserts (where has snow-ice been my entire life?!). It was interesting to see how Singapore does Christmas, too. The main shopping district, Orchard Road, was exploding with decorations sponsored by Visa and other big brands and companies. Are Christmas decorations sponsored in the States? I can't recall but it definitely felt more tacky than festive. Blatant commercialism of Christmas aside, I love that city. It's so easy to enjoy, even if for 24 hours. The sunflower garden deck at the airport doesn't hurt it either.
