Hello from Raffles, Singapore

Friday, September 14, 2012

Well here we are, last night in Singapore and where else would you stay but Raffles. LOL

Awesome day and evening, left the Novotel and came to Raffles. Gin slings and nibblies, then a walk around the shops, looked on Tiffany's. DD tried on some engagement rings....nothing happened though! Her partner did buy her a Louis Vuitton handbag - not a fake!

We had champagne at $40 a glass in the lomg bar, high tea, more shopping, played Euchre and then I had a gorgeous bath, rubbed oil into my legs and feet, filed and painted my nails!

Down for breakfast in the morning....8.15 is when we are meeting. Check out time is noon....we hope to make it a little later but we shall see. We are being picked up around 5pm to go to the airport ready for the flight home.

In the bathroom here there is a set of scales....I weighed myself in my clothes and I was the same as in the mornings at home with no clothes. Will get on the scales in the morning and see what they say. And then when I get home, it will be on the scales Monday morning and see what mine say!

emoticon Goodnight all.....

    I love the Raffles - but its over-priced these days!! Glad you missed the "Royal" visit there and all the fuss there would have been!!
Sounds like you missed a "Singapore Sling" in Raffles - that is an experience, as is "Afternoon Tea"!!
Singapore is a great place to shop too (or used to be!!)
Have a good flight home!!
