We went to Singapore with our great friends Barb and Barry for Easter. I was a bit of a drag with my leg had to get on and off planes in wheelchairs and after walking for a while had to go back to Hotel and do RICE but still managed to have a great time.

This is part of the view from our Hotel room and in foreground are two of my favourite things. My sewing bag and dragonfruit.

The new Casino being built. We have watched this go up from ground level over the years.

More of the view from our room.

I love this view. If you click on it you will see two sides of Singapore ... the old and the new mixed together. Along the front of high rise is the beautiful old terrace houses of Boat Harbor.

The very beautiful Fullerton Hotel at night. It is a restored old Post Office.

The view outside the bathroom window of our room. Unfortunately there was no way I could get in that bath!!!!!

The Hotel pool. Very nice!!! Easy to get into with a bit of help!!!

As I said it was Easter. The Hotel made these gorgeous eggs and also had a giant bunny for the children to follow on egg hunt. They were all very excited.

My favorite was this one. How amazing!!!!!!

Some artwork at the Hotel

Of course here is Barb and I at local Quilt Shop

A very beautiful restaurant we went to one night. It is called Indochine and is Vietnamese food.

This was another night at a local seafood restaurant.

As you can see I didn't lose my appetite!!!!!! Singapore Chilli Crab. YUM!!!!!!!!!

..... and YUMMO!!!!!!! I got this Claw!!!!!!!

This was another night at Newton Circus. These are Banana prawns which we washed down with Tiger Beer.
But just in case you think all I did was shop, eat and drink I did manage to get some work done too!!!!!!
