Day 2: Singapore | Around the World in 40 Days

We arrived in Singapore in the wee hours of the morning, when we got to the hotel (Holiday Inn Orchard City) we were told that they didn't have the twin queen-bed room as reserved, the only one they could give us was a room with a king size bed - which is not very convenient for a family of four. They promised to change the room for us in the morning, and as compensation they added late check-out and free breakfasts. We were too tired to argue, for the night J slept on the mattress they brought in and the rest of us slept in the King size bed which was actually quite roomy.

After six hours' sleep we felt fresh enough to explore. It took us a couple of go's to get the hang of the MRT system, and we got lost a few times, but it all worked out in the end!

It's been a long day but we enjoyed ourselves. Now that we have our room sorted out I'm looking forward to a goodnight's sleep.... bye for now!
