"Hopelessly Lost" at National Orchid Garden

We slept for less than 3 hours after arriving late in Singapore and headed out to the National Orchid Garden by taking the MRT (subway)...and a bus...we did good! Chhimi fell in love....and I do mean LOOOOVE on looking at all the thousands of species of orchids there are in Singapore. Pictures will be posted soon. It was HOT & HUMID....but yet very enjoyable lah...3 hours to be exact on the time of enjoyability.

Now, we are experiencing jet-lag and are very tired and grumpy. We took a taxi to the Orchid Road 10 miles long road full of big name department stores such as Gucci, Channel, etc. to find good eats. Yup...you read it. Good EATS. We ate something called "Hokkien Fry Noodles" at the nearby Asian Mall....defintely NOT recommended. Then we headed over to the "Takahashi" centre to find something more appealing...and we did!!! Mmmmm! We ate little sticky rice "Teacheow' style...quite interesting. Then we ate something called a "Popiah" & "Sing" roll...kinda like Egg Rolls where one is friend and one is not along with some spicy chili sauce.....Chhimi really enjoyed that one!! But most of all...we are both way too THIRSTY to eat anything else....so dehydrated! Think we may be able to lose like 10 lbs each after this trip is done with all the humidity!!

Alright people, now we are going to explore the shopping center of "Great World City" since we couldn't get Gold Class tickets to see Shrek 2. Darn Singaporeans for loving movies as much as Chhimi and me!

Cheerio peeps...gotta enjoy our vacation instead of writing this blog.
