It was an exciting time to be in Singapore with the Chinese New Year celebrations!! Singapore is a mixture of an ethnic Malay population with a Chinese majority, as well as Indian and Arab immigrants. The city is very famous for it's food (millions of hawker stalls) and shopping.
We spent time wandering around Chinatown and Little India trying out every hawker center and visiting temples. A few of our favorite culinary experiences were Hainanese chicken rice and kaya (a yummy coconut jam). Although rapid transit made it very easy to get around the city, we spent a lot of time walking in the 90% humidity.
Shopping, shopping everywhere! I've never seen so many shopping centers in my life. And yes, finally my first Gap after four months. I had to go in! Brett got tired of shopping within a few moments, but there weren't too many other options of staying cool in between sights!
