Happy Monday+Singapore!

Hi and a very Happy Monday! I am happy to report from Singapore that my vacation has finally begun. My husband and I were welcomed to Singapore with a heavy rainfall which didn't stop until later in the evening. Then we decided to walk around to find a decent place to eat. Finding vegetarian food was a little hard, but eventually we did find a few places that served Asian food with no meat, fish and egg. After a hot, spicy dinner, we spent our evening enjoying live music by the local artists on the Orchard Street. We spent the next day visiting some touristy and some not so touristy spots. We both love walking, especially when we are travelling to a new place and discovering places which are not on the map. I couldn't miss going to the Chinatown and I'm glad that I did! I found owls!! There was this stone carving shop where everything was hand carved, and I saw many owl products including stone hand carved mail posts and bench. I wish I could bring one of these babies home with me.

I'm signing off for today, I have a flight to catch to Penang, Malaysia. I'll see you tomorrow. Take care!
