A calm weekend in Singapore

So much to do without leaving the city


This was the first weekend in a while that we decided to stay in Singapore. Although we live here, we don't have much opportunity to explore during the week, as classes take up a lot of our time and everyones schedules are so different. Thursday night we had a girls night, 4 of us went out to a bar with live music and got some pizza (yes, pizza in Singapore!). A night without the boys was alot of fun, it is much easier to just hangout and chat when we are in a group at a small place with good music.

On Saturday a group of us ventured down to Orchard Road, an area known for its upscale shopping malls and high end restaurants. The buildings in this area of town are very cool- the architecture is amazing. And to top it off, the street is lined with trees and grass areas. It's hard to capture in just one picture, but the whole street is beautiful. We ended the day Saturday at Sentosa, clearly one of our favorite spots in Singapore. There was a beach party/pool party that we went to Saturday night.
Sunday we decided to go into the downtown area of the city. Bailey and I caught the laser light show at Marina Bay, a show that occurs every night with music, fountains and lasers all choreographed. From there we ventured to the Singapore Flyer, the huge ferris wheel right along the bay. We haven't been on it yet, as we found out there are student discounts during the week and have decided to go back another time. However, any night spent along the water front at Marina Bay is a beautiful night, so we were not disappointed. The city lit up is a spectacular sight.
