Orchids and excess

Another Busy day in Singapore. Visited the Botanical Gardens. The National Orchid Garden was the highlight there. The photos don’t do these amazing flowers justice – so colourful and varied in structure. Then back into the city to explore Chinatown. Had lunch at a fabulous restaurant in Smith Street – black pepper beef and Thai-style fried chicken. Delicious. Later we had drinks at Asia’s highest bar, the New Asia Bar – on the 70th floor of the Swissotel. Very expensive drinks but the view was spectacular. Finally we staggered off to Chijmes and ended up at a place called Insomnia – live bands and more expensive drinks… I think tomorrow will be a quiet one.
