Thumbs Up To Royal Hotel, Singapore...

School holidays have begun since last Friday. My girl and I went to Singapore last Friday... first time both of us went alone by bus at 9.30pm.... we didn't know what to expect... and the journey finally ended in Golden Mile.... it was 5.30am when we reached there. Both of us were like standing there waiting for the time to reach 6am because by then, the taxi fares were cheaper.

But after standing 10 minutes, feeling so tired and sleepy, I beh tahan already, we stopped a cab, it was a new mercedes, lantak la... we just got into it. The uncle taxi told us that our hotel was quite nearby only, not too expensive, less than $10sg. Okay la... not too bad.. at least the cabs there don't cut throat!

Upon reaching the hotel lobby, I prayerfully hope that the receptionist allowed us to check in, it was only 6am then... I told her that my girl and I were very sleepy and tired and ... and.. we really needed the room then. So nice of her, she pitied both of us.. hahaha... and gave us the room key after checking in.

Thumbs Up to Royal Hotel, Singapore!

there were 3 beds initially in the room..
housekeeper came and took back one after we checked in
and in less than 15 min. both of us were in slumberland..

next morning we snapped a bit here and there..
while waiting for Aaron to arrive...

then when he came, he took us to Orchard Road

People here there and everywhere...
Singapore seems to be overpopulated now..

what's this...

a lot to see in Orchard Road ...
spent a few hours there.. window shopping!

next is Vivo City...

our friend here always like to pose...

at the balcony of Vivo..

then to Clark Quay...
walked till our feet surrendered!

Love the night scene here...
phew... it was good to be back in the hotel
after a long long walk!!

  5. I was in Singapore early this month :) And I also think it's overpopulated but I just love the country. Everything is fast, the escalator, the train, etc.. Very clean too! Now I'm missing the uncle selling bread with ice-cream on Orchard Road...

  7. Royal Hotel? Where is that? Golden Mile is actually Beach Road...but it isn't there. It's along Newton...and it's certainly quite far from Orchard - not walking distance, that's for sure.How much per night?

    I love Singapore...but don't wanna go anymore - too expensive.
