On Monday morning, we woke up in Bangkok for the last time, and got ourselves ready to go. We ran our last few errands in town, bought Thai candy bars for little brothers, and that afternoon headed to the airport. We had to wait quite a while for our flight, but we finally flew back into Singapore, and arrived at our hotel at about 8:30 that night. I got dropped off at the hotel to get us through the check in process, while Michelle and Gracie stayed in the cab to run to the store before it closed, looking for one last thing Gracie was hoping to take home; some plates she had really loved.
That final night we stayed at the Singapore Marriot on Orchard Road. Orchard Road is the biggest shopping area of town, and while we had been gone, it had been all decked out for Christmas. It was absolutely beautiful. It reminded us that it would be Thanksgiving just 2 days after we arrived home.
Gracie and Michelle arrived back, and for the first time on the trip, we turned the TV on that last night. The movie "Final Destination 2" was on HBO, and it was interesting to see what parts they had to cut out in Singapore, even on HBO.
Then it was bedtime, getting ready for our 4:00am wake up call...
