Singapore- Day 3

Departure Day, so it was sort out the suitcase and pack the necessary in the hand luggage. Once done, luggage stored at the hotel for a 7.30pm pick up and the bill settled it was time not to waste my final day of the hols.
I wandered back to Chinatown with a view to catching the MRT to a bird sanctuary, but as I walked past a massage place a young man pointed out today's special and I found myself sat down for an hours worth of foot and shoulder treatment. Well, if I thought it was going to be a gentle rub with some oil whilst I nodded off into oblivion I was in for a shock. This guy was polite, charming and determined to put heart, soul and muscles into my aching limbs.
Anyway, duly beaten, I set off on the MRT to the Julong Bird Park for some more nature viewing and pic snapping.
I set off back to town to write a bit more of the blog and pick up suit number 3 from the tailors. The folks back home won't recognise me.
It was sad to be leaving, though doubtless it'll be finme to get back and see people, but I did think that if I went online and found my lottery numbers had come up, it'd be home for a laundry session, say hi to a few folk and then off to see more of the world. I am now more jealous of Michael Palin than before!
And so, dear readers, apart from one more entry to come, and that just the journey home, this blog nears its end. For those of you who have stuck with it.... there ought to be an award for you as well. Hope it's proved interesting and enlightling. I've enjoyed doing it, even though sometimes it was tricky not falling too many days behind, and might even take the whole thing and add to it one day as a more complete piece of work. Wonder if I've missed my vocation as a travel writer? Anyway, I'm determined to write up my next travels, whenever that might be, and I've some reviews of places visited to do, but for now, it's 'goodbye from me' as the programme said. Thanks to all of you who read and or made comments! Smiles to you all. :)
