Today was the day I've been waiting for... the zoo! The Singapore Zoo is suposed to be one of the best zoos in the world and then afterwards Erin and I were going to go to the Night Safari.
We got up as usual and had breakfast together and got Erin sent off to work, then I decided I'd go over to the plaza (mall) across the street to see if I could find a new book. Well to my suprise this plaza doesnt just specialize in knock off clothing but lazy employees as well. None of the stores opened until 11:00 at the earliest. I had to catch the bus to the zoo at a 11:00 so that wasnt going to work.
While waiting at the bus infront of the hotel I got to watch all the sweet cars come through that stay at our hotel. There was even a Lotus which I've never actually seen before, so I had to obviously get a picture taken with it.
By the time I got back to the hotel it was still pouring, so I went back to the plaza to the book store. This was awesome because I had a few books in mind and the book store was about the size of a bedroom with shelves and shelves of book with no order. There was no organization between English books and other language, fiction and non fiction. So long story short I left and went to Borders.
By the time Erin got home it had stopped raining but was still cloudy so we thought we would wait on the Night Safari, we figured the animals wouldnt be out anyways due to the rain. Instead we headed down to Clark Quay, the place we went out the first night to go to the Singapore Food Festival.
After eating we walked around a looked at the shops that were around Clark Quay and enjoyed the scenery. There was Morrocan place that had a belly dancer so we stayed and watched her for awhile, pretty sure I could do it... Then I convinced Erin to try the hookah at another Morrocan place which was pretty amuzing.
