Singapore Part 1

Sunday, Feb 3 -back dated post.

Sorry my dear readers, have been back for almost 2 months and I have not posted pixs of my trip. Will be posting in stages.

Arrived in Singapore on Sunday, Feb 3 an hour early. Goodness, 11 plus hours for a flight to SG, that's a first and it was all because of a very strong tail wind!

Liana was late because she didnt check the timing and also she got played out the last time. She had to wait 3 hours cos the plane was delayed in London.

Anyway it was too bad, she and Roy got to the airport in record time, picked me up, went home showered and then we went out.

Went to have Dim Sum somewhere in near Mustafa called Swee Choon. Food was not too bad and although I dont really like paus, the salted egg paus were heavenly!

Dinner with my aunties and uncles from the Wee Clan - my father's side!
We had dinner at Pan Pacific Orchard (The old Negara Hotel) and the restaurant is called 1 The Claymore.
They serve a buffet dinner and also have an a la carte menu. The a la carte section has Penang specialities like Assam Laska (best - the gravy was nice and thick), Hokkien Prawn noodles, Penang Char Kuey Teow,  Rojak, to name a few and then they have Steak and fish dishes as well. These are all taster sizes but all very well done!

These were some of the buffet selection. And oh yes, they have seafood like lobster, crabs, crayfish and sushi!

Reunion Dinner with my uncles and their families from my mother's side. We had dinner at Seafood International at East Coast Parkway and we were lucky my auntie managed to book the 7pm slot. They had 3 sittings - 5, 7 and 9!
