Going Global

The four of us at Jurong Bird Park

Emily sent me an email one day letting me know about their upcoming trip to Indonesia. She also just wanted to let me know they purchased a stopover in Singapore. After 10 seconds of research, I informed Eliott that the flight to Singapore was about 8 hours and our dear friends would be there for 48 hours. Our desire to explore outside of Australia only heightened as we started looking at things to do and places to see in Singapore. The trip was booked.
We do this pose when playing Bunko, but it seemed appropriate for the Bird Park too.

Seeing people we know for the first time in 5 months was so refreshing. Exploring a foreign country with another married couple was nothing short of fantastic. We were able to go to the Bird Park and Singapore Zoo. We also saw The Lion King, SkyPark, and the Singapore Flyer.

We visited Little India in Singapore one afternoon and decided to eat at an Indian restaurant recommended by some missionaries Justin and Emily visited. The restaurant was called The Banana Leaf Apolo and it was delicious. We knew this place was legitimate when we noticed the Indian families choosing to eat at The Banana Leaf Apolo. We devoured tons of food and enjoyed one another's company. We started with chicken samosas and naan. The butter naan was the best I've ever had. We each got something different and shared a few bites. It was an Indian food feast for Foodie Freddies!
