We have arrived!

Day 1

sunny 35 °C
View Singapore on jcjj's travel map.

So we have arrived in Singapore! It was pretty easy since all we needed to get in was our passports. We arrived at 8:59am after a looooooooong flight from Calgary, AB. Once we landed Courtney was starving and had to get food. At the airport we had to convert currency from Canadian dollars to Singapore dollars. The exchange rate is similar to canadian dollars - for every $1.00 it is $1.3 in Singapore Dollars. While exchanging our currency the receptionist spoke English, the main language but the intercom system was broadcasting in Malay which is the national language.

We took a taxi from the airport to the hotel. The 4 of us hung around the hotel for the day, checked out some scenery, went for a walk, talked to the hotel staff and we met some cool guys from Vancouver staying at our hotel. We all had a nap because we were exhausted from the traveling. It is getting late and almost time for bed were going to watch a movie and wind down, tomorrow is going to be a long and exciting day!
