From staying at the Mitraa Hostel the first 2 nights, we decided to try a different type of accommodation, a little more high class.
Today we woke up with a cloudy forecast through our window at the Raffles Hotel. We loved our visit so much the day before and the service was so helpful that we decided to stay there for the night. Today was quite lazy, yet educational day at the Jurong Bird Park! It was not very nice weather so we thought it was an inside day today. We took the East West Green Line MRT from the hotel that goes straight to the Bird Park. We enjoyed seeing all the different types of birds. Ater the bird park we made our way back to the hotel and decided to check out the Raffles Hotel & Museum. On our tour we learned that the hotel and museum was built in 1896 by the Sarkies brothers. This tour ended an hour later and it was time for supper. We ate at the Raffles Grill, one of the dining halls in the hotel which served fabulous, gourmet meals. As we ate we sat by french windows overlooking the Palm Court. It was a french cuisine restaurant so we ordered a spread of baguettes, real butter, wine, cheese, and chicken kive. For desert we ordered chocolate raspberry mouse and by this time we were quite tuckered out for the evening. We went back to our hotel room and crashed! Good night!
