The day began with a metro train trip to Chinatown and pork buns.
These were not just steamed, but also seared for a crusty outside. Tasty!
These pigeons had found the motherlode in the food court and were eating as fast as they could.
DaddyBird chose his lunch based on the length of the line at this food booth without knowing exactly what he was going to get.
This is what he ended up with -soup with fish balls and tofu.
I got a similar soup with greens and noodles from a different food stall.
Our tourist activity of the day was to go to the top of the Marina Bay Sands Towers to the Skypark observation deck.
We purposely got there just before sunset so we could see it in daylight and night time.
The view straight down (Kris this one’s for you.)
This is what people think of the “Do Not Sit on the Deck” signs. Let me rant a bit here about how stupid it is to create a tourist attraction without places to sit down. It is really rude, in my opinion. Tourists are on their feet all day and deserve a place to rest, especially if you want them to stick around (and spend money).
The Singapore Flyer lit up at night.
The view across the bay.
Dinner included burgers.
They claim to be healthy, but the only clarification in the menu or signage was that they are not prepared ahead and kept under a heat lamp. No claims of organic or low fat ingredients. No whole grain buns. So, there is room to improve the “healthy” factor. (Correction: DaddyBird says that whole grain buns were an option listed in the menu.)
It looks more like a Dagwood sandwich than a burger. The patty was savory, which seems to be hard to come by in my burger experiences.
The chili cheese fries also beg the “healthy” factor. They tasted good, but the chili was not hot enough to melt the cheese.
