The day began late with a late lunch at Songfa Bak Kut Teh, our new favorite restaurant which just happens to be about two blocks from our hotel. DaddyBird opted for the pork stomach soup and I had the pork ribs.

We took a short Singapore river cruise. It was cooler on the water.

Boat Quay – this used to be the area where cargo used to be loaded/off-loaded. Now it is restaurants.

  1. the trees-are those roots or trunks going down the cement? those are impressive! Also, the bay skyscrapers. they don’t look safe! I am not sure I could work/live in something that high near water. Is this area known for earthquakes?
