at the hotel

When I said goodbye to Mina at the airport I got the feeling that Hong Kong is a place I really should pay a real visit to, Iv'e put it on my mental list of places to go.
I got to my gate and not didn't have to wait that long to board the plane. Finally, this plane would take me to my final destination.
Arriving in Singapore, a new country, all alone. How exciting!
I got my suitcase and managed to get a taxi to the hotel. While in the taxi I just stared out at the buildnings, I have never seen buildnings this tall. Then I realized that this is the first big city I ever been to. I have visited some airports around the world, but never really seen a city like this. I am still at a loss of words. This city makes Stockholm look small! About 20 minutes from getting into the taxi I stepped inside the five star hotel. I have never seen a place like this, absolutely amazing. I got my room on the 12th floor. The view is incredible but I get a little dizzy standing right in front of the window. According to the wikipedia site for the hotel 3 persons have died from falling from this buildning, that's scary. But I'm sure I'll be fine if I just stay away from the window.
Around half past nine I had freshed up a bit and I went down to the lobby to find a good place to eat. Apparently the hotel have 16 resturants! How big is this place?
I then decided that I would like to go outside the hotel so I went to a place called The Singapore Food Trail which was really good! I ate ”Changi Village Carrot Cake & Char Kway Teow” and I actually liked it. It was definitely something new, and I liked it.
Then I strolled around the place a bit, and I saw the Singapore Flyer, a big ferris wheel. It's very beautiful here even when it's raining! Like, the weather is really hot but it's raining and is a bit cloudy. This weather still beats the current snow-less winter back in Sweden by miles.
But now I'm back at the hotel, lying in my king size bed, exhausted. I got a text from my grandmother and grandfather wishing me a happy namesday. I had almost forgotten it myself, but this trip is a really nice namesday present to myself.
