Marina Bay Sands

Okay let's just say that yesterday ”all my problems seemed so far away...”.
No, I'm just quoting The Beatles for some reason (?) Anyway, yesterday didn't start too well, I was a bit grumpy about the weather, - rain. I then decided that I could visit world famous Marina Bay Sands.

I can actually see the building/s from my hotel, it's not long from where I live so I decided to take a walk there. (And yes I had an umberella.)

That place is enormously huge, no kidding. I felt like I had walked into an airport or something. I had to ask how to get to the shops. I got to the ”mall part” of the building and got surprised when the first thing I saw was an ice rink with people ice-skating. I'm from Sweden, ice-skating is something you do outside on the winter when it's at least – 20 degrees Celsius. Not inside a mall when it's around 30 degrees hot. Interesting though.

I went on to check out the stores, and I have to say if you're not a person with interests in expensive and famous brands – you should go elsewhere to shop. I'm not complaining I actually enjoyed to walk in stores I've only seen over the internet. Since there are world famous brands I can't say that there are much of a price difference here from what I know.

Oh, and I almost forgot, boats!

Nope I haven't teleported to Venice, this is inside the mall, a canal where you can take a boat ride. It's really cute in my opinion, I just got that feeling. I didn't take a ride myself, but I did stand by the side and happily waved to people in the boats like a total fool.

I ate lunch and then went back home to my own hotel, the rain had stopped for a moment and I saw the sun. Yayyy
But I was really tired so I went to my room for a nap. I'm not used to this kind of heat, I think it's tiresome for my body. I spend some hours on my room watching Singaporean TV, and surfing the net. I'm a teenager I need internet, okay?

Then I went out to eat at an nearby resturant. I met a really nice girl from Mexico at the resturant. Turned out she had been to Sweden just last year. I even tried to speak some Spanish and she actually understood what I said.
Then I went back to the hotel. Again.

Okay this entry got longer than I thought so I'll just write about today in the next entry.
