We had one thing we really needed to do here and that was to find some new front tyres for the bikes, with Melaka being out of the question with no stock and high prices. Goh took us on a mission driving all over the place to find some for us and he succeeded only after a break of course for a top up at one of the many coffee houses (missing them now we are back in Malaysia) We scored the tyres for a good price, basically 2 for 1 on Aussie prices. The rest of our time was mainly spent catching the subway which was cheap and efficient to see all the city had to offer. From visiting Chinatown to Little India, Kampong Glam and the red light district which was all Goh's idea, honestly. For Sanne we had to visit Orchard Rd which is a shoppers paradise or so I am told not really being all that interested! It is shopping centre after shopping centre. Needed a beer of 2 after that day. On our walk around we came across a crazy Trans Asian competition to win a car. The deal is, you place one hand on a nominated hand print on a car and hold it there for as long as you can. You are given one break for 5 minutes every 6 hours. That is to eat, go to the toilet and whatever else you can do to prepare for the next 6 hours. This is without sleep or shelter come rain, hail or sunshine. Bloody mad I tell you. While we were there one guy collapsed and was taken away to medical in a wheel chair. Only the strong survive here. Eventually the winner held on for 75 hours and 34 mins to win. Singapore is a place we would like to return to all the more so now having some new found friends to go back to visit.
