A great day in Singapore. The weather was relatively cool, there was a nice breeze, and we met up with one of Kyla's friends from university, Kit, who arrived in town on business.

We saw Little India (and not Little Italy, as we kept mistakenly saying), and a really nice temple (the temple's name was the Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple. A bit of a mouthful for non-Hindus, I think). We ate at a Singapore institution, the Banana Leaf Apolo. Everyone who's been to Singapore mentions this place, it seems. A great North and South Indian cuisine spot.

We wandered around the Raffles Hotel, which is the Grande Dame of Singapore hotels. Originally opened in the 1890's, it has seen notable celebrities, authors, and officials. It even invented the Singapore Sling.

We met up with Kit in the evening for drinks and dinner. It happened to be in the middle of the parade for Chinese New Year, so we had to thread our way carefully through the thousands of people out on the streets having fun. (Though it is Singapore, remember. It was all very wholesome fun.)
