    Day Nine - Singapore Sling

    Today we travelled back to Singapore where our apartment has been lying alone. It sort of feels like heading home from a little vacation on our holidays.
    The pool side view from the hotel
     We arose early for another monster breakfast then a short stroll around the pavilion shopping mall, which is right beside the hotel. Even though today was a national holiday, everything was open as usual. A performance platform had been erected for some nation day performances later that afternoon.
    O'Briens Sandwich Bar in KL Airport
    We availed of the late checkout, headed back to the hotel and took full advantage of the pool and sun loungers. This has to be the first time we've ever sun bathed at a hotel pool in all these years of blogging our annual holidays.

    Very relaxed and sun kissed, we checked out and took a taxi to sentral train station to catch the KL Airport Express (we had a return ticket).

     We flew the 18:20 JetStar to Singapore. KL airport is truly beautiful. Not only does it feature a tropical jungle oasis but also an O'Briens Irish Sandwich bar!!! How fun!

    Landing back in Singapore was a breeze as it was so familiar to us. We knew exactly how to leave the airport and connect to the city and our apartment via the underground.

    We rounded off the evening with a Singapore Sling at the Raffels hotels Long Bar, the location where the drink was first created!
