Sentosa Island was on tap for Day four!
Matty & I started our day out with kopi-c (Singaporean coffee with cream) & Kaya toast. After breakfast, we took the hotel's free shuttle bus to the island.
Matty was starving by the time we arrived, so we shared an Indonesian chicken & rice claypot meal. It doesn't look so big in this photo but the diameter of the claypot was about 12". Huge!

This merlion was 150 ft tall & visitors could climb up inside for $8.
|Frangipani - the scent was similar to gardenia. Loved it!|
|Check out that foliage!|
I usually avoid things like zip lines (scary!), but Omid challenged Matty & I to do it. I was not going to back down from this challenge! I wasn't scared at all until I was 'dangling' - waiting to be let go, & tried my best to be brave.
I will tell you this: I did scream & I never let go of the rope. Matty was much braver & didn't hold on to the rope at all! All in all, it was a lot of fun. The only thing I disliked was that I spun around & was looking behind me instead of in front. I wanted to see where I was headed! I figured out that if I kicked my legs/pedaled like on a bicycle, then I could face frontwards again.
We explored the island a bit more & then caught the shuttle back to the hotel. Matty was craving a hamburger. I told him that we did not fly halfway across the globe to eat American food! He was relentless, so I gave in. We walked to the HardRock Cafe so he could have a burger.
Guess how much we paid for TWO hamburgers? $60!!!!
The burgers were delicious, but $30 a burger?! C'mon!
