Sunrise our second day.

I love the lush foliage mixed right in with the city.

A quick note about our hotel: I LOVED IT! I didn't take any photos of the inside or the grounds as I knew I wouldn't be able to capture the elegance of it all. It's an absolutely gorgeous hotel! Click on this link to take a virtual tour.
|This is Johnny, the Shangri La concierge. Such a nice guy!|
He helped us a lot. If we weren't asking him questions about this & that, Johnny
made it a point to always come over & asked us what we had done/or were about to do.
For breakfast on our 2nd day, we decided to go to the Wisma Atria hawker center for breakfast.
Fun fact: A hawker center is a food court with LOTS of different restaurants to choose from. They are in every shopping mall & all over the city. It's the most economical way to eat in Singapore. The three of us were able to eat breakfast for about $8; while lunch & dinner averaged between $10-15...for ALL 3 of us!
We left our hotel & walked to the Wisma Atria. Look what we found on the way!
And a little further down the road, Omid showed us this sign.☺
Jeffrey had told us we should try something called 'kaya toast.' We really wanted to try it, so that was on our agenda for breakfast. Kaya is a egg, coconut & pandan jam. Pandan is a vanilla flavored herb. It sounded interesting & tasted amazing! It was love at first bite for me.☺

Kaya jam made such an impression on me, I purchased 5 jars right away.☺
|Jars of happiness.☺|
After breakfast, we headed back to the hotel. Omid & Matty wanted to swim, as it was about 95* & very humid. I loved being hot, but they didn't enjoy it as much.
