Hello and welcome if you are new to my travelogue or welcome back if you have been following the updates.

We arrived at 4:30pm at Changi. The weather was pleasant with clear skies. We were staying at the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel on Havelock Rd. The hotel provided a mobile phone during the course of the stay and found it very useful for hailing cabs.

After checking in, we took a cab and head straight to the famous Orchard Road. Orchard road is the shopping street in Singapore and most of the major brands have representation here.

Nigh-time has the added attraction of all the charming and colourful Christmas decorations coming alive. Sunday night, the place was crowded, buzzing, colourful with plenty of decorated nooks to take selfie.

There is also a Christmas Village set up just for the holiday shopping. We started off from the Ion Orchard Mall and covered the entire stretch of just over 2 kms.

After a quick dinner of Ramen noodles and ice cream from Coldstone for the sweet palate, we head back to the hotel. It was a very colourful start to the Singapore sojourn !!
