On the edge...
We flew Scoot out of the Gold Coast. The flight was brought forward a couple hours without any real notice and the seats we had paid extra to book were not what we ended up with but the flight was fine and on landing in Singapore customs and immigration were efficient and problem free. We went straight to the transport counter (just before the taxi rank) and organised a van for 5 of us plus luggage (SGD60).

Our first impression of Singapore was how clean and neat and organised everything appears.

The Marina Bay Sands porters and check-in were friendly and the door guy was suitably embarrassed when he greeted Nic as Ma'am-Sir (in his defence he approached from behind so saw the luscious locks before the manly mo). As we waited around 10 minutes for check-in they apologised by upgrading our room 😊

We went for a stroll through the Marina Bay Shoppes and all chose yummy things from the Rasapura Masters Foodcourt.

The infinity pool on the 57th floor of the hotel was an awesome experience and an amazing view so braving the cold for photo opportunity was worth it.

Just across the footbridge is Gardens by the Bay where the Supertree Grove is impressive especially at night.
