So as far as Singapore touristy things go, this past weekend I ventured to Sentosa Island for the first time since I've been here. This island just off the coast of the main Singapore island is made up of all the resorty things- Universal Studios, Hard Rock Hotel, beaches, and a Casino, to name a few. It is also home to the brand NEW Southeast Asia (SEA) Aquarium- the biggest aquarium in the WORLD! I went to this aquarium with some friends this weekend and had a great time! It was nice to get off campus and away from studying for awhile.
BARBECUE - This weekend we also rented out the barbecue pit near our hall to and had a nice get together! We went to the supermarket nearby to stock up on sausages, hot dogs, chicken, chips, etc. It was so nice to have everyone together before we all start going our separate ways or get sucked into the world of exams.
Now for those that may not have understood just what I meant when I said "It's really humid here", here is a little bit of photographic evidence. This is my backpack I got at the beginning of the school year covered in mold from doing nothing other than just sitting in my bedroom.. Yes, folks, it really is that humid.
Now on a more serious note, my heart goes out to all of the victims of the Boston bombings, the responders, the city of Boston and my entire country. It's times like these that the distance from home is especially felt. Much love to all from Singapore.
