But on March 27, we ventured out and even took the easy to use MRT (subway).
|Super clean subway station!
|Easy to understand arrows so riders getting on let people off first
|What? No smelly homeless guy taking up a whole row?
We first headed to Orchard Street and landed at the Ion Center - which is a gigantic mall. And good thing we did because it started pouring. We had shelter, AC and entertainment for a couple hours.

After the rain stopped, we headed to Sentosa (which you get to through another mall called Vivo). Sentosa is home to the Merlion. What is a Merlion you ask? Legend says that when Prince Sang Nila Utama first landed on the island, he saw a lion. Taking it as a good omen, the prince named the city Singapura - Lion (Singa) City (Pura). The fishtail of the Merlion symbolizes Singapore's humble beginnings as a fishing village.
|Yes! We got a picture with the infamous Merlion!

We then took a cable car to Mount Faber, the highest natural point in Singapore for some great views of the city.

When two people come together to ring the Bell of Happiness, it signifies an ever blossoming romance, while the echoes that follow are blessings to the couple for everlasting happiness.

|We're already very happy and feel so blessed but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ring the bell!
|View of the harbour (going down the cable car) - see all the cargo ships?
After dinner, we walked around Little India.
|Lots of shops in Little India
