sentosa, slings, and flowers

we went to the beach on sentosa island a few days ago. really pretty spot! nice to relax on the beach, read, and chat with monica and kip. later that evening we went to raffles hotel to have a singapore sling. raffles is a famous, colonial-style building and it is where the singapore sling was invented! our friends paul and peyi pey (who we met at mount bromo in indonesia) met us that evening as well. after raffles, we all went to a spanish tapas restaurant for dinner. the food has been really good here in singapore.

raffles for singapore slings!

yesterday, we went to the botanic gardens. lots of pretty flowers.
