Saturday in Singapore

At least 18,000 steps worth!

semi-overcast 80 °F

Frankie and Felicia invited me to go to Singapore to see the Live Nativity at our church. We decided to make a day of it starting at 9 am. It was a pretty quick border crossing and we made it to the church in an hour. We left the car parked there and headed for the MRT. We went over to Sensota Island and spent several hours there. There is Universal Studio, an aquarium, shopping, a casino, restaurants and numerous activities like zip lines and such you can do. We were also able to see Fort Siloso, where the Japanese invaded during World War II. We walked on the beach, ate Krispie Cream donuts, walked thru the casino where we had all the free soda and hot chocolate we could drink, ate a yummy lunch of Chinese food, and walked and walked.

We headed over to the church building where there was a fantastic live Nativity. They had different rooms set up to depict King Herod, the shepards, the wise men, the angels and finally Baby Jesus. Very touching.

We then headed over to Orchard Road to look at the Christmas Lights. It was like New York City. Crazy crowded and bright with holiday lights.

Back to the church where we visited with people while waiting for the traffic to slow down at the border.

I was talking to a sweet sister missionary and she told me she is from Orem, Utah, near the mouth of the Provo Canyon. I
mentioned that I taught at Foothill Elementary School that is near there, and she said she went there. She asked my name and realized I had her younger sister several years ago, and that she loved me and always would talk about me. What a crazy and small world. We took a photo together and sent off an email to her mom and Addy. I'm hoping to hear back from her.

Did see a cool moon tonight. It was a crescent moon turned sideways and looked like a smiley face. Yes...I'm on the other side of the world and it's turned differently here. Amazing

Fabulous day with some really wonderful friends.

I am heading back to Singapore tomorrow to stay overnight with a friend because I have to get a new passport at the US embassy. I've run out of pages and can't get my work permit until I have a new passport. Hopefully, the day will go just as well.
