Ok I'm back for a little post. So as I said Gardens by the Bay (where you've seen the pics of the SuperTrees) are really cool inside biospheres with lots of different plant, waterfalls and cool stuff to look at. Since I saw how close it was back to the Conrad I was able to walk back past the Marina Bay Sands and the Singapore Flyer Ferris wheel and it was probably a 15 minute walk. Since I'm super lame and lazy I'm gonna link to Yehoshua's awesome TR that shows some great pictures of the area:http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=60135.60
When I got back to the Conrad DH was up and ready for lunch. Since we didn't want to get lost we took a cab to the Kosher Coffee Bean. It is straight down Orchard Road from the hotel and in a huge indoor mall. I was glad we took the cab because he directed us to which building to go in and took us the right door and it was only a few dollars. Here is where I wish I could upload some pictures of the awesome food.
This is from Dan's TR and just shows the cake and quiches:http://www.dansdeals.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/IMG_3855a.jpg
We ordered beautiful salads and pasta and ended up ordering some extra sandwiches and quiches to take with us as well. My husband had a business meeting that evening and I knew I wouldn't want to go out again by myself so we took enough for that night and if we wanted in the airport the next day. We walked home and it was an easy 15-20 minute walk. We walked right past where the synagogue, Jewish community center and meat restaurant were. From the synagogue to the Conrad was a very short, easy and straightforward walk that could easily done with children (sometimes map will show something is close but it still isn't a good idea on Shabbat). We just enjoyed seeing all the sights and people. We stopped into the Raffles hotel, which is a really cool piece of history.
Before our trip I had ordered food from Amalfi (the local meat restaurant) to be packaged and frozen to bring to the Maldives. Because they were a little annoying to work with and gave me only a limited menu, I decided to order all the meals via www.koshwhere.com
and was really glad I did. They had a full menu, I ordered online in five minutes and could put all my explicit instructions in the order. When we got back to the Conrad, they said I had a delivery, so I saw that they came and were frozen and labeled. They were not ready for an oven though or double wrapped, they were in plastic containers. I figured that wasn't the end of the world though and I would have them double wrapped with saran wrap or transferred to tins and double wrapped at the Conrad Maldives. They also made a mistake with some of the dishes that I had ordered double, and only sent one serving. Because Koshwhere.com has such a great platform, I messaged them and they responded right away and refunded me for the dishes they didn't send. I did feel better having the third party and being able to go to through the website without a headache.
My husband dressed and went for his meeting and I just hung out at the pool and relaxed. It is a beautiful pool with nice views of the skyline and the ferris wheel. Report to be continued later, including our visit to the Marina Bay Sands!
