I finally learned how to post pics so here are some from the Gardens by the Bay, walking outside and in their Biosphere domes:








It was a beautiful way to spend a couple of hours and then a nice walk back past the Marina Bay Sand to the Conrad.

Most of the Streets had fencing around them for an upcoming Formula One street race...now THAT would be cool to watch in between the skyscrapers!





These posters advertising the big race were all over town:



And I forgot, I need to give a shout out to @Yehuda for being such a mentsch and helping teach me how to upload pictures to DDF (I know there are written tutorials here but I needed MORE help).  :P

When I got back to the Conrad my husband was finally up and we decided to head over to the Coffee Bean.  Even though we could tell it wasn't that far we decided to just cab it over and not waste time, although we did walk back and it was a beautiful, easy walk home.

The Coffee Bean had a lot more than in the US and was basically like a full service, fast casual restaurant, actually in a mall.

Takeout:


Breakfast menu:


Lunch/Dinner Menu:


Our Lunch food was great (especially for us country bumpkins who only have a pizza shop, not a dairy restaurant with cool pastas and salads in Denver)!  :)






And since I know some of you guys are getting nervous, here is the teudah for y'all  :P



Since my husband had a work meeting that evening and we had an early flight to MLE in the morning (with an unknown wait in the lounge before the seaplane) we also took some nice pastries, quiches and sandwiches to go (we ended up being so glad that we had them).

Because we both had some work today and DH needed to head out, I just spent the afternoon at the pool, which is very nice at the Conrad.




I'll try to post some more later about our evening adventure to the Marina Bay Sands Casino and then continuation on to the Conrad Maldives!
