So now I've been in SIN for shabbos and I must say it was very nice.
Meal was nice - tasty Indian style food. And i think you'd prob enjoy it more in SIN over bkk as its classier and nicer

Thanks for the follow up. At this point, it's going to be dictated by availability.

Where'd you stay?

Trying to decide how to get food to Bali for 9 days. My flight from NY with a layover in PEK will take about 30 hours. Are there places in SIN that I can pre order food from for my trip? Will it cost a fortune?

Update. I spoke to the kosher shop and they said that they plenty of kosher food items, and that we can buy eveything that we need for Bali from them. They said that they have meat, lamb, chicken, cheese etc.

Dan wrote a really informative piece about Singapore with a lot of food tips and pics. Check it out by searching for his trip report.

Trying to plan out my Singapore trip a bit. We land on Friday at 7am and are on a 7pm flight on Sunday. Getting in and out will be with Singapore airlines. As will have a baby with us I booked the Sheraton before the rate changes in March, since we can't eat out on Shabbos either way.

I was thinking of going Friday morning to little India and the Arab quarter and then see Orchard st which is right near the  Sheraton. Motzei Shabbos (shabbos ends at 830) we would do the night safari. Sunday would go to Sentosa island, Marina bay sands hotel, and then Chinatown.

Am I missing anything? Should I do it differently? If Chinatown is not really worth seeing maybe I would take it out and do the Arab quarter and little India on Sunday to give my wife so breathing time after all the flying to get to SIN.
