Today we flew to Singapore. Kent had business meetings to go to during the week, but we went a couple days early to do sightseeing.
Arrived late in the afternoon, used our Metro passes to get to the hotel, and checked in. We had a little time before joining Kent's colleagues for dinner.
Wandered through the Millenia Walk, a mall of shops and restaurants:
We went to the Ritz-Carlton Hotel to see the Chihuly Lounge, which has some Chihuly blown glass art on the back wall in yellow:
