Raffles Hotel architectural landmark practically sums up
’s vibrant colonial history. Named after Singapore ’s founder, Sir Stamford Raffles is an example of elegant colonial architecture and has an amazing history. It opened in1887 by Sarkies brothers from Singapore with 10 rooms. It was always synonymous with oriental opulence hence attracted the elite. One should have High Tea here at the Toffin Room and Singapore Sling in the long Bar where you throw peanut shells on the floor. Armenia sling was designed here and initially for the ladies hence it’s pink color. We visited Singapore which was fun personal and interesting. Full of thank you notes from guests, items of clothing(fascinating) and photographs. It must have been so much fun staying at that hotel in it’s glory!!! Ruffles Museum
Yet colonial and it’s amazing history has something…that special something to add to the experience not to mention that it is absolutely breathtaking stunning.

Back in civilization again!!!!!!!!!!
Imagine 710sq m with 4.8 million people an island, a city and a country.Intriguing blend of Chinesse (over 72%), Malay(13%), Indian and westerners without the dust and grime of the rest of
and all the experiences we had here. Singapore
Getting here was like a huge milestone and felt like a real achievement.
We both have been to
before and made “our own” new memories this time. Singapore
We have seen a lot and experienced a lot in this city, something we will never forget.
Each day was usually an unexpected adventure.
Most importantly we have resolved all our technical issues and had our engine serviced. This took time perseverance a lot of patience much more than we have anticipated.
This will be a picture story of
the way it unfolded for us. Enjoy as we have and we hope that one day you too can come here and have make your own memories. Singapore
