A Holiday of Serendipity

 An orchid overload near the Singapore River Cruise ticket counter at Clarke Quay

Today (May 13, 2014) was Vesak Day in Singapore. For us it was an unexpected holiday. Starting the day at an easy pace, we went out for lunch. We both felt like some comfort food. So we went to our preferred A-Roy Thai restaurant at the Funan Digital Mall. There we decided to go to Little India after lunch. I suggested we take the MRT from Clarke Quay instead of going to our regular City Hall MRT station. Clarke Quay was nearer from Funan. While walking towards Clarke Quay, we saw the pristine looking boats cruise by. My partner suggested we take a cruise trip and then go to Little India. I agreed and we both boarded the boat 37, as suggested by the boat operators. A boat ride for two cost us S$44. These are some of the pictures that would say more than words here.
