This was my first time in both Thailand and Singapore and really, I’m tempted to just let the photos speak for themselves. Our first stop in Thailand was the grand palace, and my goodness, I was completely floored by its beauty. Practically speechless. It looked like one big glittery heavenly majesty.
The complex was also covered in the most breathtakingly beautiful mosaics. So, every where you went you were faced with something like this. (I have to just show the photo, because even the most descriptive words would not do this justice)
I know, right?
We also had two very different dinners in Thailand. Our first night we had local street food, which consisted of fish with lemongrass, tom yum soup, papaya salad, and a big helping of sticky rice. Our second night was a fancy dinner with a lot of fusion dishes like pad thai tacos, coconut cheese, and thai ice cream sandwiches. Both were incredibly delicious, but hands down, we all thought the street food was better!
We only had one day in Singapore, so let me give you the quick three highlight run down.
1) Singapore botanical gardens were filled with some of the most beautiful flowers I’ve ever seen. I believe the one on the top right was a young ginger!
3) Oh yes, and a night cap at the raffles hotel for the original singapore sling! The guy at the bar told us it was originally designed as a “fruit punch” for the ladies! Ha.. something about that is funny.
And that concludes this quick summary of my recent trip! Hope you enjoyed the photos! I’m excited to get back to my regular broadcasting, though.. life for these next few months is going to be incredibly transitional as I get prepped to head back to school. So, who knows what I’ll post about! (probably lemon desserts and artichokes…)
