llessur posted a topic in TravelThe OH and I are getting busy planning our trip out to Oz next year and are hoping to treat ourselves to a 4 or 5 night stopover in Singapore along the way. We've looked at quite few hotels but two that tickle our fancy are the Pan Pacific and Conrad Centennial. Trip Advisor speaks pretty highly of these, I just wondered if any PIO members had any personal experiences with either - or if anyone had any other suggestions. Looks like there's plenty to see and do in 4 days but does anyone have any recommendations for things to do in Singapore whilst we're there that we might have missed? Also, taxis to and from the city - are they fairly easy and cheap to get or is there a better way (assuming our hotel doesn't have a transfer service)? Cheers all! The excitement's building now - I've just told my boss I'm off next year... :shocked:
Well, I've not been on PIO for a long time after having a serious operation, selling our house, moving into a friend's vacant house (with ONLY ONE bathroom!! Jeez! How do we cope!!! haha!).....and we've FINALLY got the dog's import permits and are ready to book all of our flights!! BUT....and it's a BIG BUT! After 3yrs of planning to move to Perth (and spending last Dec there!) we are now wondering if it's the right thing to do! Even 12 months ago we wouldn't have worried about work, but now it's a completely different story...as we all know!! My husband is a production/operations manager with a masters in business studies and 90% of the work vacancies are on the east coast. We knew that most manufacturing was over there, but there was never a worry that he wouldn't find a job in Perth! Now it is so different! And I'm not asking for advice on where we should live (because it's blatently obvious that we should go where the work is!) but I'd just like to share my fears of now thinking of starting our new lives in a city that we don't know and haven't researched! I feel as though we've been hoping to live in 'Spain' and now decided to live in 'cyprus'...if you understand that? I know we can always move again if we don't like it on the East coast but it will be hard with our Daughter's education and having to fly the dogs out again! But not impossible!! Do you know, I think I've just talked myself out of my worries!! Life's an adventure....these things are sent to try us (and all the rest of the cliches!!) Thanks for reading! Lisa,xx
