You're on

We'll have to compare notes on flights, hotels etc & see if we can meet up somewhere. With 7 kids between us we might be able to hire out the zoo for the night!! Scare the tigers with that lot running loose

It was the same for us, once we finally got the go-ahead, all systems go!
Congratulations

Speaking of Zoo's, I totally recommend Singapore Zoo, esp the night safari!

If you girls want a night on the town, then get yourself down to horseshoe quay, heaps of bars and resturants!

Or for a seafood feast, check out the East Coast UBC, seafood resturants right by the sea (kid friendly).

BTW, Tiger beer is pretty naff, stick with the Carlsberg!

We might have to start one end of the road & work our way along to the other :curse:

Sad person that I am, I quite like Tiger
