Too wet and shitty for a run but it's never too wet and shitty for coffee 😍 #coffee#nood
We took the cable car to Sentosa Island and approximately 5 mins after we landed it helpfully began to rain heavily for 6 hours. We managed to visit the aquarium (amazeballs - I'm a shaaaark!), looked at a K-pop hologram theatre entrance and eventually some rides opened up so we luged, cable carred, zip lined, para jumped and Segway'd the day away. The light and water show at the end was really impressive but mega-cheesy.
Entirely by accident, ahem, we ended up staying less than a k away from the Cat Cafe. Helen noticed a little tiger sticking his head out the window so we just *had* to visit. As you can tell Helen is super allergic to cats. This place is really relaxed, buy yourself a cup of tea and chill to soothing music and kitties. #murleycruise2017#catcafe#cats#omgkitties
I don't generally drink a lot of beer but this colder than ice cold super cold Tiger was *amazing*. I was too busy scoffing down black pepper crab to take any photos of it but trust me, it's incredible. Make sure you try some somewhere in Singapore - I recommend Newton Food Centre, very easy to get to via MRT #murleycruise2017#foodheaven#beer
Last morning of the cruise 😩 Nice of Singapore to treat us with this gorgeous sunrise though. In some ways 5 nights was just right but any longer and we would have likely spaced out the activities a bit more and I guess relaxed a bit more. Crammed a *lot* of activities into that time and it was thoroughly enjoyable. The good times didn't stop here though... #murleycruise2017#ovationoftheseas#sunrise
So last night on the cruise was formal night and we got all fancy and went out to dinner at Wonderland. Food was somewhat experimental but generally quite nice. Desserts were amazing. What I missed getting any photos of was the Schooner Bar and it's not something you can truly capture in pictures alone. It almost always featured a pianist or some musical act and the vibe was laid back, classy and super relaxing. We loved sitting by the piano drinking Brandy Alexanders and requesting songs from one of the crooners. A++ would croon again. #murleycruise2017#finedining#omgimwearingasuit#ovationoftheseas
We had something called a "Galley Brunch" one morning on the ship. It involved bottomless bubbly, a tour of the kitchens then an insanely great brunch. The kitchens were impressive - 400 cooks working 8 months straight, baking 10,000 bread rolls a day in the bakery (!) and other such ridiculousness. Brunch was lobster bisque, tuna salad, seafood stew, lobster + steak and aforementioned bottomless bubbly 😍 Fun Fact: some kid dropped their phone in that cake! #murleycruise2017#foodoverload#fooddeath#foodheaven#bubblyoverload#bubblydeath#bubblyheaven#cakefail
Back in Phuket we hit the best bar in Patong, smashed a super strong Singapore Sling and indulged in street food of which I was able to at least determine the origin of (unlike Penang). Helen was super happy to get a vege pad Thai and I looooove street chicken ❤️ #murleycruise2017#sykeswalkercruise2017#streetfood#goodtimes
