And So To Fort Canning

This is the view of Fort Canning from our 'Superior Room' at Fort Canning Lodge; the YWCA.  We have just shifted in with our worldy possessions and a very convenient spot it is.

A nice large space with all of the things we need for the next two weeks, free internet access and breakfasts for two - all for $S145 per night.  When you compare this to the cost of hotels in this part of the city it is outstanding value.  We negotiated a good rate with Billy their sales manager as we were staying for almost a fortnight.

Plaza Singapura is a major shopping centre in ...To get to Orchard Road we walk through the back of the Park Mall building and take the lift down to the Penang Road level.  Then we simply walk across to the Doby Ghaut station and cross over to Plaza Singapura Mall.

Carrefour supermarket is situated there and this is where we will buy most of our evening meals to bring back to the room.

This French chain sells everything from bikes to bagels and we have often bought our coffee from them.  I expect I will become quite familiar with their pastry counter over the next fortnight.

Tomorrow we will return to our condo for a couple of hours just to complete a final hand-over cleaning.  Then we lock up and on Tuesday hand over the keys to our lawyer so that she can complete the sale process.
