Friday, a bunch of us sat down to plan weekend trips and I booked tickets for Bali, Cambodia and Malyasia for less than $600 USD for all three trips. Singapore is an expensive city to live (especially compared to India and Thailand) so that makes it especially tempting to travel. Deb went out with a friend friday night and paid $100 for dinner and two drinks at a moderately priced restaurant. Buying a beer here can cover hostel housing for a long weekend anywhere else in Southeast Asia. So it's almost economical when you think about how much a night out in Singapore costs. We're probably going to book a trip to Cebu, Philippines too... I'm just going to hate airplanes and flying by the end of the summer... too bad Tiger Airlines and Malyasia air won't help with frequent flier miles back home.
So Friday night, a bunch of us headed to Hard Rock Cafe with the intention of meeting up with a couple who are friends of friends (she worked at TIP nerd camp back in the States) and listening to a live band. We got live music (mostly a 60s/70s cover band) but the couple was at the OTHER Hard Rock Cafe, which was unfortunate. But good times were had by all and I plan to catch up with Lauren soon.
