We had no lessons on wednesday and went to the botanic gardens and to marina bay. Because it rained 2 hours we only had a picnic under the roof and didn't explore the botanic gardens extensively. By MRT we went to the station promenade and from that point on we walked to marina bay. Finally we've been in the city! The hotel, the city with all the skyscrapers and the gardens by the bay are very impressive. Because of tired legs and enough tourist stuff for one day we finished the trip without hiking through the super trees. We'll do it another time.
Next day after Chinese 1 lessons, we went to IKEA for shopping and lunch. It felt a bit like home, cause IKEA looks everywhere the same. I bought some dishes, pillows, a lamp, a bath towel and some small things.
