Upon waking up, we had breakfast, then went about exploring Changi. Uncle Mike brought back some custard apples from Malaysia the day before and Jas got to try another new fruit.
Cheryl, Terence, Jas and I rented bicycles and cycled the entirety of Changi beach (could have taken the park connector to East Coast Park, but were lazy). Jas and I got double bikes (or they call it tandem bikes in North America) and it was incredibly difficult to balance, but we made it out okay. After cycling, we also swam in the sea.

After coming back to the chalet and taking a bath, it is dinner time! :) We were having steamboat (they call it hot pot in North America) and there was again, a lot of food. There were a couple of pots on a long table, and it was a tight squeeze because we had about 25 or so people, but the more the merrier. For steamboat, we usually have different kinds of veggies, different types of meatballs, some fish and assorted other meats.
table, all set up!
