Living in... Singapore LONDON BUS IN SINGAPORE 23 February 2014



There’s a new bus in town – a London bus, to be exact!

We were keen to take the kids to check it out, considering Hunter is madly into vehicles.

So what’s a London bus doing in Singapore? The British High Commission is showcasing the country’s new Routemaster model, which is here as part of a world tour to promote the country.

And here’s where I’m really frank – it was boring as hell! I’m not a bus person, I admit. Vehicles don’t excite me like they excite my kids. But who cares about what *I* think, right? We were there cos of the kids! And yep – they LOVED it.

So here Hunter is, verrrryyyyy seriously inspecting the bus’ headlights:



They got a chance to sit in the bus driver’s seat. Complete with singing “The driver on the bus says MOVE ON BACK!”, of course 😉

Here’s the upper deck of the bus. My kids have never been inside the upper deck of a bus before, so they were pretty intrigued.

Checking out the London bus made for a great little family activity – despite the searing hot weather (what IS it with Singapore’s heat at the moment??)

We took the opportunity to dunk the kids into the club’s pool, since it was such a stinking hot afternoon. They had a great time. I was soooo envious I couldn’t jump in as well, as I didn’t bring my swimmers!

What a nice way to spend a sunny weekend!
