hamsterballing!

i had the greatest day today! it started out with an amazing surprise...ALL the channels on my tv were unlocked. i called the cable company because i was nervouse they were charging me for all the chanels, but i found out that the cable company had some glitch yesterday so they were now allowing all customers access to all channels for a limited time. this would ONLY ever happen in singapore!! and i LOVE television...so i spent the first half of day watching the fashion channel becuase i would never actually pay for it. aaah i love television!

i also found these great things at 7 Eleven...magnum minis. they're mini ice crem bars in the most decadent flavors!



then my day got even more exciting when i went hamsterballing (or zorbing which is what the inventors actually refer to it as...but i prefer hamsterballing). you basically get into a giant inflatable hamsterball and the workers roll you down a hill...and then you "hamster crawl" up the hill. it sounds great right? but i guess i never took into account how crazy hot it would be inside the hamster ball! just one roll down and half of a climb up made me sweatier than sitting in a suana. i still feel a bit sick. don't get me wrong...it was great but i would never do that again in singapore. maybe new zealand where it was invented.



after we were all good and sweaty...we made it to holland village for the best treat, chocolate fondue at haggen daaz. i dont know why no one has ever thought of using ice cream to dip in fondue but it is amazing!! mmmm...life is great.



but the day keeps on getting better. after showering  i went with cassie to explore the newest mall on orchard, 313. and it has got to be my favorite mall in all of singapore...and thats saying a lot considering singapore is only made up of malls. the food court is the entire top level! so much awesome food in one food court. and there is the cutest muffin place. the muffins actually look like normal muffins. i bet they are delicious...i cant wait to try one next time. and they let you decorate your own cakes with different colored icing on one side.



and we found this great boutique called ribbons...where i found this great tank top. i also got the cutest agenda for next year!



but the greatest part of 313 was the four level FOREVER 21. wow it is one of the largest FOREVER 21 stores i have ever been to. and its just as cheap as in the states. and even greater is that everyone in singapore is a size XS or S so everything is left in size M! its like the total opposite of america where everyone is M. i didn't plan to spend so much money today...but i guess thats how it always goes. i cant wait until we make smores tomorrow on the BBQ. im sure tomorrow night will be great.
