This report is from a holiday trip in Sept 2012. After we arrived in Singapore previous day. see report: Scoot 9V-OTA TZ1 Sydney - Singapore

We met up in the lobby and as my friend hadn't visited Singapore before, we decided to visit city while others were sleeping.
Had breakfast before hailing a taxi.
