Again we fly home for Christmas, this time via Singapore.

As always, we are thrilled with the good service from Singapore Airlines. Since we have the whole day in Singapore, we use the great offer of a free sightseeing city tour. Unfortunately it is raining, so we then spend some time indoor in the new "Juwel", a mega shopping center right next to Changi Airport.

The Jewel is a shopping center of a particularly unusual kind: In the inner circle of the 10-storey oval building there is a 40m high waterfall and all around that the walls are covered with tropical plants.

Christmas decorations in icy blue, silver and white color adorn the floors. It even snows three times a day in here.

We end our visit to Singapore with a reunion and a meal together with our old friends Gitta and Götz from our time in Malaysia 20 years ago.
