There's a grocery store right in the bottom part of the complex, and they stock spaghetti, strawberries, eggs, and ketchup -- so even if the little guys don't develop a taste for Singaporean food, they won't starve. :) (The room service/dining room menu also includes pizza and chicken nuggets!)
The humidity is formidable, and the heat is intense in the sun -- good thing they have so many trees around!

The flight arrived in Dubai a bit late and the connections were fairly tight, so lots of people were a bit panicked, but they had staff to meet us and "rush" us through security and the gate to get there on time.
It was very hazy in Dubai, so as you can see from the pictures, we didn't get much of a view of the city. Flying in, you can definitely tell it's the middle of a desert!
On the second flight, I had a whole row to myself -- yippee! And the planes had wifi (very, very slow wifi, but still), so I could get updates from Mike about the boys. (They're all doing just fine.)
It looks like our apartment is going to be in a great area of Singapore -- lots of restaurants, etc. right next door. And even at 10 PM, it's still plenty humid!

Of course, the boys and their friends had a blast as well. :) The only slight bummer was that Ninja Darren, who helps run the kids' classes, wasn't able to be there. (He's also an actor, and the last performance of his current play was the same time as the party.)
Matthew was excited because he got to eat his whole name on the cookie cake. :)
The boys got to request which obstacles to do during their party, and James wanted to do Cannonball Alley because he still hasn't beaten it. (I overheard him tell one of his friends that Cannonball Alley was "his nemesis.")
