Greetings from Homer!
As I mentioned in my earlier posts, my humans and I are leaving Singapore to seek pastures new. One of the perks of relocating to different countries is that I often get to stay in a swanky hotel before we leave. This relocation was no exception. A few days before our departure, we checked into one of Singapore’s “ooh, la-di-da” (i.e. very ‘posh’) hotels.
It was not easy for the Missus to find a hotel in Singapore which accepts dogs; especially ‘big’ ones like me. She spent a lot of time trawling the Internet and making phone calls, but usually met with rejection. On the odd occasion that she found a hotel which actually took in dogs; the policy was that they could not weigh more than 8Kg (16lbs). “Bah – I’ll never slim down from 35Kg to a paltry 8Kg”.
Anyway, after much frustration, the Missus finally managed to find a hotel which was willing to accommodate Yours Truly – the 'Conrad Centennial Singapore'.
|Here I am, posing nicely just outside my new 'temporary' home.|
|Very soon, I began to make new friends...|
|...and as soon as I entered the hotel, I made even more.|
|In fact, I was soon swamped by booti-ful ladies wanting to pet me.|
|Everybody wanted a photo opportunity!|
|Phew! As soon as I could escape from all of the attention, I made my way to the Front Desk to check-in.|
Then I went to check out my room…
|Ta-da! I was so surprised and happy to see that the hotel had provided a bowl for my kibbles and a brand new chewing rope for me to play with.|
|They even gave me a new cuddly 'Conrad Bear' to add to my collection of soft toys.|
|And look! My own special door sign!|
|Time to get settled-in and see whether the room met my high expectations.|
|The bed seemed comfy enough - "Pass".|
|And the shower was more than big enough - "Pass".|
|Wow! The view was astounding! "Pass".|
I thought I’d better go down and explore the surroundings…
|...but once I got to the lobby, I couldn't resist posing on the Hollywood-style glamorous staircase.|
|And sitting next to the grand piano.|
|Right, enough of this posing. Time for me and Dad to take a walk around the neighbourhood.|
|The hotel was right next to Suntec City and the ‘Fountain of Wealth’.|
|In fact, there were fountains everywhere!|
|We were also close to the Marina Bay Sands. Haven't I been here before?|
|As well as the new Gardens by the Bay.|
All in all, my hotel and its surroundings were booti-ful.
|I was a very happy boy.|
I would like to say thanks to the staff of the Conrad Centennial Singapore who made me feel very welcome during my stay. The hotel is indeed a hidden gem in Singapore!
