We just returned from our second trip to Singapore. It was another required visit to renew visas, so it was quick and productive. We were there for three days, but most of our time was spent taking Kylee to medical appointments at Mount Elizabeth Hospital.
To make a long story short, when Kylee was in the Tembagapura Hospital over Christmas, she had an abdominal ultrasound that indicated that she had a sizable gallstone in her gallbladder. She was referred to a pediatric surgeon in Singapore for follow-up tests and, if necessary, surgery. However, after an examination and a second ultrasound, nothing could be found. Doctor Chui determined that what looked like a gallstone was just “a shadow” that developed during the procedure.
We spent our last afternoon in Singapore near Marina Bay, where the largest ferris wheel in the world stands. The Singapore Flyer is 165 meters high (comparable to a 42-story building) and 150 meters wide. It can hold up to 784 passengers, and promises each and every one of them a spectacular view of Singapore. On a clear day, passengers can see up to 45 miles away, which includes views of Sentosa Island, Changi Airport and even parts of Malaysia and Indonesia. A complete rotation of the wheel takes approximately 32 minutes.
