Postcard Friendship Friday – Singapore & Furama Hotel

A few weeks ago, a friend sent me this postcard from Singapore. She recalled that I had mentioned at around 20 years ago I had stayed at the Furama Hotel which is depicted in this postcard and so she sent to me in the hope that it triggered a nice memory.
It did trigger a lovely memory. As I recall I was allocated a room on the 17th floor. As I checked in, I was invited to a free Singapore Sling in the bar, which was served in a china vessel in the shape of the hotel. I still have mine and it is currently located on the bathroom window ledge!
A quick Google revealed that there are now two Furama’s in Singapore. HERE is where I stayed.

    What fun! Nice memories for you. I like the *multi-view* cards. Happy PFF!


  2. I stayed at the home of a member of the British Club with the family I travelled with as a nanny. Loved Singapore and learned a lot about it from their amah (can't quite remember the term for their houskeeper), including how to make Singapore noodles.
