We're fortunate to be in Singapore during the Deepavali festival in Little India. Everything was decorated so colorfully. We took a few pics so be sure to check them out. We walked around for about an hour and also checked out the Arulmigu Sri Rajakaliamman Temple which had awesome sculptures on the roof and around the overhang.

Maybe its the time of the year, but there aren't a lot of tourists about. We walked across the Esplanade Bridge to a mall thats connected to the Pan Pacific.

From the mall we headed back to the room for a quick nap before heading to The Atrium a bar on the lobby level.

Finally we had dinner at Keyaki a fancy Japanese restaurant with an elegant garden on the 4th floor. The food was excellent and the views of the city from the garden were spectacular. We had a clear view of the Singapore Flyer, the cities huge Ferris wheel.
