Heading to Singapore for a week. Any recommendations for things to do/places to eat etc.? Let me qualify by saying I'm happily married :=, and not a big club-goer :(

Chewing gum & spraying your 'tag' on walls near the hotel would give you a night to remember.

How can you possibly waste your good time asking about 'what to do in Singapore', you must be the most boring person on Gods earth, AND someone has given you an aviators ticket. You need a few hours and a log book or two.

If you want a sobering experience you could go to the WW2 cemetary at Kranji, about half way from the city to the causeway, most of the people there died at the hands of the Japanese at a very young age.
After that go down to either Boat or Clarke Quay, select a food of your choice, order a jug of cold beer and watch the world go by.
This in on until the 16th Oct..

Definitely worth a visit if you haven't caught it elsewhere on it's travels around the world. Then pop into the Fullerton ( <5 min walk) if you want a civilised drink before heading for the aforementioned Quays (<10 min walk) :E.

Clarke Quay for eats/people watching.
Raffles for a Drink or two in the afternoon. Then nip around the corner to the Swisshotel, go up the express elevator to the 73rd (or 72nd) floor, where there is a near-rooftop bar and restaurant, with 270 degree views. Nice cocktails, great to watch the sunset over the city. Good for people-watching, too.
The zoo. It's a good zoo, easily worth an afternoon or morning. Night visits are reportedly even better.
Little India for eats. There's a very good food court, a block or two from the MRT station. Aircon, clean, good prices, huge menu, great food. Locals and tourists eat there.
There are plenty of other things to do, including harbour and/or river cruises, cable car to Sentosa Is, any number of interesting food courts, etc etc, but discovery is half the fun.
I used to consider Singers as a rather boring and sterile gateway to S.E.Asia, to be endured rather than enjoyed. But on our last trip we decided to spend several days there, and enjoyed it a lot, just for what it is. A clean, safe, vibrant city with lots of attractions in a small area.
 another thing to try, if you're in no hurry, is to just randomly take the MRT to anywhere, and get off just to see what's around nearby the station. The MRT is cheap, and fast.

The Night Zoo and Jurong Bird Park are both excellent.
Singapore Sling at Raffles Hotel.
The list is endless! :ok:

Orchard Towers. :E
Pasir Ris Park.Have a beer while looking out to sea and watch the guys catch fish from a pool dug in the ground which they pay the fishing rod owner handsomely for.East Coast Park for great pepper crab.Go ten pin bowling and have a jug or 5 of beer.Really not difficult to while away a few days.....
sorry but there is not a lot to do in singapore. people suggesting you go to the raffles and hang about with the thousands of tourists are on another planet. why do you want to hang around with all the backpackers for gods sake.
you do not need to go to little india to get a decent indian meal. eateries are everywhere with every kind of asian dish.
go across to the indonesian islands there are ferries all the time.
