Singapore Day 3

As I mentioned earlier, I reached home almost 6.30am already… so just slept for few hours and need to get ready to go out d….



Went for lunch first… at Sommerset food court.. I ordered fish soup + milk… quite nice lo… the taste not so strong of flavouring.. so quite nice…



Friend ordered Thai Style Fried Rice.. quite nice also.. but portion very big.. cannot finish >.<



Shopped around in Sommerset till 4pm then rushed to Sentosa… Naive me didn’t know Sentosa sooooo big… thought can walk finish in half day… >.<



I wanted to go Universal Studio, Hard Rock Hotel, Victoria Secret shop… all need a lot of walking…. and it was raining by the time I reached >.<



They have this huge Heshey’s Chocolate store at the Universal Studio entrance…



And Garrett Popcorn is just beside Heshey’s… I didn’t try the popcorn cuz colleague told me it was very very sweetening … and quite ex oso.. so didn’t try lo…



My purpose going Universal Studio just to snap pic… wait till I really got the $$ oni I will go in have a look cuz the entrance fee of SGD 70+ is way too expensive for me…



And they have this cute candy store which full of candies just opposite Universal Studio’s entrance…. damn cute la!



This is really an attraction place to attract people…



With all the cute candies inside… really attracted lot of school kids…



Too bad they do not allow pictures taking inside the store… cuz everything is just too cute to be eaten.. lol…



We only bought ticket for Song of The Sea.. that’s the main thing I wanted to see in Sentosa out of all the rides, underwater world etc… the ticket cost SGD 10… which is still alright…



It was still raining by the time we reached the beach… which is also the last station of the monorail… a lot of people already went in to wait… the show only start at 7.40pm.. but by 7pm we also went in and wait..



We literally sat under the rain and waited for the show to start >.< friend said what a good thing to kick start year 2011… lol…


It’s alright la… luckily when the show started, the rain also stopped. 🙂



At 9pm there is another crane show… but we cannot make it already as I bought a pants in Uniqlo Sommerset and need to get it by 10pm… else I can only get it duno when d…


Then went to Clark Quay for dinner.. I wanted to have mexican food… but we saw this Spanish food quite interesting…



So we opted to have our dinner at this place ~ Octapas



The food was really delicious… but the portion was too small and it was a bit pricy lor… if we chosen Mexican food earlier… I doubt it will cost us that much… We only ordered 3 tapas & 1 drink and the bill came out to SGD 55 =_____=|||


Last we need to tapao Burger King back home cuz friend said d tapas wasn’t filling at all … lol…


I will be back Sentosa for I have yet to conquer you~!

My first meal of 2011 ~ MCD


Yes, I literally stayed awake for 24 hours >.<


The story goes like this:


After the fireworks at Marina Bay Sands Hotel, we rushed to the nearest bus stop, expecting our bus to reach by then. Then there is another bus stop in front… so we decided to walk there just in case we couldn’t get up as the crowd was building up…


We waited for 30min… saw 1 bus came… but of different route… and there was another bus at the back… so friend and I decided to take the bus and switch to MRT when we reach another of the MRT station…


The jam in front of Helix bridge was so severe that the bus need to take 30 min to reach the bus stop… and everyone was pushing each other to go in… fine! When we were inside… the road still jam like hell… we were stucked there >.<


By the time we reached Bugis bus stop… it was 2pm.. we rushed down to the MRT station and the last train was to Pasir Ris… different direction of the one we wanted to take =_____=|||


So the smart us… decided to take cab… unfortunately… all the cabs were hired or on call… we waited for 1.5 hours… friend and I were hungry by then…



MCD! My very first meal of year 2011 was MCD nuggets set … it was quite pricy for the MCD in SG… this meal set of 9pcs nuggets + french fries + coke = SGD 8 >.< Even if dollar to dollar… it was still quite expensive…


We ate, talked till really cannot stand it anymore… walked to Bugis MRT station cuz the MRT normal operating hour is 5.20am… too bad for us… they rescheduled the operating hour to 6.20am as they closed late on New Year’s Eve >.<


That was then… we decided to take cab…


Lucky us… we got it finally…. at 5.40am .. and it was a Mercedes Benz =______=|||


Reached home 6.20 am… beh tahan d… went to sleep cuz I’m scheduled to go Sentosa today~!!!

Singapore Trip Day 2 + New Years Eve celebration~!

Day 2: Woke up in the morning.. need to have a good breakfast to feed the stomach….


So we went to Bugis… there is a hawker center with lots of food there… but we don’t know which to choose… and we saw 1 porridge stall got quite some customer lining up….



The porridge was quite a big bowl with free “you zha kueh” = you tiao 油条 in Singapore… we added 1 pei dan into this chicken porridge….



Walked around Bugis… then meet up Erin at Raffles Place…



She suggested we have some thing light as we just had our breakfast but she was so hungry…  and we don’t really know what to eat… then we passed by this shop ~ Cedele… she said they have very good pancake…


But since I’m still full.. I just went for something really light ~ Toast bread + bacon + tomatoes



It was sooooooooooooo yummy lor! Should try to do it at home…. the bacon… the tomatoes… wah! So yummy~! Felt so hungry now >.<


After that we wanted to go back to Haji Lane…. so have to bid goodbye to Erin…



Till we see each other again dear… miss you much… stay pretty~! 🙂


Haji Lane has turned to be livelier… with more wall painting.. and more shops… cool~! But I didn’t take much pic… except this cuz it wasn’t there
the last time I’m at Haji Lane….



and I didn’t realized that was over a year ago >.< Time really flies…. and I saw a shoe at SGD 50…. again… I didn’t buy it… same like last time.. I saw a heels at SGD 54….didn’t buy as well….lol…



Next… back to Bugis Junction for manicure… cost me SGD 18… if don’t convert is consider cheap… almost same like MYR rate… bt if convert sure expensive la!  I purpose choose this matte dark red… damn nice… bt not lasting.. the colour got off the next day >.<



And by the time we done with our nails… it was raining outside… we stopped by for our tea time since we don’t have umbrella as well…



The laksa not bad.. but bit watery…. but then the wan tun mee tasted sweet sweet ei >.< not nice… but friend said that one consider not bad d… some even worse =_________=|||


Next stop: Marina Bay Sands Hotel + Casino!!!



My pictures first la…. what so nice about Marina Bay Sands Hotel and it’s casino if without me? 😛



However, pictures on that later… need to eat first cuz walked till hungry d… the mall connected with Marina Bay Sands and it’s casino is so big… walked till leg pain… and it also got lots of branded shop… hehehe… I even visited Gucci and the service damn good although I didn’t buy (sure won’t buy la.. it cost at least 2 months of my salary for a small bag >.< )



Anyway, there isn’t much shops open in the mall yet… and the food court was totally a disaster… and 1 of the italian restaurant was fully booked… we have no choice but to go for Beanstro ~ By Coffee Bean… I wanted to try something special… food that I cannot find in Penang… but…. it’s ok la… Penang don’t have Beanstro… acceptable… and oh oh.. did I mentioned the queue was super long as well =____________=||| but still not as bad as the food court…



The food not bad… quite nice lo… and ngam ngam we waiting for our food the time, the center of the pool got water came down from the ceiling… made it an attraction for people to stop by to watch… and our seat just by the pool… so freaking cold~!



Sure need to take a pic with the casino label right? Best thing for this casino ~ entry for Singaporean / PR is SGD 100… non refundable & non returnable… but foreigners can go in for free! Although there were limitation on the clothing.. but they wasn’t that strict… cuz I’m wearing flip flop actually… and they got sign board showing that no shorts, flip flops allowed! Well.. I guess I’m presentable so the security didn’t expect I’ll be wearing flip flop 😀


By this time… it was almost 10pm… we walked out to find a good spot for the count down fireworks later… and we stopped at the helix bridge in front of Marina Bay Sands hotel..



See the crowd! Don’t even have much rooms to walk >.<



Marina Bay Sands Hotel… is like a space ship… with 3 supportive “legs”…



I didn’t go up the observation deck of Marina Bay Sands Hotel cuz I don’t have enough time.. probably gona do it on the next round when I’m there… and it cost SGD 20 to go up there =_____=||



Fireworks that night really nice… but my stupid camera took very long to snap a pic… so I just took a few… but can really feel it was just so close to me…


After the fireworks… we walked so fast to the bus station… waited for 1hr only 1 bus came… so we just took it and thought of transiting at Bugis Junction…. it was quite a long story. Will update it in next post…


Anyhow, I managed to reach home at 6 in the morning… best experience ever 😀

Weekend in Singapore

Went to Singapore over the last weekend….it was meant to be a mind relaxing trip… but my mind was not controllable… kept thinking the man..been dreaming of him as well…. *sigh*…


Anyway… back to my trip to Singapore… I found that there were really really a lot of foreign workers from China, Vietnam, Burma, India, etc in SG.. I wonder why… hmmm….. it’s like stepping out of Orchard/Vivo City you can see foreigners all over the street… hardly see Singaporean… ok la.. I might be a bit exaggerated… lol… but really everywhere also can see foreigners… those from Asia one… not those ang mo…


I took night bus to Singapore on Friday night…Reached SG was Saturday 7 morning… walked to MRT station to meet up girlfriend and check in to hotel…..


#1 ~ Saw this very nice condominium on the way to MRT station… felt a sudden rush to snap a pic to daydream awhile…thinking how nice it will be if I’m able to stay there…it is really nice condo isn’t it? Looks very clean and classy… 🙂


Went for lunch after checked-in hotel…. simply choose a Taiwanese shop at Plaza Singapura…went there to check out telco’s plan as girlfriend wanted to get a new phone plan….

Dinner at this Han’s place at Marina Place…. suppose wana walk to Merlion there.. but girlfriend don’t know the place… and we kinda lost at Raffles Place-Marina Place… then my leg was pain cuz of my shoe… ended up having dinner inside Marina Place…..need to self service sumore… lol… I felt that it’s like a trend in SG… order + pay first… then the food will be sent to you… hmm… easier for the staff… 🙂

Lucky me… this time I didn’t feel sick cuz I slept all the way till the plane almost landed… too tired…


I was really fortunate to have supportive friends in SG…. thanks to their accompany and hospitality I had the opportunity to visit SG again… thou I was suppose to free my mind and my stupid mind doesn’t listen to me… but… I’m glad that I went to SG…


Thou this trip added a hole in my pocket… but… whatever la! Don’t care! Just spend nia la! lol…

My Singapore short trip on 23-25 Oct 09

This is another out-dated blog. I don’t have time to post it cuz too many blogs waiting to be posted before this one.. lol.. (sounds like I’m so busy.. but I’m really so busy ma :P)


Anyway, the main purpose was to attend Nuffnang Asia Pacific blog awards dinner. Iwas not one of the lucky winner. I’m just a sleeping member of Nuffnang Malaysia. LoL…


Anyway, it was a grand event and I won’t be posting much info about that cuz too many people blog about it. I’m representing my company to attend…so nothing much to blog about also… if I’m one of the nominated blog owner then it will be a different story. LOL…


We reached there around 5pm. Straight to hotel check-in. Then went to search for something to eat.

Food b4 NN Singapore

Me & SY @ Nuffnang Singapore


The hotel’s dinner.. ahem *cough* was not that filing at all. The soup not bad. The appetizer also not bad. The main course also not bad. Of all that were not bad… they were bad cuz they were not filling at all. The dessert was too sweet for me.. and so small piece. If it tasted nice, then sure not enough la! But lucky it didn’t taste nice at all… so… small piece was enough 😛 I just ate the strawberry only… what a waste >.<

Appetizer @ NN Singapore 2Main Course @ NN Singapore 3Dessert @ NN Singapore 4


Super tired that day. Dozed off once I hit the bed. The hotel on the other hand, was really nice. We stayed in Link Hotel situated at Tiong Bahru there… very simple and cozy. The funny part, we were on the same table as the Link Hotel’s staff. LOL…

Link Hotel @ Singapore 7


The next day we had a very simple breakfast then off we go to meet up Erin. It’s been like 3 years since I last saw her. Well… I met her when I was on my Work and Travel USA programme to Sandusky, Ohio, USA. We were housemates back then. Then she went to Berkeley for her studies and I back to Malaysia for my studies. I kept telling her I will be going SG very soon… but the soon was 3 years later… LOL.. so funny…


Missy and I took MRT to her house. She came to meet us up. We put the luggage back home then out to Haji Lane.


Haji Lane is the latest shopping places for Singaporean. The clothing there was unique and they even have blog shops there. The design was quite special. But pricing wise… hmm…only some were worth to buy. 🙂 I saw one nice shoe.. wanted to buy… which is SGD 54… Missy asked me come back Penang to buy cuz might be cheaper… but till now I can’t find the similar one.. sad.. blame her

Haji Lane Singapore 7


After Haji Lane, we went to the newly opened shopping mall ION mall @ Orchard Road.

Nice car @ ION Mall Singapore 8Me @ ION Mall Singapore 9ION Mall Singapore 10Erin & I @ ION Mall Singapore 11Missy & I @ ION Mall Singapore 12ION Singapore 10


Dinner at this cafe.. forgot the name…should be P.S Cafe… need booking one >.< Environment very nice… cosy and quiet…


Erin’s friend was working that night and we got free fries from him while we were waiting for the boys for almost 1 hours!!!

P.S Cafe @ Singapore 13P.S Cafe @ Singapore 14Fries @ Singapore 15Salad - P.S Cafe @ Singapore 16Cucuk Chicken - P.S Cafe @ Singapore 17


Nah! These two guys made us waited for them 1 hour – Marcus and Britmand >.<


Us - P.S Cafe @ Singapore 18

>> Met them in Work and Travel USA programme as well… 🙂 Britmand in the same department as Sherine and Erin, Marcus and I were in the same department, same food stall 🙂


After dinner we walked around that area and took a cab to Orchard … need to use MRT back home ma… 🙂 Met Sheryl, Lionel, Marisa, etc at Orchard. hehe…Didnt take any pictures.


The next day we went to the mall near MRT station for our lunch. But the restaurant didn”t allow us to take pictures… sien… I took the food picture only one nia… sad….

Erin and I @ Singapore 20Lunch @ Singapore 20


Time to go home… sad sad… 1 weekend over d… Erin gave me one Victoria Secret lotion… which she promised to send me ages ago… lol… but we didn’t have check in luggage… and the lotion was 200ml… >.< I tried to purchase some liquid in the duty free shops… but they directly sealed the bag.. so I couldn’t put the lotion in… in the end… I bought 2 small bottles fr Guardian which cost me 1.50 SGD!!! MoThaFuCker… so Freaking EXPENSIVE LA!!! Bo huat..I need to save the VS Lotion cuz it’s Erin’s presents to me..


So it looks like this:

Victoria Secret Lotion from Erin 22


There goes my weekend…. a very very short and rush trip to Singapore. But thanks to Erin and Mom that allowed us to stay at their place.. Thanks to them! Cheers!
