Uniquely Singapore – I


so this was actually the more exciting part of my brief holidays last month. after a 2-days stopover in KL. I headed to the lion city. finally!!! and ppl were like “what? U’ve never been to Singapore while u were in the peninsula back then?” and i’ll went “ya la… so kesian right? The nearest i can get my arse geographically to that land was when i was in Johor couple of times then and i could only dart my eyes longingly at the Teberau Strait wishing i could swim over and meet the arrogant merlion” (crapping again!)

it was a super rush holiday too so i didn’t manage to go to many places that i’ve listed to visit =.=’ so much for my weeks of research and the impressive itinerary i planned! hiskh!! Didn’t get to go to the Night Safari, didn’t get to get up close and personal with the dolphins at the Waterworld, didn’t get to go for the DuckRide, and didn’t get to ride the Singapore Flyer!!! Huhuhuhu…. T_T but nvm those, i was contented enough though cos my main agenda was to meet the merlion and to shoot some of the infamous Singapore skyline.

So now let the photos do all the talking. I will TRY not to post photo of myself *emphasising the word TRY* there are sooooooooo many photos so i’ve to split them into two-days-photo-travel-log. so here’s day 1.

we reached at Terminal One (i think) then we wanted to find a bank. NOT an ATM and NOT a money changer. a real bank. so someone said there’s a bank at Terminal Two. But when we were there, we didn’t explore the whole terminal so we went to Terminal Three. Good thing is there’s this MRT linking all these terminals every 2 or 3 mins.

way to Terminal Three esp for SIA international flights

when reached Terminal Three i saw these kids…. haha… i think they were from some kindie that were doing some educational tour to the airport….. so cute….

Terminal Three is apparently far bigger and nicer than the other two. but sadly there’s no bank there too!! we asked the ppl there and again they said there’s one at Terminal Two. but i was too lazy to commute back there and the time was precious so we decided to just took off to the city from there.

some unique restaurant at the airport. they made it like those in 'wong fei hong' era style with this prison-like wall. this restaurant serve duck rice. someone wanna try it but i was still full so x jadi :p

remember we were looking for bank?! so we finally found one near the place we stayed. took damn long inside the bank for the business. half day has gone just like that T_T…. so once everything was done we only managed to go to nearby shopping malls which unfortunately sells damn crazy siao super overrated high end branded stuffs!! huhuhuu…. T_T went around surveyed for lenses but all were more expensive than malaysia. how come??!! =.=”

by the time we stepped out from the buildings, it was already dark and the stomach started to growl T_T after refreshing ourselves i suggested to go to this place called CHIJMES that i’ve looked up from the STB online (my so-called itinerary). BAD IDEA!!! esp if u are with a true blue oriental food lover. we reached there but we didnt even step inside. we’ve wasted a taxi trip and walked away to get another cab. we had to asked the cab driver for recommendation for local chinese food and next thing we know we were in chinastreet =.=”

u i will know this is a china street if there are red lantern everywhere...
