Singapore lah!

Last weekend, Daut and I went to Singapore, lah. Second of many, lah. Oh lalala! Haha. When you're in Singapore, just remember to add the word "lah" in every english sentence! :)

Singapore is a very small country and with its flawless transportation system and MRT, going around did not present much of a problem. We met up with my cousin Ate Roscelle and Daut's cousin, Ate Darling. From the airport, we proceeded to Hougang Ave. where Ate Roscelle lives. I noticed that most Singaporeans live in high rise residential buildings. We have condominiums in the Philippines but it costs a fortune!

After unpacking, we went to Suntec City where we embarked our Duck Tour. Great fun riding the amphibious vehicle a.k.a. "duck" on land and on sea. The hour long journey circulated around Singapore's Civic district, running past the Padang, City Hall building, War Memorial and the Victoria theater. My favorite part was the splashdown to the Singapore river adjoining the Marina Bay. Gotta take a photo with the merlion. As an added bonus, the view of the sunset was amazing! Oh how I love watching sunsets fade away! <3
Afterwards, we went aboard the 540 feet Singapore flyer for a breathtaking 360 panoramic view of the City. It is said to be the largest observation wheel in the world. Just before boarding, we experienced an interactive gallery called "the Journey of dreams" that provides a deeper appreciation of Singapore and the iconic Singapore flyer.

The ride inside the capsule lasted about 30 minutes and we did see the wonderful sights of Singapore. It was absolutely beautiful to see everything light up at night. Our journey of dreams has just begun. :)
After the tour, we were treated to a sumptuous dinner of chicken rice, chilli crabs, fish and Mee Goreng a.k.a. pancit at Makansutra. Singapore is a marvelous place to enjoy food. But it can be expensive and can make up a major cost of our travel expenditure. Thanks to Ate Darling, we were able to pig out some of Singapore's best dishes without burning a hole in our pockets! :)
If you really want to experience local Singapore food at its best, try the hawker centers within the neighborhood. It serves a diversity of Singaporean food at an affordable price. I'll be back for more foodtrips, lah!
