Meet Up

When I was in Singapore, I met up with one of my friends whom I haven't been seeing for quite some time after he left KL and got a job there. Funny how some friends that you know through other people will eventually be one of those that you would keep in touch compared to those whom you know during school days.



I got to know Calvin at a party in Zouk through my Ipoh buddy and after that we kept in touch through MSN and later we even celebrated his birthday last year at Maria Kitchen. In Singapore, he was nice enough to come to Orchard Rd all the way from Sentosa to meet up with me at my hotel. He paid for my drinks being a gentleman and also trying not to break my record of spending only SGD20 in two days when I was there. I probably will write a post on "how to just spend 20 dollars in 2 days in Singapore!" Lol...

Anyways, this is just a post that brought back some memories of The Land of Impeccable Innocence and Justice. I have been so disciplined there by crossing at designated spots and pedestrian crossings only. Since I don't have a habit of liking chewing gums, or smoking cigarettes, there isn't a problem for me. I really like the country. It's so clean, proper and in order. The sales staff at the shops were polite too and not too nosy like some of the sales staff in Malaysia who follows wherever you walk to fearing that you might slip a dress or two into the big handbag of yours!



Although I have been to Singapore quite a few times, I've never taken a picture of the Merlion upclose. And the saddest thing is, it had to be my camera phone since I did not have a camera with me! Bummer...

I shall post more of the good food I had there next time. Ciao and happy weekend!

Even though everything's so expensive after conversion, I still love Spore! Stayed at lousy hotel around Orchard Road, sumting like those shophouse ones along Bukit Bintang S$100 = around RM230. In Malaysia can stay in very nice hotel liao (govt rate) with breakfast! I love hanging around Orchard Road...

I agree with you - Singapore is such a nice place. Standard of living also pretty high. Food there are much cheaper if you are working there earning Sing Dollars. Compared to Malaysia earning RM, food here so expensive! I love Singapore!!

STP: At least they don't have political drama like us!

Foongpc: Yup. And our salary is depressing!

It's a tiny little piece of island, packed with basically everything under the sun inside it, but still, you will get bored of it very soon. Come once in a while is nice, but don't stay here.

Horng: Lucky you... I have lost most of my primary school friends.

Ahhup: Yeah I find it nice just for a short trip or holiday. I come here for all the good food.
