SG - Day 3 & 4 (Eat, drink, shop and fly)

Sorry for the delay of this post. School holiday was over and I'm still adjusting to waking up at 6.15am and sleeping at 12am. Anyone knows the best way to sleep early without rolling on the bed for an hour? Don't tell me Music therapy because I sayang the battery and I'll end up singing in the middle of the night too.


Our Breakfasts
48's Lo Bak Gou

SL's western breakfast
(sikit till kasian...)

My Ayam Pangang~

Yeah, I was famished after vomiting the night before so I had a super heavy breakfast. Those are not fried rice, its plain rice with curry sauce. Not bad leh.

There won't be much pictures for our day 3 because we're all busy shopping.. not for ourselves, for other people. Shopped for the fat guy, his mom, my mom, my dad, my friends.... So most of the photos you see will be food pictures.

Yakun's toast and eggs

My Crispy Chicken from Shihlin.

鱿鱼羹 (Cuttlefish soup)

Okay, the cuttlefish soup might not seem very appealing to you but it is damn delicious. The vicemilli inside had a very nice texture, not soggy and not too hard. And the crispy chicken, I keh-kiang said yes when the kokochai asked if I wanted chili powder. Its nice, but too spicy. Made me chew and drool, sweat and still wanted more.

I have always wanted to go Taiwan for long long time and eat from Shih-Lin-Ye-Shi from one end to another. Then go Wu-Fen-Pu, 101, Ximending... Hai. I wanna go to Taiwan ah!!! Eh? Can see concert in Taipei Dome also wor. Sigh.... When will my wish come true?

Our Dinner

Thank God for having SL in our trip because I really carried those shopping bags till I wana pa-lan-ting (fall down) liao. For our first stop, I bought myself 6 books of Kindaichi comics and had to carry it till end of our shopping trip. Later I went to Lucky Plaza and helped my colleagues to buy 5 bottles of perfumes! Not those 15 or 20ml one okay, those big big 80ml bottles one.

SL would help us to carry out shopping bags and let us shopped freely without worries whereas he just sat there and waited with all other mens with baby strollers or their wives punya bags.

Big bags, small bags

(SL and 48 passed me theirs to let me pose like hardcore shopaholic)

Because of the GSS, there's damn many tourists lah. Even all those branded stores macam pasar ikan! I went into one of them, hoping to get myself a wallet so I went to one of the counter. There's a China (as in real Chinese who speaks with strong China accent.. No offense, but I find that kinda accent annoying with the tongue rolling thing..Okay lah, Faye Wong is acceptable because she's cool) lady.. or auntie who stood beside looking at wallets too.

So I talked to the tall, cute and cleanly shaved sales assistant that I wished to have a look at a certain wallet. He took it out for me and I had a quick look at it, but I didn't like the compartment. So I put it down and wanted to look for an alternative. And... the China lady beside me quickly said in her annoying tone, "I wanna see her one!".

I find it a bit rude and continued. Soon I realized whatever I wanted to see, she will checked it after me demanding the sales to take it from me. So yeah, I hilang mood and left the place after that. I wonder what happen if I told the guy that I want to buy whatever pieces she's holding in her hand, will she fight with me? Of course I will kalah lah, I where got so much money to act-seh.

Enough of shopping drama.

Getting ready for Clark Quay

No! Are you crazy? What makes you think that I would go out with two braided tails? Its just my shortcut way to create curls in my hair lah but it didn't work.

Us posing in our hotel

with my towel and SL / my jeans

We all wore our new dress because we wanted to. Hahhahaa. I was a bit concerned with the length of my dress and 48 reassured me that no one would stare at us, even short till can see butt also no one cares. Hahhahaa. True true. I felt really comfy with what I was wearing because unlike in Brunei, those people in Sg don't give a -toot- with other people's dai-chi (matter).

Why ah? Is it because our population here in Brunei is too small that's why subconsciously everyone thinks that everyone is connected. So must stare like sakai and scan in brain who this laki or bini this is. Somemore is obvious stares from head to toe lagi!

Your hair is yellow in color? Asian don't wanna be Asian, try to be angmoh.
You're wearing sleeveless? Ah meh.... So sexy let guy see, rugi ah!
You're wearing short skirt or pants? If got molested you find yourself one.
You're wearing make up? Gatal eh.
So late liao still outside the street? Must be doing something bad. Must tell your parents!

At MRT station

Not much people liao so felt more comfy when smiling

We left the map in the hotel room and made a few wrong turns but its okay, in the end we still reached Clark Quay. Sibeh happening man.

(Sorry, crappy night mode because I don't have a tripod)

Saw those GMax and G5 Extreme Swing ? I so wanted to try it out but I was wearing pretty short with my newly bought $10 wedges. Again, 48 have acrophobia and I didn't ask if SL will wanna go try with me.

My newly bought wedges

Nice or not? $10 only leh~ And it does feel comfy

We sat by the riverside and had a look at how it works first. After seeing them being tossed and flipped up in the air, all of us had "jelly legs" (脚软!) and 48 said if I'm going to take that ride and she's looking from down there, she's so going to cry. Hahhahahaa.

So we just had icecream and hot balls by the riverside having wind blowing on our faces and watching people from the opposite shouting.

We saw the queue was long and decided to join in

Our green tea with red bean ice cream!

Very nice okay. Really worth the wait lah.

Our hot balls

Er.. just deep-fried flour balls with butter something?

It was on Friday when we went to Clark Quay, so you can imagine how happy was everyone. TGIF mah. In Brunei, I only have TGIT and TGIS (Thursday and Saturday), the eagerness is split into halves.

I remember fat guy telling me that at first he thought he'll feels happy for having two "weekend" and now all he feels is having two "MONDAYs"! What to do? After one day of rest on Friday, Saturday have to potong-steam, go working for the whole day again...

Note: Instead of Saturday and Sunday, Brunei's weekly offdays are Friday and Saturday. Alang-alang one. Unless you're working for BSP or Shell-contracted companies or banks lah.

We walked aimlessly around the area and I told them I wanna pass by, just pass by can liao, M.O.S. I'd read about it from blogs, heard from other people so I wanted to know how it looks like from the outside.

It was only 10.30pm when we're there. The aircon damn syok lah, even from outside can feel the cool breeze liao. Then we looked up and saw a banner writing complimentary entries for HSBC card holders!

I know I make right choice for having credit cards with HSBC. Hahhahahaa.
Go Singapore also got advantage. Since the entry is free (before 11pm), so we went in lor. See see also song. (Remember, I'm very sua-ku)

Er.. Us again?

Before the staffs put the "Reserved" sign on every single table

We're early. In fact too early. People only start pou midnight one. So didn't get to see much chio girls dancing, but did saw a lot of pretty Singaporean ladies lah. But not the boys though. Also got see a lot of young teenage boys (like just turn 18 one) dressing up like young-bengs. Working shirt with a black coat, and a fancy scull brooch.

Our drinks, SL belanja

Then... we changed venue for second round,
hunting for supper.

Nonnie's camwhore theory #1:
The one nearest to the camera always ended up looking like pighead.

Night mode

when the camera was placed still on the table

After having bad experience of me puking after drinking, this time they're more careful. I didn't vomit this time because I still had room in my stomach, meaning.. I didn't stuff myself during dinner time. True that my face will turn red after 2 sips but, I still can walk and talk properly one.

Our snack platter that cost $45

The chix wings and the yam thingie were really delicious lah!

People must be thinking that SL is one lucky dude

But, the truth was.. He was our kuli.

That almost ends my last night in Singapore. Followed by 30 mins of packing and 48 figuring how to stuff all her things into her luggage and backpack without exploding.

She asked me to buy one but.. but.... Hello, she's living in Tasmania... sibeh cold there of course need that lah. I'm staying in Seria, Brunei Darussalam. Summer all year round. Plus my house aircon only on after 8pm. Think my feet not smelly enough ah?

Her other happy bought

Its not because she likes the bag then she bought it, its for another reason...

The size looks okay to you right? Wait till you see this

Damn big okay!

We're joking next time she can just put pillow and blankie inside
to bring her baby out next time.

Our flight return home was at night so we still had a day left to walk around and shop more. First thing of course eat breakfast lah.

Our toys from ordering kid's meal

LOL! Three adults ordering 3 sets of kid's meal. Well, andang muka-tembok plus no one knows us one so scare what malu? As long as we're not rejected (like how Pizza hut rejected me! Humpph! Stupid Pizza Hut didn't let me order my kid's meal) can liao. Don't you think kid's meals are the best? Just right portion with all your favorite food together in a plate.

Spinach tofu

Prawn Roll

Fried Calamari

Us at the Fountain of Wealth

Angry lor. That time we wanted to ask an Indian guy to help us take photo one. Sekali I hadn't even complete my sentence then he didn't even look at me and walked pass me. I just turned my head and said very loudly, "Yes! That's very kind of you!". In the end some Chinese uncle helped us take.

Rushed back to hotel ready to go to the airport

SL testing his toys before dumping them to the bin

Iwan came and went to the airport together. Malu lah, he paid so much for us and we only gave him a Thank You card. Even our last meal together also that guy paid. Its like he has a sensor or something. No matter how also cannot snatch over the bill!

It was still early when we arrived the airport, around 5.30pm. The counter hadn't open for check in yet so we headed for dinner first.

Our food

Love the Samsui Ginger Chicken that Iwan insisted that we must try because that's their signature dish. It tasted like those Hainam Steam Chicken (chicken rice) and the grated ginger sauce, BEST man!

Us at the restaurant

At 6.30pm when we came down...

Freaking long queue....

And they HAD TO upgrade their system during that time.

Our luggages (All 3 of us)

Still okay lah. Because we saw some 3 Malay ladies with 4 trolleys full of baggages topped up like we had. And thanks to them for clogging the whole line.

Since the line was really long, 48 then decided to go to Terminal 3 to check in first and meet up again at the entrance. Again, thanks to our "status", she nearly missed the flight again because the officers didn't quite get our travel document. Yellow oh Yellow, we need you.

Finally at 7.50pm, we're done checking in and meet up with 48 again

One last group photo
Again, Iwan has the biggest smile.

I wanted to hug Iwan but that silly guy only wanted to shake hands... -_-"
Then SL and 48 said, "Aiyah.. let her hug lah, later she cannot sleep ah..." Hhahahahaha! Stupid friends. Gave him a tight hug, asked him MUST TAKE CARE! and nearly cried, waved him bye and cannot tahan seeing him behind the glass doors.

2 hours later, back in Brunei and lost my Simpur keychain because someone broke the zipper of my luggage. And SL's one felt really wet.

Sigh.. RBA, sorry to say but.. I feel Air Asia is better than you!
At least they never lost my luggage and broke my bag!

Nonnie King said...

Wardah : Cos... Cos... Cos.. I know how to hug better than cheek-to-cheek mah. Its like, kiss but dont kiss the face but still have the kissing sound.


Hug is easier, open arms and hug tight.
