hello again Singapore - Thousand Miles..

More than thousand miles I walk around Singapore..
I really enjoy time staying there, hope someday can living there more longer
I know I've posted a lot 'bout this, promise this will be my last post about this Singapore holiday :p
here are some nice picts and exciting moments during the trip!! enjoy..

Soekarno-Hatta International Airport (SHIA)

Ramenplay - 313 Somerset

Coldstone - Orchard Central (besides 313 Somerset)

the famous shopping malls area in SG
the oldest shopping mall here

it's always crowded there, especially on weekend.. feel like every people from the world gather here

catchy glowing shop :)

the famous uncle's ice

fish 'n chips
Botak Jones - Orchard Road
they serve european dish with a reasonable price and quite good taste.. and I think it's too much  *or maybe it's just me*, I suggest you share 1 dish for 2 people
what makes them unique is the different concept of a european cafe/restaurant, outdoor ambience that allows us to enjoy Orchard Road while eating the dishes

Around Prinsep Street
this is my everyday life during the weekdays
yes, my office is located here
crossing bridge where I usually pass through in the morning from the bus stop to office
I just know that the entrance of the bridge is inside the mall *like what most linked bridge in SG do*

the cafe and bars are up at night

POMO and Parklane
place where we can find food for lunch.. I usually have lunch in a foodcourt at Parklane with some colleagues.. But when we have more time, we go further like to Kopitiam (Bras Basah), Shim Lim, or Bugis for lunch

SOTA building
do you feel smthing weird in the photo above?? don't why I feel the building is just like a maquette when I saw this pict..

SOTA students' artworks

Thaipusam Parade
lots of Indian are out and do a costumes parade for 2 days.. I can't believe I was in Singapore when I saw everywhere is full of Indian..

Changi Airport
like what I've ever said: "there is always ending for every beginning"

see ya Singapore :)
thanks for being a nice place to stay
and thanks for all the nice people who have filled up my day by day there, helping me to get through my ignorance 'bout SG

hello again Singapore - Botanic Garden, China Town, Vivo City

*taraaaa* this is my fourth post about my 6 weeks trip to Singapore.. hope you haven't got enough of it yet :p
and since it's a quite long period of holiday trip so I think it's not my fault that I took loads of picts, right?
So this time I'm gonna tell you 'bout other 3 recommended places in Singapore

Singapore Botanical Garden
It becomes one of my destination for last trip since my friends said it's a nice place.. and also I saw some picts that people took there are lovely.. And yes it's really a good place to spend time relaxing there on weekend.. When I went there I saw some people are having time with their family, some are enjoying the scenery, jogging, or reading, and also some students are taking some picts of plants there for their school assignments..
Actually it's just like a forest, you can find many kinds of plants there but it's more organized with some signposts.. It's quite nice inside but after walking around for about 1 hour I started getting bored *yes I'm not a nature-lover indeed* but believe me you won't be regret on visiting there, especially if you wanna take nice picts
see!! even the crossing bridge is well-designed..

China Town
China Town is not the only area which is occupied by particular race, we can also find Little India, Arab Street, etc in Singapore.. You'll definitely find a different atmosphere once you arrive here, since almost all the building there is in Chinese style, and of course the Chinese people are dominated this area, some of them can only speak Chinese.. There are lots of shophouses here which sell many kinds of things related to Chinese culture.. From food, traditional medicine, clothes, till gift.. and what's pleasing is they are very cheap!!!

Chinese style shophouses
the street markets

Sri Mariamman Temple
I'm always enchanted by the carving on the top of the temples

Vivo City
located near Harbourfront, Vivo City becomes the anchor where people who come to Singapore by ferry transit.. That's why it's always crowded here almost everyday.. Besides, we can also go to Sentosa Island through Vivo City (suddenly remember I haven't taken a visit to USS due to the lack of time *too bad*)
what's interesting here is we can find nice roof garden.. I love it as it looks fun and cheerful in the morning, yet glistening at night
