Because in Singapore, Singapore

... you'll find happiness for everyone ♪ ♫

Yaxue and Gary were in Singapore over the weekend (!!!) and so we spent Friday and Saturday walking and eating and walking some more. Reunion with the LDR BFF and meet-the-boyfriend session uh, ha ha.

Photo dump ahead, because I behaved more like a tourist than them and took a shitload of photos:

Ah Chew Desserts

Mango pomelo sago with ice cream

Fresh Milk Steam Egg White with Chocolate Cookie (surprisingly good; surpassed expectations)

Wings Bar

This was an extremely random choice. Gary was mesmerised by the fountain at Clarke Quay so we sat at this aviation-themed bar since it was right next to it.

Lol @ the wings pun...?

Pimm's No. 1 ($50 for a 1.5L jug)

Swee Choon Dim Sum Restaurant

After the drinks, I had such an intense craving for greasy, unhealthy food. That, together with all the walking, made Swee Choon so shiok!!!

They loved the Beancurd Prawn Roll. I think it's better than their Har Kow.

G7 Sinma Live Bull Frog Claypot Porridge

田鸡 is basically chicken but better. It is the superior chicken. How does such a gross animal taste so good?


Yaxue wanted to eat at the Skypark, so we chose Spago out of the three restaurants. But it was expensive so we went to the lounge instead. Not the best idea...

Foie Gras-Espresso Mousse Tarts. $19 for these teensy weensy tarts that were the size of a $1 coin.

I know right, like omg the portions were huge! We were so full after eating one tart each, we could barely move!!!11!1!!1

Forbidden Kiss (left) and I'm So Sexy (right). Brief moment of awkwardness as I placed my orders.

Snapped about a hundred photos of the skyline at sunset and behaved like an embarrassing tourist.

So in conclusion... bar bites had shocking portions but drinks were really good. View was amazing, and I am glad we chose to go at 6pm because we got to catch the view at sunset and at night.

Marina Bay

Since Gary was obsessed with fountains, I told them about Wonder Full and we went to watch it, hehe I am like some MBS ambassador.

Now they are the ones being embarrassing tourists.

Eat ice cream also must act一个

Gluttons by the Bay

Since "dinner" was far from filling.

Awww yaaaassss.

HAHAHA embarrassing tourists part 2.

Part 3

Clarke Quay

Went back to Clarke Quay on Saturday night, bought some drinks and sat by the bridge.

This was not bad! Tastes like sparkling grape juice. Better than their apple cider.

Yey cui faces after being out and walking the whole day

A series of unfortunate photobombings

And now, featuring all the people who photobombed us, hahaha.

Hello uncle.

I was trying to take a pano for them, but this guy stole the limelight.

And during my second attempt, they were too distracted to look at the camera.

Wah this one very win. Quite literally the centre of attention.

Ok I photobombed Gary over here. Oops.

And more photos with Yaxue's selfie stick aka Super Asian Device.

Hehe my favourite shot because we look so candid and awkward. Also, we got photobombed again.

I like how we can somehow synchronise our poses without even trying, hehe.

Yay I am so exhausted right now, but it is the good kind of exhaustion. I feel physically tired from being too active and from going out, as opposed to being mentally drained from life.

It was really fun being like a tourist in my own country, travelling on foot everywhere I go and passing by places I would not have noticed otherwise. 

I think this weekend helped me appreciate the food in Singapore even more than before - how good food is easily available at affordable prices, and how you can find food anywhere at any time of the night.

One day, I will spend some alone time roaming about the island and being a tourist in my own home once again. 

Okay, eet eez four in the a.m., time 2 sleepz! Brb hibernating the whole of Sunday.
