German was in Town III
So, finally it was her last day in Singapore. It was unbelievable that she couldnt explore the whole island since Singapore is known as one of the smallest countries in the world. She still hasnt been to the East Coast, Sentosa, Kallang, and etc. This proved that Singapore has a lot more attractions worth you to pay a visit.
She likes water, i prefer milk.
I would prefer to have an authentic local breakfast at the hawker stall or local restaurant instead of hotel unless it is totally free. Food served at the hotel will always look extremely and perfectly good but what a glutton professional traveller concerns more is the taste.
My first round.
My second round.
My third round.
Ops, i still havent brought her see the merlion. Thus, soon after the buffet style breakfast at InterContinental Hotel, we headed to the most well-known tourist icon of Singapore.
Esplanade, or casually called as the durian.
The merlion that fronts Marina Bay and back the financial district.
Singapore flyer is not in this picture!
Hey, stop going away from us. We will look super tiny then.
I am superb thirsty.
She wants to get the water back to Hong Kong.
This tourist takes good picture.
A short rest under the Esplanade Bridge.
She likes the old colonial architectural buildings.
Me : What you miss the most? (Deciding where to have our lunch.)
Her : ViVo City! (Apparently, she likes shopping there.)
Me : Okay, but how about food? (Hoping to hear the right answer.)
Her : Erm, well i guess Ya-kun and the noodle. (Yosh!)
Me : Oh, really? Let`s go have what you wish to eat on your last day. ('Bingo' sign flashes over my head.)
Ya-kun Kaya Toast next wanna-be-model.
Enjoying Ya-kun`s teh tarik.
The toasted kaya bread was very crunchy while the teh tarik was perfectly smooth with a heavenly aroma even though it didnt have the frothy top to crown it.
Crunchies munchies toast, here i come.
The bus was full of passengers.
After the early teatime, we hung out around a small shopping mall for a while before hopping on a bus back to Bugis. There we went for our late lunch at the same restaurant and ordered what we each had on the first day. I seriously heart the fishball noodle.
Her mushroom minced meat noodle.
What attract me most was the texture of the fishball, it differs significantly to what i have been eating so far. Instead of grinding and forming, meats used for making the fishball is pounded that lends the texture more consistently firm and smooth. A bowl of fishball noodle only costs $3. Incredibly cheap.
My favourite fishball soup noodle.
She purposely waited for my noodle to come, just for the shot.
In front of the hotel.
Taxi driver was waiting for us.
The departure hall, Terminal 1, Changi International Airport
Wish i had done my job well. The 5 days 4 nights trip for Singapore was certainly not enough. Guess she gonna be back again for food, Sentonsa and more shopping. Anyway, i believe by the next time, i would be able to make my own diverse list for the good food as well as nice places to hang out that not written on Lonely Planet.
Welcome back to Singapore, German.
The feedback i got back from German and Agnes was pretty good. Guess the next time i back to Hong Kong again, i may be treated like a VIP. They promised to bring me out for nice Cantonese cuisine at the reputable restaurant. I am so looking forwards to it.
