Singapore Day 0 Pics


January 12, 2006 12:01 AM

These photos were taken on the day described in “Blogging in Singapore“.


Got to my hotel around 4:30pm. I stayed at Allson’s – SGD$130 per night. Not bad lah. Comfy and clean. And afterall, it’s only for sleeping and showering in. As for the other nocturnal activity, I didn’t get lucky. 😛

Swee met me at the hotel and we took the MRT from Bugis to City Hall? Can’t remember. Was a short ride anyway.

We were meeting Tai-Sing at Waraku for Japanese food. The place is at the ground floor of the Starhub building. This is Swee (l) and Tai-Sing (r) – both of them used to work at my restaurant in Perth.

The food was good – we had some shabu-shabu thing and another one with the flame-proof paper holding the food over a small fire. It’s just shabu-shabu in any other way.

After dinner we headed over to Ice Cold Beer for some erm … what else? Beer!

The place is an old colonial nyonya shop-house refurbished into a bar. The interior was suitably comfy and atmospheric.

We ordered 3 large Hoegaardens. Mmm.

After the beers, we strolled along Orchard Road, crowd-watching and looking at the Xmas lights.


We then shared a cab and got dropped off at our separate locations. Thus ended the day that I arrived in Singapore.

    Nice photos! I love Orchard Rd (I know it’s touristy of me, but I love watching all the people)!

    Looking forward to more photos. Take any of Langkawi? What was the most memorable part of your trip?

    cw: thanks! 🙂

    Yeah I took a bit of Langkawi and Penang as well. Most memorable part of my trip – erm, can’t go past the food. Hah! Seriously tho I’d be hard-pressed to pick one part. I loved every bit of it! 🙂 Basically what I said in my post about my post-holiday thoughts.
