Tourist for the day

I've been working here in Singapore for 10 months & I never really been anywhere that much. So I'm trying to be a 'tourist for the day' along with my nephew who follows his mom (my sis) for a work trip.

So y'day we start off early thinking that we can probably cover few places. We decided to visit the Science Centre Singapore (keep in mind that he's only 12!) & buy the 3-in-1 package. So I bought the tix which include Science Centre admission + Dinosaur Live! Exhibition + iMax movie-Flying Monsters. Adult tix $30, children under 12 is $22 for the whole thing. We spend approx. 5 hours there! Plus it was raining like crazee outside so we were basically stuck in there.

Around 4pm we decided to headback to the hotel where my sis is staying & just sleep! We were wayyyy too tired to go anywhere else!

But around 8pm we set off again to Little India to visit the ever famous Mustafa Centre. We have my sis, my sis's friend & my ever loyal 'cinta hati' with us. We had the best Chicken & Mutton Briyani at Tandoori Restaurant just beside Mustafa Centre entrance (the first entrance if you are walking from Farrer Park MRT station). The mint sauce they served is the bomb y'all! :)

But the funniest thing was we couldn't find the exit door at Mustafa Centre because the place is super duper huge! And when we did find the exit, we were actually at the end of the centre!!! Which is basically at the end of the Syed Alwi Street! We had to walk quite far to get back to the entrance we came in! Haha... But at least none of us cry or show any tantrum (thumbs up!). No wonder Mustafa Centre is open 24 hours because it took us at least 30mins to find the exit! It was really pack with all kind of things. The only thing they didn't sell is houses & cars! Lol!!!

But it was a fun day :)

But today the only place we manage to visit is the Streets Hong Kong Cafe for our brunch located at Liang Courts beside the hotel. Haha.. We are still tired from y'day.

Oh yeah the hotel is situated at Clarke Quay. THE hotspot of Singapore. Pretty cool eh? We can see the Marina Bay Sand area from the room, the river is just 2mins walk & the evercool hang out place is just downstairs.

We might go for the rivercruise later on once we get our full energy back! And tonight is all about Arab St.! :)))

Tomorrow will be even better! My 2nd USS trip! USS stands for Universal Studio Singapore. We are all prepared with raincoats (bought it at Mustafa Centre for $1.50/each) because it is the rainy season here. Boo!

Oh I'll just blog about it on the next entry! :p

Hv a splendid weekend everyone! Especially to ppl in Ireland, hv a good looooooong weekend! And Happy Halloween y'all!
