1 day in Singapore

March 09, 2009 Crystalicious 3 Comments

I should have written the Crystal's traveling episode long time ago. But...nevermind, i'll start it from now. So previously, i have few traveling episodes to Hochiminh (vietnam), Hanoi (yeah, even though I'm going back home. It's kinda called traveling) and now it's about Singapore. I had last minute traveling plan to Singapore on Thursday afternoon, and Sat morning, i had to go. Everything was so rushing and unhappy. But then, it's a force traveling due to some personal matters, so I decided to treat it as a short break for myself rather than kept suffering from thinking about the adhoc issue. This is the 4th time i've been to Singapore. The previous threes were mainly for dancing purpose, so I couldn't have much time to enjoy as a tourist gal. However, this time, definitely. I book a bus ticket at First coach. By the way,
I really enjoyed so much the service and the quality of it. Bus station was so clean, neat and luxiously located at One world hotel building. What to ask for more??? My round trip ticket costed me RM115 (quite reasonable i think). During the waiting time, they will give you a complimentary drink (coffee), on board, they will give you a mineral water and a small bread. The seat was so comfortable that you almost could lie down. They have small TV installed in each seat....Well, so far so good. I'm sorry for not taking any photos coz i totally forgot that i'm a blogger that time. Lolzzz Arriving to SG around 10pm, it's kinda late and tiring. I quickly look for some foods as my stomach started yelling me. Well, the simplies thing i could think about is fast food (even though i'm not fan of them). I entered KFC restaurant in a shopping mall where the bus stopped and ordered a frequent meal: Snack Plate. And I got this one: "God! They gonna be kidding me" I thought. It's so little. It didn't look like a snack plate in Msia. I was so doubtful that I had to repeat my question again: "Excuse me, is this my order, Snack plate?". "Yes it is. $3.50 in total". Gosh! S$3.50 equals to RM7.++ in Msia and there was just 1 drumstick and chips plus pepsi. I would never tried it again. It's so expensive and i was dissapointed. Look! Fine, i had done with my small dinner, it's time to look for a hotel. I was totally out of mind about where to stay and how to get there. I just remember the name of the hotel that my friend told me, I forgot to search for the add. However, they have so many branches all around that confused me though. So i had to ask the local people. There was amazing lady who worked in the restaurant who helped me to call to the hotel and asked for their address, checked for me how much is the rate and showed me how to get there. She took me to the taxi stand, and even asked me to save her number to call her if i need help. I was just so surprised and touched that i couldn't say anything besides thanking her deeply. And finally, with her help, i managed to find the hotel called Fragrance Rose hotel. Here it is:
The hotel room is just pretty small, you could just put a queen size bed, a make up table and that's it. There was a TV in the room but no wardrobe :(. The pricing for room with single bed and double bed was same, so I took the bigger one :D.
Small make up table with some complimentary coffee and mineral water :D
This is the washroom, it's also a small as the bedroom, lolz. But at least, it's clean like what u see!
Camwhoring when i arrived! :D Pretty tired and hungry, i thought i could sleep right after the hot shower, but it seemed make me to to awake longer. I watched so many movies until 3am and the eyes didn't want to close at all. God! Tomorrow, i gotta wake up around 8am for the early breakfast treated by my friend. So look forward to it as we haven't seen each other for 3 years though. Next morning, my friend Kevin picked me up from the hotel. He treated me a American breakfast to compensate for the night before he couldn't make it to come and see me. Hmmm...How nice! He brought me to TCC- The coffee Connoiseur Posing at the entrance to the restaurant. And this is the main entrance! So quiet, cozy and cool! So yah! Let's order something to eat! I want to show mine! The "Sunny Side Up" breakfast! Super yummy! And here is my coffee drink: the 1st runner up coffee in SG. My bad! I forgot its name :p You can see my coffee looks so much colorful, presentable and attractive. Of course it's yummy too!
This is Kevin's oder. Look not bad huh? He've enjoyed the breakfast so much...I think this is his favourite restaurant :D
And here, the owner of the breakfast :D Good looking? Any gal wants him? Please let me know, he's still single and available, hehehe.... You know the thing i love about this restaurant is not only about the food and the coffee, but also about the luxirious deco they have: See this! TheCrystal light! And this also: The mirror was just killing me, lolz...So beautiful. You know where is it placed? . . . . . . Here you go! The washroom! My Godness! How could i not take any photos with this beautiful and splendid washroom, hor? I bet Kevin must be wondering why I stayed in the washroom for so long, hahahahaa...He thought i was sleeping inside then :D
We then quickly went to a new park after the breakfast. The park called "The Hort park"- 23-hectare regional park in South-Western Singapore with various types of colorful trees, silvery, grayish, whitish, and golden leave plants.
The first man-made flat bridge leads to the park. There are so many types of fishes under. Can you see them swimming? :D The main gate leads to the park! There was 1 thing I can't wait to show you guys. It's this PINK chair at the open air- restaurant. Among all grey chair and brown table under the hot sun, there was this pink chair...Soooooooo lovely! Besides me, that's man-lake? How nice! The wind is blowing, the sun is shining, the chair is pinky and the gal is also pink, lolz....So matching :p Some more posing! My friend told me, this photo looks like i was being hang up on the sky, lolz....What an imagination! Oh yah! There was 1 very interesting thing to see at this park: Living with nature. Basically, they build up a house demo and just want to show u the excellent combination of nature and architexture. Take a look! You might get a good idea if you want to build up or deco your house later in the future. This is the living room! This is the kitchen! I felt so much in love with this kitchen! The real flower deco on the kitchen wall! You can even do it anywhere you want too: corridor, etc.. The dining room! The left side is the dining table actually and the right side is the door open to the small garden. This is the resting area :D Interesting huh? Outside of the park, you could find so many nice place for you to view to relax and enjoy the day. My focus point here is: it's extremely nice for outdoor photo shooting. I couldn't miss it :D Here are the results: Posing with the bamboo: This photos was taken when i was a bit tired actually. But yeah, still! Say chese to the camera!
On the way out to the car park!
It was about 2pm that time. I couldn't stay any longer coz my bus departed at 3pm. So we quickly went off and had lunches at the Secret recipe! That was fantastic too! Thank a lot to my dear Kevin for taking care of me on that day! I definitely will come back SG again for a longer trip! I'm very sure! P/s: Bonus! My most favorite photos at the green house!
