A day had passed from our Pulau Ubin Trip and we had planned to meet up again to go for a movie date on Sunday (7 July 2013) at The Cathay for Despicable Me 2 as we had 2 x free tickets from my sister to watch it.
Reached The Cathay very early to redeem our free tickets and select a good seats before going for our lunch. We eaten our lunch at Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen located at the basement of The Cathay (Too common so never took any photos of it). The time was just right for us to have our lunch first before going for our movie date together.
This was a great and funny show which was both suitable from young kids to adults with their cute minions. I loves the last part where they sang those pop songs.
Some photo taking while waiting for train.
After enjoying our movies, it was about 4plus in the afternoon. We decided to go over to city hall for some windows shopping as Plaza Singapura Shopping mall was full of crowds during the weekends. Over at City Hall, we walked around Raffles City Shopping Mall till it was time for us to eat our dinner.
It was a great weather on Saturday (6 July 2013) and both Rachel and I planned to go for a photo shooting trip as she wish to train up her photo taking skill for our holiday during the October time. Early in the morning, we took public transport to Changi Village where there was Changi Point Ferry Terminal within walking distance which will be able to take us to Pulau Ubin.
Before we board the bus from Tanah Merah MRT Station to Changi Bus Terminal (Changi Village), we bought 2 x mineral water at the 7-11 store within the station thinking that the drinks over at Pulau Ubin sure will be more expensive than inland and went happily to board our bus.
Bus stop at Changi Village Food Centre
After reaching the place, we decided to have our brunch over at Changi Village first before proceeding to take the ferry. Over at Changi Village Food Centre, I hear that there was a very popular Nasi Lemak Stall which sell very nice dish but when I saw the queue, I decided to try other stall instead as it do not seems to be worth the time to queue so long for a Nasi Lemak.
The popular Nasi Lemak but the queue was too long
Another stall (International Muslim Food Stall) selling Nasi Lemak but shorter queue so I decided to buy from this stall instead
I was lucky enough to be able to loan my sister’s car on Saturday (29 June 2013) so had arrange to meet up with the guys (Michael and Mingyan) for a day of photo shooting time together. Our first stop was to go Labrador Park as it was known as a place for taking nice photos.
There were quite a few families over there relaxing while having fun with their children and for us, we just walk and took some photos here and there.
An Abandoned Machine Gun Post from World War II
As per our history, Singapore leaders pointed most of the attack resources at the sea while the enemy attacked us from the back. So in this case, this gun post did not really served its purpose during the world war II period to protect Singapore.
Saturday (1 June 2013) was a special day as both Rachel and me needs to go Marina Square Shopping Mall to look at one of our event results. Both of us were very excited to see the result of our pass week (or Months) of effort. Rachel’s sisters (Laurel and Hazel) will be meeting us later on to give suggestion and etc too.
Angry Birds Hall of Fame
Did a short windows shopping while over at Marina Square too and there was an event of Angry Bird merchandize over there. Those who spend a minium amount of things at Marina Square will also be entitled to some games here too as you can see a lot of people especially kids were having fun over at this event.
It was a very bad day for me as my trust worthy Samsung monitor died on me when I need it for some research over the Internet. This 19″ inch monitor had been showing me the wonders of the Internet cum movies for a few years and it suddenly died on me on 28 May 2013.
My 19″ Samsung LCD Montior ~~Good Bye~~
Without much choice, I went over to Sim Lim Square to find and get a new monitor for my system on the very next day after work. Had been doing some research over the net in office on what monitor I should get and was thinking of a 27″ inch one as the current standard one out there in the market are selling at minimum 24″ inch nowadays. Ofcourse as a loyal fans of Samsung, I decided to purchase Samsung brand monitor again and had thought what model to get.
As mentioned in my earlier blog post, after having our breakfast at ToastBox, we proceed to walk over to Sentosa as there are too many people queuing up to enter Sentosa via the Train.
This is just one part of the super long snake shape queue
Actually, the distance between VivoCity and Sentosa through the boardwalk is not very far and you can get to enjoy the scenery of the place where halfway through, you can find 2 cafe over at this place (One of them was Queen which we used to come and will still be for small gathering and chat).
I came across a quiz in traditional Chinese in Facebook (Shared from my friends) which seems to be very interesting on knowing what type of a person you are. The only problem is that these are in traditional Chinese characters and might not be easy to read up even for me.
So here goes:
