22 april 2012 – soo san and a group of us went hiking at hortpark, the south-western part of singapore.

we met up near harbourfront (NE1) MRT station and went for a quick bite at harbourfront bus interchange. soon after, we started hiking using a trail nearby.

the old road winding road leading up to genting highland. i can hardly remember the first time that i was here. probably a little more than a decade ago! it was with a friend, angela liew. at that time, we took a lot of rides. this time round, i think i spent my time eating, catching a midnight movie, and… that’s it. oh, i went to have a look at the casino.

a bar that looks like a hospital. and no, we did not get a ‘consult’.

before long, we got bored and decided to go…

GEYLANG! for those of us who do not know, geylang is a notorious place where the oldest profession in the world plies their trade.

Soo San brought me to Geylang Lorong 9, where the famous beef kway teow is. Tender juicy beef and smooth kway teow, fried in flavorful sauce.

we ended up near Singapore Indoor Stadium, sitting on the floor, with a can of beer each, chatting the night away. that, ladies and gentlemen, was my first and only beer thus far in Singapore.

may 2011 – dinner treat by a diving buddy, bee huat. he suggested Mad For Garlic at Suntec City.

20110716-085940.jpg

it was pretty empty on a weekday but great ambience. friendly waitresses too.

20111229-233139.jpg

i had pasta with garlic (what else?). i love garlic so this is a perfect dish for me.

20110716-090353.jpg

bee huat ordered the pizza to share, saying i look like someone who can really eat. i think he secretly ordered this more for himself.

great dining place for a quiet evening to catch up.

29th december 2010 – it is already february of 2011 and i am STILL putting up pictures from previous year. that is how lazy motivationally challenged i am when it comes to photo blogging.

margaret k and i planned for a day at the beach of shangri-la’s rasa ria resort, just chilling and reading. however, within 30 minutes, it started to drizzle. so, that was the end of our chill day.

 

oh well, life. unpredictable.
