Malaysian Food Blog, Travel, Diving & More

I went to Singapore for a couple days, my first time there in the last 13 years. A short trip for an interesting event, a competition organized by Brand’s that we eventually came up first… running up (which involved only two teams.)

Details of the trip shall come soon, but first, I want to also make you envy by showing you this little toy David sent me a day prior to the Singapore trip for review. A Nokia XpressMusic 5800!

The phone actually exceed my expectations, very polished touch enabled user interface. Still a few bugs to iron out prior to the full release I bet. Full review on this blog soon, stay tuned.

Singapore MRT is a lot busier than I remember, and commuters don’t seem to line up nor actually let passengers get down first prior to barging into the train. I thought that was a little surprising.

The Malaysian team did not win (sorry folks!), but Red Diva, KK, Suanie, Sultan Muzaffar, and I did try our best. It was a pretty close call. More on the event on this blog soon.

Suan brought me to Brewerks, a microbrewery along the Singapore river. Good beer, good company, but my alcohol tolerance is still tragically low.

this reminds me of the Rainbow bridge in Tokyo

The scenery at Clark Quay at night is very nice. The photo above is what you can see from Brewerks. Strangely there are quite a few people jogging along the riverside at 9pm, and they’re almost all whites. We’re still deciding if they were exercising or showing off.

The river cruise looks like something I might want to try in my future visit, Sheryl and I had a pretty good riverboat tour back when we were in Chicago a number of years ago when we were both very much together in the States.

  14. Yeah , we dun line up , we’re a bunch of kanchiong spiders.

    Now with the influx of chinese nationals….
    its your fault you cant get in the train anymore :(:(:(

  15. Hey KY,

    It was nice knowing you at the challenge. It was great fun!

    And your observation about our trains are spot on. I am very annoyed by my fellow Singaporeans who just rush into trains and not let people come out first. Terrible behavior. And of course, the trains are super crowded these days. The government is allowing so much immigration that maybe Singapore might sink soon. 😀

    Anyway, if you’re thinking of coming back, feel free to drop me a note. Maybe I can host you at my place or something. 🙂

  16. The chicken essence PoR not enough eh.. =P

  17. harmony,
    Hahah, oh well. Fast pace life heh.

    Aaron,
    The feeling is mutual. 😀

  21. Very nice pictures taken of the night view of the Singapore River!

  22. Wilfrid,
