1st stop: Hatched
Went for brunch at this cafe in Holland V and I ordered smoked salmon eggs benedict (smoked salmon ftw you know, it's the love of my life).
Sliced my poached egg and delighted to know that it's done pretty okay, at least the yolk was runny HAHA. Unfortunately not in Petra and Jy's case LOL, their poached eggs were kinda hard. I actually thought that the blob of thing was tuna with mashed potatoes and it ended up being minced mushrooms with extremely small cubes of potatoes? Really interesting and it tasted gr8.
2nd stop: D good Cafe
Dessert at D good cafe just a few shops away! There was this cool window with some flowers there...
Jy and her iced chocolate.
Petra and her waffles.
3rd stop: Maple Tree Bizcity
Please do not ask me why I chose to go there (and they just follow LOL), but I really like the layout of the place because it looks like a legit city imo.
We were so ahead of schedule and we ended up reaching there at like... late 1pm-2pm? IT WAS TERRIBLE. The sun was BLAZING and it was so damn freaking hot!!!!! Plus the whole area was actually really big and there are like so little shelters / shades. Oh my gosh my sweat was just dripping and flowing all over myself I'm so disgusted and just wanted to get my ass off that place already. But since we're already there so... Might as well explore the place a bit.
Ok it wasn't really exploring but we just decided to seek refuge in the office buildings, away from the terribly hot sun.
The bottle cool nia.
4th stop: Clarke Quay
We didn't really go to the sg river side but instead we walked to Old Hill Street Police Station (current MCI), Fort Canning Park and Old Fire Station. This time it wasn't so hot already but the air was still really humid you could still feel the heat.
Old Hill Street Police Station!
Camo and green ok.
They 2 be fooling around.
Jy and her leg tho.
And my face is just epic here!!
Old Fire Station
5th stop: Old Supreme Court & Old City Hall
Honestly the whole raffles/city hall area is filled with tons of extremely old and cool iconic buildings!!! This is the old city hall, undergoing renovation. Actually I like it that they are putting in effort to preserve + restore this place but the original old colour and structure is already fabulous (i like it more LOL)...
Heard that these 2 buildings are going to be converted to the new National Art Gallery by 2015? I AM SO DAMN LOOKING FORWARD TO HOW IT LOOKS LIKE. Honestly these 2 buildings are one of my most favourites they give the olden feel and I just really want to explore the insides!!! Arghhhhhhh!!!!!!!
6th stop: Victoria Memorial Hall
HAHAHA Jingyan badly wanted to go to Victoria Concert Hall (why ah) and we just randomly arrived there while walking to who knows where.
Another one! I really like this building too!!!!! ermagod
The whole building was so pretty and there was a couple having a wedding photoshoot!! (admiring them for bearing with the terrible heat)
7th stop: Cavenagh Bridge
It's the only suspension bridge and one of the oldest suspension bridges in Singapore!!
The view of Fullerton Hotel from the bridge. The extremely luxurious hotel.
8th stop: Marina Bay Floating Platform
I was really determined to get a really nice photo while at the seats of the floating platform.
Yeap, we found the right location! ^_^
9th stop (last): MBS
Since we were just nearby, we decided to explore the hotel area. Actually just trying to imitate Wayne's picture. Figuring out where he took it from was terrible cuz we had to keep looking up.
Overall, it's an extremely fun day!! I've finally been to places I have never been to in Singapore!! Even though I didn't appear in much photos, it's okay cuz I enjoyed taking the photos!!!
For the first time in forever I diligently adjusted all my settings (when i had to) HAHA. I actually shot in Aperture, Manual, and my own custom mode for the first time!! What an achievement, usually I'll be so lazy and I'll just stick to Auto mode. Well.
