7/1 Singapore

Posted: July 2, 2008 in Food and drink, Singapore, Travel

This was my first time in Singapore…

After over a year of flying around, I finally got a chance to fly to Singapore.
The hotel, is.. umm.. Something Roxy Something… Who cares..
Rooms are big, and it’s a smoking room.. yippie~
Anyway, I let pictures do the talking… with side notes of course…

P1010339 P1010342
My room, it’s pretty big, and the outside of the hotel.

I arrived at 4 AM, and so I slept till… 2 PM… So the first thing on the list is.. to EAT!
So Vivian took me to this place… I can’t remember the name of the place… which suppose to have great chicken rice~
P1010351P1010344
This is the shop, just Chicken Rice

P1010343P1010346
This is the sauce… and our coconut…

P1010347 P1010352
Our free soup, it has bitter melon and chicken feet and chicken and pork I think…

P1010350 P1010348
This is the chicken, it’s quite yummy, and the pickled veggies have pineapples in it~

P1010353
This is the building where the shop is located at…

P1010354 P1010355
Now it’s just random shots of the streets…  actually… just Orchard Street…

P1010356 P1010361
It has like a million shops on the street, and I guess if you love shopping…
However, I hear it’s more expensive than HK… so…

P1010362 P1010365
Then we went to the Swissotel Stamford, it’s near… umm… No idea… and we went up to this place…
it’s on the 70th floor, so it’s got a great view of Singapore.

P1010367 P1010369
Streets of Singapore.. I hav to say.. it’s prettier than night view of Taipei…
I’m not sure if you can see it, but if you click on the pic on the right…
You’ll see a street that’s lit up with white lights instead of yellow lights…
That’ll be your racetrack for the first ever Formula One race held at night!

P1010372 P1010374 P1010375
This cocktail is called the Merlion… and of course, Tiger beer~

P1010376 P1010378
More night shots of the city~

P1010383 P1010384
Then we went to check out the Merlion… only to find out that.. it’s under construction….

P1010389 P1010391
You can see the world’s largest Ferris Wheel…

P1010392 P1010395
Merlion from another angle…

P1010399 P1010404
There’s this smaller one and made with porcelain, actually, it’s covered in broken porcelain…
The building is called… Umm… crap.. can’t remember…
Oh yeah, the Fullerton Hotel.. hahaa.. Looks grand…

P1010424 P1010406
Then it’s dinner time… We went to the Maxwell Food Centre…
The locals call these kind of places Hawker Centre… Not sure why…
And the public toilets costs 10 Cents to get it…

P1010408 P1010409
It’s just like any other food court… It was already 9 I think… so many shops closed…

P1010410 P1010423
This was some kind of a clam thing… On the Sign it says Cockle…
it was just water boiled and it was not bad and all that for only 3 bucks!

P1010412 P1010416
And of course, the Meat Bone Soup, but I thought… wasn’t it suppose to be dark?
We didn’t order Popiah, cuz it’s just like the Taiwanese veggie wraps you see in night markets…

P1010414 P1010415
This is Rojak, it’s.. a weird looking and weird tasting thing… Very interesting actually…
It’s got umm… Pineapple, Cucumber, Green Mango, Radish/Pear?, and some kind of fried dough…
All mixed in with a sweet soy sauce, crushed peanuts and a bit spicy thing in it… not sure what gives it’s spiciness…
And of course, a bowl of water for you to drink… I mean, wash your hands after you open up the clams…

P1010418P1010421
Last but not least, Laksa, tastes like… Laksa….
And Carrot Cake with eggs, not bad eating~

Anyway, so that concludes my one day.. well, half day trip in Singapore~
Thanks to Vivian to show me places, and Tommy for the drinks!
I will definitely go back sometimes, because…

I DIDN’T GET TO EAT MY CHILI CRABS LAH!!!!!!!
