There are flights that you have to request, or you’ll never see them on your schedule…
有些班不申請還真是飛不到…

Being a freighter pilot, I deliver goods all over the world. This time, I requested to go to Singapore to deliver this water filter, so that Vivian and Frank won’t go bald…

This was my first meal in Singapore, Laksa with lemon juice. It’s actually not lemon, it’s kumquat, all citrus… The laksa was pretty good, has cockles in it along with squid and.. something else I can’t remember.. haha~ I like it better than the ones in Penang.
中餐吃的是叻沙加檸檬汁. 說是說檸檬汁, 其實它是金桔汁. 叻沙裡面有血蛤, 花枝… 其他的忘了…. 好吃~ 我比較喜歡吃這裡的叻沙… 檳城的… 我不喜歡…

Then we went to the zoo. Yes, the zoo… It’s like 31 degrees and forecasted to have thunderstorm in the afternoon. But we went anyway. It’s actually very interesting, because instead of cages, they use deep drops, moats, so it looked as if there are no barriers between the visitors and the animals~
下午我們去了動物園. 31度的高溫, 溼度應該有80%以上, 然後還下了一個多小時的雷雨… 不過, 這個動物園跟其他的不一樣的是, 他們的動物都不是關在籠子裏面的~ 他們都是用深坑, 或者小河, 把動物跟人隔離, 但是看起來很像你就走在他們旁邊咧~

After walking around in the zoo, we rested for about an hour… actually we stood around for an hour, to wait for the Night Safari to open. We first walked around the trails and paths, then took the tram around the park. I dozed off on the tram… The Night Safari is also set up the same way as the zoo, obviously, they have more noctornal animals, and the paths are narrower, trees everywhere, a few lamps here and there but the lights are mostly blocked by the trees, can’t really see the sky, it really felt like you are walking in the jungle, at night.
The fruit bat and flying squirrel were actually caged in, so they don’t fly off, but, you get to walk into the cage… and you see them right next to you! You are not allowed to touch them though, not that I would, because fruit bats, or any bat, are just giant rats with wings!!! Gave me goose bumps seeing them flying around me… good thing they have excellent night vision (I think), so they don’t fly into you…
動物園逛完之後, 我們又繼續去了
夜間動物園. 跟日間的很像, 不過夜行動物比較多, 然後人走的地方更窄, 然後樹更多幾乎看不到天空, 感覺真的就像是在森林裡面走路, 黑漆漆的, 有零零散散的燈, 不過都被樹葉遮住, 但是可以勉強看到路…
大部分的動物跟日間動物園一樣, 是沒有柵欄的, 除了飛鼠還有蝙蝠之外…. 不過… 你可以走進去… 然後你就會看到你旁邊的樹上掛著蝙蝠… 入口的地方有個牌子寫著禁止觸摸… 但是.. 誰要摸他們啊!!! 蝙蝠根本就是有翅膀的超級大老鼠!!! 超噁的~~~ 然後他們還在你的頭上, 前面, 後面, 左邊, 右邊, 飛來飛去!!! 還好他們的眼睛好… 不然他們如果撞到我, 我肯定會挫屎….

After walking around all day, we went to the East Coast, where there are a bunch of seafood restaurants with outdoor seating next to the beach, and had dinner. The egg tofu was good, the stir-fry rice noodles were good, and the chili crab was good~ All good, except next time I’m gonna order pepper crabs, cuz the chili sauce is just messy!!! but it was finger lickin’ good~
走完一整天的路之後, 我們去了東海岸的一個地方吃飯. 那邊有好多家餐廳連在一起, 然後都有戶外的位子. 因為就在海邊, 所以”感覺”沒有那麼熱… 那個玉子豆腐好吃, 那個古法乾炒河粉好吃, 那個辣椒螃蟹, 好吃~ 都好吃, 不過下次我要點胡椒螃蟹, 因為那個辣椒的sauce雖然好吃, 但是會吃的髒兮兮的…

These were taken with my iPhone, crap quality, cuz I left the camera in the car…
This was lunch the next day. We went to Santouka Ramen, at Clarke Quay. I have had this before, in San Diego, and it was very good. However, I don’t think the ones in the states has the pig cheek they have here. It was yummy~~~ Frank and I had the same thing, Viv only had gyoza and fried chicken. All were excellent~
下面的照片是用iPhone照的… 因為我的相機掉在車上…
第二天的中餐是去Clarke Quay那邊吃火頭山拉麵~ 我在美國吃過, 好吃~ 不過美國沒有我這次叫的臉頰肉~ 很嫩很好吃~~~ 煎餃跟炸雞也好吃~

Clarke Quay is a river front shopping/dinning area. There are boat tours and river taxies. There are a bunch of restaurants, bars, lounges along the river, nice place to bar hop. The Clinic C, is a hospital themed bar, you sit in wheelchairs with those operation room light over your head, interesting~ but they only open at nights… so maybe next time~
這個Clarke Quay就是那條河, 然後兩岸都是餐廳, 商店, 酒吧. 腕上比較熱鬧. 河上還有導覽船跟水上計程車. 中間那個Clinic C, 是一家醫院主題的酒吧, 那個燈就很像那個手術房的燈, 然後客人會坐在輪椅上喝酒~ 不過因為他晚上才開, 所以下次吧~

In the distance, the three building connect on the top with what looks like a big freighter, is the new Sands casino and hotel. The platform on top of the building is suppose to be a garden or something… I guess we’ll find out soon, when it opens in June.
遠遠的那三棟大樓, 就是6月要開幕的新賭場. 樓頂上面有個像是貨輪的平台把三棟大樓連接在一起, Frank說好像會是個空中花園. 至於還有什麼, 就等他開了去看看就知道囉~
