hi hi, miss me? of course you don’t *like who am i lol πŸ˜›

 

well if you do miss me, here i am, updating everything i haven’t written πŸ˜‰

 

more or less a month ago when i wrote tonight, tonight i wasn’t going to visit Hollywood sign, but yes, i went abroad. my friends and i went to Temasek aka Singapore πŸ˜€

 

it was a great experience. i don’t even know how to start telling this trip, kekeke. anyway, i didn’t take too many pictures since all i have is a troubled camera and Nokia which the battery runs out easily hahaha.

 

one thing for sure, their English is hell difficult to understand, isn’t it? i’m not sure that Singlish is supposed to be that hard to listen but the pronunciation for several easy words became so difficult to get. like, when we wanted to buy fruit juice, the seller asked “large or medium?” but for me it’s sounded like “laksa medium?” or something like that. personally, it’s quite confusing .__.

 

oh yeah, i extremely enjoyed MRT! i like tapping the EZ link, seems so sophisticated, hehehe. and the MRT stations are huge, aren’t they? when we landed on Yogyakarta’s airport (Adisucipto International Airport), we implicitly said something like “MRT stations are bigger than this airport…right?” kekeke. surely Adisucipto is nothing compared to Changi. Changi is GINORMOUS. we had to walk all way round just to get immigration done. phew.

just arrived at Changi hahhaha, girls :))

i forgot which MRT station i took this, i think Buona Vista? however the decor is great :D

anyway, i don’t know how many malls they have in Singapore. it’s like everytime we got off MRT, it’s directly a mall. just along Orchard road, how many malls are there??? and the malls are uniquely built not only upward but also downward – if i’m not mistaken. weirdly, from lot of malls we entered, i couldn’t find any CD stores ._. however, we did entered Kinokuniya on Orchard and i was PSYCHED. it’s not book store, it’s the promised land hahaha. i found Darren Shan’s books but i couldn’t buy all of them πŸ˜₯ kinda sad.

sign if Orchard Road :p

well, for trip which was tight budget, we really had tight schedule, although some of the plans must be cancelled due to inability to bear exhaustion kekeke. like for the first day, we went to Botanic Gardens really early in the morning – we basically left the hostel at 6 a.m. every morning. we planned to go to Bugis, Singapore Science Center, Orchard road then back to Science center to do stargazing. the reality, we cancelled Science center. we were caught up in Orchard road hahaha, besides it was raining so we thought it wouldn’t work too if we pushed to stargaze.

Reina and I posed weirdly at Bugis :D

second day was Sentosa Island day. or, should i say, Universal Studio day hahaha. seriously, we perhaps need at least 2 days to discover the island. anyway, USS was aweesooomeee. ah, i can’t put the awesomeness into words. it just was πŸ™‚ and after visiting USS, i got crazy in the Hershey’s! it’s like another promised land, filled with chocolates. last destination was watching Songs of the Sea performance πŸ™‚ really kewl. the laser, the water, the lights and the fire. too bad it’s too soon to end. i wish it was a tad longer.

Battlestar Galactica jet coaster, AWESOME!!!

the last day was basically window shopping through Little India, Chinatown and Queenstown. well, i stand corrected, not only window shopping but also enjoying last day in this country. after Queenstown, we went to Marina Bay Sands, then walked to the famous Merlion statue. since i was told that Merlion was best enjoyed at night, we sat around the statue, waiting the sky to get darker. after that, the very last attraction to go was Singapore Flyer πŸ™‚

yeaah that's just me hahaha

yeaah that’s just me hahaha

wasn't too dark but some of the lights were already on :)

we had a bit mixed up when we were going to the Flyer. ah, however we made it. it is a gigantic flyer and takes about 30 minutes to finish a round. up there, not only we could see Singapore at night, but i also could recognize Singapore F1 circuit!!!! i noticed the exit of the pit stop and i was kinda freaked >v< really felt like we were at the top of the world πŸ™‚

Singapore at night, at the top of the world :)

can you see the exit of the pit stop?? :D

oh my God, somehow i still can’t believe that we made it all the way there and back here to the bitter reality. sometimes when i ride my motorcycle on Yogyakarta’s chaotic roads, i wonder that i barely saw any motorcycles in Singapore. well, yeah for sure because Singapore’s public transportation is that convenient, even for tourists like us. and amazingly, Singaporean drivers always give chance for pedestrians to walk across the road. here in Indonesia, zebra cross seems useless. we rarely use it, and once we use it, nobody gives damn way.

 

well, i guess this is the part where i have to wrap this up. Singapore was awesome, i hope to go there again and visit other attractions like Jurong Bird Park, Science Center – they have Snow World, you know, Gardens by the Bay and else.

 

thanks to my wonderful friends – reina, gita, luky – for this unforgettable trip, let’s plan another, to Seoul perhaps? :p
