Aug 24:Day 1 - meet our firsts



  • Tot's 1st airplane ride, Tot's and Bateng's 1st out-of-the-country trip, everyone's 1st visit to Singapore...
  • 1st love -PASIR RIS! uniform condominiums rising, unjammed streets, very clean surrounding, accessible... what more can you ask??.. childrens' laughter perhaps...
  • 1st eyeball with Oliver, our host, who was so accomodating! since he's still at work, he trusted us his keys and gave us permission to use the facilities inside his condo... 'baet'
  • satisfied with our 1st taste of local food bought in a 'turo-turo'.. by observing the customer ahead of us, we learned to just point on whichever viand we want and paid the food at a very reasonable price. later we learned that such resto is called hawker...
  • our 1st task was to secure train tickets to Kuala Lumpur.. thanks to momi bhing for lending me her map, whew it took us almost 30minutes in finding the railway station! that's twice the actual minutes walking from the nearest train station...
  • 1st realization - taxi is impractical! mrt and bus stations are strategically situated although walking is inevitable...
  • after having that long walk in Raffles place (with picture taking of course), we had our 1st frustation - we cannot locate the Merlion's place!! 'tulong! may pinoy ba dyan?' :-D
  • still walking, not being sure if we are on the right track to the Fountain of Wealth, we met our 1st angel - a sweet HRM trainee pinay who is also on her way to the fountain.. thank u Lord!.. we finally reached the fountain and enjoyed the cool ambience while watching the laser show which concluded our 1st day in singapore :)
