Rantings, Goss’ps, Complaints, Compliments….

This is the place to be if you have a weird obsession just like mine – Bert from Sesame Street, likes everything Japanese & TVB movie serials, love to travel, eat and not forgetting – bitch!

My weekend in Singapore April 6, 2008

Filed under: Travel — siaoyue @ 7:17 pm

I was estatic on Friday. Fridays could only mean one thing.  Weekend is near!

I went to Timbre but could not take any pictures becuase the camera ran out of batteries and I stupidly forgot the charge them.  Well, partially to blame was ‘shaun not alcoholic’ who did not even give me to chance to get my things sorted in his house before we left for dinner/ drinks (and who now also labels me as a cam-whore). Hence..only got this night mode shot before the camera went totally dead

Night View

Saturday morning saw me going to the Guan Yin Temple near Bugis.  Bert wanted to go too, but I thought it was not such a good idea for him to be seen in public, especially in a temple.  So he prayed from home..


Ok Ok lame joke.  But here’s what I found in one of the stalls on the way to the temple.

I went prawning with my friends in Bishan in the middle of the night and did not finish until about 3.30am.  I caught 4 prawns in 3 hours.  What an achievement! Ah ha – but I did catch the biggest prawn.  But the two of us girls basically fished for the prawns and got the guy to ‘un hook’ the prawns.

Above – my very own catch of the night!


That was my Saturday.

Before leaving for the airport today, I manage to try the famous Katong Laksa that you only need to eat with a spoon!  Tastes very different from our curry laksa but has the similiar ingredients – cockels, fish paste and it’s rich in coconut milk.  Not very healthy but very, very enjoyable!

That was my Singapore weekend – and NO i hardly did any shopping in case you’re wondering!!!
