As we began to finish our vacation, we thought that we should see some sites in Singapore (especially the famous Tian Tian chicken rice stand that Anthony Bourdain went to). The clock was ticking! We hopped on the metro and headed to Chinatown. Let me tell you, it was hot and humid and I don't do hot and humid. By the end of the day I was cranky and wanted to shower and have a complimentary beer in the hotel room.
|Mmmm dangling chicken. That'll pique your appetite.|
|These were like hot pockets stuffed with eggs and oysters. They|
were pretty yummy, but quite greasy.
|I got Nick a coconut water since they're supposed to have|
natural electrolytes and he wasn't feeling well the night before.
|Nothing like a giant plate offal for breakfast.|
|Oyster omelet with fried fish cakes.|
|Melissa got curry-filled pockets.|
|Yup, there are snakes and centipedes in these jars. I hope they|
were just for show.
|Now this is my kind of refrigerator.|
|This is what the pods look like up close. You can actually reserve|
a pod to have dinner in.
|In the pod. Mr. Fong doesn't like heights either so he stayed|
on the ground and watched the tug-of-war competition.
|I love how all of the architecture is very modern. Even the|
older looking buildings look pretty modern to me.
|Starting line of the F1 track.|
|The Marina Sands|
Connected to the Singapore Flyer was a little food court and mall. Nick and Dennis had seen go karts on the F1 track while we were high up in the pod and had gone to look to see if they could go kart. The rest of us sat in the food court and ate.
|Coy pond by the food court where you could buy fish food|
for a dollar.
|Shaved ice. It comes with strange jelly stuff in the middle.|
|Old-school way of making boiled eggs. There|
is boiling water in that cup with two eggs.
|The eggs came out rather raw, but Mr. Fong seemed to enjoy|
it anyway with some white pepper and soy sauce.
|I stopped in a 7-11 while wandering around and|
found this vending machine. A mashed potato
dispenser? Do people really eat mashed potatoes
out of that thing?
|So true because I always have to go to the|
|On our way back to the hotel we had to cross a major street to|
get to the metro station. We were literally on the F1 track and
were all trying to get our cameras out quickly in the middle of
the cross walk.
Once we got back to the hotel, I promptly took a shower and then headed to Melissa and Dennis' room with Nick where I was able to have ice cold complimentary beer and relax in my non-sticky skin. For ease, we went back to the food court that we went to on our first morning in Singapore.
|Interesting art in the food court.|
|Naan to go with Nick's curry.|
|Dennis' curry laksa.|
|You'd think by now that I'd be tired of soup noodles and|
dumplings, but these were DELICIOUS.
|More chili crab!|
|These buns weren't as good as the ones from the place in KL,|
but they were definitely tasty.
|Dennis bought himself a chili crab.|
|All of the shoes acquired from the trip.|
|Nick picked out these cute ones for one of my coworkers.|
I would have gotten some too but they didn't have my size.
