Eating and shopping, or shopping and eating are pretty much musts in Singapore. And this is pretty much how I spent my time on Sunday.
I woke refreshed around 9. Edwin, Edwin’s sister, Wai Yee, Richard and I went out to Toa Payoh for a Tim Sam breakfast which included porridge, dumplins, pork, banana, bacon and other random foods which were slightly confusing to my admitedly westernised tastes. But over all I did enjoy it.
It was then on to Sing Lim Square for a spot of shopping. I bout CDR media and a USB thumb drive for pretty competitive prices.
We grabbed a coffee at Berger King (blush) and then wondered through the “Kuan Yin birthday celebration” crouds before catching the Rapid Transit System (train) out of town. Before heading home for a quick shower we visited “Mr Bean” which is an amazing little shop which sells some of the best little pancakes I have ever tasted.
This evening we met with more friends of friends and had dinner at the YMCA of all places.
We rounded the day off at the famous long bar at Raffles where I was treated to a Singapore Sling. (Audio to follow).
