It was pass 4pm when we decided to explore a bit of Singapore. We decided to go to Orchard Rd. From our hotel we walked for a few minutes to get to the MRT central station. We pass through this bridge and I noticed how clean singapore is.
When I looked at the other side, this is what I saw…
That building with colorful windows is the MITA Building, used to be the Old Hill Street Police Station and Barracks – one of Singapore’s largest buildings in the 1930s.
We headed to Central/Clarke Quay station.
To get to orchard road from Clarke Quay, hop on to platform No. 7 (Punggol) and alight Dhoby Ghaut interchange then head to North-South Line follow the alignment of Orchard Rd.
In less than 20 minutes, we were at Orchard Road. I love this place. Daming shoppingan…reminds me of Melbourne.
My feet was really tired already that I asked my sister, for us to have dinner. My sister, Juvy brought us to Lucky Plaza Mall.
I saw lots of pinoy eating here. No wonder, maraming choices for Filipino dishes. Anyway, we didn’t get pinoy dishes syempre, we were there to explore sg. Husband got a serving of piping hot laksa, it’s was really good. I had a serving of stir fry noodles with beef. Will post a different entry on Sg food.
Moving on, after the yummy dinner, We also did a bit of a chocolate shopping for my friends and family at Choc Spot, still in Lucky Plaza, which you can get quite a deal for any kind of chocolates. We also had some fun tasting their sample chocolates. I spent 50 dollars for 2 boxes of almond chocolates, few pieces of toblerone and chocolate pralines. Ang mura di ba?
Ang daming choclates
Then time na for photo opps…
Fashion Statue Display at the Ion Shopping Complex
Syempre we have to pose….hahaha

I just love how Singapore plays with their light design.
If you love shopping for branded stuff…Orchard is the place. As much as I wanted to shop, we’ve been in Singapore for a few hours pa lang. I have few more days to spend my saved moolah . So no to shopping muna.
Pose pose na lang muna!
That is my sister posing naman for DG hahaha
Syempre dapat si hubz my solo pic din
We didn’t went inside the mall. Aside from being tired, it’s pass pass 9pm na. My sister has to go home to meet her husband for dinner. But before we head to the nearest station, we took a photo of this statue.
SingTel Flame of Support.
This Statue garner moral support for Team Singapore in the upcoming 2012 London Olympic Games. One can express their support of Team Singapore by pressing the button that lights up a portion of the sculpture. They aim to garner 200, 000 supports by the opening of Ceremony of the Games on July 12. If there are 200,000 presses of the button, the entire Flame will become fully lit.
That day they have around 66,000+
Hubz and I alighted Clake Quay station, my sister stays in Sengkang, that is a few stops away from us. Buti nal ang, I picked a hotel along the purple line, Sengkang station kasi is along purple line din.
So before heading to the hotel, we had a quick look at the basement of Central Mall. Too bad stall are about to close. We are lucky Gong Cha is still open.
This is my favorite when I order in GC, Gong Cha Milk Earl Grey Tea. Kakarelax. The prices of Gong Cha milk teas by the way are the same as what we have here.
That’s about it. This is how we spend first 9hrs in Singapore.
More on our Singapore trip up next….
