Duck Tour & River Cruise!

Finally a meet-up with PPGs and we had late lunch over at Toby’s Estate as our Sundate! Thanks to Yinning’s 1-for-1 app again, we get to explore more exotic cafes and food places…hehe!

Confit chicken burger?

My very mainstream choice – Eggs Ben!

To be honest, there isn’t a wide variety of food choices in the menu, so we had a hard time choosing. Yinning likes the food, but the rest of us think it’s okay only~ Nevertheless, great catch up session for me to clear my second last batch of Aussie goodies! Haha!

💖💖💖💖

Off for the next outing and it’s gonna be a tourist day again! So get ready for the photo spams! Especially with my new camera now 😛

Starting off with a sinful indulgence first! More sinful for the wallet actually…hahaha! But it’s so niceeeeee~!

Off we go!

Probably the only Singaporeans on board 😂

Even though most passengers on board were tourists, I think this is also an opportunity for the locals to see our beautiful city from angles that you usually can’t see on the land~

Chio shot while on the water! Good weather for photos (:

This bridge always reminds me of Chingay because that will always be the “meeting point” since it’s the easiest landmark to spot 😅
 photo IMG_1125_zps2qmpvfnd.jpg

More chio shots with the blue sky! Okay lah not so chio because the duck was moving quite fast, so there’s no time for proper composition. Once you miss it means miss it~

You know, I’ve been asked several times what is this bowl-like thing and today, I finally got to know that it’s a museum! It’s the ArtScience Museum! I actually overheard it later on at the River Cruise – one of the local uncle telling the China lady…hahaha! Sua gu much!

I think this shot is not bad! Quite chio right? For a last-minute composition 😛

And more MBS shots! Really act like tourist 😆 But when can I stop taking photos of just the exterior and get to stay inside as well~

A very 勉强 shot of the Merlion because we were sitting on the wrong side, so only managed to take this shot when the boat made a U-turn 😐

The cloudy blue sky before the sunset!

We took the ride at the right timing because it happened to be the sunset timing! But did not manage to take a nice shot of the sunset though~

Favourite (:

Travelled down to Clarke Quay for the next ride – River Cruise! Gotta make full use of the pass since the girl failed to use it so many times already 😅

Third time cruising! 😄

Night shots are still quite a challenge for this camera~ Sometimes I miss the beauty spots while trying hard to focus or get a clear shot 🙁

I never notice this mini Changi airport thing here before! You see~ Sometimes you need to be on the water to see it 😆

Our pretty night scene and skyscrapers!

When we passed by the Elgin bridge earlier on, Lyn was asking about when it will have the rainbow lighting. So on our way back after the boat made a U-turn, I saw that the bridge has lit up and I exclaimed, “Lyn! Your rainbow! Your rainbow!!!” 😅 Cause I know once you miss a shot of it, that’s it~ Hahaha!

Riding back to shore~

Back to being a gian-peng-gian-sai Singaporean, by enjoying the 1-for-1 dessert at Harry’s! 😂
 photo 20161009_221343_zps4z0bap7f.jpg

I love how they incorporate alcohol in most of their desserts too! Like this Baileys sundae shot 😋
 photo 20161009_221003_zpssjlafhqo.jpg

And the best best best lava cake I have ever eaten! Because there’s alcohol in it and it blends so damn well with the molten chocolate! YUMS!!! Too bad it’s pretty expensive if without the 1-for-1, if not this gonna make my day like anytime! 😍

This is why I love to travel, though I still feel broke after leh…HAHAHA.

Caught Middle School after seeing the trailer for 37194719 times~ I thought it would be good since they had been doing so much publicity for it, giving out notepads and screening the trailer for so many months. But it reminds me so much of Aloysius Pang’s Young & Fabulous and I didn’t like it.

I just find it hard to feel the emotional aspect of the movie when you incorporate animation/comic/cartoon/all the virtual stuff in it. Chio computer graphics for enhancement or effects is okay, but not cheesy-looking animation 😐

Was having an intense craving for yam gu kueh after trying the one Min’s mum gave me and ta-duh~!!! I was surprised with a box of rainbow delight!
 photo 20161011_190130_zpsanpoj4k9.jpg

The best part is it’s even nicer than the one I tried the other day; so much filling and so soft! OMG~~~ 流口水 while singing K 😆 The yam ones are enough to satisfy me, though it’s nice trying the coconut one for the first time too! Hehe!

Another food donation from le colleague – Chocolate cheese tart!
Taste much nicer than it looks!!!

Went for Hot Flow class again this week and I forgot to mention that I went back for Hot Stretch the previous week and realised that after going through Hot Flow classes for consecutive few weeks, Hot Stretch class seems like nothing now…hahaha!

Not that it’s easy, but because Hot Flow is way too torturous. I always ask myself why am I here…LOL. Sounds rather SM~ Like you feel good to be tortured, in a way 😳

Went for another workout the very next day because there’s some free class at the Community Centre! My first try on Piloxing – something which I had been wanting to try and now I got a free chance to 😃

It’s indeed a bit like Muay Thai, except that you punch in the air instead of the pads. I’ve always thought it’s not so shiok to punch in the air (and it looks retarded), but it’s actually not that bad. Definitely not as shiok as striking on pads, but it’s still sibei tiring!

The first 20 minutes I was already looking at the clock, counting down to the end of the 1 hour…LOL. Cause it’s like aerobics + boxing, so it was non-stop movement, punching and all. But only the start of the session was more intense, and it got better later on. Still quite a shiok workout; sweated quite a bit 🙂
 photo 20161013_210356_zps8f5tyahn.jpg

Oh the only thing that I dislike is that it’s being held in the hall, so everyone outside or walking past can watch you punch like a retard or trying hard to find your coordination between your hands and legs (which happened to me so many times)! 😑

And there was a part that we gotta find a partner. But since I was there as a lone ranger and I really dislike talking to strangers (if I have a choice), I decided to play it the cool way. I walked away to drink water till everyone had found a partner then I walked over to this other lone ranger as though she had already agreed to partner with me. HAHAHA. Doesn’t seem like you’ve got much choice left anyway 😼

Satisfying my intense craving for jalapeño cheese because it’s TGIF and it’s time to celebrate the end of a lousy week! Even dressed up for the day because I just felt really lousy this week, or maybe these 2 weeks… Received the most compliments in a day and also the best one ever 😊
