Singapore, 30th of December 2010-3th of January 2011

Day 8 - 30th of December 2010

From Marina Bay Sands Hotel, we moved to Concorde Hotel on Orchard Rd --again--. The hotel was so-so, but still OK. 

Concorde Hotel was nearby with Grand Central Hotel :)

In fact, we didn't really do anything on this day except walking through Orchard Rd. So, I have none to tell about our 8th day. 

Day 9 - 31th of December 2010

Last day of 2010 happened to be so normal for me (except a thankful feeling to God that He still gives me chance to live until now). We specially visited Wisma Atria Mal to hunt for Sour Sally Yogurt. Yes, folks, I really love yogurt. I couldn't stand to pass another day without yogurt :(

Mwah to Sally *kisses*, glad to found Sour Sally in SG

Also stopped by at Takashimaya to buy book *drooling*

What y'all did on New Year Eve? I accompanied my Gram inside our hotel room while I was reading at the same time. Whereas rests of my family went out to Hotel Lobby to rock on -- Concorde Hotel held a New Year Party. Sounds weird or not for me to spent New Year in this kind of way? I just love what I did, I was so peacefully quite that time with a book on my lap. Even though I didn't join a gala party, I felt no need such thing. The most important for me about New Year wasn't a party, but only simple matter, a happy and thankful heart. Hence, I content enough to just read a book and said 'Thank God, for this new year'.

I bought this from Kinokuniya, Takashimaya. Suddenly You by Lisa Kleypas, I gave 5 stars!

The party held at main lobby, it was so crowded plus noisy, few people even got drunk

Balloooooooooooons :D my siblings took 3 balloons 

Happy New 2011 Year :D

Day 9 - 1th of January 2011

We moved to Meritus Mandarin Orchard on our 9th day. Meritus Mandarin located close to Takashimaya -- which was good, cause I would be able to often visit Kinokuniya Bookstore. 

On the last days we stayed in SG, I was getting lazy to take pictures ha ha ha

There was a huge window corner inside our room at Meritus Mandarin, I loved to sit there with my book and cup of hot Milo as companion :)

Oh, don't forget that we got guests, Ako A Chen and Ako A Mei -- another relations who live in SG. Ako A Mei also brought her husband and her cutie son, Ryan. Last time I visited SG, I was staying with Ako A Mei at her cozy condominium :)

Horray! Got a present, how everybody know I heart chocolate <3

Day 10 - 2th of January 2011

2th of January happened to be Sunday. Time for church. We went to a church at Hyatt Hotel. It was a Singaporean church and they were using Chinese language. I was so doomed there, my jaw was dropping for one and half hour cause I barely know a thing. Yes folks, I admit truthfully, I can't speak Chinese language -- at least I'm able a bit Hokkian. Merely because I'm Chinese, but that doesn't mean I have enough strength to face Chinese language -- it's crazily hard. Instead, I swerved into Korean language. Yes, I heart Korean language, I'm able to either speak/read/write Korean language.

Better thing, I was alive after that muahaha

I also went to Kinokuniya bookstore to buy some books in the evening with Lu I jie-jie companion. We were there for almost 2 full hours. My Dad gave me SGD 75 to freely choose my favorites inside the bookstore. I spent SGD 68 and rests of the money, I bought a new earphone.

All books that I brought from SG, I finished 3 already x)

Day 11 - 3th of January 2011

Our last day! Time to say good-bye to SG. We got an evening flight, around 5 PM. But we arrived at Changi International Airport earlier. So we just walking around there after finished our GST (Goods and Services Tax for tourist) refund.

Caught up a late breakfast before go to Changi :)

This Korean spoon set I bought for SGD 19 after breakfast

We went to airport with Alphard Taxi and the driver (who also Chinese) asked why I can't speak Chinese? I said, I have no interest at all with Chinese language *paiseh*

Changi International Airport :)

Stopped by at Spinelli Cafe and bought some beverages and cakes :D

Also visited Harrods, just to take a pic with Uncle Bear xD

Our airplane was Batavia Air, the same airline like when we first came

We reached Jakarta at 6 PM (based on Indonesian time). Bye-bye SG, bye-bye vacation, welcome back my daily life! :)
