18 Jun 2014 – On the Wall
Mon: day 3 of tourist guiding. Sue & Niall are in SIN from the UK for Les’s conferring of Doctor of Medicine. Appreciate Gel & Dave for the invites to Phuket/Thailand and Mandalay/Myanmar and apologies for not being able to be there. Another time.
Proud of my bro. Feeling honoured and looking forward to attending the ceremony on Thu.
It’s been a while since I have left the apt before 1000hrs and back at midnight! Good to know that the energy is still there when needed 🙂
A drive thru’ Little India’ and Geylang, the red light district before going on foot at the Arab Street area. Forgot that museums are closed on Mon, thus did not get into the Malaya Heritage Centre. Authentic Nasi Ambeng at Mamanda****which has a 200yrs old mirror on the 2nd level function rooms. A selfie with the mirror hoping that it can reflect some tales from the past 2 centuries – no such luck 🙂 🙂
Had to take a break before more tourist guiding for a young Norwegian student in the evening. Chilled at the movies: How To Train Your Dragon 2***when Hiccup and Toothless discover an ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace.
Ingrid’s friend’s son Christian from Norway is in SIN to gain experience for his course at the U. What a small world this is – Christian is a good friend of Magnus who was here in SIN 2yrs ago at SMU with the group I took to the Forest Adventure! Welcome to SIN Christian and hope that your experience here will be a good and memorable one. Introduced him to MeePok at Plaza SIN Kopitiam and a stroll to the Raffles Hotel and City Space Lounge Bar at Swissotel The Stamford.
Tue: this cheerful sight outside of Dhoby Ghaut MRT station made my day. Lunch at basement in Tangs, thanks to Pat T and hope that her cruise to Norway to be a safe and enjoyable journey to you and your friends. Still think that Norway is one of the most beautiful countries to visit and looking forward to be there in Sep.
All’s well that ends well for today and hopefully for everyday. At Mt E and next appointment will be in Aug 🙂 🙂 🙂
