This is the seventh post about my solo trip to Singapore, please read the previous one before you continue.
It was my second day in Singapore and I was wondering if last night, my legs had given up on me or I had given up on my legs regardless I decided not to walk around much. I inquired about the transit, it turns out there is a $30 Tourist Pass which gives you unlimited access to bus and MRT for 3 days.
I was anxious to go out but I couldn’t, as it was raining like cats and dogs. After waiting for an hour, I decided to go out under an umbrella to the nearest mall, figured better than just staying in. The City Square Mall, it was decorated for Christmas and it looked lovely. A kids show was going on and the kids were just going ballistic, I loved the energy. I found a sports/utility store, it had a lot of stuff, from camping equipment to adventure sports, I ended up buying some cool things.
It is not that I was hungry but I wanted to try some different kind of food, so I went to the food court and began the confusing process again of selecting what to eat. I ended up eating from a Japanese place, I selected a meal which had Teriyaki chicken, Salmon, Rice, and Soup. I believe soup and rice are part of most of the meals, so be prepared for that. While eating I ended up having a conversation with a lady from Singapore, she told me about her kids, about the culture, about National Service, it was a profound experience.
Next on my list was China Town so I took the MRT to reach there, to be honest, it was a not what I was expecting it to be. The only good thing which I found about the whole China Town was the Tintin store, it had a lot of collectibles but photography was not allowed inside the store. Then after walking around a bit, I decided to head towards Harbourfront.
I saw a lot of cool things around the harbor, I saw a cruise ship for the first time in my life, some structures which really don’t make any sense to me. There was a mall there from where I bought toys for my sister’s kids. Then, I went back to the hotel to get rid of the extra stuff with me as I was really excited for Clarke Quay, I was gonna meet some friends there in the night.
