Ihouse in SG
The weekend that I-house came to Singapore.
YJ finally arrived on Fri night (29/01), Sarah stopped over in SG for the afternoon on Sat, and Pete & his gf arrived on Sat morning. That weekend was nonstop action of bringing people around the island! STB should seriously pay me commission.
YJ’s first night upon touchdown – HOLLAND VILLAGE!
His first meal – SAMBAL STINGRAY & SAMBAL KANGKONG. (After which he wanted to eat that every day for the next two weeks.)
Reunited with the bunch!
SATURDAY WAS INSANE.
Met up with the Aussies & Shamil @ Harbourfront.
First stop: FOOD REPUBLIC
Carrot cake/Chicken rice/Rojak/Popiah
The Aussies: Pete & Sarah!
After which, we took a train to Little India to walk around. We didn’t realise that it was Thaipusam that day! An awesome coincidence. It was the first time for me witnessing the festival as well. Yea, I’m a tourist too. Singaporean fail.
Resting and recharging energy at Starbucks @ Plaza Sing.
Then it was off to Haji Lane/Raffles Hotel!
Compare & contrast.
Eventually we all piled into Illya’s car and ended up at Arab Street for awhile. We gathered around and listened to Grandfather Shamil tell us stories about Singapore back in his day..
PART II of The Weekend in the next entry!
