Last Wednesday I followed DH to Singapore via Air Asia. DH had a couple of meetings to attend to on Thursday (yesterday).
We took an early “dinner” at the new LCCT Food Court while waiting for our 7.50pm flight:
My purpose of going there was to visit my favourite and closest cousin, Kak Timah. The last time I visited her was early this year when her second daughter remarried.
We took the MRT to Boon Lay station (in Jurong), and walked our way to her daughter’s house (she has 2 daughters, both living in Singapore).
That night DH had an early night (compared to me) while I stayed on chatting with my cousin and her daughter, Idah. Idah’s hubby was at work on night shift.
Yesterday, Idah, Kak Timah, Sharifah (Idah’s daughter) and I went to Plaza Singapura where I feasted my eyes on the wide offering of craft items on sale at The Spotlight. Most of the stuff were not worth buying (I think they are much cheaper back in Kuala Lumpur). I however ended up buying 4 balls of yarn (cotton+acrylic):
I was disappointed to see most of the yarns offered were acrylic. Even the famous Australian brands, Cleckheaton and Paton yarns there were mostly acrylis (& made in China!).
I wanted to snap more pix using my handphone, but was not sure if that was allowed. Spotlight was indeed buzzing with people buying all sorts of things. I only took the following shots:
was obviously decorated for X-mas:
We later went to Arab Street to have a late lunch of murtabak and briyani rice at the 100-year old Zam Zam Restaurant:
While waiting for the traffic light to go green for us to cross the street, I took this pic of the infamous Masjid Sultan:
We came back to Idah’s home in time to pray, pack and get ready to go to Changi Airport, where DH was already there waiting for us (he left in the morning for his appointments, and went to the airport straight away. I actually was happy enough to take the MRT to the airport but Idah insisted on driving me there. There were moments when we were caught in the home-rush jam, and listening to the traffic reports saying that certain roads heading towards Changi was not moving! Idah was very cool and confident that we would reach there in time. We did .
I made an unplanned purchase at Terminal 1, Changi Airport. To know why, read Nuni’s blog here . Since Nuni has already blogged about it, I’m just too lazy to re-tell the story .
We arrived home at 12.30 am.
I have some pix taken using my handphone, but will only upload to this blog later..
