How I spend my Christmas - Part 3

This post continue from How I Spend my Christmas - Part 2. On the previous post, we stopped at Orchard Road. But that is not how we end this year Christmas eve. After Orchard Road, we took the MRT to the Esplanade station and walk to the Esplanade - Theatres on the bay.

The place is alongside Marina Bay, so we can actually see Marina Bay from here. The Esplanade building itself is beautiful. Then we walk to the Merlion Park where we have some snapshots of the beautiful surroundings and have a cup of coffee at the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. That wraps up our Christmas eve.

The next morning, we took the MRT to Vivo City and then took the monorail to Sentosa. There we go to our main purpose of Singapore visit - the Universal Studio. Inside Universal Studio we experienced how movies are made in the Lights, Camera, Action in New York. We also experienced the Transformers ride with Evac.

We have our middle eastern style lunch at the Oasis Spice Cafe in Egypt. Next, we walked to The Lost World, but due to long queue, we did not experience the Canopy Ride that we initially planned. But, we watch the Waterworld show, well, the show is actually awesome with all the effects and loud noise which makes the show real.

Next we move on to Far Far Away before going Madagascar to take a ride, hmm, not sure what is the name of the ride in Madagascar, but it was fun, though. Our final destination in the Universal Studio is back to Hollywood, where we shopped for souvenirs. It was like a whole day in the Universal Studio and we took a bus ride back to Vivo City Mall where we had our dinner there at the Mussels.

Finally, we took the MRT back to the hotel. My younger sister and I left the hotel to take some famous biscuits and cookies from Ipoh to her office, and travel back to her place where I met my friend at the nearest McD. We chatted for hours before finally call it a day.

Well, that sorts of wraps up my Christmas celebration this year - traveling in Singapore with my family, well, except brother. It's an interesting vacation, although everyone is like very tired when we are all back in Malaysia.

How I spend my Christmas - Part 2

This post continue from How I spend my Christmas - Part 1. Well, once we reached there Singapore at about 4 in the morning, we call my younger sister and parked our car nearby. We all went into the room that she's staying and everyone else is like getting a nap except both of us and finally we drove to nearby for our breakfast. Well, I even posted the Singapore laksa which is the Malaysian curry mee. Anyway, thank God that my breakfast, although not good, but still better as I heard a lot of comment from others that the food in Singapore is a little bit sweet.

Then we checked into Peninsula Excelsior Hotel and go to the nearest MRT station to buy the day ticket as we will be traveling a lot on this Christmas eve. Since my mum requested to go Haw Par Villa, we go there. It seems like we are a bit luckily as according to my friend, the place was undergoing renovation just not long ago. Anyway, we get to visit this place and took some interesting pictures of the place.

Next, we went to Holland Village to meet up with my grand uncle who stayed nearby and we have lunch with him and his wife at the Crystal Jade Restaurant. To my surprise, the "har kao" can match closely with the "har kao" at Foh San Restaurant back in Ipoh. After the lunch and tea break with him, finally, we go back to the hotel where everyone else except me and my younger sister take a 2 hour nap.

I followed her back to her place to take something and then we are back to the hotel to have shower and then move on to a monument place named Chijmes to have our dinner there. After our dinner, we took the MRT to Sommerset and walk to Orchard Road where the road is nicely decorated by Christmas decoration. The place is so crowded but still, we manage to get the feel of Christmas in Singapore.

Ok. Guess that's all for now. Tomorrow will blog the remaining Singapore trip. Now wanna go to sleep already. Nitez guys.

How I spend my Christmas - Part 1

On the way back to Ipoh

Well, Christmas is over, but to me, I am still having Christmas spirit in me. Hmm....actually not the real Christmas spirit, it is only the holiday mood that is actually with me. Anyway, this year, Christmas has been different for me. Usually on Christmas, our family members will be gathering together and have Christmas meals, be it in the form of course meals or BBQ style.

This year however, my mum intended to visit Singapore and so, everyone of us agree to go to Singapore except, my brother. Well, he told me the reason that he did not want to go is due to budget constraint, so, me and my younger sister will not force him to go with us, although we can sponsor him actually.

Anyway, last Friday, I directly came back from work from Kulim and then pack my stuff. While I was packing, my parents went to reload the Touch and Go card and then we pack our luggage into my car as we will be driving to Singapore from Ipoh. Before we left for Singapore, we had supper at McD with my brother and then finally drive to Singapore.

The journey took us about 6 hours plus. Then we have our car checked into Singapore and finally search for the way to my younger sister's place, Admiralty. Coincidentally, an ex-colleague cum friend also stayed there, so, I am to meet her on our second night in Singapore.

My breakfast in Singapore, Singapore laksa which is Malaysia curry Mee

Christmas Wishes

I have not been blogging in this blog for about a month, and time really flies. The last post that i blogged here is to wish those who celebrated the festival of light, Deepavali, a Happy Deepavali and now whenever we go out to the shopping malls, we will see the Christmas decorations, signaling Christmas is almost here and it's about time for many of us to start preparing for this holiday season. Not to mention, 2012 will be knocking at our door a week after Christmas.

So, let's talk about Christmas first. For Christians, Christmas is actually to celebrate the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ. Then for many others non-Christians, Christmas is about Santa Claus, gifts and nice decorations, and the best part of it of course is the holiday.

Then, we also have Christmas wishes - not sure where this tradition comes about, but many of the pop Christmas songs use Christmas wishes as the theme. If it is true, what do you wished for this Christmas?
