Hope This Won’t Be Goodbye

Last day…I woke up early and left my brother’s flat before he did. I went to Toast Box to have breakfast and to read “What The Dog Saw” by Malcolm Gladwell and I brought along my brother’s book to help me decide what to do for my last day. I had a, what I would call “self-date”. It was calming and it felt nice to just feel good about myself being alone and simply just chilling.

I walked around and found my way going to the Fountain of Wealth. I made a wish of course and that is for me to keep…Really hoping that will come true! I swear, the infrastructure of Singapore is something that amazes me. I love the concept of the 5 buildings around it to be like 5 fingers and the center is the palm which is the fountain. Amazing!

I walked by the Esplanade where I amused myself with collecting ribbons each containing one “key value”. Sadly, I wasn’t able to get one for each of the 17 values. It was fun though! I looked like a mad kid trying to get all of the ribbons even when it was raining.

My brother and I met for lunch at a Kopitiam somewhere. I don’t know why but I really enjoy eating any food Singapore tosses at me. I got some noodle with a lot of good stuff in it. I was even able to sort of talk to someone who is deaf. So that’s a +!

I was off to be alone and I went to Orchard, I don’t know why exactly…but I went inside the Ngee Ann City to look for Kinokuniya. Sadly I wasn’t able to purchase a book because I couldn’t make up my mind which book is nice and will be helpful in life. Add to that I’m nowhere near halfway through “What The Dog Saw”. When I explored the place more, to my surprise. I saw Paul!!

I bought macarons and ate them right away. They still tasted as heavenly as they did in France! I bought a croissant for my brother before I left. I decided to go back to the empty ramp place hoping there would be people this time, and luckily, there were people skateboarding, spray painting and “scooter-ing”. My favorite one is the kick scooter kid because he’s friendly and he even asked me to take pictures of him and send to him…but he forgot to tell me his e-mail address before he just left. It was still fun shooting people because I really like taking pictures of inanimate objects and animals. It was different and quite refreshing! Add to that, the kid has some serious skill!

I met up with my brother for dinner after that. We had cereal prawns and it tasted really good! I think the prawns tasted better if you eat the shell, but my brother likes it without the shell. To each his own, I guess. We went back to my brother’s flat and we fixed our bags. We rested until around 10-ish then went to Changi. Our flight was at 2:20 AM so we just had so much time to kill.
At one point we got hungry so I we stayed in McDonald’s and I tried the samurai burger which tasted so good. Reminds me of the rice burgers we had here before!
+ side: it had much sauce so the burger was really full of flavor. – side: it was messy. Haha! Would love to have that burger here in the Philippines though!
More boredom so I decided to venture around and I saw this computer terminal place and what made it fun was the large touchscreen monitors that had multi touch functions. It’s like a gigantic iPad! It’s really safe to say that Changi is one of the best airports in the world. You can probably lock me in there and I wouldn’t even mind! Haha!

We went to the boarding gate at some point and just relaxed inside the airplane. Wanted to have a comfortable sleep but at one point a baby just started crying and he/she just woke up everyone! Haha! We arrived so late back in the Philippines, we were supposed to arrive at 5:45 AM but we ended up landing at 6:30 AM. What’s up with that? Haha! It was fun though!
I’m really looking forward to my next flight to Singapore! 🙂
