Day 22 -- Shopping Spree

I shopped in Orchard Road on Day 21, but this post is long enough for today, will backdate during next post. ^_________^

**************************************

Lunch @ Food Republic, Vivo City
Oriental style food court, look familiar, like grandmother's house huh?

It's like 'people mountain people sea', difficult to get a place.

Old kitchen utensils, everything looks old, broken, used.

My lunch, fried hor fun (干炒河)

**********************************
National Geographic (sorry, i forgot to take a photo of the entrance)

The 1st station i visited in National Goegraphic, putumayo world music. I don't know what 'putumayo' means, so I look for it in wikipedia and this is what i've got:-

The word putumayo comes from the Quechua language. The verb putuy means "to spring forth" or "to burst out", and mayo is a variant of mayu, meaning river. Thus it means "gushing river".

Hmmm.....anything to do with the music? All I saw was "Salsa", "African Reggae", "Latin", "Indian", "Acoustic French" etc. I tried to listen to it, kinda nice, as if you're in their world, dancing with them.


A wide selection of books, travel guides, magazines, postcards etc, all are from the photographers & journalists of National Geographic.

Cover page of monthly issue. I'm not sure which year, 'coz the words are too small.

The photo gallery

People sitting at the theater, watching National Geographic.

Furniture from worldwide for sale, some are antiques.

The fish fossil

Toys

Ooppss...I forgot to take a photo of cloths they sell here. It's damn expensive! Even more expensive than some branded stuff! A knitted blouse is over 100SGD!

**********************************
Things I hunted today

A River Island blouse, guess how much is the price?

Chocolate from The Cocoa Tree, buy 3 get 1 free and I shared with Si Tieng.
Postcard entitled "The Venice Gondola". This is my dream travel destination.

Bought 2 Bearbrick 19 series for my brother.

This is the skirt I wanted to buy but I was broke. I purposely set a low budget for the day, so that I buy less, but i failed.
So Niko, please help to take note if this dress appears in Warehouse, buy for me with your stuff price.
LOL....it's S$69 here

I saw new arrival Adidas sport shoes, nice T-shirt, elegant belt for my dress,sunglasses....Gosh, so much i wanted to buy. Wait for me ya, I'll come back next week after I've got my salary.

*****************************************************
Drum performance, they're acting like Pinocchio.

Scenery outside Vivo City, opposite of Sentosa. I arrived just in time that I managed to capture the sunlight shining from the back of the cloud. Nice huh?

人因梦想而伟大

这两天都有跟二姨丈一家人聊过天。爸爸妈妈,快点学会上网嘛!那我们就不用付昂贵的电话费了嘛!

后来啊,我瞄一瞄电视机,无意中看到画面是西雅图的夜景。啊!我什么时候才可以去这个地方呢?中学的时候,少女时期的我们很爱看小说。其中,我最喜欢的是藤井树的故事。在那之前我就已经听过西雅图这个地方,可是对她一点概念都没有。藤井树的《B栋十一楼》让我对西雅图有了一份憧憬。

人,都会有一个梦想的是吗?
人找到了梦想以后,所做的每一件事,好像都会与梦想有关的!
我想我的梦想就是走遍全世界吧!
我不知道什么时候开始
喜欢看旅游节目
喜欢看旅游书籍
喜欢收集别人寄来的明信片,然后告诉自己我要重踏一遍他们去过的地方
可以很快适应新环境
新年的愿望变成了每年都要去新地方旅行

2010年来到以前,我偷偷挑战自己,30岁以前,一定要去日本旅行!呵呵...

还有这些我一定要去的地方


西雅图
罗马
巴黎 威尼斯纽约 拉斯维加斯
Lake Tekapo 悉尼
台湾希腊 阿拉斯加 埃及
阿姆斯特丹 万里长城
多伦多 尼加拉瀑布

都是耳熟能详的地方是不是?是的,如果这些地方我都没去过,怎么去别的别人没听过的地方呢?

梦想,我来了!!

A Glance at Neighbourhood

I took these pictures after dinner on my 2nd day in Singapore. Does my living environment look good?
第二天的晚餐后,我拍下这些照片。我的居住环境还不错吧?

A road next to my apartment.
公寓旁边的一条马路。

Basketball court just in front of my apartment. How I wish I'm a basketball fan :p
公寓前面的篮球场。我多希望我是篮球发烧友。

Public barbeque area. We can only have this in condominiums in Malaysia.
共用烧烤区。在大马,我们只能在高级公寓找得到这个。

Theater? I guess this is for activities organized by the resident community. I saw children roller-skating here.
剧场?我想这里应该是居民管理协会举办活动的地方。我看见小孩在这里滑直排轮。

Day 2 - Landlord is a pet lover & Kitty's fan

Yes! My landlord (the wife) is a rabbit and guinea pig lover. I've never seen people keep rabbit and guinea pigs in living room, right on the tiles, only by fencing them as if they're in the cage. I really thought that she keeps them in huge cage when I visit the house and that's the reason I'm not allowed to use the living room. Kind enough, they provide a small tv in my room.

是的,我的房东太太是个兔子和天竺鼠痴。我从来没看过有人在客厅里养兔子和天竺鼠,直接在地砖上,用铁围栏围起来当笼子。在我第一次到访的时候,我真的以为她把它们装在笼子里,而那就是我不能用客厅的原因。还好她够仁慈,给我一架小电视。







******************************************************

Other than that, she's a Hello Kitty fan. Here's the Kittys I could find around the house, her bedroom is excluded. Do you manage to spot more? I think I can initiate a game called "Kitty Hunting" in the house, who can get the most Kittys, he'll get prize, LOL...

除此之外,她还是个吉蒂猫迷。这些都是我在屋子里到处都找到的吉蒂猫,除了她的睡房进不去以外。你找得到更多的吗?我想我应该可以玩一个叫“寻找吉蒂猫”的游戏,找到最多吉蒂猫的有奖品!哈哈...
Kitchen 厨房
Washing machine area 洗衣机周围

This is nothing related to Kitty, it's only because they are cute!
这些不关吉蒂猫的事,只是看见可爱拍下来。

p/s : The living room is actually a prohibited area but I sneaked into it to get these precious photos while the landlord is out to work :p Appreciate it, LOL....
其实客厅是禁地,为了拍这些难得的照片,我偷偷潜进去噢!好好地珍惜,哈哈...

Chapter 1 新加坡的第一天

Dang dang dang~~my first day in Singapore! It's really a busy and tiring day. Busy unloading my luggage and tidy up.
新加坡的第一天,好累啊!一整天忙着收拾,收拾和收拾!

Everything you see here is provided by my landlord, including the pillows and bedsheet. So, don't you guys worry about me. :)
妈妈,不用担心啦!房东很好人啦!(暂时看来啦!) 给我两个枕头, 还把我的床铺好了!


Fan is brand new, tv, computer table and study table is in good condition. The only thing not so good is the air-cond, it's window unit =_= a bit noisy. Luckily I dun get used to sleep with air-cond switched on and my new room is not stuffy. It is not facing west, not too warm after sunset. :)
房间不是对着西边,太阳下山后一点都不觉得热哦!其实来到这里第二天,我都不知道太阳从那一边升起 :p

2 door wardrobe and a mirror given. :) Please note that that is not a stand for the mirror, it's a chair for the table =_= So I have to buy a new little table for the mirror perhaps.
两门衣橱,还有一面镜子,都是房东给的。可是镜子后面的只是书桌的椅子,我要买新的小桌子放我的化妆品、护肤品之类的。
