A Day in Singapore : Part 2

before that, click on A Day in Singapore:Part 1 if you haven't read the first one

okay, so where were we...

give me a moment to recall
oh ya, in the mrt heading to kampung glam. 

it was late in the afternoon when we arrived here. all of us were famished and tired from all the non stop walking. lol. nampak sangat tak berapa nak fit sesorang. ahahah. we had lunch at singapore zam zam restaurant and ate their famous nasi beriyani and murtabak. we devoured our lunch like hungry hyenas. (pfffffffft, just joking). sumpah rasa macam sedap gilos maka sebab tengah lapar and letih time tu. 

after lunch we went to the sultan mosque to perform prayers and catch a break. we stayed there for an hour(or maybe two, cause i cannot remember. sheeesh) to refresh ourselves. gosh, time ni kan, rasa macam taknak dah gerak ke tempat seterusya sebab penat. pikul backpack takde la berat mana pun sebenarnya, tapi hakak tak katang(wtf ahahah)

after we freshen ourselves, we went to kampung glam and haji lane. sadly, we didn't manage to explore two places thoroughly since we were lacking of time. 

we headed for merlion park after visiting kampung glam and haji lane. we took the mrt to raffles place station. the merlion park is about 15 mimutes walk from the raffles station. well, honestly it depends on your pace. kalau jalan laju-laju cepatlah sampai.

catching feelings on my way to merlion park. whooops!

you can see the marina bay sands from afar. maaaaaan, the view is insanely satisfying and amazing if you're into modern building architure and etc. okay, this is my humble opinion la. kudos to the people who were involved in developing all these bad boys!! you made a great job! *thumbs up

managed to snap this while walking towards merlion park. whooooooo, the place is flooded with tourist. duhhhh, it's a must-visit place in singapore. you cannot say you're done exploring singapore if you haven't "say hi" to the iconic merlion!

tadaaaaaa *excuse my tired face por favor

late in the noon, we headed for joo chiat, the peranakan area. but sadly, time and exhaustion was catching up on us. we couldn't manage to find the place though we had asked many locals many many times on our way there. the map that we had didn't much help. my feet were aching and i felt that i couldn't barely walk.(hey peeps, please make sure that you wear super duper comfortable footwear to avoid this incident) we ended pusing tempat yang sama. lastly, all of us decided to skip joo chiat and went to the next destination. i was quite disappointed but fret not, i'll go there in my future trip. after that we took mrt to bayfront station and headed for gardens by the bay. 

we reached gardens by the bay at almost 7 p.m. just in time for the super tree to light up .

at about 7.45 p.m there is a light and sound show known as OCBC garden rhapsody. in case if you're wondering about the admission fee to super tree grove, it's free yaw! at the super tree grove you'll find a walkway known as the OCBC skyway. it allowed visitors to walk amongst the super tree. if you're interested in walking on the skyway you need to buy tickets. it cost SDG5 (per person) for adult and SGD3(per person) for children. we ascended to the walkway by a lift.  ohh, if your're acrophobiac or afraid of height, walking on the skywalk is not a very good idea. the OCBC garden rhapsody started while we went on the skywalk. we managed to watch the garden rhapsody show from above. personally for me, the view from below is much more better cause you get to see the whole thing in all it's glory but it depends on your own perspective. the show lasted for about 15-20 minutes if i am not mistaken. 

check out super duper tree during the rhapsody, the light is so cool isn't it? a little too over excited here right zafirah. heeeeee

my legs were literally shaking when izyan snap this picture. (pffffft siapa suruh tengok bawah zafirahhh)

ohh apart from that you get a birds' eye view on the gardens by the bay and marina bay area. the picture below is quite blurry. excuse my shaky hands guys pleasee

we left gardens by the bay at about 9 p.m and went straight to  woodlands train station. our journey back to kuala lumpur took about 8 hours. we arrived at kl sentral around 7.00 a.m. indeed, the whole trip was damn tiring but i felt utterly satisfied since we went to a lot of places in a short period of time. ohhh ya, this was also my first attempt in backpacking while travelling. (ada orang tu nak jadi backpackers tegar satu hari nanti ,lols). what else.... i do hope that i'll be able to explore this country again since there's a lot more places and activities to be done.

pardon my late update on this entry. at first i thought that i might be able to write this entry shortly after the part 1. but sadly, i got caught up with other things. and sorry for the lack of information in this entry. to be honest, i lost my original draft which was kept in my journal, hence there may be some things that i completely forgot to include in this post. 

that is all, ciao
zafirah xx
