Beware long post ahead. If you don’t have enough patience you can just skip this post. 🙂
I spent my Christmas holiday at Singapore and on the TRAIN with my family. We made the decision to go to Singapore on one faithful morning during our dim sum breakfast on the first/second week of December. We went to KL Sentral to buy our train tickets immediately after our dim sum breakfast. LOL. Our main objective (sis and me) was to go to Star Wars Exhibiton at Singapore Science Center.
On 24th December (Saturday), we arrived at KL Sentral at about 9.10pm by Komuter. Then I found out that of all things, I forgot to bring our Singapore map from home!!! There’s only 1 book shop at KL Sentral selling maps. We bought the Singapore map at RM17.40 (expensive!!!).
Finally after a short wait we departed from KL Sentral by Senandung Malam (economy class) at 10.35pm to Singapore. I can’t sleep and felt very cold (even though I wore 3 pieces of clothing!). Then there was an idiot smoking outside the coach without closing the coach door. Later on I hanged out a little while outside the coach while the train was moving. Dad was talking to a train attendant. When our train stopped (for the other train to pass by), I saw some people were sleeping at the train’s cafe. That gave me an idea.
Dad and me then went to the train’s cafe for a cup of Milo each. Ahhh immediately I felt the effect. My whole body cooled down. Such a nice feeling. We slept there for awhile. LOL. Then we went back to our coach and surprisingly I managed to close my eyes at around 3am. Yes it was SO uncomfortable!!! 🙁
We reached Tanjong Pagar Railway Station at 8.50am (1 hour delayed!). This means the journey to Singapore took us 10hours plus!!! We walked to Tanjong Pagar MRT from Tanjong Pagar Railway Station for 20 mins (the details from internet promised us 10mins only wor). I kept mentioning to them (my family) that we need to cancel some of our plans because we were late but nobody bother me. I guess I must be a fly buzzing around their head on a sleepy Christmas morning.
After much deliberation (whether to have our breakfast at any shop the moment we see one or follow our plan and go to Chinatown), we choose to follow our original plan. So Chinatown here we come. My dad immediately recognized the dessert shop that he tried out last year at Chinatown. However that shop was still close. Bad luck man. We ate at McD for breakfast (directly opposite the dessert shop). Our breakfast at McD costs us RM46!!!! (we have hotcakes, hash browns, eggs, coffees and fish burgers). By the time we finished our breakfast the dessert shop opens its door (at 10.30am). My dad tapau 5 dumplings from the shop. We did warned him that he’s gonna have some trouble carrying 5 heavy dumplings around Singapore but he insisted. So we have our first purchase of the day.
On the way back to Chinatown MRT, mom did some shopping at Chinatown. I helped mom tried out 2 pairs of beaded shoe (from Korea) and she ended up buying both pairs (pink and cream color). 8)
Then we headed to Jurong East MRT at 11am for the Star Wars Exhibition at Singapore Science Center. We reached Jurong East at 11.30am. We decided to travel by bus instead of walking to Singapore Science Center (we walked the last time out for the LO
