Holiday in Singapore (Day 2)




Day 2



Second day involved a LOT of walking as we visited Lucky Plaza, Esplanade, Marina Bay, Merlion Park, China Town, Bugis Street and back to Mustafa Centre

Lucky Plaza for me is basically just a mall with a lot of cheap pasalubongs. You can buy 3 items for 10sgd. I got my 3 headband for 10sgd. My friend got her accessories same price. 

 So many Filipino goodies at Lucky Plaza

I also like to think that this mall is a place for and where Filipinos gathered every weekend (Sunday particularly) occupying the entire place, you won’t feel you’re in a foreign land. It was really good to see  a huge number of fellow filipino men but since I'm not used to crowded malls, we decided to go to our next destination.

Next spot we visited, the Esplanade. We alight at City Hall Station and started the long walk.

Esplanade or Theatres on the Bay is a performing arts venue, in Singapore. The building is known to locals as "the durians" because of it's durian like appearance. 

 Marina bay Sands and the Merlion

Too many tourists that day, I wasn’t able to take decent photos with the Merlion. So I went to the little one. Haha!



Me and the Marina Bay Sands

Since we were feeling our tummies growling already, we headed for lunch and on to our next stops: China Town, Bugis Street and Mustafa Centre. We only had a few minutes walk along China Town and Bugis as we felt so so tired from Day 1. Good thing, Paolo, our new found pinoy couchsurfer friend who's currently in Singapore accompanied us around. 

At 5:30pm, we're back at Mitraa Inn to rest and refresh before our flight back to Kuala Lumpur.
