#278 - Day Out

Hello to all lovelayes reading my blog now. :)

Touristy entry update with touristy photos for today. :D
Read on to know why.
For those who hate boring entries, this entry is not for you.
But if you like to see touristy/memorialic/museumic (all words anyhow invented) places in Singapore, read on.

 Breakfast at Coffee&Toast at Citylink Mall.

Super bohua.
The toast only semi toasted and the eggs are lukewarm.
(Black specks on egg are dark soya sauce)
Cheese&Ham toast set cost $4.40 after change of drink to Iced Milo of additional 50cents.
Plus they don't have serviette.
I requested for it and they told me it cost 30cents.
Wtf. Nice way to earn kaching manz.

Sian full. Should have eaten at Mac instead. 

Went round and round finding ACM.

Decided to head there because it's FOC for students and we were bored anywayz.

On the way there...

Saw this vintage looking lamppost.
The weather was good with pretty looking clouds. ;)

Notice the fountain at the background?

It's Tan Kim Seng Fountain.
Remember studying about it in Primary School Chinese Textbooks.
Wiki-ed it and apparently this was built to commemorate his contribution towards Singapore's first public waterworks.

Moving on...

The Cenotaph.
It was built in memory of the 124 British soldiers born or resident in Singapore who gave their lives in the World War I (1914-1918), with a second dedication (but no names) added in remembrance of those who died in World War II (1941-1945).
It is Singapore's first war memorial.

Victoria Clock Tower, Victoria Memorial Hall and Victoria Theatre.
Details of origins at Wiki (direct link to Victoria Memorial Hall)

It's also here that I saw the CHAO TAH (charred or burnt) Sir Stamford Raffles!
With his flatly combed hair and oh-so-huge leg muscles looking faraway.
I joked that he must have developed such HUGGGEEEE muscles from standing for so long (nearly a century)!

Dalhousie Obelisk.
It was built to commemorate the second visit of the Marquis of Dalhousie, the Governor-General of India from 1848 to 1856, to Singapore in February 1850. The objective of the visit was to consider the reduction of administrative expenditure.

Guess where we headed next? :)

In case you were wondering, that is hair, not armpit hair or whatsoever, but hair HAIR from the head. LOL.

 Asian Civilisation Museum.
Yes we finally arrived.

The displays were quite boring actually however there were a few worth looking at. :)
FOC, don't expect so much. :P

Taking a break by the river side...

Guess what I got from the Museum Shop? :)

Pick Up Stixs! :D
Childhood game! :)

Omg throwface. People go Museum Shop get antiques we get Pick Up Stixs.
But don't care! :)

 Saw the Bleached Sir Stamford Raffles statue before leaving.

Lunch at Just Acia.
 All these plus free flow of drinks and icecream = value for money!
Love the QQ chawanmushi! :D

Okay that's all.
Bye lovelayes. :) :D :) :D
