Cartcart’s coming to Singapore!

My dearest has just recently booked his flight to Singapore. He’ll be here around the end of December so a big chance that we’ll spend Hari Raya together!

I’m most excited! I miss him so much, that it gets so depressing, it’s unbelievable.

Now where shall I take him to look around?

There are a couple of places where I could bring him – such as the more popular destinations such as the Sentosa Island for a day of frolicking at the beach or go to the different attractions there.

We could go to the esplanade together and catch a musical concert in the halls inside or just chill out by the bay and to listen to the band playing by the sea.

Maybe even going to the zoo (though it has been years since I’ve last been there) to see all sorts of animals in an ‘open concept’ environment and the night safari after that.

Or we could go the ethnic way and visit a tea house in Chinatown, eat delicious curries and pratas and see the Sri Mariamam Temple in Little India while I drag him to Geylang Serai or Arab Street to have him fitted with a Songkok (Malay Hat), Kain Samping (Kind of like a Sarong) and Capal (Malay Sandals) and visit the Sultan Mosque

Or we could go the urban way and let him see the heart of the city while we visit city hall and walk along war memorial to the parliament house, or to the Elgin bridge as we watch the bum boats pass by the rivers of Clarke quay.

I’d like to show him the art museum, the kitchy Haw Par Villa and if he’s up to it, maybe go to the rustic charms of Pulau Ubin or to the East Coast Park.

We’ll go to the Botanic Garden to see the beautiful flora and have a little picnic while the concert plays on.

But I would be happy even doing simple things with him, like eating at a hawker center together with him and let him sample a few local favourites, going to the shopping center together with him to catch a movie (even though I believe movie tickets are horribly overpriced)

I’ll let him have a first hand experience of the public transportation here and we could compare the prices of things when we go shopping, be it for groceries at Fairprice or electrical items at Sim Lim Square or even books at the borders book store.

And then a walk along Orchard road to visit the Istana and then stroll along the streets at night time, which, by then be full of lights and decorations.

And obviously since I’m a Jurong girl, I won’t forget to let him see the beautiful lakeside park that we have here and we’ll stroll by the Chinese Gardens and sit down by the bench watch the beautiful and tranquil scene in front of us.

We could have breakfast in the Bird Park, sipping our breakfast tea while birds of a multitude of colours surround us.

And since Cartcart is such a Maths-lover, We could even go to the Science Center which is just a couple of minutes ride from here. I think he’ll like it ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ll even let him try a taste of durian. It will be interesting I think. I’ve never heard of an European eating durians before. Have you?

I’m like da king of fruits!

    bet u will be counting down the days

  2. wow, looks like u have all the plans in place. ๐Ÿ™‚ i’d be blur if i were to bring someone non-sporean ard our little island; i hardly get around much here as it is! =p

    i just hope that he will be here long enough for u to carry out all your plans! XD XD

  3. Bring me along if you can? Wanna see YOUR dearest face to face. x))

  4. My alter ego : Ehehehe, yep, just waiting for the day to come ๐Ÿ™‚ Though its a tussle between my A-level retake in November *screams*

    Thats a possibility, myztika … hahahaha! We can only plan but sometimes the plan doesnt pass through ๐Ÿ˜›

    Diana : I’m sure you’ll meet him ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Well, you’ve got everything figured out. Just need to plan and organise the outings. Great ideas you’ve got there, btw. Some places I’ve never even gone to for dating. =/

    Will you let him be your pillion? Hehe.

  6. Sha : Photography is a hobby of mine ๐Ÿ™‚ If i were rich, I would buy all the lenses and filters that I can think of! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Shane : I just hope that it will turn out alright ๐Ÿ™‚

    Miza : Say, is the Jurong Island spot still opened to outsiders? I’ll plan more in December, its just some rough ideas at the moment ๐Ÿ™‚ And him being my pillion? Thats the plan actually ๐Ÿ˜‰ But after the vai incident, I’m not too confident now …

  7. woohoo!!! he’s coming here? good for u…but if u wanna come to jurong island i think u can pass dat idea, it’s not permitted anymore…need special pass to go inside…anyway i saw u parked ur scooter near popular bookstore @ jurong east mrt. i’m in my bus transport to go to work last week…hehehe…

  8. If you’re refering to an entry I did in my blog before, I think you mean Jurong Hill. Yeah, it’s always open. You know where it is right? Go to Jurong Bird Park but instead of turning to the carpark, you just go straight up the winding road. But the tower doesn’t have any benches to sit on though. That’s the bummer. Nice place nonetheless.

    Practise more pillion-ing for the confidence. You can do it! =)

  9. Raimie, yes! Would be wonderful to see him again ๐Ÿ™‚ You saw me? I didnt see you … I dont even know what you look like ๐Ÿ˜› By the way, dont tell anyone that I parked illegally ๐Ÿ˜›

    Miza : Thanks! I’ll go and survey when I’m free (like November or December haha!) Is that a hint for me to pick up more pillions? Hmmm ….

  10. Marina…!!! it’s good to hear that he’s coming down to Singapore. About the durians…maybe he should try something alot tamer like…durian puffs or cakes, etc. If he likes it..then give him da real thing!
    u can actually see how raimie looks like in my blog…during our pirate days….!

  11. Durian cakes? Never thought of that, but thats a great idea, red! I love those cakes from Jurong East ๐Ÿ™‚ I think he’d like those cakes. I saw that pic of raimie and you in class, but honestly, I cant tell who is who ๐Ÿ˜

  12. arr…matey!!! don’t bring up d subject of pirates…redz, u look much different back then…hehehe…anyway, u do might want to bring him watch d “slaughter” or korban? if he’s not dat squemish…

  13. Pirates? I’m half bugis so I’m a decendant of pirates too …Arrrr!!! Hahahaha!

    Slaughter? Korban? He might not be squemish but *I* am ๐Ÿ˜›

  14. Marina, my husband who is Swedish, absolutely loves durian. He had heard from a former colleague about how horrible it is and that made him determined to try it on his first trip here in 2004. Subsequently it became a test of the brave to all our overseas guests – the husband would instigate them to try the real thing and if they’re really turned off, at least have a taste of the ice cream variety! :o)
