Just A Nice Guy

This Is Just To Say

It was a wonderful couple of days away. Though we had a fight all the way, a bit of drama at Orchard Road, I believe that both of us learned our lesson and countless memories made.
Despite the long travel to get there and back, I'd do it again in a heartbeat. And right now it's time to go back to the real world - well, my real world. But I guess that's okay. This trip is exactly what I needed at exactly the time I needed it and for that, I'm thankful.

Brunch at Coffee Bean

I forced myself to wake up that morning though I was still tired because of the competition. *Don't get me wrong, I didn't participate but I was there the whole day*
We walked again and again to the MRT station and this time heading to USS ! :)) First, we stop for brunch at the shopping mall.

Warm Chocolate Cake


Look who's hungry here ! lol

Universal Studio !

One word : It's worth it ! You just have to pay $72 for the ticket and spent the whole day in USS ! There's a loadddds of things waiting for you. I guess I'm doing unofficial ads for USS.
I felt like I was in my imaginary land, everything. The Holllywood Street, Madagascar, The Lost World, Egypt.... The roller coaster? Try it until your heart stop beating. I was screaming aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa all the way and he was like 'no face expression'?? What? But at least I did it though I'm scared of heights actually.

Marilyn Monroe !

Yes, I am a 'floating map'

He choked me ! Damn you, Frankeinstein


Far Far Away

Old Skool

The Riverside Cruise

6.30 pm
Finally, I can have shower ! hahaha, I know it's kind of lame. Seriously, that's all I need.
We head ourselves to The Inn Crowd Backpackers.
Surprising, it was awesome ! They had own kitchen, candies machine, magazines, beans bags, sofa, radio and everything. A place like home. I know, it is hard for you guys to imagine the place, so here's a pictures to summed it up.

Living room

Dining table


8.30 pm
Again, we walked 1km to Little India MRT station heading to Marina station. I was freaking excited ! Nightlife in Singapore ! woooohoo ! We bought ourselves a boat cruise tickets along the river for 30 minutes.
The moment I was at the bridge, I was amazed. This is gooood ! They have a lot of restaurants, open bar and stalls.Good food. hehe. We took the cruise first and it was worth it paid $10 for that !

Excited faces I guess
We went to front to get better view.
The Marina Bay Sand - I'm so going to stay there someday !

Took Beca way back home, pity that uncle. :P

The RockMaster Competition

5.30 am
Everything was dark, empty and dull in Lavender Terminal Bus. We walked down about 1km away to the nearest MRT station and danggg ! Straight away go to Dover station?? The Singapore Polytechnic.

6.30 am - 3.00 pm
Yes, the whole day we were there, at the competition waiting for his turn. I was so tireeeeed, sticky, sleepy. But not even a single a complaint from me. Anyway, I was quite surprised with the polytechnic, it was HUGE! They even had a McDonald, Burger King ! Wow, I am so in love with the food ! :)
The best part, the whole area equipped with wifi ! So, I played with his Ipad, googling maps, places to go later and facebooking plus twittering. *Can't get rid of that actually. *

3.00 pm - 6.00 pm
Finally, his turn. I never had a chance to see he climb at Camp5. So, I was a bit excited to see he climb those wall. It may look easy, but it was actually kinda hard. I didn't know that sometimes you have to depend on two finger and hang yourself. Hmm, imagine if I climb?? *Ohmy, I don't think that I'll able to move at all! *

Anyway,  back to the competition. I saw he was a bit nervous since there were a lot of talented and experienced climbers. He completed 4 of 6 route during the competition, and I am so proud of him ! It was his first competition, and I am glad I was there supporting him.

Just for you: 
"All your life you are told the things you cannot do. All your life they will say you're not good enough or strong enough or talented enough; they will say you're the wrong height or the wrong weight or the wrong type to play this or be this or achieve this. THEY WILL TELL YOU NO, a thousand times no, until all the no's become meaningless. All your life they will tell you no, quite firmly and very quickly. AND YOU WILL TELL THEM YES."

Waiting for his turn 3.30pm

Thinking on completing the route
First route completed !
Second route completed !

The Planning

Stage 1: The Invitation.
A: Have u decided to go to Singapore with me?
B: Oh I would love to! :)

Stage 2: Place to Stay.
We had decided to go for a backpacking, I am serious, BACKPACKING !! All my life, I always had 'diva holiday' but for this trip, I'm not going to stay in hotel.
p/s: Oh nooo ! My make-up, my clothes, shoes, everything need to be minimize ! :(

Stage 3: The Preparation.
Since it was a last minute plan, literally last minute. We decided a week earlier, everything need to be done soon. Passport check ! Bus ticket check ! Accommodation check ! Maps of Singapore check !
Only left, ass-ignment. I had assignment due on friday and I was working my ass out doing my report the day before until few hours before we left. Pheeeuw, I did it !

Holiday mode ON !

[Received text] 'Lets meet up soon!'
[Replied] 'Okay!'

My reaction: Ohmygod, I was so excited ! Jumping around like a small little girl who just made a promise that she's going to Disneyland soon, smiled the whole day even when she's sleeping, hoping the day to come.

Preparation: Exam on the next day? Oooopss ! I need plan ! Woke up early in the morning, went jog around Central Park for an hours. Grab myself a cup of tea ; Vanilla Mint blend, find a perfect spot, take a deep breath, and earplug with Norah Jones. Bring it on ! Slowly open my Biopsychology textbook. Believe it, I spent the whole week at Starbucks revising.
A week later... on the day itself...

[Received text] 'I'm sorry, I can't make it.'
[Replied] 'Its okay.'

I was like.... crushed.
