NDP' 11, Contingent Stalk

Happy Birthday Singapore!

As what the title has stated, this post is about our nation's birthday and many of you guys really want to know where I have been for the whole day . Today was one of the best and exciting moments of 2011 to me, as I get to experience chasing the NDP contingents. If you guys don't know whats the meaning of "contingent" it means "A group of people united by some common feature, forming part of a larger group. I met up with my NDP'10 clique today though there is only 6 of us; Aik Kien, Zanieth, Jerlyn and Darren, Geraldine left early. Despite the road closure, we still managed to see the NPCC contingent. Eventually we went from A to B followed by B to C then C to A again and ended up at the Arts Museum where we saw a beautiful scenery of the fireworks which were blocked by 2 big trees. For photos, I was quite disappointed because, most of them were fail shots or spams but can't blame us, we were too busy running around everywhere because we didn't wanted to miss the finale.

I'll wrap up this post really quick because I wanna sleep.

I'll explain along the way with the photos!
Everyone met up at City Hall MRT station at 4pm. Headed to Yoshinoya to have an early dinner before we go running around.
I guess this is only the best photo I've taken today. We walked a super long distance from Marina Square, crossing roads and kept walking and walking until we reached Singapore Flyer. Our efforts weren't wasted because we get to see the full view of the marching contingents. Form the first to the last. After that, we made our way to Marina Bay Sands as we really wanna see the City March!

FIREWORKS TIME. ( Fail Shots)
This was nice!
Didn't wanted to put up this photo cos it was super unglam.
Extremely fail shot

After everything, we went inside Marina Bay Sands shopping mall to slack till the crowd was cleared.
Zaneith looking good!
Jerlyn too!


SOOOOO WE LEFT Marina Bay Sands at 10pm, and reach back Tampines at 11pm. HAHAH exactly 1 hour ride home. We had supper after that and the only available food outlet was MACS.

Conclusion:
Today was a super awesome day. I hope we will get to do it again next year! I really miss my NDP' 10 buddies! HAHAHA Hope we'll all meet after Os.


GOODNIGHT! FINALLLLLLLLLLLLYYYY! - ps. Grammar and spelling mistakes. I'll edit it soon.

My experience at Kim's Family Food (Korean Food)

I was recommended by my friend Qin Pin to try out this Korean Restaurant that she had been telling about for ages that I really must come and try! She told me that there are more than 10 side dishes they offer and guess what? They are all FREE and refillable. Well to me, I not into Korean cuisine, but I decided to give it a try and experience the authentic food and ambience over at Kim's Family Food! There are 3 outlets in Singapore and we visited the one at 17 Lorong Kilat (near to Nooks DIY Pancakes). Address: Kim's Family Food (Korean Restaurant) 17 Lorong Kilat #01-06 Kilat Court Singapore 598139 Telephone: 6465 0535 (advised to make a reservation before you come) Entrance of Kim's Family Food  Qin Pin and Qi Man's peace twist sign photobomed this pic!  Full house okay! That's why I said you need to make a reservation before you come, if not you will be queueing outside! Btw, this is just part of the restaurant. The is restaurant is combin

My experience at KARA Cafe and Dessert Bar (Bukit Timah)

A cozy cafe located along the streets of Bukit Timah, a walkable distance from Tan Kah Kee MRT Station. KARA Cafe and Dessert Bar is no stranger in the neighbourhood as they have been around quite some time. The cafe primary focuses on serving  Los Angeles-inspired “all-day dining” food and healthy eats such as yogurt.  You may wish to know that the cafe is under the popular yogurt chain, Sogurt. Recently, I was invited by the cafe to try out their newly introduced items on the menu which is inspired by a Cali-Asian theme.  Ambience: 7.5/10  Cozy environment to relax and chill with your friends after school. The fixtures are decorated with a nature-inspired theme.  Tropical Smoothies  (Left, Tropical Peach Mango; Right, Chai Avocado Shake), SGD$8.20  I wanted to go for the standard coffee/tea, however decided to go with a smoothie instead. To my surprise, it was refreshing and yummy. I really enjoyed my tropical peach mango smoothie as the drink was well-ba

My experience at Charlie Brown Cafe (Cathay Cineleisure Orchard)

Awhile ago, I was invited back to Charlie Brown Cafe as I was told that they had revamped their menu and there were a few new offerings on their menu. Charlie Brown Cafe now has 2 outlets mainly in Singapore, one located at Cathay Cinleisure Orchard, a popular youth destination, and One KM Mall at Paya Lebar.  The entire cafe is designed in a Charlie Brown theme, if you had watched the movie, Peanuts or you grew up watching Charlie Brown, then you should be familiar with the characters in the show/movie. The entire cafe takes up about 30-40 seats and the ambience was conducive.  Root Beer Float & Coffee Macchiato Shot Mashed Potatoes  Price: $4.20  Made from fresh potatoes topped with gravy and chicken chipolata (sausage). The mashed potato was fluffy and wasn't lumpy just maybe the sauce was slightly overpowering which diminishes the taste of the mashed potatoes. I would prefer if the sauce was lesser. However, it was a great combination of addi
