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 Gills N Shells (Lavender)

I was invited for a food tasting session at Gills N Shells not long ago to try out their new dishes. Gills N Shells is a restaurant/drinking place that is inspired by the ocean. The restaurant specialises in seafood, thus they offer a vary of seafood dishes. They are dedicated to serve quality food with the best quality. Gills N Shells is easily accessible as they are located just behind Hotel Boss facing the river. The nearest train station is at Lavender MRT Station, thus it will only take a 5 minutes walk to get to this restaurant.

Gills N Shells recently launched their seafood platter served in a dim sum basket. As mentioned, there is a variety of seafood choices you can select from. However, there is a minimum order of three seafood choices. If you are an adventurous person or you can eat a lot, you may wish to order the All-in-A Basket Special. It comes along with all the seafood listed in the menu.

Recently, I was greeted with an orh nee cake right at my door step thanks to Buttertrade

My internship in Japan (Niigata)

If you haven't read my previous blogposts about my overseas industrial attachment at Japan you can click on the links below: http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2014/09/exploring-niigata-japan-kite-museum.html http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2014/08/my-trip-to-japan-niigata-day-1.html''

Working in Japan is one of my greatest experience so far! The people there are so nice to communicate too and they are not only patient but very kind too. Despite the communication barrier, we were still able to translate our body language to talk to each other. The only funny thing is when we have to use Google Translate to talk to each other. Above is a picture of a huge tentage that my colleague and I built. Do note that everything including the tent sheets are made from scratch! 

I was attached to a logistics company during my internship period! The company has many years of experience in the industry thus I learnt plenty of things about administration & practical work. Japanese are very passion…
