The eye of Singapore

Arrived into Singapore at 6.30am this morning, oops it should be yesterday morning now. Only had a 2-hour sleep on the plane. Then, it was full on the whole day. I was basically a giant panda roaming around Singapore today. I shopped and shopped, and shopped but still ended up empty handed, yeah, EMPTY!! Very unusual. Geez....that's a bit of a worry.

I am now all drained, tired and extremely exhausted, and I don't know why I am still up typing this post in this late hour.

Anyway, did a quick visit to the Singapore flyer, some photos taken....





My nephew - the little handsome cutie



Okie, time to hit my bed else "panda" is going to turn into a zombie tomorrow.


Night!

Panda cannot turn into zombie... unless you got bitten by a zombie... or something like that......

Doreen said...

kljs:
Haha! Yeah, most of the zombie movie used this theory. Emm...may be I am an exhausted panda whose DNA got mutated by itself due to the exhaustion? Hehehe

Doreen,
You may be able to vote as the election on on March 8. Malaysiakini is going free from March 4 to a day or so after the election.

I'm planning on visiting Sentosa Island, Singapore in Jan 09. I have a bunch of relatives there.

I don't miss shopping in Msia or Spore but it's the food I miss most. I love NZ. Just blog about my North Island Trip and preparing for South Island on my travel blog.

eastcoastlife said...

You must be gorging yourself on Kuching food ah! hehe....

You can try planting a red dragon fruit tree back in Wellington. hehehe...

Send my regards to your parents. Do I get to see their photos on your blog?

Irenecheong said...

Doreen said...

jesieblogjourney:
Welcome! I trust you had a good time in New Zealand. South Island is so much beautiful and breathtaking than North Island you reckon? I love South Island especially in their autumn.

eastcoastlife:
Hehehe, yeah, eat till I couldn't walk. Too much! I haven't got a chance to take photo with my parents yet, I sure will post them up once I snap some. (^_^)

Doreen said...
