Trip to Singapore.

Hello, dear readers, boys and girls. Before you proceed, I'd like to point out two things:
01. Photos in this entry will be of varying lightings and qualities, cause some were taken with a Canon point-and-shoot, some with an iPhone 3Gs, some with an iPhone 4, others with an iPhone 5.
02. If I come across as a little moody/blah/blergh today, please read THIS. Most girls will probably agree with me. As for the guys.. Just read. It might seem unnecessary and tmi now, but knowledge is power. That post will come in handy when you have got a girlfriend to deal with. You can thank me later.

If the title of this post doesn't already scream "OBVIOUS!", I shall enlighten you. 

I flew down to Singapore last month. Alone! Please clap.
My previous post was all about my experience over at USS before I felt that squeezing everything into one blog post would make it too beefy.

*   *   *

Idk if you'll believe this, but it was my first time flying to Singapore hahahaha.
I normally take the bus from OneUtama (Malaysia) to NovenaSquare (Singapore) instead cause it's cheaper.
Look. At. That.
I've always heard good things about Changi Airport, but this.... Ehmagawd.
I stood in line for almost an hour. Cray cray shananay.

For this trip, I stayed at the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel on Havelock Street. The nearest MRT station's Clarke Quay station, so... Of course I had to snap a picture. Duh.

Aaaanyway, whilst in Singapore, I called up almost every single contact I had, cause nobody likes being alone...
Eating alone is super sad.

And so I met up with one of my cousins on the first day! 

Camwhore camwhore. The other dude's some friend. Idk hahaha. Bad with names.

Then second day, jeng jeng jengggg. USS! 
Kay, most of the photos are already up on my blog so here's one post-USS.
Taken at some bar at Dempsey Hill.
Cider instead of beer 'coz I don't like bittery shit.
Heh I just realised that I didn't really post a picture of my uncle in the previous entry. #selfishme
See, I made up for it :D You get a bonus photo of me as well.

Room service at night, because I can. Mwahahah. Was just too lazy to walk from the hotel and scout for food :( 
Brio's Triple Decker Sandwich.

As for days 3, 4 and 5, it was Krav Maga all day every day. Krav Maga is INTENSE. I kid you not. Came back from the bootcamp with blue-black bruises all over and a fractured hand.
X-ray scan at Assunta Hospital.
I MET BOAZ AVIRAM. Grandmaster of Krav Maga who has also taught the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).
KAPOW! Look at me trying so hard not to laugh.
And omg, Boaz is such a nice guy. He even taught me how to Salsa wtf hahahah. 
Yez bitches. He autographed a copy of his book for me.

To be honest, I didn't expect that the Krav Maga bootcamp would take up so much of my time. Had no time to shop, boohoo.

I did, however, make time for food! Nyehehe.

01. Ben and Jerry's icecream! Sure, we have it in Malaysia, but all we can get are pint-sized BnJs. They have BnJ icecream stalls scattered all across Singapore :O :O :O
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. I love anything half-baked/doughey.
02. MORE ICECREAM. Marble Slab.
Guess which did I choose :P
Went to the branch just next to Clarke Quay MRT station. The girl working there was soooo nice, she even added in extra toppings for me!
AND, I asked if I could give a go at "folding" and preparing the icecream, AND SHE SAID YES!!

I honestly have no idea how she does it though. It requires so much strength and effort to "fold" the ingredients into the icecream base wtf?! I gave up after a while -.-
Mine's all melty now 'coz I sucked so bad at preparing it and took FOREVER.
Btw, I chose Cookie Dough Drizzle from their Tasty Creations menu!
Told you I like doughey stuff.

03. Ramen Play. I've never tried ramen before prior to this. For those of you who know me, you'll know it's cause I can't stand the smell of pork. BUT, this time round.. I DECIDED TO BE BRAVE :D
Ordered D4, cause spicy = good. Plus I was craving for my KinKin Chilli Panmee at that time..
Spot the map! Was trying to find my way from ChinaTown Point back to the hotel.
My verdict: I don't get why people go gaga over ramen. It tastes like.. Normal noodles. Maggi noodles. Instant noodles. Eww. Not forgetting it's so porky!
K I'm biased, sorry.

04. Old Chang Kee.
Oh why why why don't we have it here in KL. Everything over at Old Chang Kee is deep-fried and unhealthy, but really, who cares?! It's so convenient and cheap and doesn't taste bad! I especially like the fried sotong/squid and cheese-filled sausages.. Ugh SO GOOD. *crave*
Those snacks served me well by keeping my tummy happy whenever I was walking from Point A to Point B. *double crave*

05. Wild Honey.
Apparently my friend and I were lucky cause it's normally jam-packed with people?

Stephenie's. Yez her name is spelt like that.
FYI, in case you have yet to read my 50 Random Facts about me post, I hate runny yolks. Actually, I don't like egg yolks at all. 

But again, I told myself that this trip to Singapore is one that will make me a stronger and better person (wtf), and that I shall conquer my fear of runny yolks. Or just egg yolks in general. As I did with pork at Ramen Play.

Hot chocolate with a hugeass marshmallow.
With the friend.

Some camwhore pics huehuehue:

My #ootd that day!

Don't have that many photos from this trip. Cause I feel damn awkward trying to take selfies all the time lol. People just stare and stare and stare.. Maybe next time I shall just bring my tripod and self-time all the pictures.
