This October seems an unusually busy month for me. It is a month of activities, of celebration and feasting!
At last, after about 18 months of hard work and juggling between work and studies, DS has completed his studies on Oct 11. Well done, my dear! To celebrate this important milestone, we had a number of activities arranged immediately as well as the following few days after DS’ final paper.
When there is celebration, there is fun and makan (a Malay word for food), agree? This is what we ate right after his exam. What a “sinful” treat huh!
Delicious Hokkien noodles with fresh oysters, BBQ stingray and black pepper crab @ Kim’s Place, Joo Chiat. Yummy, yummy!
We also indulged in a movie “marathon” which we had not done for a long time. We love watching movies (original DVDs!) in the comfort of our home, and away from the crowds in the cinemas! In the cinema, you can have popcorns, hotdogs and drinks but see, this is what we had…..
Strawberries and black Korean grapes, pizza and Zinfandel!
On another day, we headed down to Changi beach early in the morning while it was still dark, to see the sunrise! It is another activity that we would do if DS had more free time. But we were not so lucky that morning because it was very cloudy and the sun was covered by clouds.
Well, that did not dampen our excitement though. We still had a great time strolling by the beach and listening to the waves. It is so nice to be away from the hustle and bustle of a crowded city, and enjoy some nice moments and the lovely nature in this part of Singapore!
We also took this opportunity to explore Changi Village a little and then filled our stomachs with a buffet breakfast at Changi Village Hotel. The food was nice and we liked the quiet ambience of the cafe, and the friendly service by the cafe staff.
Changi Point Jetty, where people take these boats to the nearby Pulau Tekong.
