Lost a book, lost our way and got a bump. But these don't stop the dodos from having fun.
[The "dodos" is a nickname we use since secondary school. Back in the #IRC days, I used a pseudonym "CuteDodo" and it got stuck with me since then.]
They said when life throws lemons at you, you make lemonade out of them. And that's exactly what happened yesterday. Originally we plan to have a swim and spend the rest of the sunshine day around Punggol Waterway viewing sunset with a beer on hand, however we decided to go with the flow instead.
CJ came to pick up us. By 3 p.m. we were three hungry souls en route to Changi City Point for our late lunch. On the way there, we missed a turn, being a Smart Alec I suggested making an illegal U-turn - it was a bad move as I had forgotten my dear friend had not driven for a year, naturally, we mount the curb scratching the rental car in the process.
We felt much happier after lunch.
We were also very glad that Spiderman was making his tour around the Frasers Centrepoint Malls and we were honoured to be able to attend his meet & greet session at Changi City Point. My friend was very excited to get up close and personal and she was very excited to spot the obvious bulge of my favorite superhero. O.o|ll (Speechless much)
Next stop, onward to a temple in Tanjong Pager. We missed our exit from PIE, so we decided to turn into Toa Payoh and drove to Lian Shan Shuang Lin Temple instead. Yesterday, being a full moon, we went to pray to Yue Lao
or 月下老人 - the god of marriage and love, with a heart full of hope that he would help bring us closer to our future other half.
With our love life entrusted onto the hands of the cupid of the east, we drove down south to the Asia's Favorite Playground - the island of Sentosa. Celebrating her 40th birthday this year, Sentosa has managed to revamp and remake herself every several years to come out with new attractions and entertainment.
We found a quiet pizza bistro tucked at a corner of Siloso Beach right now to Shangri-La's Rasa Sentosa Resort. Our meal of Caoona, Heinken and seafood pizza filled with salmon, mussels and prawn was more than $50 so it entitled us to complimentary parking at Rasa Sentosa Resort.
It's been a long time since I had the chance to relax by the artificial beach of Siloso. At sunset, the sky turned into a romantic purple stretch. How I wish Yue Lao had granted my wish already!
It was at this romantic moment that we realised that we had left our book at the eatery where we had our lunch.
Determined to end the night on a sweet note, we headed west to The Daily Scoop at Clement Arcade for our dessert.
Life is full of twists and surprises. After we had parked along Sunset Way. the car key was stuck to our rented car. Our twist and turn made no valid, after 10 minutes of failed attempt, our car was auto-locked. Honestly we felt really lost.
Then amazingly we tried one more time and we managed to retrieve the keys and reverse the auto-locked. Dessert was extremely sweeter after the whole episode. We rewarded ourselves with two scoops of ice-cream each. My choice was Lychee Martini and Salty Mr Brown.
Tired but satisfied, we drove eastwards for a restful night.
