obviously not straight to the left Mark

We woke up lazyly saturday afternoon (feeling couldn’t open my eyes). Breakfast with French Croisant from the cafe at 1st floor and rushed to MRT. It was not to busy in the central compare what we do in every Saturday (shopping..shopping and shopping).

Grabbed the transport map from bookshop cross the road (same building with Tourist Information Centre). We took Dhoby Ghaut, got off in City Hall to East West Line (green line MRT) mainly to East Coast and end in Changi Airport. We off in Paya Lebar Sta which very nice concrete arch and airee. In midday we managed walk to Geylang and Katong area where we intent to looking for apartment. Its nice area, most of chinese people with luxury apartment for selling (price can be $350K or around £110K). Upps out of budget !

Cross the underpass (underground road) we reached East Coast. Had re-fluid then hire bike for $5 per hour each. Cycling along well paved track with skatter and jogger. People camping in the shore, swimming, fishing, canoeing, wind surfing. Fantastic ! Spent next hour with coconut drink and BBQ chicken wing as lunch pack.Back to central and walking along the river through Elgin Bridge to Boat Quay. Had great dinner with river view. Menu : S’pore chicken satay with peanut sauce and shallot, cuttlefish deep fried with veg inside, seafood special (everything from sea) and two pint Tiger beer !

The Boat Quay full of seafood reastaurant which quite expensive. It cost $96 or about 30 quid but as a note there is no wine or desert. But food really nice though !

PS : you will find adventures menu like frogs and shark’s fin here !
