Gardens By The Bay, Singapore 2015

IT WAS A HOT SUNNY DAY...!! We three ladies never thought of bringing our caps or hats thus our poor head and arms were being "skin-fried" by the blazing sun.  The two younger girls do not mind the sun too much, unlike me... I kept looking and scurrying around for sheltered area to avoid the sun ray!
Hidden beneath the Dome!
But there were a lot of pictures taken under the sun...
So that the pictures can come out clear and nice!
Managed to get a quickie pose too!
Always an amazing sight....
From the bridge, this is a beautiful layout....
Too bad my iP4 is not that "canggih!"
Couldn't really see what angle I was taking actually...
Just snap and go.... 
Turned out not too bad though...
*my version*
The SuperTrees!
Next time we must come during the night...
 The Supertrees come alive with a dazzling myriad of light displays bursting across the sky...
A skyway leading from one Supertree to another... 
Picture taken in 2013.....
And I am still "ahhhh-ing" in 2015!!
  *adoi*

Outing To Singapore Bayfront And Flyer

A ladies' day out to Singapore on our own using the Causeway Link....  for the first time we were on our own, parked our car at the Giant mall and waited for the CW bus no. 3 or 4.  Either one is fine.. they will take us over to the Jurong East Mall.  Alright... credit goes to my girl... she is the one who leads the way....

From Jurong East MRT, we bought our tickets and stopped at Bayfront after going through an interchange.  Well, sounds kind of complicated... but my girl knew what to do and we just tagged along with her.... Soon we reached the Garden By The Bay.... *clever girl*
 The "tunnel" leading to the Gardens....
 So colourful...
So Must stopped to "welfie" first....
Add more colours to the colourful....
 And some dancing stint as well......
Quick, quick... before people called us "Jakun!" here.... 
Very Impressed by the works of art here....
Familiar Sight?
And it's very light!
 Presenting....
THE SINGAPORE FLYER..
The world's largest Giant Observation Wheel.....

Our Dinner Set At Sutera Mall Foodcourt, Johor

From Malacca, it took us more than two hours drive to reach our place in Johor. By then both Aaron and I were quite tired.. not sure whether it was the food or the drive that made us very sleepy! Anyway, we reached safely, thank God and it was really good to see our small home again after a two weeks break or ten days in actual fact.....

It was a Friday evening and the causeway was quite jammed up, according to Andy.. by the time he reached home, it was almost 8pm... and naturally, our tummies were kind of "flattened" again... Very quickly, we drove out again, this time to Sutera mall area for our simple dinner..... 
We have been here before once but we didn't try this stall then... 
We ordered two sets of soup plus rice..
And it came with one plate of greens and one small bowl of steamed egg...
Not too bad.... the pricing was around RM8.50
Watercress... good for cooling down...
We ordered some fish ball varieties to go with our dinner..
And the Assam Laksa was not left out either....
The set cost RM6.50...
Sizing up the food....
And that was our dinner feast for the first night in JB.....

Along Historical Streets Of Malacca

AFTER our heavy lunch in Kocik Kitche, we took a walk around the vicinity despite the hot sun rays upon our poor heads.  We must sweat out our calories after our delicious Peranakan meal otherwise we we end up growing sideways again.... hahahaa.... 

Along the way, we took some pictures of the Heritage houses... we were simply impressed by them... they really take efforts to maintain the structures of these homes built during the Dutch and Portugese days....
Some residence for rent....
Even our friend is impressed.....
 The Blue Houses  (as I called them)
 Built in 1939
 Along the Jonker Street...
Yours truly cannot resist the hot from the pot Ondeh Ondeh...
The two houses side by side...
Landmark of Jonkers Street...
 
Never leave Malacca empty handed though....

St Giles The Gardens At Mid Valley, Kuala Lumpur

My girl and I went to the wrong hotel in Mid Valley... Instead of St Giles at The Gardens, we entered the Boulevard St Giles instead...both having the same name but different locations altogether.... yes, we were kind of "jakuns?"  My son had not arrived yet, he came up from JB whereas we took a bus down from Ipoh... so both of us were kind of waiting at the wrong lobby!

Anyway, all were made right when I approached the check in counter and made an enquiry... and he told us that it was not the same.. though by the same management but different hotel altogether...the staff there was so kind and friendly, he even "offered" us a bell boy to take all our luggage and led us to the right hotel at The Gardens.  So nice of the bell boy too, leading us all the way through the Mid Valley shopping mall with our luggage all in the trolley... Well, "sik joe la" after that....  hahahaa...

My son was caught in the jam and he came thirty minutes after we did... it was lunch time, what else to expect in the city center?   
And finally.... our hotel room!
The welcoming beds....
And the vast restroom....
 Then we proceed to Madam Kwan for our late lunch...
It was almost 4pm then!!
 Both of us could finished them all.... !
As for dinner at 9pm, we had a "Lighter Meal" at Nyonya Colors...
And we called it a night after that...

Our Peranakan Lunch At Kocik Kitchen, Malacca

We checked out from St Gildes Hotel Mid Valley around noon... no proper breakfast, each of us just gulped down a bun and off we went.  We wanted to leave 'space' for lunch at the historical town, Malacca!
Forgotten how long it has been since I last visited this state.....
Passing by the red row of shophouses....
Historical sights....
Christ Church....
Beautiful and striking... right in middle of the town and on the way to Jonkers Street...
After some minutes with the parking and searching for food...
we finally managed to get seated at this place called Kocik Kitchen!
Finally get to taste the Creamy Cendol!
Malacca style!
First time taking Ayam Ponteh....
I told my girl that I would do this one day...
She looked at me in disbelief...
Alright, I will take up the challenge!
Fish with Sambal...
Cute Otak Otak Balls...
Cincaluk Omelet...
Love this...!!!  
My favourite Vege!
We were so hungry that everything was finished to the brim....
What a Peranakan Lunch...
Love to come back again...
Hopefully not few years later... 
hahahaa...
Ok, as for the bill, it came to around RM100
