From Bencoolen To Orchard Road By Foot

The third day in Singapore was spent relaxing in the hotel room. No early morning calls, no appointments... just a restful sleep at our own pace and time. When it was time for our lunch, we went to the food court again and tried out their different type of food.  We spent the whole day in the hotel room... I remember we spent some hours logging in to Air Asia's promotion tickets but ended up buying not-cheap tickets....

When it was almost evening, we prepared ourselves to go for dinner... from Ibis Hotel, we have to walk quite a distance to Holiday Inn for our dinner.....
Feeling refreshed after a day's rest in the hotel...
The view from our hotel.. 
and our walking journey began to start....
we passed by this beautiful building...
and it was actually School Of Art in Singapore...
Dance is Music Made Visible,.... true?
We also passed by Cathay...  looks like an antique building, right?
Since we are here, we might as well go in and have a look, right?
Before we do, let's take a picture first.....
More or less, it is sort of a "breather" for me...
The walk from Bencoolen to Orchard Road is not near...
Nevertheless, we prefer to walk than taking MRT....
Half hour walk is a norm for us now.. hahahaa...
That is our plan... to get some exercise before our buffet dinner!

  9. Claire, I can see the weather is good for a walk. I don't mind doing that too since it can burn up some calories.

  25. The building is very nice ah. I like that sort of exterior outlook. How's it inside? Well maintained? Btw, I love the idea of you guys walking instead of taking the MRT...30 minutes of walk is definitely a good habit! :) Easier to do that in Singapore than in KL due to security reason though...

  27. Good to walk instead of taking MRT. 30 mins walk still doable. At least it is during the evening, not so hot. The Cathay building looks very antique.
