TCC @ Marina Bay Sand

K, a friend i got to know from blogging, but now, no longer active in blogging, was back in Penang to visit her parents, before going back to UK (she's now residing in UK).  She was in Singapore from 28th July to 31st July.  I did not meetup with her on 28th July.  At first i was telling her, i meet her on 30th July (Sat), but then something crops up, i have to attend to a funeral on Friday morning, and then the rest of the day, i will be available. She's using her UK line and can only be contactable if she could find wifi. As she's here with her 4 year old daughter, she could not go many places.  On 30th July, she went Gardens by the Bay, i manged to arrange the timing and where to meet.

After we met, my first thought when talking to her daughter is using english.  K told me she taught her daughter to speak mandarin.  The daughter speaks english with her daddy and mandarin with her.  So all the while, we spoke in mandarin.  We walk around for a while, then we proceed to Children's Garden (heard her mention she brings her daughter there earlier on, this is the 2nd time in the day, she going there) where her daughter  play and we sat there chit chatting.  

After sometimes, there's an announcements asking the kids to get off the play area as they needs to do some cleaning. After cleaning up for her daughter, we proceed to Marina Bay Sands as K needs to go to 7-11 to get a Singapore number SIM card as she mention that her hubby has been looking for her and it will be earlier for her hubby to contact her if she has a Singapore number and need not look around for wifi to get connected.

While waiting at the traffic light to cross over to Marina Bay Sands, i was surprise that her daughter grab my hand and holds on to my hand while crossing the road. As earlier on, she pulls a long face and ignore me when i talk to her.  Her mum ask her to call me but she also ignore it.  As this is the first time i meet K daughter, i did not know what to get her, so i gave her an ang pao, she even throw it on the floor. So when she sudden grab my hand, i was surprise and even play with me after crossing the road. 

After getting the SIM card, we went looking for ice-cream as her daughter loves ice cream.

  1. Its good that you were able to meet up with your friend K. Sometimes, kids need some time to access or get to warm up to a new person. At the end of the day, I think she likes you. He he.

  2. The drinks are cheap, dollar to ringgit! At such coffee places here, nothing is less than RM10...and that includes Starbucks. I don't bother going, no money. :(
