Welcome to Singapore, Matthew
Day 1 Singapore tour
Upon arrival via the Singapore International Airport, Matthew
(U) is greeted by Wind, his friend residing in the island state. Matthew
(U) is famished and suggested to Wind to treat him to some local delicacies and the two of them headed to Newton Food Centre for sumptuous dinner.
Hawker Centres are easily the best places to enjoy food in Singapore as the variety is astounding and the prices are low. Newton Food Centre is no exception and offers an array of food selection from Chinese to Malay to Indian to European and fusion foods. Matthew
(U) and Wind reserved a table in the hawker centre and began their food orgy. Oyster omelet, Char-grilled Sting
topped with sambal chilli, Spicy black pepper crabs, Chicken rice, Char kway teow, Barbecued chicken wings. They ate so much that they almost could not walk!
The night was still young so Wind brought Matthew
(U) down to Orchard Road, the famous shopping belt in Singapore. Being a music lover himself, Wind brought Matthew
(U) to The Heerens Shops which housed the largest Britain's HMV music store in Southeast Asia. A whopping 3-storey full of music of different genre, Matthew
(U) was elated and immersed himself for hours in the world of music.
