Before checking out of the hotel today, I went across the street to the hawker centre at Parkway Parade for brunch.
Yes...this cost SD$2!! So about AUD$1.60!! Lots of chunky pieces of carrot cake, with fried egg through it. I enjoyed sitting there (in the sweltering heat!) watching the stall owner frying it up for me on the spot. The carrot cake comes in a large manufactured roll - much like way you can buy large rolls of dog food.
I took a taxi straight to my Aunty's place where she was babysitting her grandson, Lucas. I gave him his presents and he loved tearing off the wrapping paper.
When Lucas was down for a nap, I went across the street to the shopping complet - Lot 1.
I've been looking forward to yong tau foo all week! No, wait - all year! Love it!
I met up with David in the afternoon and we visited a few homewares stores. It was difficult trying not to get carried away with all the beautiful furniture and knick knacks.
We finally tore ourselves away from the stores, met up with David's friends and went to dinner in the food court.
I really didn't know what I felt like. I thought at first I had caught a head cold from sitting underneath an airconditioner vent for a few hours yesterday, but with a sore throat I fear that I am catching a cold or flu. Perhaps it's a good thing...I won't overeat myself silly!
