Day 2: Uniquely Singapore Tour

Merlion Park
A highlight photo

I wasn’t aware of planned itinerary for the day. I was hoping that Sentosa is part of it. They say, an hour trip to Sentosa is not enough, and going to Sentosa should be a whole day trip. I dropped Sentosa in my mind and concentrate on the road while the bus takes us to our destination.

Royal Selangor 03

My eyes are locked on the road thinking that this kind of facade might the year 2050 in the Philippines. That this kind of facade is impossible for corrupt politicians to take in action of. All of a sudden, Mica borrowed my camera and took a photo of me and pondered “You’re emo.” Oh yeah!!

Clark Quay Clark Quay!” says someone from the bus. Out of the blue, I realized that we just hit our 1st destination, Royal Selangor.

Royal Selangor 04Royal Selangor 15

Royal Selangor is an international manufacturer of high quality pewter and well known for crafting elegant tableware designs, jewelries, and gifts. Its original name was Selangor Pewter, but was changed to Royal Selangor to reflect its diverse product.

We made our own souvenir plate, purely made by hand. The feeling of being a blacksmith for an hour is one of a kind experience. We also received a certificate of Blacksmith for finishing a product.

I’m busy from the start, and gained success after finishing my product.

Singapore Flyer is our next stop. At far, the Flyer looks ordinary ferris wheel in Enchanted Kingdom. As we get nearer, I’m amazed by its exact size, it’s like a capsule that will transport you to other planet. Cocktails are supposed to be serve during our flying experience, but I think it’s a different package.

There are a lot of classical things inside the Chinatown Heritage Center. Holograms, old televisions, old table sets and other old things are there.

Walking inside the heritage center would make you feel that your great grandma and great grandpa souls are alive, right there beside you (Happy Halloween by the way).

Bloggers can’t stop taking pictures near the window. The lighting is very good.

Gosiengfiao Sisters
I’m in the wrong position, but models are really good (Ashley and Alodia).

Mint Toy Museum is Mica’s favorite itinerary. Listening attentively to Curator Richard, like she drunk a lot of coffee because of alertness.

Mint Shop 07

Few facts about the Mint Museum — Won the 2007 International Architecture Award. Camera flash is not allowed, this is to avoid shadows thus preserving the colors of the toys.

Mint Shop 18
There’s also a minibar and restaurant inside the Mint Museum.

Before the day ends, I bought SB600 flash for my Nikon. With Ming as our tour guide, we took a small walk from Esplanade to Merlion park.

    Hi Ada,

    You\’re pictures are really great. I like also your website like your friend Mica. You are so blessed that you were able to visit Singapore for absolutely free. I wish you another country that you can visit again for free.

    Are you still continuing your career as a nurse? I saw some pictures of some celebrities. Do you do freelance photographer?

    More power! I will keep on reading it.

    Hi ana! Thank you for dropping by at my blog. As far from now, I haven’t decided yet if nursing would still fit me as my profession.
    I’m not a freelance photog by the way, :P Photog is part of my past time. and those celebs shots are from certain events. :D

    Nice shots Ada! Glad you really had a lot of time to stroll Singapore. As for me, when I went there, we spent most of our time in Sentosa. Since we availed of a cheap flight from Tiger Airways (only 4,500 rountrip! but flight sked is arrival 8:30 pm tuesday and departure 9am thursday), we only have technically one day to stroll singapore.

    I hope to come back there soon. :mrgreen:
