Tour around Singapore for NN Awards Day 2
Nuffnang Asia Pacific blogging awards
gave more than what is expected during the 1st day
with a good hotel for us..
lots of good food..
and of course the awesomeness of being
in the midst of 400 other bloggers
you can refer to this post
well the excitement didn't stop there!
as Nuffnang planned a whole day trip
for the 2nd day we were in Singapore
The day started off at 8am
as we jumped into 4 separate buses
as there were so many of us
and couldn't crowd in 1 location all at once
we were divided into 4 groups
to tour all the same destinations at different destinations at a time
so as for my Group
which is Group B..
we headed off to the 1st place which is:
The Chinatown heritage Centre
it exhibits all the Chinese ways of living
in the earlier years of Singapore
(clockwise from top)
A Prostitutes room
A Chinese kitchen
Chinese local dishes
Chinese barang barang
so as we finished the Chinese Heritage Centre
we started walking towards the URA Centre
but as we were walking
we had typical distractions
Bloggers looking in awe
and of course!
Bloggers being Bloggers
we reached the URA Centre
The URA Centre shows the development of Singapore
in its buildings and architecture
The reception counter
The architecture of Singapore
Godzilla's on the loose!
I hold Singapore on the palm of my hands!
Bloggers resting after the camwhore sessions
Malaysian & Singaporean bloggers with the love shaped arch thingi
somehow this looks...
simply AWESOME !!!
we headed over for lunch at the food court
and headed to the
MINT Museum of Toys
This is one of the places i love the most from the tour!
seriously this Museum is not the typical museum you see
as the collection is some things you wont see in other museums
as the toys are backdated till the 1900s
one toy could fetch up to $20,000
or even more for the bigger ones
the best part is..
This is only 1/10 of the actual toys collected by the owner
as its mostly kept in the warehouse
so if u do visit singapore
do visit this place
as the collections keep on changing every season
and you wont be bored of it!

Slow down boy!

we then headed to the opposite of MINT museum
which is the historical hotel of singapore
and its really beautiful by the inside and outside
so as we were exploring the hotel
Modeling & Photoshooting
well most of em were the girls trying to take shots with beautiful scenaries

we headed off to
The Singapore Royal Selangor Pewter Museum
as you realise
"Royal Selangor" is actually the Malaysian Trademark
but since Singapore was part of Malaysia last time
there is still Singapore "Royal Selangor"
in this part of the trip
we were divided into two groups
we were able to create our own pewter bowl
with our own engravings inside
that is so cool!
you should try it if you hadn't!
Us at work
Our pewter Bowls
the items we got from Royal Selangor =)
we headed outside of Royal Selangor
as we were waiting for the other group to make their pewter bowls
and we started doing jumps and stunts
and falls =X
Me and Jacquelyn
Triple Layer! =.=
we headed off to the Singapore Flyer
after the other group has done their bowls
as you know
the Singapore Flyer is now the world's largest observation wheel
we were able to go on a 30 minute ride on the flyer
and we had great views of:
Jackie's sexay pants! Wootz!
The Singapore flyer cabin can also be rented for a dining experience
*especially for the rich & romantic people*
our next stop was:
it is a durian shaped building
used for performances and shows
its awesome architecture makes you go WOW
but in the end..
we just started taking random pics again...

we walked over to the Merlion Park
as it was only like 5 minutes away
as you know..
The Merlion is the symbol for Singapore
Group pic at the Merlion
1000 hand buddha with the merlion
we then headed off to
Bugis & Orchard road for shopping
in the end
which spells "EMO"
hahaa stupid but yeah =)
the girls then continued their shopping for clothes
while the guys went shopping for cheap alcohol =)
we then headed back to the hotel after that
and we had our long chats
ghost stories and so on
