Sightseeing in our very own country

Posted by Dawn at Saturday, May 01, 2010
Today, I felt like we were tourists as we went to take the new Circle MRT line from Dhoby Ghaut to Promenade. Both Caleb and Danielle love taking the train as they seemed so occupied in staring at the people in the train and those coming in and going out.


Here's Danielle in her neat and tidy hair cut which looked really sweet. Too sweet for my liking though.


And there's Caleb making all sorts of expressions with his face.Strange...



Frankly speaking, one of my favourite past time in the train is also to stare at people in the train as there's really all sorts of people in there and I always look at them individually and start to think what kind of occupation are they in just by their looks and dressing.

Anyway, in the Circle line train, we actually made our way to the end where we could see the train tracks in the tunnel. Felt like I was in a movie where the train was stalled and we are facing some sort of terrorist attack.



We dropped off at the Promenade Station which was near Suntec City. Then, we walked over to the Marina Bay Sands resort and the newly opened helix bridge.





There were platforms along the bridge where you can view the Singapore skyline.


We also walked into the Marina Bay Sands Resort where there was a casino. It was crowded as many were like us, just checking the place out. It was especially difficult since we had two kids in two prams.


We then made our way to Esplanade where we had our dinner at Gluttons Bay, a hawker centre at Esplanade.

After a quick dinner, we watched live outdoor performances and walked over to the Merlion as Caleb wanted to take a look at it!

The view was stunning.


We walked alot but it was really all worth it as the kids had fun staring at the merlion and running about.



By the time we reached home, it was already about 1030pm. So exhausted since we were out for almost 5 hours. Think the kids seemed more awake than me.


Anyway, we had a great time being tourists of our own country!
