Shing Lee's Anniversary

Posted by Dawn at Thursday, July 22, 2010
Shing Lee is one of the leading educational publishers in Singapore and to celebrate their anniversary, they invited schools to join in their celebrations by inviting us to the Singapore flyer for some food and to sit in the flyer for free. I was asked to go and together with 2 more of my colleagues, we made our way there.

I went there without much expectations or excitement as I have been on the flyer before and found it rather boring because it was moving very very very sloooowly. I didnt mind going again since they needed Math teachers to go and it was the company that really matters. Moreover, I hardly have the chance to go out with Serene and Suhaila. It was an opportunity which I didnt mind grabbing.

All of us were rather skeptical as to whether they will start pressurising us to buy books from them during this whole probably we were 'trained' from our experiences in life that there is no such thing as a free lunch. There must be some sort of hidden agenda for bringing us down, treating us to buffet and giving us a free ride to the flyer which costs almost $30 per person (usual price). It must be too good to be true.

The door gift was rather cute. It was milk bottles. The idea is to thank us for 'adopting' them (the publisher) into their schools.

Anyway, in the end, there really wasnt any hidden agenda. They sincerely wanted us to join in their anniversary celebration. So right after our hi-tea buffet, we went for the ride in the flyer.

The last time I came, the casino resort was not constructed yet. So at least this time round, I saw more things. However, I was still bored and almost fell asleep during the ride.

After the ride, I met up with CT near the helix bridge before we headed to Marina Square for dinner. There was the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) sculpture there at Marina Bay.

We settled in a Myanmar restaurant, Inle in Marina Square for dinner. Because I had quite a lot during the buffet, I wanted to eat something light. So I had soup noodles which I regretted not because its not nice, but CT's fried noodles tasted so much better! Mine just tasted like I could cook that anytime at home.

We had fried gourd for appetisers. Quite interesting. Loved the special chilli sauce

And lastly we had Myanmar version of Ice Kachang

All in all, we were quite satisfied with the food. Only the service was a little tad slow. Costs us about $15 per person.
