Wandering along the Streets of Singapore
Some of my companions and I woke up early so we can drop by at China Town and Sim Lim Mall first before we go to the Universal Studios Singapore that day. We’ll just meet the rest of our friends at Vivo City afterwards. From our hotel, we walked to Geylang Station and rode a train going to China Town. We arrived at China Town past 9:00 AM but the stalls were not yet open.
Because it wasn’t open yet, we decided to go to Clarke Quay. We walked to get there and did some sight seeing as well. It was around 9:45 AM when we arrived at Clarke Quay and same goes with China Town, it wasn’t open yet. There’s a river cruise at Clarke Quay. Pretty romantic to cruise along the river with the special someone, huh…!
Clarke Quay is very alive during at night. It just happened were all dead-tired last night so we weren’t able to visit this place. Moving on, it was past 10:00 AM so we’ve decided to go to Sim Lim Square to buy some electronic devices. From Clarke Quay station we rode the transit going to Bugis station.
From Bugis station, we looked for Rochor Road where the Sim Lim Square is. Unfortunately, we got lost. We thought that the street were walking to is correct. And I found this street, Manila St.
Because we don’t have much time figuring out the map that we have, we asked a local how to get to the Sim Lim Square and he taught us the direction.
As soon as we arrived at the complex, we look for the Song Brothers Store. It is a store where my companion’s brother told her where to buy the things that he asked to. The complex is full of electronic devices. They have cameras, mobile phones, laptops and computers, and so forth… I left my companion at the Song Brothers and I roamed around to look for external hard drive. And I found one, I bought one for myself. I bought a Seagate 500 GB external hard drive for SG $90. Good buy, isn’t it.
After everything has been settled, we headed to Vivo City where the rest of our companions are already there waiting for us.
From Sim Lim Square, we walked for 10 minutes going to Bugis Station. We rode a train going to Harbour Front. When we got there, we went inside the Vivo City to check where our friends are. Then, we’re off to Universal Studios!
