crossing the border
Somehow its like a family tradition for me & wifey. Everytime she's pregnant , we;ll end up in singapore . Either it is for leisure or business ie exams ! Dzaeffran was in his 7th month when we explored Singapore last year. Again this year , for his adik.. wifey had her FRCR part 1 exams in NUS.
We departed for KL at about 8am from One Utama. Yup , you heard me right directly from One Utama to Singapore. The bus was really spacious , a double decker with a lounge on the lower deck. They served us food and drinks ; felt like being in an airplane. I would certainly recommend this bus if you want comfortable travel. Of course , it is a bit dear lah...
We arrived in Habourfront , Singapore at 1pm. As how it is in KL , it rained heavily and of course we were stuck for a while. I booked ourselves a cheap hotel situated in GEYLANG. Yup.. you heard me right ! That was the only place where rooms were available. The ones near town like in Bugis or little India were fully booked. It did not help when i booked it like 2 days ago !! Hahahaha... I mean , there are a lot of rooms for the 4 and 5 star hotels but because of budget ; I resorted to this place.
And of course.. the area was dodgy even at daylight. Wifey was surprised after we arrived in our room , when i mentioned the girls waiting around the corridor along the shops we were walking through , were not our normal salesgirl. It made sense when she remembered an old chinese man was bargaining with a lady outside a massage spa , and she was wondering what product was this girl selling.. Hello !!!!... hahahaha..
" Thirty dollars.. massa and sawe only.... "
She thought the women said .. takda masa... when it was "MASSAGE" in a very pelat way..
studyin b4 the exam
Anyway , we did not go anywhere after an early dinner , me a bit tired and wifey needing to make her last minute study. We went to NUS early in the morning and by late afternoon , we were back in the bus on our way home. Obviously , we missed baby Dzaeff so much that our conversation in the luxurious bus revolved about what he would be doing at that time !!!!
