F1 Race is on this September and it's going to get loud.  Booths are open along Orchard road for memorabilia. Posters are up along the city streets.  It's going to be a star studded 3-day event. Who are coming?  I see posters of Mariah Carey, Missy Elliot, Adam Lambert, Daughtry, Sean Kingston, Chippendales to name a few.

F1 is a sought after yearly event here in Singapore. A lot of tourists come during this time from different countries. This kind of event, as well as the recently held Youth Olympic Game last month, boosted Singapore's tourism industry.  Good work! Majulah Singapura! Onward Singapore!


How did my Sunday go? Let me tell you...

I woke up to a cold morning and it was raining. I had my shower and got dressed up for work. I wore my black hooded jacket just to protect me from the rain walking from home to the carpark. I went to Orchard to work then went out to meet someone at the Embassy. Walked back to Orchard. I decided to pass by Marks & Spencer for some goodies. Everytime i see and go to this shop i remember a dear pretty friend Stace who used to send us goodies from Marks & Spencer. I remember the peppermint tea!

Marks & Spencer
This bread shop in Ion sells yummy pastries. And again i'm not into sweet stuff but i love them. I walked around Ion and went to stay outside also to take some shots.
Sorry shot was out of focus.
It was intended for the bagels there.

This is their version of "dirty ice cream" as what they call it back home. Ice cream not serve in cones but on bread or wafer. Ice creams packed like rectangular and have to cut it to serve. Flavors are delicious. They don't melt easily even on a hot weather. Kurt's (my nephew) favorite as well.

After Ion i went back to office and went out late for Sunday mass. We decided to go Novena. Special mass was going on and a lot of devotees came. On this shot below devotees were actually on the other side of the highway already because even the carpark just outside the church was so crowded.
Umbrellas opened for it was raining as well that time.
After attending the mass. Me and cousins decided to have dinner at Kallang. I had hot plate beancurd and braised fish, hot tea and steamed rice. I was full. Thanking my Lord for the graces.
Hot plate beancurd.

I had a tiring day. Busy but it's good and bored like doing the same thing. I just can't wait to be home with my loved ones.

We went to a wet market and got these fresh for lunch. I just steamed them with little vinegar and salt. Arranged them on a plate and decorated with orchids around for some Balinese inspired presentation. :)

It was a terrible day.  The sun was blinding this morning and worst at noon time. My eyes can not take to much brightness. The awful heat gave me headache and hoping for no migraine day.  I really despise this kind of weather.  

Yesterday was better.  I remembered sitting on a bus stop while reading my book.  A school ground was just behind where i was.  Wind was blowing and i can smell the wet grass as the hot sun dried them up. It was sunny but gentle.  

This day i went to work in the afternoon and this how the sun was shining intensely.  I wanted to go walk along Orchard but then the heat ruined my day.  

Street towards Orchard.

I went across Tangs to get some  snacks and i got some frozen yoghurt with strawberry toppings.  I got this to just keep me cool.   When i got back to the off i added up some strawberry jam.  And thanks to my friend Dang for the shortbread and jam!

I hope tomorrow wont be as hot as today for surely i will get some gelatos!
