Yesterday, one of my university buddies, Sandra texted me to meet out. She is in Singapore for a five day conference which started on Tuesday till Friday, and I guess, she chose to extended her stay until Sunday.
She stays in Ritz Carlton Millenia Hotel, which is located near Esplanade or City Hall MRT station. While I live in Commonwealth area. I searched using gothere.sg, and found out that I need around 40 minutes to go there by MRT and bus. It was 8 pm. So I was thinking better to stop at City Hall MRT station rather than using bus from Outram MRT station. I swiftly changed my clothes and left to Commonwealth MRT station.
I have the street directory book with me, it’s Iwan’s btw. I try to remember the way to reach her hotel. I asked her to meet on somewhere else but she sounded hesitate, most likely either she doesn’t know how to get there or she doesn’t have EZ Link card with her. Anyway, I decided to meet her in her hotel lobby.
I’ll save the details how I met her for later, because I want to share the story about her. 🙂
We decided to go to Orchard by bus. She told me that she’s looking for some light meals. Well, I’ve just reach Singapore by two weeks too. I didn’t know where to go too, especially around Orchard where most of the buildings are malls. Maybe there are some food court but by the time we reached there it’s 930pm, so most of the malls were starting to close.
Anyhow, we decided to have McD – very global right haha. I ordered apple pie and she ordered shaka shaka chicken, both of us have green tea for drinks.
We sat there and chatted lots of things. Her work, my new adventure, our university time, our friends, current situations, until we forgot how long we were there. She didn’t change much from what I know, I don’t know how she sees me though. 🙂
Until the night is getting late and she told me that she still has short brief for tomorrow morning schedule at her hotel on 11pm. So, we decided to go back to our places.
