On the way home on Friday, Jmin and I were discussing whether I would like to accompany Jmin to Marina Barrage for a photowalk (let’s put it that way). Faizal was unconvinced that I should go. In the end, after I did some research and found out that Marina Barrage has wireless, I decided to go. In case you were wondering why I need wireless, it’s because of module bidding. )*@&#()*@&*
Woke up at 6am on Saturday (9 Jan 10), left the house at 6.45am and took bus service 72. On the way, there was this old man who boarded the bus, and then when he wanted to alight, the bus captain (this driver who was featured in many SBS Transit posters) guided him to the front door exit, and then (you won’t believe it), helped the old man cross the road. WOW. He held on his arm, and then watched out for vehicles and all. It was until the old man sat on the opposite bus stop seat then he cross back and sat down on one of the seats before he came back to the bus and continued the journey. 🙂 Really heart warming scene.
Waited for Jmin for a while, before she reached and then we took a cab down to Marina Barrage. Luckily for us, the driver knew how to go to Marina Barrage (took the KPE) and we reached within 30 minutes.
(Funny part) Both of us went to the highest level at Marina Barrage and started taking pictures of the place since it was empty and quiet. What happened was, we noticed another guy at the opposite end of the place taking his camera out and then setting up the tripod.
What we didn’t notice was that that guy was actually boss. hahaha. So funny.
Faizal joined us afterwards after he woke up and Melvin told us through msn that his spirit will be flying towards us and so we felt his spirit. haha
Anyway, the 4 of us were pretty excited when they announced that they will be opening the floodgates in “5 minutes” but we waited for about 15 minutes and nothing happened -.-! Disappointing. But the sun was so good that I didn’t feel upset at all!
Pictures that I took that I like!
Afterwards, we went to Marina Square for our lunch, and Faizal fetched Jmin and I back to Hougang where I rushed off to bowling with Jessie, her bf and Huzz.
Didn’t take pics there, but I scored the most CMI score ever (44). However, by the end of the game I realised what I was doing wrong and now I know how to bowl! Must go often. haha. It’s something that I like but I can’t do well, so I want to do well! 🙂
I conclude that my digital cam is good for outdoor/landscape shots but not indoor. But I must learn how to control the settings well.
Had so much fun this holiday. Thanks to all who made it happen (especially Huzz 🙂 and all at Elveslab).
School starts tomorrow. Hope I’ll get the last module through appeal.
