When Malaysian blogger Ehon mentioned that he would be transiting at Singapore Changi Airport on his way home from Adelaide, I invited him to stay the night with us. I don't feel good that he had to sleep on the floor of the cold airport for a night.
Alas... on Wednesday night, I got the dates wrong and wasted the whole evening waiting for him with my family. I had left my cellphone at home and didn't have Ehon's number. So I had to go home and email the gang. Turned out Ehon would be arriving on Thursday night. Bummer.
Thursday night, after picking Ehon at the airport, we went to East Coast Lagoon (ECL!!!) Food Village for dinner. It is alfresco dining by the beach. We ordered Roti John, BBQ pork (Satay), Vermicelli with Peanut Gravy (Satay Beehoon), Oyster Omelette and Duck Rice.
There are several popular dishes at this food centre. If you don't know which stall is good, just watch out for the long queues. You can't go wrong when you see people queuing in front of a food stall in Singapore. ^-^
After dinner, we brought Ehon to see the Christmas Light-up, themed “A Fairytale Christmas” this year, at Orchard Road. The stretch of road is transformed into a bewitching Crystal Forest! There are dazzling lights in blue, red, gold and white.
Then Ehon got sick (because of the food?) so we had to go home. No going to Geylang (Red Light District) for the Chicken Parade. awwwww......... two nights in a row, I had to cancel 'call chicken'. We had an early night.
This morning we brought Ehon for a simple breakfast near our house. Jaymes sent Ehon to the airport while I quickly post this and then have to bring my mother-in-law to the doctor.
Thanks Ehon for the Haigh's chocolates! Have a wonderful vacation!
