Happy Birthday Singapore!!!!!
Yesterday I was at Esplanade doing OT for the NDP Preview, from 11am till 11pm. That was the actual contract time stated we must perform 12 hour ad-hoc assignment, but in fact we reached Esplanade about 12:45pm due to the raining weather and we sign off at about 10:40pm due to the crowd managed to clear off early.
Dun have much chance to watch the NDP Preview cos' my duty there is to patrol, not to watch the performance. Furthermore there are so many spectators gathering around the Waterfront thus blocking my view somehow or another. BTW, Waterfront is referring the the whole stretch along the sea, whereby you can sit and enjoy the sea breeze on the seats. It has been quite some time since I last went to Esplanade. In the past I used to go there quite often. The last time I was there was last year where I did my OT there. Anyone still remember my post where I mentioned about Naadia Chan when she was here for her concert? Yeah, now I was there again I realised that there are a few changes; the Atrium was no longer there... You know the performance stage just outside Harry'O bar? Every weekend there will be free performances, either live band or whatsoever.
Yeah? Now it was just a green patch of grass.
There is also another place for food-eaters, Makansutra. I didn't went in to take a closer look. From far I guess it should be a nice place to eat there. Humm... I think can take my dear dear there someday, together with little momo...
So many crowd there last nite... Saw some interesting stuffs....
When the cannon gun was fired, I saw one little girl who was sitting together with her parents and maybe her mum's friends, she suddenly was screaming so loudly. I guess it was the sudden loud "bang" that caught her unexpectedly. Her mum gotta go carry her away, to somewhere safe for her. The girl was like about 7 yrs old or so. Maybe older or younger, I dunno. And I can oso saw there are other younger children than her who obviously didn't get affected by the cannon bang. So I think it all depends on individual.
I this time got the chance to watch the fireworks at close range. Not only it was displayed at Esplanade itself, there are also a part of the fireworks displayed at one of the tower, if I'm not mistaken or remember wrongly, it was on top of Hitachi tower..... Can't remember the name if the tower now... "blush blush"
Lately momo got a new hobby... She loves to drink from packet drinks with straw. My mum gave her taste it once and then from that time onwards momo will always whine to drink it again. Many times after we finished drinking and throw the empty packet in the bin, momo saw it and she will crawl to the bin and pick it up. OMG!!!
So now in order not to let her search from the bin again more, I tell my mum to satisfy her desires by giving her a packet to drink too.
Last Thursday we went to Manhattan Fish Market. I missed the garlic butter mussels. The butter gravy is so nice. Yum yum....
