Sapphire, Jewel Box

Mother's Day was a post night of showers (it was an almost with sied van dyl ;( ), and hence a cooling misty morning when I companied gran to church, and thereafter a vegeterian lunch before we headed out to Jewel box at Mount Faber. Originially intended for Hort Park (after Southern Ridges passerbying), but missing the turn landed us in Mount Faber. Even then I had to circle around and ascend it twice (thanks for changing the shock absorbers, dad) before we reached the coach carpark (cos I refused to valet for 5 heh) and climbed up.

Awesome possum view from the alfresco area, the architecture was equally amazing. The alfresco area seemed sprawling, and from where we perched ourselves, we had a elevated view of Sentosa and beyond. There was also an indoor glass box. They only served the buffet (and special Mothers day buffet brunch) but they made it special for us allowing us to have coffee there. Just as well cos there was space. Its a good place to go with good view sans the crowd..thanks for the lovely carnations (for gran!)

Headed to cello, then home to pick up the bikes (trio but all taken) and then from Macs to start of Changi Beach, before the lagoon put us off to dine instead at our River Valley zi char. Second time after till midnight (while the Man city vs QPR was going on), to Flyer/Kallang where an absolute of a gem of peaceful still waters lie. Love the reflection of the under-bridge, the smooth pavement of the F1 pits, the connector that leads to nowhere( at least, until the gps works). Dislike the smoggg, the endless traffic lights, the turning vs straight lanes, and gotta ditch the pedestrian mentality to battle the roads.
