Continued from previous journey, Alvin and I were at Bugis and we took the cab to go to check-in at our sponsored hotel and that is the Link Hotel. I actually saw this Link Hotel two years back when I was having my dinner at Tiong Bahru and now get a chance to stay in it.
The taxi driver didn’t really know his way around, luckily I still remember it’s near a market and we arrived after some turn. He did give me a discount afterall. The hotel is a 4 story heritage-look building with a bridge in the middle link to blocks, so I guess it’s where there name came from.
Checked in the hotel and didn’t find any Nuffnang people hanging around in the lobby. The hotel girl told me that they were here but actually they were still on the bus. Drop our luggage in the hotel room, checked some email in the net and we went out for a walk. The room is quite small by the way but it’s nice for two of us and the best is that there’s free Internet connection in the room via LAN.
We didn’t want to take the cab and we went to look for the nearest MRT. One thing is bad about the hotel is that it’s not near to the MRT station. The nearest MRT station is 10-15 minutes walk away and that is the Outram Park station. Since we got plenty of time, so we went walking.
I actually got no idea where to go. Alvin didn’t know the way around so I was his guide most of the time because I know a little bit about Singapore. After some thinking, we bought tickets to Harbour Front station which is only one stop away and the place lies Vivo City, one of the biggest shopping mall in Singapore.
It was just window shopping. Didn’t buy anything, found a very cool shirt but didn’t buy. Regreted.
Spent like 2 hours there, took lots of photograph and explored the whole mall. A place that is very happenings and I like happening place. It’s so unlike mall in Penang. Malls in Penang are so quiet on the weekday. Boring.
We then took the train back to the hotel again, thought that it was late and we walked fast. But actually we were still early because when we were going back, the Malaysian bloggers has just only arrived at the hotel. =)
