I think I am getting into the last post of my Singapore trip, should be saying that this is the last part of my one day Singapore tour and Orchard Rd was my last stop. We skipped and ran away from Royal Selangor Gallery from the Nuffnang tour and came here by ourselves via the MRT, it’s was just a few stop away, pretty fast.
One thing I got to say that my legs were really tired at that time, had been walking whole day already and it’s evening.
The Orchard Road station was really very crowded with people and this was my first time getting off at that. The times before that I went there few years back were by cab. Somehow, we still have to queue up again at the MRT station to get S$1 refund from the ticket.
I was just so excited about Orchard Rd, especially ION @ Orchard, the main reason I went there. I wanted to see how beautiful the building is.
Look at the LED bar. Pretty isn’t it?
The MRT station is just right below ION and the first thing I saw was ION! It’s so cool, with all the lights and all those huge designers’ label made me saliva drop and it’s felt so not-Singapore, perhaps Tokyo?
I was so amaze and salute to the developer. Before that I thought Pavilion in Kuala Lumpur was cool, but now, I can’t think about that already.
I can’t afford branded, designers’ label but I so like to look at them.
The ION is so round, I like also!
And they got a huge curve LCD screen outside, showing news, weather, info and stuff, just like a small part of Times Square and Tokyo. I think Malaysia don’t have big screens and with sound. There’s big ad screen, but mostly no sound, that’s not cool.
Alvin and I spent quite a lot of time out there “Wah, wah, wah” which made us don’t really have many time to walk around inside, and really we just walked a little and that’s when my brother called me to meet him at Cineleisure. Fast window shopped the first and second floor, then we started walking to Cineleisure, it’s like 10 minutes apart. Not far.
Their Cineleisure and ours Cineleisure at Damansara is also no fight, so crowded, so happenings and like the LED tickers out there.
Legs were tired and was looking for place to seat, then I found the cinema and there’s chair. =D I was like so hungry and didn’t feel like exploring anymore, moreover I’ve went there before, once, 2 years ago, where I was among the first getting the first release of iPod touch.
They came and we had our dinner at Sakae Teppanyaki, delicious and good. Again, Malaysia has it or not?
After dinner, daddy thought of going back to the hotel but I insisted to walk for a little while and to visit Uniqlo in ION. It’s part of my itinerary and I wanted to check out this Japanese store for a long time already. Daddy didn’t feel walking anymore so he found a pub in front Wisma Atria and he got his alcohol.
Walked back to ION and went shopping at Uniqlo and a few stores. Woot! I bought a couple of nice tee at there. Shopping does take away my tiredness. Maybe it’s my first time going to ION, the place inside is like a maze, most of the shops are underground, few floors down. Upper floor would be all those branded and designers’ label.
Me, brother, daddy, mommy. =)
After shopping and getting late, we went to find my dad at the pub. Interesting was, I saw a she-man dancing and lip-syncing with the live band playing. Woo.
Went to Lucky Plaza and took the cab back to hotel.
Next stop? No more. It’s going back home on the next day.
again, thanks to alvin yang for the photos.
