Hello, this is Pooh-san.
It’s the second day of my Singapore travelogue.
Breakfast at TOAST BOX
For breakfast, I had kaya toast at TOAST BOX inside Funan Mall.
It’s incredibly delicious to dip the bread into a mixture of raw egg, sweet-salty soy sauce-like seasoning, and pepper.
The coffee is quite sweet, but surprisingly, it complements the toast well.
Exploring Orchard Road
Afterward, I headed to Orchard Road.
I revisited my previous workplace in Singapore after a few years, thanks to the pandemic. It was great to catch up with everyone and see them doing well.
I continued exploring by strolling around Takashimaya at Orchard.
Next to TWG, known for its tea, there was a similar coffee shop called Bach Coffee.
Apparently, it’s quite popular, and they have multiple branches all over Singapore.
The prices were quite high, but I managed to try a cup since they offered takeout.
Exploring Raffles Place
I hopped on the MRT and wandered around Raffles Place.
It’s Singapore’s financial district and the hub of business.
Although there are many high-rise buildings, the abundance of greenery is a distinctive feature of Singapore’s landscape.
Even in the heart of the business district, you can still find moments of relaxation. I personally love the sophisticated cityscape here.
Just a 5-minute walk from Raffles Place is the Marina Bay area.
I revisited the Merlion and leisurely strolled around the Bay area.
Before I knew it, it was evening, and Marina Bay Sands was preparing for its daily fountain show.
Dinner at SUPER LOCO CUSTOMS HOUSE
For dinner, I enjoyed Mexican cuisine at SUPER LOCO CUSTOMS HOUSE near Fullerton Bay Hotel.
Considering the location, the prices were reasonable, and the food was incredibly delicious.
Since it was fully booked that day as well, I recommend making a reservation in advance. You can easily do it through their website, so no need to call.
Having dinner while feeling the evening breeze at Marina Bay was fantastic.
Exploring Clarke Quay
After the meal, I explored Clarke Quay.
There are numerous dining establishments along the Singapore River, and Clarke Quay, in particular, is a lively area.
With its abundance of bars, clubs, izakayas, cafes, and more, the atmosphere was lively and vibrant.
The illuminated surroundings added to the beauty, making it perfect for an evening stroll.
Impressions of Day 2
The best part of the second day was being able to meet the people who took care of me in Singapore.
Since it had been a while due to the pandemic, I had a lot of conversations and had a great time.
This day involved a lot of walking through the city center, but with the distinctive buildings and the incorporation of greenery in the landscape, I thoroughly enjoyed the stroll without getting tired.
The scenery of the Bay area still gives me a boost of excitement. It’s incredibly cool.
I once again felt the desire to visit this area over and over.
To be continued on Day 3.
