We had our belated CNY celebration today – not by going house visiting though. We went cycling at East Coast! And spent time getting ourselves wet at the beach!
It was so fun, and something I had looked forward to since the week before. It is always nice to have a four-day work week.
Met L and Z at Parkway Parade for lunch at 2pm. We were all early! 🙂 We then made our way to East Coast Park. It was scorching hot but shiok to be nearly the only ones out on a weekday afternoon.
True enough, we had the beach nearly all to ourselves. Cycling was fuss-free and nowhere as stressful as the last time we were here. It was cheap too, $6 for 3 hours per person (extra 2 hours thrown in) with a free bottle of water!
We were not as gungho this time round (we had gone all the way to the Changi Beach park connector) and stopped just after the Bedok Jetty (which by the way, is under construction).
We sought relief from the heat by wetting our feet in the water, which eventually led to us wetting our feet, our pants, and our butts! The tide was coming in! But it was so fun! Suddenly, I felt young again, and only stopped short at not picking sea shells! Haha.
Took pictures, quite a couple. Will load it once I have all of them from everyone.
Then it was a leisurely ride to the food centre where we had coconut! Mine turned out to be the oldest; the flesh was too tough and I gladly exchanged it with Z 🙂
Got back to the rental station in good time and definitely not as exhausted as the last time. It started to rain a bit so we quickened our pace and headed for Waraku for dinner.
It was a satisfying meal, other than the fact that the wait staff were shouting Japanese welcome phrases everywhere. We were seated near the entrance so it was really loud! What irked me was the manner they shouted it. It sounded sluggish and they seemed to be making a joke out of it, by sprouting phrases unnecessarily. Oh well, it got rather amusing after a while.
Today must be a really good day, because even the bus journey was without much hiccups – both buses came on time, without much waiting and I was home by 8.20pm. 🙂
Now, why do all good things come to an end so quickly?
