Day 1 River Cruise

ok so i call this the zerodrome since it always happens a week before he comes. sleeplessness, fidgety, sudden happiness, sudden painfulness. bleahs.
met around 630am finally, and had a short breakfast before we went to the hotel. work sucks. especially that day.

we met again at lunch and after work, and passed by some lantern-making displays using recycled materials. i must say Singaporeans' creativity is rather awesome sometimes!
then there's an inner area with entries submitted by school teams
 and this one was made by HC! whee!

then after that we had dinner at a spanish restaurant where the food that he ordered supposedly tasted like dokboggi. heehee.

and i had quesadillas

and off we are to the river cruise!

 the night scene is awesome...! at first i thought the cruise was only around clarke quay river, but it actually traveled over to raffles place and marina bay sands. not bad.

there's also someone playing guzhen (or whatever it was) on the boat

what was memorable though, was that it started raining really really heavily in the middle of the ride. although we were sheltered, we had to move to the inside because the wind was just making everybody feel the rain wherever they sat anyway!!! i don't know why but it suddenly felt so titanic. can you see the rain in the pic... whoa.

babies were crying, people starting to squeeze together, it was cold and the rain kept getting heavier and heavier. what was good though, is i'm sure we'll never ever forget this night...!!!

when it was time to land, the rain wasn't stopping, so the employee brought umbrellas to shelter the tourist (but he himself was totally drenched). the umbrella didn't really help at all as the wind was too strong and almost uplifted 1 out of every 3 umbrellas. it was rather hilarious. even with the umbrella, we were 70% drenched. yeowcccch. we quickly ran to a nearby shelter, and darted all the way to Indochine for drinks.

thank goodness Indochine wasn't too cold, so we could dry ourselves off a little. i'm not sure what got into me, but i walked straight into the men's toilet to dry myself (in a cubicle). i was shocked when i exited and a man came walking in. x_x but er, it's not like i'll see you again right?!?!!?

the rain died down to a slight drizzle by the time we prepared to go, so we could walk from clarke quay back.
