Ala-carte buffet lunch @ Sin Minori

There are many things to try and order from the menu. Unfortunately, neither my friend and I can’t eat much nor are we adventurous to put more variety on the table. We had a good lunch though, but not good enough for food photography.

Christmas dinner @ Azur, Crowne Plaza Changi Airport

This is my second time at Azur but the first time for Christmas dinner. But most surprising is seeing the sashimi and a quick check with NEA website provides the assurances.

The food is nice but the selection is quite limited for the price.

Christmas Wonderland @ Gardens by the Bay

Every time there’s a big event at Gardens by the Bay, it always pays to go early because the walk from the Bayfront station will be VERY crowded and the roads leading to the car park will be jammed. For Christmas Wonderland @ Gardens by the Bay is not different. We came early, very early so that my kids get to play.

There are many activities and attractions. The highlights are the Ice Palace, TrickArt and the Carnival games.

One has to be really really early for the Ice Palace, especially the ice playground because its really small and only a few can play at each half an hour interval and the hence the tickets got sold out very fast.

Price are quite expensive though… $12 for hour an hour in the freezer and $10 for the Carousel.

But for me, I really enjoy the lights.

Lunch at Sabio by the Sea

This is my first trip to Sentosa Cove. I had long heard about the restaurants and wanted to explore them. Finally, found time to sample one with my wife.

The food is nice, just too little calories for me… as usual.

Wheelchair Basketball- Singapore vs Thailand

This is my first time attending the Asean Para Games and I brought my family along. Compared to typical able-bodied basketball, Wheelchair Basketball shows more sportsmanship. The reason being that it is very common for players to fall down and though some might be able to flip themselves up quite spectacularly, others had to be helped up and these quite often included players from opposing team!

In the end, even though Singapore lost to Thailand at 51 to 19, the players had tried their best. Thailand indeed played well and were more skillful.
