The socialising continues

It has been a really long day, I'm exhausted but in a good way. We spent the day at Sentosa Beach with a bunch of friends. They're the fun-loving type, so we had a great time playing frisbee, eating prata, drinking beer, bouncing to music and enjoying the sunshine until... the clouds moved in.

Then we spent the next hour huddled under a small shelter as rain pelted down around us. There was nothing to do but watch lightning streak through the sky and wish for the rain to stop.

When the sky finally cleared, we were back playing frisbee again until my body was too tired to move. I'm so going to be in pain tomorrow.

We joined Chris and wife for dinner at Kampong Glam cafe for Malay food. We tried all their specialities - mee siam, soto ayam, tauhu goreng and sayur lodeh. The dishes were good. I especially like the rich chicken broth of the soto ayam.

We explored Kampong Glam on foot after dinner just like a group of tourists. We stopped by the Malay Cultural Centre which showcases the rich history and culture of Singapore’s Malay community. Sometimes you don't have to travel anywhere to discover new places.

We walked until we ended up at the same cafe again. After a cup of coffee, I was too tired to do anything else, so we parted ways. I'm so glad to be in the comfort of my home again. Home sweet home.

It does sound like you had fun. But I always appreciate coming home too, to home sweet home.
