We took the train to Tanjong Pagar to catch the LKY funeral procession as it made its way down Shenton. I felt it was appropriate to see Mr. LKY from near my office. People were shouting his name. The lady next to me was in tears. I started to get misty-eyed out of gratitude. This chapter of history was ending. We attended the funeral service live stream from our home community center in Bishan. Touching tributes for a man who helped put this country together. I can’t imagine any other version of Singapore less than what it is now. Thank you Mr. LKY.
Looks good so far. Now towering next to the International Plaza.
As a bonus, the new Oasia hotel being built nearby too:
After months of training, I finally got to race with Filipino Dragons (Singapore). Crazy feeling this morning because it felt like my stomach was resting on my throat.
I was passing by Tanjong Katong yesterday so I decided to have a quick snack at the famed 328 Katong Laksa.
It was S$5.00 for a small bowl (S$7.00 for a big bowl). Otah was S$1.20 and a drink was about S$1.60.
The laksa was fabulous haha. I guess I’m sold on the sentimental value of this dish. The wall inside the restaurant was filled with photos of all the VIPs and celebrities that have come to visit their store over the decades.
328 Katong Laksa is at 41 East Coast Road.
Oooops it’s been some time since I last posted. I have four trainings per week with the dragonboat team. I try to squeeze gym in-between for crosstraining. I’ve lost an inch or two already on my waistline (!!).
I also went to Sri Lanka recently and the island country is amazing. I can’t wait to share my experiences so far.
Hope to be back soon with new updates and a new blog theme. 🙂
