Singapore : Tales and more eating & leeching..

The 4 Musketeers on top of Mt Faber. Chris was scared into believing that we had to walk about 3km Uphill to the top of Mt Faber. *gullible*

*btw.. Gabe why is your hand on Chris' knee?*

Side Track :
On our way down we saw the famed "Merlion" at the top of Mt Faber. Gabe then became a bit "complain-y" ... he said something to this effect

"This Merlion thing.. is a load of crap.. the government coined up some tall tale about how this Merlion thing came about. Singapore has such a rich history, and they came up with this story. They claimed that the Merlion came about when parameswara (Javan prince who came to Singapore in 1400s) and as he saw the Lion, it jumped into the sea and became a Merlion and has been since guarding the seas around Singapore"

*Merlion is supposed to be a Mermaid Lion* uh duh

So Singaporeans.. do you agree with your fellow Singaporean?

While walking back from dinner, we saw Hypnotheraphy, so we asked Chris to be "hypnotised", unfortunately the flash bounced off the roadsigns... but i think the effect is cool. :)

    the Doraemon guitar pic is super cool. Yes, I'm wondering why Gabe's hand is on Chris' knee as well. Hey...where's the pic of Lionel chatting up the gal ? I may know the Singapore gal lah.... after all, the population is so small....hehehe

    We get excited because we get a sense of "home" when we're away.. :P
    Holidays take us away from home, but we still like home.. makes us appreciate home a bit more.. yes? no?

    I didn't notice Gabe's hand on Chris' knee/lap.. until I posted it.. *grin*...

    Vagus.. hmmm i don't want to know what hairy legged doctor's think.. ka ka ka..

    Sharkie..
    we didn't get to meet the gal.. somehow.. we wanted to leave him alone.. guys are not so kaypoh lar..
    Doraemon Guitar is a novelty item i think.. if we used it.. it would draw too much attention.. moreover the pick scratches on the guitar would.. erhem.. scratch doraemon's pouch.. :P
