Experience at the McDonald's Marine Cove

Image
Last week, we went to the noisiest and most unruly McDonald's in Singapore. It's the one at Marine Cove located at the East Coast Park. Even when we were entering the doors, we were blocked by some two or three kids playing on their scooters and they were not giving way because they were playing right there. We could have pushed the door and then they fall or we just have to wait until they move away. We did manage to enter even while they were still on the bikes and playing as we tried to open the glass door carefully and not tripping ourselves.
That's a no no already.
It was so crowded that we actually have a bit of difficulty finding seat but since it was only two of us, I saw these two seats at a corner and we managed to snap it up. But those with larger number of people may have to wait. And looking around, I doubt they were going to leave that easily because it was at the beach and they looked like they were chilling in the aircon so there.

ArchiFest Exhibition 2016

Last September, my brother and I checked out this makeshift exhibition pavilion called the Archifest. Who would have thought of setting up this exhibition right outside the Raffles Place MRT station, where despite the high foot traffic as it's in the CBD (Central Business District) area, I still think it was quite an interesting choice of location. Anyway, when we entered the pavilion, which looked like one where you entered a pasar malam or night market, we were greeted with few but very interesting and colourful exhibits.
The first thing we saw were hammocks where people were lying down and basically just chilling while kids were just having fun playing with them. We didn't sit on one and for me, basically coz I don't want to break the thing, lol.
So we moved on and saw various exhibits that were definitely instagram worthy, as you can see from the pictures below. But who would have thought that they were actually recycled like the clappers that you may see people using if…

Life May be Unpredictable But Don't Waste it All Away

I've been a little obsessed with this indie Hong Kong movie that I found on youtube which I knew about from years ago but only uploaded in full online. It's about the friendship formed between two people fated to meet each other except that one was found out later to be a drug addict with a troubled past that comes back haunting him and therefore keeping the two friends adrift despite one's effort to make him stop with the abuse with the promises of taking him overseas on vacation. The arrival of a former girlfriend and the death of a parent sent him on a downward spiral and eventually, to his death during his hallucination when he escaped from the hospital.

I really cheered for these two but one can only help oneself to overcome the seriousness of drug abuse. They really bond well together..er..even during their recreational use of drugs I suspect is ecstasy, which only the affluence, basically people like him, can get a hold on. While I really enjoyed the movie, there are…
