Further on, we passed by a Chinese pharmacy and again we went inside to buy some medicine which were requested by my wife's office mates.
Finally, we reached Pagoda Street. Some stalls were just opening up, so we decided to have breakfast first.
We found an open coffee shop and ordered toasts and egg, with tea for my wife and coffee for me. My daughter preferred to have pancakes from McDonald's and luckily there was a store about a block away.
The breakfast was served with two soft boiled eggs where you dip your toasts. My coffee was thick and strong and although I rarely drink coffee, I liked the taste. I didn't try the tea, though.
After breakfast, we walked along Pagoda Street to buy souvenirs to being back home. Almost every store were selling the same items.
After some souvenir shopping and sightseeing at Pagoda Street, we crossed the bridge to People's Park and tried the Shandong Fried Pizza. It like a crispy empanada with onions and pork filling.
Walking towards the MRT Station in Clarke Quay, we took a train going to Raffles Place.
From there we walked along the banks of Singapore River until we got hungry and decided to have lunch.
After lunch, we walked towards the Merlion Park which was quite a distance. It started to rain, so we were stranded under the bridge just before the park.
The sky was still overcast when we got to the park. The Marina Bay Sands and other structures can be seen from this vantage point.
The Marina Bay Sands being across the river, we decided to reach it on foot. We realized later that it was quite a long walk to get there.
The place was really huge. Aside of course from the hotel, it has a mall an MRT station and a lot more other things to see and do. We didn't go the observation deck since there was a long line and we didn't want to wait.
Strolling along the mall, we saw these two characters and had a photo op with them.
My wife and daughter also had a boat ride inside the mall.
Exhausted and hungry, we took the train going back to Orchard road. We were supposed to meet a former officemate of my wife there.
We went to Lucky Plaza to buy some chocolates before finally returning to the hotel to retire, getting ready for our trip to Melaka the following morning.
