I need to find a way to get more hits on me blog… -_-;;
The day started with me completing yet another Physics chapter on the ten years series. Waves Properties is pretty easy stuff.
Later I spent the afternoon at Changi Beach Club with the family to attend a Wedding Solemnization Ceremony. I heard from somewhere that the Singapore Registry of Marriages has registered exactly 777 marriages today. Wonder what they did to the 778th registerer, though.
I was in green camo pants on that day, too. Only cos I didn’t have a green shirt. Happy Green Day, y’all. Or rather, Al Gore Day.
The solemnization was quite short, nothing interesting, no pictures taken. I interested myself in mixing orange squash with Coke and wolfing down custard puffs and Otah.
It was over as soon as it started. After a satisfying lunch with Custard Puffs and Otah, I heard for the Karaoke lounge for a couple of songs. I found Romaji lyrics for two certain classic Japanese songs, つぐない and 愛人, and accompanied my mother in a duet as she was more familiar with these songs. It felt really cool, as I found myself training my Hiragana reading skills while watching the subtitles roll.
I headed down to Ngee Ann City (the largest Japanese-people hangout in Singapore) afterwards, where this Cosplay Event was taking place. I was planning to document this event a bit, so that I have something to put up on my blog. ^_^ I’m noticing a lot of Cosplay events springing up lately. There’s slated to be another one happening at Downtown East. This time I’m planning to dress up like L. >.<
Anyway, they had police officers and metal detectors there. And no wonder, good ol’ LKY‘s making an appearance there too.
This group was performing when I got there, dancing to that irritating Seifuku theme from らき★すた. Later I realized that the Haruhi cosplayer was a guy. -_-“
Quite a lot of interesting stuff in display there too. I still have yet to find out who that Heterochromia Iridium-desu-desu Maid in Green is.
There were quite a lot of Danny Choos present too.
Just had to take this one. It’s very rare to see Orchard Road free of cars.
Later on, as things got a bit drearier I decided to hit The Heeren Mall nearby to cool off. I found a really huge HMV store there which took up three levels. It was pretty much the Kinokuniya-at-Ngee-Ann-City equivalent of a record store. Nearly all CDs I could think of, I could find. There were even imported (expensive) albums from Japan, like those of Angela Aki and Gazette. It was then that I realized just how much of a Swaa-koo (one who is uneducated about the world) I was.
A few more pictures later and I was ready to take the MRT back home. (The last picture was taken at the station itself) Back at Tampines, I decided to drop by Tampines Mall to check out the Isetan Hokkaido fair. It was frighteningly crowded, as everything was crammed into a moderately small area in the middle of the mall. I did manage to snatch some shots, though.
Multitasking at its best.
I think I should go back there again some time. I didn’t manage to see all the stalls, let alone identify the things I’ve taken pictures of. Also, I want more Gelato. Suzuki-san makes some great Gelato.
