This morning I woke up and got ready to go to dim sum with my friend Hong-Miao. We met during my trip to Greece last month! She met me at my hotel and we went to Chinatown. Dim sum was delicious! We walked around Chinatown after dim sum and I was able to see the shops and stalls selling cool stuff! Hong-Miao gave me a nice gift and we said our goodbyes. I really hope she (and Jessy) visit me in LA!!
I caught a cab and returned to my hotel where I promptly checked out and took a taxi to my cousin Michael’s place. I met up with my aunt Iris when I arrived. She flew in from Jakarta in the morning. We settled in at Michael’s place then aunt Iris and I went out for a walk to the main shopping area of Singapore. While we were walking, it began to POUR RAIN!! We ducked out in front of a store and waited for about half an hour but the thunder and lightning just kept going. We had to meet up with Michael across the street so we just decided to make a run for it with my tiny umbrella. Our feet were soaked but we were able to dry off rather quickly. We met up with Michael and his girlfriend Samantha and went to a restaurant in the mall. Afterwards we went grocery shopping then took a car back to Michael’s place. We hung out and watched a movie. After a while we all went to a restaurant called Long Beach and had an amazing dinner. What an awesome day!
