I started the March holidays with a visit to somewhere which I have wanted to visit for a long time-the Changi Chapel & Museum.
It was a nice little museum which had everything about the Japanese Occupation of Singapore and some little history of Changi. When I think of how the Japanese government has been trying to hide their history from their own people, I really hope the Japanese kids should come here and witness how their ancestors tortured the rest of Asia. As people of God, we should forgive the Japs, but we cannot forget the past. We must learn from the past and make sure we don't commit the same mistakes.
One thing I didn't know before was- Pakistan actually had their army forces in Singapore to fight against the Japanese! And India actually had the biggest forces in Singapore to counter the Jap's attack. It was definitely a enriching trip on a hot Saturday afternoon!
Since I was in Changi, I decided to make a visit to Changi Village too. Well, not to see Ah Gua (if u r thinking about them!), but to take a bite and a drink from their hawker centre. After quenching my thirst and filling up my stomach, I saw this nice little building, only to find out that it was the Changi Ferry Terminal! So this is the place where you will need to come if you want to go Pulau Ubin. It has a nice walkway at the back of the building which allows you to see the coastline and the sea surrounding Changi.
After I have taken the pictures, I thought this place don't look like it is in Singapore! Really nice! One day I must go to Pulau Ubin.
At night, Cindy & I went over to Ruth's place for dinner. She cooked for us! And this time around, her Chinese food were much much better than the first time when she cooked Tom Yam soup for us. We had raw baby spinach, mashed potatoes with mustard seeds, pasta and herbal chicken. And yes, lots of wine too! How not to drink when we are at Ruth's place.This Limoncello was 26% alcohol. It was power! We had to take it in shots!
So there you go, my very unusual Saturday!
