In Singapura

Hey there guys

So here I am in Singapore. Took kids to follow dad. ever since got here saw husband for grand total of 26 minutes I think he he. He went off to some workshop and we had the entire day to ourselves yesterday.

So what did we do. I had to work in the morning so am at the PC doing something that actually can wait except my client did n't think so. And the kids played in the room. About 2 we went out, shopping. However, after a few minutes of going into Robinsons, Girlz, Principals, M&S, the kids dah boring, dah taknak shopping. Semua dah ngantuk lah, nak gi toilet lah etc. What did catch their attention was the toy exhibition . Sophia sempat lagi gi toilet.

Plus I suppose the shopping mall attached to this hotel ni not so happening. It's called Raffles City something. Tengok tu I nak carik nama dia pun dah malas. But it feels like Pavi to me- full of barang mahal and nothing I can actually buy.Tak macam kalau pi Parkson- melambak nak beli. Kids really need jeans shirts etc. Johan dah takda baju.

Tapi that mall takda banyak choice, even in RObinsons. Yah, everything sale btw. If I was alone probably I can shop but today macam semua orang penat. Yelah, we arrived pun at 5 am. Left the house earlier but stopped so many times as dad was sleepy and would not let me drive Seriously I did want to.

So today is Universal studio. Plan nya nak pi pagi and take the shuttle. I got some cash but then I spent a LOT on the food ! We went to eat at this place called Out of the Pan and satu satu crepe/wafle etc was abt SGD22 etc . Anak I order tak hingat dunia so the bill came up to about SGD172 . Dapat je bill terus suruh dia tapau apa yang tak habis he he. Kalau tak macam sombong kan, tinggalje. Ye lah jugak the crepe/waffle BESAR so manalah nak habis but because so mahal PACK makan kat bilik ok. Waffle pun mahal mak oi.

Dad came back at about 6 pm and was surprised that we did not get on the MRT to Orchard Road etc. Dah semua orang nak malas malas...last last kita pergi swimming je. Pool was fantastic actually. Sara nyesal sbb tak bawak suit. I told her too she tak nak , she said she didn't know the pool was going to be that cool! Ada ke. Sophia lak tak leh swim for er- womanly reason. Nadine segan nak pakai her swimming suit walhal muslimah. So the 3 of the girls watched je lah adek dia orang ni swim. Dah lah Dahlia and Johan enjoy sakan. Buat jeles je. When I told them JOM kita pi makan dinner, kakak depa ni pun seronok dapat panggil adek dia naik.

Dinner was just at McD. I geram lah kat Singapore ni. Macam susah sangat ke dapat ayam daging halal. Kalau semua halal kenapa. pengsan ke? Ini orang ISlam macam pariah pulak, catu catu mana yang boleh makan. All fine dining is NOT halal. Concierge tu recommend lah itu ini. The minute I said Halal, dia blank. Last last dia kata BurgerK-PizzaHu- etc tu je yang halal. OI!!!! Kalau halal pun you allz yang tak Islam can makan gak kan. Ni dah 2010 orang melayu kat Sings tak bising ke?? Last last I makan McD je. Ada new menu tak pernah nampak- McWings. And takda bubur ayam, Nadine's fav. Buat kat rumah taknak, beli kat Mc D baru nak. Aparah anak anak I nih.


Anyway talk to you tomorrow. Dad in the other room (dapat 2 room) - Nadine and sara there too. I'm with my 2 youngest yang buat masa ini masih lagi nak peluk peluk mummy. Yang lain dah takndak dah. Cium mummy pun macam 1 microsecond je. Laga mulut dengan pipi I je nyaris tak terduduk punya lah cepat.

Ok byee

Salam SW,

Welcome to S'pore. Memang agar sukar nak cari makanan halal kat S'pura especially around Orchard area. I recommend you take your family to Jalan Sultan (Bugis MRT), or Geylang Serai (Paya Lebar MRT) for Muslim halal food.

As a Muslim Singaporean, kitaorang dah biasa with the situation. We just eat whichever is available HALAL.


Salam
Rafiah (Singapore)

Hi rafiah hope tak terguris hati komen I ni ya.maaflah kalau macam kasar sbb frust. Kitorang kaki makan tu pasal, naik lemak dah assume boleh tala je. Tapi kat kl pun actually kena tanya some places tu ada tak halal. Hope situation will change for singaporean muslims. I'm happy ada arah kiblat kat hotel dah dulu pegi takda. Ke, I'm unlucky?

Kita ni dah biasa kan senang kan M'sia, nak solat etc senang...and I hope it remains!

Hi SW,

You may walk near to Bugis, there's Seiyu there behind it there's a cofeeshop name Thong Seng which serve halal Chinese food and along e way there's a Indiaa shop to eat. Also you can eat at Raffles Hospital there's Banquet.

SW - As a Malay/Muslim Singaporean, I tak terguris langsung with your post abt halal eating places in Singapore. U are aware, the majority population of Singaporean are Chinese. Jadi makanan diorang tu lah yang banyak berlambak.

Anyway, glad to know that ada arah kiblat in the hotel which u and family are staying. This is the first time i heard abt this. Could it be the hotel u are staying is Royal Plaza at the Scotts? If yes, the hotel belongs to Sultan Brunei, jadi tak risau lah.

Hope you and family have a good time in Kota Singa!

HI Rafiah! We stayed at Swissotel Stamford , a very the bsy hotel adaaa je orang masuk . They were v friendly though and was apologetic that they could not think of any halal places except the fast food joints!

Yeah i love coming over. Its so different!

heeheh cik, jangan marah. Banyak makanan halal kat Singapore kot.

Lain kali kalau tinggal kat Swisshotel Stamford, saya syor gi makan Murtabak kat Jalan Sultan. Dah dekat sangat dah...

Area kat Masjid Sultan pun banyak kedai nasi padang yang sedap-sedap. I think just out of the shopping complex you are in ada Sakura, restaurant Thai. pun OK jugak rasanye.
Laaaa ..ye ke??? Murtabak is my favourite sebenarnya!Tak payah I makan mc d kalau tahu

Rasanya next time datang Singapore kena mintak tolongorang jadi "tour guide" lah. ha ha!
