Today, after days of Joshua bugging me what to do, we finally decided to go cycling after his Maths S. and victor joined us. actually I’d rather do something else, but don’t have much choice, since nothing else seemed to be on the Indifference Curve, so I cycled for about an hour before meeting them at Balestier, which is about the same time they took to go home from college. Then, we cycled down south towards Orchard, then towards URA Building via Chinatown. Took another hour to reach there. Some memories of UNR in the area.
We had some cooling dessert at the maxwell food centre before viewing the URA Gallery, which was pretty cool. I went there before, but that was so many years ago. They upgraded parts of the exhibit, it’s quite interesting to see all the architectural models, which I marvel at since young. Being an urban planner or architect has always been one of my childhood dreams.
We spent about and hour plus there, before cycling back via Raffles Place, Esplanade, and had a “pit stop” at bugis, where Joshua enticed me to buy some chocolate thingy from Bread Papa, and brownies from Four Leaves. The former cost $2.20 (ouch) but the choc cream is “molten” and tasty, while the brownies were great too. The Four Leaves at Hougang Mall don’t have so many things lah. After that, we cycled and parted ways at Lavender Street, where the sky started to turn grey. After cycling past old VS at Geylang Bahru, it started to drizzle, and then heavy rain while I took shelter at potong pasir bus stop. The weird man who camps at the bus stop, whom I always see when I go home from VS, is still here. Poor man. Anyway, almost wanted to park the bike there and take the train home. Or, as we pondered just now, who says we can’t have bikes on MRT? lol. hah no lah, I waited till the rain quieten down before cycling back home.
Hmm 12km+ in 2 hours, rest for a while, then another 12km in 2 hours. Thereafter leg a little cramped, and sun tanned. It was enjoyable, though pretty tired now. Time for bed.
Last Saturday during cell, Lydia asked everyone “what’s the biggest sacrifice I’ve made”…well didn’t answer at that point of time. But what I could say now is: Entering JC instead of otherwise, and spending 2 years in a place mugging instead of striving
