Friday, 23-Oct. My second day, day off.
I’ve been eyeing this kind of thrilling activities ever since I tried it back in Wyong, Australia. And I can’t believe we do have it too here in Singapore!! ☆*:.｡.o(≧▽≦)o.｡.:*☆
Believe it or not, the very first time I tried it I had my eyes teary I couldn’t believe I tortured myself taking such a dangerous activity and high above from the ground, like that. I was quite sure it would be my first and last time walking on a rope 5 meters above the ground and I couldn’t stop cursing on myself. I almost cried when my friend, Uni, insisted us to take the third level instead of me sitting down at the ground trying hard to get my sht together…
But that was me three years ago. <(￣︶￣)>
Not long after that momentous activity, I am craving for same kind of adrenaline-pumping adventure! Apparently I found being so high above the ground – with safety harness on, walking from one tree to another, climbing, swinging, flying-foxing, tip-toeing, jumping, crawling, are VERY addictive! I was thrilled to try this adventure! (╯✧▽✧)╯

How lucky I finally have my holiday in the midst of this worldwide lockdown! Singapore is currently on Phase-2 of Circuit Breaker. We don’t call it Lockdown here, we don’t want to make everyone panic. But what is Circuit Breaker?
“The 2020 Singapore circuit breaker measures, abbreviated as CB, was a stay-at-home order and cordon sanitaire implemented as a preventive measure by the Government of Singapore in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in the country on 7 April 2020.” ~ Wikipedia.
Phase-2, however, has been implemented since 18 June 2020. Just two days after my birthday – yes I belong to that sad group of ppl who couldn’t celebrate birthdays due to this virus. The Multi-Ministry Taskforce announced on 15 June 2020 that Singapore will move into Phase Two after 18 June 2359 hours. This is because community infection rates have generally remained stable, cases in migrant worker dormitories have declined, and there are no new large clusters emerging.
Ok, enough for the lesson. So where did I go during my hols? (o˘◡˘o)
East! Me and my friend, ciMel (you should remember her from my Kyushu and Hồ Chí Minh holidays!) main goal was to buy facial treatment product, skii somewhere in Changi Terminals – not sponsored! So, our first stop was:

Jewel Changi Airport, commonly known as Jewel, is a nature-themed entertainment and retail complex on the landside of Changi Airport, Singapore. Linked to three of its passenger terminals, the centrepiece is the world’s tallest indoor waterfall, named the Rain Vortex, which is surrounded by a terraced forest setting.

The Phantom of the Opera is a musical with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Charles Hart. The story is based on the French novel of the same name by Gaston Leroux, its central plot revolves around a beautiful soprano, Christine Daaé, who becomes the obsession of a mysterious, disfigured musical genius living in the subterranean labyrinth beneath the Paris Opéra House.
I was randomly walking around Holland Village where I found this beautiful colorful picture in a huge canvas panel. When I looked closer, it was apparently variety of peranakan windows photographed in their 60s or 80s edited into 1 huge picture. Unfortunately I don’t know who the artist behind this beautiful masterpiece. What do you think about this picture?
Five years ago – This building was the witness of my happy tears; of the future I’m trying to reach out; of a land where – someday – I will call home.
