Con người, vốn có một trái tim Hồng Lâu Mộng, nhưng lại sống trong thế giới của Thuỷ Hử, muốn có được những người bạn kết nghĩa vườn đào trong Tam Quốc, nhưng lại luôn gặp phải mấy con yêu ma quỷ quái trong Tây Du Ký.

People have a Dream of Red Mansions, but they live in the world of Water Margin; they want to take an oath of the peach garden with sworn brothers in Three Kingdoms, but they always meet monsters in Journey to the West.

Singapore, Day 2: Sentosa Island And Mayday Concert

In order to be present at Sentosa Island early, I decided to skip the breakfast somewhere not near the 5footway.inn. Unluckily, Singapore seemed to be a country that woke up late though the Sentosa pass said they operated from 8:45am. Around 9:30am we changed the tickets and took the cable car to see what Sentosa had to offer.

After reaching the Faber’s Peak to find out that it was closed, we went down to have lunch at Beaver’s Cafe. Though the restaurant was kinda hard to find, their meals were delicious.

As we only had 3 options out of many recreational spots at Sentosa, we went around for quite some time before picking the aquarium though the Royal Albatross had to be redeemed together. Though we were in time for the last opportunity to visit the ship, it was nothing like unique nor luxury.

The Trick Eye Museum (a 3D+AR studio) was our last choice because I didn’t feel like visiting the likes of Madame Tussaud after something lookalike at Ba Na Hills in Danang, Vietnam. Turned out we had some fun for the afternoon though the museum was rather old.

After leaving Sentosa Island, my sis and I made a shopping spree at Daiso in VivoCity before we parted ways. My sis went to see the Gardens by the Bay while I found my way to the Mayday concert at Singapore Indoor Stadium. As usual, I made another mistake with finding the right MRT line and it took me rather long to get to the right station. Luckily, the stadium was right outside the station and I still had time to check in and buy some snack for dinner.

The Singapore fans gave me some banners to cheer the band. They were so organized. I took the wrong seat at first, but later I still found my seat quite comfortable. Only at the end of the show did the fans behind come in front of me. The light stick was so much better than the band at the Coldplay’s concert earlier this year in Bangkok. And Mayday’s sponsor also gave us some gift (face masks I guessed).

Out of 3 gigs I attended this year, this was the best one. However, I missed the last song at 11:15pm as I was afraid that the MRT would stop operating. I kinda found myself and very few people on the last trains back to Chinatown.
