The moment we arrived at the hotel, we decided to step out right away to look for something hot to eat. The weather was hot, but since we flew so early and have not eaten a proper breakfast, I said I wanted something "soothing." So we walked to a nearby food place where there were a number of office workers probably having an early lunch (it was around 11 am). We ordered Fish Ball Noodle Soup, and for the duration of the meal, neither of us was speaking XD All we knew was that our tummies were thanking us XD
After exploring a bit, we went back to the hotel to take a nap, and we woke up at some time in the late afternoon. We took a walk around the area again and found another eating place where most of the customers were really old people, and there was something comforting about them. Some were enjoying their rice or noodles, some were passing time drinking tea, and some were playing some board game. Since there were hardly any free tables, one of the customers stood up from his meal and cleared a nearby table for us so we could sit with our trays of chicken. I got myself a Roast Chicken Rice.
On the way home (to the hotel), we passed by a fruit stand - which sells sliced fresh fruits on sticks, all ready to be eaten. My sister chose kiwi, dragonfruit, and honeydew. I got for myself some kiwi too, papaya, and dragonfruit.
The next day, we had our first 1929 breakfast. It's basically the same for all the other mornings, but it was all so good, we never got tired of it. Mine consists basically of four parts - some warm croissant with butter and jam, a small bowl of chocolate rice crispies with milk, a plate of scrambled eggs with beans, potatoes, sausage, and bacon, and a small cup of Meiji yogurt, which comes with huge chunks of strawberries inside. Of course, there is always my double cup of coffee (^___^)
That day was our Ikea day. Right after our full breakfast, we headed out to shop. We finished around 2 pm, so we decided to just have really late lunch someplace near the hotel, because we were also craving for some Chicken Rice.
After lunch, we wanted to check out the iced desserts place we saw the day before, so we went. I got myself Almond Ice while my sister picked Strawberry Ice. I absolutely loved my Almond Ice!

For dinner, we went to another nearby place. We couldn't get enough of chicken rice! But we saw that they also offered Century Egg Chicken Porridge, so we decided to share both XD

On the way home, I bought some fruit again (^.^) This time it's watermelon and papaya (^^,)
|After-dinner Fruits :3|
The next day, we went to Takashiyama to shop. For lunch, we had Tori-Q! I chose the chicken of course, the unagi, the pork with asparagus, and another chicken stick with something.
After more shopping (we spent a pretty long time in Kinokuniya XD), we stopped by at Cedele to rest and have coffee and cake, and to buy some mints and jam for bringing back home.
711 was one of our most frequented stores because we were checking out the chocolates and snacks and milk drinks and consumed them in the hotel room as we watched TV and got carried away by their TV ads that we ended up trying out the chocolates we saw on the screen. So that night, before bedtime, we drank our Meiji milk drinks (^^,) Perfect way to end a long and tiring day of shopping XD
The next day, our 4th, we left our bags at the lobby and did some last minute shopping, then came back to be picked up by our cab which would bring us to the airport. Of course, we wouldn't leave Singapore without some Kopi Tiam XD
