Backpacking Day 3: Morning Spent at Marina Bay (MRT Station only)

Our Third day a.k.a Ikot-ikot Singapore / Why you rainin' Singapore

I'll divide this day into three posts because I have a lot of pictures from Universal Studios and if I make this like our first and second day, this will be so lengthy (to think na ang haba na nga ng day 1 and day 2.) and so picture-packed.

Our third day started out okay although we were late again.

 Before going to sleep, "We're waking up at 5 AM, right? So we can leave home at 6 AM and start touring before sunrise?" Sunrise in Singapore is around 7:15 in the morning and leaving home at 6 AM was the best time so we can arrive at Marina bay before twilight. When we were on our way to Golden Mile Complex, we passed by the area at ang ganda niya tignan sa gabi, e baka wala na kaming time go there at night 'cause our bus was set to leave Singapore at 10:00 PM, May 27.

Enough for overestimating ourselves, we woke up at 7. HAHAHA! Sabihin na natin na understandable kasi 'yun palang 'yung matinong tulog namin since our adventure started. Nagkita-kita kami sa airport ng 4 AM (madaling araw ng May 25), sa bus lang kami natulog (madaling araw May 26) kaya nung gabi ng May 26 pa-umaga ng May 27, ayan nakabawi-bawi. Walang nakarinig ng alarm. Kalurks.
When were in Ang Mo Kio, it was the best weather to go around. It was a bit sunny, windy and cloudy. Ano pa 'di ba? Not too hot and not too cold.

Ang Mo Kio (NS 16) we rode the red line to Marina Bay (NS 27).
I belong. <3

For some reasons, I developed this desire to stay longer there. Or maybe someday, I get to experience working/studying there even for a month or a year. I don't know what's going to happen but syempre, let's hope for the best. Basta, gusto kong bumalik sa Singapore. :))
Marina Bay Sands selfie turned out to be Marina Bay I'm so Sad selfie... Marina Bay MRT Station is an underground station so we had no idea that it was already raining hard outside. GRABE!!!! How can it rain that hard when the weather was so nice about an hour ago? Oh wells papels, ganyan siguro talaga. :)))
Late na nga kami. Nausog pa lalo because of the rain.
Oh Marina Bay, you're so close yet so far.

After waiting for 30 minutes, (hindi pa rin tumitila ang ulan!!) we decided that we' were wasting our time so we travelled to Vivo City and just pass by Marina Bay again before heading home. Duuuuh, hindi kumpleto ang SG trip pag walang picture sa Merlion.

I've never felt so lost, SG. NEVERRRRRRRRRR. Sa'yo lang talaga. :)))))
'Yung pakiramdam na alam mo sa sarili mong you're okay with directions, you understand maps well, you're good at remembering places pero kahit na alam mong tama ka, may bubulong pa rin sa'yong baka mali ka. No room for mistakes. Pamasahe at oras na naman ang mawawala niyan.

Hindi ko na maalala kung anong nangyari (selective amnesia) pero 'yung feeling na andun lang naman kami sa loob ng station, may map ng MRT pero walang-wala talaga. Sobrang lost kids. Sumakay na lang kami. Bahala na kung maikot ulit ang buong SG. hahahaha. Basta ang binayaran namin, pa Harbour Front na fare. 
Ang reputasyong inalagaan ko... naglaho lang sa loob ng tatlong araw na pamamalagi ko sa ibang bansa. Pssssh! Tayo-tayo lang may alam nyan. hahahaha. Sa Pilipinas, hindi mo talaga ko mawawala ever! Jokeeee. :) 

Life, I don't mind being lost again. :))))) Isa pa pls? hahaha.
Another factor that added to our whutdapak moment was when all the other passengers alighted at this station, I forgot the name. OMG, anmeron?!
Anyway, from Marina Bay (NS27) we rode until Dhoby Ghaut (NS24) transferred to DG's North East line (NE6) to Harbour Front (NE1).

Ganda ng stations nila, noh?

Singapore MRT and LRT stations map link: here.

Their public transportation is really good and well-planned but it's also very very complex especially for first timers. Madali intindihin 'yung map, okay sige, ang nakakalito lang 'yung paglipat ng line kahit iisang lugar lang naman at kahit maraming signages. Kalokaaaa. Sige, palusot pa me. hehehe. :)) They have 106 operating train stations and a lot more are still under construction and planning. Babalik ako for you, MRT/LRT bespren.
Disbelief* Uncertainty* Skepticism
Selfie pa more. 


Madalas, instinct lang pinapagana ko pag ganyan pero tinanggal ng SG lahat ng magagandang (at strengths) inakala kong ako. HAHAHAHA! (Wala na si whiz kid sa directions, wiz kid na) :)))) 


We got lost but that experience drove us to "desire" getting lost in another country/city again. But if you're going there and that's the reason why you stumbled upon this post, you're on the right track. Kulang lang talaga siguro kami sa research. hahahaha.
But whatevs, we arrived at Vivo City/Sentosa.

I was okay again.
