Day 1 In Singapore

Most people were shocked when they knew that I will have a traveling trip to Singapore on 3 April 09. The reasons are:
1. The currency exchange rate is simply too high, SGD : MYR = 1.00 : 2.40
2. I'm jobless now, it will spend lots of extra money!
Well, I'm so free now and not restrain by the job responsibility, so don't you think is the best time go for a vacation? The Tiger Airways offered low price on the 2 ways tickets (Kuching ~ Singapore), it just cost me RM375.00 for 2 persons. Between, as we stay at my younger brother's rented apartment unit, so can save lots of money on the hotel accommodation.

It is worth, you know why? I met KennySia for the first time in the Tiger aircraft (Kch ~ Sg)...he just sit beside me, I'm on seat 18B, while he was on seat 18C......I asked "Are you Kenny Sia?" and said "Nice to meet you!", while he says nothing, only nod his head, read his book (tourism guide) & had a nap with a sleep mask...
