The bell boy who helps us to cross the street and wave taxi.
We had dinner at the night market. This “kitchen” is a temporary set up one, only open at night.
While waiting for food.
With the temporary kitchen, they can actually come out with all this food, isn’t it amazing?
Another amazing thing, the traffic. I salute to the drivers here.
Next morning, we had breakie at the roof top.
The stall at the road side that sells French loaf.

The unique fried rice and it was nice.
After the chill out, we tried very hard to get cabby back to hotel. But unfortunately, we were rejected for a few times then we knew it from one of the cabby that the main road was massive traffic jam. We were lucky enough to get in a cab after a few street walk.
Why are they got so high? All because of Vietnam won Singapore in a football match. I got to see it live where always show in TV news.

Road side stall
We visit almost all the shopping mall that is accessible and we walk our way back to the hotel.
We seriously need a treat of this after all the walking. A hot hot foot bath and I am so glad that only the three of us.

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring
Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun
Now the jingle hop has begun.
Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
Dancing and prancing in Jingle Bell Square
In the frosty air.
What a bright time, it’s the right time
To rock the night away
Jingle bell time is a swell time
To go gliding in a one-horse sleigh
Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and a-mingle in the jingling feet
That’s the jingle bell,
That’s the jingle bell,
That’s the jingle bell rock.
