Tanjong Pagar Railway Station.

Went to the Train Station with Ryan about 7 Tuesdays ago to take pictures. Gosh I haven't updated in such a long time uh. =S

Aside from the stupid gif animation we created in the previous post at Barcelos Vivo City, we also took other pictures la.

In case you never knew, Singapore has a single railway station connecting it to Malaysia at Tanjong Pagar. It's a pretty interesting topic at Wikipedia cause there's lots of disputes regarding the station.

Anyways, first we sent Ryan's laptop for repair at the HP service centre.

This is an awesome futuristic looking underpass. Although it's quite old already I think.

Then we checked out the bus stop and realised it was only three stops to the train station. So like: "meh, three stops only, save money walk laaa."

Ryan getting ready to walk.

At first it was pretty okay cause we were under shelter.

I was swinging my camera around and pressed the shutter randomly. =D

Then we came upon this seemingly endless stretch of shade-less, shelter-less, urban desert with the blazing hot Sun above us relentlessly providing us with depressing thoughts about climate change and it's effects on the minuscule existence we call a World.

Actually we just walked down this long stretch under the hot Sun la. =D Exaggeration is a side effect of this super profound novel I'm reading that uses abtruse analogies, metaphors and conjectures that jumps constantly between the philosophical and the humorous. Hahaha I think my brain's going to asplode.

Anyways, made it to the train station in the end, where we said our goodbyes to Singapore and boarded the train into the unknown. Took pictures la, what else. Hahaha.

Train!! Woo!!

I've sat on the train from KL to Singapore once a few years ago, but never to this station because we got off at Woodlands checkpoint and took a taxi back home.

Saw this brick somewhere along the perimeter of the station.

Spot the fire hydrant.

Black and White HDR. =)

I forgot what the long stick things were. Trees? Poles? I only know, that they are loong, and sticky.

The place is pretty, preserved I guess. A startling contrast to the dazzling skyscrapers nearby. Dazzling cause the windows of the skyscrapers were all shiny and reflected the Sun into your eyes at times.

We walked all the way up to the departure area platform. Then left soon after that la cause everyone there was staring at us. =\


AchDeeArrs again.

From the railway station, we walked to the MRT station which was about 2 bus stops away.

Panning with Distractions. Hahaha.

Unique. =D

Had dinner at Clarke Quay. Then went home. =)
