Tour de Sengkang

Last Sunday (2 April 2006), we went to Sengkang to visit the new home of Aidan, the son of Uncle Wisnu and Aunty Shinta. They just moved from Bedok Reservoir to Sengkang just a couple of months ago. We have not seen Uncle Wisnu, Aunty Shinta and Aidan for quite some time already. Last time we met them during Inka's birthday party last December, and also when we went to Pendas and Johor Bahru together last September.

Sengkang is a new town on the north-east side of Singapore. Together with Punggol, the town is connected to the downtown Singapore via a new subway line, the North-East Line (NEL). The train journey from Sengkang town to Dhoby Ghaut on Orchard Road will only take about 20 minutes.

We reached Aunty Shinta's apartment in Anchorvale, Sengkang, at around 11:30am. After which, we walked to Compass Point to have lunch. Compass Point is the biggest shopping mall around Sengkang. It's next to the Sengkang MRT and LRT stations, and it's only less than 10 minutes' walk from Aunty Shinta's place.

There's Banquet halal food court there on the 2nd floor, however it's very small, so we decided to go to the Kopitiam food court on the 4th floor. However, as we expected, it's also packed. So we decided to have our lunch at Sakura restaurant, a halal Chinese and Thai restaurant, with quite reasonable prices. You can find the photos here.

After lunch, we went to Kiddy Palace to buy some toys for Inka and Irza there. We also bought some home-made waffles from Prima Deli, before going back to Aunty Shinta's place. There are two playgrounds in the apartment complex, so Inka, Irza and Aidan took the opportunity to play in one of the playgrounds and have fun. You can find the photos here.

Since it was going to be raining soon, we rushed back to Aunty Shinta's place, and Inka, Irza and Aidan continued to play and have fun there. More photos of Inka, Irza and Aidan at Aunty Shinta's place can be found here.
