On our 8th wedding anniversary, Joshua and I tried the city tour on an open top double decker bus. We told ourselves that we'll try the amphibious one another time. It actually took us 3 years to fulfil that wish on his birthday! LOL
It was such a pity that the waiting area was right next to the smokers' corner and thus I felt rather unwell the whole time after breathing in quite a bit of the cigarette smoke I'm so allergic to. Despite that, we really like this trip and enjoyed our humorous tour guide's comments throughout the ride. We actually learnt a few interesting trivia about our country's places of interest which we never knew.

Next, we went for a nice coffee break at Joshua's favourite cafe to enjoy a new flavour which he had been wanting to try, before we headed down to the MBS's Sky Park Observation Deck. This was yet another place we'd been wanting to go without the children since they would be so terribly bored within minutes. Plus, you can't imagine how long we had to queue to even go up there! Totally not worth the money to bring the restless kiddos.
But for us adults, we were mesmerised by the lovely view of the sunset and the city lights. Too bad the weather was not at its best. We kinda expected it to be breezy so high up but instead, the air was rather still and stuffy.
After that, we went to Toast Box for our dinner. We were rather disappointed with the standard of the food especially since it was so expensive. In fact, Joshua even said that my cooking is far better! Hahaha... We then made it to the light and water show, Spectra. Once again, I was miserably plagued by the selfish smokers who smoked right beside the audience area. It would have been so much better if they had the decency to smoke elsewhere or stop smoking if they had wanted to watch the show too.
It is so sad that Joshua had to worry about my health while we were out celebrating his birthday. I simply can't wait for the day when Singapore is finally declared a smoke-free society. I sure hope it will actually happen in my lifetime.
