It was raining on that day. The shower was quite heavy when we had our lunch. When the rain subsided, we paid our for our meals and continued walking towards an unplanned destination.
I didn't know what force had brought me here but again I still admired this mosque and Kampong Glam compound. So, we continued walking to the next spot that I also admired the architecture; THE ISTANA KAMPONG GLAM.
It's best to describe my visit to the Malay Heritage Centre of Singapore this time was quite lucky because there's an exhibition that revealed historical fatcs about Bugis ethnic. Sirri na Pesse (Honour and Pride), that was the title of the exhibition. The exhibition exposed many informative artifacts and collections about Bugis ethnicity in general and their community in Singapore.
Day 1 started on 2nd of January 2018. Boarding flight TR453 of Scoot Airlines, I landed at Changi Airport safely around 11.45 a.m. This time the trip was not for leisure but I would rather say for in-service professional development yet I did expect to explore Singapore more whenever I have the chance to do so.
The only male companion from Malaysia was a teacher named Afnan. He's teaching in Machang, Kelantan. We started a good and enjoyable relationship when we stepped our feet in on Singapore land. We boarded a metered-taxi that costed us SG20.90. The driver was quite talkative and he spoke in Malay-Pranakan accent which was something rare to me. I had imagined Munshi Abdullah era when I listened to that accent.
As Afnan and I were new to this place we did not know where to go for our lunch. After checked-in to our rooms, I just contacted an Uber to a place called Arab Street as suggested by a fried. I found that Arab Street actually was a place that I had been before; KAMPONG GLAM. We just had our lunch at a turkish restaurant called SUFI Turkish and Mediterranean Cuisine. Never in my life I had Turkish delicacies. The taste? I had tasted better cuisine than that.
