I brought Ivy, Joc, Jem and Gay to Sentosa last Saturday. It’s their first time to be in Singapore. New and old friends together, this should be interesting. Gay was a bit apprehensive at first, since she didn’t know the others, but she need not have worried as they were all very nice and at the end of the day, they were all comfortably close. I guess it helped that we all had something in common: we had all worked for different shared service centers back in the Philippines – P&G, Chevron, Shell and Deutsche Bank.
The day started off with me picking Gay up at her MRT station. Then we had lunch at Food Republic, where we had Hokkien Mee.
Then we met up with the other three girls and queued up at the Sentosa booth where after some discussion, they all decided to buy only the Songs of the Sea ticket. Which was okay, since they would all be staying in Singapore indefinitely anyway. They can always try the other stuff later on. So we just walked around Sentosa the entire afternoon, taking pictures all over the place, pausing for some snacks and then dinner before they watched Songs of the Sea while I waited for them because I had already seen it six times (I think).

|Andaming pandesal! Kape na lang ang kulang, may almusal na tayo.|
|Joc has a Palawan resort, so this feels like home to her. 😀|
|Gay is always all too ready to pose. I love it! 🙂|

|My first time to see this part of Sentosa, can you believe it?|
|the out of place cacti|
|and the jump shots begin|
|ang dinayang jump shot… dare I say what happened after this?|
|and they lived happily ever after|
At the end of the day, they said that even though they had seen only one paid attraction, a lot of things had happened and it had been a happy day indeed. And even though I had already been to Sentosa so many times already, it was also a very happy day for me. It’s always a happy event when you’re with friends you can be comfortable with, who will laugh at the same things you find funny, who enjoy the same things that you enjoy. In this case, pictorials. Here’s hoping for more moments with these girls. Next stop: the Philippine Palawan? 😉
