My Singapore business trip story continues. This is the fourth day of support post go-live period; and three days since I made the first part of this post series. I’ve been busy with all of the techie parts to make my go-live application very successful. It was three days in a row that I need to support from 8PM until 8AM in the next day to make sure our application working well without any error thrown.
On my first day come in Singapore, I was looking around the city where I stayed for the whole one week. My company rent a hotel near Novena areas. I didn’t want to miss a chance to enjoy my Singapore business trip without having a personal travel plan. So I looked around areas and realize that area’s store designed very nice.
It’s not long then I took my lunch near that store. Although from outside the store looks very nice, but the food court inside it relatively small. The food sold in the store is around Malaysian, Chinese and Western and my first choice was a Chinese food. There are few stalls open. Mostly sell foods and only one stall selling drinks. My first impression for this food court, the food relatively same with Malaysia.
The food taste really nice. I took a pink chicken (pork) with aromatic rice. It was 4.5dollar, but my mind always converts it to ringgit Malaysia which means the price times ~3.01 at this time (Oct ’16). So in total, my meal was 13.55RM without drinks.
After took a quick lunch, I looked around the area where I stayed. I notice there is one mall called Novena Square which connects to Novena MRT. I really want to know more about this mall, since I will go to office by MRT. Therefore my expenses will stay lower than the budget.
I have some photos around my hotel. To be honest, Novena is a really nice area with a lot of trees and malls, therefore I wasn’t afraid of food because across the road there were more than two stores of food. Moreover, there is Fair Price Store that sells daily snacks.
In conclusion, I really enjoy my stay in Novena. A lot of things will happen in the next six days and stay tuned for the next chapter of this Singapore Business Trip post. I will cover my office in the next chapter.
