Here is our itinerary of the day....
06.50am:- Assembled at Simei MRT Station.
But wait!.... What's that at the back row????
Even after we crossed the Malaysia custom and changed bus, the legs are still sighted at the back row...
After getting past the Malaysian custom, the cards are out and the players gathered.
Angeline led them in a series of card games, everyone (except the pair of legs) had fun...
I've never met a Caucasian who likes durian, but Taru loves durian.
Soon she was holding a big tub of durian slurping away.
Cindy and gang lost the game earlier, so their forfeit was to treat everyone with durian. Which she is very happy to do so.
Everyone enjoyed the fruit feast, the durian is exceptionally sweet, and the 2 big tub only cost RM$70. All thanks to Cindy and gang.
She took over the mic from the tour guide and started to play games and tell "Cold jokes".
Although the lobster is smaller than those they pointed to, but it tasted very good. The other dishes are just as well cooked. No wonder it has so many pictures of celebrities dinning there.

They were telling me that the birds chases people in red T-shirt, I think they were making fun of me but I'll still keep my distance.
This "Elvis" Chicken can do tricks. The keeper told him to stay still, and he did. Stayed in that position until it got a tap from him again.
After seeing how they grow them, we went to see how they grill them. They made into satay meat. Its very tender, very juicy.
07.00pm:- Seafood Restaurant
Next, we were brought to an air-conditioned seafood restaurant. but we were warned that it could be a long wait because of the over crowding.
The tour guide kept telling us to smile, we were rather tired, so this is the best we can managed.
The food finally came after about half an hour wait, we all attacked it without much hesitation. In less than 10 minute, we finished everything on the table!
8.15pm:- Jetty (Fire Flies)
It was a short walk to the jetty where we waited for our turn to get on the boat. We were told that the dark river is called Straits of Johor, it is also where the fire flies are.
It is an requirement for all of us to put on the life jacket. You can see from here that we were all geared up for the boat ride.
Everyone enjoying the breeze in the boat, which is surprisingly stable. Here we also get to enjoy the moon and the stars....
This is the Firefly, its smaller than I expected. But when they glittered together, it looks like early Christmas.
This video you may not be able to see much, just occasional blinks of fire flies lights, but more importantly is what you'll hear. The excitement of everyone on board ( especially Yubing) when we were all trying to catch the firefly.
When our boat went under a bridge, the boatman shone his powerful torch towards the top and we were shocked to see hundreds of sparrows nesting there. I was sort of relieve that it's not bats, but the sight still makes my skin crawl.
11.45pm:- Tuas Check Point
