teachers day celebrations were quite cool right? really fun. memorable moments like the whole class being late together and running in the rain, mr seet having pink balloon breasts, xiao yun turning into a monster (and a high one), and a male teacher's skirt dropping right in front of us.
however i'm not here to talk about events that went on in the school. its about a tour that 3 of our classmates (me, terence and desmond) took after all the hype of teachers day at around 5.30pm. it was the (FREE!) tour of singapore's very own BUDGET TERMINAL!
yes my fellow classmates. just how many of you have been to the budget terminal before? i doubt many of you have. back to the story of the tour, me terence and desmond and 3 other hockey guys boarded the (FREE!) shuttle service and we were on our way to the prestigious terminal...
upon arrival at the budget terminal, we were completely mesmerized by the size of it. as what terence said, it was comparable to the size of our school hall. standing at one end of the terminal, we could actually see the opposite end! how cool is that!! we somehow got lost and looked anxiously for our bearings at a nearby directory...
p.s. the rectangle terence was pointing at was the hall, and the black dots were the pillars. go figue =D
we fortunately managed to find our way thanks to the wonderful directory. desmond then said profoundly, "tourists will get their first impressions of countries by looking at the state of the toilets.
lets go check out the toilets". bowing to his wisdom and knowledge, we followed desmond to go see what impressions the toilets there would leave us.
the toilets had hangers! thats a plus point to singapore's image! however, to the utter disappointment and dismay
of desmond, the toilet taps were NOT AUTOMATED
. you actually had to PRESS
the tap for water to come out! what utter rubbish! how can singapore allow this to happen in our very own budget terminal! what kind of image of singapore are we portraying to the countless of tourists flocking the budget terminal! absurd! ridiculous!
after that major setback and after consoling desmond, we generally agreed that the toilets were above average, but there were still a lot to be done to improve the conditions of the oh-so-important-toilets.
we then proceeded to further explore the terminal, and agreed that it would make a great place for playing floorball. how many terminals in the world can boast that?!
with that we concluded our tour, and with a heavy heart, we left the budget terminal by boarding the (FREE!) shuttle bus back to terminal 2. nevertheless, this tour has provided us with indispensable and priceless information that we would need in the future if we were to build an airport terminal, and the tour will be engraved into our minds for the rest of our lives.
just in case you all are still wondering what the heck is wrong with us, we had nothing better to do.
oh, and yes, we DID ask strangers to take some of the pics for us. shameless? yup. =D
till the next time.
