We had a long night after the engagement, so much of partying - with Suresh and Paul. Paul left early, but Suresh was with us until about 5am. We ate some of the most unique dishes. We had pork in curry and fish in claypot - well, these were had at supper and then we headed home and slept. On the next day, we only woke up at 2pm. Well, actually, I only got up then, Rems and Tasha were up and tried in vain to wake me up so many times. Anyway, we got ready and left for the Singapore Zoological Gardens. Headed for Singapore at about 3, reached the Zoo at 4pm. We had a good 2 hours to finish the Zoo. In fact we did. Well, in fact we could only see all the animals, we could see any of the shows as it was raining and we also missed all the feeding sessions. But we have promised ourselves to go back to the Zoo. It is really worth it to go back there again. Anyway, here are the pics taken at the Zoo:-

After the trip to the Zoo, we headed to Boat Quay (as shown on the pics above), but before that we went to the famous Mohd Mustafa Superstore. Oh my god, it was amazingly cheap. Tasha went mad, she bought a lot of stuff - perfumes, toilettries, etc. After that we met up with Vicknesh, Yoges and Thatha at Newton Food Court for dinner. After dinner we headed back to JB.
Upon reaching JB, we got dressed and headed to After 5, a small pub along Tebrau Rd, where we met Michael. After a few drinks there, we headed to The Zone - duty free zone of JB. Went to a nice club called the Cabana, had a bottle of Chivas with the guys and then headed back home.
Slept the night, woke up at about 2 and then we left to KL. On our way, we picked up one of Rems friends (Jasbeer) along the way. We met Jasbeer at After 5, he is the GM of one of the resorts in P.Besar, Mersing. Oh yes, we will be going there soon, so till then, cheers!
By the way, we left JB at 3 and we reached KL at 6. Good timing. Came home had dinner and slept. It was a very very good trip. Thank you Remy for the transport and accomodation and thank you Suresh, Paul and Michael for the hosting while we were in JB.
