another sand castle

Today we decided to play with the sand again. The weather was so nice. We left home quite late and having lunch on the way to bus stop. We need to change bus at HarbourFront Bus Interchange to get to Sentosa Island, the place usually we play sand. When we reached the Bus Interchange, the queue for Sentosa Bus was very long, almost reached the MRT station ... and half of the queue was not in single layer, it was double or even triple. We couldn't imagine how long we should wait for our turn.

How about catching a taxi? Not a very good idea, because we saw from the bus that the traffic to Sentosa gate was quite bad.

How about walking? Hmmm...
It was about 2 pm, quite hot, ... but ... Ok, let's try ...
So we crossed the road (again, bc we came from the bus stop opposite the bus interchange), walked through Vivo City, almost reached the bridge ...

... and ... ta da ...

There was a Sentosa staff "guarding" the bridge. He told us that currently walk-in to Sentosa Island is not allowed, regarding some constructions on the way. He asked us to catch the Sentosa Bus at the bus interchange .... No, thank you ...

Then we decided to catch a taxi ... but the man again told us to go to taxi stand, he didn't allow us to get taxi right over there, where we were... Oh, No ... The nearest taxi stand is at Vivo City and there was a long queue as well (we've passed it)..
*sigh*

We had no other option. We headed back to where we came from .... but we kept looking backward ... not for a long time, there was a taxi coming from Sentosa Island ... we catched it, told the driver that our destination was Sentosa Island ... and the taxi driver just made a U-turn not far from where we catched it ... :D

Whew! Finally ... we could play with the sand again ...
HURRAY !!
