Right at the eastern tip of Singapore is Changi Village; the breeding ground of Ah Kuahs (or transvestites), a cool chill-out place called Charlie's Corner (uniquely owned by Charlie at a distinct corner of CV's food centre that serves great Fish & Chips) and the boarding jetty to hitch a ride to Pulau Ubin. It's a very laid back place; where the air smells of gasoline from dated bum boats lined by the seashores and aeroplanes flying pass the low raised skylines from the airport.

Strangely enough, I got a very special deal at the newly furbished Changi Village Le-Meridien Hotel. In some ways, the slick and clean hotel looked kind of out of place amongst the nostalgic landscape. For about $50 bucks we got a decent room for a girlie slumber and in time to pre-celebrate Yan's birthday. For $2 bucks each, we caught a 10 min bum boat sunset cruise over to Pulau Ubin for a sumptuous seafood dinner - kampong style. I'm not exaggerating when I say "kampong"... walked through some unpaved, unlit road to a wooden hut-like seafood restaurant and ordered a feast of crab, big mussels, fresh prawns and even kampong chicken! Food was good and we simply loved the nostalgic music playing off Gold 90.5FM. It was honestly, one of a kind.

We drunk ourselves to sleep and woke up playing Jinga (it was wild!) and Pictionary before checking out.
It was a uniquely different weekend. I only regret not swimming and soaking myself in a hot bubble bath.
