The first good news of the week is that I've managed to bring the swell on my foot down. It still hurts, but not with the my-foot-is-going-to-burst pain. That can't be bad, but then again it isn't good news after all, since such a stupid incident should never have occured in the first place.
Couple of things I'd like to change in my life right now. First off would be my shitty attitude towards studying. I never study, honestly, and it's going to have to change if I'm going to score well at the end. Hell, I haven't even smelt
my holiday homework, I don't even know where it is. Am I going to do it? Maybe, I don't know.
I'm also well aware that my blog design sucks. Not that anyone has said anything, but if I don't like my own design, how would others? Well okay so it isn't that bad, but it's a little to...how to describe it...poser? for my liking. Doesn't reflect myself at all. So yeah, if I manage to drag my lazy ass off do actually do something....
On another note, today is Fathers' Day! Went to church in the morning, headed off for lunch after that. We were supposed to go to some hotel restaurant for a buffet lunch or something, but we hadn't made any reservations and the place was packed. So, my dad originally wanted to go have steamboat buffet over at Marina South, but as you should know, it was closed and we ended up eating just normal hawker food over there. Not that it really mattered, of course, but that isn't what I want to talk about here. Now, even if you've been to Marina South for steamboat before, most of you wouldn't have noticed the new pier all the way at the end as you'd have to take a right turn instead of a left. Anyway, back to the pier itself. It's a new one, a relocation of the closed pier at Collyer Quay. Extremely idyllic, fantastic scenery, as you can attest from the viewing gallery they built on the top floor. Some photos:
A pic of the outside of the pier itself. Pretty cool architecture, if you ask me.
Going in just a bit, we have the arrival/ departure/ waiting areas

Viewing gallery on the 3rd floor! Didn't capture all of it though.

One of the pathways. I realise that I'd forgotten to take pics of all the boats moored in the pier themselves =( Well I guess you'll have to make do.
If you turn behind, you can see the city skyline!
The ring is the end of the single road leading to this place.

The view's totally great, and coupled with the unceasing strong sea breeze you can feel from the viewing gallery, it's perfect. For what I'll leave it to you to decide =D
