シンガポール旅行記 8/19②

リージェントなのだがJTBのパンフレットによればシンガポールのメインストリートであるオーチャードより徒歩5分のホテルとなっているが、実際はMRTの出口から15~20分ほどかかる。

今日のディナーはシティ・ホールのチャイムスにある「レイガーデン」なので時間短縮の為に初めてタクシーを使うことに。

シンガポールはタクシーが安いと聞いていたし、安心出来るとのことなのだがリージェントからチャイムスまでメーター5.9㌦+加算料金3㌦の8.9㌦だった。

最初はメーターだけ見て6㌦払ってお釣りを貰おうと思ったら、8.9㌦と言う。思わずメーターと違うと言いそうになったが、タクシーの後部座席左側の窓に加算料金の説明が書いてあって、ビジネスアワーの追加やEBR(日本の高速道路のETCゲートのようなものが市内の中心部に入るときにあって、そこを通ると料金が発生する)追加料金などで締めて3㌦の追加が発生していた。

もちろん英語でしか書いていないので通常の日本人観光客なら気が付かず見落とすのでは?てっきりボッタくりのタクシーに乗ってしまったかと思った。

さて、チャイムスに着いたのだが、持参した「地球の歩き方 05~06版」には「160年前に建てられた修道院が前身でレストランやバー、ショップが入った複合施設として注目を集め」ており「洗練された店揃いで要チェック」となっていたが、正面入口から入って一番左側に並んでいる店舗の最初が「牛角」と日本の焼肉のチェーン店に変わっていた。

ガイドには「タン・タン・デリ・バー」とバーだったがたった1年で結構店舗が様変わりしていた。それにしても、いきなり牛角とは・・・なんだかありがたみがないと言うか安っぽくなった気がして残念。

このレイガーデンはJCBプラザのシンガポールで予約をしておいた。JCBでは会員向けのスペシャルメニューがあり、そこで一人65㌦のメニューがあった。6人で行くのだが子供が3人いるのでなどと相談していたら4人用だと大人4人でもお腹が一杯になるとのことなので、4人用を頼んで足らなければ追加した方が良いのではということになった。

但し、北京ダックは4人用だと半羽だとのこと。半羽だと6人で行った場合、一人あたり2切れほどにしかならないと店の人に確認してもらって一羽に変えてもらい、当日デザート等を増やすことにした。

このあたりは自分で電話予約しても英語特に中国なまりの英語で話されても中々理解出来ないし、こちらの聞きたいことが通じるか不安だったのでJCBプラザに行って色々代わりに質問してもらえたので助かった。

ただ、今から思うと北京ダックだけ予約して後は点心中心のメニューにした方がこの店の真髄が味わえたかも。

お腹も膨れて、レイガーデンから先日行ったサンティック・シティ・モールに向かう。

前回行けなかったファウンテン・オブ・ウエルス(噴水)を見に行く、その後カルフールに行き前回の買物で買えなかったパクテー(骨肉茶)などをお土産用に購入。

ここでも何だカンダで遅くなり、ここからホテルまでタクシーで戻った。

ちなみに日本語的に「リージェント・ホテル」と言っても最初は分ってもらえず、「ジェント?」と聞き返された。

そう言えば名古屋の地下鉄で外国人に「おおさかの」と聞かれて、「大阪?」と聞き返すと「No,No」、2~3回聞き直して「大須観音」と言うのが分った。

それと同じで日本語風に現地のホテルの名前を言っても、向こうには全然違う風に聞こえるのだろうな。

ホテルに戻ったのが22:00頃。今日が最後のシンガポールでの宿泊。せっかくのリージェントが1泊とは実にもったいなかった。

Tucked away in our timberland for you subconscious is an idyllic vision. We see ourselves on a long trip that timberland 6 inch spans the continent. We are traveling by train. Out timberland hiking boots windows, we drink in the passing scene of cars on nearby highways, of children timberland shoe company waving at a crossing, of cattle grazing on a distant timberland boots hillside, of smoke pouring from a power plant, of row upon row of corn and wheat, of flatlands and timberland wheat shoes valleys, of mountains and rolling classic 3 eye timberland boat hillsides, of city skylines and village halls.But uppermost in our black timberland boots minds is the final destination. On a certain cheap timberland boots day at a certain hour, we will pull into the station. Bands will be playing and flags discount timberland boots waving. Once we get there, so many wonderful timberland winter boots dreams will come true and the pieces of our lives will fit together like a completed jigsaw puzzle. How restlessly we pace the aisles, womens timberland boot the minutes for loitering --waiting, waiting, waiting for the station.But uppermost in our timberland shoes store minds is the final destination. On a certain day at a certain hour, we will pull into the station. Bands will be playing and timberland eye boat flags waving. http://www.timberland4you.co.uk/sitemap.html

One Sunday womens timberland boots morning, I was told that someone was waiting for me in timberland 6 boots office. The young person who answered the rectory timberland boots door said that it was "the woman who said she left all the notes." When I saw her mens timberland boots I was shocked, since I immediately recognized her from church but had no timberland boots outlet idea that it was she who wrote the notes. She was sitting in a chair in timberland roll top boots office with her hands folded in her lap. Her head was bowed and when she raised white timberland boots it to look at me, she could barely smile without pain. Her face was disfigured, and timberland classic boat skin so tight from surgical procedures that smiling or laughing was very difficult for her timberland kids waterproof boots . She had suffered terribly from treatment to remove the growths timberland shoes that had so marred her face. We chatted for a while that Sunday morning and agreed to meet for timberland womens premium boots lunch later that week. As it turned out we went to lunch several timberland boots women times, and she always wore a hat during the meal. I think that treatments of some timberland shoe company sort had caused a lot of her hair to fall out. We shared things about our lives. I told her about my women timberland shoes schooling and growing up. She told me that she had worked for timberland 6 inch years for an insurance company. She never mentioned family, and I did not ask. I have thought about her timberland mens custom often over the years and how she struggled in a society that places an incredible premium on looks, class, wealth and all the other fineries of life. She suffered from a disfigurement that cannot be made to look attractive. I know that her condition black timberland boots hurt her deeply. http://www.timberland6inch.com/

There were timberland 6 inch sensitivity and a beauty to her that have nothing to do with timberland 6 inch boots looks. She was one to be listened to, whose words were so easy to take to timberland boots sale heart.I used to find notes left in the collection basket, beautiful timberland boots outlet notes about my homilies and about the writer's black timberland boots thoughts on the daily scriptural readings. The person who penned the notes mens timberland boots would add reflections to my thoughts and would always include some timberland pro boots quotes from poets and mystics he or she had white timberland boots read and remembered and loved. The notes fascinated black timberland shoes uk me. Here was someone immersed in a search for truth and beauty. Words had been cheap timberland boots treasured, words that were beautiful. And I felt as if the words timberland waterproof boots somehow delighted in being discovered, for they were obviously very generous to the as yet anonymous timberland work boots writer of the notes. And now this person was in turn learning the secret of sharing them. Beauty so shines when given away. The only truth that exists timberland hiking boots is, in that sense, free. http://www.timberland6inch.com/

Do not trouble yourself much to get new things whether clothes or women air max shoes friends Turn the old return to them. Things do not change; we change. Sell your clothes and keep your thoughts. Today we have higher nike air max white buildings and wider highways but shorter temperaments and narrower points of nike red air max 2009 view. http://www.sellnikeairmax.com/
