Our First Date in Singapore

I happened to browse through our old photos and thought of blog about Clarke Quay since this place is sort of historical for my husband and I.

Dated about one and a half years ago, the first time my then-official-boyfriend came to Singapore, I didn't know where to take him. That time, Singapore seemed to offer lots of places of interest to visit and we thought of combing it one by one every time he visited me in Singapore. Weekend date in Orchard Road was definitely not an option since he doesn't really fancy shopping. I couldn't think any place of interest in Singapore, I decided to show him Clarke Quay and Boat Quay first because I went there few times already and I roughly knew how to get there since it's near my previous office in Raffles Place.

Clarke Quay and Boat Quay are very famous entertainment spots for tourists in Singapore and considered historical riverside quays in Singapore. Clarke Quay is situated upstream from the mouth of the Singapore River and Boat Quay. Although Clarke Quay and Boat Quay are better known for their nightclubs and pubs, but no, we didn't go there for clubbing. I don't drink and really hate noises.

In the end, our first 'proper' date in Singapore consisted of taking a tour around Clarke Quay and Boat Quay after the sun set. It was his first time there, so I guess I didn't do so bad in choosing the venue.

Unusual guest.

Not familiar with the eateries around Clarke Quay and since most of them were kind of pricey, we settled in BK Whopper Bar, which apparently only exists in Clarke Quay. A humongous burger was waiting for us.

I was surprised with my then-boyfriend's appetite for burgers.

Done with our supper or dinner (can't remember now), we decided to go back to Clarke Quay MRT Station and headed home.

So, this was the short story of how we spent our first date in Singapore. Not so romantic or fantastic but it's quite something.
