Checked out a few new places by chance. We were going bored out of our minds cooped at home anyway and at least in a mall you can walk a bit. It seems the air is healthier in a mall because they have stronger air-conditioning and a larger space. At home the smell of smoke easily seeps in, but in a mall I don’t get that.
It’s better to take the MRT to Marina Square than to drive. If you park you have to walk quite a distance to get into the mall as it’s still undergoing renovation I think. Spotted another branch of St Marc Cafe, but didn’t feel like having anything sweet or sandwiches filled with too much mayo. Very tasty but I felt a bit sick after the last time I had sweet mayo filled egg sandwiches for dinner. Just a tip. The sandwiches are cold and if you like you can request that they heat them up. I like that there’s free iced water though and at a time like this we truly need it. I constantly feel parched with the dusty air. And it’s good to drink more water to flush out the toxins we’re breathing in.
Suntec City, Marina Square, Millenia Walk and the Esplanade in the north are all conveniently linked, either by underground malls or covered walkways. If you don’t mind a bit of a walk, the Marina Bay Sands can be reached from the northern half by walking south on the Helix Bridge, which has several viewing platforms overlooking the bay.
