The next day we had breakfast at a food court just beside our hotel and then Javi went to play at the hotel playground.
We then took our baths and made our way to Orchard to meet up with Ariel. At Orchard we got to see Darth Vader hehe.
Then we went inside the Apple store at Orchard.
Ariel treated us to lunch at Song Fa Bak Kut Teh at The Centerpoint. It was so yummy, even Javi ate so much! I think he finished a full bowl of rice all by himself!
After eating lunch, we went to Gate 3 of the F1 track (rode the MRT at Somerset station and then went down at City Hall station). Whiled away time at Raffles City and saw these photo exhibit. Dyan palang kinilig na ko hahaha!
We entered gate 3 of Zone 4 because we only got Zone 4 walk-about tickets on race day.
When we got inside, we were just in time for the Ferrari Challenge. Apparently there are two pre-races before the F1 grand prix race. Javi enjoyed watching the cars zooming past us.

The Porsche race was delayed for 30 minutes.
|This was infront of the Esplanade|
During the race we transferred places because we wanted to scout where to watch during the F1 race. We went across the Espalanade which was also near the food stalls.
1 - Ferrari race/ F1 race
2 - Porsche race
3 - Porsche race
4 - parade of drivers
Unfortunately, it rained just before the race started. I'm thanking God, we were seated beside a Pinay, #TitasofManila, because she held the umbrella beside us so that Javi won't get wet, she lent us her jacket when the hard rain stopped but Javi still needed to be covered. I would have had a very hard time carrying him (because he fell asleep before the race started) if it weren't for that Tita. So thank you very much, Tita! We were standing up the whole time we were watching. When I was getting tired, I left the viewing area and tried bringing Javi to the area where we could sit down comfortably. I had to change his shirt because he was soaking wet with sweat because it was so humid! So yeah it woke him up. He insisted to go back to the viewing deck to watch the race afterwards.
|haha sorry had to put it here to commemorate this day|
So yes, we didn't even see the two Ferraris at our corner. Good thing there were practice laps so that time we saw them. But during the race, we didn't even see the cars! (They crashed on the first corner!)
Umuwi man kaming talunan, masaya pa rin coz we got to experience the race. Next time we'll save up so that we can watch the qualifying session as well.
The next day (our last day in SG), we didn't really have anything in our agenda. We just had lunch with Ariel at Bugis.
