We booked a half-day local tour to save ourselves from too much riding. 330 THB, or approx SGD12 – things are really inexpensive here in Thailand!

Deeply saddened by the passing of Mr S R Nathan, our sixth and longest running president, last evening. He passed away peacefully at the Singapore General Hospital on 22 Aug 2016, surrounded by family and loved ones, three weeks after suffering a 2nd stroke in two years.

I got my Class 2B License!

Yeah! After 3 months and 4 days, passed on my first attempt! Just got home after a gruelling day. Completed the mandatory Expressway Familiarisation Course and had to wait for quite a while for license application (long queue at TP office). But in any case, FINALLY!!…. hahah…

Actually, passing rate today was quite high – 39 passed in the class of about 50 people. That’s almost 80% of the class!

Can’t wait to go bike shopping now!
