Upon arrival, my childhood pal, Bernard, met me at the airport MacDonalds outlet. I was glad I was not tempted to buy a high-calorie meal while waiting for him. Anyway, I could not read most of the menu which was entirely in Chinese! In such circumstances, a picture does say a thousand words and they were calling out to me like Voldermore was to Harry Potter. I must also add that the staff there were extremely proactive and smiley. I certainly hope to see more of such great service back home in Singapore. No, I did not eat a thing from the outlet.
So I was whisked away in the family vehicle to their den while Bernard took a flight back to - Singapore for a business meeting. It is quite funny if you ask me now - he left the country upon my arrival. In the meantime, I was enjoying the sights along my chauffered journey to Regal Harbour where I will be staying for about 2 weeks!
There was only one word on my mind when I stepped out of the Buic and was met with huge a length of massive Roman columns that stretched for at least 400 metres on both sides - fortress.
