Waste of time
I went to Frank Brothers @ Esplanade last Saturday. We wanted to repair the spoilt bow but the repairman is overseas. So we went to Grammercy @ Paya Lebar. We took a bus after alighting the MRT and we alighted from the bus one stop earlier. We walked to the next bus stop where the Grammercy is. There, the repairman offered to fix the bow @ $70, which is quite cheap to me. Then I decided that I will be buying three $80 french bass bows.
For the new bows, a case is needed. However, Grammercy doesn't have a suitable bow case, so we were recommended to go to Synwin @ Tanjong Katong Complex. We took bus 40 as instructed and we alighted at City Plaza (which somehow the person at Grammercy mentioned while explaining how to reach Tanjong Katong Complex). We couldn't find Synwin @ City Plaza, so we went to see the bus route of bus 40.
We realised that bus 40 goes on a loop route, and we found Tanjong Katong Complex as one of its stops, but that stop is very far away from where we are. However, since it's a loop, we decided to take the bus to Aljunied MRT and crossed the road to take bus 40 again. When we reached Tanjong Katong Complex and found Synwin, we were quite glad! Finally!
We saw Chinese instruments and White-coloured Double Bass inside! Cool! Then Tony bought a case that costs $37.45 for himself, and I will be buying that too. When we came out of the complex, we found out that, OMG, Tanjong Katong Complex is just diagonally opposite of City Plaza! Zzzz, LOL!
Sianz. I did my English Oral Diagnostic three weekends ago, i.e. 12-13 Jan. Until now I still haven't presented. Zzzz.
