On the 16th July 2011, Kevin and Gwyn were officially bromptified. We're truly humbled to be a part of the Brompton community. Introducing, our yet to be named M6R Bromptons in Sage Green and Raw Lacquer.
Diginexx, along Lavender Street is the only place in Singapore to get your Bromptons.
Eager to get going and still burning from the existing hunger to cycle, we opted to skip driving and hit the road straight with our new rides. From Lavender Street, we slowly navigated our way home (Upper Thomson). Along the way, we stopped by a soya bean stall in Potong Pasir. If you haven't tried it, you should. It has got one of the smoothest soya bean curds that we have ever tried.
The compactness and portability of the Brompton were easily put to good use.
From Potong Pasir, we made our way to Bishan via the Kallang Bishan PCN. This is certainly not one of the most "well connected" PCNs available. There are a couple of traffic junctions to cross and a overhead bridge that you have to cross along Braddell Road. We were however very thankful for the weather. There were signs of a thunderstorm, but there was not a single drop of rain. It was like God knew we were cycling our way home.
Here is us getting a couple of snaps along the Bishan PCN. Someone looks very pleased with her new ride.
We made it back home after about an hour's ride. Check point- Mama Shop for 100 plus. An interesting thing about the Brompton is how the back wheel manages to slide its way forward to allow the bike to come to a stationary stop. And I must emphasis again how effortless it is to slide the back wheel forward.
And for the clean freak, it will be pleasing to note that once folded, the two wheels do not have contact with the ground! Simple yet ingenious if you ask me.
Kevin: Where should we go for dinner?
Gwyn: Let's cycle somewhere for dinner?
Kevin: Sin Ming?
Gwyn: New Ubin Seafood?
15 mins post per above conversation, we found ourselves seated comfortably, bromptons neatly tucked under the dining table, awaiting our dinner orders.
Dinner was quite good. The next time you happen to be there, try out their Ubin Bee Hoon. It's pretty good.
