A Magical Coldplay: A Head Full of Dreams Tour in Singapore

Finally, after discovering the Henderson Waves and strolling around malls, the reason of us being in Singapore, A Magical Coldplay: A Head Full of Dreams Tour in Singapore.

It was sudden and unplanned. As if one of dream comes true. It never crossed in my mind that I would be fulfilling one of my dream, now.

So, bucket list: Watch Coldplay Concert Live, check!

Back then, I fell in love with “Yellow,” so hard. Since then, Coldplay became one of my favorite all time bands. All of their album are never disappointed me.

The first time I heard Chris Martin voice all over the Singapore national stadium singing A head full of dream as their first song that night, I felt goosebumps all over my body.

And when I heard them singing Yellow and Fix you, right in front of my eyes, I was totally speechless and freeze, literally.

The rest of the night felt magical, very unreal. It was surely an adventure of a lifetime. I was like in a rollercoaster of emotion. From thrill to pure bliss to heart flutters to tears.

What. An. Amazing. Concert. Ever.

Along the concert, I screamed, I sang, I jumped, I cried, and I freeze. The venue, the light, the laser, the xyloband, the crowd, the confetti, the balloon, the music, the song, the sound system, and the band itself were beyond perfect.

I may not be in the best spot as all I could see was Coldplay members as small as ants. But, being physically there in one place as them and sang along with them made me couldn’t ask for more at the moment.

Most of the time, I hardly recorded them with my handphone (like many others did), but I did record them clearly in my head as an unforgettable memory. I thought, THIS IS A MUST WATCH WITH MY OWN TWO EYES.

So here were some of moment before the magical concert begins.

 

 

Strolling Around The HarbourFront Centre and VivoCity Singapore

After enjoyed nature in Southern ridges, we strolled around the mall called HarbourFront Centre and VivoCity. It wasn’t intended, but because they attached to the Harbourfront station, I guess it was not wrong to do some window shopping.

As they all said, it was heaven to shop in Singapore. The price is quite tempted,pretty much lower than in Indonesia not to mention, added with some discount. Charles & Keith, Cotton On, Kate Spade, Sketchers, Adidas, Nike, Uniqlo, and many more.

The mall it selves is the same as in Indonesia. The most different things I observed were some of the worker, such as janitor or cleaner, a fast food crew, the cashier of some store was old. I mean they were grandma and grandpa, literally. I was very surprise.

So, when we ate in one of the restaurant, I hardly chewed and enjoyed mine. How can I, when an old grandpa was mopping the floor next to me (sobbing inside for they reminds me of my grandpa or grandma).

Quickly out of the restaurant, we strolled around. Lastly, we ended up in Garret Popcorn store to had some taste of their famous popcorn before we went back to hotel and prepared ourselves for the Coldplay Concert.

A Walk to Discover in Singapore: Henderson Waves

Singapore! When I heard Singapore, shopping and Merlion came first at my mind. Most of people I know went to Singapore for shopping or discovered Universal Studios then taking mandatory picture with the famous Merlion.

Rarely I heard of them visit Singapore to enjoy their garden, parks or nature. So, when my cousin told us that we will do our morning run in the Southern Ridges, especially in the Henderson Waves, I was beyond thrill.

As we arrived late at night in Changi Airport, we only had few hours to sleep. And that made us woke up late in the morning. We went straight to the Mountbatten MRT station and took the train (Circle line) headed to Harbourfront station.

It was work day, so the train was full of Singaporean who were going to work or school. It was so quite in the train (remind me of how noisy it will be if it was in Indonesia) and very comfortable being inside of the train. I was impressed.

From the Harbourfront station, we planned to hike through Marang trail. But, after some thinking, we decided not to because of many reasons. So I took my phone out and reserved Uber to take us to Henderson road.

Not long after, a long and high stairs welcomed us, a stairway to heaven if I may call it. Well, I might be over exaggerated. At the end of the stairs, green scenery and a mountain trail were ahead of us, along the way to the Henderson Waves.

Finally, Henderson Waves right in front of our eyes. As we were getting ready to run along the waves, we took some snapshot here and there.

Henderson waves is the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore which standing 36 meters above the Henderson road. It said as one of the best spots in Singapore to enjoy panoramic views of the city, harbour and the Southern Islands. And I couldn’t agree more.

It was so refreshing and relaxing. Fresh and nice air combined with beautiful scenery surely made us wanted to spend more time in here. Sadly, we had to force our self moved to another destination which is HarbourFront Centre and VivoCity also Coldplay Concert.

So, bye-bye waves. See you when I see you.
