After touching down at the airport, R brought me to the railway platform to board a NSB train to the National Theatre Station in downtown Oslo. With two departing trains every hour, this is a comparatively cheaper way to travel (NOK 66) compared to the Flytoget Service (NOK 190).
After depositing my baggage at the hotel, R and I headed to the Cafe Cathedral within the Karl Johans Gate vicinity for breakfast. Since this was a Sunday, most of the shops in downtown Oslo were not opened for business.
In the afternoon, we did a fair bit of sight-seeing to cover areas like the Opera House, Aker Brygge as well as the Akershus Fortress where it housed a rather extensive Military Museum (free admission).
We arrived at R's apartment at the upmarket neighbourhood of Majorstuen in the evening. Dinner was self-catering Laksa noodles which needed to be shipped directly from Singapore. Needless to say, this was a nice dinner encounter full of ethnic flavours from our hometown. Oh yes, the sweet treats from Pascal were a delicious way to end the beautiful Sunday evening! 1 SGD = NOK 5.64
