Yay! Finally getting around to blogging about the trip 6 months later! Better late than never wtf.
Went to the land of Merlion with Jascinta, Jeffrey and Sharon back in March and everything was painfully expensive. But we had fun! And I have pictures to prove it! :D
(Warning: 88 photos ahead)
Day 1 was spent exploring the Resorts World Casino and the Sentosa beach area.
#1 Hello! With the famous USS globe.
#2 This is Sharon, my partner for the day as the other two has left us to go dating at the Aquarium.
#3 Casino. We don’t gamble so not much of an attraction to us.
#4 Just me being a tourist.
#5 Sentosa Merlion!
#9 None of us was dressed for the beach. :(
#10 The girls!
Abrupt end to the day because there are no more pictures and I can’t remember what else we did as it happened half a year ago. Yay. Awesome blogger.
Day 2 was Universal Studios Singapore day! I love theme parks! Woo!
#11 Poor Jeff had to be the photographer.
#13 Jascinta & Jeffrey. :)
#14 Sharon & I.
#15 Crazy queue while waiting for the theme park to open.
#16 And we’re in!
#18 Didn’t wanna queue for a photo so here’s a random dude with the Monster of Frankenstein.
#19 Group photo!
#20 New York.
#21 Here’s us rushing off to the roller coaster so that we wouldn’t have to queue. Happy to report that we managed to go on it twice with zero queue. Whee!
#22 Ancient Egypt!
#23 Even had time to take touristy shots as there was no line for the Revenge of the Mummy ride.
More random theme park shots:
#29 Going in for the ride!
#30 I was deeply, deeply unhappy about the Battlestar Galactica not being operational. So I took a picture with it as consolation. :(
#31 It was THE ONE RIDE I was most looking forward to. *sad face*
#32 Going into the Lost World.
#33 T-Rex fossil in the Discovery Food Court. I had the famous Singapore Hainanese Chicken Rice which was not too bad, especially judging by normal theme park food standards.
#34 Witnessed a live dinosaur! Gasp!
#35 WaterWorld show.
#36 We then walked far far away to reach Far Far Away!
#37 Here we are!
#38 I like the deco in this part of the theme park. :)
#39 Us with the Fairy Godmother!
#43 Entrance to the Donkey Live Show. Attractions in this part of the park is very very tame.
#44 The castle!
#46 Here’s me, posing for a photo.
#47 Here’s Sharon, taking said posed photo.
#48 Stinky onion carriage.
#49 Enchanted Airways.
#50 Very reassuring sign.
#51 And we’re off to Madagascar!
#52 If you say so…
#53 Here’s King Julien’s Beach Party-Go-Round.
#54 Sharon with Marty.
#55 I was with the Penguins.
#56 Selfie while waiting for the ride to start.
#57 Jeffrey with King Julien? and Jascinta with Melman.
#58 Skipper & I!
#59 Next up: Sesame Street in New York.
#60 L-R: Jeff, Cookie Monster, Sharon, Big Bird, Jas, and Oscar The Grouch (had to Google who he is since I have never watched Sesame Street wtf).
#61 Elmo’s head got cut off.
#62 Our legs got cut off.
Off to Hollywood!
#64 Population: Glamorous.
#65 Let’s try that again. Population: Glamorous!
#69 Monster Rock!
#70 Yes yes, lens not wide enough to capture everything so it’s either I sacrifice the head or our legs. I refuse to make the choice so you get both photos.
#73 Po bullying me. -_- All I did was say bye to him.
#76 Checked out Orchard Road at night.
End of a fun and tiring day!
#77 En route to Chinatown!
#78 Too early so nothing opened yet.
#79 No idea what temple this is but looked quite nice from the outside.
#80 Maxwell Road Hawker Centre is apparently famous for their various hawker fare. Again, we were too early so most stalls have not opened yet. Maybe they only start operating at noon?
#81 This is the famous porridge stall with an insane queue. A huge part of the queue is also thanks to how slowly the stall proprietors work. Totally not worth queuing up for an hour for. -_- I have had better.
#82 This is the lamest lamest lamest “museum” ever in the history of lame museums. The “artifacts” are basically all in the tiny display you see in the photo. Yeap, in that tiny rectangular space. That’s it.
#83 Stalls have opened after our breakfast. Didn’t buy anything since they’re all just to cheat ang moh tourists wtf.
#84 Random MRT doodles.
#85 Went to the casino in Marina Bay Sands where Sharon & I lost $20 and drank lots of bottled waters because bottled waters in Singapore are not cheap (but we are).
#86 Checked out Bugis Street.
#87 Random chocolate lava cake with ice-cream after lunch.
#88 Changi Airport deco!
And that’s all for my quick Singapore getaway! It’s great to travel with awesome travel buddies. :)
