Universal Studios Singapore

When we visited Singapore last August 2012, we never knew we will be visiting many places at once because in Universal Studios Singapore, the theme park was divided into 7 themed zones. Somehow, we felt we were able to visit Hollywood, Madagascar, Egypt (The Mummy), The Lost World, and even Far Far Away Land :). 

Universal Studios Singapore is the second theme park in Asia and the first in South East Asia. Of course, being Singapore's neighboring country, we did not let our trip end without experiencing Universal Studios Singapore--the best excuse to act like a kid again mwahaha :)) But first things to get there?

How to get there? The most convenient way to get there is via MRT. Alight at Harbour Front Station and walk towards 3rd floor of Vivo City Shopping Mall. Then, ride the Sentosa Express (SGD 3.50 flat rate) and go down at Water Front Station. The train operates from 7 am to 12 mn daily while the Universal Studios itself operates from  10 am to 7 pm only.

The Majestic Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

Jaw drop, wide eyes, raised eyebrows and big smile! That's basically how I looked like after seeing the majestic Marina Bay Sands in Singapore right in front of me--with matching goosebumps too! Sounds exaggerated? But that's the truth! haha. Before, I only see pictures of my Jet setter friends at the top of the building with their lovely infinity pool, spectacular skyline and grand infrastructure photos and it made me want to visit SG for a long long time. 
First thing we did was to explore the Marina Bay Sands Mall. It's a nice place to stroll because you'll see a lot of interesting things like the Sampan Ride. Historically speaking, sampan is the mode of transportation way back in  1800s and it was used for fishing and transporting goods. Now, these boats were replicated so people of today can still experience riding it, this time, along the canal of The Shoppes at the Marina Bay Sands for SGD 10 per person. The sampan ride is suitable for children above 2 years old and it operates daily from 11:30 am until 8:30 pm. You'll have an opportunity to make a wish once you circle the Rain Oculus which gushes 22,000 liters of water per minute from 2 storeys above.

Power Walk: From Clarke Quay to Merlion Park

It is a known fact that walking is the best form of exercise and is also the best way to help Mother nature reduce pollution. Walking is also our best bet to cut your transportation cost when you travel abroad. Yes, it can be tiring and an MRT ride or Taxi can be very tempting but as I always say, strolling along a foreign city is not something you do everyday so DON'T BE LAZY :) and burn those carbs you ate at Wee Nam Kee, Singapore haha.

Clarke Quay and the archetypal symbol of Singapore, the Merlion is one of the most popular tourist spots in their country. Clarke Quay is known for its night life bars usually Irish and British Pubs (with LIVE football coverage!) full of expats while the Merlion is known for its romantic vibe and cover photo worthy for your Facebook account. If you didn't go to the Merlion at the very least, then you're trip to Singapore was worthless! whahahaha just kidding :)

I wanna be a billionaire so freakin bad

"I wanna be a billionaire sooo freakin baaad! Buy all the things I've never haaad!" I was singing this song while walking the streets of Orchard Road, Singapore. It's a district full of luxury shops and area for everything that shimmers in our eyes. According to the official website of Orchard Road, it is "a great street" because I believe almost all luxury brands can be found in Orchard Road from Louis Vuitton, Channel, Tory Burch, Marc Jacobs, Hermes, Gucci, Bvulgari and the list goes on.
