Singapore Day 2, 3 & 4: Universal Studios & Goodbye

Let’s continue with my Singapore trip.

On day 2, we took the MRT to Chinatown in the morning. A less than 10 minutes walk brought us to Maxwell Road Food Centre for breakfast. Click the link to see what I ate.

After breakfast, we ride to HarbourFront MRT which connects to VivoCity. From VivoCity, we took the Sentosa Express S$4 to Sentosa Island. Our target? Universal Studios of course! Actually there are counters at VivoCity for you to buy Universal Studios tickets but they don’t sell senior ticket.

Queue for the tickets was fairly long at Universal Studios but they move quickly. Adult entrance ticket cost S$74 while senior only pay S$36.

I went into this Sesame Street shop and the first purchase was made. Kekeke

Elmo and Oscar Grouch drinking bottle. My sis bought Oscar. I didn’t buy any… was contemplating but in the end decide not to. When your purchase this drinking bottle, the first drink is free.

Transformer The Ride @ Universal Studio, Singapore
That Transformer ride… which I chicken out because I had a really nervous time at Jurassic Park (earlier on).

Shrek 4D Adventure @ Universal Studio, Singapore
We went for this Shrek 4D Adventure. It was just mediocre for me. More for kids I guess.

Princess Fiona and Shrek. I took photo with them too. Hahaha

Ship From Madagascar @ Universal Studio, Singapore
The ship from Madagascar. We just walk pass this section.

By this time, we were totally spent BUT shopping is a must. We bought quite a lot of souvenirs. ๐Ÿ™‚ We arrived at Universal Studio, Singapore at 11am and left at 5.30pm, took 3 rides/attractions. That’s 6.5 hours. Ok la.

After that we returned to VivoCity by Sentosa Express. Had the most awful dinner at Food Republic, VivoCity. After dinner, we went window shopping (also at VivoCity) before heading back to our hostel.

On day 3, we had a yummylicious breakfast at Havelock Road Cooked Food Centre near Tiong Bahru MRT. Click the link to see what we ate. After brekkie, we head to Orchard Road for shopping. We visited Takashimaya, Ladurรฉe, Robinsons and Tangs. I didn’t take any photos because by this time I was really really really tired. The hand bag I used to carry my DSLR has thin strap and that’s what was weighing me down. We had to cut short our shopping and head back to hostel to rest. Our dinner was at Golden Mile Food Centre again. I had wan tan mee and the fried dumpling was so delicious. Too bad I forgot to take photo.

Day 4, the last day of our trip… we went to Golden Mile Food Centre again!?! to try out Fishball Story. Click the link to read my review. After breakfast, we checkout of the hostel and took taxi to Star Vista (cost S$12.44), the departing point for our ride home via First Coach. The road back to Subang were quite jam. We reached Subang Parade about 6 hours plus later.

That’s it for my Singapore trip. My most favorite thing that I did in Singapore? Visit all those hawker stalls. ๐Ÿ˜› Universal Studios was enjoyable. The only time you realized it’s a school holiday in Singapore is the amount of kids at Universal Studios. I think I’ll fly to Singapore next time. Taking the bus is too taxing.

    I opted to fly from Spore to Ipoh instead of taking the bus, and back also. Yes, more expensive but the time saved for other things was very well worth it.

    I have not been to Universal Studios in Sentosa. My sister said there’s a good Msian food street in the studios. Did you check it out?

    Your post on Spore Chinatown – Golden Mile, Havelock Road brings back good memories of my first time in Spore, 1980,

    Oh! You didn’t take the Transformer ride? My brother said it’s good. I have not visited Universal Studios yet. Maybe one day but definitely not in the near future with the current exchange rate. Damn Najib!!
