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.
Our Universal Studios entrance tickets.
The compulsory photo of Universal Studios globe.
This is Hollywood.
Still in Hollywood.
And then I fell in love with Sesame Street. Never a fan… but ouch how can I say no to the red fuzzy Elmo?
I went into this Sesame Street shop and the first purchase was made. Kekeke
Elmo, Cookie Monster and Ernie. Of course I took a photo with Elmo. 🙂
A cute ‘bus’ stall selling Sesame Street memorabilia.
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.
That Transformer ride… which I chicken out because I had a really nervous time at Jurassic Park (earlier on).
I guess Transformer fans will like this Optimus Prime and Bumblebee drinking bottle for their collection. Also first drink is free.
Roller coasters… walk faster.
Jurassic Park where I rode the Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure. The waiting in line was the most nervous time. The ride was thrilling and I got wet. We sat with a group of Korean junior students.
Walking towards Water World.
Water World… really spectacular. Love the actions! Must see ya. I sat at the wet zone and yes, you guess it. I was drenched.
Far Far Away Castle.
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
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. 🙂 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, Ladurée, 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. 😛 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,
Hi Dawn, yup more expensive travel by plane but save time lo and less tiring I think. No, did not check out Malaysian food street at the studios. Wah 1980 ar 🙂
LOL goes to show how old I am…dinosaur age 🙂
I’m old too. Most probably younger than you by few years only or who knows… maybe same age. Hehe
Oh! I missed your Singapore posts!! Let me read! 🙂
Wah! Day 2, 3 and 4 all in one post? If me, I will be having several posts for each day. LOL!
Hi Foong, ya ya…. you will write several posts for sure. 🙂
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!!
Ya la the exchange rate now so high. I almost didn’t make it to Singapore. Haha
