Singapore Snapshots

After our trip to Beijing, Rolly and I had three months to put our feet up before flying again for Honeymoon Number 2. :) This time, we went to Singapore.

Singapore is probably one of the nicest places to go to this side of the globe. It’s very clean, no trash on the streets. We did not see sidewalk vendors around, no stray animals wandering off. The transport system is also traveler-friendly. You can get lost in the island and still easily find your way back. Singapore is small, so you can go from one tourist destination to the next quickly and without difficulty. For lazy laid-back vacationers like Rolly and I, SG is “the place to be.” :)

The highlight of our SG experience was probably our day in Universal Studios.  Being kids-at-heart, we looked forward to the adrenalin rush we knew the theme park’s adult rides would bring (but not the extreme ones for me, my liking for “scream machines” has a limit!).



Battlestar Galactica: Human vs. Cyclon

Can you believe I survived this monstrous ride? Battlestar Galactica is the world's tallest duelling roller coaster!  It took hours and hours for Rolly to convince me, but I gave in eventually. I thought I already died after the ride!

It was a relief to see the characters of Sesame Street afterwards. :)  How nostalgic!  I remember my kiddo days when I was glued to the TV singing "Sunny day, sweepin' the clouds away... On my way to where the air is sweet! Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street..."


We saw Ernie, Cookie Monster, Elmo, Big Bird, Abby Cadabby, Grover, and Bert! :)

USS also brings to life several characters from famous movies and cartoons! We met some robots from the Transformers, Woodie Woodpecker and his wife, Rick O'Connell and Evie Carnahan of The Mummy, Alex, Gloria, and The Penguins from Madagascar, Pinnochio, and Marilyn Monroe, among others. :)



Aside from Universal Studios, Rolly and I also went to Gardens by the Bay...

... and Singapore Zoo.


There was another thing that will not make me forget our Singapore trip.  It was here that I experienced zip line for the first time! :)  At Megazip Adventure Park, the zip wire was over 450 meters long and 72 meters above sea level. I was so frightened my blood ran cold, but I did it!


We also went to see SG Flyer,the world's second tallest Ferris Wheel next to Nevada's High Roller, and Songs of the Sea, an awesome multimedia show at Siloso Beach in Sentosa.



So there you go, a roundup of our Singapore snapshots! :) :) :)


Cheers,
