Uniquely Singapore – II


*be warned: super long post with too many photos*

half of my 2nd day in singapore was spent in sentosa 🙂 being a real tourist and with a big camera u can bet that i snapped, snapped and snapped all the way…. and wayyyyyyyy too many photos till i had difficulty to choose which of them to post here T_T

so first thing first. breakfast!!

had breakfast at the observation deck restaurant on top of the hotel i stayed where diners can have 360 degree view of the city. coolness!!

it's like in the KL tower but with dining tables, foods and all. u have to wait at the lower level before u are called for ur table....

there are few ways to go to sentosa. either by ur own car, taxi, bus, cable car or the monorail. but before that u have to go to the harbour front station (we opted for MRT to go there) then from there u can choose ur own package of ‘adventure’ at the island which includes ur return modes of transportation and the thing that u want to ‘play’ or see all in one single card. total cost of my package was SGD33.90 after 30% discount which valid til 31st March only. heheheee… i went at the right time for sentosa but the wrong time for shopping cos March wasnt the mega sales season T_T

we took MRT to Dhoby Ghaut MRT station then from there we hoped into a different train to Harbour Front station.

btw, Dhoby Ghaut sounds like ‘dobi goat’. u know the sabun buku pencuci dobi? and kambing?

my ticket to the fun sentosa tour :-) my package was a 3 attractions + 1 adventure experience. but later i added extra one adventure :p

after the Merlion, the park, a light lunch and the wishing trees (i didnt wish for anything though cos i x believe trees can make them come true) we proceeded to the Images of Singapore. it’s a museum. before u start ur journey inside the museum u will be greeted by an awesome 3D presenter and four narrators whom u thought were posters until they start talking. kewl!!

can u see the ghost?! *spooky music on*
