Travel makes us happy but when was the last time you traveled? Seems like ages ago right? All our travel plans back in 2020 were put on hold. The first quarter of 2021 does not look too promising either but I really hope the situation will improve tremendously by the time we hit the second half of this year. Traveling helps us experience life in different ways. There is only so much the internet can […]
We travel to Singapore at least once or twice annually. During our past visits to Singapore, we always stay in the city center but this time we decided to stay in Sentosa itself, The State of Fun; Asia’s leading leisure destination and Singapore’s premier island resort getaway. Nestled in the lush greenery of Sentosa Island and the only hotel located on Singapore’s beachfront… Shangri-La’s Rasa Sentosa Resort & Spa Address 101 Siloso Road, Sentosa, 098970, Singapore Tel (65) 6275 0100 […]
We were in Singapore recently for the holidays. We spent our first 3 days in Singapore staying in Sentosa before switching to another hotel in the city. We stayed in Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa Resort & Spa. It is walking distance to our favourite spot – the Skyline Luge, situated on the Imbiah Lookout cluster. We first rode on the Luge and Skyride at Sentosa Singapore back in 2010 when Ethan was 3 years old. Back […]
During our recent trip to Singapore, we took the opportunity to bring the boys for the Singapore River Night Cruise. Ethan has been on this cruise before but it was the Day Cruise. This is the boys’ first time on a night cruise. It wasn’t in our plan to go for the cruise actually but as we were taking a leisurely stroll, the boys saw the boat and requested to ride on it. Singapore River […]
We’ve been to Singapore numerous times but have never been to their S.E.A Aquarium until last week. Our priority is always Universal Studio Singapore first and often by the time we are done with USS, we won’t have time for the aquarium anymore. We almost missed the aquarium again last weekend as we went to USS again as usual but this time we made sure to leave a couple of hours earlier so we can […]
We were in Singapore over the long weekend recently. We chose to stay at Hotel Jen Tanglin, a newly renovated property that exudes modern functional design concept. This fresh and fully renovated hotel has just celebrated its official reopening barely a month ago and is already a favourite to all “Jeneration” of travellers. Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore, a new hotel brand under Shangri-La International Management Limited has undergone an extensive SGD45 million makeover to transition from Traders Hotel Singapore. It is designed […]
We went to the airport early the other day so we had a lot of time to kill before boarding. We were at T2 @ Changi Airport and there are many cute monkeys to welcome the Lunar New Year. These monkeys are so cute and cheerful. Ayden kept asking me how come these monkeys eat PAU and not bananas. Darling told him those are not pau but peach. Is it? I thought those are birthday […]
We brought Ethan to Universal Studio in Singapore for the very first time when he was 3 years old. He did not need a ticket to enter then as kids under the age of four enters for free. Here is our write up on that: 1) Ethan’s first time in USS We went again when Ethan was 5 year old. This time he needed a ticket to enter and this time he can ride on more […]
Hello! We just got back from a fun-filled 4D/3N holiday in Johor and Singapore. We stayed at Pulai Springs Resort the entire time and drove to Singapore on our third day and return to Johor on the same day. We were nervous initially as we have always flown into Singapore, never once took the bus or train what more driving in but we decided to conquer our fear and try it. The only reason of us […]
After visiting our local zoo and seeing how sad all the caged monkeys and the rest of the animals are, we don’t really quite like zoos anymore until we came across Singapore Zoo. Their Orang Utans there are free-ranged and dangled freely on trees. All other animals have their own spacious enclosures and no one was in cages. Ethan especially loves the hippopotamus. He has never imagined a hippo to be so graceful until he […]
We went to Universal Studio Singapore again (read about our FIRST trip there two years ago here) and this time we enjoyed more as Ethan can ride most of the thrill rides compared to when he was 3 years old. Reunited with the cute Puss In Boots <3 This trip also marks the very first time Ethan rode on a rollercoaster! I was hesitant initially but he insisted that he is big enough for all […]
During our recent Singapore trip, we went to the Singapore Zoo on Day 2 for the much anticipated elephant ride. Never did it occurred to me that Ethan will end up feeding giraffes as well! We saw people feeding giraffes for a fee of $5. Ethan was curious and wanted to feed them too! >_< It scares the heck out of me seeing that super tall creature with their heads hovering above Ethan. But that […]
On our first night in Singapore, we were thankful that the weather is beautiful with no rain to make it possible for us to catch the much anticipated Crane Dance in Resort World Sentosa. We took the Angry Birds Cable Car to Sentosa. The show is scheduled at 9pm but tourists lingered around the area as early as 8pm! We went to take our seat at 8.45pm after having our dinner. At 9pm sharp, a burst of fireworks lit […]
One of the MUST go places in Singapore is the Sands SkyPark, Marina Bay. Marina Bay Sands, the world’s most expensive hotel, was officially opened in June 2010. Designed by the renowned architect Moshe Safdie, the three-towered hotel has over 2500 rooms, a casino, an indoor canal and a museum among other grand attractions. But the highlight of this luxury resort is its infinity pool on the roof of the boat-shaped ‘SkyPark’ perched atop the […]
After that horrifying experiencein the Night Safari the night before, we woke up early, fresh and ready to start the day with happy thoughts. Universal Studio Singapore In case you get lost. But seriously, you won’t! It’s all just a circle. Walk along the road and you’ll end up at the starting point. You won’t be able to get lost even if you wanted too! :P The weather was PERFECT! First stop – Guest Services […]
The first day we were in Singapore, we spent half a day resting in our hotel room. In the evening, we waited anxiously at the lobby of our hotel for the Fun Vee Hopper to take us to the Tourist Hub at the Singapore Flyer to validate our Night Safari ticket. After validating our tickets, they took us to the Night Safari… The Fun Vee Hopper that took us to the Night Safari and back […]
