A trip to Sentosa ....

Well, after almost more than half a day spent at the zoo, we brought the kids to Sentosa which is one of Singapore's 'expensive' getaway from the daily routine and bustling city life. My kids never been to Sentosa and since their cousin bro drove and not working, its a good opportunity for them to finally visit this place. Although I frequent the Genting Resort World for lunch (only lunch ah...nothing else....no casino...no gambling!) , it's really been a while since I stepped into the other parts of the island. And, I was astonished to see how much changes there!! Anyway, the only thing that was not changed was the bikini girls which are still there, either at the beach or private pools. :P
The Merlion Tower still standing proudly there. Well, I guess this attraction cannot be removed. Somehow, I find it not as tall as before or is it I grew taller ?
 My kids and I took the Skytower ride , which cost me S$30 for 1 adult and two kids. The ride was just another one of those typical sight-seeing cylinder shape which slowly ascended to the top. Anyway, we have a good view of Sentosa as well as nearby areas of Singapore.

The busting Singapore sea-liners .... Notice there was a water show display on top.

A view of Universal Studio  and the Sentosa Island , as well as nearby places in SG.

My kids having some fun time ...
 After the Skytower ride, my kid wanted to try the Skyride and luge, where you slowly slide down in a small vehicle like a go-cart but of course, its children friendly and no motor. LOL.... After the trip down the slope, they will take a trip back by just seated on an open-air chair, about 20m high, to lift them back to their starting point. I backed out of the skyride and decided to let my wifey and sis in law to accompany them. :P Since it's an hour wait, I decided to have a short walk along the jungle trails.

Nice walk and so peaceful!
And, after I finished my walk ,I went to nearby Starbucks to order a Cinnamon dessert and an ice-blended dark mocha and enjoyed looking at the pretty ladies scenery around.


It was a tiring day but it was a fun day for my kids!

  3. Ahhhh!!!! The Merlion is still standing. Once, it was struck by lightning. That tar or whatever looked like something in a bread bowl. I thought you had some kind of soup.
