Surgery done and I can barely open my mouth still but I’m not in pain anymore and I’m so ready to give you the second Singapore post! Boy oh boy, am I ready! Are you? Well, I suppose there’s nothing you can do? Eep.
We’re going to Sentosa Island today and have some fun! We woke up and took a bus to Harbour Front Tower to ride the cable car to the island. Don’t worry, I’ll post a How To Survive Singapore and give you three days worth of activities!

From the cable car station, we took a bus to get to Resorts World Sentosa where you can see lots of restaurants and shops but we couldn’t find something that we wanted so we went to the Merlion Plaza and saw KFC, so we had lunch there.

Just a walk away from Resorts World is Universal Studios Singapore and S.E.A. Aquarium. We went to Universal first but because it was too hot and since my parents don’t really go on rides, we later on went to S.E.A. Aquarium to cool off. My brother and I then went ahead and left them after a few minutes to go on rides!
Obligatory photo with the famous Universal globe
It was the first week of May so Easter Eggs are still all over Universal Studios. Unfortunately, the wildest ride they had which is Battlestar Galactica (the red and blue rollercoaster in the photos above and below) wasn’t of service so I didn’t get to experience that.
There are seven sections in Universal Studios; Hollywood, New York, Sci-Fi City, Ancient Egypt, The Lost World, Far Far Away and Madagascar. Each sections have different themes in accordance to its name.
The Minions in Hollywood
The Sesame Street in New York
This ride doesn’t do well with people who react to strobe lights or sudden flashes because this is a 4D ride where you get to “experience” being in a transformer and fight evil. A couple of gigantic 3D screens is set up in front of you while your Autobot is trying to keep you alive.
The Transformers in Sci-Fi City
Entrance of Ancient Egypt
Revenge of The Mummy ride, my favorite and definitely not for the faint-hearted. The ride gives sudden drops and twists in the midst of total darkness which makes it more exciting because you won’t have time to prepare!
Dinosaurs in the Lost World
The castle from the Far Far Away Land
Shrek’s Swamp near the castle
Huge tree from Madagascar, a hanging skeleton from a crashed flight hanging from one of its branches.
Smile and wave, boys!
Various food shops in complete Madagascar theme.
Before entering the S.E.A. Aquarium, you get to watch a historic film on a ship and read various historical stories at the side.
One of the aquariums in S.E.A, this one has a shipwreck in it.
A cylindrical aquarium which had lots of Dory. 🙂
A diver with Easter Eggs in the biggest aquarium inside where lots of people can just sit and relax as if they were in a cinema, only that the gigantic screen is an aquarium!
At about 5 in the afternoon, we then proceeded to Siloso Beach to watch the Songs of the Sea. As much as I want to take pictures of the grand performance, a single photo can’t give justice as to how beautiful it was. However, I have filmed some of the highlights of the show and you can watch it below!
This is after a day’s worth of the island, you can get a free ride of the Sentosa Express from the island to Vivo City on your way home.
All in all, you need more than a couple of days to see all of Sentosa Island but a day in Universal and S.E.A plus an amazing show in Songs of the Sea will definitely leave you full of fun and exciting memories.
