Rasa Sayang Trip Day 1: Sentosa Island, Singapura

Date: September 25

Location: Sentosa Island, Singapura

Day one officially began September 25th. With only a couple hours of sleep (including the three year old), we all woke up to have breakfast at the nearby Kopitiam, which is like their local foodcourt, selling different cuisines at affordable prices. We had breakfast here everyday so we got to try almost all it had to offer! I never failed to order Teh-O and Kopi-O coupled with a  Kaya Toast and two soft-boiled eggs, for only SG$2! That’s less than 70 Pesos, which is cheaper than the same combos sold here in the Philippines. Aria here had a blast with a sweet and savoury siopao — one is custard and the other is pork. Plus freshly made melon juice.

We had to find our way going to Universal Studios Singapore. With a map on hand, our stuff for the day, including a stroller, we reached USS at around 10am. We rode the MRT from Dhoby Ghout to Harbourfront Centre then took a Cable Car to Sentosa Island! Upon alighting the Cable Car, we found a cable car museum which we managed to check out when we got back. Then we rode the free bus which goes around Sentosa Island and takes you to the different attractions there.

Finally, we got to Universal Studios!

We rode only a few rides because it was also drizzling and we wanted to finish early to see more of Sentosa.

We were lucky to have photos with Shrek and Fiona!

Not to be missed of course are The Revenge of the Mummy and Transformers 3D. Aria rode Treasure Hunters! She almost did not finish the ride haha but am glad she did!

We chanced upon the Sesame Street show. Perfect timing.

My mom's backdrop is the New York Public Library mock-up where the Sesame Street shows are staged.

We had time so we went around Sentosa. Checked out the tall Merlion and passed by other attractions before we headed back to the hotel. It was quite a day of walking, eating, riding, and being plain happy! We loved it.

Watch out for Day Two (which I hope to post soonest!).

P.S.:  I am changing the title of my trip blogs into Rasa Sayang, which means loving feeling. Incidentally, it is also a popular folk song in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore. Check out the Madz singing it here.
