Universal Studios Singapore

August 29, 2010

A day we let our inner child roam free! :) favourite boy took leave and off we went on a Friday to my much-awaited trip to Universal Studios Singapore!

Photobucket

Full-sized photos were up a long time ago on Facebook so they are all squished into little collages just for my memory sake. :)

If you are still interested, everything is below the cut!

Photobucket

First stop was to collect our tickets from a little booth because the online website ran out of tickets and I sourced the tickets through a travel agency. Smarty pants Joy.

Photobucket

Finally, we arrived at our destination! Time check, 10am. Not too bad… :)

Photobucket

Was greeted with happy music and a myraid of colours on awesome looking buildings! I felt like I had literally stepped into another world. Theme Park World. :P

Photobucket

A short stretch of sheltered area makes up “Hollywood“. Population: Glamourous. Here we saw alot of Marilyn Monroe memorabillia and Betty Boop (which I really don’t like).

Photobucket

The jungle that greeted us as soon as we stepped into the hot Singapore sun was “Magadascar“!! I love cartoons~

Photobucket

First ride of the day, my all-time favourite, very cute and very very safe, Merry-go-round!

Photobucket

Alex the lion, eats sushi. :P

Photobucket

Next we walked into a futuristic world of “Sci-Fi City” where it houses the highlight of USS, the world’s first duelling roller-coasters, Battlestar Galactica which was closed. :( but because it was closed (has been for a long long time) we got $20 worth of F&B/Shopping vouchers. So that was the silver lining.

Other than this ride, Sci-fi zone was disappointingly empty.

Photobucket

As if the sun was not bright enough, “Ancient Egypt” with its sandy hues up the temperatures quite abit. The hugeeee statues of mummies and whatevernots was very impressive. Even the fake sand walls had old inscriptions on them.

Photobucket

I am so short!!!!!!

Photobucket

Here we rode on my favourite ride throughout the amusement park. The Revenge of the Mummies!!!! It was probably the most thrilling ride in this whole park – not that it was very scary at all. The silliest ride in Universal Studios America will probably put this to shame.

Oh wells, we rode this twice anyway. Lockers are provided for you to store your belongings before this “scary” ride but its only free for the first 30 minutes. So if you want to ride twice, remember to come out and switch lockers before going in again. :)

Photobucket

Kiddy ride which we only took because the jeep you get to sit in looks so cute. :P

Photobucket

Oh oh oh, and here we arrive at my favourite place of all. PRINCESS LAND!!! Hahaha, “Far Far Away” is where Shrek lives with Princess Fiona who used to be a pretty princess turned fat ogre. :X

Photobucket

This is my favourite part of the park! So whimsical and frivalous. Hahaha..

Photobucket

We rode a dragon here! :)

Photobucket

The 4D show was EXACTLY the same as the one in Movieworld, Australia. With the moving seats, the ‘ticklish’ spiders and the spraying of water… Storyline, plot, even the theater was EXACTLY the same. *feels cheated*

Photobucket

Nice nice castle…. Would prefer Disneyland though… It feels more magical if the princess was actually pretty. Lol.

Photobucket

Met fellow UQ friend, Samantha and her boyfriend (Hanhui’s brother). Small small world. :)

Photobucket

I know I am probably gushing… But I love the castle, I love my boyfriend, I love everything that day! :D

Photobucket

Stopped for a water show when we got a little flustered by the heat. It did not help much because the short bursts of fireworks and the explosions created much more heat than the sun. :( but the show was funny, a definite must-see!

Photobucket

So we extended our break with tea time of chicken wraps. Food here is so expensive.. :(

Photobucket
Photobucket

After we got well rested, we visted “Jurassic Park: The Lost World“. I like like this place! My second favourite, cue childhood memories of USA.

Photobucket

Bought raincoats because when I was a kid, this ride left me totally drenched! Unfortunately though, this ride in USA had like a 25m free fall drop!?! But here, just a tiny slope. I was not wet AT ALL. Pooey~

Photobucket

Here we took a soaring ride to get an aerial view of the park, which is pretty small come to think of it.

Photobucket

Time passes fast when you are having fun.. Soon, we were at our last stop, “New York“. Bustling city with alot of lights and sounds.

Photobucket

Loved the props you could actually pose with…

Photobucket

There were small children volunteers breakdancing too!

Photobucket

Wanted to have this for dinner but it turned out to just be an overpriced burger joint.

Photobucket

Walking along the cobbled stone pavement………

Photobucket

Models-to-be? Or just incredible narcissits?

Photobucket

He more vain can!!! Keep saying “Ah girl take photo of me!” LOL.

Photobucket

We also got to sit through a category 5 major hurricane! This is how they film movies!!! And of all people, the whole stimulation was hosted by none other then Steven Spielberg himself!

Photobucket

Photobucket

The builder of this place should be applauded… No expense was spared to create the atmosphere.

Photobucket

Last shot of the castle because I really like it. Hohoho~

Photobucket
Photobucket

My other favourite part of that awesome day was taking photos with all the mascots! Yeaps, I think I caught them all! ^^

Photobucket

Hungry hungry me got a little cranky towards this point because my boy was totally hoodwinked by bellydancing china girls at the World Cup screening at Resort World Sentosa. -__-

Photobucket

Explored the corridors of the 6 hotels while looking horribly underdressed. Just so I can blow aircon. Haha..

Photobucket

Settled for dinner at Baits which is Din Tai Fung really.

Photobucket

I wish that me and him will be happy. Forever and always.

Photobucket

Returned to USS to use up the vouchers we were given on souveniers.

Photobucket

Played with costumes while we waited for the fireworks finale to start!

Photobucket

It did… And we got best, unobstructed seats because we were kiasu Singaporeans. :P

Photobucket

Going home… Only then did I realise the station was a hole blown into the building! Keke.

Photobucket

Outside USS, a chocolate lover’s dream come true. I liked the Hershey’s Kisses beanie pillow in pink… Reese’s peanut butter cups too!

Photobucket

Tired us then dragged our bodies to the shuttle bus area waiting for our free ride home. Straight to Tampines!! Woots~
