A visit to the Universal Studios Singapore

Hmm.. a little wasted because there are so many rides that I couldn’t take at all, including the 3d shrek movie actually! But I took it anyway and yeah, the motion seats are a lil rough.. if you are a expectant like me, better postpone the trip to USS to another year after delivery.  🙂

With this, we end our 3d2n staycation at RWS and tomorrow is the actual start of our brand new year – hubby returning to work and KD starting his first day of nursery education at little wings. 

Happy 2013 everyone!

A visit to the S.E.A Aquarium @ Resort World Sentosa

Before I start, this is one place I highly recommend for your family to come! Yes, there are still some fishes missing. But the experience is awesome and magnificent! The moment I entered, I feel transported to another world where I do feel so light hearted and relax! Beautiful! Kd enjoys himself too!

I won’t go into too much details but just share with you images I took while we were there.

Warning:
This is a pictures heavy post!

Tip:
Go on a weekday morning at 10am when it just opened. The crowd is much lesser and you will be able to take pictures comfortably. You can exit and ask for a re-entry stamp and come back again later in the day.

Our Beginning of 2013

We had a very meaningful start to 2013!

Early in the morning we woke Kyle up and brought him to Kong Meng San monastery for the “Alms offering to the Sangha” event.  It’s very meaningful and I hope to expose him to Buddhism early.

After that, we began our 3d2n staycation at Resort World Sentosa. I hope that 2013 will be like the way we started it – about giving and sharing, about being contented and grateful, being with and a family full of love and care, having fun in a relaxed and stress free environment and most importantly, being healthy!

So, today we checked into the Michael Hotel, covered the experiential maritime museum, shopped at Vivocity, swam in the pool and watched song of the sea.

Family day out at Sentosa

It’s Sunday and of cos we will not let a great weekend goes to waste!

Two weeks back, we have applied for the Sentosa Islander membership at only $50 nett for annual unlimited entry into Sentosa for up to 5 immediate family members if we all walk in (or take the tram in for free!) If you drive in, all the members on board in your car will enter Sentosa for free. 🙂 You can also submit your vehicle details and IU number for a quicker auto gate entry into Sentosa. Since we had the islander card, we had been into Sentosa thrice.

As usual, since it’s always raining mainly in the noon or late afternoons, a quick check with the weather forecast, and we have arrived in Sentosa at 10+am! We went to the more family friendly Palawan Beach and unload our stuffs pretty quickly. We had a big picnic mat, 2 chairs, sandwiches, fruits, tidbits and icy cold water! We also brought along a soccer ball, bubbles launcher and KD’s sand play bag. The highlights of the day is of course KD’s favorite, playing with sand! He learnt to fill the container with sand, turning it over carefully, burying items and uncovering them! Who say that you have to spend a lot when you come to Sentosa? I feel that the beaches here are much nicer, more conducive and relaxing!

Tips:
1) If you mainly drive in, you can also choose to apply an individual islander card at only $25 nett. With an islander card in hand, it also allows u to drive in free with your car full of people! In our case, we wanted the flexibility and thus we applied the family islander membership and include the cards for my own mom and sister! Thus if we want, we can all sit into different cars to drive friends in together!
2) Parking in Sentosa is not expensive! If you do not intend to stay in Sentosa for more than 4 hours, you can may want to park in the more accessible Beach Carpark, it costs only $5 for 1st 4 hours.

3) There were occasions where we drive in to Sentosa after 5pm and parked at the Beach carpark at only $2 per entry so that we can have dinner in Sentosa. 🙂 Explore, you will find your favorite food there too!

It’s our 4th wedding anniversary

It’s 11.11 again and we are married for 4 years now and together for 8 years plus and counting. I won’t forget how on our 1st wedding anniversary is KD’s actual full month day. How time flies!

A wedding anniversary doesn’t need to be lavish to be blissful and we spent a great family day today! Guess where we went? SENTOSA! 😉
