Went on another whirlwind weekend with bf, this time to… SINGAPORE!! Being Malaysian and all, I don’t have a very good perception of Singapore in general – it can’t be helped, it’s in my upbringing!! ^_- hAHa! Despite the low expectations, the trip went extremely well – to the point I wouldn’t mind visiting again =)
One of the reasons for enjoying myself so much was the day spent at Universal Studios Singapore!!! Since it only opened around March 2010 not all the rides and attractions are functioning/open for visitors which is a bit of a bummer, the guys were also a bit hungover so we didn’t go on many rides ^^;;
Even with the lack of queuing for rides, it took us the day to go around the whole park (express pass is recommended if you plan on going on many rides – just not worth the queues!). Thankfully the day we chose was actually quite decent for a humid country like Singapore, sunny with a few clouds… it became quite stormy towards the evening just as we were leaving and finishing up our shopping though.
We could have probably spent more time in Universal Studios, but the weather quickly drains your energy and makes walking around in the humidity quite uncomfortable even with plenty of air-conditioned breaks. Overall it was a good experience with lots to see, many photo opportunities and great company. It would have been a little nicer if more of the attractions were actually OPEN or functioning though… I would recommend others to wait for all the attractions to open before planning a visit~
