This day was our last day of our trip to Singapore. We didn’t feel that it’s already the last day, because it’s so much fun to stroll in Singapore. Because i already took my family to all of main tourist destination in Singapore, i decide to make this day as a free day for all of us to go to place we haven’t satisfied to go during our trip. Meanwhile, i chose to take a walk by myself to discover some place that i never go before. In the morning, we had breakfast together at the food stall near hotel. And then we were separated into 2 group. The first group is contain only me and my mother, while the rest is in another group. I and my mother decide to go to Singapore Botanic Garden, while the other group decide to go shopping in Orchard. We separated at Lavender MRT Station and agreed to meet each other for lunch at Takashimaya in Orchard Road.

A Happy Trip to Singapore (Day 6) : Singapore Zoo and Clarke Quay

October 20th, 2012 No comments

List of tourist attraction visited today :

  • Singapore Zoo
  • Chinese Garden
  • Clarke Quay 

It’s already 5 days passed in Singapore. We already visited almost all the main tourist destination in Singapore. After spent the whole day at Universal Studio of Singapore yesterday, now it’s our time to visited Singapore Zoo, the most visited place of interest in Singapore based on Straight Times (Singapore local newspaper) in 2009. Actually, i plan to go to Singapore Botanic Garden first before heading to Singapore Zoo. But i was afraid we would not have enough time to visit all of place in that day, because we still have to visit my childhood friend, Cynthia who live in Singapore. We were out of the hotel earlier that day. Because we were a little saturated with the food at the food stall in front of our hotel, so that day we decided to eat at another place. Based on what i searched earlier on the internet, we went to Aljunied MRT Station. There were 2 vegetarian restaurant there. We took the bus at the bus stop we usually get off (Yi Xiu Fty Bldg). It need only 2 bus stop to arrive at Aljunied MRT Station. We finally found the vegetarian restaurant, it’s called Ci Hang Vegetarian Fast Food. But it’s still closed that time. There was a paper in the door said that it will open at 10:00. Because it’s already 09:45 that time, we decided to wait. Fortunately, the owner of the restaurant know that we were waiting outside, so she let us to came in before 10:00.

A Happy Trip to Singapore (Day 5) : Have Fun All Day in Universal Studios

October 16th, 2012 2 comments

This was the day that we have long been waiting for. No doubt, Universal Studio was the most exciting place we visited in our 7 days trip. For me, visiting Universal Studio is the thing must to do if you go to Singapore, especially if you are teenager who love to play in amusement park. Because Universal Studio Singapore open 10:00 everyday, so we got out from hotel around 9 o’clock. Like usual, we had breakfast at the food stall near the hotel. We took the same bus like yesterday (double decker bus no 80) from Opp Mohd Salleh Mque bus stop directly to Vivo City. One again, we sit on the upper level of the bus to enjoy the view of Singapore. After arrived at Vivo City, we directly went to 3rd floor where Sentosa Station was located. We took the Sentosa Express to go to Universal Studio. After got down at the first station (Waterfront), we finally arrived at Universal Studio area. The day was quite sunny, so it’s a perfect time to play all day in this park.

October 11th, 2012 No comments

List of tourist attraction visited today :

  • Vivo City
  • HarbourtFront
  • Sentosa Island

After visited a lot of place in the second day and the third day, we spent the fourth day by playing in Sentosa Island. Because some of us were very tired because of the trip yesterday, i decided to got out from the hotel a little bit late again. We departed from the hotel around 11 o’clock. Like usual, we had a breakfast in the food stall near the hotel. After had breakfast, we departed to Vivo City by Bus. From the bus stop near the hotel (Opp Mohd Salleh Mque), we took bus no 80. The bus directly headed to Vivo City. We took the double decker bus, and my nephew seems very happy that time. Because since the second day, he always asked to ride the double decker bus. The distance between Geylang area to Vivo City is quite far. It need about 30 minutes of trip. Ride a double decker bus in Singapore was quite fun. It’s more like a city sightseeing tour if we sit on the upper level of the bus.

After having breakfast, we go back to the hotel. We departed from our hotel around 12 o’clock in the afternoon. We use the bus to go to nearest MRT station (Lavender). Our first destination for that day is Orchard Road, the busiest shopping area in Singapore. We already went to Orchard Road on the first day. But we didn’t do anything at that day, because we were searching for food and almost all shops already closed that time.

I planned to spend the second day by go to shopping place and visit several unique area that become the icon of Singapore . We departed from hotel around 9 o’clock.

Our first destination for today is Little India, an area where the majority people who living there is India people. I decided to go by bus directly to Little India. From our hotel (Fragrance Hotel Saphire), we took the bus no 2 from Opp Mohd Salleh Mque and got off at Little India Stn. The bus stop was exactly in front of Little India MRT Station. We crossed the street and we arrived at Tekka Centre of Little India.

Couple of weeks ago on September 10, 2012, i went traveling to Singapore with all my family member (except my father). My father already went on vacation earlier (he went to Thailand alone on May), so this time he stayed at home and didn’t come along with us. This time, i went together with my mother, my younger brother, my older brother, my older brother’s wife and her sister. This is the moment that i waiting so long. Since my childhood, i never have a trip with family member to other city. So i was so happy with this rare opportunity.
