Soaked in Singapore: Day 2


As told in my first post, it was raining when we first set foot in Singapore. It was also raining when we left. Daim, it was even raining when Geo and I watched Songs of the Sea! :D It wasn't that bad though, this actually made our trip more memorable! Here's how we drenched ourselves in Singapore on our DAY 2: literally and figuratively!

1) We rode the MRT countless of times:

You have never really experienced SG without COMMUTING!

Alli and Geo! I only followed them throughout our rides! Except on our last day!

2. We spent more than a day in Sentosa and Resorts World!
Half day is not enough!

3. We took photos with the Universal globe!
Don't forget to take both solo and group pictures! Too classic to miss out!

4. Booked our Universal Studios Ticket online--And availed the express pass!
The express pass might cost a lot...But it was actually sulit! 
We were able to catch ALL shows and rides we want, without lining up!

Diredirecho lang! To the Steven Spielberg attraction Lights, Camera, Action!

Feeling like bratty kids who always get their way: we were first to go in all the rides, such as the Canopy Flyer!

Kung hindi ka lang sarado, uulit-ulitin ka namin ni Alli!!!

One of my favorite shows: Waterworld!

Na may laughtrip basaan nung start!

And super cool action and effects during the show!


5. Drop by the Hershey's Store!

Go crazy over chocolates!


And the cutest chocolate merchandise!!!





6. Take photos with characters you bump into!
With chika Betty Boop!

I like to move it move it!

With Po!

Aww!

Beetlejuice!

Hug Woody Woodpecker!

...and take pictures even with the "stars"!

7. Do not let the BV spoil the fun.

The ride where my cellphone got soaked:

Sa sobrang madali, we didn't have time to think how we can protect our gadgets. =p
Not only my phone, but my whole bag, my new shoes, my hat, my passport, EVERYTHING got wet! I was testing my cam when I took this pic. 

After ko umiyak (because I'm a crybaby, haha!), I changed my top (see-through na yung polo ko haha), let things go, and enjoyed our last minutes in Universal Studios!
Still managed to smile, even in my pambahay. ;) Hehe!
Kailangan lang talaga may "souvenir"! :P

8. Eat authentic dishes! :D
We had our merienda in Vivo Mall's Food Republic. Oo teh, curry at kanin ang merienda ko hahaha!

Milk tea #2: in the food court.

Milk tea #3: Convenience store, Bottled.

9. Explore the different stations!

No time to waste, Geo and I went out that night instead of resting in our inn. We decided to stop over Little India, while Alli visited some relatives.


Totally unfamiliar grounds...We walked and asked around for the 24 hours Mustafa mall.

Where we enjoyed grocery shopping! 

I love grocery shopping! Ang mommy-mode ko nito! Pati sa porma! Hahaha!

10. Missed the last train going back to our place!!!

Geo asked around for alternative rides, like the bus!

Ang habang lakarin going to the bus stop!!! When we neared the stop, our bus was already moving! So tumakbo kaming dalawa running after Bus 147! Nag mala Dao Ming Su-SanChai moment kami dun, swear naririnig ko yun Broken Vow habang tumatakbo. Hahaha! 

That time, we were so scared because it was already past 12 midnight! Good thing we met a nice Indian guy who was with his daughter. He assisted us with the other alternative routes, although we ended up taking the cab anyway! ;p

I loved the day 2 of our Singapore trip, even after breaking my phone. I wasn't sure what lessons He wanted to give me because of that incident, Do not be reckless? Do not be too nice? To focus more on what is in front of me, and not what is home because that can wait? Naka roaming kasi ako non, first time to bring my phone on an out-of-town trip just to use the wifi in our hotel.

All soaked: Red Hat (Anagon), White Polo (Landmark), Denim Shorts (Gap), Brown Fringe Bag (HK), HiCut (Cotton On)


But whatever that lesson is, nothing beats getting Lost in Translation WITH FRIENDS. Adventure narin mabasa ang phone, mawala, humabol ng bus, kumausap ng strangers who can't even understand you! :D Sa huli, ang nasabi ko nalang ay: "Keber! Waley lang. Carrybelles nato, pagoda istreet nako! Anong Aesops' Fable dito?" HAHAHAHA! :D

  3. Looks like you really had fun with your SG trip kahit na "wet look" na. HAHA. Sa Rapids Aventure po ba 'yong kailangan pang bumili ng raincoat? Were you able to ride the Mummy Returns ride? Pansin ko lang, savior ang mga Indians ng mga Pinoy tourists. Indian din kasi nagturo sa amin ng direction when we got lost in HK. BTW, the earphones at the Hershey's store are adorable! :)
