Alright! It’s finally time for part two!! I’m so so sorry that I wasn’t able to post this last week! 😭😭 I had a few technical difficulties (literally 😂) and I was also super busy with other extra-curriculars. 😭😭 I just thought it would be better if I posted a good quality post a bit later rather than an awful post that’s hurriedly written. ❤
On day three, We went to this EPIC island in Singapore called ‘Sentosa’ and it’s known as ‘The State of fun’ so that itself made me extremely excited! We started off the day with a lovely breakfast at Starbucks and went on towards the island. It was quite close to the hotel we were staying (Amara Singapore ❤) so that was great!
What wasn’t so great was the weather haha…it started raining as we were leaving which was kind of sad because it meant that most of the rides would have to close down for a couple of hours.
The good thing was that after a while, the sun came back out and everything opened up again! We had mapped out the places we wanted to visit beforehand (There was a LOT to do!) and I’d definitely recommend doing that too because otherwise it all might get a bit overwhelming. 😊❤
Our first stop? Madame Tussaud’s! Madame Tussaud’s is this amazing place where there are life sized wax figures of all sorts of famous people-you can take pictures with them and do a ton of other things too! The wax figures were so realistic, I actually got a fright the first time I saw them. 😂 I couldn’t (and still can’t actually 😂) believe that they were real!
Anyway, it was probably the closest thing I’ll ever get to actually meeting all of those lovely people! Especially Gandhi! I even got to take over the throne! (Not for real though 😉) And after we were done, it took me a couple of minutes to get back to the ‘real world’ because I kept thinking that a person who didn’t move for more then five seconds had just automatically turned into a wax person. 😅😂
This peacock was (very surprisingly) following us back to our seats?? I didn’t really mind, to tell you the truth I was quite honored, but then I realized that it was just going after the fruit that we were holding…oh well..😂
Our next stop was an awesome 4D Adventure ride! It was at this place called 4D Adventure Land, and we went on a ride called ‘The Extreme Log Ride and it was super fun! But who knew logs had such a hard life? I certainly didn’t and now all the logs from around the world will forever have my sympathy.
Then we went on this AMAZING thing called a luge. (Pronounced as Loog-e.I had some fun with that haha…) it was called ‘The Skyline Luge’ and is said to be the biggest luge in South-East Asia, so that’s really cool! Since there were many trails to choose from, we decided to get tickets to go on it thrice and ride the sky lift (which is super cool!) A sky lift is like a ski lift but without the snow, and I’d always wanted to go on a ski lift so it was a win-win situation! 😉 And a luge is like a go-kart but without the engine..it moves through the forces of gravity alone. 😱💗
I had a bit of trouble getting the hang of the luge at first and I ended up getting stuck, and a huge queue of people were behind me waiting for me to start moving. (Sorry guys!!) It was really embarrassing! 😅 But in the end, my family and I had a race and I ended up coming in second! Yay! So that was a definite improvement haha..
Day Four was very exciting because I went to Universal Studios!! It was my first time ever going to a place like that, with new worlds awaiting at every corner- so I was extremely excited! 😍 It rained again, so some of the rides were closed for a bit, (😭) but they opened up pretty quickly so it was alright! 😁
It’s the globe!!
When I first walked in, I actually couldn’t believe what I was seeing. It was like I had been suddenly whisked away to this other-worldly place where everything was perfect and realms were just a couple of minutes away. I loved it! 😍😍
One thing I found super cool about the whole place was that everything was perfectly themed and put together. There were about six-seven realms to explore and each and every single one of them was more astonishing than the other.
Hollywood was definitely the coolest with cinemas at every corner-and of course Universal is kind of a part of Hollywood (I mean, the Universal movies ❤) so I found that awesome! I’ve got to admit though- my favourite realm would have to be Far Far Away. It was the realm of fairy-takes and it was like something out of a story book! There was even a giant castle! The other realms include- Sci Fi City, Ancient Egypt,Madagascar, Jurassic World and New York!
A lil’ glimpse of what it looked like 😊
Anyway, It closed at about six in the evening (I highly recommend going early so you can finish up all the rides 😊❤) and since we had a bit of spare time left, my family and I headed towards this famous spot called ‘Clarke Quay’ (pronounced at ‘Clark Key’).
The river there was stunning as well! Especially in the night! All of the lights just reflected back onto the water and it made these cool effects! I also think it’s the perfect place to have a walk along the pier and just reflect on life, I guess? 😂☺️
Oh! And then we went all the way across the town (and almost got lost haha..) to a restaurant called Pistachio (definitely recommend it!) which served some amazing Middle Eastern food! I had never tried it before and I instantly loved it! ❤😊
All of us had some last minute things that we wanted to get so it was good plan. I also now have two favourite stores. Typo and Daiso were amazing and they had Such. Pretty. Things!! 😍😍
This was also the day that we tried authentic Singaporean food like Mee-Goreng and Korean food and Malaysian food! It was quite an adventurous day and I actually really enjoyed it! 😊❤
I also found this J.K Rowling quote (😍😍) In a Hardware store in the Mall we went to (VEVO City!) which obviously instantly made me fall in love with it. ❤
And that’s it…Unfortunately! Singapore was AMAZING and I had a brilliant time and I absolutely loved writing about it all!! I hope that you have enjoyed reading Dreamer Diaries and thank you so so much for all of your love and support!! I can’t tell you how much it means to me! 😊❤
Let me know what you thought about my travel diary (and about Singapore!) in the comments!! I also really want to know-Out of the seven realms in Universal which one do you think would have been your fave one? I’m really curious! ☺️❤
