Part 2 out of 3 of my Singapore: February 2016 post! (Sorry if it’s taking me forever to write everything!)
Day 2 — CHINESE NEW YEAR is out UNIVERSAL STUDIOS DAY!
Aaaaaaaah, I’m finally going to Universal Studios Singapore!!! This is my third time in SG but this is also the first time I’m entering Universal Studios. I know, it’s kinda weird because that’s the #1 place to visit on my list ever since and failed to visit it for my first 2 SG trip.
I sort of had mixed-emotions going there on a holiday.
Obviously, one of the disadvantages of going to Universal Studios on a holiday is the big crowd. It’s super crowded. You’d see people everywhere in any angle, lines are also longer than usual so I’d be helpful if you’d buy the express ticket on holidays.
One of the biggest thing we missed in our first Universal Studios trip was that we weren’t able to ride any ride at all. I know, what’s the point of going there if we won’t ride any rides?! Our mom doesn’t want to ride them and since the only person who has a working phone is my brother it’s kind of hard for us to communicate with each other so have to be with each other all the time. Also, Skye’s too small to ride any rides either so we don’t really have that much choice. It’s ok, it’s not as if we won’t return there ever.
Our original plan was to spend the entire day there but since we weren’t able to ride rides, we just decided to leave early. It brought us to our next tourist-y destination that we originally intended to visit the next day — The Merlion Park. It’s as crowded as Universal Studios!
Our obligatory tourist-y photos! Hahaha. I cropped it nicely so you guys won’t see any photobombers on the sides.
We also visited Marina Bay Sands because we were supposed to meet up with our family friend there for dinner but they moved it to Orchard instead. We didn’t bother taking our mom to Gardens by the Bay because she’s already complaining about her aching feet and can’t walk anymore.
Our day 2 ended with a lovely (and delicious) dinner treat at Din Tai Fung with our family friend’s family.
