Day 4: Universal Studio Singapore

When we first visited Singapore, Universal Studio was not yet there so it is the main reason why I wanted to go back again. We celebrated our 8th Wedding Anniversary in Universal Studio Singapore. Yes, no fancy dinner nor expensive gift but I was indeed happy because we’re in Singapore again and my son will enjoy USS. Traveling makes me happy. 

We rode MRT to VivoCity Shopping mall and take a leisure stroll to Resorts World Sentosa where USS is located. The Sentosa Boardwalk is 700 meters long but you won’t get tired because there’s travelators and you will enjoy the panoramic view of bay. Take a quick stop for pictures. 

At the end you will see a booth where you can buy tickets and pay $SG1 for Sentosa entance fee. The waiting time is long so if you have time, make sure you have your tickets already. We’re supposed to buy our ticket in Travel Delight because it is much cheaper but unfortunately we could not find the office in Bugis. Adult $SG74 Kid $SG54 

Upon entering the theme park, we secured a map and schedule of shows and we immediately look for New York Zone to watch the Sesame Street Stage Show

Then we moved to Sci-Fi City Zone to ride Transformers The Ride: Ultimate 3D Battle and Accelerator. 

Next stop is the Ancient Egypt Zone, my husband rode the Revenge of the Mummy and after that we tried the Treasure Hunters

We ate our lunch in Discovery Food Court, my husband ordered set meal at $SG11.50 each and 1 Jura Cup Coke for $19.80 ($SG2 for refill).

After eating our lunch we went to The Lost World Zone, my husband rode the Canopy Flyer while I accompany my son in Dino-Soarin. Since we don’t want to get wet yet we moved to the next zone which is Far, Far Away

We rode Shrek 4D Adventure, Magic Potion Spin and watched Donkey Interactive Live Show.

Next stop is Madagascar Zone, we rode the Madagascar: A Crate Adventure and King Julien’s Beach Party-Go-Round. We missed the Madagascar Boogie show. 

We went back to New York Zone to watch the Rockafellas and moved back to The Lost World Zone for WaterWorld Show. Be ready to get wet here and if you don’t want to get wet, make sure you will not sit in front rows.

We watched the Lights, Camera, Action and I was really amazed how they produce and create light and sound effect. Then rode the Sesame Street Spaghetti Space Chase

We explore the Hollywood Zone and watched the Mel’s Dinettes and The Cruisers. Our tour is not complete without riding the Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure. My son got scared at the end of the ride where the dinosaur will eat us. Hehehe! Fortunately, we did not get wet except for my husband. 

Finally, we watched the Monster Rock Show and went back to hotel. Universal Studio Singapore is not that big compared to Hongkong Disneyland so you can enjoy the park even for a day.

Buco Tart

Though we frequently visit Tagaytay, we don’t always visit pasalubong store especially if we are always in a hurry to go home or if we don’t want to eat sweets. We love buying Spanish Bread from Sonya’s Garden, Cassava Cake or Sylvannas from Rowena’s and Tawilis from vendor outside Rowena’s. But we haven’t tried buco tart or maybe because I’m not fond of buko pie.

When we went to Stilts Calatagan, we went home early because my friend wanted to buy buco tart. We went to Amira’s Buco Tart but unfortunately all tarts were sold out so we went to Loumars.

I bought 1 box for P160, one box contains 9 pieces of buco tart. I tried it and I love it because it is not sweet and you can really taste the buco. Now, I prefer buco tart than buko pie because it is smaller. #madalingkainin

Then last Good Friday, I went back to Amira’s Buco Tart to try their famous buco tart that was featured in Kris TV. One box is P170 for 9 pieces of buco tart. I tried it and I liked it too. Honestly, I can’t tell the difference except for the price. Hehehe!

Holy Week 2014

I always look forward for Holy Week because it is looong weekend but we don’t have any family outing because we try to stay away from traffic and crowd. Normally, we don’t plan anything for Holy Week, we took advantage of staying at home, doing household chores or doing nothing.

Caleruega 2008
I noticed that every year we spent Holy Week in different ways but the only thing that my husband never fails to do since 2008 is to visit Caleruega Church. I was still pregnant with my only son when we started visiting this church and now my son already memorize the place, how to get to the church, station of the cross, koi and chapel.

We also visited my grandmother in Victoria, Laguna, accompany her in the grocery and then went home.

Yesterday was Easter Sunday and for the last few years I’ve been checking the Easter Egg Hunt in different hotels but whenever I compute for the price, nakakahinayang. I want my son to experience egg hunt so I was happy when my friend asked me “San kayo mag Easter Egg Hunt?” and when I told her na I don’t have definite plan. Initially, we wanted to attend the Easter Egg Hunt in Fun Ranch but we ended up planning for our own event. #hehehe!

My friend prepared the Egg Hunt in their home, one friend bought prizes, one friend brought boiled eggs for Egg Painting/Coloring and each of us brought food to share.

Mommy: Ethan, get ka ng maraming egg later ha.
Then Ethan open our fridge and putting all our eggs in his bag. Lol. 

Obvious na la pa experience sa Easter Egg Hunt ang aking anak. But he really had fun and he got 9 eggs.

After eating and hunting, swimming naman.
