After our last minute shopping trip at Bugis, we quickly visited Merlion Park before we left Singapore. As always, the park was full of people (esp. since it was a Sunday), but hey, it was nice to see the merlion once again.. It’s like a visit to this city is not complete without visiting this place.
Singapore was one of the first countries I’ve visited and it certainly is one of the few places that has enkindled my passion for travel so it will always hold a special place in my heart :)
I guess this wraps up my SG-MY trip posts.. sorry if there’s only a few details and pictures, it just felt like this vacation was just a quick one. If you’re a bit more curious about traveling to Singapore and Malaysia, you may check out my series of posts a couple of years ago here.
Coming up next… my posts on our recently-concluded Seoul trip. ;)
I can’t believe I haven’t been to Makansutra until now.. but I’m glad I finally got to try out the food here. One of my absolute favorites is anything that has got to do with prawns or shrimps so for sure, the runaway winner here are the cereal prawns (also, that other prawn dish with toasted garlic).
But really, I think everything that we ordered was really good (sorry I’m not really sure what the dishes exactly are, since my friend Glenn ordered for us). We loved the food so much that we ate here twice during this trip!
For sure, I’m coming back here when I get back to Singapore.. and that’s a promise ;)

It’s my second time in Legoland Malaysia and I just have to say — Legoland is definitely one of my favorite theme parks! It’s pretty relaxed and not too stressful when you’re going around the park (just make sure you wear sunblock if it’s a sunny day) — and well, I just basically love everything Lego. :)
And it’s just so awesome that I found Emmett and Wyldstyle and got to get my picture taken with them. I literally ran when I both saw them, haha! :P
One of the best things about that day too was that there were only a few people around, so we were able to ride ‘em rollercoasters. In fact, I got to enjoy the Project X ride thrice. Absolutely love it!
And oh yeah, I got a bit crazy at the Lego gift shop — I spent probably more than an hour looking around and it felt like I was in my happy place! I bought a lot of Legos for me and my nephews (and yes, they were thrilled when I gave it to them). I’ll try to write a separate post as soon as I’ve built all of them. :)
To say that I enjoyed this visit is probably an understatement.. And if you ask me to go there with you today, I’ll go with you in a heartbeat :*)
If you want to check out my first Legoland visit (there’s a lot to see in this post actually), you can read it here.
How to get there from SG: We booked our Legoland bus tickets online via WTS Travel (you can purchase your Legoland entrance tickets from there, as well). The pick-up point is at the Singapore Flyer and will drop you off at Legoland (and vice versa on your way back to Singapore). Just make sure that you bring your passport since you will need to go through immigration going in and out of both Singapore and Malaysia.
And just because this is one of my favorite food in Singapore — I think it deserves its own post!
After a very tiring day at Universal Studios, we decided to have dinner at Food Republic in Vivo City. I immediately looked for my favorite Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee and it still didn’t disappoint! =p~
If you want to try it out, look out for Thye Hong Fried Hokkien Mee.
Shortly after we arrived at Changi Airport and checked in at our hotel, we were on our way to Universal Studios. Luckily, there weren’t as much people as we expected, so we got to enjoy our visit (think around 20-30 minutes waiting time in the Transformers ride, which normally takes around 45 minutes to 1.5 hours).
It’s probably my third time in USS (make it four times, if you count my visit to Universal Studios in California), so nothing too exciting this time around. But I was glad to see the Minions and hug Elmo again, hihi.. Too bad, Puss in Boots was not around, though :P
How to get there: Take the East West Line MRT going to Harbourfront Station. Go to the third floor of Vivo City and take the Sentosa Express monorail, alighting at the Waterfront Station.
I know I still owe you some entries on my Singapore/Malaysia trip.. but I’m currently on vacation with my family in Seoul (yes.. again!)
So I guess I have a lot of backlog on my travel posts, but please stand by.. I promise to write as soon as my schedule permits ;)
Bye for now!
Off to the City of the Merlion for a quick vacation with a couple of my best friends and my godson who happens to be celebrating his birthday today.
I promise to keep you posted on our trip when I get back ;)
