Universal Studio, Singapore

May 22, 2011

Haha I started to feel like I'm a tour guide or something, introducing all these places and restaurants in Singapore. Well, I must say that I still prefer talking about them one by one here in my blogspot than uploading everything to facebook massively. Ohh and this is such a late post, have been really busy lately having driving lessons (yay I can drive legally now!), helping parents to do their works for their club magazine etc. Finally I'm about to finish typing my reference letters and stuff for my college scholarship application after procrastinating it for centuries ._.

Back to the topic, Universal Studio was one of the main reasons why Nancy and I decided to go to Singapore. Before we had our examination last year, we had been dreaming to go to some theme parks together and play like a kid! Everything was fine until we reached Vivo City, where we departed to Sentosa Island, because it started to drizzle. for your information, universal studio is an outdoor theme park! :( Oh well they do have some indoor restaurants and theaters. But the roller coasters and everything else are mostly outdoor.
After using up about an hour strolling in the shopping mall aimlessly, we decided not to waste our time hesitating anymore. Though it was drizzling, and it actually seemed like it would be raining heavier afterwards, we didn't really care anymore, we bought the tickets and headed to Universal Studio!
Ahh I'll let my photos to tell you how Universal Studio looks like, alright? I really really like the music they played, I felt so lively and bubbly and whateverly listening to the music, it's the music they usually play in the cartoons of fairy tales! Everything was so perfect.
This 4D film is great! You'll love it 8)
This is one of the restaurants inside the theme park. Obviously it's in the Jurassic Park part- The Lost World, though it actually reminded me of the movie "Night at the Museum" more :P We wanted to have our lunch here but there were TOO many people that all tables were already occupied. this restaurant is actually quite spacious :O
This is the Shrek restaurant, I think. It's just like another fast-food restaurant but it was flooded by people because it was raining outside! We waited a while for a table, and used up perhaps half an hour queueing up to buy our food ._. For your information, it was a weekday. So I don't recommend people to visit here during weekends haha. My mood went a lil bit bad because of the weather, so both my friends were the ones who queued up for half an hour to buy me the food, while what I needed to do was just to sit there and waited them to come with my food. Thanks a lot! I'm really sorry for the mood swing :(
When the rain started to stop a little bit, we quickly went out to play the outdoor roller coasters.
When the ancient Egypt statues meet modern roller coasters. haha and I must say that, these 2 roller coasters are really really fun! You'll need to play these, seriously. We were scared but we sort of forced ourselves to try everything since we had already paid for them. I'm not sure why but we got so high after we tried them 8)
And this is the New York City :p When I saw all these buildings I got really excited. You'd feel like you're not in Singapore anymore!
Aww, it's the renowned Marilyn Monroe (:
me: Hey! Let's do the same pose together!
Rudy: what?!
Countless of chocolate... papers! At the first sight we thought they were all real chocolates so we rushed in excitedly only to find out that the millions of chocolates above are only papers! >:( Actually they're quite obvious arent they. haha.
This dude did a damned good job in being childish like a small kid. And I'm not teasing, he's so good in talking and making people laugh! Oh and it's the Donkey show.

No i'm not going to say too much about it. You all should visit it and check out everything by yourself! (:
P/S: Sorry for the overloaded photos in this post! :O
just felt like to go out and take some photos that morning.
and a new book i bought on mother's day.

Mother's Day Lunch at Kensington, Seremban

May 10, 2011

Lemme talk a little bit about my mum first. there's a formspring question that asked "What do you most appreciate about your mom?" I can't choose. There are too many things that I appreciate about my mum.
She never complains. let it be waking up at some weird time (extremely early in the morning) to fetch me to the train station, or fetching me to somewhere far away and then coming back alone, or going out to buy what i want to eat/buy immediately etc. she never complains. never.

when i'm oversea or not at home, she'd always be the one who calls before she sleeps or whenever she thinks of me, or texts me and asks how's everything going on, with the phrase 'i love you' at the end of the message. sometimes the phone call might last for only 30 seconds, but i feel safe listening to her voice, feel loved talking to her.

everytime i take part in any competition, she'd try her best to turn out even if it's far. but she's always afraid that i'd be nervous seeing her watching so when i was having public speaking competition, she always came and sat among the audience but didn't look at me, she stayed quiet, listened to me when i was speaking and looked at ... the floor. lol haha.

and i appreciate that my parents don't force us to do anything we don't like. both mum and dad. i appreciate this a lot. and i mean A LOT.
This year we managed to celebrate this meaningful day together. Sister and my second elder brother came back home 1 day earlier before Mother's Day, while my sister-in-law came back to KL from Penang 1 day earlier too! I forgot if my sister came back from Singapore for the past few years :/ We've heard brother and my 2nd elder brother's girlfriend recommending this restaurant so we decided to come here and try it out.

Usually we'd have bought a cake but this year we didn't. And dad has already told us that we were going to buy mum a new high-tech handphone, because this year she's going to be the Lions Club president so she'll need to check mail and stuff quite often. for your information, my mum isn't a modern mum :p she prefers writing everything on papers than typing them into the computer. She only started learning to use computer and internet last year. And she's getting so much better now, at least she can do all the online-payment by herself without the need to shout at me and ask what should she do again. Dad was thinking to buy mum an iPhone4 but some of us think it's not a good idea. My mum had always been using some old phones because they're user-friendly, huge font size, simple and just easy. Plus her eyesight isn't too good so she always wants the font size to be big. So my siblings started discussing and doing some researches about different phones with different sizes and features to make sure that we buy the right one for our mum!

After the lunch, we instantly went to the shopping mall nearby and try out the phones that were in our list. We think that the size of an iPhone4 is way too small for mum, but the size of an iPad is way too big to carry around with her! So we tried the one with the size between an iPhone and iPad. We tried the Samsung Galaxy Tab. Surprisingly mum likes it! And she doesn't seem to have too many problems using it. The size of it is perfect for mum to read all the mails and it's quite user-friendly.

Happy Mother's Day, mum! We loveeeeeeeeee you!
