Later on, Tricia managed to purchase promotion tickets to Singapore Flyer and Gardens by the Bay through Groupon.
With such exciting itinenary in store, we were all eager and looking forward to the holiday. It had been 7 years since our last visit to Singapore. During our last trip, the Resort was only under construction.
I must say, it was an enjoyable and relaxing trip for the parents as Mandy volunteered to be the Tour Leader. She planned the itinenary and looked into all the transport arrangements. Sigh..she's taken charge of the family holidays from her old man. Anyways, for a change, I am worry free about the holiday. How my two little girls have grown up.
On the first day, we covered the Marina Bay area. We had a first hand look at the preparation of the F1 race track, went on the Singapore Flyer for a great view of the Lion City, the F1 track and Marina Sands, walked with awe through the air-conditioned conservatories housing the 'Cloud Forest' and 'Flower Dome'.
The 2nd and 3rd day was spent entirely at RWS, USS and SEA Aquarium. We even took a stroll through the Genting Casino looking at the actions of the punters at the tables. Thank God, none of us are into gambling. In the evening at 9 pm, there was even a water show at the waterfront.
Highlights of USS:
1. Waterworld show
2. Transformer Ride
3. Shrek show.
On the last day, we were all reluctant to leave the resort for our trip home. All in all, a fun and enjoyable trip.
