SENTOSA ISLAND .............

____________________
a lot of people
don't believe me
when I say that
I've stayed in Singapore
for only 3 days.
Guys, I did.......

Don't worry. I am almost done with my annals of our trip. Our final day was SENTOSA day. We started in VIVO city, the largest shopping mall in Singapore, located at the HarbourFront precinct .





.........we got here via MRT. Can't remember the stations. Here, there are lotsa good finds if you are into shopping. Except that it's a bit expensive. Not the tiangge type.









....we didn't shop of coarse. we need to be here coz of the Sentosa Express monorail to get to the other side.



Along the way, you see a container terminal.....



....and a clear view of the HarbourFront where the Singapore Cruise Centre is also located. Accoring to ALMA, there is where you take a ferry to Indonesia. Too bad though we didn't have much time to hop to the nearest Indonesian Island which is 1 hour away. Sayang, additional stamp sana sa passport.keke



Before getting the the first station, you cpould also notice a lot of construction going on. I heard that they are building a casino to compliment to the existing attractions in Sentosa. 1st stop. Imbiah Station.....











then we boarded a bus to PORT SILOSO...for free. But all the Indians are present en-masse. Cristy was caught in the middle. She regretted going in first because of over-excitement. Good thing the bus is free as well as the cart. If not, it should have been double jeopardy for Cristy.lol





There. We entered THE UNDERWATER WORLD SINGAPORE. Ticket is $22.90 ( 755pesos) Believe it or not it's my first time to see one like that. Sa bundok walang papel.




We got this special picture for $12.50 each It's optional but since I saw the label UNDERWATER world bla bla I took 2 without realizing that it's close to 412 pesos each. Whatever. Maybe I'll just scan it and reproduce it 1000 times. It's quite entertaining inside. You know. First time. To be honest though, it's quite old na.







Teresa and Cristy were so delighted to see their relatives.kekeke



....the experience aroused my curiosity on our own Ocean Park version here in Manila Bay. Ma-schedule nga.

Our last stop was the Dolphin show. Then we were off to pack our things for the evening flight to Manila. So many things to see, so little time. Bitin.



here's the map to guide you>>>>>



Oh---by the way. Did I mention we dropped by Siloso beach? We did.



Watch for it in my next post okay......

  5. Sentosa is generally known to be an expensive tourist spot in Singapore hehehe .. that's why for many years our govt had been trying to attract more locals to visit the island but in vain. Guess they have given up hope on us =P. But I think there are really many tourists wanting to visit Sentosa, perhaps our govt has succeeded in the campaign to attract tourists. XD

    Guess what? My friend has two tickets to visit Sentosa so we shall be going there soon! ^-^

    Oh ya! I have never been to Indonesia before!

  11. Eunice---I was not told that. But I guess it really is an expensive place, especially if you take all the attractions. Good thing thoug coz you can just stay in the beach and hang around. I saw a lot of locals, teengers playing volleyball in Siloso beach....
