The Rest of Sentosa

Beach in October :)


I've been reading about the massive snow storm back home and seeing my friends facebook posts from as far south as VA complaining about the cold. And here I am in Singapore, where it has literally never snowed, enjoying the sunshine. So rather than take the sunshine for granted, me and my friends from Canada spent yesterday at the Beach on Sentosa, soaking up the rays and working on our tans. Once again, it was a beautiful day.

Then as we decided to head home (it is the rainy season, and it does downpour everyday around 1 or 2 usually with thunder and lightning) we realized we haven't explored the rest of the island besides the beach area. So we walked through the island along a really cool mosaic fountain up to a giant statue of the Merlion. You can pay to climb to the top and look out of its mouth, but we weren't sure exactly what you would be looking at besides a giant shipyard off the coast, so we didn't go up. In the middle of the island there are more fountains before you reach the Universal Studios entrance.


We thought it was funny we spend so much time there and never seen any of this stuff! Although we haven't been to Universal yet, we hope to find a day where a group of us can all go together before the semester ends. It doesn't look as big as the ones in Florida, but it does have roller coasters like the Dueling Dragons at Island of Adventure and various other Universal rides so we think it would be really fun.
