Jurong Bird Park @ Singapore (Day 2)

Saturday, July 18, 2015 0 Comments A+ a-

We wake up early to get ready to the Jurong Park but it was raining since 7.00am. I pray and hope the rain stops and we waited until 9.30am. Finally. We quickly had our breakfast and reach Jurong Park at 10.30am. We still managed to catch the first show for the High Flyers Show. The weather is nice, cool after the short rains. My girl keep on looking at the leaflet and bird park map and showing me where to go next. She was excited!

Beautiful parrots. Amazing! The birds can sing song and greet us too. They sang " Rasa Sayang, Happy Birthday To You and Ke Ren Lai (A kid chinese song). Lovely!
Mr. and Mrs. Hornbill

Playground are for the kids


We sat the train that brings us a short tour for the whole Jurong Bird Park. There are in total 3 station to catch the train. My girl starts complaining that she is very tired. Couldn't walk anymore. Need papa to carry her. Once I bought her the ice cream, she now telling me: Mummy, I can walk now..Yummm

Cute little penguins. I keep asking hubby- Are those penguins real?? Some doesn't move at all!

All goes well with the weather especially. Though cloudy, but it does not rain anymore. It is such a nice cooling environment spending time with my girl admiring the nature and seeing so many beautiful birds. (No checking bags, so we actually can bring own food)

Day 3 - We just spend the day with a morning walk to the small playground area, and pack our luggage. Went to China Town and have our dim sum lunch there. Heading towards the Changi Airport and while waiting after checking in, we found this place.

While waiting for our flight back to Kuala Lumpur, we found this area where we can spend our time playing games here and snap shot our photo inside. It will automatically display at the big screen at Changi Airport. We also took some pictures together and with different background. It was then send directly to our email.


Our nice picture together

We have a wonderful  trip to Singapore and I am glad that we managed to visit those places that I have earlier planned. Looking forward for another short trip this year with my kids.

Marina Bay Sands Trip - Day 1 to Singapore

Friday, July 17, 2015 0 Comments A+ a-

Finally, after 3 years plus I be able to fly again. We managed to book Jetstar at their promotion rate and this trip was my first challenge to bring my eldest girl ages 5 to travel to Singapore. It's ever been easy that I have to ensure I bring all the necessity and some snack for her along this trip. She is extremely excited and this was her first ride for Aeroplane. In fact this is also her first time taking bus to KLIA  and yes she nearly vomited. When it comes to car or bus ride, she will felt nausea. Luckily, we can stay at my hubby friend's place which really saves alot. The exchange rate gone up to 2.73 and we really need to spend wisely.

My plan for this 3Day 2Nites trip is to claim my previous winning Marina Bay Sands voucher to SkyPark and ArtScience Musuem and second day to Jurong Park. While 3rd day will be more relaxing walking around the town and enjoy some delicacies in Singapore street.

We reached Singapore at 12.30 pm, The timing is just nice to catch a train to Marina Bay. We stop at BayFront and it was linked inside directly into Marina Bay. This was my second visit and here changed alot! It was so convenient walking around the place with so many shops and guidelines to reach here. We change the voucher into the entrance ticket first and the staff is asking us details about this free vouchers. The new staff on duty was clueless looking at my free voucher. For kids they will charge SGD 18. This entrance ticket entitles us for coke drinks redemption.

After redeem the voucher, we went to the food court area in Marina Bay for our quick lunch. Varieties of food to choose here.

The Deep (From 6 June 2015 onwards): The deep sea is Earth’s largest reservoir of life but has remained largely uncharted by Man, with only 10 percent of the seafloor mapped so far. The Deep reveals the mysteries lurking in the deep through the display of perfectly preserved and extremely rare animals in crystalline details, accompanied by mesmeric images of captivating sea fauna and ethereal bioluminescent creatures, some photographed for the very first time. The Deep brings together the largest collection of deep-sea creatures ever displayed in South East Asia. Providing a unique opportunity to encounter the reality of the deep first-hand and to raise public awareness about the fragility of the deep sea ecosystem.

I can't really see myself there. It was so dark inside and my girl is freaking out. She keep on saying she is afraid ad why no lights on. Holding tight to my hand.


We have fun making our very own squid using only recycle items. A small area for a simple workshop

DreamWorks Animation: The Exhibition (13 June 2015 - 27 September 2015): Providing a rare glimpse into DreamWorks Animation’s collaborative and visionary approach to animation, and offering an insightful look into the processes behind the on-screen magic, DreamWorks Animation: The Exhibition charts the studio’s creative journey and explores its unique twist on the art of animation. Showcasing DreamWorks Animation’s creative legacy, featuring over 400 unique objects from the studio’s archive of rare and never before displayed material, the Exhibition includes concept drawings, storyboards, models, masks, maps, photographs, posters, paintings, and other original artworks. These artworks sit alongside amazing immerse and interactive digital experiences, and a wealth of additional digital content, including many specially recorded interviews with DreamWorks Animation artists that explore the creative processes of this unique animation studio.

Next we move to Dreamworks - Another exhibition hall that covers all kinds of my favorite cartoon character. Here the exhibitions looks more fun and my girls like it

So real with this magic screen

Enter into a big cinema for a short scene

Another section where the kids can have fun drawing on their own. I also enjoy few session DIY inside to make some drawings

Walking around Marina Bay building. Breathtaking place to unwind my self and admiring the scenery

My girl seems to be very excited 

The next station is to Sands Skypark. We are very frustrated with this free voucher. And again the staff did not know what is this all about and their system can't detect it and they are finding solutions to print out this free voucher. I have to stand there and wait for almost 20 minutes!!!!!!!!!!!!!  If they do not have such information of giving away free stuff and no proper flow of training or information given to the front desk, then the company shouldn't give such FOC thing and sponsor to those winners. Wasting time and the blur staff really makes me angry! 

Enjoy the best panoramic Singapore city skyline

We spend a while here taking pictures and enjoying the beautiful view. Lots of tourist sitting on the deck, but the staff said we can't do that. It is only 7pm. Could not wait longer for the night view because my girl is complaining..She is very very tired

Wonderful time together with hubby and my girl on our first day in Singapore. Poor hubby have to carry the backup luggage bag but it's really expensive to rent the locker inside Marina Bay Sand. I am proud of my girl that she managed to walk all the places I wish to go with her and she only start complaining in the evening time. I know she must be very exhausted walking since 7.30am taking train at Putra Station, and then take bus to KLIA, up to waiting for the flight, reaching there and walking again to the MRT station, changing station, and non stop walking into those exhibition halls and again have to walk back to MRT station to Jurong West station. Wow..what a journey. We all need more exercise..Good for her.
