HONEY-moon @ SG (Day 5: Sentosa and Clarke Quay)

On our 5th day in Singapore we made it a point to wake up early so that we could make a fruitful trip to Sentosa. We went there via Cable Car and I’m soooo excited to ride it again, well we also tried this ride during our visit at Ocean Park HK last 2010. Cable Car is one of the most popular attractions in Singapore, now as we look at the brochure they offer Angry Birds Adventure. The Angry Birds Adventure comes to life when you take a ride in one of the 360 Angry Birds-themed cabins. We were so grateful that we experience the Angry Birds cabin. Yehey!

The experience was really something out of the ordinary! It was so amazing being transferred to the next island via air. Kahit na medyo takot ako, smile parin.. Sayang ang pagkakataon kung matatakot lang ako.. Haha.
Happy Couple :)

The Sentosa Play Pass is the perfect way to experience Sentosa’s fun-filled attraction. We save our money up to 70% plus it is very affordable and flexible.

We 1st tried the Tiger Sky Tower which is the Singapore’s tallest observatory tower that soars high above the surrounding approximately 131 meters and give you 360% panoramic view of the Sentosa and Singapore’s Southern Islands as well as neighboring Malaysia and Indonesia. Anyway, you don’t need to stand nor walk inside the cabin since it rotates while going up and down.

The heavy rains started to fall as soon as we leave the Tiger Sky Tower, Hubby decided to continue our adventure despite of the heavy rains. So we decided to enter the Sentosa 4D Magix (Pirates), in this ride you will experience a new generation of virtual movie magic. Syempre wala kaming picture sa loob kc may mga tumatalsik na tubig kaya tago mode muna si baby camera.. :p

After the Pirates, we took the Sentosa Cineblast or the Desperados in 3D. In this ride, we experience a state-of-the-art cinema simulation, ride and get caught up in a high-speed shoot-out on horseback riding. There’s estimated 20 saddles and they move like you ride in a horse, as the horse runs, you shoot all the robbers on the white screen, after few minutes they will post the picture on the monitor of the best shooters. In fairness, naka 3rd runner up ang asawa ko! Haha. Nakakatuwa talaga sya but please be careful, medyo sumakit yung likod ko after the whole ride.

Next, we tried the Extreme Log Ride. We are all seated in cabins which can accommodate 6 persons (I’m sorry, I forgot to take photos, excited lang kc eh.. Hehe) In this ride, you will feel the exhilaration of flying to the top of the highest mountain, the stomach-churning thrill of rushing into the deepest valleys and the excitement of being pitched by the water rapids. Wow!  A truly virtual “roller coaster” ride!

If you have motion sickness, you will definitely want to avoid this ride. It's exhilarating! 

Finally, the rain stops! We can now enjoy the other ride in Sentosa! Yahoo!! But before our next adventure, we visit the Butterfly Park and Insect Kingdom. It felt like going back to the childhood time when we always looking forward to go to zoo and park. Anyway, this garden is a must-see outdoor experience with a great variety of fluttering butterflies, birds and exotic insects.

Now, we are now ready to experience our next ride-  the Luge, this is the outdoor go-cart that gives you full control and traverse down the 650 meters of the jungle trail or the 688 meters of dragon trail. Oh I love this ride, this was really awesome! yun nga lang bitin! Huhu.  Anyway, before setting off we were instructed how to use and control the Luge.

Are you ready?!

Right after our Luge encounter, we board at the Skyride – an open-air cable-driven chairlift which offers fantastic panoramic scenery of the city skyline and coastline. Hubby and I had enjoyed the breathtaking view of Sentosa!

After the skyride, we walked along the street until we reach the Siloso Beach! Wow! May beach pala sa Singapore.. Haha. What can I say?! Mas maganda parin mga beach sa pinas! The sand is color brownish, it’s not pure as the sand in Boracay.

After photo ops at Siloso Beach, we opted to try the Fort Siloso Combat Skirmish; unfortunately, it was already closed! Waahh.. Okay fine, late na kami so our ride will be the Segway Fun Ride (sorry no photos allowed, not unless you will pay for their own photographer!) You need to wear the gears then wait for a queue for the simple basic training for you to familiarize the Segway.
The instructor would teach you how to go up and down, move ahead, backwards and left/right by leaning your body and tilting the handles to twist, turn and inclined slopes. Of course they also discuss the safety guide and action to take. It was quiet easy for me (yabang mode.. haha). It took us more or less 10 minutes to finish the two rounds.
Next, we took a bus to the Maritime Experiential Museum and Aquarium at Resorts World Sentosa. You will discover the "Maritime Silk Route" exhibition where in you can see the different countries with their precious artifacts. (Para narin kaming nakapag tour around the world!)

Malacca - Malaysia



Quanzhou - China

Malindi - Kenya

Muscat - Oman

Calicut - India

Galle - Sri Lanka

After our tour inside the museum, we chose to take some pictures at Candylicious! Seeing all these cute, colorful and cheery decorations is enough to brighten up my mood.

I remember during my younger years, together with my two sisters we used to sing to the M&M’s commercial on TV, “M&M’s chocolate melts in your mouth, not in your hand”. One of my all-time favorite chocolates, especially those with peanuts in them!

My husband loveeeeeees chocolate!

Our last destination is the Merlion (half Lion and half fish) located in Imbiah Lookout. Merlion offers a spectacular 360 degrees view of Sentosa.

After that, we went around Sentosa to take some pictures before we headed out to Clarke Quay.

It’s already past 9 in the evening, so we headed to party central AKA Clarke Quay. Clarke Quay is a really nice area on the river with tons of restaurants and bars. It is the right place if you want to drink all night long and there are street performers along the river to add life into the night. Party is everywhere in this part of Singapore! Para syang Malate sa dami ng bars! But hubby and I decided to just sit down, relax and just enjoy the scenery while taking photos.

Oh by the way, Clarke Quay offers the G-Max Reverse Bungee. OMG! This ride is extremely terrifying! You are going to throw up from the air at 60 meters height with a speed of 200kmph. OMG talaga!

This thrilling ride is located along the Singpore River and within walking distance from Clarke Quay MRT Station.
