DAY 21 - UNIVERSAL STUDIOS


USS was really fun. The rides were very well done (Much better than Movie World - which SUX). The Transformer ride, i've never seen anything like it. It's a mixture of 3D Simulation/Roller coaster, and it's not dodgy at all, it really feels like your there with Optimus Prime and Megatron fighting it out in front of you.

All the other rides were good too, but the naming and theming was a little obscure, like 'Battle Star Galactica', or 'Madagascar'. What the!

DAY 20 - OLD NEIGHBOURHOODS


After a refreshing night sleeping in a king size bed with 2 other people, we head to some old neighbourhoods, but i can't name them, cause i didn't take note. All i know is it has something to with nyonya and peranakan stuff. We also have some yum cha (or as the Singaporeans call it, 'dim sum'), while listening to chinese new year music of course. We also get a 1lb cake, FREE.

DAY 13


Not a very photo-filled day. I was gonna take the day off and do some of my own things, but Mum calls late in the afternoon and asks me to come down to Tampines shopping centre, all the way across the other side of Singapore (1h MRT ride). There i met my second cousin Yang Yang. Last time i saw him was when in Singapore last, when we still liked Winne the Pooh.

DAY 11 - MARINA BAY SANDS (PART 1)


This place is nuts. It is definitely the coolest place i've been in Singapore. At first i wasn't quite sold on the design (a giant ship that sits upon three buildings) and i still don't know if i am, but it's verrrry effective. Marina Bay Sands adds a lot of value to Singapore, and helps make it one of the worlds top destinations.

DAY 6 - MALAYSIA


Thought i'd have bit of a quiet day. Stay home, catch up on some japanese...but at the last minute I was given notice that we were going Malaysia for a little visit. We left at 5pm and got home at 1am. Couldn't do that kind of thing in Australia. After 5pm the only thing you can do is scratch your ass.

NEW YEARS EVE VIDEO

The start of the video shows when the police blocked off access to the main area. A lot of pissed off people. At this point in time, when the fireworks start, you just have to watch it from where you are. 

By the end of the fireworks, it was too smokey to see the finale, plus all the light pollution. After it finished it took about an hour of walking through crowds to get on the train. You can see the zombie shuffle to the MRT. Singapore is already hot and humid, with this many people, you could almost see a rain cloud of sweat and persperation forming above us.
