  • Sci-Fi City

We went straight to Transformers: The Ride since there will really be a long line for it and we didn't got the Express Tickets so we have no choice but to fall in line and wait for our turn.

[caption id="attachment_519" align="aligncenter" width="300"]Battle Star Galatica Ride which I thought I'm going to die. Lol Battle Star Galatica Ride which I thought I'm going to die. Lol we choose the Cyclon ride and it was really cool. PS: Bags are not allowed inside you have to put it on a locker wherein you can rent it for $2.[/caption]

  • Ancient Egypt 

After our Cyclon ride we look for something to eat before heading to the next ride. We found this small restaurant on the Ancient Egypt part. Btw, restaurant concept will depend on where it is. We ate on Ancient Egypt part so the restaurant was like this:


[caption id="attachment_523" align="aligncenter" width="225"]Had the combo meal. I really love Indian food!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Had the combo meal. I really love Indian food!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!![/caption]

After eating we rested for a bit and went to the next ride which is the Revenge of the Mummy its a roller coaster where in the concept is of course related to the Mummy theme.

This ride also made me shout my lungs out because its dark inside you have no idea what will happen next and its a roller coaster ride, you will never know if you're going left/right/down and so on. Exciting! :-)

  • The Lost World: Jurrasic Park

This has a five great attractions including the Waterworld live stunt show which is not available that day. It also has a roller coaster ride, flying on prehistoric birds and the Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure which will make you wet on river raft ride.

It seemed quite real in the back of the truck as it interacted with people around it. Another cool part was a “street performer” we ran into. The dinosaur above.

  • Far Far Away

This part you'll be watching a short 4D movie about Shrek. Time to relax for a while and just enjoy the movie. Haha! There is also a cute little ferris wheel and a great kids roller coaster. Taking pictures/videos are not allowed inside.

  • Madagascar

This area is great for the young ones as the attractions are best suited for kids. We really didn't went and try this one. We just checked it out, took some pictures and went back to Hollywood & NY City.


We went back to Hollywood & NY City and watched another performance. This time they're dancing & singing.


We also checked the Minion store and bought my sisters some Minion pens. Lol

It was very tiring but fun experience, Universal! Until we meet again. :-)

Went back to Vivo City to do some pasalubong shopping and went home to wash up and get ready to meet up with O's friends for dinner.


We went to Little India after and ate at Swee Choon, it was a Chinese Restaurant around Little India.

Here's what we ordered:

[caption id="attachment_537" align="aligncenter" width="300"]All of these for $94 :-) All of these for 94SGD :-)[/caption]

[caption id="attachment_539" align="aligncenter" width="225"]Beef Brisket Beef Brisket[/caption]

[caption id="attachment_538" align="aligncenter" width="300"]Good Food & Good Company :-) Good Food & Good Company :-)[/caption]

The food serving is small but it tastes good. :-)

We went to Mustafa Centre, and I'm really surprised with it. It has 4 or 5 floors that sells different items every floor. You can buy affordable watches (which I did. Got a casio watch for only 27SGD), camera, other gadgets, perfumes and even groceries. You name it. Lol

And again we ended our day 3 with a hot shower and a goodnight sleep. :-)
