Happy 5th birthday to my youngest son and my personal bodyguard, Noah! 🎂
This photo’s taken on the bus heading to VivoCity Mall where we’ll be able to catch the Sentosa Express. It’ll take us to Resorts World Sentosa, where the kids will finally get to have their fun at Universal Studios Singapore.
The kids have been waiting for this day for months, talking nonstop about what they’d do and the rides they’re gonna get on. It’s heartwarming to see just how happy they are now that they’re finally at its doors.
Noah was especially excited because he gets to visit The Lost World where his favorite dinosaurs are waiting for him. While he wanted to make a beeline for the park, we managed to convince him to try all of the rides, beginning with Madagascar and Far, Far Away to our left.
After the first few rides, we brought the kids to Goldilocks where we got to try their fried chicken wings, hot sauce, and delicious Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. 🍨
For his birthday, and because we didn’t have cake for him, we got Noah a Shrek waffle drizzled in chocolate syrup.
Knowing how intense the lines can be, and that Holly really wants to go on all of the rollercoasters, we made sure to get her Holly and Jayson’s sister Express passes so they can cut the lines and get on as many rides as they’d like. It was the best investment—11 rides on 4 different rollercoasters, some of which were repeats ‘coz they had so much fun. 😂
Interesting enough, Cyrus was much braver about the rides when compared to how he was back in Japan. After getting soaked in the Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure, he asked if he could go on faster rides. When Holly wanted to do a repeat of the Enchanted Airways and Puss n’ Boots Giant Journey, he was lucky enough to get in through the Express line, and couldn’t stop talking about how much fun the rides were. ❤️
The experience at Universal Studios Singapore was much more relaxed and less stressful compared to our visit in Japan, and it’s all thanks to the choices we made this time around—bringing Noah’s stroller, visiting during non-peak hours, and getting Holly the Express pass so she could go on all the rides she wants.
Having visited 7 years ago, we’re definitely gonna be back. I like the idea of visiting after another 7 years, as the kids would be teens then and can handle themselves. But who knows, we might come back earlier than planned, and with even more things to do at Singapore.
