We sleep in this morning because of our ever so comfy bed at Moevenpick Hotel and our room with full window overlooking the South China Sea.
We take the one monorail stop (which we could easily walk) to Waterfront Station for breakfast at Toast Box. Sufficiently fuelled up we head to Resorts World Sentos and join the queue for Universal Studios… entry is S$68 per adult (S$74 adult on peak days) but well worth the entry price. Continue reading
Sentos Island, a real island where everything is unreal including its man made beaches, monorail, and staged entertainment zones. This is the just for fun part of the trip.
We start our day with breakfast at the coffee house next door to the hotel and is just a quick kopi (local coffee) and cake just to get us bye until we hop it over to Sentosa. Continue reading

We eat quickly to try and catch the 8:00pm light display which happens at the Fountain of Wealth. Continue reading
