is one of the first songs I learnt to play on the guitar! :)
Hung out with Eugene at the S.E.A. Aquarium last week! And though i’m really not a fan of fish (unless they’re food) (even so i kindamaybeonlyeatbonelessfish) I think visiting one of Singapore’s attractions, touted as the “World’s Largest Aquarium”, is worth a post!
The SEA Aquarium isn’t just an aquarium! Before we could enter, we had to walk through a decidedly interesting museum featuring life on the sea in the past, piracy and how it was dealt with, voyages across the sea –郑和下西洋– and a bunch of other exhibits. :) Oh omg I just found out it’s called The Maritime Experiential Museum!!
Photos speak a thousand words so here we go~
Eugene wanted to take a photo of a hammerhead shark so I spent 20 minutes sitting cross-legged, nose against the glass separating a gazillion tons of water and us, staring at sharks staring back at me. Sharks have such hostile eyes. *shiver* And I so happened to read about the Shanghai shopping centre shark tank cracking and bursting open and ohhh asdfghjkl ><
All in all it was a pretty cool day– Informative, educational and fun, with good company to boot. :) Andddd i found an upcoming attraction I can’t wait to visit– the Adventure Cove Waterpark! http://www.rwsentosa.com/language/en-US/Attractions/MarineLifePark/AdventureCoveWaterpark/RidesAttractions
I love how crossing the little gap of water between Singapore and Sentosa makes me feel like i’m in a totally different world!! ;) Tourism-driven, artificial, government-made, money-machine… However you call it –though i really prefer the term holiday island!– I think Sentosa is doing a lovely job of providing the much sought for fun and excitement in this competitive little red dot we call home. Somehow, to me it just exudes a holiday cheer and atmosphere we’d be hard-pressed to find anywhere else. x) Singapore doesn’t have mountains or rivers or forests or lakes or horse-drawn carriages clopping away into the sunset… But maybe Sentosa and my amazing friends are enough. :)
