Early October, the parents decided to take us over the bridge (literally) to Singapore and spend a day at the Universal Studios there. So the process started with me looking for hotel packages that include the tickets plus transportation from the hotel to Sentosa Island where the theme park is located.
We hmm-ed and haww-ed while Dad got the passport renewal forms for us. He then got us booked for a package that included 3 days 2 nights at a hotel, breakfast, transport from the hotel to the park and back and the tickets. It was pretty cheap, around 350 Ringgit per person which is about 115 USD.
So, we took off from home on Monday morning, arrived at the hotel around 2 pm and checked in. The parents had a room with a queen sized bed and it had a connecting door to our room which had two single beds.
This is the view from our room. A bit to the left is the bridge that connects Malaysia to Singapore and I remember joking to my brother that land over there is Singapore and hey, I was right.
Excuse the mess. I forgot to take a picture before the Lil Bro decided to throw things around the room and make it more like home. Of course, the beds were so comfy and bounce-able that I cuddled up to a book under the covers.
Sorry, but I just couldn't resist taking pictures of what was waiting for us in the bathroom. The lotion is one of the best I have ever had. The hotel has this kind of new trendy vibe to it and it was a pretty nice stay.
A unique thing about this hotel was the way it was shaped like a triangle. This is what greeted us when we got out of the room. Yes, its dizzying and we were on the 12th floor. If one look down, they'll see the lounge where for the two nights we were there, there was performances going on.

The next post will be about the day spent in Universal Studios. Expect pictures of me looking sweaty, super tanned and just excited.
