SINGAPORE...HERE I COME!

Where on earth can you get to Singapore by paying RM78 only? Yes, I did it with few of my friends.

We registered ourselves with a private tour of 44 coach seaters. The 2 day/1 night trip covers visit to casinos in Sentosa Island + Marina Bay Sands, Singapore Chinatown and 8 course dinner in a restaurant in Yong Peng.

Our bus left KL at almost 12 midnight after picking up all passengers. As I was about to start 'dreaming', we arrived Yong Peng at 2am for early morning yum cha.

After almost 35 minutes of rest, the driver continue the journey and reached JB immigration counter at almost 3 am. There were no one queuing up and all of us managed to complete the procedure in less than an hour.

Again, as I was about to doze off, we landed in Resort World Sentosa Island at 4am. Though feeling very sleepy and tired (not even 3 hours of sleep), I was happy that we finally arrive at the Lion City.

After a short briefing by our organiser, the three of us went to wash ourselves in a nearby toilet before start to snap photos outside the casino as camera is strictly prohibited inside the gambling area.

Overall, both the RW and MB casinos were wide and huge. I was particularly impressed with the service by the staff who served hot beverages and bottles water on a push trolley. They will stop, if you need a drink. At the DIY drink counter, the staff will attend and help you in making your beverage.

You will find wide range of branded and exclusive boutiques inside Marina Bay Sands. Eventhough, few shops were having sale and I was eyeing to buy a t-shirt but decided not too cos' it is too pricey after conversion to Ringgit Malaysia. Anyway, I can get this t-shirt during sale in KL^-^

The food in Chinatown was good which was equivalent to Penang food. We had Oysters Omelette's and Singapore Fried Noodles (SGD5 per plate each), Mini Pot Seafood Noodles(SGD8.50)and Durian Crepe (SGD1.50). Double thumbs up for the oysters omelette's and durian crepes. No photo was taken as we were busy eating.

It was an experience visiting these interesting places in less than 24 hours via a coach. I was extremely tired and can't sleep at night when I reached home. After a full body massage on the following day, I sleep soundly like a pig!
