Quite a long post

Assalaamu'alaikum wr. :)

This post will be quite a long one (i think) starting from Monday last week.
I don't know who would be reading this but i'm going to write it all down anyway so insyaAllah in the future i can read this back and smile at the memories. :)

The day i went to Universal Studios Singapore. Initially i planned to write an entire post dedicated to this day but never really got round to doing it. So here it is.

My cousin from Malaysia, Huda, along with her 2 brothers were here so my Uncle (along with his family) brought them there. And somehow, something something happened, and Alhamdulillah, i was able to tag along.hehe

The journey there was hectic. Since it was raining, we went there by car. So the 8 of us were crammed into my uncle's 5-seater car. Very uncomfortable but nevertheless, a memorable journey.

Around 30 minutes later, we arrived at Vivo City. Car parked, we headed on to the monorrail station and went to Sentosa. That's where the Universal Studios's located ( i just found out that day.eheh).

The Universal Studios itself is breathtaking. The huge rotating globe with the words 'Universal Studios' was the central main attraction. Around it were stores that i didn't get a chance to see because i was to busy looking for the theme park.heehee.


The rotating globe outside. The mists are mere water.


The queue line was really long so while my uncle went to buy the tickets, we (the others) queued up first. About 30 to 50 minutes later, were inside. At first look, everything seemed realistic. But once you get closer, you can see it isn't but it's still nice anyway.

There are a few halal restaurants around so the're no trouble with food- IF you have enough fulus.huhu. You'll need at least $10 for a decent meal. If you're ok with snacks, then, around $5 would suffice.

There are a lot of rides but i'd recommend a few:-
(in no particular order)

1) The Jurrasic Park water thingy (i cant remember the name.heh). This one is awesome. Very enjoyable. One ride can take 9 people so go on it with your friends. Its fun and thrilling at the same time. You'll be laughing all the way (well, we did.heh)

2) Shrek 4D. Its a short Shrek clip with 4D effects. I won't give too much details or it'll ruin the entire surprise. but i guess i can say, if you're extremely ticklish or easily scared, just beware. hehehe.
Shrek 4D castle.

3)Shrek Rollercoaster. This one is pretty much similar to one of the rollercoaster in Genting's theme park. Its has loads sharp turns and all but a very enjoyable ride.


4)The Mummy indoor rollercoaster(can't remember what its called.hehe). I really mean it when i say this: This ride is NOT for the faint hearted. Don't say i didn't warn you.

The entrance to the indoor rollercoaster.

BUT, it'll be such a loss if you don't go on it.hehehe. Honestly, i think this was the ride of the day. The effects are realistic and amazing and the ride itself...masyaAllah...


This is another ride on the Sci-Fi section. but it was temporarily closed. Seems cool though. Would go on it if it was opened.


Other than the rides, the souvenir shops sell is abundant with interesting and nice memorabilia. Quite costly though... At least $7 is needed for a decent mug. hehe.

That's pretty much it i guess. I'll add more if i can remember anything else.

Had my second dental appointment. The painful seperators are extracted. In it's place are two metal thingy cemented on my bottom premolars. It's for the braces's wires. This one didn't hurt as much and i was able to chew soft food.



Nothing much happened in between the entire week. Thought of updating my blog but there was one particular distraction. No, its not the World Cup.huhu. Its a PS2 game. GTA (Grand Theft Auto).hehehe. The game seems so realistic.huhu.

And then today, i had another dental appointment. My upper premolars are extracted. Wasn't as painful as i thought it would be. And also, i have my braces on. :B

Some have asked why i'm wearing braces. Some have assumed that people wear braces for mere beauty purposes.

Well,

not all who sleep are tired,
and not all who wake up are fresh.

Not all who eat are hungry,
and not all who bathe are smelly.

Braces may be worn for other reasons such as hygiene, health and well being. Not everything is as it seems. A field may seem green and beautiful from afar but once you get close and zoom in, you'll notice that some of the grasses have holes in them.

I'm still getting used to this braces...(it has only been a day anyway.huhu). I hope i won't have to talk much as it's quite painful to speak. Wonder what it'll be like in Gombak. InsyaAllah, i pray that it won't hurt as much then... hope no one stares. If you know me, and will be in Gombak with me, and you're reading this, please don't stare at my teeth. Jazaakallah khairan. :D

So, that's all for today.
Ilalliqaa' insyaAllah.
Assalaamu'alaikum. :)
