Singapore through the eyes of Kalyra

In Singapore, we did a lot of things.

We first went to the SEA Aquarium. There were lots of marine animals there. We saw fish, sharks, sting rays, starfish, turtles and lots of other animals too. We even walked through a tunnel of underwater animals.

After the aquarium, we went to the Adventure Cove Water Park. There was one ride that we first went on called the floating river. You sit in tubes that float along the river and go through caves as well as mountains.

There were many other rides as well. There was one where you lay down on mats and you go fast down a steep water slide. Mummy beat me in a race down that one.

There was a wave pool and water slide you had to go up an elevator sitting on a two or one-seated tube to get to the top of the water slide. At the top, you go down a fast but long water slide that is in pitch black darkness. We didn’t get a chance to go on it, but a lady told me it was scary.

At the food markets, we drank a yummy lemon and lime juice and ate chicken kebabs. It’s what the area is known for – satay kebabs. That’s why it’s called Satay Street.

The best food of all was the cookie and cream ice cream sandwich we got from the Chinatown Markets.

At Singapore Zoo, we had breakfast with the orangutans and had photos taken with them. I thought it was so cool because we got to sit so close to them as we were eating. It was funny when Mamma Orangutan walked off holding the zoo keepers hand. The babies jump all over the trees and branches.

There were lots of other animals at the zoo like the deer mouse, the lemurs,  peacocks, and lots of birds.

I think one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen was the light show at Gardens By the Bay. The trees turned different colours in time to the music. Laser lights were coming out from behind the trees which turned different colours in patterns. It was like the trees were dancing.

We went inside a huge dome with a massive waterfall and lots of walks that took you to the top. On one of the walks, there were Lego plants and flowers in the garden. My Mummy and I loved the crystal garden.

Before the light show, we walked on top of the trees along the skywalk. The views were stunning.

Dino, our guide while we were in Singapore, was so friendly, funny and kind. I’m so glad he showed us his beautiful Singapore home.

  1. Derek,

    Thank you for the tips and sharing your stories. I have recently started using kiwi.com because of your recommendation … it is amazing!

  2. Hey Earl!
    I love your blog and have recently got back to Australia from a 2 week holiday in India! It was amazing!

    Have you heard of Jonathan Spollen? He’s been missing since the start of last year and may have been sighted in southern India. Would you happen to have any advice for the people searching for him?

  3. Congratulations on three years of fabulous blogging! I’m so excited that you are coming to Canada!!! What cities will you visit? When do you plan to be here? I can’t wait to read what you think of it.

  4. I know it’s after the contest, but I did get the travel goosebumps from reading what gets everyone else excited about travel so I thought I’d share my own! Whenever I read FB / Twitter posts from old friends I’ve made while on the road or while living in other countries, I immediately start reminiscing about new places I might check out, new ways of looking at the world, new food *especially*, and fun people I might never get to meet otherwise.
