SG Summer Escapade: Sentosa Night Experience

Siloso Beach, Sentosa Island
After the boring city tour and the quick lunch at a fastfood joint near the hotel, we headed to Vivo City for the Sentosa tour. To get there, we rode the MRT from Little India Station to Harbor Front Station where Vivo City is. There are several ways to get to Sentosa Island and one of them is through cable car ride which we want to experience. So after going around the mall and after buying some souvenir items, we went to the ticket booth to buy tickets for the cable car ride. In the ticketing area, we saw some flyers that showcase different package tours to Sentosa Island. One of these package tours is the Night Experience Package (SGD38) where we can save up to 43% off the ticket price. The catch? We have to wait for 5PM before we can purchase it. If I remember it right, it was just past 3PM then, a lot of waiting time yes but since we're looking for a package where we can save money, we waited for it. To pass the time, we went back to the mall and window shop. I also went back to the perfume store I checked out before to buy a friend's request (a friend gave me money to buy her a perfume). 

And then came 5PM, we went to the ticket booth again and bought the Night Experience Package. The package includes round trip tickets for the cable car, a ticket to luge car, skyride, Songs of the Sea, and a choice between Desperados in 3D or Sentosa 4D Magix; we chose the latter. And then off we go to the cable car station, excited with the cable car ride!

Marina Bay Sands
Singapore is the smallest country in Asia, with only a total land area of about 704 square kilometers including the reclaimed lands (source: Wikipedia). Before its land reclamation, Singapore is actually smaller than Metro Manila. However, with an average income per capita of USD56,694 a year, it now ranked number 3 in the list of the world's richest countries, next to Luxembourg (2nd) and Qatar (1st) (source: Singapore is part of our KL-SG summer adventure this 2012.

Food Trip: Kamayan sa Palaisdaan in Tayabas, Quezon

Kamayan sa Palaisdaan - Tayabas, Quezon
After climbing more or less 300 steps in Kamay ni Hesus Shrine, we heard our stomach rumble so we decided to have our early dinner at Kamayan sa Palaisdaan in Tayabas, Quezon, a floating restaurant along the highway going to Lucban, Quezon. We pass by this restaurant on our way to the Shrine from Lipa City. The restaurant, which is just a few minutes away from the Shrine, features a dining experience (with your bare hands, if you so desire) in a floating nipa hut.
