Travel Journal #2: (+65) Universal Studios Singapore + More Food!
Breakfast - Ya Kun Kaya Toast (亚坤咖椰吐司)
I woke up early in the morning and left by 8am for breakfast at Clarke Quay Center. I set out with a place in mind - Ya Kun Kaya Toast.
Ya Kun Kaya Toast (亚坤咖椰吐司) serves a traditional Singaporean breakfast set that consists of a cup of strong coffee, half-boiled eggs, thinly slicked toast with rich butter and kaya. Kaya is a jam made from a base of coconut milk, eggs and sugar and flavoured with pandan leaves. It's greenish in colour because of the pandan leaves and is both faintly sweet and savoury. Ya Kun makes and sells its own kaya, so they might have a secret recipe for it!
It was such a simple but savour breakfast. I can have this everyday and not get sick of it!
Universal Studios Singapore (USS) in Sentosa!
Universal Studios Singapore (USS) is located in Sentosa, a smaller island off the South of the island of Singapore. So many islands! I took the subway to Harbourfront MRT and walked over in about 10 minutes via a connecting bridge made for pedestrians. You can also take a cable car!
As planned, I got there early before the place gets crowded.
I came with a plan! There were a few key rides I knew that I had to try... So check the signs and off I go!
There were 2 sections to this ride - the blue one and the red one. I tried both and I think the blue one is more exciting even though the red one felt like it went faster.
Revenge of the Mummy
As you can tell, the theme is Egyptian. It was an indoors roller coaster with a mini-show to go along with it.
And finally, a crowd favourite - dinosaurs! I took the water ride at the Lost World. The queue for this was long but the ride was worth it in the end
As with all theme parks, there is so much to see and do. I can't possibly fit it all in here, so some selected pictures will have to suffice.
Theme parks are great and definitely not only for children. Or perhaps I'm still young at heart. Have you been to a theme park recently?
