Casual trip to Singapore - Day 2

We woke up rather early for the hotel breakfast. Did i tell you my favourite meal of the day is breakfast? especially hotel's buffet breakfast. We bought the breakfast vouchers for 3 days hoping that it's gonna be at least not bad, after all, how horrible can it be?

but....sadly, it was HORRIBLE! so, a piece of advice here, never purchase Value Thomson hotel's breakfast voucher, even thought it's quite reasonable, you'll end up to be like us, skipped it's breakfast for the next 2 days.

The set up was quite simple and nothing much. There were cereals and milk but i haven't drunk any milk that tasted so freaking diluted.

even the coffee from Nescafe machine tasted so diluted and yucky. My office has the exact same machine but it tasted so much better, why so? I thought they have a standard of ingredient ratio, how come this one tasted so......tasteless.

after breakfast, we got up and get ready for Universal Studio. ok, i admit we napped before getting to the shower. I love my hair right after i thong it, but it usually wont stay like this through out the day.

We had a slight hiccup getting to USS. We got to know from the internet there is free shuttle from orchard road to USS, so we took the MRT to Orchard and had trouble finding the bus stop. When we finally found the bus and the bus driver won't allow us to get up because i didn't bring my immigration card....so freaking stupid.

both of us, already quite frustrated that we had to walked so much to reached the shuttle bus stop, and when he didn't allow us to get up, i nearly scream at him. GOM decided to take the cab instead, save all the unwanted hassle and frustration. Just that, i officially dislike Singapore, call me childish, but i never like Singapore to begin with.

these bottles are available for sale everywhere in USS, it's like they make sure you see them so many times that you will feel guilty not to buy them.

Our initial plan was to go back to hotel and freshen up before going out again for dinner, but we were too tired and decided to settled at Hard Rock cafe, Resort world for dinner.

Ceaser salad and spring rolls, i didn't feel like eating meat

After dinner, we chilled at HardRock until it's time to go back. We walked around resort world hoping to find something interesting but sadly, most of the shops were closed. Weekday i supposed.

GOM caramel popcorns but we didn't eat much of it because it was too SWEET! brought the bag full of popcorns back to Penang and kept it in my fridge until it expired and threw away :(

DSC_1064
I broke my mug :( we couldn't manage to get a new one because the shop has closed . i bought it from a Hershey's store and was hoping i could find one in town on the next day but no, can't find any :( i brought my broken mug home though, i like it so much i'm gonna ask a friend to get it for me.

candies tree at night

We took a cab back to hotel and went to bed rather early. Such a tiring day but fun day. USS can be quite nice if only it wasn't so stuffy and hot..but it's in a tropical country, nothing much can be done.

If u were to ask me if i will go again, mmmm, probably not unless there's something special or else..i don't think so.
