Been wanting to go to Universal Studios Singapore since it opened but it was just never a good time. In fact I was just in Singapore about a month ago to watch Wicked (which was awesome) but didn’t get a chance to experience the theme park coz of time constraints. Argh!
So a couple of weeks ago I decided to just make plans and head there all by myself. A solo trip it would be! Again!
AND IT WAS SO WORTH IT!
I was only gonna be in Singapore for the weekend so I knew time was gonna be a factor. Friends had already told me that waiting in line for the rides was painstakingly slow. They also said that weekends were the worst with the largest crowds and that I should avoid Saturdays at all cost. So what did I do? I went on a saturday!
Hey, it’s not like I had a choice, I have very few leave days left so i had to make it a weekend trip.
But to make sure I got on all the rides I splurged an extra 50 Singapore dollars on the Xpress Pass that allowed me to cut queue…and kinda feel very important, and also kinda taller, I have issues.
Wanted a short break and couldn’t really decide where to go so I simply set a budget and started looking for destinations.
Finally decided on Saigon because I’ve never been there and most online reviews said it was worth a visit. How do you say no to a place that prides itself on coffee made from beans that have been through the digestive system of a civet cat. How exotic.

RELEASE DATE: 8TH DECEMBER 2011
IN A NUTSHELL:
Follow’s the lives of a cross-section of people living in New York in the hours leading up to the ball drop.
1) When Kominsky (Hector Elizondo) is called in. He’s the ball expert. Yes, they have a ball expert :O
2) Every scene with Halle Berry in it. Yes, I’m biased that way.
I find it very difficult to truly enjoy these huge ensemble movies. I always feel like there’s too much going on and when I do find something I like in it I can only enjoy it for a brief moment because it has to make way for all the other story lines that need to be told.
But having said that this movie is dramatic enough, funny enough and emotional enough to be entertaining…enough.
Much better than Valentine’s Day. And I’m a Halle Berry fan, so that helped 🙂
Just got back from dinner with a couple of friends and we realized something. There’s a slight possibility that I tend to order too much food. I dunno, do you think the pic below shows too much food for 3 people?
It’s been brought up before that if I ate less I’d probably be able to save loads of money and I’m starting to wonder if that’s true. So I’m gonna keep track of my food expenditure this month and we’ll see what my grand glutton-total is come January. We’ll find out if I’m really a Makan Maniac?
Hey, maybe you can tell me how much you spend on food a month for comparison’s sake. Ya?
Ooh this is making me nervous…I think I’m gonna buy something to eat 😉
