Christmas at Universal Studios Singapore

[ Sponsored ]

From now till 04Jan 2015, you can celebrate Christmas at Universal Studios Singapore (USS) with snow falling everyday, every hour. Ok, not real snow but still WoW!

Catch the “snow” at three different zones (Hollywood, New York and Sci-Fi).

Before we proceed, get familiar with the Seven Worlds orientation, and plan your own itinerary. Try to plan the attractions and activities close by, so that you do not need to constantly rush from one corner to another. (research USS schedules at this link)

Hollywood, New York and Sci-Fi City

Pretty Day and Night. USS has been decked up in glittery accessories.
Eager revelers could not wait to soak in the festive atmosphere.

On the main stage at New York, Dancing lights play on the building facade and Christmas Tree. Toy soldiers and Sesame Street will perform on the same stage too.

Do remember to say Ho Ho Ho to Uncle Santa Claus, he appears every hour to pose with visitors :)

Snow falling around Bumble Bee and Evac!

On a side note, always make Transformers 3D ride your first ride, queues of up to 1 hour is very common!

Sesame Street is all around us, and they never fail to raise the Festive mood up a notch!

Merry Christmas Ernie, Bert and Grover! As usual, Elmo always got the longest queue.

Do not miss award-winning “Sesame Street Saves Christmas” musical at Pantages, four shows daily for you to sing along. Besides the entertaining musical, the couch and aircon offers tired parents a 5min power nap well deserved rest.

Watch how Hollywood’s special effects allow a Cat 5 Hurricane to tear down a warehouse, specially hosted by Steven Spielberg.

The Lost World

We went splashing with Rapids Adventure. Do not bring raincoat along, as getting wet is part of the Fun.

Canopy Flyer, it feels so GOOD to dangle your feet in the sky!
So carefree, soaring just like a bird.

More birds and flight, smaller kids and grandparents can tame a Pteranodon.

Water World, get front row seat for a WET experience like no other!
(just pack additional underwear)

Far Far Away

Shrek’s Castle and Mud house. Even the loo is decorated for Christmas :p

Puss in Boot (upcoming ride with giant beanstalk!) and Enchanted Airways (roller coaster).

Is Boon Xin adorable or not? She likes to stick out her tongue in all the photos!

Madagascar. Move it! Move it!

Ancient Egypt

Smaller kids might love to play “Treasure Hunters” on the slow jeep.

.. the bold ones can step inside the temple and duel with “Revenge of the Mummy”.
Faster, darker, and reverse gear too!

Maybe it is too dark and Daddy cannot see anything, he thought Legoland’s Dragon is more scary.

The characters will pop up at different intervals to greet and meet. If you are visiting on a weekend (and selected Holidays), do not miss the once-a-day Dream Parade. Everyone from USS’s Seven Zones will come out on their floats to say Hello! (click for our previous Parade)

Universal Studios Singapore offers tons of opportunity for family photos.

We spent 11 hours to soak in Festive Christmas at Universal Studios Singapore, tiring but definitely memorable. Thank you RWS for the invitation :)

Changi Airport lifestyle hub

[ Sponsored ]

We started our December School Holiday with a swim. Well, maybe swimming was the second item on our itinerary, the first was checking into Crowne Plaza Changi Airport and marvelling at aeroplanes!

Changi Airport is a world renowned travel hub, we know it is also extremely popular with families during the weekends. try to visit during weekend evenings and you will find all F&B outlets full house.

Changi Airport has everything to offer within its three terminals.
Our Holiday need not require us to fly off, and we were eager to explore what Changi Airport has to offer.

So far so good, our 3D2N staycation at Crowne Plaza has take off on a high note :)

Room with a runway view, kids could not stop exclaiming and counting the planes during the first hours! When kids are contented and happy, we parents will have no complains :)

Love the flower motifs in the rooms, so soothing and relaxing, just what we need for a holiday.

The kind folks at Crowne Plaza allocated a connecting room for us, that means one more bathtub and two Televisions! All the boys decide to camp over in one room.

This is what we see (or dream) before we indulge in our afternoon nap. Window view with Blue sky and white clouds, jets ascending or descending. Best of all, our room is insulated from the jet engines noise.

We were tired out after the first night, and could only detect slight rumbling from the planes. But we noticed that the planes seem louder on the second evening, has it got anything to do with the persistent rain?

No Holiday is complete without a swim. From our corridor, the alluring swimming pool invites us to take a dip. Crowne Plaza’s swimming pool is one beautifully landscaped oasis.

We can even spot airplanes taking off from T1. Hello Control Tower!

Kids enjoy playing gun battles or hide & seek among the “bushes”. It was easy for Daddy to play crocodile and sneaked an ambush from behind.

Crowne Plaza’s Club Lounge is ideal for hungry kids. Delicious snacks to entertain us while we wait for dinner. Actually the sandwiches and curry puffs can be quite filling.

Chess or canape, beer (for adults only) or savoury dessert selection. We are spoil for choice. Kids would routinely empty the cookies jars!

Our kids are Tree Potatoes fans. Although Daddy mentioned before that Tree Potatoes production is geared towards slightly mature audience (not for kids, as video content has sexual innuendos and stereotyping), but these folks are pretty normal friendly upfront heh heh :)

When it comes to food choices, Changi Airport does not disappoint. Kids are exaggerating with their baby back ribs, Ginseng chicken or Ebi, but you get the appetite idea.
Food choices Changi

Daddy always wanted to pose some Fun UPSIZE food photos (source Ch5 Local UPsize) !

Need more Food and Entertainment? It is always one click away, bewildering options from Changi’s Three Terminals!

Breakfast, Donuts, Lunch, Coffee, Dinner and Supper. 7×24 365 days, this Airport does not stay still, and there is always a queue at 4Fingers!

Daddy has not experience any other international airport which can call itself a lifestyle hub.

T3′s Slide is always popular with kids who wish to burn off some calories.

Since the Yuletide season is near, we could ride Zoomoov’s Santa and reindeer ($5 per ride, $10 for three rides). Checkout their latest locations on their Website and Fanpage. The kind folks at Zoomoov even allow our kids a few extra rounds :)

Airport might be crowded but some sections are quiet enough for kids to test their driving skills piggy back each other. SengkangBabies always know how to entertain themselves :)

It is not unusual to spot little kids scooting along.

That was how we spend our first day and night roaming around Changi Airport, leaving our footprints and laughter all over the place. Tom Hanks (The Terminal) will not mind getting stucked in Singapore’s Changi Airport.

Besides flight status, follow Changi Airport lifestyle through their Instagram @fansofchangi, Fanpage and Website.
