Helloooo chewys! We are counting down the days (less than a week) to our customary wedding! Many friends like to ask me this question, “So how? Wedding coming soon. You must be excited right?” Answer is NO. Really, I’m not excited at all. In fact, having been legally married to misterchewy in September 2011, it feels weird to be preparing for the customary wedding now. Somehow, we feel like 老夫老妻 already. LOLOLOL.
Ok so anyway, I decided to pamper all my bridesmaids with a gelish manicure party recently. Hahaha it wasn’t quite a ‘party’ but it sounds nice so yeah. It was during the CNY period which explains all the goodies lying around! Nom nom nom~
Ying Pei was the first to reach so Krist worked on her first while we waited for the rest.
Cant remember what they were talking about. Haha.
Maureen spent 3 days making jelly hearts for us! So niceeeee!
Sorry my photo doesnt do justice to Maureen’s jelly hearts. It tasted damn awesome I tell you! I wonder when will I get to eat this again :P
Duno why Pei Rong looked so happy here. LOL.
All my bridesmaids really very serious. Sometimes I wonder who’s the one getting married. Hahaha. Discussion and taking notes in progress!
Maureen’s turn! She also knows Krist.
Bee seemed to be most excited about the manicure party. Hehe.
Playing with her Samsung Galaxy camera.
Adelene offered to be the last since she wasn’t rushing off to anywhere else. Yup at this point a couple of them had already left.
Me and Krist :)
Ok! Wait for my next post! Either this week or next ;)
Hope the long weekend had been a fantabulous one for all of you! Anybody took MC yesterday or even today? LOL. Ok jokes aside, I have decided to let this post jump queue because misterchewy planned a trip to Resorts World Sentosa S.E.A Aquarium on Christmas Eve for the both of us and I just want to share our experience with all of you! :D
We were kinda putting things to the very last minute and good thing misterchewy suggested visiting the world’s largest oceanarium! He booked 1 day passes at $29 per adult the day before but the queue to board the monorail was madness!
Well, good things are worth the wait right? Hahaha. Omgee we were so so so excited! :D I was totally looking forward to this because my last time being so close to marine life is at least two years ago, when I last dived at Krabi. Ok la this one is different but still quite close. I used to keep a dive blog! Haha stopped updating in 2009 :P My dream is to go scuba diving with misterchewy one day! I know he is reading this. :P
Yay! The Chewys’ Christmas Eve date at RWS S.E.A Aquarium begins! :))
Shipwreck! I wonder where did this come from? Don’t think they purposely sank a ship just for this..
This is totally cool stuff! Brings back fond memories of Underwater World too! :)
Ok I lazy liao. Shall let the photos do the talking :PPP
There was also a horseshoe crab in this tank which was totally cute. I was doing a half squat half kneel while taking photos when this little boy screamed, “HORSESHOE CRAB!” and he climbed and trampled over me. >_< Good thing he was really adorable so I didn't mind.
I learned through diving that we should not use flash photography when shooting seahorse!
Pretty interactive corner which I think kids will love. Look at the little boy next to me. He has a camera strapped to his forehead!
Not sure if it’s appropriate but we overheard this couple saying that they were hungry just by looking at this huge fish. -_-
The hubs said that this reminded him of a particular Pokemon. I think I know which but I don’t know its name.
Cute and bouncy looking jellyfish!
We were awestruck by the magnificent marine life before us! It was definitely a very spectacular display and many people just sat and camped in front of the viewing gallery.
Heh heh I was famished but not craving for any kinda fish in particular! Everyone was giving a $5 voucher because not all of the fishes had been transported to the S.E.A Aquarium so I’m guessing this voucher thingy will be temporary. I got a tuna and egg mayo focaccia sandwich and a bottle of green tea to satisfy my hunger! Not a fan of ham so I chose tuna :P
If you are feeling a little more extravagant, you can head to the Ocean Restaurant! They serve sustainable seafood :)
Continuing with the rest of our tour!
I have seen this moray eel a number of times when I went diving! Yes it’s quite scary and I have to control my buoyancy well so that I don’t crash into it. >_<
You may choose to have your photo taken at the entrance against a plain backdrop and collect (plus pay for) it at the end of the tour! There’s a standard template for the photos.
Souvenirs and soft toys for everyone! Nothing caught my eye. Maybe I’m really too old for this. LOL.
Heh heh. So what do you guys think? Worth the $29 per person or not? Somemore got $5 voucher. LOL. The Chewys had a pretty mind-blowing experience at Resorts World Sentosa S.E.A. Aquarium and we believe people of all ages will love it as much as we did! :) Not sure if I have the time or energy to do a summary of 2012 blog post so this could be our last post of the year! Happy New Year in advance! ;)
Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas everbardy! Omg it’s freaking 3am as I’m typing out this post! Yes I’m still sober. This year, misterchewy and I decided to do a Christmas countdown at Butter Factory and we were decked in rather bright colors :D
I’m currently staying over for about a month at misterchewy’s place and didn’t bring my nice nice clothes over. LOL. My OOTD was this chili red dress which was bought on the day itself at Topshop. I don’t usually shop at Topshop because I think it’s kinda overrated.
I think I’m very jialat. Not only did I not pack my nicer clothes over, I only brought my super duper basic makeup stuff too. So misterchewy dragged me into SASA at Bugis Junction and I started to pick out my glitter falsies, liquid eyeliner and mascara :P I’m spoilt! LOL. As you can see, I decided to go RED for our Christmas countdown.
Let the party begin! Whoohoo!
The cover charge entitles us to 2 standard drinks which were not enough. Lol. Ordered a jug of Vodka with green tea and it tasted like we were only being given green tea. Really diluted to the max. Felt cheated D:
I really had an awesome time dancing the night away with my Santa baby! Will be sharing more about our Resorts World Sentosa S.E.A Aquarium outing in our next post. Have a blast chewy chewy friends! Go out and have fun! It’s Christmas! ;)
It seemed like it was not long ago when I blogged about Casmin’s hen’s night party! Sorry that this blog post came a little late :P I attended Casmin’s wedding last month with my other other colleagues at Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel. Sweet memories for me because that was where misterchewy and I held our ROM!
I was really lucky that I had a makeup and hairdo sponsor for the wedding dinner! The timing was right when Crystal from CrystalLin Artistry approached me to do a review and I told her that I had a wedding dinner to attend and everything fell into place. She came over to my house with a huge makeup trolley bag! I was actually quite worried because it was raining that day but she arrived well on time!
Here’s a ‘Before’ photo after putting on foundation.
The process of the makeup and hairstyling was photographed by Crystal’s bf! Thank goodness he was around to help take photos :P
Crystal is a very friendly and affable makeup artist. She puts me at ease and I didn’t feel uncomfortable at all during the session :)
I told Crystal that I didn’t want to have my hair bunned up because I was afraid that it would make my face look rounder than what it already is :P She said that there are many hairstyles that I can try out even with my hair down.
She went on with doing a half-updo with a hair bow for me, which she later revealed that it was inspired by one of Lady Gaga’s music video!
OMG I mad love the hair bow! It’s really sometime unique and very cute too! :D
We are not done yet! Crystal suggested curling my hair too.
Can you see my purple highlights? Really satisfied with the curling effect that it has!
An ‘After’ photo with Crystal! :) Super happy with the overall makeover! If you are looking for a MUA for casual or wedding photoshoot, D&D, prom night or Christmas parties, you can contact Crystal and find out more from her at https://www.facebook.com/CrystalLinArtistry :)
A wore a long black tube dress which was also one reason why I preferred to let my hair down.
Good thing my parents offered to send me to Grand Copthorne Waterfront if not I would have a hard time walking around in my long dress and heels! This was the candy table setup!
This and the next few photos were taken by Casmin’s actual day photographer!
Love attending wedding dinners! :) Next customary wedding update whose one? Wanna make a guess? LOL! :P
Hola chewy chewy friends! The kind folks from Park Hotel Group invited misterchewy and I for a staycation experience review at Grand Park Orchard Hotel about two weeks ago! Guess what? This is our fourth staycation this year! :D
Grand Park Orchard is situated in the heart of town, right smack in the middle of where all the bustling activity is! Its strategic location makes it a very popular hotel choice among locals and tourists because there are so many shopping centres nearby. Do you know that the hot and half naked bodies of the A&F guys are just downstairs?!
Lobby is on the 4th floor and Grand Park Orchard’s hotel ambassador had already positioned himself outside the lift, waiting to greet us with his dazzling smile. We were promptly showed to our room on level 9.
We were given an ultra swanky room with high speed Internet access simply by logging in with my name and the password written on the card.
Our 29 to 32sqm Premium Room was simply gorgeous! We love the floor-to-ceiling glass windows which gave the lofty room a more dramatic and posh feel. And not forgetting the artistic designer wall mural! <;3
A large glass window for your viewing pleasure. Oh no I meant that you could soak in the tub and watch TV at the same time! What a brilliant idea! ;)
Can the hotel be any more generous than this?! It’s as though someone went grocery shopping at the supermarket and picked up every single variety of fruit that she saw. If you like fruits, good for you! If you don’t, I’m very sure there must be something on that plate that you will fancy.
A handwritten welcome card from the General Manager, which is a really nice gesture :)
The hubs was trying to use the hotel wifi while I continue snapping photos in our room.
Shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and lotion. All lavender! I like!
Just about everything that you need, it’s in there.
I was telling misterchewy that if the bath tub looks enticing enough, we could go shop for a nice shower gel for our bubble bath :P
I knew I didn’t have to worry about misterchewy feeling bored about being left alone because the reclining sofa (not sure what’s the exact term for it) looked really comfortable and he was already glued to the LCD TV.
Oh let’s backtrack a bit. The hubs wore another set of clothing when we travelled to the hotel and he wanted to change into the set which I had picked out and packed for him. However, the shirt had some creases and I took the chance to use the iron and ironing board in our room to prove my caliber as a good wife. *AHEM*
A quick look at the mini bar. Only the bottled water, tea and coffee are complimentary.
The fridge certainly is very well-stocked with most of our favorite drinks in there!
Takashimaya Shopping Centre is just across the street! I told you Grand Park Orchard’s location is awesome, didn’t I?
Photo taken by misterchewy using iPhone 5′s panorama function :)
Our outfit of the day! Both our clothes were gotten during our recent trip to Bangkok. I wore a light yellow dip hem maxi dress and paired a metallic gold bangle to go along with it. Cheery colors! ;) The hubs is usually seen wearing jeans because he works as an engineer so I made him wear shorts this time. Totally love the white long sleeved shirt with navy blue anchor prints that I chose for him! :D
We were totally famished and decided walk over to Mandarin Gallery for late lunch at Ippudo because misterchewy was craving for ramen.
We were walking around aimless and then misterchewy suggested that we go to *SCAPE to catch some toys! But nothing caught my eye :( Or am I too old for this? LOL.
*SCAPE is also one of the more popular locations for casual outdoor wedding photoshoot! I’m giving you people some ideas ok? :P Oh yeah, misterchewy was carrying a Sephora paper bag because we bought a really sweeeeet smelling shower gel! ;)
Was tired from all that walking and decided to head back to our hotel room for a short rest before dinner. Took a mini tour around first. The gym faces the swimming pool so if you need some motivation on the treadmill, there you have it! :P
How nice and thoughtful of the hotel to supply gym goers with towels, bottled water and energy drinks. Yes the energy drinks are free!
Bar Canary is located right next to the pool.
I think I had stretched my walking limits and was really eager to head back. Sky was turning dark too, from what we see when we reached our room.
LOL! The hubs was already waiting for me to turn around when I was done with taking photos and was waving at me from the toilet. He then proceeded to act as though he was surprised. -_-
Besides the hotel stay, we were also welcome to try the dinner buffet at Open House Restaurant.
Here’s a sneak peek!
I will be sharing more about the dinner buffet at Open House in my next post ;)
After dinner, we decided to take a long leisurely stroll outside Grand Park Orchard and soak in the Christmas atmosphere! The entire Orchard Road lights up beautifully at night.
At last! I’m as tall as misterchewy! Hahaha.
Time to chill out with some drinks at Bar Canary, which is located on the same floor as the lobby.
Shall tell you guys more about the drinks we had in the next post :)
Earlier in the day, we stopped by Sephora at Takashimaya and bought this Caramel Toffee bubble bath and shower gel. There were about 10 different ones for us to choose from. We smelled every single one and this is the one we liked best! Highly recommended if you and your partner like really sweet scent. A bottle costs only $15 and we used a third which was more than enough :D
The hotel provides bedroom slippers and bathrobes too. So there’s no need for you to pack your pyjamas along for your staycation! The bedroom slippers are of really good quality and very comfy too.
Good morning sunshine! We were supposed to wake up at 8am but overslept and woke up at 9plus instead! :O By the time we got dressed and reached Open House downstairs, it was nearly 10am. Good thing the buffet line closes at 11am during weekends! Phew! Hey, we both agreed that our bed was really way too comfortable and we had a really good night’s sleep! :D
Selection of bread and pastries are constantly being replenished. Everything is warm and toasty!
This was misterchewy’s favorite station! We had scrambled and poached eggs.
You can choose either plain or pork congee and various condiments are available.
Below are some of the a la carte buffet dishes that we had that morning. We were totally spoilt for choice and tried a bit from each station. My favorite dishes were the mee siam, eggs and waffles! :D
After a hearty breakfast, we just wanted to laze in bed. Good thing it had been arranged for us to check out at 4pm instead! We borrowed Crazy Stupid Love DVD from the concierge at the lobby. There were many other movies but most were already loaned to other guests in the hotel. But it’s ok because I love romantic comedies! :D
We had not watched Crazy Stupid Love before and had a really good laugh at some of the scenes. Ryan Gosling is sooooo suave and hawt! *Drools* :P
The hubs continued to laze in bed and read soccer news on his iPad.
Made a cup of Gryphon Earl Grey Lavender tea from the mini bar for myself!
We found that a copy of The Sunday Times had been delivered to our room early in the morning. Decided to make myself comfortable on the reclining sofa and catch up on the news with my cup of hot tea in hand. :)
All in all, the husband and I had a pretty marvelous staycation at Grand Park Orchard and managed to spend quality time with each other over the precious weekend. Currently, Grand Park Orchard is having a Christmas Escapade promotion from 15th to 30th December. Receive your last night free simply by staying for 3 consecutive nights or more! There’s no better way to spend Christmas with your loved ones than a luxurious staycation at Grand Park Orchard. ;)
Thank you Park Hotel Group for the kind invitation!

Yippee! It’s Friday, chewy chewy peeps! As promised in my previous post, I will be sharing our Genting Adrenaline Junkie Challenge experience in greater detail with all of you! I had also mentioned that I was actually quite nervous about having to go through all the thrill rides, especially when we also had to perform additional tasks while at it! Oh wells, a challenge has to be challenging. A few days before the trip, curiosity got the better of me and I started googling ‘genting adrenaline junkie challenge’ to see if I could get any info from the web. And I did! One of the more informative blog posts was written by Malaysian blogger and celebrunner, Runwitme and reading her story certainly got me even more excited, and yes, more nervous as well! Imagine having to blow a balloon while you are on the rollercoaster?!
The husband looked a little perturbed. LOL. I don’t know why. Probably as afraid as me?
Btw, this is the view from our room. Took a couple of shots before we went down for breakfast :)
Breakfast buffet was at First World Cafe.
The buffet line was quite miserable but we weren’t complaining because it’s not like we wanted to stuff ourselves with food before going on all the thrill rides!
After a quick breakfast, we adjourned to the Genting International Convention Centre (GICC) for our briefing which started at around 9.30am.
There were 19 pairs of participants and each pair formed a team. The hubs and I belonged to Team 18! And we had to paint our faces omg! I was like, “Don’t draw so big ok!”
All of us had to step forward to ‘claim’ our map. Basically, it was kinda like Amazing Race. All 19 teams had to complete the nine stations/rides located in the indoor and outdoor theme parks. No skipping of stations was allowed; we had to get on the ride, complete the task, get the station marshal to sign on the map and collect a piece of the jigsaw puzzle before moving on to the next stop. All our routes were different so we didn’t have everybody rushing to the same place at the same time.
All hell broke loose the moment it was announced that the challenge had officially started! LOL! We were given two hours to complete all rides and return to the GICC.
Whoohoo! The Chewys are just about to unleash the adrenaline junkies in them! Hahaha. Some of the photos in this post were taken with my Sony compact camera, while the rest were taken by some of the RWG people. ;)
Our first station was the Spinner! We were lucky because it’s situated just in front of the entrance of the outdoor theme park. Only one of us had to sit on the Spinner. Both misterchewy and I were given a card each and we had to count the number of stars! It sounds easy but it’s not! Didn’t take photo of the card but it was madness! I think I counted until I saw stars!
Spot the yawning dude!
We had to total up our number of stars and shout out the answer but our answer was wrong. Hahaha! And we were made to sing twinkle twinkle little star at the top of our lungs as a forfeit!
Our second station as drawn on the map given to us was the Corkscrew. This was one of my most dreaded thrill rides. My legs turned into jelly and I think my face turned pale as we approached the ride.
Each time I sat on a roller coaster, this is my most hated part.
And this too! Lol. Ok la not that I always go for such thrill rides anyway.
Guess what?! Only one from each team had to go up on the ride while the other was tasked to drink 100Plus from a milk bottle. LOL! The hubs displayed his heroic side when the marshal asked, “Who’s going to sit?” and he shouted “ME!” without any hesitation :D
If I had to come up with a caption, it would be “sucking while corkscrewing”. Lol! Was that what the organizers had in mind when they paired this task with this ride?! Anyway, all of us had to finish the bottle of 100Plus before the ride ended. So just imagine all the girls sucking really furiously. Omg tough job.
Oh yay! I was the first to finish the entire bottle! The marshal was really strict. We weren’t allowed to leave even a single drop. Hoho. The hubs did great too! He looked really refreshed after the ride, don’t you agree? Hahaha :P
Our third station was the Flying Coaster. I can’t remember if I had tried this ride before but it did seem a little less scary than the Corkscrew.
We were given two tasks to do before we could go up on the ride. First, we had to find 10 ‘flying’ words in the puzzle given to us. We only managed to find 6 until the marshal told us the words could be broken up too, and then we found the remaining 4 very quickly. -_-
For our second task, one of us had to memorize a tongue twister in 20 seconds. There were a few tongue twisters printed on cards and were laid face down for us to choose. After memorizing for 20 seconds, we had to pass it to our partner, take the Flying Coaster together, and repeat the tongue twister to the marshal.
However, the ride had to be closed for 20 minutes for maintenance check so we were all made to hula hoop for at least 10 seconds. As you can see, misterchewy is a better hula hooper than me. LOLOLOL. I was the one who memorized the tongue twister and it went, “I saw a saw that could out saw any other saw I ever saw.” I had to memorize under pretty stressful conditions ok!
Next up, we headed to Snow World at the indoor theme park! I think during the 2010 challenge, the participants had to finish a cold drink and ice cream at Snow World. I also said that I would rather do this 100 times than having to go through the thrill rides. Read on to find out what happened..
We were supposed to carry a tube up and slide down. When we reached the bottom, we had to pick an ice cream flavor as shown in the above photo. If you and your partner picks the same flavor, one would have to go up, slide down and draw again, until you get a different flavor.
The first time, misterchewy and I got chocolate. So he offered to carry the tube up and slide down again. Draws chocolate. Up and down. Chocolate again omg. And then finally vanilla. ARGH.
Our next task was to finish the 5 (4 chocolate and 1 vanilla) cups of ice cream in 45 seconds! IMPOSSIBRU.
We were made to finish all the ice cream before we could proceed to the next station. Boohoohoo! I had a love-hate relationship with ice cream that day.
The Flying Dragon is also located at the indoor theme park. The indoor rides are very mild and suitable for kids.
Guess what. We had to solve Sudoku and everyone took really long to solve it! Also had to solve two mathematical questions each before the Flying Dragon ride and tell the marshal our answers when we got down.
Deng! Deng! Deng! Deng! Space Shot! I tried this before at Ocean Park in Hong Kong and Movie World in Gold Coast so I have somewhat more experience than misterchewy. Haha! But I was still having cold feet before the ride D:
The station marshal flashed us some names which belonged to the Genting mascots and we had to memorize them before the Space Shot ride. I was quite confident that I could remember “Tabby, Allie, Bennie, Geno, Joe” but the moment I sat down and started to tremble, I forgot everything. “Geno.. Beno..” Wrong already la.
Almost wanted to cry when we were slowly taking off!
Forcing a weak smile but I was like NO I wanna get down now!
Ok the ride was really quite scary and we agreed that the second drop was scarier than the first. We made it anyway! :D We had a time penalty of 40 seconds I think because we couldn’t remember the mascots’ names. Lol.
Our task for the Pirate Ship station was quite a funny one. Within each team, we had to decide who would be sitting on the fourth or last row. The one on the fourth row would be blindfolded and had to help his/her partner draw his/her lips with a lipstick!
Not very obvious on misterchewy because we chose an orange lipstick. But it did give him a sexier look. LOL!
Oh yeah~ Oh yeah~ Our 9th and final stop was the Sungei Rejang Flume Ride! Both of us had a piece of napkin pegged to the collars of our shirts. Our task was to keep the napkins dry! Very easy because we could just zip our jackets. ;)
We rushed back to the finishing point which was the GICC Hall.
Our map and completed jigsaw puzzle! Yay! :D
With our fellow Singaporeans!
We were treated to a buffet lunch before the prize giving ceremony.
The most happening team!
Best Singapore team!
Best Malaysian team!
With two of Genting’s mascots! Ummm.. Can’t remember their names! :P
Ending off this post with a group shot. Hope you guys enjoyed reading about our Genting Adrenaline Junkie Challenge experience! :)
Once again, a very big thank you to Resorts World Genting for the kind invitation!
Wassup chewy chewy friends? A few weeks ago, I received an invitation from Resorts World Genting to participate in the Adrenline Junkie Challenge 2012. Resorts World Genting is located in Malaysia. We stay in the hotel near Kuala Lumpur. We search Expedia for great hotel deals. Oh boy, I was really thrilled because I could bring a partner along! Also, our transportation, accommodation and meals will be fully taken care of! In my mind, I was thinking, “OMG! I have always wanted to go to Genting with misterchewy!” Now that the opportunity has been presented to me, how could I pass it up? :P BUT, there was a slight catch. This part of the email was enough to make my heart thump really quickly. “You will need to go through the exciting thrill rides at the theme park plus additional tasks while at it. Kindly note that, you partner must take part in the challenge.” *GULP* We are not exactly adrenline junkies or daredevils! Anyway, all photos were taken using my old Sony compact camera because I didn’t think it would be a wise idea to lug my DSLR around at the theme park.
We were told to board the coach at Singapore Press Holdings (Toa Payoh) at 12pm. Guess what? There were only 8 of us! 3 bloggers and their partners, plus two Lian He Wan Bao readers.
Genting appeals to me as one of the couple getaway destinations because it is not too far from Singapore (about 7 hours coach journey. Lol), a one or two night stay should be sufficient, love the cool weather, and there are indoor and outdoor theme parks! :D We were really excited the minute we got on the coach but I also started to worry about the challenge because we had to go up on all the thrill rides in order to complete it :( Oh wells, let’s not worry too much for now! :)
Passports chopped! Wheeeee~!
Stopover for lunch! We already had ours with the in-laws before they sent us to SPH, so we sat somewhere and filled up our indemnity forms.
After what seemed like eternity.. We finally reached GENTING HIGHLANDS! :D :D :D It was around 7pm and we got there and I was freezing because I wore shorts. More comfortable to wear shorts on the bus mah. Hehe.
The PR folks from RWG, Oprah and JQ handed us our room card keys and Genting t-shirts that we had to wear the next day!
Walking to First World Hotel. My last time to Genting was many years ago but I could still vividly remember certain things.
We were told to deposit our bags into our rooms and gather at the lobby so that JQ and Oprah could take us to our dinner venue. This time, I made sure I changed into a pair of jeans! :P
Dinner was at Coffee Terrace. We had to walk a little bit to get there but at least it was way better than the First World Cafe. There is an ice cream promotion for the month of December, which explains the cute ice cream balloons hanging from the ceiling. Haha :P
We were pleasantly surprised when we stepped into the restaurant. Coffee Terrace seemed like quite a nice buffet place!
I think all of us Singapore bloggers went to whack the Japanese section first. Sashimi and sushi galore! :D
After a very satisfying dinner, Oprah and JQ very kindly showed us around the Visitor’s Galleria just next to Coffee Terrace.
With fellow blogger Cindy Kho (extreme right) and her friend, Charlie!
After that, it was pretty much free and easy for everyone. Since we had to endure a 7-hour journey here, we couldn’t just head back to our hotel so early right?! The husband and I decided to walk around and check out the indoor theme park :D
I jokingly said that we should go on one of the rides as a form of warming up exercise in preparation of the next day’s challenge!
Us in the front carriage of Euro Xpress! Of course not scary one la. But we pretended to be really scared and screamed all the way. LOL!
Checked out the casino next. Was quite surprised that nobody stopped me from taking photos. I’m assuming it’s ok?
It was just look look see see, we didn’t gamble. Anyway there were quite a number of smokers there so we left after a while.
Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas! ;)
Our room was located at First World Hotel’s Tower 2, on the 25th floor. When we were at the lobby, I asked misterchewy, “Our room is at which Tower ah? Tower 3 is it?” He replied, “Tower 3? You build yourself ah?” WIN. Bully me :(
When misterchewy learned that we would be putting up at First World Hotel, he kept telling me about how small and cramped the rooms were and that there wasn’t sufficient space in the toilet for people to move around comfortably. However, he was quite impressed because the room was spacious with a couch beside the TV, and a bath tub in the toilet. Turns out that we were given the Superior Deluxe room :D
Stay tuned everybardy! We will cover Genting Adrenaline Junkie Challenge 2012 Part 2 in our next blog post! :D
Thank you Resorts World Genting for the invitation!
Last Friday night~ Yeah we danced on tabletops~ And we took too many shots~ Think we kissed but I forgot~ Sounds familiar? :P We held a HENS NIGHT PARTY for our colleague, Casmin last Friday night! The party was at The Forbidden City by IndoChine, more specifically at Bar Cocoon on the ground floor. Before that, the ladies had a BBQ at our workplace while I was at a briefing for Goldkili & Frezfruta bloggers’ contest. Of course they showered after the BBQ and dressed up for the night! When we finally met outside IndoChine, Clarke Quay, it was 11-ish but the night was still young! ;)
Casmin, the Bride-to-be (BTB)! You will never be able to guess her age correctly on the first try! Super baby face! Anyway, I was really excited to be part of Casmin’s hens night entourage because I had never attended one before :P
With Casmin and Hui Shan! Hui Shan is a hot and sexy mother of a cute baby boy! :P
The rest of the ladies, Agnes, Shu Man, Angel and Katherine! :)
Apart from the BTB pink sash and tiara, Casmin was also made to put on this huge diamond ring!
So cool right~ The ring actually lights up! Ok I shall let the pictures do most of the talking :P
Uh huh. You must be wondering why was misterchewy present at the hens night party. He said he was worried about me and told me he would probably wait for me at McDonald’s or something and we could go home together after that. Really sweet of him considering that he had to wake up early to go to work the next day. The girls were kind enough to get him to join us! Hui Shan even whatsapped me that we have more than enough tiaras to go around >_<
We played a few rounds of “Guess the number of hands” drinking game. LOL Angel epic la! She kena so many times!
Katherine pouring the shots for the second round of toasting.
Casmin still going strong! Haven ‘toh’ yet! ;)
The girls decided to buy her a drink! Waterfall! Can someone tell me what’s the difference between a Waterfall and a Flaming Lamborghini?
Well done babeeeee!! :D
I didn’t realize this until misterchewy told me that this is our first time ‘clubbing’ together! And never did the both of us expect that our first time together would be with my colleagues. Hahaha! Interesting~~ :DDD
Thanks for taking care of me and staying by my side the entire night! <3
And if I’m not wrong, the guys at IndoChine offered us another drink. I was made to drink too since I’m also a BTB. LOL. But I shared this with Casmin if not sure gone :P
Next round! Tequila Pop! The hubby told me that this used to be his favorite drink back in uni days. :)
Angel hardcore la! So fast drink finish! :P
The girls on the dance floor YO! :D
As we were ‘dancing’ (LOL), one of the IndoChine guys told misterchewy to get us to go to the Ice Bar. We were kinda skeptical but went in anyway. We were handed trench coats to put on! It was freezing cold!
Can’t remember if it was Angel or Casmin who requested us to take a kissing shot. Seemed like misterchewy was more than happy to do so while I was a little intoxicated to be able to resist. :P
The rest of the night was like a blur. I don’t remember what I did. The hubby and I were the first ones to leave, at around 3am. Very fun hens night party experience for a first-timer! :P Congrats to Casmin once again! Yay! Can’t wait for your big day to come! :)
Have you ever wondered, “Singapore is such a small and boring place. What is there to do?” I’m pretty sure most of us locals are always trying to find new and fun things to do during our free time, be it with friends or family members! Yes Singapore may be small, but it is definitely not boring. If you are clueless as to how to spend your free time or precious weekends in the most fulfilling manner, I have listed five things that you can do in Resorts World Sentosa!
1. Playing at Universal Studios Singapore
People of all ages will love Universal Studios Singapore. There are 7 zones to explore – Hollywood, New York, Sci-Fi City, Ancient Egypt, Lost World, Far Far Away and Madagascar. Thrill seekers should not miss out on the Battlestar Galactica, Revenge of the Mummy and Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure rides! Fuel up and recharge yourselves at the various dining spots. For those who want to bring home some souvenirs, there are also plenty of retail shops for you to do some shopping!
2. Shopping at Candylicious
Shopping for candies and chocolates is such a joyous thing to do and therefore, I strongly urge that all visitors of Resorts World Sentosa should stop by Candylicious! You don’t really need a valid excuse to stock up on those sweet treats or colorful collectible items.
3. Dining at Malaysian Food Street
If your agenda is to come and have loads of fun at Resorts World Sentosa, I don’t suppose many of you would be willing to spend a bomb on fine dining or contemporary dining. But if you are, some options would be L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon, Osia, Rang Mahal Pavillion and Forest. However, I would personally recommend Malaysian Food Street. Prices are very affordable and you can try plenty of Malaysian hawker dishes. Don’t forget to leave some stomach space for chendol and ice kachang!
4. Staycation at Festive Hotel
There are 6 different hotels in Resorts World Sentosa. While I have yet to check into any of them, Festive Hotel appeals to me the most. It is situated in the heart of RWS, which makes it a popular choice for families with children. With unique features, each hotel room is catered to both parents and children. For parents with babies, Festive Hotel offers cribs and babysitting service at a fee. The vibrant colors and cool interior of the rooms are totally calling out to me now.

5. Gaming at Casino
Owned and operated by Asia’s largest and oldest gaming operator, the casino at Resorts World Sentosa is one of the world’s newest gaming halls. It features a wide array of table games, slots and electronic games. As with most casinos around the world, the casino at RWS is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, which makes it a great place if you enjoying playing in live casino poker games and also for you to work on your bluffing skills.
Happy Monday and have a great week ahead! Look forward to the weekend! ;)
