Birthdays PUTTERING AROUND SENTOSA 7 November 2011

We spent quite a bit of time checking out Sentosa, since it’s free transportation by tram/railway around the island and there’s actually a lot to see and do. We were pretty impressed – what a lovely island to visit for a family outing! It was heaaapppps bigger than what I’d anticipated.. I actually thought it was possible to walk end-to-end and that it would be one or two attractions and that would be it. But it was pretty cool, with lots of family-oriented stuff to do, not to mention pretty beaches (obviously still not as lovely as the beaches in Sydney though!).

My favourite store was Candylicious. How cute is their decor?? Very Hansel & Gretel like, and so very enticing. It’s pretty much kiddy paradise 😉

Sugar overload

 

Hooray for chocolate!

 

Would I have the guts to wear these tees? Probably 😉

 

Put-putting around in their little tram

 

"MONORAILLLLLL..." (you'll know what I'm talking about if you watch Simpsons)

 

A Singapore Sling cocktail and tiramisu, to cap off a lovely lunch

 

The famous Singapore Merlion (head of a lion, body of a fish)

 

Gorgeous Michel Negrin earrings and Tiffany & Co heart necklace, 30th birthday gifts 😀 Yep, I wore them immediately, teehee!

 

At the Casino area

 

I’d expected Sentosa to be a quiet, sleepy ‘lil town, especially since we were wandering around on a weekday. But it was actually quite bustling and there were a fair number of tourists around too. We really enjoyed yourselves and really want to bring Hunter back soon 🙂

Can’t believe I moved to Singapore 4 months ago, yet this was our first time there together! We live under a rock 😛

        It’s lovely, but it comes across as a deep pinky-red on my monitor, rather than fuschia.

        Either way, it looks very stylish and comfy.

    I so wanted to bring my son to Sentosa when I was last back in SG… but we thought he may have been too young to properly enjoy it, plus it was super hot then. Now, your blog entry is making me regret it! 😛 Love your dress too 🙂

      Ohh next trip for sure! I’d recommend staying a night at the Hard Rock so he can play in their sand pools.. that’s the best part imho 🙂
