Singapore: Sentosa Skyride & Siloso Beach

It’s been almost 7 years since the last time I stepped foot into Singapore. The main reason is because I was too kiam siap (stingy) to spend for the kid’s passport (RM150 x 3 = *ouch!*). But guess, sometimes our priority change according to our lifestyle. SIL’s HDB flat is still the same ole look except that she had refurbish her home theater carpeting to red. Awesome!

Being in a foreigner’s land, we were busy playing tourist and SILs & BILs is our tourist guide. Without wasting much time, on the first day we drove to Sentosa. 5 adults, 5 children and 1 infant squeeze into a car. Unbelievable! The first attraction is to hop on the skyride and come back down to the foothill by luge.

Kids queuing up for the skyride

Off we go, up up to the sky! (SIL shot this using my Sony T-10)


I thought I was brave enough as the ride looks kinda… nothing. But I was wrong. I was so wrong!


The rides was indeed scary! Scary cos our legs are dangling and there was not much safety precaution around. I was holding on REAL tight to the bar. (Check out the kelong in the background. Chun to max!)


The only time I pretended not to be scary – one hand up and the other still holding on to my dear life. kakaka. I cringe when I look Baby Princess. See that? One slight slip and …. you know what’s next. *glup*


Luckly I pass my camera to Daddy and he was brave enough to swing here and there to take pictures. I think I was cold like a stone the minute I sat on the ride.


At this instant, all I did was holding on real tight to the bar. No more goofing around for the camera. I have to squeeze my toes really hard so that my slipper won’t slip. Real heart throbbing, man!


Was definitely relieved once we stepped foot on ground and we hurried to the part go-cart, part-toboggan luge.


Model: BIL and nephew – The luge is a gravity ride with a unique steering and braking. It is kinda safe for all ages as long they are strong enough to pull the steering handle for braking.

Well, the photographer also need to apply some special skills to be able to stop at the curb to take pictures like this. I know, self praise is international disgrace. *evil grin*

I will update this post with few more photographs took by SIL using my PNS camera at the ending point of the track. Some very hilarious pictures.

Updated:  The rest of the shot here was taken by SIL using my Sony-T10

This track is towards the ending point where Eldest Princess got stuck in the middle of the bump >.<

After some wiggling, she managed to freed herself.  Smart girl!  Spot her helmet too >.<

Baby Princess’s helmet also not much different >.<

Next attraction would be the underwater world. We took some bus ride and some walking thru Siloso Beach and decided to stop to camwhore a bit. I can’t resist such things!

The moment I saw the ‘O’, I have so much idea in my mind. Sad to say, none of the kids is co-operating with me. You know, I have to yell at them! Oops! Now SIL know that I am such a cuckoo mother that get upset when kids doesn’t want to take pictures according to my way. *buried head in hole*


That is what I am talking about. The many ideas of ‘O’ and it’s superbly fun! I don’t understand why the kids doesn’t want to co-operate with me!!!

To be continue in next post on Underwater world. Stay tune!

    I tell ya, you are not alone with that skyride. I was on a much lower altitude ride at Langkawi and that was a cabin type cable car only. I was so scared too. I held Charlotte real tight and didn’t dare to move even just a string of hair :p
