Singapore: Sentosa Underwater World & Dolphin Lagoon

This post is the continuation from our walking and camwhoring on Siloso Beach before adjourning in Underwater World.

Turtles and Japanese Carp was seen swimming in the pond at the entrance to Underwater World. Kids was seen happily feeding them with popcorn. The greedy fish of course chomping down whatever was thrown in the water. I just hope they won’t die from high cholesterol. Talking about which, if I took too much of popcorn, the next morning you will see acne popping on my face.

The star fish pond at the entrance was a big hit among kids. This is my first time holding a star fish! The proper way to held them is putting them on your palm while the star fish still submerging in the water.

But you know, some people tend to get carried away with their camera. Abuthen? At least a snap shot of the face for remembrance ma.

Other than the Star Fish, Stingray and another aquatic fish is allowed for visitor to touch. That makes the trip even more interesting. Not much picture was captured as the lighting was very dim resulted too many crappy shots.

(This shot was taken by Eldest Princess using our faithful pns Sony-10. She got this shot so perfectly. I’m impressed!)

It was a quick tour as we have seen something more interesting than Sentosa Underwater World. I reckon the Langkawi Underwater World was much better in terms of corals, ocean and sea animals (we have penguins!) minus the 83m long moving travelator, of course.

We took a quick bite at the food court. The Singapore chicken rice is so good. Of course it has to be the red version. Until today, my Son still asked for the red chicken rice.

After lunch, we hopped on the ‘top-less’ bus ride to Dolphin Lagoon. Woohoo, finally I get a change to ride on a top-less bus! I wonder what will happen if it rains all of a sudden. Roof top passenger holding on a umbrella? Gee….

Anyway, we was quite lucky as the weather is just nice. The sun was overshadowed by the cloud hence I do get very dull pictures. (psstt… but can photoshop la)

Older and younger SILs. Fyi, SIL stands for Sister-In-Law. I have people asking me what is SIL, BIL, FIL. Now you know the answer? Cleber girl, cleber boy.

We reached 10 minutes before the show starts and since all the seats was taken, we have to squat (after 5 minutes, I sat!) on the beach. Not a bad thing actually since I have a better view and nearer to the stage too.

Someone once commented that the Dolphin show is not worth the money. I almost gave it a miss but since our Underwater World ticket came with the entrance to Dolphin Lagoon, we make sure we utilised that too. Well, for my opinion, I would say different people has different interest. Something might interest you and something might not.

Hey, I reckon the show is good! I’ll give two thumbs up since I have not seen a real dolphin at close range before.

And I mean, I am really close as I was squatting sitting right smack where the emcee was standing.

Some of you may notice the dolphin is pink. According to the host, they are born grey. As and when they grew older, their colour slowly turned pink. Hmm…. you know what I am thinking?

Singapore cannot afford to buy young dolphins!

That’s wrapped up our trip in Sentosa Island. Everyone was dead tired so I did not want to suggest to stay back for the Musical Fountain. We left Sentosa pretty early at 4ish to The Merlion near Fullerton Hotel hoping to catch a sunset, maybe?

Stay tune 😉
