20th January 2011, Thursday -- I went to Universal Studio Singapore, Resorts World Sentosa of Singapore on 14th December 2010, Tuesday. I did not stay overnight at Singapore. I stayed at Tune Hotel Danga Bay, Johore Baharu, Malaysia. The hotel (and other hotel in Johore Baharu) is relatively cheaper compare to that in Singapore, especially for a 'lone ranger'.
I departed from Tune Hotel Danga Bay at about 7.30am. I boarded on Odyssey bus (Website: www.odysseynow.com.my OR www.odysseynow.com.sg ). The bus fare is RM25 return. The bus service went through Tuas Checkpoint and arrived at Resorts World Sentosa about 9.30am.
The Universal Studio Singapore is opened from 10am to 7pm on that day. The entry ticket costs SGD66 for adult during weekday. I get 3 redemption voucher that have a combined value of SGD15 (3 X SGD5). One voucher is for food and beverages outlets and one more voucher is used to buy items at retails outlet. I do not remember what is the use of the third one. Actually, I considered myself lucky that I can get the ticket over the counter on that day.
The Universal Studio Singapore was closed at 7pm and my bus to Johore Baharu was only available at 9.30am. So, I went around the other parts of Resorts World Sentosa such as the Forum. Actually, I went out of Universal Studio Singapore after lunch. Of course, it is fun. But it is more fun if I went here with my family. My visit there at this time is more to sight seeing and 'jalan-jalan cari makan' rather than experiencing the entertainment there.
I went to Vivo City, where I bought Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit (at Challenger), using the Monorail service. Then I went down Harbourfront and have my tea there. I eat nasi ayam that cost SGD3.50.
Going back to Tune Hotel, Danga Bay at about 11.30pm.
