Butterfly Park & Insect Kingdom, Sentosa Singapore

Butterfly Park & Insect Kingdom is one of the top attractions in Sentosa located in the Imbiah Lookout area. It is surrounded with lush tropical greenery, showcases the stunning beauties of a different variety of beautiful butterflies and interesting insects.

These are some of the beautiful butterflies in the park that I would like to share with you.....

Stunning Blue and Black Combo.

There is an Bird/Animal Aviary where you can get a chance to feed the parrots or take a few photographs with them. For more information about the park, click HERE.

Underwater World & Dolphin Lagoon, Sentosa Singapore

Let's continue with our recent Sentosa trip from that Candylicious post last week. Since it was a rainy day we can’t do much of the outdoor activities except to stick with some in-door venture. Since AY and her group were keen to visit the Underwater World, we decided to get the 3-In-1 park tickets, which consists of Underwater World, Dolphin Lagoon and Butterfly and Insect Kingdom.

Underwater World Singapore (UWS) is situated on Sentosa Island and it is a unique and well-known oceanarium showcasing some 2500 marine life of 250 species from around the regions. Since its opening in 1991 till now, about 30 million of visitors have visited this exhibits and the UWS is always actively involved in regular product renewal and program innovation too. And this round it has being a year and a half since our last visit to the UWS and we do find some changes and new attractions added in it as well.

Look at this creature! Can you guess what is this?

These are some of the beautiful "Leafy SeaDragon" at Mid-foyer level. They are given this due to its resemblance to the mythical dragon and the lobes of skin that grow on them also act as camouflage, giving it the appearance of seaweed.

This time round we managed to catch a glimpse of the all-new Dolphin Lagoon which has being moved to its’ new location next to the Underworld World that completes a seamless journey of discovery into the ocean's depths.

Candy World @ Sentosa

Look at this!!!!! Isn't it beautiful with all the eye-catching “Lollies” hanging high up on the tree? My first sight on it was at a drizzling morning, which makes this a perfect and cooling Christmas atmosphere. This is Asia’s largest candy store known as "Candylicious" that newly opened at Resorts World Sentosa, opposite Universal Studios(USS).

Last week, I have friends coming over from Penang, Malaysia for a short trip and Sentosa is always one of the must visit attractions for tourists too. Although the weather for that day was not really good (as it has being raining on and off for the whole day) and the tickets for Universal Studios were Sold Out for the weekends, I am glad that everyone till enjoyed the rest of the attraction around the area.

Before Candylicious, Hershey's Chocolate World has already set their foot on Resort World where they store is just a stone throw beside USS.

If you are a chocolate lover, I guaranty that you won’t leave the store without grab a bag or so as there are full of verities of chocolate for your selection.

Garrett Popcorn at Resort World Singapore offers a wide range of popcorn choices from Cashew Caramel Crisp, Pecan Caramel Crisp, Cheese Corn and etc. So don’t miss this out too when you walk pass Hershey's Chocolate World, you can also try some sample before getting some.

Resort World Singapore @ Sentosa

Em... ever since Universal Studios, Singapore open to public access on 18 March 2010, it has being my thought to bring Rey to take a look at the newly renovated Waterfront Station and Theme Park in Sentosa.

Today is an sunny Saturday morning, we decided to have a some light Dim Sum breakfast at Xin Fu Yin Cha - 幸福饮茶 stall that is located at Food Republic in Vivo City Lvl 3. The furnishing in the stall was in wooden-style chairs and tables which make it look like those 60s -70s stall. Although it's about 10.00am in the morning, there is a lot of people queuing up to grab their favourite dim sum. Overall, we are still very satisfy with their ingredients but the price over here it's rather the same as those in it's main restaurant.

From Vivo City, we took the Sentosa Express near the ticketing station outside Food Republic at level 3. The Sentosa Pass is available at S$3.00 per person per day at the Sentosa Express station. You can also enter the island via Sentosa Express using your ez-link card which shorten your time of queuing up during weekend crowds.

At about less than 10 minutes train ride, we reached Waterfront Station. We were so shock with it's new outlook and changes compare to the previous musical fountain, orchid garden, fish pond and etc that this place used to have.

I am sure everyone will not lost their way because there are a lot of interesting signboards and direction sign. About 100m away from the Waterfront Station, you will reach "The Bull Ring" where you will find some Gifts and Collectibles retail stores as well as "Chili's Grill & Bar" at the corner.

Other than retail and food stores along the side of "The Bull Ring". This area also marks the Entrance to the "Universal Studios, Singapore". Despite of the "high" pricing, I was shock that the ticket for the day can be SOLD OUT even before noon time. Em.... that shows that a lot of people are still willing to pay for the price to go in......... If you wish to know more about the pricing, perhaps you can take a look Here. And if you are interested to pop-by maybe you can consider to book your ticket on line in advance to avoid disappointment :)

After walking around here and there, it's time to take a break, rest the feet and have a cup of coffee/tea. From far, it's not difficult to spot "Coffee Bean" and the opposite end of the bull ring at "The Forum". For our tea-break, we had ice-mocha blended and a slice of their raspberry cake. I love the environment here, it's so peaceful under the bright morning sun..... enjoy my cup of coffee and cake gives me the feeling of "I am on Holiday" mood.........

"The Forum" consists of two level of retail, banking services, restaurants and etc. You will be able to spot Hard Rock Cafe at level 1 just a few steps away from Coffee Bean. Other than food, you also can see DBS and HL banking......

2nd big attraction of Resort World will be it's Casino that is located at the ground level of "The Forum". After taking the escalator beside "Lake of Dreams", we finally saw the Grand entrance of the Casino. All Singapore Citizens or Permanent Residents must have a valid Casino Entry Levy (S$100.00 for 24 hrs) to enter the casino. And you will be surprised to see that beautiful "Lamborghin" outside the Casino entrance that will be given out to the Jackpot winner.

Look at the photo of the fountain on the left, that is the "Lake of Dreams" which is a unique musical extravaganza where fire, water and light are the stars of the show. Further down on the stretch, you will come across "Festive Terrace" which is surround by Hotel Michael and Crockfords Tower. Inside Crockfords Tower, they are range of branded shops in Galleria walk.

Look at these beautiful scenic, all these are taken during the Sentosa Express train ride. Sentosa really changes a lot during these past 5 - 10 years and every time you will be surprised when you get there :)
