We took the Sentosa Express to reach Sentosa.  But before that, we had our early lunch at the Food Republic, VivoCity's version of food court, also located at the 3rd floor of the shopping mall, beside the Sentosa Express station.

We may not used to old people still working but a job is important to old people for them to live.  I instantly remember my grandmother who used to be a table cleaner for Mcdo in Hawaii.

Hi po, I'l'll be there next month. Ask ko lang po, wat time kayo nagstart sa ussg? Okey lang po ba 1 or 2pm na kami magstart, maeenjoy ba namin lahat ng rides? Thanks po, I love reading your blog :-)

Hi Jodie, with its price mas ok sana kung whole day para sulit yung binayad nyo. Maybe it's okay if it falls on a day na wala masyado tao, para di na time consuming ang pagpila

Thanks sharing, Resorts World Sentosa Singapore definitely made me feel like a VIP everywhere I went, especially in their hotels. The staff from all four hotels greeted me with cheerful pleasantries the moment I strolled into the hotel lobbies. This reported has to admit that the service standard across the entire resort is remarkable. For detail see:
