SEA Aquarium Resort World Sentosa Singapore Part 1 - Ocean Journey (Zone 4) - Jelly fish

Finally we started our visit to the world's largest aquarium. I did not use any flash so as not to frighten the fishes and jellyfishes.

My favourite must be the different species of the jellyfishes, they looked as if they were dancing. It was so beautiful, I could just sit there all day long watching them.

Hahaha this jellyfish looked as if it was holding a ball and doing aquatic ballet.

Some short videos of the jelly fishes.

SEA Aquarium and Maritime Museum Part 2

I did not even know much about the history of Asia maritime till I visited this exhibition. Very educational information indeed. Very nice to include the museum visit together with the visit to the aquarium (which I will post photos later).

After visiting the museum, do remember to visit the typhoon theatre to experience a perilous storm.

There's a time schedule for the show, so do check with the crew members. We were shown a video first before entering the theatre and the whole show is only about ten minutes but was fun cause we got wet by the "storm" hahaha.

My World Tuesday - SEA Aquarium and Maritime Museum Part 1

Finally we managed to find the time to visit the world's largest aquarium in Resort World on Sentosa. There's a lot of different species of fishes, sharks, jelly fish etc at SEA Aquarium. I love the jellyfishes the most, could just sit there watch them dancing so beautifully.

There's many ways to get to there. You can view the official website on how to get to there.

The ticket costs S$29 for adult (there's concession for some card holders like NTUC union members), S$20 for child and S$20 for senior citizen above 60 years of age. The ticket also include admission to the Maritime Museum and Typhoon Theatre.

Before entering the SEA Aquarium, we have to enter the maritime museum first. The museum was very interesting and visitors can learn about the maritime history of asia.

For other parts of the world, please visit My World Tuesday.

Travel Fair

Weekends, Singaporeans love to head to exhibitions at Singapore Expo where there are many exhibitions or fairs going on there. I was there too checking out some electronic appliances at the electronic fair and happens to come across this mini travel fair.

Interesting this see this booth from Malaysian Tourism Board. They have this teh tarik making demonstration at the booth and after that visitors were offered free samples of the tea. Teh tarik (literally "pulled tea") is a hot Indian milk tea beverage which can be commonly found in restaurants, outdoor stalls and kopi tiams in southeastern Asian countries like Malaysia and Singapore. Its name is derived from the pouring process of "pulling" the drink during preparation. It is made from black tea, condensed milk and evaporated milk. You can read more information from wikipedia.

I was at the travel fair trying to find some ideas on where to have a short break in neigbouring country.

Sentosa - Malaysian Food Street at Resort World Sentosa Singapore

My best friend and I decided to visit SEA Aquarium in Sentosa, will post photos of the aquarium in later posts. But before that, we need to fill our stomach with food. Of course we headed to Malaysian Food Street Food Centre near the aquarium to try some delicious malaysian food.

The favourite must be the claypot rice - is really so delicious and good.

The claypot rice was cooked using charcoal fire. We did not have to wait that long that day, only a five minute wait.

The spare ribs soup was not that hot enough, hope they would serve hotter soup the next time we visit them.

The satay was good but the price was a bit steep.

Ice Chendol Dessert - so yummy

Hot sweet potato soup - yummy

My World Tuesday - Japan Fair at Jurong Point

Last weekend, I was at Jurong Point shopping and dining and was pleased that there was a Japan Fair going on at the mall. Saw the national costume of the Japanese, love how the kimono look so beautifully especially the bows/ribbons at the back.

The huge paper origami of the crane was a reminder of how my late paternal grandmother used to teach us how to fold them.

A short video on the demonstration of making mochi or muah chee.
