Singapore: Sentosa Beach, Malaysian Food Street & Crane Dance @ Universal Studios Singapore – Woottt, I went to Sentosa Island in Singapore last week. Brother and I actually have no where to go, shopping was boring, nothing to buy and expensive, so we just went to walk around in Sentosa Island, taste the Malaysian Street Food and also check out the Crane Dance at night.
Since it’s still early, the Crane Dance is at 9pm, we headed to the beach of Sentosa via the monorail. I have never been to the Sentosa Beach before and after visiting it, I have got to say, it’s not a good beach, Batu Feringghi is so much better because of great & relaxing view. From the Sentosa Beach, looking out you will see huge ships park in the middle of the sea and at far, you will see many refineries. The view is just not pretty for relax despite how clean the beach is and the tiny soft sand. I like the sand though, wonder where do they come from.
Malaysian Food Street
After beach exploration, my stomach started to growl and we headed to the Malaysian Food Street located right beside the entrance of Universal Studios Singapore. Funny right? Malaysian, eating out Malaysian Food in Singapore. Haha. Actually Malaysian Street Food is like a food court which all the Malaysian Food are really brought from Malaysia, Resorts World Sentosa brought in the group of Malaysian street food owners to cook and sell their food at there. Some of the taste are pretty authentic like the Hokkien Prawn Mee.
I’ve tried Penang Chendol and it’s not really good, but Ampang Yong Toufu was good too. Price starts from S$5. If you are Malaysian and is craving for Penang food, I think this is a good place, just that you have to pay extra S$3 for monorail entering the island. Haha.
At 9pm, we went to see the Crane Dance, which is a new attractions in Universal Studios Singapore. It’s actually two very huge cranes dancing. The cranes actually represent to birds and water sprayed out from both side of the crane are the wings of the big birds. There’s music and visual accompany with the dance and the show is about 10 minutes. Pretty cool, you can see the real cargo cranes at the port of Singapore from there.
That’s it for my Singapore short trip. =D
