Another unforgettable experience on our trip to Singapore was our visit to the Trick Eye Museum. Trick Eye is short for ‘Trick of the eye’, which refers to an art technique that turns two-dimensional paintings into three-dimensional images through the use of optical illusions. With that, 2D paintings on the museum walls, floors and ceilings appear to pop out of the surface and come to life.

 

I was really excited about this and I included this on our Singapore itinerary. There are a total of 90 artworks in Trick Eye Museum Singapore. The museum consists of six zones in different themes- ‘World of Masterpiece’, ‘Safari Kingdom’, ‘Star of Circus’, ‘Dream of Fairy Tale’, ‘Love In Winter’ and ‘Adventure Discovery’. My boyfriend and I had so much fun! Check out our photos below.

We just couldn’t fit, but who cares? That’s the art of love anyway.

 

Thank you for visiting my page! I’ll be blogging about our Madame Tussauds visit next time, so stay tuned!

On our fourth day in Singapore, we visited S.E.A. Aquarium, the largest aquarium in Asia with more than 100,000 marine animals of over 800 species, in 49 different habitats. I have come across majestic manta rays, enormous goliath groupers, Napoleon wrasse, unusually looking hammerhead shark, adorable dolphins and other gentle giants of the sea. It was a magical experience to see these living things that I could only see mostly on TV. I was awed and wowed by the sight. It was such a great experience I felt like an excited kid once again.

Hi Nemo! Yes, we call this fish Nemo because of the movie Finding Nemo, but this is called a Clownfish. Its color is really attractive it landed a role in Hollywood and become an A-list fish.

This is the Boxfish. It looks harmless, but watch out because it is toxic. It releases toxin to ward off enemies.

Manta Ray side view.

Manta Ray front view. It’s so cute.

Goliath Grouper. It looks small in the picture but it’s really big!

 

Sea Jellies.

Cute Dolphin. He just showed us his swimming trick.

Hammerhead Shark. The head of this shark acts as a detector that allows them to locate prey. So never mess with this creature.

After our tour, we sit down to chill and ordered gelato. So much information to take in. I can no longer recall the names of other fishes.

DSC_1032

Popsicles.

DSC_1033

Ice creams.

Before we left, my boyfriend and I dropped by to have a goofy shoot with this Camel. This is just inside the S.E.A. Aquarium building.

I hope you enjoyed the visual tour! I will be posting my Trick Eye Museum Singapore tour next time!

I owe you all an apology, I was not able to blog on July 11th for the part 2 of my Universal Studio Trip because of my birthday. Birthdays are the busiest day and after that I had a 7 straight days of work because I swapped rest days for my Manila trip. To everyone who were expecting the part 2 of the blog, I am so sorry but I can surely make it up to you all this time.

 

So to continue my journey to the happiest place on earth, we will now move to Ancient Egypt!

DSC_0777

As soon as you will enter Ancient Egypt, you will be greeted by this huge Egyptian stone structure. There will surely be no need for you to travel to Egypt when you can see it all here!

DSC_0756 DSC_0779DSC_0780

The first ride that we tried is the Treasure Hunters. We drive a dessert jeep through an abandoned Egyptian excavation site. I admit this ride is boring and truly not worth the 1 hour waiting time.

DSC_0781

I would really suggest for everyone to ride the Revenge of the Mummy instead. It is an indoor roller coaster ride wherein you will plunge into total darkness as you come face to face warrior mummies and scarab beetles. This is one of my favorite ride and you will surely feel a surge of adrenaline rush.

DSC_0931 DSC_0930

The guards outside Carter’s Curiosities store. They look friendly though.

DSC_0932

And of course memorabilias.

 

 

Next is The Lost World. The haven for Jurassic Park fanatics.

DSC_0786

I did not really like it in The Lost World, because it is very full with people everywhere. I’ve read in most blogs that people loves The Lost World and it is the highly recommended place in the entire USS. Maybe not by me because I am not a jungle lover kinda person. We didn’t really hang in there because the rides waiting time is almost 2 hours. But we did ride the Canopy flyer and Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure. With Canopy Flyer, you will enjoy a prehistoric bird’s-eye view as you soar over Jurassic Park and with Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure you will enjoy a thrilling river raft ride through primeval dinosaur habitats, expect to get wet or maybe soaked with this ride.

DSC_0787 DSC_0791

The Dino-Soarin ride. We did not try it anymore because it is a ride for kids.

DSC_0793 DSC_0797

My boyfriends’ tired smile. He was just really disappointed because Lost World is a world of Impossibilities; impossible to get a ride and impossible to get a locker to keep things, we went to Sci-Fi City so we can use a locker.

 

Another disappointment is WaterWorld because it was closed during our visit.

 

 

DSC_0773

But all my disappointments were gone when I laid eyes on the land Far Far Away. This is my most favorite place in the entire USS. I am a fairytale dreamer, I want to live in a castle, I love princesses and all beautiful things. I surely do not want to leave this place!

DSC_0799 DSC_0804 DSC_0809 DSC_0810 DSC_0811

The first attraction that we tried is the Shrek 4-D Adventure where in you will see, hear and feel the action right from your seat as you join Princess Fiona & Shrek in a fairytale adventure.

DSC_0812 DSC_0814

Next is Puss In Boots’ Giant Journey, a suspended coaster adventure with Puss and Kitty on this anti-gravity, swashbuckling adventure.

DSC_0816 DSC_0828

I got obssessed with lamp posts here. Even this corner really looks picturesque.

DSC_0838 DSC_0843

Chillin at Ben & Jerry’s. I did not order an ice cream though. :-)

DSC_0844 DSC_0851 DSC_0852

Enchanted Airways is a junior roller coaster ride. I like this ride, not boring and not extreme.

DSC_0859 DSC_0860 DSC_0867 DSC_0868

The beautiful streets of Far Far Away.

DSC_0871 DSC_0872 DSC_0873

Insert me here!

The other attractions at Far Far Away are Magic Potion Spin and Donkey Live.

 

 

Last but not the least is Madagascar.

DSC_0889

This is the smallest of all parks in USS. People who loves tropical places will love it here. I am living in a tropical country so this is like ordinary to me.

DSC_0885

We skipped King Julien’s Beach Party-Go-Round because the ride is for kids, it is a carousel ride.

DSC_0890

But we did try the Madagascar: A Crate Adventure. It is a boat ride with Madagascar heroes Alex, Marty, Melman and Gloria on the scene.

I hope you enjoyed this visual tour. My USS adventure doesn’t end here. I will definitely visit Universal Studios Osaka for me to see their Harry Potter park. Not next year but in the future.
