And now, I shall continue with our journey to our highlight of the trip, USS Singapore. We were told to be at the lobby as early as 7.30am. So, breakfast was early and it was fine. Quite a number of selections to choose frm. I didn't eat much, too excited to go. 7.20am, i was already at the lobby, waiting for the bus. FYI, our package includes USS tix, a night stay at Selesa Hotel (with breakfast), and return transfer to USS. Our group consisted of 30 people including the kids....Ramai kan?

& Syida kecik with hubby
|Clockwise: Im and mummy, Kak Imah, & dua budak kecik kat bawah tu,|
Faris (my son) and Ainie (my cousin)
According to the bus driver, aka our tour guide, we needed to depart as early as possible to 'sail through' the jam at the checkpoint and he was right, we arrived at USS, 20 minutes to 10am...just nice for our entry at 10am.
|These 2 kids were the most excited ones: On their way to the entrance.|

Anyway, lets' continue with the tour of the Universal Studios Singapore. When, u enter the studio, head straight to the popcorn cart @ Hollywood as there is a booth where u can collect the map/USS Guide and also the schedules for the shows.

A lil info about the ride: Kita ni ala2 Sam Witwicky la, where the fate of humankind is in your hands. So, during the ride, u need to race through the city, crossing through tunnels, down town streets and athwart high-rise rooftops, buildings, etc. Ada la adegan jatoh, lompat, optimus sambut kite...macam2la...
|Look at the waiting time.... 5 Minutes ONLY... I Like!|

After Transformers, we all went to ride Accelerator. YG ni biasa2 aja...tp memeningkan kepala, berpusing2.. ala, kat Disneyland dan Sunway Theme Park pon ada, Gneting pon ada, cuma nama sahaja berbeza.

Then, Faris went on Human Battlestar Galactica with a few of my friends. While Acu, Ainie and I just waited outside. X berani...ngeh...ngeh...

We skipped Cylon but a few of our friends went on the ride. In fact, Im, Kak Imah's son rode Cylon three times...THREE TIMES! Memang mabok laot...
We proceed to the Ancient Egypt where we were frozen in time @ the era of the pharaoh. A lot of statues here.. Memang cantik sangat tmpt nih...seram pon ada...

If u're afraid/not adventurous enough to try the revenge of the mummy, why not try this one..? Memang sangat tak menakutkan...very easy-ride, sesuai untuk acu..he..he..memang acu naik pon yg ni... Introducing... Treasure Hunters... Naik jip and then u ride through an abandoned excavation site, Egyptian setting, of course. Punyalah slow jeep ni, rasa nak tertido pon ada.. Nasib baikla pemandangannya cantik n exotic.
