the dream team travels across worlds // day 6.

Day Six / 6th Dec

SENTOSA HERE WE COME πŸ™‚

Sentosa Island is a place I had not really been to – not properly anyway – the only time I had been there was when Glen and I went to that wedding, but since we just drove straight to the hotel and it was nighttime I don’t think it properly counts!

Sentosa has MANY things to do, way more than you could see in one day! We spent our day at Universal Studios, which is SO GOOD, and you can definitely spend a whole day there!!

We set off early and made our way over!

We’re hereeee! Universal Studios Singapore has 6 zones which are themed with a truly beautiful attention to detail: LA, New York, Sci Fi City, Ancient Egypt, Jurassic Park and Madagascar. All of the zones were cool, but the coolest thing was that it was like each of us had our own personal zone!

Sarah’s house: New York

New York is my house because it has Sesame Street AND all the retro-ness!!!!!!! I was so excited I couldn’t stand still πŸ™‚

the dream team wins at everything // days 3-4.

Day Three / 3rd Dec

Oh boy, this was one crazy day! Today we faced the difficult task of moving out of my apartment and saying goodbye to my flatmates. I didn’t take many pictures of the day because it was all very mad, but I got to show Caleb and Becca my faves prata and watermelon juice for lunch which was delish!

the dream team assembles // days 1-2.

The past week Caleb and Becca have been visiting me! We have been up to many antics and I literally took more than 1000 photos which is a lot.

Day One / 1st DecΒ 

I had my last exam on this morning, and Caleb and Becca had already arrived the night before, so I ubered over as soon as I finished to meet them because I was so excited that I couldn’t possibly wait for the train! We have all been staying together at the Pois, which has been a fun time!

Glen was home because he’s actually quite sick, but he made it out of the house to have lunch with us, which was nice πŸ™‚ We went for waffles at Craftsmen Coffee!

nana and grandad are here! // part one.

The past week my Nana and Grandad have been visiting in Singapore! Despite it being a so called “hell week” at NUS (yes, that is an actual turn of phrase here, the assignments get that mad!), we managed to do SO MUCH STUFF together, so that was really really nice πŸ™‚ It was so lovely to have them here, and to be able to show them around, and just to see them πŸ™‚ ❀ Here’s what we got up to πŸ™‚

PONTIEN πŸ™‚

Nana and Grandad got here Friday before last – I had a pretty crazy day of classes, but we met up for Pontien noodles for lunch which is one of the yummiest foods of all time! We skyped Mum and Dad too, as you can see πŸ˜‰

a visit from the parentals.

HIIII sorry, I disappeared for three weeks, but I’m back now! It has been a very busy time – my parents came to visit, and then there were midterms and there were a few stressful preoccupying happenings inbetween! But as of yesterday afternoon (after my last midterm ended), life has resumed a more normal pace, so here I am πŸ™‚ With many adventures to update you on! Here’s what happened while the parents were here in a brief summary form that really can’t quite do justice to the hundreds of photos we took but I’LL TRY πŸ™‚

Day One

2016-09-15
