Korean Fried Chicken: Chicken Up Tampines

On the last trip to Korea, I wanted to try the Korean Fried Chicken but did not get a chance. There was a Korean Fried Chicken store below our accommodation but unfortunately when we wanted to try it they were closed (business must be good since they do not open on Sundays!). Not to say that there aren’t any Korean Fried Chicken places in Singapore, it’s just that they are (mostly) on the other end of Singapore (lol). So imagine my pleasant surprise when Chicken Up opened in Tampines... Read More>>

Cheonjiyeon Waterfall (천지연 폭포)
The calm before the waterfall ^^

After the satisfying lunch at Soban 소반, it was off to visit one of the natural wonders of Jeju, Cheonjiyeon Waterfall (천지연 폭포), an area full of natural monuments (e.g. from the wild Dampalsu trees, camellias to the clear and deep waters of Cheonjiyeon etc...). The waterfall got its name from the legend of the 7 fairies serving the King of Heaven who came down to the pond on stairs of cloud and bathed in its clean waters... Read more>>

Universal Studios Singapore (Sentosa) Guide

Universal Studios Singapore

Getting your tickets

Being the only theme park in town and having included a relative new ride (TRANSFORMERS The Ride: The Ultimate 3D Battle) into the family, Universal Studios Sentosa is the place to be if you love rides and themeparks. With 7 zones, there is plenty to see and do. Usual prices of admission tickets are S$74, but there are a couple of online promotions going on at the moment:

1. Mastercard Promotion - 15% off Adult One-Day Pass (U.P. $74)
Promotion valid till 31 May 2014

2. Easter Festival Online Exclusive
Visit Universal Studios Singapore from 18 Apr till 13 May and enjoy One-Day Adult Passes at S$66 (U.P. $74). Valid for Singapore IP addresses.

So who said being tech-savvy and planning a little ahead (even on day or the day itself) never paid off? If you know which day you want to go, have access to the internet and a printer, and own a credit (great if they are having a card promotion), it’s always best to check the website and make your booking online rather than buying on the spot and missing out...
