The final part of our Singapore trip started with a VIP tour & seafood buffet at the exclusive Fullerton Hotel. The Fullerton Hotel Singapore is a masterpiece of understated comfort & elegance. Transformed from The Fullerton Building, built in 1928, its rich heritage, non-classical architecture, strategic location and stately grandeur make it a stand out piece of architecture not to be missed. The Fullerton Hotel’s prime location in the heart of the Civic District is in tandem with its rich heritage. Lying at the forefront of Raffles Place, it’s minutes from the City’s finest arts & entertainment areas. It also enjoys close proximity to Boat Quay & Clarke Quay, Singapore’s hustling riverside entertainment belt & the cultural venues of Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall, Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay & the Asian Civilisations Museum
Since opening in 2001 the award-winning luxury Hotel has successfully blended the old & new to present an unsurpassed world-class accommodation experience for business & leisure travellers.
Upon arrival, we were greeted by Jacob Lau, Assistant Marketing Communications Manager. Jacob was a delight, hospitable & charming Jacob shared the history of the hotel with us over lunch. We enjoyed our favourite king prawns, followed by some traditional Singapore dishes including chicken rice & seafood laksa. Jacob then took us on a tour of the Gallery, which was opened by the Minister a few hours prior to us sitting down to lunch.
It was back to our hotel after a few drinks & dinner as we had an early start the next day at Universal Studios. We woke up to thunder & torrential rain, we decided to go ahead with our busy schedule, as we would have missed this hilarious fun filled day. Those who know us, know we love a good dress up. We had matching dresses with sailor hats which could have possibly confused a few tourists thinking we were part of the staff or it could have been the blonde hair which we both have (as this is very unusual in Singapore). We were stopped continuously for selfies! At one point we had at least 30 people lined up for a selfie – it was hilarious, we were in fits of laughter!
Jennifer who never does rides, braved the world’s first Transformers ride, which petrified her to the point of nearly breaking my fingers & clawing my arms. OMG, we were both glad when it was over, so while Jen was recovering I went on the world’s tallest duelling roller coaster which was a massive adrenalin rush. We spent the whole day at Universal Studios, normally taking around 3 hours to get through, our day had added hours due to selfies from some of the tourists, LOL!
Universal Studios is fun for all age groups & when it comes to families the Far Far Away adventure land is a must do.
Overall, we fell in love with Singapore & everything it had to offer. Our favourite hang-out spot at night was The Warehouse at Clarke Quay where we met so many fabulous people of whom we sang Karaoke with & even singing along with the live band. As we were leaving for the airport the band dedicated one last song to us, “I’m leaving on a jet plane, which really put a cherry on top of our trip! Singapore is a short trip from BrisVegas, less than 8 hours & such a fabulous clean & safe City. Singapore thank you for the good times & good wines we highly recommend it & we can’t wait to get back!
