Disappointments entailed but little did I realise, that was my final trip to Singapore until last week. The irony was that I finally decided to make a trip there to attend the wedding of one of my primary school enemies. The 'enemy' was my primary school rival who is now a dentist there.
I began the trip there midweek at the worst haze season. That, however, did not deter us from visiting the Universal Studios at Sentosa. Without doing any research, I got conned into sitting on the extreme Battlestar Galactica roller coaster which was previously closed for almost to years for safety reasons.
Behind us is the Battlestar Galatica - we sat on both the human and cylon tracks! Madness!
A solo trip turned out to be a sisters trip.. then a cousins trip. It was really fun albeit the tiring coffee withdrawals I often had.

Iconic landmarks captured in photos despite the haze
Or silly pictures like this..
At Orchard Central after dinner
The climax of the trip was the wedding banquet I attended, which was just a couple of stops away by bus. It was grand and touching. I did not manage to get nice photos to justify how beautiful and awesome the banquet was. The bonus bit was meeting up with a childhood friend who is like an ultra far relation of mine whom I haven't met in almost twenty years!
The verdict? Definitely worth another visit in the future - pending the currency exchange, of course!
