2016/04/21 Singapore, Day 02: Visiting Singapore's Hawaii, Sentosa Island
π 2016-04-21 00:00 in Singapore2016, Trips

On Day 2, we started by enjoying the view from our room with premium view :) and a good breakfast there:









Then, we took the long-ish way to Sentosa Island, Singapore's Hawaii for activities there:

We finally arrived at Adventure Cove where we checked in for our dive:

Since we were at the adventure cove park, and had paid for a ticket, I figured we might as well take advantage of it :) Amongst other things, we did a ray feeding, which was a hell of a lot of fun. Those rays were very eager and were climbing on us :)




We then went to do the rest of the park:






Next, we went to wavehouse, which had artificial wave machines. This was hard as hell. Each time I fell the water swept me up and threw me at the top. That twisted my neck pretty badly, but still, interesting experience:

The instructor tried to help me. Despite being a snowboarder and a skateboarder, I had a hard time:

But then, I got a tan with the sun, and so did Jennifer, and did better :)

That was their other wave thing, also interesting:

After this, we went by the beach, and did some luge, just like in New Zealand:


poor Jennifer was sad that the race boy in me passed her every time we went down :)

Even if the elevation change was smaller, it was still fun. I love sending Jennifer ahead, and doing my best to catch up with her :)

By then, it was time to go eat at Joël Robuchont (on its own page)

After a very nice dinner, it was time to head back home:
