Road trip to Singapore Part 1: Awesome stay @ St. Regis & USS.

Got sick on the weekend right after the fashion bazaar. I bet those spicy kimchi soup and heaty bbq pork I had at Gangnam88 has made it worse, but it was all worthwhile because the food there were so good. I feel better now, and is about time to write about the road trip I went with the Ooi's during Raya holiday.

It was our first time staying at St. Regis Hotel and I just wanna say wow. I absolutely love the set up and amenities in it, especially the bathroom - huge mirrors and bathtub with TV! Their butler service is a treasure hallmark of the St. Regis experience for over 100 years.

After we settled in our room, we went shopping at Orchard and had tea time at Antoinette. Most of the desserts were sold out when we were there, we then had macaroons instead. Perhaps I shall visit other branch in future. 

The next morning, lil Bryan woke me up at 8 to check out the swimming pool. Too bad they do not have separate pools for adults and kids nor jacuzzi, but it was good enough for a morning dip. 
Pardon my naked face.

Don't judge, I know you can see my bones here :/

We had a fun-filled day spent at Universal Studio with countless games and shows except for the angry-part which some USS staffs were inefficient of providing emergency treatment for unexpected situations. 
The queues on every games were crazily long, and we didn't know there are options of express pass or VIP pass on sales. So we queued an hour for the Madagascar water boat ride, and another hour for the Lost World Dino fly around ride but something came up. Basically when it was our turn to take the ride, we found ourselves have no seat to take in because the staff has given less passes to the VIPs. I bet is some sort of miscommunication and it has delayed the entire ride. I knew I might sound inconsiderate to people who were waiting for the ride, but we wanted to see how the USS staffs were going to settle such miscommunication (which was clearly not our fault), and I knew they were not gonna let the VIPs go down. They first suggested us to take the ride right after this turn, but me and huannie refused. We were so mad, not because they did not settle it ASAP and delayed the entire ride time (i know part of the reason is because of us); it was because they did not apologize right at the moment when they knew they deliver less passes to VIPs (which was their fault) to cause this happened. Anyway, the manager I assume has repaid our lost with 10 express passes. I'm not sure this incident was bad or good, but thanks to the innocent VIP guests and inefficient staffs we saved up a lot of time to play more games and watch more shows. 
You never know what worse luck your bad luck has saved you from - Cormac McCarthy.
