Universal Studios Singapore   It's been a while since we last reviewed USS so we were super excited to be back! Universal Studios Singapore (USS) is considered by many to be one of, or if not the top attraction to visit in Singapore. It is also featured in our "52 things to do in Singapore before you die" list because we just cannot believe that some locals have not visited it yet! Picture Credit: Universal Studios Singapore For the upcoming Chinese New Year, USS have some special events planned up. From 15th January onwards, you'll get to ‘bai nian’ with Woody and Winnie Woodpecker and your favourite Sesame...

Some say Singapore is boring. That there isn't anything to do besides shopping, eating, movie watching and um... queuing. Why do people spend hours lining up for tyre manufacturer recommended dim sum, American donuts and black Japanese cats? They must be really bored to give up their time like that. And they shouldn't. We've done a lot of traveling around the world and Singapore easily ranks among the top in our list of most fun cities in the world. Our unique lives as travel guide authors / journalists / bloggers have given us the opportunity to thoroughly explore and see a side...

Here is a complete guide to the newly opened River Safari with directions, maps, feeding and show times and what you can expect to see at the soft opening.

The Chupitos Bar was first launched in 2010 as Singapore’s very first speciality shots bar. “Chupitos” means “Little Drinks” in Spanish and they over 200 innovative shooters! They concept is really unique and they serve up everything from "Pandan Cake" shots to "Milo" and "Paddlepops". Prices start at $12 for a pair of shots. TSL writer primate sums its up best in her review. "A young lady, and her friend, owns this bar and I have to say that their idea to start this is pure brilliance. It is one of the first of it's kind in Singapore and has certainly...

Jurong Bird Park seems to receive by far the least love among the three wildlifre parks in Singapore, behind the universally acclaimed Singapore Zoo and Night Safari. It's really sad to learn that even many Singaporeans have never been to the park before! We personally love the place, its huge, has tons of variety and its not as crowded as the other two parks. I blame the not so prestigious sounding "Jurong" name for having something to do with it. When Chloe's family came down visiting we jumped at the opportunity to take them there and did up a short little...

As he saunters in, slicking his hair back and removing his shades in one swift motion, a daunting dilemma awaits him... The Prancing Horse or The Raging Bull?   Let's face it, we have all dreamed of driving a Supercar. But realistically, even renting one would set you back $4000, not to mention dealing with the messy insurance that comes along with driving a million dollar car. Until now. Ultimate Drive believes that the thrill of a Supercar should not only be reserved for the ultra rich and wants to make the experience affordable. They also make the paperwork super easy - sign...

Whoa. Whoa. And Whoa Whoa Whoa. Is basically my first reaction to the whole affair.  People like me get to fly a plane? People who have glasses pretty much their whole life and gush when perfect-sighted people can have the possibility to fly a plane, can now do so too?  Whoa.  Yes, please. :) Quick Summary So here's quick summary if you'd prefer the shorter version.  Started. 2001.

A complete guide to the Maritime Experiential Museum which includes videos, photographs, directions and detailed information. The Maritime Experiential Museum is part of Marine Life Park. It is RWS's latest premier attraction, having just opened its doors on November the 22nd, 2012. I wanted to do some research before heading down but finding directions and searching for information proved difficult. Maybe they are too busy dealing with activist outcries after capturing their wild dolphins from the Soloman Islands. Check out this Save the World's saddest dolphins facebook page which already has 24,000 likes. Who knows! And aren't dolphins always happy? Directions to...
