Amazing Race - Singapore (Final)

I swear this is the last post about Singapore :P

The last two area is Far Far Away and Madagascar. We enjoyed these two area as much as a child would be. They provide such entertainment from 4D movies and musical show. At Far Far Away land, we have entered a huge castle consisting Shrek 4D movie, a continuity story after Lord Farquaad died, become a ghost and (again) kidnapping Princess Fiona. This is our first time watching 4D and they have such effects from bumping ride on a horse (the seats shaking) to Donkey's sneezing (a sprinkler sprayed to our face when he sneeze, much like die punye hingus kne muka. gross pulak to think back. Haha)


Inside the castle

Cermin mata harus adaa

It was 15-20minutes short movie and we both enjoyed the show. Later we come out from the cinema and the pathway lead us to their souvenir shop. They have a miniature of ferris wheel ride called Magic Portion Spin but it seems like it really meant for kids (even I saw some adults sitting inside). Cute though.

Soft toy was too expensive for me but too cute to resist taking pictures with them

Signboard 'Potion Shop'

Next we met Donkey for his Live show, macam comedy talk. While waiting for it to starts we was wondering how does it looks like, is it a man wearing Donkey's suits? or just another short movie? but it all wrong when we saw the cartoon it self making an interactive live show using Digital Puppetry. Go google for the meaning. Haha. 

The waiting room

We dont have any pictures while watching him on the stage (or should I say screen) as 'No camera allowed' but the have a lady helping him for the interaction where she choose audience (most of the chosen one was kids). I remember one scene where he asked one of the adult audience who is Singaporean weather is it true that the law of the country didn't allow people spitting and the person said yes. Later he asked 'and why does your Merlion is allowed to spit all day long?' Haha. Speechless kejap orang tu. 

Some of the small fountain

You may kiss all the frog and they will turn into a prince :P

Cinderella carriage, next to Junior roller coaster (meant for kids)

They suppose to have the special character at Far Far Away area which is Shrek but we couldnt find him anywhere near there. Probably we missed him while watching Shrek.

Shrek's house

His toilet? Maybe?

Then, comes to the last place which is Madagascar. Ha..tak yah amek ticket flight meredah Indian Ocean. (FYI Madagascar is a island country located somewhere in Africa). At this time we are rushing for solat as it almost 7pm. So macam browse through the area je. Eh tapi sempat jugak layan water boat ride. Hehe.

 Tangan aku je ade.

Tak nampak dalam boat tp dalam boat ni tau

Comel je boat ride ni

Alex ;)

Takmo beli tp nk amek gambar. Haha

Madagascar area ni memang purposely built for the cartoon. All the area is about the movie. The bench, the roof, the road, sume macam dalam cartoon tu. 

Anda ingat ade scene ini dalam katun tu?

Mentang2 gloria gemok. Makan je, gloria.


Pastukan kitaorg nampak character movie ni tau tapi tak sempat nk kejar. Amek gambar pon xleh. Down btul. In a meanwhile, we are looking a place to solat. Puas cari tempat2 tersorok tapi last tanyer dekat Customer Service and alhamdulillah they actually prepare a room for Muslims.

The guest service where we perfom our solat

They even provide Sejadah and telekung tau.

Actually they dont recognize the place as Surau in the visitors guide but you can always ask them if you need to. Dah solat, baru rse sronok sikit. Sempat maghrib terus and catch the character. Yeay! 




Raja yang gile

Actually, all these Madagascar characters have limited of time for pictures session. They only gives us 10 minutes and everyone have to queue for every character they want to take photo with. I am not sure why but probably the suit is too hot for the person inside.

Amek gambar time malam plak

Did I mention that our ticket flight is 2155 but we are still at USS at 2000. Ha..rase2 menggelupur tak? Tp dalam pada nk cepat tu, sempat lagi singgah beli popcorn gergasi ni. Katanya pemes sangat tp sumpah sedap gile!! Tak rugi beli. Konon nk share la kan, last2 habes kat ktorg je makan kat rumah :P Tak cukup rupernyer.

Garret yang best

Kerel, kedai ni kat luar USS yer, bukan kat dalam.

Sebungkus je

Within an hour we have to catch our flight. Lari-lari tapi unfortunately tak sempat jugak nk catch check-in time. Captain tak bagi masuk dah, unlike the time when we are about to depart from KL. Mase kat KL ari tu even we are late for check-in time, the Captain still allow us to get the ticket tapi kat SG ni tak dapat plak. 

Makanya, cari lah tiket lain. Sep bek Air Asia ade lg. Ranap duit Euro ngn USD gua because we dont have cash on our hand plus no ATM machine have Meps. Banyak luck sbenarnya malam tu despite missed the plane - I could left my Euro and USD money as we both dont have enough cash or Air Asia could have close the check-in counter and we both have to spend the night in the airport to take bus back to KL. 

It was indeed an Amazing Race as we both running here and there for that two days. Trying to grab all the opportunity of visiting another country and at the same time juggling our planning here and there was indeed a tiring but spending the experience with the love of my life making the whole trip spectacular :)
