Walking into the Universal Studios Singapore, the blood moon welcomes you to Halloween Horror Nights 2015, you are now ready to begin your horror and fun adventure (in the order of haunted houses and scare zones that you like). Take the first step inside to enjoy the aftermath of the blood moon, witness the chaos that the blood moon brought upon to the world, the evil and darkness worlds occupying Halloween Horror Nights 2015.

Haunted House – Siloso Gateway Block 50

The HDB heartland is an icon that many Singaporeans and visitors alike can relate to. At Siloso Gateway Block 50, the HHN-5 virus has turned the residents of the HDB Block into rampaging, flesh eating zombies! Are you able to get away in time from the zombies that want to eat your flesh?

Haunted House – Tunnel People

Hiding and living in the darkness, below the ground and in the passageways, the Tunnel People are getting ready to rise along with the rise of the Blood Moon. Can you feel your way out of the tunnels, can you spot them, can you avoid them?

Scare Zone – The Invaders

The Horde, a gargantuan ET race, has invaded Earth with the help of the eclipse. They are ugly looking and ruthless monsters. Can you spot their portal? Can you see them swamping our cities and laying waste to them?

IMG_1474

Scare Zone – conTERMINATED

This is a secret colony, code-named Sector #5. It’s Top Secret! Set up by the Government to quarantine the deformed and the diseased. They are left behind to fend for themselves, to survive on their own and they loved their oppressors blood, they lust for them. The Blood Moon is raising their mood and strength to an all time high, they are now feverish and want more bloodlust. Are you able to walk through without being lusted upon by the people from Sector #5 ?

IMG_1607

Scare Zone – Hungry Ghosts

They are always in the Seventh Lunar Month, eternally and forever, it can’t be changed, all thanks to the Blood Moon wreaking havoc on the Lunar Calendar. This village is forsaken and the villagers perform rituals of the Hungry Ghost Festival every night. Can you walk in and walk out of this village without getting stuck forever in the Seventh Lunar Month? Walk and you will know the answer to your question.

IMG_1559

Haunted House – Hell House

A big and bright house welcomes you inside, everything is made of paper. Please remember to make yourself at home, the Paper Servants of the Effigy House are wide awake from the power of the Blood Moon. It is going to be very hot because everything inside is going to be burnt. Can you take the extreme heat?

IMG_1515

Haunted House – True Singapore Ghost Stories: The MRT

The MRT train is a very widely used and popular public transport in Singapore. There is one underground train station built at a Malay burial site, there is a curse bestowed upon them. Now it has fulfilled and risen with the arrival of the Blood Moon. Toyols, hantu rayas and pontianaks are now exploring the MRT trains and tunnels, to stalk for victims. Walking along the tracks, you go back in time, to meet the author of the curse and his murderous henchmen. Can you walk back out and return back to the future safely?

IMG_1492

Congratulations, you made it! You survived Halloween Horror Nights 2015! Time to continue your night of fun and excitement with the 10 rides, shows and attractions inside Universal Studios Singapore!

iFly Singapore – Flying High Since 2011

iFly Singapore, this is one of the world’s largest indoor skydiving simulators, at a height of 56.5ft and width of 16.5ft, located at Siloso Beach on the sunny island of Sentosa. Founded in 2011, iFly Singapore had come a long way since her founding and she had been making good growth and expansion in their business along with their record breaking achievements and outreach programs to the schools and general public. I was recently invited to iFly Singapore media Christmas Party 2013, it was a fun event with lots of skydiving performances by the children and adults! Mr Lawrence Koh, Founder and Managing Director of iFly Singapore was sharing with us about iFly Singapore’s milestones, achievements and results during the past 3 years.

2T2J6033

2T2J6028

This was my first visit to iFly Singapore, even though I passed by this place a few times when I was in Sentosa. It was a pretty impressive indoor skydiving simulator and I hope to try out indoor skydiving next time when I visit again! At the iFly Singapore Christmas Party event, the skydivers were taking turns to fly/skydive inside the skydiving simulator! There were quite a number of young children too who were absolutely great in skydiving, somersaulting inside the wind tunnel, wonderful performances and breaking Guinness World of Records along with their adult counterparts!

2T2J6051

2T2J6042

iFly Singapore has big expansion and promotional plans for 2014 and one of their plans is to start expanding into Singapore’s education and sports sectors for the young ones with their Sports Education Programme. I personally find it very meaningful and a great idea to combine science with sporting activities and outdoor recreation for the young children. Not only can the young children learn about science, physics and aerodynamics, the young children can also pick up the sport and lead an active meaningful healthy lifestyle through skydiving! Learning a science subject by participating in a sports that teach you all of that and still having fun and being active sounds like a great combination to me! I hope to see more young children to be part of iFly Sports Education Programme!

2T2J6146

2T2J6176

iFly Singapore is also planning to launch their membership programme early next year 2014, providing a more attractive package for regular flyers who are considering taking up indoor skydiving more seriously. They are offering the proFLYER Basic and proFLYER Premium Membership Packages and do check out their website for more details and updates!

Welcome to Halloween Horror Nights 3!!

Ladies and Gentleman, welcome to Halloween Horror Nights 3!! This promises to be a scary yet very fun and exciting time to visit Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Singapore, located in the heart of Resorts World Singapore, Sentosa Island. I will bring you through the fun, scary, exciting adventures and experiences at Halloween Horror Nights 3!! There will be 3 immersive Scare Zones and 3 Haunted Houses, along with a Halloween Live Rock Musical.

Monster Rock: Halloween Edition (Pantages Theatre)

Do you remember the cartoon/movie Beetlejuice ? He’s coming to Halloween Horror Nights 3 at the Pantages Theatre with his fellow monsters/ghosts friends in this rock-n-roll musical! Featuring modern and classic rock songs packed inside this spectacular musical with lots of dancing and singing, accompanied by pyrotechnics and cutting-edge cinematic technology. This would be a good place to kickstart your Halloween Horror Nights 3 adventure!

IMG_6430

ADRIFT (Sound Stage 28)

After the Monster Rock: Halloween Edition, proceed to your first Haunted House titled ADRIFT! A storm-battered ship is found mysteriously adrift after being lost at sea since 1910 (Does the Titanic strikes a bell? Do you think it is the  Titanic?) The crew has vanished, yet there is a very mysterious presence that cannot be explained. This mysterious presence still remains today and it is still lingering around the ship. This ship was thought to have disappeared in the dark depths of the ocean, it didn’t and now the past is now revealed when you step into the ship. As you explore and discover the stories and interiors of the ship, in the eerie darkness, the past is never truly dead and will come alive Just For You!

Do not worry too much! It’s a little bit scary only! It’s fun and exciting! You will definitely walk out of the ship alive and can start to explore the other Haunted Houses and Scare Zones!

IMG_6434

Attack of the Vampires (New York) 

The town of Whittemore, once a charming town, it is now a graveyard of pale, fang-bearing living dead. The Daughter of the Undead has turned the rosy-cheeked residents into blood-thirsty Vampires! They are all around, on the streets, in a corner, somewhere out there, scary, silent (sometimes) and ready to consume you! Be careful, walk fast but don’t walk too fast and you miss saying Hi (or screaming) to the Vampires! You have been encouraged (warned) to look passionately into the eyes of the Vampires!

IMG_1206

Convention of Curses (Ancient Egypt)

After leaving the town of Whittemore, enter into Ancient Egypt whereby you can witness the magical and the unimaginable convention comprising of witches, wizards, and practitioners of the Dark Arts, gathering at the 366th Annual Convention of Curses. Remember to watch their beautiful (ghastly) rituals, you will be mesmerised by them! Mind your manners, don’t stare too eagerly or else a curse might befall on you!

IMG_1216

Songs of Death (Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure Back-of-House)

After leaving the Convention of Curses, it’s time to enter the house, known as Songs of Death! This house promises to be a very exciting (a bit more scary too!) journey into the world of opera troupe, the singing and the tragic stories behind what happened to all of them in the opera troupe. A starlet’s songs of vengeance turn into a spine-chilling requiem for her troupe. Enter into the world of a once flourishing Chinese Opera Academy and re-live the bloody massacre by a vindictive prima donna – The Maiden of the Opera.

Do not worry too much! It’s a little bit more scary only! It’s very fun and exciting! You will definitely walk out of the Chinese Opera Academy alive and can start to explore the other Haunted Houses and Scare Zones!

IMG_1220

Forbidden Forest (Lost World)

Before entering into the Haunted House – Possessions, you have to walk across the Forbidden Forest. In this special Forbidden Forest, only the brave ones like you venture through the woods of the Forbidden Forest after sunset. The Kingdom of Crone lies on the land of the forsaken and the forgotten, on the outskirts of the town. Look out for the Grand Dame of Black Magic, she eternally prowls the night for unsuspecting visitors’ souls to whet her insatiable appetite. The dark shadows are vicious, tread swiftly (don’t miss the fun too!) across the Forbidden Forest, remember that the morning is only a fool’s dream!

IMG_6461

Possessions (WaterWorld)

The grand finale, the third and final Haunted House, your last Halloween Horror Nights 3 adventure if you follow my Halloween Horror Nights 3 journey! This particular House, number 13, is for sale and do you want to buy it? You are invited to view the House no. 13 and they will tell you that the occupants of this crumbling mansion are recluses, however, the ghostly horrific truth is …. that they are imprisoned inside the House by evil spirits! This house viewing experience is so unique and interesting that you cannot miss/skip it! Their dream home is just a memory and do not be afraid to enter for a house viewing!

Do not worry at all! I survived the House no. 13 viewing experience! It’s just a little bit scary, that’s all!!

Halloween Horror Nights 3 was really very fun and exciting for me! It was scary at certain segments of the Haunted Houses and Scare Zones though! Overall, it was a great adventure! Call your friends, tell them about the fun and scary times that you can have at Halloween Horror Nights 3 and head down to Universal Studios Singapore to enjoy the Halloween Horror Nights! I loved the Haunted Houses, ADRIFT, Songs of Death and Possessions, it was a bit scary, however, I had an awesome adventure inside! Don’t worry too much! You will have as much fun as much as you are being scared!

Xperia by SONY presents Fashion TV Beach Festival

Xperia by SONY presents Fashion TV Beach Festival Singapore 2013, held at Tanjung Beach Club on Sentosa Island. The festival was a fun and exciting party with a White dress code, accompanied by dance music on the beach. It is one of the most extravagant outdoor events held in the world and the celebration of luxury. The Fashion TV Beach Festival showcased fashion labels from local and overseas fashion designers such as Gnossem, Armoire, Innerdesire, Vilasere, HOM and Zardoze. At the Fashion TV Beach Festival, they were able to view the Xperia smartphones there were on display.

2T2J9312

The biggest and most luxurious beach party in Singapore, thirty models from five countries walking down the fashion walkway “on the water” and spectators were able to view the swimwear that costs more than SGD$6,000. The party continued with different DJs spinning the music away on the beach dance floor through the night till the early morning.

2T2J9306

The gorgeous and handsome models showcased the various fashion designs of the different fashion labels participating in Fashion TV Beach Festival, watched, admired and photographed by the spectators and photographers. There were many gorgeous and handsome people too inside the crowds, enjoying, relaxing and dancing away.

2T2J9394

We had a fun time photographing the fashion catwalk from different locations, angles and perspectives. The best time for me was during Vilasere and HOM fashion labels fashion showcase during the evening, with the sun setting, giving it a nice blue hour skyline glow that allows me to capture the beautiful female models in their sexy lingerie outfits and the handsome male models in men’s underwear and leisure wear.

I would like to say thank you to SONY Singapore for the invitation to Fashion TV Beach Festival presented by Xperia By SONY.

Happy 40th Birthday to Sentosa !

On 1st September 2012, Sentosa celebrated her 40th birthday with many interesting and exciting activities on the sunny adventure island Sentosa. Visitors to Sentosa were given free access for one day on 1st September 2012 and many visitors flocked over to Sentosa for the fun and festivities.

There is a Sentosa history exhibition/showcase at Vivo City, on the third floor where Sentosa Station is located, near to the entrance for Sentosa Express. It was going back in time for many of us, who had very vivid memories of Sentosa in the past such as the Sentosa Monorail. It was a good time to look back in time, the changes and transformations that Sentosa went through. The 40th Anniversary Exhibition ends on 30th September 2012, do check them out before you cross over to Sentosa!

There was a special feature that happened on 1st September 2012, first-ever outdoor ice slide by the beach in Asia, located at Palawan Beach. There were two slides, one was 5m and the other was 8m. The ice slide was popular especially with the young children. At Palawan Beach, there were many more fun activities for the children and there were performers to entertain them! Flea for Good was held at the Sentosa Boardwalk on 1st September 2012 too! Part of the proceeds from the flea market goes to an adopted beneficiary.

The Sentosa Buskers Festival was back again in conjunction with the 40th birthday celebrations too! They would be in action from 1st to 8th September 2012, do visit Sentosa and catch them in action! More information on the Buskers Festival can be found here! There are many more activities and events happening during Sentosa’s birthday month.  Do drop by their website and check out more on their events schedule and what’s happening on Sentosa! 

Happy 40th Birthday Sentosa!! Have a great celebration!!

The Sentosa Flowers promise to dazzle and amaze you with many beautiful flowers galore, along with many Dragon sculptures to usher in the Year of the Dragon!

I was invited by Sentosa to a preview of the Sentosa Flowers, on Saturday 21st January 2012, thank you very much to Sentosa for their kind and warm hospitality!

There are many interesting flora and fauna on display at Sentosa Flowers – Enchanted Spring, let me take you through some of the highlights there, they are my favourite highlights of Sentosa Flowers 2012 !!

The Pink Floral Zodiac Dragon 

Located at the Merlion Plaza, you can’t miss this beautiful, cute, giant Pink Floral Zodiac Dragon, located in front of the Merlion, this is going to be a huge attraction for visitors, local and international, wanting to get a photograph of it!

Awakening 

This is definitely going to be another “hot” location at Sentosa Flowers, visitors would be queuing up to take a photograph of this exotic Dragon sculpture! You would be able to hold a big brush and “touch” the eye of the Dragon, when your brush gives it a touch, it would “come alive”.

Dance of the Dragon 

Located at Imbiah Lookout, you can’t miss this great piece of artwork/sand sculpture, a Dragon sand sculpture, surrounded by beautiful colourful flowers, dancing around them, ushering in the Year of the Dragon, bringing prosperity and good fortune to all!

Dinoland

My personal favourite at Sentosa Flowers 2012 !!! You must go there and find those cute dinosaurs!!! They are located at Dinoland, on the route up from Merlion Plaza to Imbiah Lookout!!!
