A DAY AT SENTOSA

Despite the notorious wet season in Singapore, our visit to Sentosa was blessed with good weather. Perhaps too good to the point it was hot and sunny the whole time we were there. It had been a while back since my kids last visited Sentosa but unlike the kids of my generation, I find kids today tend to possess great photographic memory of their early years. Here are some pictures from our day out (well, half a day) on the resort island and places of interests visite were The Merlion Walk, Underwater World and cable car ride.

^ Gorgeous and stunning jelly fish at the Underwater World aquarium. Such amazing creatures of the deep made this one of my favourite attractions.

^ Large predators co-exist with the calm and graceful Stingrays. There’s even a shallow tank where visitors are allowed to touch baby sharks and stingrays. Popular with the kids though the length of a baby shark is longer than the entire arm of my daughter.

^ This is the actual molt or empty exoskeleton of a large Japanese Giant Spider Crab. Once or twice every year, the Japanese Giant Spider Crab has to undergo molting which is the shedding of its whole exoskeleton in order to grow a bigger new shell. This one measures nearly 1.8 Metres.

^ “No pictures please, I’m running a business here” said the polite snake handler. Pictured here is not the hand of my daughter who were no doubt fascinated by the snake but dared not touch.
