sentosa by cable car

In continuing our adventures with grandma, we headed over to Sentosa over the weekend. This time by cable car. You can Fly with Super Heroes as you make your way. We grabbed a Superman car on the way there and Batman on the way back. The girls now associate with these super heroes – Katie is Batman and Kristie is Superman. As you make your way to Sentosa, you can see the dolphins swimming at the aquarium. Tried as hard as I could, but the girls just couldn’t spot them. Maybe next time.

And finally, the last post from Sentosa and the girls birthday weekends. Sorry they are late, but better than never 🙂  As part of the hotel package we got free passes to Universal Studios and the girls first experience with a theme park. They loved most of it, but I think its a lot for them in 1 day.

Madagascar was fun and there was a boat ride, but they were so short  in the car, I am not sure they really saw anything. The also loved the merry-go-round and we rode that a couple of times.

We were able to get them to sit next to King Julien, but this was the best picture we were able to get.

Lesson learned, never the 2 year olds play with your camera. You will get tons of pictures like the ones below. This was only a couple of the 50 they took in about 3 minutes while Qumi and I looked at the map to see where to go next.

An easy dinner after a long day around Sentosa at Trapizza. This pizza place is right on the beach with a pretty good playground for the kids. Genny came to help us out which made it a little more relaxing for Qumi and I.

Kristie never lets me put her hair in a pony tail, she is usually shaking her head and screaming no! For reason, this night was ok.


After dinner we stopped by the hard rock bar to catch a bit of the live band before putting the kids to bed. Not sure they totally loved it, but smiled and laughed at some points.

din tai fung

Continuing on our weekend in Sentosa, we ate at Din Tai Fung for lunch on Saturday. I love the xiao long bao more than anything.

After lunch, we took a stroll around the island and wound up jumping on the monorail – which Katie loved!


Kristin loves getting into these things – here she is ready to make some pizza.


Katie is a bit less enthusiastic, but we coaxed a smile finally.
