Had 10 hours of sleep, I feel great! I almost forgot that the nap that we got was only during the flight and we've been walking a lot. We just sipped the free coffee the hotel provided (I brought my own flavored coffee), took a shower then checked out from the hotel
At the hotel lobby
Bought more souvenirs from Chinatown to take home and had Chinese food for brunch. My sister tried the breaded baby octopus--tastes like squid but the texture is softer

In Universal Studios, we proceeded to enjoy the rides without bags, without bags! We secured our bags prior to in their coin operated lockers for only 2 SGD the whole day, located specifically near the Beach station train comfort room. I was impressed how they made their rides customized in a way it is connected with our all time favorite cartoons and movies. There was a rollercoaster type of ride with sudden drops that I never knew where it came from (I wasn't a fan of rollercoasters) that gave me a terrible headache afterwards and I was relieved when the ride was over. But overall, it is a wonderful experience and I enjoyed a lot.

We went to a mall to satisfy my sister's sweet craving. Afterwards, we ate in a Japanese restaurant quickly so we wont miss our flight back home.

Last meal in SG
At the airport, had a throbbing headache and sored feet. I got relieved when I used the foot massager free of charge and took some painkillers. I walked barefooted around the airport on their carpeted floor.

I couldn't believe that our journey was over. SG has a lot to offer but we have limited time. It is great to learn about their culture, meet people and try their local cuisine. Bye for now, hope to see more of you again!
