Underwater World Singapore: Sum of Fun

June 18, 2015

Media Invite

Last week, we took time off work, and the children out of the school, to visit Underwater World Singapore!

But before we went exploring, we filled our tummy with a delicious meal at Island Cuisine!

Island Cuisine is a buffet restaurant which offers a good variety of Singapore delights such as Mee Siam and Curry Chicken. There’s also a vegetarian section.


My personal favourites:
Hainanese Chicken Rice, Singapore Fried Rice, Sweet and Sour Chicken


The children love that there’s butter cake and ice cream!

After our lunch, our Underwater World exploration began!

It doesn’t seem like much has changed since our last visit before Nakayla was born, but it was still pretty entertaining watching the children get all excited over the different sea creatures they saw! It’s also good to know that I could remember some of the names without looking at the labels. Hehe πŸ˜›

The tunnel was probably one of the highlights for the children as they didn’t have to walk to explore the place. However, there is a particularly dark area which frightened Nakayla. She clung onto my legs tightly and refused to let go until we’re out of it. Thankfully, it was just that turn that was dark.

After one round in the tunnel, the children turned to the other exhibits happening in the hall.

And the next thing I knew, we were back on the tunnel’s conveyor belt once again. This time, Nakayla wasn’t as scared of the dark turn as before. She quickened her steps to walk out of it instead! Hehe.

After round two of the tunnel, we left to pay a visit to the pink dolphins and fur seals who were just next door! There was a show to catch!


“Hello!”

Honestly, I was a little disappointed when the show ended as most of the attention was on the fur seals instead of the pink dolphins; I had expected a full-on pink-dolphins-only performance. I guess when there’s a mismatch in expectations, disappointments run high. Sigh.

Later on, I found out that no two shows are the same and the animal highlights and interactions usually alternate between the different show timings they have throughout the day (i.e. dolphins at the 11am show, fur seals for the 2pm show), and even then, it’s all highly dependent on the animals’ mood and behavior prior to showtime. I guess I should’ve had a more reasonable expectation when it comes to animal performances. Oh, what a noob I am!

On hindsight though, the fur seals actually put up quite an impressive performance! I mean, to be able to catch hoops thrown by someone who couldn’t aim, going all out to get that hoop… That’s mighty impressive!

And on that note, we ended our day trip to Underwater World Singapore.


Thanks for having us! We had a filling good time πŸ˜€

  14. I will bring my 3 children to UWS because they like sea creatures and have not been there. They will surely enjoy the experience!

  15. I will like to bring my bestie Phylicia and my 2 god-daughters along!

    This time, I’m gonna bring my young boys on their virgin visit there. I wanna them to experience the same enthralling joy and enchantment I had had with the turtles, sharks, stingrays, fur seals, pink dolphins and more!
