Singapore, May 2014

Singapore - 2014
  After our adventures in Malaysia we headed south over the bridge into Singapore.  We spent a day at Universal Studios and then some time just wandering around the town.  I'm not going to narrate to many of these photos since most of them speak for themselves.  I hope that you enjoy them, we had a great time in Singapore.  It was pretty and clean and way less chaotic then Bangkok is.  

Please notice the two children in the background. They are so fun sometimes.

The view outside of our hotel room.  These were giant artificial tree's that light up at night.

The structure in the back is our hotel.  Marina Bay Sands hotel.  On the top is an infinity pool that goes almost the whole length of the "boat" structure.  The hotel was pretty amazing.
The cute family in front of the Merlion.

The hotel again.

Justice was in Singapore for work.  The randoms in the photo are a few of the Marines that work at the Singapore Embassy.

This was on the top floor of the hotel, with the pool in the background.  

SO... that's Singapore.  We were only there for 2 days so didn't see much but at least I can say we've been there!

Coming up...
     Cambodia, Pattaya, Krabi, Hua Hin, Kanchanaburi, and a few randoms.


LEGOLAND MALAYSIA!!! May 9th & 10th, 2014

   So I am still a few trips behind on this whole blog thing.  I figured that now would be a good time for an update. In May we took a trip to Malaysia and Singapore.  The only thing we did in Malaysia was Legoland.  Legoland, according to my children is better than Disneyland.  We have visited the one in Carlsbad, California several times while we lived in Arizona and we always have a great time.
    The children had no idea we were going to Legoland.  They asked a few times and I told them no, we wouldn't have time, it was to expensive, etc. etc.  When we left our hotel room in the morning we drove towards Legoland.  The kids could see it off in a distance. They asked a few times if we were going, I told them no again.  They were not being friendly kids that morning.  They did not want to leave the hotel.  They were impressed with the waterslide and wanted to just stay and swim at the hotel and play video games.  So I tortured them a bit longer. We got out of the cab and was walking around right outside the entrance and told them we were just getting breakfast there and "touring" the area.  When we decided enough was enough I gave them the tickets and told them to read it.  I was not impressed by their reaction.  It was excitement and joy like I was hoping but it was more like, "why did you lie to us? that's not nice." Seriously....we just flew our kids to Legoland, Malaysia and surprised them with a trip to their happiest place on earth on they are upset. I was looking for more of a jumping up and down, "You're the best parents on earth!!" type of reaction.  Either way, we had a great time.  We spent one day in Legoland riding rides. The weather was cloudy and drizzly, just enough to keep us cool and keep the crowds away.  The second day we went to the waterpark and had even more fun.  I don't have any photos of the waterpark since we didn't bring the camera. Sorry...

Here are the three children outside their happiest place on earth.  The camera lens was a bit cloudy, it didn't really look like that outside.

Mini Land-  We all love to look at all the Lego structures.

One of the funnest rides.  Me, Brosnan, and Arcadian about to get splashed!!!

All smiles here even though we are now soaking wet.

Justice, Brosnan, and Justice

The kids' favorite ride.  Well, Justice and Brosnan loved it.  Arcadian hasn't been fond of roller coasters since we took him on Thunder Mountain at Disneyland in California a few years ago :-(

Next post will be of our time in Singapore!!
