TCU/YLL AMSEP 02/2016 Day 5

We had a fun-filled day at Sentosa today, starting off from a train ride from our hostel to Harbourfront station. It was the first time for most of them to Sentosa, and they enjoyed a nice long walk along the Sentosa Broadwalk to the Resorts World area.They experienced a variety of attractions themed from the Dreamworks movies across six different parts of the park: Madagascar, Jurassic Park, Hollywood Studios, Shrek, The Mummy and Transformers. Some enjoyed the rides so much that they purchased an express pass in order to take more rides and to re-ride the interesting attractions!  We tried a hands-on lunch with a do-it-yourself style popiah and kueh pie tie picnic style! We taught the Taiwanese how to prepare their own popiahs and kueh pie ties using radish, garlic, sweet sauce, sambal chili and the relevant wrapping skins and kueh pie tie cups! They had a lot of fun and a great load of delicious food preparing their own lunch! We ended the day with a spectacular fireworks display at the USS before heading off to see the Sentosa Merlion which was not far from USS. It was interesting to learn that the Merlion was an icon taught to them in the Taiwan students' Geography lessons, and being able to see it first hand really excited them! We had a scrumptious dinner at the Seah Im food centre just opposite VivoCity, where the Taiwanese students got a chance to enjoy roti prata, Singapore-style seafood fried rice, bandung and briyani for the first time! Looking forward to another great day ahead tomorrow!
