The food was simply delicious – a great variety of Western and Asian cuisines and a good catch-up with the great chums that I got to know over the past 5 months or so. Everyone looked so relaxed and it was a great setting indeed.
I haven’t really spent a lot of time on Sentosa island, and it certainly feels different from the main part of Singapore. More importantly, it feels more different than when I last visited here in 2001/2002 – when it was still being developed. Universal Studio’s didn’t exist, the Casino didn’t exist, most of the resort was still being planned / designed – so it was a sparce island, but seeing what has been done really makes it feel surreal. Even the various transportation system didn’t exist at the time – you had to take the cable car across or bus (there was a Sentosa Monorail, which terminated in 2005 to make-way for the new Sentosa Express service). Now the Sentosa Express goes via Vivo City (next to HarbourFront MRT) to the Sensosa Island and to various parts of the Island for only S$3. The island seems to be split up into zones – which in reality splits up the ‘old’ part and the ‘newer’ part of the resorts on the island. The only thing to note is that the tolls for Taxi’s are quite expensive, so we decided to leave before the last Sentosa Express MRT to the mainland.
What a great evening, nice setting and very relaxing. Very honoured to have been part of this!
