Universal Studios Singapore Feb Updates!

Planning to head to the Universal Studios Singapore this February? Here's some updates to note:

Park Hours During Chinese New Year
What gets you all hyped up for Chinese New Year? Alright, we know the red packets are a definite (for the receiver at least), the license to pig out, the reunion with loved ones, the LONG break...

Well, here's another thing to look forward to this festive new year - Universal Studios Singapore hours will be extended , closing at 9pm from 3-13 February!

A stroll in(to) the park

Ok, so you've taken RWS-8 or the Sentosa Express till you can literally memorize the timings and routes. Well, here's another option: Walk in!

Alright, before you frown at this suggestion, let us qualify that this is no ordinary sheltered walkway...

Sentosa Boardwalk opens this 29 Jan!

620-metre long, the Sentosa Boardwalk offers pedestrians a canopy-covered route into the island. And that's not all, it comes equipped with a network of travellators too, so you get a good mix of strolling and 'gliding' by the waterway with the various F&B/ retail outlets along the way.

Be sure to catch its opening celebration this Saturday, 29 Jan, where there's gonna be a special event, pyrotechnics and lots of  activities and giveaways. There will also be an attempt to set a really interesting Singapore Book of Records:) No charges for 29 and 30 Jan, so come on down and experience the walk for yourself!

For more on the opening celebrations, do check out Sentosa's website.

For info on the different ways you can get to the resort, check out our website.

P.S. In other news - With effect from 2 Feb 2011 (Chinese New Year Eve, Wednesday), NightRider (NR) Services will increase the fare from $3.50 to $4.00 for both cash and ez-link trips.

Happy travelling!

OSIA Wins Best New Restaurant!

Webster and Chef de Cuisine Douglas Tay

Leaping across the baptismal fire, 2010 went out with a bang with Osia being awarded the title of Best New Restaurant by CNNGo’s Best Eats 2010! Barely a year into its opening, chef Webster together with local chef de cuisine Douglas Tay have won the hearts of many who would attest to Osia’s unique fare (showcasing fresh Australian ingredients like barramundi and lemon myrtle) and service with a smile. Instead of blowing our own trumpet, I got Mr. Eric Teo, President of Singapore Chefs Association and Panel Judge for CNNGo's Best Eats 2010 to share why he feels Osia deserves the award.

“OSIA is my choice as Best New Restaurant because the quality of food is excellent and has been extremely consistent since its opening. Australian celebrity chef Scott Webster runs a tight ship and together with Chef de Cuisine Douglas Tay’s impressive culinary creativity, OSIA’s menu is truly value for money. Congratulations to the OSIA team for winning this award!”
