SINGAPORE DIARY: SCREAM-FEST AT WILD WILD WET

A few months ago, my friend Chona invited me and Albert for a free bonding day at Wild Wild Wet in Pasir Ris. I have never been there, but some friends told me that it’s like Adventure Cove in Sentosa.

We arrived at around ten in the morning; just in time, as there were not much people and no queues for most of the slides.

The first slide that we rode was the Royal Flush. We figured that since we have already rode the Vuvuzela in Sunway Lagoon, this ride will be easy-peasy. Boy was I wrong! I got scared because my position in the raft was one that went to the highest point of the slide. Nevertheless, my friends still managed to trick me into riding it again.

After that, we tried another raft ride which is the Ular-lah. This one, we enjoyed very much, as it is a relaxing ride and we were able to ride it multiple times.

The rest of the day was spent lounging in the pool.

I would love to be back here with my husband so that he can try the scary slide too, haha!

TRAVEL DIARY: TOKYO EATS


Japanese cuisine is very famous all around the world, and a trip to Tokyo would not be complete without trying out some of their famous delicacies. Just reminiscing on all the food that we feasted on makes me salivate and makes me want to go back soon (even just for food).

CREPES

We tried Marion Crepes and Angels Heart in Takeshita Street. Both shops offer delicious crepes.





JAPANESE CURRY AT COCO ICHIBANYA

I have tried Coco Ichibanya in Singapore, but I don’t think there is much difference from the one being served in Tokyo. Both are delicious. 





KATSUDON AND TONKATSU AT KATSU-YA

We love fried food so we just had to try Tokyo's authentic Tontaksu.





OKONOMIYAKI

It was also my husband who first introduce me the okonomiyaki or the Japanese-style pancake during our early dates in Manila. So we wanted to try out the authentic okonomiyaki while we were in Japan. 

We ate at Tsuruhashi Fugetsu while we were in Odaiba and ordered Osaka-style konomiyaki, modanyaki (okonomiyaki but made with noodles), and some sausages.

The servings were huge, and we were able to take home some of the left overs.








OMURICE

We chanced upon Pomme’s Omurice (omelette and rice) while we were searching for a place to eat breakfast. JM and I shared an order of omurice and got some kara-age on the side.






PABLO CHEESE TARTS

We saw Pablo mini while walking around Akihabara so we decided to try it. I like the original flavor more than the matcha.





RAMEN

On our first night, we were too tired to go around. We found a small ramen place near our hotel in Kamata called Ramen Douraku, and had our first ramen bowls for this trip. It was a nice warm welcome on a very cold night in Tokyo.




We were also able to try one of Japan’s famous ramen chains, Ichiran. It was so nice, we had to have it twice. I wanted to eat there everyday but JM wanted to try other shops as well.



Our last bowl of Ramen was at Tsukemenya Busou in Yokohama.





SUSHI AND SASHIMI AT TSUKIJI FISH MARKET

Tsukiji’s Fish Market is famous for having the freshest sushi and sashimi in Japan. They even have an early morning auction for the freshest catch of the day. There is a famous sushi shop in Tsukiji which is famous for its long lines. 

However, JM and I didn’t want to wake up at four in the morning to queue for a few hours for sushi, so we settled for another place. We walked around Tsukiji market and picked one of the sushi stalls.





TAKOYAKI

We had Takoyaki for snacks while waiting for the rain to stop so that we can have our photos taken with Mr Gundam. 





YAKITORI AT NANBANTEI

I did not know that Nanbantei was really from Japan until we were walking along Shibuya and came across a signage of Nanbantei Japanese Restaurant. Of course, we had to go in and see the difference.





YOSHINOYA

We were able to eat twice in Yoshinoya while at Takeshita Street. The food was good and it was cheap too!
