Your team will have to work together to find clues, break puzzles and solve mysteries to escape from the rooms depicting out-of-this-world scenarios!

 14. Sentosa Spooktacular

Sentosa-Spooktacular-Key-Art-credit-Sentosa-Spooktacular-1-500x707

Welcome to Laddaland, the new Spooktacular haunted village where horror lurks at any corner. Gather your courage and explore the village, where every house is haunted. Cursed and haunted spirits are out to claim new souls to join their realm. Come on in and we wish you luck, for we do not know if we will see you again.

Based on GTH’s well-received movie Laddaland; story has it that a family of four abandoned their old lives and moved into Laddaland, ready to settle down in a beautiful home they could call their own and live their dreams. All is well until they found out about the ruthless murder of a Burmese maid in their neighbour’s house. Savagely beaten, her mangled body is found stuffed inside the refrigerator. A wrongful death always results in a vengeful soul. Even the innocent ones are not spared from strange sightings and mournful cries.

There will be no Fort Siloso. Instead, experience the transformation of what you once knew as Fort Siloso into the village of Laddaland. Walk down the rows of old houses until you reach the home of Thee , his wife Parn, his rebellious teenage daughter Nan and lively young son Nat. What seems to be a dream house in the day  will turn into your darkest nightmare when night falls. Watch as the dark village comes to life in the wake of the night and be prepared to play hide and seek with the poor haunted souls who only want to have some fun. You hide, they seek, and be assured they do not give up easily because they promise to haunt you long long time. You can never be sure what you will find in your path…or off the path; as ghosts and ghouls play hard and work hard in bringing to you Asia’s Scariest Fun. A word of caution from us: Guard your soul to the best you can. Rumours have it that no one comes out alive from Laddaland.

Going to Batam ? BEWARE !

The wait is over ! School holiday are finally here ! That means for the whole of next two months, there would be no assignments, no presentations and no test to prepare for !

I’m glad that I have no exam this semester. I will have more time to blog and spend more time with my non-poly friends !

Batam6

Since school holiday are here, some of you will spend your holiday overseas. Those who are going to BATAM, do take note that they have recently imposed a new rules.

ST_20140817_BATAM17_585308e

The new rules bans talking loudly or using mobile phones at their immigration checkpoint and the officers have recently started enforcing the rules strictly.

How strict ? Stricter than you and I would have imagined.

So what’s the punishment for talking loudly or using phone ? DEPORTATION !

Yes, I’m not kidding. They will send you back to Singapore. Try and beg them, they won’t listen to you. This is how strict they are. Imagine, just because you talk, you get deported. Hahaha I find it super funny. Nobody expected the penalty to be this harsh haha.

So mean right haha ? Imagine you paid like 50 bucks and took an hour ferry ride to Batam, and when you reached there, you talk and get deported.

The reason for imposing this rules is because the immigration officers needed the place to be quiet to maintain order so that the tourist can hear them when they called their names.

The rules are ridiculous but we as an outsider, we should respect their rules. We also want tourist to follow our country rules when they are in Singapore right ?

So yeah. You may find their rules ridiculous or weird but not as ridiculous/weird as our “chewing gums” rules.

Rules sucks, but what can we do ? Suck thumb lohhhh ..

Where is the best place in Singapore to study overnight ?

UPDATED POST !

Finally my year 2 sem 1 is finally over. It’s time for me to update my blog. It’s been a long time since I last post something here. So my first task is to update one of my blog post. This post is one of my top post therefore I think there is a need to update this post.

Well, the recent semester has been a really hectic one. Can you imagine, in less than 2 months, I had to complete 7 major projects and on top of that, I’ve other commitment such as presentation and class test too. I survived.

Been staying in school till late night every single day just to finish up my assignments. Sometimes, I didn’t go home because I know if I go home, I’ll sleep instead. I really cannot do homework at home. I will end up tonning outside to finish up my work.

I wish we could stay in school overnight to do our work. After 10pm, security guards will chase us out. So we have no choice but to find a 24 hours cafe to do our work. I used to do my work overnight in Starbucks or Coffee Bean but I get bored of studying there because there are no other shop which open except them. Sometimes, I need food to eat and the food sold in Starbucks or Coffee Bean is not my cup of tea.

After trying different kind of places to do my work overnight, I finally found the best place to do my assignment overnight or in other word, a place for me to ton to do my homework or to study.

And the place is none other than the best airport in the world, Changi Airport.

I lived in the North and Changi Airport is like the other end of Singapore but I don’t mind going there. One of the reason is because my school is only 15 minutes away from the Airport.

There are a lot of reason why Changi Airport is the best place to ton and study or do your assignment overnight.

1. Cafes with Power Socket + Coffee + Cakes + Wifi + 24hours

Power socket is a must thing to have when you study overnight. Even if your assignment does not require you to use laptop, we still need to charge our smartphone ! There are three cafes for you to choose :

coffeebean

– Coffee Bean ( terminal 2 ) :

Coffee Bean has only 2 power sockets if I’m not wrong but normally, there is only less than 5 customers on weekday’s midnight. Coffee Bean provides you with a free WiFi, you have to ask the barista for the username and password. I like Coffee Bean because it has lesser customer and the staff there are very friendly.

ritaza

– Caffe Ritazza ( terminal 1 ) :

Big cafe with a free WiFi, password can be found in the receipt. Price is slightly cheaper than other cafes. They have 2 power points, each has 4 power sockets. 10% off total bill and regular cappuccino at $3.90 per cup for NTUC plus! cardholder. Less crowded compared to Starbucks.

star

– Starbucks ( terminal 1 & 2 ) :

Slighly more crowded than the other two cafes mainly because more people prefers Starbucks drink. The one in Terminal 3 only open for 24hours on Friday & weekends. I only went to Terminal 3 Starbucks. They have quite a number of power points. I’m not too sure about the other Starbucks in Terminal 1 & 2 but normally Starbucks Cafe comes with a power sockets.

– Panapolis ( terminal 3 ) NEW!

Panopolis offers simply delicious and inspiring sandwiches and pastries from around the world. At Panopolis, all breads are freshly baked and filled throughout the day. They have a study table with few power sockets and a free wi-fi ! Panapolis is a halal certified cafe too.

– Krispy Kreme ( terminal 2 ) NEW!

The newly opened Krispy Kreme is a new spot to study in Changi Airport! A 24 hours Krispy Kreme ! They do have power sockets but you have to use your own hotspot for internet connection. Very comfortable and various type of doughnut to keep you awake throughout the night !

I’m not sure if they have power sockets or wifi but Paris Baguette in Changi Airport is 24 hours !

2. Atas Cafes

If you prefers to do your work in a more high-class cafe, you can head to :

– The Connoisseur Concerto ( Terminal 3 )

coffee club

– O’Coffee Club ( Terminal 3 )

I’m not sure if they have power socket. You can check first.

3. Clean toilets !

toi

Toilet is a must thing to have too when you ton. Changi Airport toilet is very clean and you can find toilet every 50 metres ! Made my life easier !

4. Convenience Store

For me, I can’t study without something to munch. Sometimes I’m stingy to spend more than 5 bucks on cakes so I’ll go to the nearest convenience store to buy chocolates or biscuit to make me awake.

– Cheers ( Terminal 2 & 3 )
– 7-11 ( Terminal 1 )

5. Light Supper ! 

It’s normal to feel hungry while tonning. Sometimes, you don’t want to eat alot. You just wanna grab a toast bread to fill up your empty stomach. Don’t worry, you can find it here easily :

wang

– Heavenly Wang ( Terminal 2 & 3 )
– Ya Kun Kaya Toast ( Terminal 3 )
– Toast Box ( Terminal 3 )
– Wang Cafe ( Terminal 1 )
– Coffee & Toast ( Terminal 1 )

6. Heavy & Affordable Supper

Sometimes, toast bread is not enough. No worries, you can have your meal at the nearest 24hrs fast food restaurants. It’s value for money !

When you are stress or tired of studying, you can just take a short walk around the airport. It’s so peaceful ! You can go to the viewing gallery and look at the planes. Oh yah, you can take your own sweet time choosing which terminal to study at but do it before the last tram. Last tram is at 2.30am.

Enjoy studying and I hope this post will help you decide where to ton to finish up your assignment or revise for your exam.
