It always feels like stepping into a whole new different world whenever I visit Universal Studios Singapore (USS). My first time in this wonderland was so memorable and fun that I couldn't stop thinking of going back there again to spend one full day with all the cartoon characters that I used to adore when I was a kid but hardly had chance to watch them on TV.
When my mom was in town 2 weeks ago, I decided to bring her to visit USS. She was my perfect "partner- in- crime". She was so brave that she joined me in most of the rides including the scariest one. How often can you spend one whole day with your mom having so much fun, laughing out loud together and not worrying about anything in life? It was my first time in 20 years and I felt so guilty for not doing this much earlier.
Talking so much about my mom in the recent blog entries makes me feel like I should, at least show you guys one photo of her.
Here she is- the love of my life who was also "forced" to be my photographer of the day.
Mom always complains about my travel addiction but she has never stopped me from traveling. When I was 15 years old, my family was so poor that we could never afford an air ticket to travel anywhere. Living nearby the airport, I saw many aircraft landing and taking off everyday. It drove my teenage mind crazy and I couldn't help but wonder: "How did it feel like to sit in an airplane at thousands feet up in the air?", "How did the clouds look from that tiny window?", "Would there be any bird flying outside?". None of my questions were answered. I told myself that when I'm successful and have the opportunity in future, I'll try to travel to many different places as much as I can.
10 years later, I traveled like a bird, flew back and forth from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) once every month for more than a year until I was so tired of traveling. That was 5 years ago. Right now, I travel 3, 4 times a year and can happily call myself as a dream-achiever. I have visited US, Hongkong, Taiwan, Indonesia, Dubai, Thailand so far. I'm like a glass half full. The more I go, the less things I think I know. The thought of visiting new places, seeing new things is exciting me every day. Whether I'm at Far Far Away castle or the Hollywood Boulevard, the Sci-Fi city or the Ancient Egypt, I always find myself entertained, inspired wherever I go. There are many beautiful places I've been that left me speechless and turned me into a storyteller. After every single trip, there will always be one question: Where will I be next?
