In search of bikini babes: Fun at Siloso Beach (Part 2)

Sponsored

(Continued…)

After taking the sky ride up the hill, we went down it in style!

Like our new hats?

Haha.

The Sentosa LUGE RIDE!!

That was so fun!! The luge staff all wore t-shirts proclaiming that “Once is not enough” and they’re right! But I didn’t do it again cos I didn’t want to take the sky ride up again and I didn’t fancy ascending the hill by foot (although it’s possible if you enjoy walking).

Sunset was approaching and we needed to get back to the beach to find more bikini babes!

But, first, we took some photos at the popular Siloso Beach colourful icon.

There are a few trams that travel up and down Siloso Beach, so you can hop onto one of these (free-of-charge) if you’re lazy to walk.

We went back to Cafe del Mar. We decided that’s where all the babes would be because that’s where the party was!

Unfortunately, the outside seating was all filled so we had to sit indoors. It’s pretty cool indoors, though. I mean literally! The air-con was cold! Just nice after a hot day at the beach!

We had to enjoy the outdoors vicariously.

And then the party started and the dancing babes came out.

My stupid camera can capture juice dripping out a lemon but it can’t do dancing babes without blurring.

Well, that’s what videos are for. You’ve already seen the video, so… next!

Camwhore!

But I want to talk about dinner now.

Dinner at Ami’s Restaurant!

This is also on Siloso Beach, just beside the Beach Station, which you should stop at if you’re taking the Sentosa Express from VivoCity.

Soup of the day:

I can’t remember what soup it is already. Haha. But it’s good. Really.

Satay:

Is not as good because the meat is a bit tough.

Chilli soft shell crab:

Is good!!! The sauce tastes like a cross between chilli crab sauce and sweet and sour sauce. The crab is fried in batter and tastes just divine. But you have to eat it fast before the batter turns soggy.

Potato salad:

Give it a miss unless you like hard potato. The salad dressing is nice but I like my potato very mushy!

Spicy crab pasta:

It’s not spicy at all lah. But I like! The sauce is a bit like the chilli soft shell crab sauce. This was my main course and I really enjoyed it, although I wish they had heaped on more sauce. And more crab meat.

Pepper steak:

I wish I had ordered this! It’s really tender and juicy and just nicely done. Yum.

Dessert:

This is a sago with gula melaka and coconut milk dessert. It’s really divine. But I couldn’t finish it because the dinner had made me so full!

Geez, I need to go back to Ami’s again.

The Goonfather joined us later in the night because he had class till 6 pm and after that had to collect Makkuro from the hospital. (In case you haven’t been following my blog, Makkuro’s engine busted a few weeks before. Makkuro is the Goonfather’s car.)

We went to watch Song of the Sea, a musical extravaganza that incorporates live actors, fireworks, laser effects, musical fountain and fire!

It’s a night show and there are two shows daily. It’s really popular! The queue was amazing. A ticket costs only $8 (adults) and it’s free seating.

It was about 15 minutes before showtime. We were trying to find the end of the queue and I almost fainted when I saw this. (It snakes all the way to the extreme left of the photo.)

We thought that was the end but when we got there, there was ANOTHER QUEUE HIDDEN BEHIND THE FIRST QUEUE.

OMG.

But it didn’t take too long, fortunately.

This is the stage:

It’s the whole freaking beach!

Check out the crowd.

Attap houses in the sea form the backdrop for the stage.

The 20-minute show is about a young man trying to break an evil spell to wake a beautiful princess. Hmm, okay, I prefer the cool effects. I love the musical fountain and the fire show. If you sit near enough, you can actually feel the heat from the fire and a bit of the water spray.

Nothing like fireworks to end a spectacular day!

If I hadn’t been invited to hang out at Sentosa for a day, I wouldn’t have known that there are so many fun things to do there, especially on Siloso Beach, which is for the cool and the happening!

(Yah lah, I know I’m very sua ku and I know many people do hang out at Sentosa regularly lah.)

It’s also surprisingly easy to get there. You wouldn’t even think that you were travelling to an island because it’s so near the city. I took the Sentosa Express, which you can take from VivoCity (on level 3), and it’s like taking an MRT.

The Goonfather usually drives in. It takes a few minutes to drive across and there’s a huge underground carpark near the beach where you can always get a parking lot.

No wonder he likes going there so much. I’m sure it’s not entirely due to the bikini babes, either!

Oh, I almost forgot to mention this.

There will be a New Year countdown party at Siloso Beach this year, just like last year!

Called the Siloso Beach Party, it is Asia’s grooviest beach party, where you can expect the coolest DJs, music and performances!

On Dec 31, from 8 pm onwards, there will be nonstop music and partying. And the best part is that you don’t need to dress up because, duh, it’s at the beach! Just pop a bikini on! Hehe! Okay, for guys, just go topless with sexy trunks or surfer shorts!

Having a New Year Countdown party on the beach means that you will be able to witness the first dawn of 2009 right on the shores of Singapore’s hippest beach!

There will be pyrotechnics, too! OMG. Er, that means fireworks in case you don’t know. (Pyrotechnics is the term they use in the microsite.) I LOVE FIREWORKS, pyrotechnics, whatever. Can you imagine dancing beneath fireworks?

Throughout the night, there will be a Battle of the DJs, where duo DJs will be spinning at the same time at any given time. A total of eight DJs (including both International and local names) will entertain the crowd with their “mashed-up” music. That’s like mixing all kinds of music together. Haha! Sounds crazy! =)

Other fringe activities: Games (free to play), entertainment acts (like stilt-walking), snacks, booze, foam and plenty of bikini babes!!

The party is gonna be soooooooo coool.

Tickets are on sale at SISTIC. There’s an age limit of 18 years old.

So, who’s game to witness the first dawn of 2009?

In search of bikini babes: Fun at Siloso Beach (Part 1)

Sponsored

The Goonfather often goes to Siloso Beach in Sentosa to check out bikini chicks during weekends when I’m not free to accompany him.

Idiot.

So, when I had the opportunity to enjoy some of Sentosa’s adventures on the house, I picked a Saturday when he wasn’t free. Wahahahaha.

No lah, I’m not so mean.

The date was picked for me, actually. And I wish the Goonfather had gone because I could have used him to entertain the babes while I took photos of them.

But, anyway, he had class that day, so I took Morte and Wang Wang with me.

Bikini babes later. Lunch first!

We ate at COASTES, at Morte’s recommendation. (We had many beach bars and eateries to choose from, so it was good to have a guide, even if the guide was Morte.)

Morte is the Goonfather’s babe-watching companion and is quite a regular at Sentosa’s Siloso Beach.

COASTES is one of the alfresco beach pub-restaurants along Siloso Beach.

They have wireless Internet access, they say.

But I don’t need free wireless access in Singapore. My SingNet mobile broadband gives me 50GB bandwidth a month. I think I only use up 5% of that each month. What a waste.

In any case, I didn’t bring my laptop out that day.

I was sooooo hungry.

But I had time to camwhore!

One of the creeds they make you memorise in Camwhore School: “There is always time to camwhore.”

Well, we had to wait for the food to arrive wat!

Fooooooood!

Morte copied me and ordered the Nürnberger sausages. He claimed that I copied him, though. Some people can get so argumentative over trivials.

I LOVE NÜRNBERGER SAUSAGES!!! But I wish the Europeans would do away with funny symbols on their vowels. They make life so complicated!

The Nürnbergers at COASTES aren’t as good as they look in the photo. I think they should change brands! Not that they’re very bad lah. Morte liked them very much. I just have high standards. Haha.

Wang Wang had fish and chips. She’s very boring. She only eats fish and chicken.

She loved her fish and chips.

I can’t believe my cheap $290 camera managed to capture this juicy action! (And it wasn’t planned or rehearsed.)

Lunching by the beach is really awesome. Although it’s a little warm, which is why all girls should wear a bikini to the beach (except me because I don’t look good in one), it still feels great. It’s relaxing and serene and you have a great view of the sea and half naked men.

After lunch, we went babe hunting.

I’m not, like, a perv or gay or anything. It’s just human nature to enjoy looking at beautiful things and girls in bikinis are beautiful (mostly).

We dropped in at the Bikini Bar, beside COASTES, where the waitresses are dressed in bikini tops.

This waitress turned her back on me when she noticed my camera. Haha.

We decided to walk further down the beach. Along the way, we came across two little girls playing at one of those ground fountains that would periodically shoot water at them, to their delight.

Adults can apparently have fun with the fountain, too.

There are two giant pavilions along Siloso Beach, which is great for events, or just hanging out under shelter.

Some time ago, my friends and I planned a beach picnic outing at Sentosa. We assigned everyone to prepare a specific food item but we all forgot to assign someone to bring picnic mats!

Lucky we had the pavilions, so we had a pavilion picnic instead of a beach picnic. It was cool and shady and we still had a nice view of the beach.

Siloso Beach is like almost synonymous with beach volleyball. There are four official volleyball courts which are free-to-use on a first-come first-served basis but you can see volleyball enthusiasts just playing anywhere and everywhere along the beach.

I can’t play beach volleyball for nuts. I don’t know how to bounce the ball off my wrists properly and always end up bruising myself.

I guess the only thing I’m good at is camwhoring.

Sigh.

Behind me. They even play volleyball in the pavilion, under shelter!

Moving along. I’ve been hearing good things about Cafe del Mar a lot, so I was quite excited to check it out.

And, what do you know, on the very day I was there, the happening beach pub was hosting its first massive beach party called The Water Parade! How lucky!

I showed you a video of that party the last time. Here it is again if you missed it.

This time, I will show you peektures!

I love this. It makes the place look like a resort.

Some of the guys behind the party:

Early birds:

Well, it was really early and the party hadn’t actually started (they were just getting ready), so we went in search of other adventures, planning to come back later.

We saw this dog having fun with its owner. So cute! It’s a really good swimmer.

The weather was quite nice and windy. I had a lot of trouble keeping my hair off my face. Feel like chopping off my hair again.

We found the official volleyball courts after strolling further down the beach.

There was a tournament (the Sentosa-MOE Beach Volleyball Challenge 2008) going on that day.

We didn’t hang around too long, though. We had tons of things to do!

I was really tempted to try out the swinging trapeze, which is just beside the beach volleyball courts. But it looks damn scary!!!

OMGGGGGGG!

Kids can be so brave!

This is how tall it is.

Okay, it’s not crazily high up like in the circus, but it still looks scary!

Being the scaredy cats that we are, the three of us wimped out and went for a milder alternative.

The sky ride!

This is childsplay compared to the swinging trapeze but, still, I hate heights. :(

Of course, I pretended to enjoy myself because that’s the only way to manage paranoia. The ride was only a few minutes but it felt like an eternity.

To distract myself from fear, I snapped photos nonstop. Haha. I took about 50 photos while on the ride.

I didn’t dare move my feet at all cos I was afraid my slippers would fall off!!

Some photos I took while up in the air:

Reaching a scary height:

Top down view:

Morte was the one who alerted me to the nice sea view. I wouldn’t have noticed if he hadn’t told me because I was totally focused on not freaking out:

Being neighbours with treetrops isn’t something I quite fancy:

Let’s camwhore and not look at treetrops:

What goes up must come down, right?

Come back tomorrow to find out how we descended in style!

Bikini babes dancing at the beach

I was at Sentosa last Saturday and chanced upon a beach party at Cafe del Mar. I never knew Sentosa was so happening!

Took some videos. Enjoy!

I will be talking more about my adventure in Sentosa soon. This is just a teaser! ;)

It took me about eight hours to make this stupid video because splicing all the separate audio tracks into a coherent whole was a bitch. You will never know my pain unless you’ve done it before!

After I finished editing the whole thing the first time, the file got corrupted before I could render the video, so I had to DO IT FROM SCRATCH AGAIN.

OMG.

I swear I hate editing videos.

But completing a video feels good.

So.

Remember to scrub your face at least twice a week to get baby smooth skin!

===================================================

Gamer Girl Friday will be delayed this week because I am terribly terribly behind in all my paying deadlines. Thank you for your patience!
