The Goonfather took me to Resorts World Sentosa last night despite only like 5% of the place being open for business.
I wonder why they opened it when hardly anything was ready for visitors.
It was fun exploring, though. No crowd!
This is the carpark:
It’s really huge, too!
Well, okay, not the whole carpark is pretty like this, only the part near to the entrance. The rest of the carpark is plain, but that might be because construction is not complete. We saw many workers at different parts of the carpark drilling and hammering away at stuff, making a din.
I made the Goonfather take a photo of me in the carpark:
His photo not pretty lor! I think I need a real photographer to tag along with me wherever I go! It’s a bit hard to self-camwhore scenic shots.
Entrance into RWS from the carpark:
Looks like some deserted shopping mall.
But then you step in and, WOAH, grand city!!
And then you look to your right and it’s, like, LOL, still under construction!
The whole place is still under construction, basically.
The casino looks nice!
But it’s got a row of turnstiles looking almost like those in MRT stations, which makes it look like an MRT station.
Next to the casino is a tunnel leading to the hotels of RWS. The tunnel is the nicest part of the whole place!
As you walk through this tunnel towards a set of escalators, you can hear the soft strains of music.
The music gets louder as you enter the realm of escalators. It is majestic and inspiring and there are sound effects of fire and birds corresponding to the light displays above the escalators (the curved strip of light).
It’s a really magical feeling.
You go up this set of escalators and there’s another up there.
Quite quickly, though, it’s over, and you’re back to normalcy.
After the grandeur of the tunnel, this part looks positively blah.
But the Goonfather says Festive Hotel is supposed to be the “budget” hotel in RWS, like what First World Hotel is in Genting.
Outside the hotel, lol.
I like the flower signboards! They have pink ones, red ones, purple ones, yellow ones!
Hard Rock Hotel was a distance away. We walked through pretty garden paths to get there.
I totally forgot to take photos of the nice interiors!! I think I was too excited about visiting the Hard Rock Shop!
I only remembered to photograph the restaurant, which isn’t exciting at all.
Sometimes my brain short circuits for no reason!
In the end, I didn’t see anything I really liked at the shop. Maybe the cap. But then I didn’t feel like buying a cap.
As we walked through the unfinished gardens, I thought of Farm Country and Country Story (Facebook games), which I have quit! No more farming!!! (Well, except for Agricola.)
I love the flowers they planted all over the place. Very pretty colours and placements!
Connecting the hotels are rows and rows of boutiques. Very atas boutiques. All the big shots!
But most of them are still under renovation.
Back indoors, we came across this structure that reminds me of a furnace. Hahaha.
Surrounding the pillar inside is a round sofa, which I can’t show since all the people standing around there wouldn’t stop standing around there.
Random interior decor pic:
These grand steps (okay not so grand steps) lead up to a spa and a restaurant. It was at the restaurant that we ate.
I wouldn’t recommend it at all. Called Fiesta, it’s a Brazillian restaurant with a very limited menu. You can only order a set meal (at $39+++) which comes with choices of soups, appetisers, salads, main courses and dessert.
I didn’t like anything at all there.
This is everything on the menu! LOL.
Well, maybe there will be more stuff later on when the whole place finally opens. But then nothing tastes good now, so I don’t hope it will get better.
One thing I liked in RWS was that there’s staff all over the place. They’re dressed in a dorky cute uniforms and they make eye contact with everyone, smiling and greeting people as people walk pass.
How cool is that? I mean, that is such a rare sight in Singapore!
There were both male and female staff. It just so happened that when I thought to take some photos with them, I only saw females, lol.
Well, that’s all there is to see at RWS right now. I guess it’s gonna be a pretty cool place to hang out at when it’s all ready but, at the same time, I’m scared of crowds that will come later!
Still, I’m glad Singapore finally has a nice theme park! =)
