Accidental Tourist - Sentosa-Old and New experiences at iFly Singapore & Underwater World

Kiddos had a treat last year when they were treated to old and new experiences. 

New experience is their skydives at the iFly @ Sentosa, one of Sentosa's newest attraction which is also the largest wind tunnel. Kids got their 2 skydives worth and a DVD to take home plus loads of lovely memories of floating in the air (aka weightlessness). 

How big? website info: spans 16.5 feet wide and 56.5 feet tall, it is the only wind tunnel with an 18 feet tall acrylic glass wall that lets you enjoy an unparalleled view of South China Sea and Siloso Beach. (

Slightly jaded but still great experience is the Underwater World where you get on a travelevator to be transported to a world where you are one with the ocean (albeit a few seconds). Photography is challenging in such an environment where everything comes out blue & people are plenty & to add to all that, the darn fish keep swimming! ;) but I decided to give it a shot anyway with my Nikon P7000 at hand & found it quite pleasing. Next time, will bring a proper tripod with my DSLR and find a weekday (hopefully with fewer people)  to take some decent shots. 

Till the next time, onto the world & beyond!
