I have heard so many times in movies, TV-shows, plays etc. that never ever let the child inside of you die. That innocence gets lost somewhere, why does it go from ourselves? Why do we become so arrogant, egoistic and so paranoid that we can't laugh at other people's happiness. You could share that happiness right, you are just a smile away from them. Do you need a reason to be happy in your so called adulthood? I don't think so, all you need is a proper dose of laughter which can come to you in any form. Smile guys, please do that! No one is without worry or tension, each and every one has fair share of them in their life but what keeps one person low on sanity is happiness and crazy childhood memories. Yup, Insanity is my strong suit!

Singapore, my first international solo trip. Reason for me being in singapore was to deliver a speech on IoT (Internet of Things) to some highly functioning brains. I did that successfully, only I know how I answered those questions those people asked. But as soon as I got my talk done, I was ready to visit the dreamland of mine, Universal Studio.

"Dream Come True" moment, Right? I didn't have all those cartoons and fancy stuff growing up in a small town, but I caught up quite good during my computer engineering in college with starwars to startrek to transformers to animated movies to jurassic park. List never ends. So let's take a deep dive to the beautiful dreamland of Universal studio with me.

Easiest and cheapest way to get to Sentosa island is by Metro. Please take North-East line or Circle line to Harbour front Station. From the station, you could walk using sentosa broadwalk or take the Mono Rail which goes to Sentosa. I would suggest you guys to take the monorail as you want to save all energy for all the rides.

As this is the nearest ride on your right when you enter and it was rainy when I visited. Transformers ride is hell of a 3D ride, They take you through each and every autobots and decepticons battle like you are riding in that bumblebee. Don't forget to say hi and take selfie with the one and only Optimus Prime.

Shrek's World

We have always played treasure hunt sometime in college or school during those festivals, right? Although, I had to wait for an hour to get on this ride but it was worth it. I got to ride this cute ride on driver spot.

Jurrasic Park : Rapid Adventure

This is the second most scary ride in Universal Studio, The dinosaurs, raptiles and t-rex coming out and screaming at you through some bushes and rivers and waterfalls just scares the hell out of you. An advice - don't keep your cellphones without water protections in your pockets. You may get wet.
