During my summer vacation my family and I went to Singapore for a short holiday. We had a great time and saw many wonderful things but the highlight of our holiday was our trip to Sentosa Island.
Sentosa island is a small island resort, which we reached by cable car. The cable car ride runs over the ocean and we got a great view of numerous boats and ships.
At Sentosa we first had fun on a luge ride. A luge is a small car which has only a steering wheel and runs downhill by gravity. Our next stop was at the Tiger sky Tower which is a free standing observation tower 110 metres high. At the top, we were in a large disk shaped cabin which rotates slowly. We got a panoramic view of Sentosa and Singapore. At the Butterfly Park and Insect Kingdom we saw over 15000 live butterflies and over 3000 species of rare insects from all over the world. We saw the famous Merlion statue which stands 37 metres tall.
One of my most amazing experience was at the 4D movie theatre where we saw a movie called ‘Pirates’. Apart from the usual 3D visual effects, we found ourselves being shaken up in our chairs, water being splashed on our faces and felt the sensation of crabs crawling up our legs.
The under water world, our next stop, houses an amazing travellator on which we moved through a submerged glass window tunnel and viewed over 2000 varieties of marine and fresh water animals. At the dolphin lagoon pink dolphins performed superb tricks.
Our trip to Sentosa ended with the best show of all-A laser show called songs of the sea. It was a musical programme performed on the beach with amazing visual effects produced by laser beats.
Back at Singapore I slept that night dreaming of living on Sentosa Island for the rest of my life.
Dimdima is the Sanskrit word for â€˜drumbeatâ€™. In olden days, victory in battle was heralded by the beat of drums or any important news to be conveyed to the people used to be accompanied with drumbeats.
