It was Labor Day last Wednesday, and it was a holiday here (and no it’s not a holiday in Jakarta). We were so confused of where to go to spend the day. So after arguing for hours, we decided (at 11 am) to go to the newly opened SEA Aquarium in Sentosa. We though we could stroll around for 2 hours, had lunch, and went home just in time for lil boy to attend his Chinese course. So off we went from home at 11 am.
WRONG DECISION! WRONG….WRONG….WRONG……!!!
I’ve heard some stories before about the long and unreasonable queue at SEA Aquarium, but I never thought it would be that bad. There was super long queue at the ticketing counters and another super long queue that would take at least 1 hour to enter the building. I couldn’t imagine being in the building with so many people like that. What could we see? How could we take decent photos? Could we enjoy ourselves inside? With the “not so cheap” price ($29 for adults and $20 for kids), I wanted us to enjoy our visit to the maximum level.
So we decided to step out from the queue and try to find a place to cool ourselves and fill the hungry tummy. This time we chose Chili’s because I promise that lil boy could have fries if he agreed to visit SEA Aquarium some other days. I’ve heard many good reviews about this place, so let’s gave this place a try. Chili’s is located near the Universal Studios. It is always packed with people at lunch time, so we were lucky that we arrived just few minutes before lunch so we could choose the seat that we liked.
Upon arriving, the nice waitress showed us our seats and gave little boy his kids menu with two crayons inside. There were some kids activities behind the kids menu. We said the kids menu is a great deal for us. With only $13 my son got one entry, one side dish, one drink plus 1 (big) scoop of ice cream. They came in quite big portion too.
Overall, we like the ambiance and the food. The service was good too. Lil boy said he would like to come back to try other food from the kids menu. Ok, me too……
