When Stephanie was in Singapore, one of the places we visited was Universal Studios Singapore (USS) at Resorts World Sentosa. It's actually a funny story. At least my friends think it is. I have a phobia of roller coaster rides and I have never been on one in my 33 years of existence! No I am not exaggerating! I've been to Sunway Lagoon and Hong Kong Disneyland but not once did I get on a roller coaster. Heck, I gave away all the express passes in Hong Kong!
Before she got here, she made me promise I'll accompany her. to USS So I said "sure why not. what's the harm anyway right?". I'll just go there and hangout while she does her thing. Well when we got into the park, she kept bugging me to try at least one roller coaster ride. So after 15 minutes of "please baby? come on, just once! pleaseeeeee" I relented and got on the Revenge of the Mummy ride. I'll tell you this. I have never been more afraid for my life! The entire ride is in almost complete darkness and not being able to see what's coming up wasn't the best feeling in the world! I walked out of the ride with white palms because I was gripping the bar for dear life and I had cold sweat too! Guess what she asked me next? You guessed right. "Can we do the ride again baby?". I'm standing there wondering what the hell happened to JUST ONE RIDE!

I relented once again (don't ask me why) and took the Revenge of the Mummy ride for the second time. I took the Transformers ride too. I know this is the latest attraction at USS but I have to say that it wasn't all that it was made out to be. I didn't like it and I thought the storyline was flat. Moving on...
Some of you won't believe this but I took the Battlestar Galactica ride too! Heck I went on both the HUMAN and CYLON coasters. Not once but twice each! For someone that has a phobia of roller coasters and heights, I know I did pretty darn well. Just for kicks, we did the Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure (a cool river raft ride), the Canopy Flyer, the Madagascar: A Crate Adventure and we watched a screening of Shrek 4-D Adventure. I can now proclaim that I love roller coaster rides. You have no idea how good it felt to get rid of this phobia. Amen!
