My Experience at Sentosa Spooktacular 2012!!

Sponsored Event 

Hi guys! I got invited to attend the media preview of Sentosa's Spooktacular at Fort Siloso! I was able to bring a friend along to the event so I brought Tiffany along with me!! I was afraid to go alone! It's better to be in pairs than alone! In case if some of you guys don't know, I have a bit of phobia that I'm scared of blood! So when I look at it! I will just turn sick instantly, but it's great to have a company to come along with me!

Some here are some facts before you want to read the rest of this blogpost.

  1. It is the first time Fort Siloso is being used as a Sentosa Spooktacular venue.
  2. This is also the first time that Fort Siloso is open at night. It usually closes at 6pm.
  3. Sentosa also known as Pulau Blakang Mati *Malay means the "Island (pulau) of Death (mati) from Behind (belakang)
  4. The average age of our Asian ghosts range from 1 year old to 2,186 years old.
  5. This is NOT the USS Halloween Event, this is another Halloween Event located at Fort Siloso.
  6. More than 10,000 tickets were sold in Sentosa Spooktacular 2011.

There are many different types of stories about how Sentosa got this name!! If you would want to take your time to read! 

Story 1: 
Some said this island was once an island of the dead with graveyards and cemeteries. Sentosa was pirate-infested and bore stories of epic battles between local inhabitants and pirates. In the end, the pirates won the fight and dominated this island, making it their lair and stronghold. The past was filled with gruesome murder, thus attributing to the name Pulau Blakang Mati.

Story 2:
The island was the material paradise of warrior spirits buried at Pulau Brani, and hence the island got its name, Pulau Blakang Mati.

Story 3:
In the late 1840s there was an outbreak of disease (Blakang Mati Fever)on the island in the late 1840s almost wiped out the original Bugis settlers on the island.

Met up with Noelle and her friend, John! We decided to stick together during the whole event!! 

On the train on the way to Beach Station! 

Tiffany and Noelle looks excited too! Hehehe!
This is how the entrance looks like! Okay is it me or the image of the ghost at the side looks abit realistic? 

Before we really get into it, here are some history background about Fort Siloso if you are really clueless about it.

The word Siloso is derived from a Malayan word meaning rock ( Sanskrit root : Sila ). There was a huge rock at the mouth of Singapore's harbour which was very dangerous to shipping


The Fort Siloso was built in the early 1880s to aid in protecting the port. It was part of Singapore's coastal defence along with Fort Serapong and Fort Connaught in Blakang Mati, as Sentosa was then called.

World War II 

Fort Siloso was a coast artillery battery, one of twelve coast artillery batteries which made up ‘Fortress Singapore’ at the start of World War Two. The forts were built to defend the land against sea invasion from the south. During World War II, the Fort's guns were turned 180 degrees inland to defend against land invasion by the Japanese Army in the west. The Fort's guns were fired at Japanese positions and troops who were advancing toward the city from Tengah Airfield.

Killing Fields and Sentosa Prison Camp 

Fort Siloso continued to serve the Japanese as a Prisoners Of War Camp until the end of the war. British and Australian soldiers captured by the Japanese were thrown into the prison and tortured.

So for this year's Spooktacular event at Sentosa there are....

  1. About 300 staff in total are involved in the making of Sentosa Spooktacular, humans and non.
  2. There are 450 skeletons and skulls involved in Sentosa Spooktacular 2012.
  3. The number of ghosts residing at Fort Siloso this year totals to about 200.

My experience at Kim's Family Food (Korean Food)

I was recommended by my friend Qin Pin to try out this Korean Restaurant that she had been telling about for ages that I really must come and try! She told me that there are more than 10 side dishes they offer and guess what? They are all FREE and refillable. Well to me, I not into Korean cuisine, but I decided to give it a try and experience the authentic food and ambience over at Kim's Family Food! There are 3 outlets in Singapore and we visited the one at 17 Lorong Kilat (near to Nooks DIY Pancakes). Address: Kim's Family Food (Korean Restaurant) 17 Lorong Kilat #01-06 Kilat Court Singapore 598139 Telephone: 6465 0535 (advised to make a reservation before you come) Entrance of Kim's Family Food  Qin Pin and Qi Man's peace twist sign photobomed this pic!  Full house okay!

Top 10 Cheap and Affordable Places for Students to eat in Singapore

Most of the time during lecture, my friends and I would be in class whatsapping each other in our own personal group chat discussing about what should we eat after school. (Don't bluff, I bet you done it before too). Usually, we will not be able to think of a location to settle down hence we will end up searching online. Over the entire year, my clique and I have been hopping around places to find the best spot to eat and I have successfully list up some of my top places that we usually will hang out after school. Of course, being students (if you work or not work part-time), we will always be on budget constraint and do not want to spend a lot in a meal. After months of exploration, I would like to recommend some places (you might have been too or might not) that you will probably want to visit with your friends one day! What we usually look out for: 1. Places you can sit and chit-chat for more than 1 hour 2. Pocket-friendly prices (preferably below $25, ranging from $5.50 -
