Thank You, Universal Studios Singapore

This post is very likely to be my last Universal Studios Singapore post in a long time. I am leaving Singapore soon and moving to a new country to continue my studies.

Universal Studios Singapore has been a great friend during my 5 years in Singapore. It's one of the most accessible, if not THE most accessible, theme parks in the world, and I found myself always craving for a visit whenever I am in that area.

It's not just a playground, either. I have made new friends, strengthened the bonds with my old pals, done self-reflection, and even studied for my exams, all in this special place.

Therefore, this post is a thank you letter to Universal Studios Singapore.
