♫ Lady Antebellum - Dancin' Away With My Heart
I've finally reached the end of my communication studies degree in university! :) It's nearing the end of my one-week break before starting internship next week, so I've been using the time to go for a short trip and hang out with my friends.
What can I say? Endings and new beginnings are always bittersweet.
My friend and I had heard about the Harry Potter exhibition being held in Singapore, and so, as true Harry Potter fans, we made plans to go and take a look right after all our assignments were done. And go we did. :D

After having breakfast in McD, we headed to our hostel in Boat Quay to check in our bags and refresh ourselves before heading to the Art Science Museum at Marina Bay Sands. We stayed at the same place last year for AFA so the route was pretty much familiar to us by now.
|Boat Quay in the morning.|
|You can see the reflection of the Marina Bay Sands on the glass of the Art Science Museum. :)|
|We are finally here!|
|Couldn't resist the photo op here, haha!|
|These were pasted on the floor in the area before the exhibition.|
|The infamous Flying Ford Anglia from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.|

Unfortunately, photographs inside the exhibition itself was strictly forbidden, so these are the only pics I can show you. :( If you're curious as to what's inside, check out the extensive coverage - with photos! - of the Harry Potter exhibition here. It was a really great experience to see the props, costumes and miscellaneous stuff that were used in the movie. The attention to detail and the size and scope of the entire series is unbelievable. (I felt pretty much the same when I visited the LOTR exhibition back in 2004, perhaps even more because of all the real weapons and armour.)
We had plenty of time to kill after that, so we walked around, had lunch, and went shopping in Orchard until late.

|It was really windy outside the Art Science Museum. My Harry Potter paper bag almost flew away! >_<|
|The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands. Swanky place indeed. Even the whole mall smells expensive LOL|
|My favourite takoyaki at Ion. ♥|
|Crisp on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside. Ahhh~|

|Tested some Peripera lipsticks in Watsons. :D|
Next morning, we had Mos Burger for brunch. I decided to try the Premium Wagyu Beef Burger, with extra cheese. :D
|Patty > burger bun. #WIN|
After that, we had to catch the train at 1.45 p.m. at Woodlands. We managed to get sleeping berths for the journey back to KL, so it wasn't as bad since we could sleep and stretch our legs.
It was a short but nice trip. :) Hopefully we'll be back again soon for AFA 2012!
