Boycott Resort World Sentosa's Marine Life Park

Before you decide to visit RWS's Marine Life Park, please do yourself a favor and watch the documentary 'The Cove'. It'll show you how exactly wild dolphins are caught by hunters and show you why dolphins should not be kept in captivity. In fact, I think Channel 5 should probably show this documentary to educate people. But you know they would never.

If you have no time, at least watch a short clip from the film below:

When I was younger and didn't know any better, I visited the Dolphin Lagoon in Sentosa's Underwater World and got to pet a dolphin. Before we approached the dolphin, the trainer told us to approach carefully as the dolphin was 'shy'. Now when I think back about it, they were probably just sugar coating the truth. The dolphin wasn't exactly having the time of its life having a line of dumb kids coming over one by one to touch it, despite what it's smile would lead us to believe. Like Ric O'Barry says, a dolphin's smile is nature's greatest deception. The dolphin was probably stressed out, like animals in captivity tend to be.

We may not all have spare cash lying around to donate to a worthy cause but there's something very easy we can do to help the dolphins, and it won't cost you a cent - just choose not to visit the Marine Life Park.

Sudden craving for the thick toast and sweet potato latte that I had when I was in Korea so went down to the only Tom N Toms Coffee left in Singapore at Icon Village. Unforch, there was no sweet potato latte to be found. They should bring in the seasonal items if they want to up their sales tbh. Anyways, the chairs in the place also looked a little worse for wear. 

Choco Butter Thick Toast
Apple Cinnamon filled pretzel
Iced Americano

Loved the toast, but you can't really screw up a toast can you, not hard to make a good one.  The pretzel, which came in a set with the iced Americano, was kinda tasteless in comparison. Not much of a cinnamon flavor to be found. But it was filling, could make a satisfactory lunch.
