Happy Easter!
Happy Easter!

Easter came early for 70 beneficiaries from the Metta School as they hunted down more than 2,000 eggs with candy treats hidden across Universal Studios Singapore last weekend.

I was invited to the event too with my family, together with a group of parent bloggers:

The children and youths from the Metta School, aged 7 to 18, started the day with a hearty breakfast before embarking on the first-ever egg hunt activity at the theme park.

Breakfast was served at Monty’s Casa del Wild Food Court:

This was followed by the egg hunt in an exclusive and empty Universal Studios Singapore, before the official opening hours when regular guests can enter:

The children, including my son Asher, also get to exercise their creativity by painting their own eggs:

Adding joy to the fun-filled morning was a special appearance by the Easter Bunny (from the movie, Hop) at Universal Studios Singapore. The bunny, which will be making special appearance at the park just for the Easter period, delighted the children with a special meet-and-greet performance and photo opportunities:

“The Easter Bunny is so cute! It’s really fun to come into Universal Studios Singapore early and it feels like we have the whole park to ourselves. I enjoyed going around hunting down the Easter eggs with my friends,” said Vivian Lim Yi, 11.

Mr Goh Chye Boon, Executive Vice President of Resort Operations at Resorts World Sentosa said, “Children has always been the focus of our numerous outreach initiatives, and we are honoured to continuously bring smiles to their faces. This is the first ever Easter Festival and egg hunt at Universal Studios Singapore and we felt it was only fitting to invite children to be our first guests.”

“We are grateful that RWS invited us to come along this morning. For many of the children, an egg hunt in the theme park is a first! The children really enjoyed themselves and I’m sure they will bring back with them wonderful memories of their moments here”, said Ms Humaira Bte Sulaiman, a teacher at the Metta School.

If you are looking for something to do this weekend for the family, the egg hunt and breakfast experience at Universal Studios Singapore will be available for guests over the Easter weekend of 18-20 April 2014. For more information, visit the official website.
