The teacher of the music lesson was very funny and lead us well using recorder.When we finished our music lesson, we went back to the school hall and got ready with our performance at the back stage. We were very nervous when we stood at the hall’s stage, but we did very well after all. Next we went to Sentosa Island by cable car and watched the first show called “Images of Singapore”.

We were surprised by giant waterfall in the Cloud Forest. It look like real waterfall, but actually it is just manmade waterfall. This place called cloud forest because there is a time where this place covered by fog that looks like cloud around the waterfall. We used the lift to level 6 and walk along the top of the waterfall. Some of us was scared but it was very interesting. At the end of the tour, we get to the gift shop and brought souvenirs to our family and friends.
