Marina Bay, Singapore

I was standing on the most upper floor of One Marina Boulevard Building before the meeting commenced when I snapped below panorama photo using my IPhone 5. It's beautiful to me and with the IPhone, it makes my blogging life became easier. It was very convenience and handy just to bring IPhone to snap photos and upload the record of my travelling and/or daily life journal. All photos in this entry was taken on 1st April 2013 to record my day trip event to Singapore, on official visit.

When I entered the meeting room, I was taken away with the gorgeous view of Marina Bay. It was slightly after 9.30 in the morning and with a fresh coffee aroma, I was definitely in a mood of capturing the moment. The marina bay was not fully completed during my family trip in June 2010, thus, I was admiring the astonishing building, Marina Bay Sands, officially opened on 15th February 2011 from a distance. The main contractor of the building far right of the photo was Ssangyong Engineering and Construction, a Korean international contractor.

Marina Bay Sands is an integrated resort fronting Marina Bay, developed by Las Vegas Sands as the world's most expensive stand alone casino property at SGD8 billion (about MYR20 billion), including cost of it's prime reclaimed land. It has the casino, hotel rooms, a convention-exhibition centre, the shopping mall, a museum, 2 large theatres, 7 "celebrity chef" restaurants, 2 floating Crystal Pavilions, an ice skating rink, and the world's largest atrium casino. The exclusive attraction of the complex are a 340m long SkyPark and a 150m infinity swimming pool, set on top of the world's largest public cantilevered platform, which overhangs the north tower by 67m.

On the other hand, I was enjoying my guest simple and cosy office decoration. The flower pots stay healthy under loving cares of the caretaker. 

We had an Indonesian food inside 1 of the restaurant inside "The Shoppes At Marina Bay Sands" after walking in a near distance. Everything was within the Marina Bay vicinity, very convenience development indeed. Many joggers were doing their routine though it was a hot sunny day.

The view of the floating boats are nice to see. It is available for ride at a certain rates. However, I dont have much time left for the rides.

This is another interesting object that I found and could not resisted taking it's picture that I found within the Olympic Walk as it was an art of peacocks feather.

After the official duty ended at 3pm, I headed to see a family friend in Aloha Beach. They have gathered there for 3 days celebrating their family members birthdays, born in March and April. I was lucky to join their leftover BBQ sea foods and enjoyed the Singapore hawkers food. They are so kind to ordered my family's favorite lamb soup for take away. Lucky that it went through the immigration checks.

Below is the last photo that I took from the plane. The plane take-off at 1915 and I safely reached home after 2200 hours. It was a hectic journey but a reunion with Kak Nonie and Abang Amin was worth all my effort to get there. Hope to visit again soon.
