Singapore Trip: Clarke Quay and Ion Orchard


Back to my Singapore trip. I finally squeezed out some time to filter those photos which have been abandoned on my hard drive for quite a while. And I noticed there isn't many or totally no "me" in the photos. What to do, my handy cameraman was not beside me...

Clarke Quay Singapore: Night View
The spectacular panoramic night view of Singapore River.

And Riverside Point on the left (southern) bank.

Across the river, we saw the most heart-pumping, pulse-racing, adrenaline-rushing G-MAX Reverse Bungee and GX-5 Xtreme Swing. $45 per person or ride both for $60. I know you would ask something like, "Did you ride it? Was is fun?" No, absolutely not!!! My heart felt weak even just listening to them people screaming ύ.ὺ

From far, we could see a giant flying ship as if it was landed on the three tall towers - the iconic Marina Bay Sands (a world-class luxury casino and hotel) capped by 340 metre-long Skypark. I was truly amazed looking at those photos that came up in the search results. Decision made! "Sands Skypark" shall be listed on our travel schedule next time, when we visit Singapore again.

Ion Orchard Singapore
Ion Orchard (乌节弯) located along the prime shopping district of Singapore, Orchard Road. There was this very interesting ceiling somewhere that gives you an underwater-world-like feeling with sharks and other marine lives swimming here and there. Of course, they were unreal ;p

Ion Orchard Singapore
We stumbled upon a cakery / bakery that serves a variety of colorful and appealing fruit tarts.

And puff pastry pizza with mixed berries? Yum~ They were delicious, but not incredibly delicious.

A shot I took on the escalator. Its see-through roof top.

We came out for a peek then went straight back into the mall, before the hot sun melts us.

    I wish we could too, but time was just not enough. We had really tight schedule with parents and all... Let's just make it next time, when I go to JB (never been there before) or Singapore again =)
