Singapore 2013: Iconic Attractions

So much for thinking about sticking to a blogging schedule in my last post, when that should’ve started consecutive entries on #IsparkleenSGMY2013.

For this entry, I’ll be sharing some of my “So close, yet so far” photos in Singapore. Case in point are two popular attractions: the Marina Bay Sands and the Singapore Flyer. We didn’t venture to explore MBS (after we have decided that paying for the MBS SkyPark entrance is a no-go; perhaps when I actually have the money to spend the night there). Riding the Singapore Flyer was not in our itinerary because there were other priorities. Two days is too short for Singapore (as with other lovely countries). Another major attraction that we didn’t have time for was Universal Studios Sentosa. Hi self, motivation. Haha.

Anyway, here are the photos.

I wonder how it’s like to swim at the rooftop

If there were a public place in Manila that is as serene and safe as these open spaces in Singapore, more people would be motivated to get moving in the mornings.

Spotted a lone jogger. Maybe there are more people during weekends

I also (surprisingly) had enough energy to set-up my equipment to take long exposure shots along the bay facing MBS. Plenty of hobbyists were also doing the same thing.

I love that both the MBS and Singapore Flyer are starting to become iconic images for Singapore, apart from the merlion. Maybe it’s not far off to expect them to construct a tower in the future.

Up next: BIG Hotel.
