Ouch! It sure is spiky!

Last Saturday, I pretended to be a tourist. A friend who was from Sydney going back to UK was around, so sis and I was met her and we pretended to be tourist with her.

This is Esplanade, theatres on the bay. It is famous for its spiky durian like roof.

Sis later on went to attend the Singapore Symphony Orchestra's 28th Anniversary Concert. The ticket was courtesy of my colleague who was away in Denver.

You and Sis shared a wonderful day, I think. Thanks for showing the spiky theatre on the bay.

that roof is special..Russians prefer to have roofs for churches like onion and now I can see in Singapore they prefer durian:)

A quand une video ?
17$90 c'est pas cher pour un concert.

What a fun time. I love going to the symphony, though I don't do it often enough. What a great building!
