Grasshopper Eyes, view of durian from Swissotel Stamfort

The other day a good friend from Penang came over. Booked him a hotel at the tallest hotel in town. So when I gave him the keycard to the room when they arrived, took the opportunity to take photos. (DP job hazard?)

Here's a view of the Bay Area from the room. Below is the Esplanade. Instead of looking like a durian from this angle, it looks like grasshoppers eyes right?

Singapore is one of the world's busiest port. So you can see lots of ships behind.



If you want to see more picture of the Esplanade that has been posted, click on the "label" thingy below this tag, blogspot will retrieve all posting here with the Esplanade tag.


p/s: Mr & Mrs BA, hope you all liked the room.

When we moved to Singapore my husband's company put us up there for a month when it was still the Westin Stamford. The views were fantastic and the staff was fabulous. My youngest daughter still remembers how kind the doormen were to her.
