Henderson Waves

Another connector which we walked passed, as part of the 9km chain was the Henderson Waves. This is the tallest pedestrian bridge in Singapore. It seems that it is +65.59m above sea level. This bridge is just above Henderson Road and it connects Mount Faber Park to Telok Blangah Park.

"Scarecrow Garden" @ Hort Park - Who is this?

"Scarecrow Garden" @ Hort Park - Tin Man

Decided to explore the Southern Ridges this morning with Panda Gal, AS and AW. This is a 9km chain crossing over several parks and each park is connected by foot paths or bridges. One of the parks we passed was the Hort Park. And the "Scarecrow Garden" here caught my eye!

Here's 1 of the scarecrow that i thought was cute and it resembles the Tin Man in Wizard of Oz :) Certainly brings back memories.

Looking forward to another character tomorrow.

Shell V-Power for the price of Shell Formula 98 this weekend.

Last Friday, I posted a price of petrol prices in Singapore. This week, the price seems to have gone up again!

A friend was telling Momo and myself that some people have observed that whenever Ferrari wins a major race, the next weekend, Shell Singapore will have a promotion where their V-Power that powers Ferrari will be sold at the cheaper Formula 98 price.
(We googled around and found that to be true)

Few days ago, Momo checked that Ferrari won last weekend's France Grand Prix. So today (Friday), tomorrow (Saturday) and day after (Sunday) from 19:00 and 23:00pm, Shell should have the special, if they are still continuing the habit ;-)

Anyone can confirm this? (I don't own a car in Singapore, so I don't drive to the Petrol kiosk. I took this picture today, but it was earlier in the day and did not ask the petrol kiosk person as I was rushing somewhere.)

Lidi Brooms - The wonder broom.

Lidi Brooms (brooms made from the ribs of coconut palms), is one of the best brooms to sweep leaves, and is commonly used in Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia.

It sometimes called the wonder broom. It really sweeps well! It is environmentally friendly, as it is made from a ribs of coconut palms and contain no plastics.

In the Malaysian or Indonesian language, its called the Penyapu Lidi / Sapu Lidi.

The way it's arranged on this little truck, just breaks a smile to our faces.

Reinventing the Mobile Internet

Taken a few days ago at CommunicAsia. The event's way over, but here's a photo of it anyway.

One of the more popular booth, because Yahoo! was giving out ice cream with distinctly local flavours. You can view this Singapore website, IZ Reloaded for photos of it.

Did not take any photo of it, because I was asking the Yahoo people about Yahoo Go! 3.0. If own a LG KS20, it's confirmed it does not work with Yahoo Go! 3.0 I got the answer straight from them.

The other attraction was the demo by Japan's NHK about its Ultra High Definition TV. The demo was a big WOW!

The MRT Station designed by Sir Norman Foster

I only found out recently that this train station is designed by a world renowned British architect. Of all places, I found out when I was in a bookshop overseas!

I took this a few days ago. From the outside, it looks like a spaceship!

You can read more about this station in wikipedia.

Fighter jets nearly coliding....

Last Saturday evening, everyone in the streets were looking up. The thundering loud sounds of fighter jets were doing a demo for Singapore's National Day rehearsal.

At certain angles, it was as if the fighter jets are going to collide. Did not manage to capture it as we were all so fascinated and all necks were looking up!

This is the only shot I took. This shot at a different part of the sky. From this angle, it does not look that dangerous. :-)

The Singapore Flyer - In Blue....

I flew back to Singapore a moment ago on a Jetstar Flight. It was tiring.

As I was not around in Singapore for more than a week, these are some photos taken few weeks ago. Using it as filler before I go out and take photos again.

The Singapore Flyer glowing in blue hues.

Checking in TV for their flights...

This is what I saw at the airport. Loads of flat screen TVs. What are they doing here at the check in counter?

We heard that these are all bound for India. Indian tourists cart loads of flat screen TVs from Singapore back to India. They are considered very very cheap in Singapore compared to India.

Did you guess that I was on this flight? ;-)

‘High School Musical: The Ice Tour - SHOOTOUT!’

I happen to be at United Square yesterday and everyone in the mall had their eyes glued at the centre open space as primary and secondary school children was having fun in this competition.

It's the High School Musical: The Ice Tour Shootout. It is a basketball shooting competition that involves 5 school mates in a team, each taking turns to shoot the ball and scoring as many points as possible in 2 minutes.

High School Musical is a hit amongst children. Have you watched the show on TV before? I enjoyed watching it!
