Gleaming Tree of Joy

The trees gets more interesting every year. You heard of musical fountains that have lights and water displays that it in synch with the music.

This tree at Raffles City shopping centre changes lights in synch with the Christmas carols too.

I was standing there just looking at the lights change. :-)

Bukit Timah Saddle Club

Someone brought me to lunch at the Bukit Timah Saddle Club. The moment you drive into this area, you might suddenly think you are in some country side where you see horses and lots of grass areas.

Very peaceful place inside. Oh ya, there's a restaurant there called Riders Cafe that is quite unique.

Bukit Timah Canal

Bukit Timah Canal, near the Bukit Timah Campus of NUS.

The Downtown Line of the MRT was rumoured to be build over the canal using an inverted U to hold the train tracks. However news announced a few months ago confirmed that the new Downtown line will be totally underground.

Hmmm. Maybe the new line will be below the canal?

Can't wait for the new Downtown line to be ready. I hope it wont be delayed with the current financial situation.

Well, walking home few days ago, I passed by an advert at the bus stop. I thought I would post it up, so here it is.

I am curious to find out, what's this advert about?? LOL...

Flooding on the roof top

Flooding on the roof top? No, it's just a giant wadding pool on top of a shopping mall.

On the background, the national birds of Singapore - the Cranes. ;-p

Cable Car

It was raining quite heavily. The skies are dark.

But the show must still go on... For those already in the cable car.

Vivo City Rooftop

There are many kids (and adults too) enjoying themselves at the (quite huge) wadding pool at the roof top of Vivo City.

The kid seems to be enjoying himself!

The Vivo Tree in the day time...

The Vivo City Christmas tree in the daytime.

I seem to come here only in the evenings. I had a rare opportunity to visit it in the day this time.

The IKEA at Alexandra has got its new look. Have not been to this area for some time and the new look outside looks good.

The interior's renovation has almost finished too. Was here to look for new furniture.

Alkaff Again...

Alkaff Bridge, the full bridge view.

It's interesting that from yesterday's post, many people do not like it and find it ugly. :-)

Alkaff Bridge

One of the most artsy bridge in Singapore - the Alkaff Bridge for more info about this bridge.

Reed Sculpture

I was around Robertson Quay today and saw this.

When I got home and read the newspaper, there was an article of Art installations! What a coincidence.

Candies in the sky...

These are the candies hanging in the sky along Orchard Road for the Christmas light-up.

It really looks very different during the night with the lights. ;-)

Tallest Hill in Singapore

It has been wet and cold day in Singapore. It is as if 'Someone' up there has turned the tap on and wants to water the earth.

The tallest hill in Singapore - Bukit Timah seems to have grown taller. It has reached the clouds level from this photo taken this morning.

The usual telecommunications tower is now hidden behind the clouds/mist/water vapor/whatever you call it.

By the way, there are more buildings in Singapore that's taller than Singapore's tallest hill. :-)

People just love to pose with Christmas trees.

Wondering how big the tree I posted was yesterday?
This photo will let your compare...

People just love to pose with beautiful trees ya?
We are attracted to the lights I think.

Big Tree, but oops...

Was having dinner at Vivo City and saw this big tree. Everyone's posing with it.
The tree must be feeling proud.

Maybe except that it has a 'bald spot'. Hmm one part of the lights have already burnt off?

Another view of the NUS Alumni House

Thought the circular structure in the foreground looks rather contrasting with the odd shaped design of the building.

I should walk in the building to see more.
I was just passing by this area.

Shaw Foundation Alumni House

The new Alumni House for the National University of Singapore graduates.

It looks ultra modern ya? Love the design of this building.

Thursday, November 06, 2008


Saw this and realise that it has been opened.
The NUSS - National University of Singapore Society.

You can read more about NUSS at

I read in the newspapers about University rankings. Do you feel proud if the university that you studied went up the rankings? (THES-QS World University Ranking)

Both universities I studied (Undergraduate and Graduate) is still in the top fifty. You can't help but feel comforted that your degrees are worth something right? Although in reality, does it really matter?

Happy Birthday to 3 dear friends..

Wishing a very Blessed Birthday to 3 dear friends. There was 30 over of us, after our Bible Study, we sang Happy Birthday 3 times, each to the 3 dear friends.

And presented them with this little box of goodies from Gobi Desserts.

3 candles for 3 persons. The birthday boy and girls got to eat it.

Gobi Desserts are known for their petite cakes like the ones above.
Around $2 a pop! You can visit their creations at:

The Melamine Red Bowl that's too well used...

The word Malamine reminds people of tainted food.

Few days ago, colleague had their delicious bowls of fish soup. When they are done, this is what we saw. Perhaps the melamine bowls need to be replaced with new ones. The more than 100 Celsius hot soup must have 'corroded' the shiny surface?

Hmmm.. is this safe to use?

Manasseh Meyer Building

I met a friend at the NUS Bukit Timah Campus. This place is so peaceful!

Looks like there will be an evening seminar with bright lights in the rooms.

Nov 2008 Theme Day: Books

It's Theme Day for Daily Photo bloggers again. This month the theme is Books.

These are 3 out of the 8 library books I borrowed the last few weeks. These two Andalucia books actually went to Malaga with me! They are due to be returned to the library tomorrow! ;-)

The London book stayed behind because we have family in London to bring us around.
