It's work rain or shine....

For some people in Singapore, it's work rain or shine!
Even though they are perched high up in the sky!

Work Rain or Shine

It was raining quite heavily too! The aircon man's partner is holding 2 umbrellas preventing him from getting wet.

Great colleague eh? How are your colleagues at work?
Always looking out for each other too? Or are they the back stabbers?

Mass Exercises

It was like nearly 10 pm, and I was a group of super enthusiastic people still 'exercising'.

I used to join in group exercises like this for years, until recently.
I became lazy and have tonnes of excuses to give!

Dance Fit

Do you think group exercises are fun?
Somehow when you do this fun exercises in big groups, it's not so tiring!

Marina at Keppel Bay

We were having lunch in front of this place at Keppel Bay.
It sure doesn't look like Singapore, does it?

Keppel Bay

Momo and I suddenly thought of the Marina that we were at in Cullen Bay in Darwin Australia that we visited some time ago!

It would be nice if we own a yatch and can set to to see during the sunset.....

Have you taken a sunset cruise anywhere before?

hotel 1929

I should one day check in to stay in this hotel for the fun of it! All because I saw this comment on Lonely Plant:

But I am taking it with a pinch of salt. It's retro and quirky for the writer, but I can just imagine many people from Singapore exclaiming, "Aiyo, this kind of chairs also can use for hotels. My house used to have that, we threw them away because it's so antique." hehe... 

hotel 1929

For the fun of it, I read reviews about hotels on the different hotel booking website. Trip Advisor usually have interesting very contrasting views. Do you trust what people say?

How do you pick whose comment to trust?

Pearl Bank Apartments

Whenever I pass by this apartment, I am in a moving vehicle, either in a bus or a car.
So when I take shots of this building, it's always a bit blurry.

I kind of like this building because of it's unique shape. I don't know how to explain, but if you google and read more about it, you might too.

Pearl Bank Apartments

If you take a look at the behind of it, it's like a 'horse-shoe'.

I just noticed something as I put up this post.
I realised that this building is actually taller (171m) than Pinnacle @ Duxton (168m)!

Pearl Bank Apartments

If you have been following the news, there are some staying here who wants to en-bloc the building.

There are also residents who are opposing people selling their homes. This site is quite interesting:

St Regis

I was having a meal with Momo at the restaurant in St Regis the other day.
On the way there, I looked up and I suddenly wished I was staying there.
I wished someone would sponsor me a week's stay there. LOL

When you go on holiday, which hotel chain is your hotel chain or choice?
I used to stay loyal to hotel chains, but nowadays, I just book the ones that offers the overall best deal.

Do you realise something? If you book a cheapo no name hotel, wifi is usually provided free or charge. But if you book those high end hotels, you have to pay for wifi and it does not come cheap.

Bike Shops...

I did not visit the shop, I was just passing by snapping photos from inside a vehicle.

It's a motorbike shop! I have not seen one for some time. Well, that's because I seldom go to places that has bike shops.

On the glass door, is a sticker that says "New Ducati Monster S4 now". 
Ducati Monsters are known as the "naked bike". ;-)

Bike Shop

Can you ride a bike? Do you have a license?

Singapore Newspaper Distributors Association

I never knew there is an association for newspaper distributors until I saw this last Saturday!

Singapore Newspaper Distributors Association

I assume the people who joined the association are those who distribute newspaper in the wee hours to household all over Singapore.

Do you think newspaper distributors have a tough job?

Is that a hole?

I happen to saw this on a building. I wonder what happened. There are holes on what looks like pillars.

Hole in the wall...

It reminds, that what you see is usually it is. One look and that looks like a big pillar.
But it now looks like it is just a hollow column.

I am still curious, what happened!
Such a big hole!

Singapore's Sydney Opera House miniature?

Singapore's version of Sydney Opera House?

I was holding my camera up and took a photo and when I saw the preview screen, I thought it looked a bit like the Sydney Opera House.

Ya, call me lame.

Singapore Sydney Opera House? LOL

The above is part of the MBS ArtScience Museum.
Can you spot which part of it I took?

MBS ArtScience Museum

Anyone gone inside? It is worth the ticket prices?
I wonder if there are any free days to go in.

Orchard Road - Road Raising

The roads are being raised along Orchard Road.

Orchard Road - Road Raising

I got confused recently when I took a bus to Orchard Road.
The bus stops have shifted and I got down the wrong stop.

Orchard Road - Road Raising

On another note, this photo reminds me:
"Look right, look left then cross." That's the thing to do when crossing the road. :-p
