    Hello NEX-ian,

    Wanna share some photos taken on last Sunday, on my visit to Singapore Gardens by the Bay - the latest addition from by the Singapore government to transform Singapore from a "Garden City" to a "City in a Garden".

    It's a nice place to visit, for outdoor recreation and gathering.

    For more info, please refer to Gardens by the Bay Official Site

    Beautiful city Singapore... a really safe place too. I've been there several times, mostly short stop-overs for connecting flights but I've only had enough time to look around once a long time ago. Clearly there's a lot of new stuff cropping-up and happening in Singapore. Might plan for a longer stop over for a trip I'm planning next year...

    Thanks for sharing! :)

    Hello Dioptrick,
    Thanks for the comment.
    You should plan for a longer stop over next time and spend a few days, lots of interesting places for photo taking. I believe you will like it =)

    I've seen a cable TV documentary about Superstructures where they featured what I think is the Marina Bay Sands in the background. Is that the one where they replicated a tourist ship ocean liner (complete with swimming pool) on top of those buildings??

    Yes, that's the Marina Bay Sands (MBS) in the background =)

    Pardon the small size and quality as I couldn't find the photos locally so I linked them from FB.

    Most of the shots were taken with A850 with Minolta 20/2.8 except the Panorama and 3rd infinity pool shot, they were taken with DSC TX9.

    Ops I'm in wrong forum :eek:

    Cheers.
