Marina Bay Sands SkyPark Observation Deck

More pictures of the Marina Bay Sands SkyPark Observation Deck as well as what was observed. Smile

Notice my mother is a distance away from the edge of the observation deck. And notice that I am even further from the edge. Actually the part I am standing on is already protruding out of the 3rd tower, but this is how the mind plays tricks. It is super windy up here, which adds to the amazing feeling. Try not to wear loose caps or you probably won’t see it again.

Pathway leading to the pool. Isn’t it crazy that this picture was taken 57 floors above ground, when it looks just like a normal park, trees and all?

The mandatory souvenir shop, so you don’t leave empty handed. Ku De Ta’s just above the shop.

Those shades hide the swimmers from view, but really, you just have to poke your head between those shades to enjoy the visual feast.

Now you’ve seen many photos of the iconic 3 towered Marina Bay Sands. Have you seen the SHADOW of Marina Bay Sands? That construction going on down below is the new Gardens by the Bay. Really looking forward to its opening. And those clam shell structures will be the climate controlled greenhouses. It seems they will be planting and showcasing plants from temperate countries in there.

If you’ve been to temperate countries like NZ and UK, they have climate controlled greenhouses to replicate a tropical rainforest climate, horrid humidity and all. I suppose people living in cold countries may be curious to know how it feels like to be in the tropics, but really, I much rather visit a cold greenhouse rather than a hot one!

You can literally “see” how windy it is. Singapore looks so flat from up here. There is a little lump of a mountain right at the very eastern end of Singapore. It looks like it is in Singapore, but I don’t think so.

Can you see the huge bit of land that is forested on both sides and totally cleared in the middle? I wonder if that is the Paya Lebar Airbase. I had no idea it was that huge and taking up so much space.

Did you know the Floating Platform has been transformed into a football pitch? It kind of looks very cartoony from up here.

Ku De Ta @ Marina Bay Sands

Be prepared for a slew of Marina Bay Sands SkyPark photos this weekend!

A visit to the SkyPark just doesn’t feel complete without having a bite or a drink up there. I would highly recommend that you have a drink at Ku De Ta, while people watching the steady stream of tourists. Being up there, it really gives you the “on top of the world” feeling. It’s just awesome, and if you have the chance, you should really pay a visit to the SkyPark too. Singapore has never looked so pretty and picturesque!

Ku De Ta Fruit Juice

Ordered Cranberry Juice and Mango Juice at $10 each.

You have to snag one of the seats under the red umbrellas, or else the sun’s rays will just zap you into a sizzle. Service here is not that great. We were totally ignored at the entrance, and we had to manoeuvre around the seats ourselves, waiting for an  empty table to appear. Once we got out table, which looked out in to the vast expanse of sea, it was all worth the wait.

You can tell why these seats are all not taken, it’s just TOO HOT without the protective red umbrellas!

myVillage evening visit

Made my 2nd visit to myVillage on Saturday. I was hoping to catch the sunset before having dinner at Shin Kushiya. We made it just in the nick of time. The traffic towards Serangoon Garden was quite horrendous. It was the inch and jerk type, I was almost quite sure the sun would have set by the time we got there.

Check out the photos I took here!

I didn’t know if we could actually catch the sunset on the roof of the myVillage mall, but apparently you can. The minute you get out of the escalator and onto the roof, the last of the sun’s rays hit you. Alas, it was pretty cloudy so I couldn’t get good pictures.

As I previously mentioned, being able to have rooftop access is pretty cool. Yeah it’s not the roof level of Marina Bay Sands, but the 3rd floor roof top of myVillage has its own charms. For one, you’re away from the hustle and bustle of the roads below. You still get to overlook most of the buildings in the vicinity, as they’re even shorter! You can get a really good view of the sky and the stars at night, cloud cover pending.

There’s also another cool spot which I bet hardly anyone knows about. It’s so secluded yet cool and romantic I wonder if I should share this secret with anyone. Right next to Shin Kushiya is an automatic door. Step through it and you’re on a ledge right outside the mall. The ledge is very narrow and long. I suppose it’s a smoker’s stop of sorts but no smokers were there. The night lighting made it quite interesting. I would post a picture of it but once again, my camera failed on me. Remember to let your camera assimilate to the humid temperature first before taking off the lens cap after coming from an air-conditioned place!!!

Not all the shops were open when I was there on Saturday. Apparently myVillage will be having its official opening ceremony this Sunday 20th February 2011. Check out the details at http://myvillage.sg/. Also check out my post on my 1st visit to myVillage as well as the blogger’s invite to myVillage and Shin Kushiya.
