A trip to Mount Faber (Final part)-View from the park

Tourists from China are having a good time taking photos from this little park on the beautiful view from here.

This is the huge cruise ship which had just left the cruise centre at Harbour Front. The cruise centre will be relocated to a newer and bigger cruise centre at Marina South in a few years time.

Good view of the housing apartments where majority of Singaporeans own their own apartments. Our Housing Development Board just won 2008 United Nations Public Service Award. The United Nations (UN) has conferred the 2008 United Nations Public Service Award for "Improving transparency, accountability and responsiveness in the Public Service" to HDB for its Home Ownership Programme.

We are a very tiny country so our houses are built upwards.

I have never been to Mount Faber, It looks like a great and beautiful place.
And I would love to be cruising in a ship like this one, one day.
Enjoy your family gathering, come back safe and happy.
