Temporary Stadium

Today my photo for skywatch had many buildings with the sky as the background.

You can see many office buildings, hotels, the flyer (you called it The Eye) and the colourful blue, yellow, red and green seats in the background. The red seats are where the VIPs sat. This is our temporary stadium.

This temporary platform was where we held our recent national day celebrations. Our old national stadium was torn down to make way for the new Singapore Sports Hub. For more information of the old stadium, you can view here. We have many stadiums around Singapore but the national stadium is the largest in Singapore.

Thanks to Tom for hosting Sky Watch. For other sky watchers, you can go to Tom's skywatch blog.

I wonder if they'll keep this platform for future water sports usage or performance. Actually I find it quite nice. Especially sitting around there watching the fireworks :)
Have a good weekend Alice!! :)

Thanks for all the nice comments and dropping by my blog.

Elaine, I have no idea, I think the new stadium will also have a water theme. Looking forward to it, it sounds pretty.

Those seats are all temporary? Amazing what can be done now days. So many and so much to move.

I recognize those temporary stadiums; they were building them when we visited last year, but I did not know they were temporary.

Gordon, a new stadium (so much bigger and beautiful) would be built nearby. Not sure if they decided to keep this temporary stadium.
