My World Tuesday - City Hall


Last weekend, hubby and me went to the City Hall for the "open house" and hope to get to visit the interior of the building but the closing time was 7 pm and we were there around 8 pm....arggghhh.

The building will be closed for renovation and restoration and will be completed in 2013



Saw this door knob on the door in the shape of a lion's head. The handle in its mouth are for knocking the door.

There was a light show on the facade of the city hall's building.

Some short videos to show the light show. I was not very impressed by the light show. I wish they have some music to accompany the light show. I saw some light show on facade of buildings in other countries in You Tube were very amazing and fantastic.

Dong, City Hall is opposite a big field known as "The Padang" and The Padang is just opposite the esplanade.

Alice, I was there taking the same shots of the City Hall from across the road on Saturday. We arrived at around seven twenty but spent time taking photos outside. By the time we crossed the road and got to the entrance it was close to eight o'clock. I saw a lady taking photos using a tripod wearing a sleeveless top and white shorts. Was that lady you???? :-) Anyway nice shots of the details which I did not take as I was also fuming mad because the info in the papers was so misleading.

Mable, hahaha, I told you one day we would meet mysteriously. Yes I was there around that time on Saturday. Why did you look for a woman in brown? Dont you remember I love purple? I was wearing a purple and white tee shirt with jeans and yes I was sitting beside a lady with the tripod stand but I think she is wearing black top...hahaha. Oh my, this is so interesting. One day, one of us will ask: Are you so and so? :) You are so right about the opening time, I was mad too.

Mable, there will a light up Marina coming mid October to November. Let's see if we could meet again mysteriously..lol. Look out for someone wearing purple...hehehe.

You might like to view the map of the light up in Marina.

It will be a real challenge to complete the whole map in taking photos. Now, let's hope it would not rain in the night.

Thanks Alice for the info about the Marina light up. Oct to Nov - that's a long shot. Well, if you are always wearing purple, that will increase the chances of spotting you. Okay, let's hope we meet, as you put it - mysteriously :-) during the light-up!
