Skywatch Friday - Singapore Management University and Bras Basah MRT Station

This is Bras Basah MRT Station. I took these photos when I was on my way to visit the museum. It is very convenient to visit the National Museum and Peranakan Museum via the MRT.

Upon exiting from the train, we could see the roof of the Bras Basah Station was filled with water. The water was not due to any recent rain but it was purposely filled with water. So that when viewed from the park, it is a reflection pool, from the station platform, it is a skylight.

I did not go up to street level to take the reflection pool, cause I make use of the underground pass to go to the museum. Maybe one day, I will go there again just to take photo of the pool from street level.

The long underpass from the MRT Station linked to SMU (Singapore Management University). It is strange that the underpass is actually part of the university where I saw several students studying and I did not try to take photo of them cause everyone seems to be looking at

Exiting from the underpass, is the university just next to National Museum.

The location of the above building is where the old National Library was. I am very sad that they decided to demolish the old library, have fond memories of going to the old library with my siblings and also with my friends.

Lots of plants growing on the building of SMU.

This tree was saved when the old library was demolished.

For other sky watchers, please hop over to Skywatch blog.
