Chinese Medical Hall

A typical chinese medical hall in Chinatown. As a frequent customer, the staff allowed me to take photo of the shop and their products. Yayyyyy.......

Some of the chinese medicines and these dried herbs are proven to be beneficial for health. I used to patronise my favourite medical hall in chinatown to buy herbs for boiling my cantonese soup.

They even have dried starfish...........yikes.......I only take dried cuttlefish not

Changi Airport Terminal 3 opening 9th January 2008

Today I visited the new Changi Airport terminal 3 ( it would be officially open and operating on 9th January 2008). It is so big and we walked so much and we were so tired. Most shops are not open yet. Geez, looking at it, I think the next time I travelled I would be shopping in Changi Aiport even before I boarded a plane....hahaha. All my favourite shops are in there. Now I believe why we are alway no. 1 airport in the world. Our existing Changi Aiport Terminal 1 and 2 are already very good and now with terminal 3 , we really are very spoilt with good shopping, dining and travelling

You dont have to fly to be in Changi Airport. It really looked like a big shopping Mall. with 140 retail shops and F&B outlets with the most desired lifestyle brands and well loved dining establishments.

This is the main departure hall (photo shows only the main portion, it is actually very very big).
Majority of the wall of Changi Airport Terminal 3 are built with towering glass walls. One can view the interior of the transit area.

Even the lifts are all glass walled. This is so cool.
This spectacular five storey high and 300 m wide vertical garden features 25 species of climbing plants which you can view from both the Departure and Arrival Halls.
The plants are watered automatically.
Now I would end here and would post more photos when all the shops are fully open.

The Oasis Building has a long history.The Oasis building in Kallang - slated to be torn down for the proposed Sports Hub.The building, home to three restaurants and two bars, is owned by Oasis Holdings. It was rumoured that it would be closed down end of this year.

Oasis building with its restaurant on stilts.

My favourite mascot, the Lion. This statue had been around for a long time.

The Oasis Restaurant-famous for its taiwanese porridge. I hope that after Oasis building is torn down, Oasis Restaurant would continue in a new place, I would definitely missed their taiwanese porridge.

The Merlion was first designed as an emblem for the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) in 1964 – the lion head with a fish body resting on a crest of waves quickly became Singapore’s icon to the rest of the world.

The fish tail of the Merlion symbolises the ancient city of Temasek (meaning “sea” in Javanese) by which Singapore was known before the Prince named it “Singapura” (meaning “lion” (singa) “city” (pura) in Sanskrit), and represents Singapore’s humble beginnings as a fishing village. (Source: Uniquely Singapore)

The merlion is facing the uncompleted integrated resort owned by Las Vegas Sands Corporation. The much talked about resort because of its casino being the first time being allowed on Singapore Land.

Esplanade Singapore

Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay is one of the world's busiest arts centres, officially opened on 12 October 2002. This architectural icon with its distinctive twin shells, is sited within Singapore's civic district, just by Marina Bay at the mouth of the Singapore River.I tried to take a nice photo of esplanade too but I just dont get the correct position to take a nice photo.

Ok, managed to get a photo of one half of the thorny roof (hahaha)
This photo shot looked good. Closer view of the thorny roof. Does it looked like our favourite fruit - durian (the king of fruit)

Closer View-I think I taken a nice shot (hehehe

Vivo City (inside the mall)

Vivo City was officially opened on 1st December 2006. It is just one of the many shopping malls in Singapore (a shopping and food paradise).

Sometimes it get so crowded but the good thing is Vivo City is very big and spacious for all.

I love taking photos of escalators. But I think I did not take a good photo of it. I guess it was because of my fear of (Look at my other posting on escalators.....

The interior and colour of vivo city is very nice and soothing. I like simple colours and not too loud colours, it make shopping more relaxing....

And who could have forgotten about food. There are many restaurants in vivo city and of course food courts with different ethnic food that is inexpensive. Kopitiam is a non-halal food court.

Banquet food court is a halal food court means it served no pork. Isn't it great with the wide range of choices of food in Singapore.

Bum Boats Singapore

In Old Singapore, bumboats were extensively used for transport purposes along the Singapore River, Rochore and Kallang Rivers, and also along the coast of the mainland and the other nearby islands.
But today, there are few bumboats left. Bumboats are converted as river-taxis ferry passengers mainly tourists along this historic waterway, Singapore River, for unique sightseeing and pleasure rides up and down river. Pickup and disembarkation points are along Boat Quay and Clake Quay.
The bigger bumboats are converted to restaurants. The buildings along Singapore River used to be warehouses but they are now converted to pubs and restaurants.

There are several bridges of different designs along Singapore River. Picture shows Read Bridge.

Sentosa was once known as Pulau Belakang Mati, which in Malay means the "Island (pulau) of Death (mati) from Behind (belakang)".

The Malay name for this island is literally translated as "dead back" or "behind the dead"; belakang means "at the back" or "behind"; mati means "dead". It is also called the dead island or the island of the dead.

Different versions of how the island came to acquire such an unpropitious name abound. One account attributed the ominous name to murder and piracy in the island's past. (source: Wikipedia)

In a 1972 contest organised by the Singapore Tourist Promotion Board, the island was renamed Sentosa, a Malay word meaning "peace and tranquillity". (source: wikipedia)

Several ways to get to Sentosa from main land, Singapore. One is by car, by public bus, sentosa express (you can see the track in the above photo), by cable cars (see below photo) and you can also walk there.

Closer view of cable cars.
