My World Tuesday - Murals in Underpass Tunnel

I was walking in the tunnel and was immediately attracted to the beautiful murals in the tunnel. As I google and found that is part of Singapore turning 50 next year celebration and to beautify most of the tunnels around Singapore. Think is a good idea otherwise is very boring to walk in a dull tunnel.

For more information about the murals you can view the website of Singapore River.com.

The theme of the murals tell the story of the birth of Singapore. From the time Sang Nila Utama witnessed a lion and named the island Singa, to the birth of a bustling trading port, to a celebration of lights, colours and the vibrant city that Singapore has evolved into today.

The drawing of the tiger I think is more likely the animal the prince saw cause wild tigers were more common in old Singapore rather than lions.

Will look out for more murals if I come across any tunnels lol.

Skywatch Friday

Was walking along Singapore River and impressed by the neat rows of colonial building and new buildings. But the building that caught my eye looked like the flying spaceship. It is actually Singapore Supreme Court

Another building with a ship lookalike was the Marina Bay Sands. Look as if a ship has been blown onto the top of the building.

Doraemon (Xiao Ding Dang) Christmas Tree at One Raffles Place

I was at One Raffles Place, in the busy financial district of Singapore. Saw this huge christmas tree made out of cute Doraemon Stuff Toys. They are so cute. I guess after the christmas the toys would be sold and donated to charity.

There's a contest going on to guess how many stuff toys of Doraemon used to make this tree. I did not join the contest.

Pink Saturday - Christmas Decoration at Orchard Central Shopping Mall

This year, Orchard Central Shopping Mall was voted by the public as the best dressed for christmas decoration in Orchard Road. I love it too, lots of fairy and unicorn. Lots of pink too so I thought I would like to join this week Pink Saturday.

Saw two huge shoes in the mall, hmmm seems like both are right footed.

Lots of mannequins in and around the mall, looks unique and attractive.

A pink wishing well, people actually tossed coins into the well to make wishes.

A pink swing, oh this is my favourite.

Christmas 2014 on Pedestrian Night in Orchard road, Singapore

Last Saturday night was pedestrian night, the third closure of part of Orchard Road for the pedestrian night. The theme for the 3rd pedestrian night was Christmas on a great street. You can read more about the six month event on Pedestrian night from official website.

Was great that part of Orchard Road was closed, easier to take photos of the christmas decoration along the street, but my photography skills was terrible lol.

Even our Merlion was out on Orchard Road celebrating christmas.

This is a rather new mascot, little durian star. the mascot for Singapore at the World Expo in Shanghai in 2010.
