I had mistakenly thought that Gardens By The Bay was officially open, and asked the boy to drive us there on Tuesday. It turns out that the official opening will be in June 2012.
Upon u-turning out of the area, we happened to see lots of kites dotting the sky at Marina Barrage and decided to take a few pictures.
We ended up enjoying the breeze, visiting the gallery, and having peanut butter and kaya toast on a nice and cloudy public holiday afternoon.
The view of Marina Bay Sands now includes the Super Trees!
People having a picnic, napping, or just plain chatting on the green roof. You can even rent the place for a corporate function or wedding reception.
I've never seen this many kites dotting the sky!
The boy's favourite kite that day.
This is the first time that we noticed there's a gallery on the 2nd floor. All about cherishing water in order to have a sustainable supply.
A simulation of flood control showing crest gates at the dam letting excess water from storms out into the sea, alleviating flooding in low lying areas in the city.
My yummy lime juice with bits of sour kana.
The toast was pathetic compared to Toast Box, but with a view of the sea, the food is secondary ;)
