Looking out of an Ang Mo Kio apartment window, this is the theme for December for the Daily Photo network as well as the right description of how it looks like when we ‘look out’ from wsboon’s window. In the evening, there is possibility to see amazing sunset like this. Wanna to see more of other ‘looking out’ themed day photos, click here.
Singapore street scene with Esplanade in the background. A multiracial Singapore society and here most Singaporeans either speak English (as a first language) with another language like Malay, Tamil or Mandarin Chinese. Some people speak Colloquial English better known as Singlish. The spelling use is the British spelling, the grammar is British too.
There are some bridges on the Singapore River that are worth seeing. For example the Alkaff, the Bayfront, the Cavenagh, the Clemenceau, the Coleman, The Elgin, the Esplanade, Jiak Kim, Kim Seng, Ord, Pulau Saigon, Read, Robertson and The Helix bridge.
The Merlion is a well-known mascot of Singapore, it is the national personification of Singapore. This is 37-metre tall. It is right at the Sentosa Island. Do you know, there are another four other Merlions of different sizes and materials. The original one is only 8.6metre and it is at the Merlion Park. Two other 3metre ones are made with polymarble, one at the Tourism Court and the other at Mount Faber. The remaining is just 2metre cub statue right behind the original Merlion statue. What kind of mascot does your city/country use?
Another beautiful blue hour I cannot get enough of Singapore River. This time for Clarke Quay. End last month I featured a blue hour of the Chinese Garden and it was very well-received. Clarke Quay is also a famous touristy must-see. It is upstream from the mouth of the Singapore River. So you see those traditional bumboats that tells the historical story. Thanks to wsboon for capturing these lovely colours in the blue hour!
The Sri Mariamman Temple at No. 244 South Bridge Road is Singapore’s oldest Hindu temple. It is an agamic temple, built in the Dravidian style. You can find it in the downtown Chinatown district. It has been gazetted as a National Monument with to its historical and architectural significance. Click here to see other must see places.
Seems I like the blue hour of Singapore very much This is another stunning shot made by WSBoon. Isn’t it great in contrast with the lighting of those in the foreground? Here is another great shot of the Chinese Garden also in the blue hour.
Surrounding the MacRitchie Reservoir is a boardwalk as well as some walking trails. Some of my friends like to jog there, or some even regularly run around there to practice for their marathon. Photography enthusiasts usually like to explore this place for good shots, for freshwater wildlife and here is also where you can find some pitcher plants. Have you seen the 250m aerial free standing suspension bridge called TreeTop Walk?
