Ah, interesting day yesterday. I think this post will be my longest post of all the post I typed last time.
Yesterday was my mother's birthday, and my dad decided to let us ride the Singapore Flyer. It was an amazing sight (at least for the scenery outside) although the entire structure is still shorter than the building near the Flyer which I think is the hotel in the Integrated Resort (and the buildings are still under construction). Photos are at the end of this post. After that I met Sherman. Too bad we didn't ride the flyer at the same time.
Next we went to some shopping centre which I don't know. And for the first time in my life, I went to Jack's Place and had dinner. Great steak (but quite a small piece; the potato, carrot and unknown vegetables took up most of the space). Then, obviously, we went home.
So anyway, here are the photos:
The Singapore Flyer from far (at some sky garden thingy) There's a problem with the uploading, therefore it looks identical to the one at the end.
I'm interested in the mechanism of this thing.
The mechanism again.
The ascend starts.
Some unknown construction site. I think that's the integrated resort, but I have very low general knowledge.
Roads with toy cars and lego buildings. (It's soooo true!)
The floating platform. I can't remember what's this used for. I think it's for NDP, but I have short-term memory.
Right then, I'm at the top of the flyer. As you can see, the building's much higher (it looks shorter, but that's because the distance between the flyer and my camera is less than the distance between the flyer and the building. Some vision perception thing. And this building's still under construction. It seems the cranes are on top of the building. Seems very dangerous.
The descent. Nothing much to take now, I took pictures all around the cabin. So many ships.
I tried to take a photo of the Sun, as you can see, but it was blurred. Too much light, I guess.
Up to some mischief. Like I said, there's nothing I can take. (Actually, my hand's hovering over the glass)
The Flyer from afar again. The End.
Well, the Singapore Flyer isn't too high. But it was a great experience.
