up in the air

Singapore is a obsessive-compulsive's wet dream. Everything is so neat and clean and organised.

The morning after we arrived, I took my progenitors to the Singapore Flyer, the largest observation wheel in the world at 165 meters above sea level.

Each capsule can fit 28 people, but since we were early, we had a capsule all to ourselves. (Father said, "How come we're the only people here? Are you sure this is the right time to go? Maybe it's still closed. Is it really worth going to?" Grrr... )

The first things you see are the Singapore River and the Formula 1 racetrack. Look at that river! Clean, clean, clean.

Make a wish when you reach the summit.

The one dollar coin is supposed to be a lucky charm, so each of us had one in our pockets.

What do the famous Esplanade Theatres By The Bay look like? Durian? Bug's eyes? Killer tortoises from outer space?

Even the construction areas are so neat. And wait! Are the ships anchored in straight lines?

It's a 30-minute ride which costs SGD29.50 per person. I asked about the Senior's Discount which was mentioned on their website, but apparently, they've discontinued it.

We had a good time. Pop hardly noticed how high we were, although he refused to stand up the whole time we were inside the capsule.

P.S. My father said, "Why are you shooting against the sun, ha? You won't see anything in your picture lah!" So I just showed him my LX3's pictures.
