Singapore (PT II)

I would like to think of myself as more of a traveller than a tourist. I prefer to look at the way locals live, rather than monuments and tourist attractions. My mum is the complete opposite. Our second day in Singapore involved heading to an older and a newer landmark. 
Entang Wharso's work  'Temple of Hope: Forest of Eyes' at the Singapore Art Museum.

The Marina Bay Sands casino and hotel. Yep. That's right. Theres a freakin boat on a building. 

Singapore Harbour by aerial cruise ship.

ArtScience museum, Marina Bay, Singapore. We were lucky enough to see the Warhol retrospective show. 

Singapore by night. 

Light and bubble and laser and water and everything else spectacular. 

On the bottom six levels of the hotelcasinosaurus lies a shopping centre. But not just a normal shopping centre to go buy jeans and cds and crap. That would be too common. This shopping centre only has brand names. And not just McDonalds. Prada, Gucci, Armani, Coach, etc. etc. etc. There was a consumer camera shop which had a few Leica S2s in the window and some special edition M9's. And appropriate glass. Ya know, no big deal.
