Genting trip

It was raining throughout the few days I was in Genting. The weather disappointed me! But I was still having fun playing almost all the indoor theme park games and rides. In this trip, my luck was so good that I didn't want to go back to the hotel at all but I spent most of my time in the casino. I didn't sleep for 48 hours until I came back to Singapore.

Here are some photos of my Genting trip.

I was staying at the Resort Hotel.

At the lobby.

Queuing up for the ride.

Space Shot is my favorite.

Shooting up to the top.

The rain started to pour heavily with thunder storm after this ride, so I didn't manage to take the rest of the rides at all! Because they were suspended.

Hiding from the rain inside the Chocolate house.

Hoping the rain would stop.

But it didn't.

So I definitely will come back to Genting soon, but not in this rainy season. Maybe in summer!

Going to Genting

A few hours later I'm going to Genting, Malaysia.

Before leaving, here are some photos of me and Xiao Bai that I took few days ago.

Where are you, Xiao Bai?

Here you are! ^^

Give me five!

Good boy!

Caught you!

I always hug Xiao Bai tightly before going out.

Marina Barrage

Marina Barrage is Singapore’s first reservoir in the city. It started opening to the public recently.

The first thing I saw when I reached the barrage.

Walking on the Marina Bridge, left my footprint here lol!

The water is so clear! This place reminds me of the romantic Dan Shui harbor in Taiwan.

Can you spot the Singapore Flyer behind me? The round wheel?

Exploring the galleries.

In gallery 1.

"Central to this gallery is the "organic tree". Illuminated by a play of three colours, it symbolises the uncertain state of our present environment..."

In gallery 2. "Rewinding back a few decades, Gallery 2 recounts the clean-up of the Singapore and Kallang River..."

Gallery 3. "...features the Active, Beautiful, Clean Water Programme, launched by PUB in 2007..."

See the programme in action.

Gallery 4. See how the Marina Barrage works with the demonstration of the innovative barrage model.

Gallery 5. The view of the water catchment area for the reservoir.

In gallery 6. This gallery was really dark with lots of tiny little lights on the wall, as if I was in the starry night.

Grabbed a Passion Kiwi smoothie and a snack after exiting from the galleries.

On the way to the roof top.

Walking towards the roof top.

Water playground view from the roof top.

There are such a big grass field in the middle of the rooftop, lots of people having a picnic and flying kites there. Awww, I'd like to fly a kite too!

There was a siren and an announcement telling everyone that they are going to show how the barrage works. So everyone gathered to see it. This picture showed that the barrage gates have opened and the water was gushing out into the sea.

I couldn't catch the sunset view that day, as the sky was getting gloomy as it was going to rain.
