Standing just outside Singapore's The Fullerton Bay Hotel is possibly one of the island's most unique structures.
The OUE Tower was built in 1971. Then known as the Change Alley Aerial Plaza, it features a glass-framed bridge linking Clifford Pier to Clifford Centre and was built with pre-fabricated rolled steel section frames.
The bridge used to house a selection of shops and money changers popular with locals for its favourable rates.The Plaza also features a 39-metre high revolving tower which used to house a restaurant offering a panoramic view of the bay area. A Chinese restaurant, the exclusive Tóng Lè Private Dining, has taken over the premises.
The bridge and tower underwent renovation works in 2009 and reopened the following year.
@TheRSAF A330 Tanker Transport aircraft makes its debut at this year National Day Parade, accompanied by two F-15SG fighter jets. The F-15SG jets will complete the show by performing dynamic manoeuvres including shackle pass and steep vertical climb.
A number of people told me I needed to see the Henderson Waves bridge, which connects Mount Faber Park to Telok Blangah Hill Park. I’d seen dozens of photos, and it indeed looked pretty cool. From afar it reads like a bridge that is twisted upon itself into a spiral (see last photo).
In person, however, I didn’t find it especially impressive. The spiral is largely a superficial element—when you’re on the bridge, you’re on a flat strip looking into that facade. Further, it hasn’t been well-maintained; the metal fins that give it its shape are discolored with mildew (see second photo). And while many photos adjust the saturation to compensate, the decking is in an awkward middle-ground of fading. Ultimately, it feels like something that wasn’t designed for its environment.
Obviously, a true spiral bridge would be impractical and unsafe. But I have to imagine there’d have been more interesting ways of integrating the spiral into the actual walking experience, while also choosing materials that would age more gracefully under Singapore’s demanding climate conditions.
That said, it’s absolutely worth going to if only because the trails it connects are impressive. And there are also some neat design elements that are easily overlooked if you’re not paying attention. I’ll highlight both of these in subsequent posts.

I wonder what's the story behind this portrait and why it's being trashed?

Seru sih ke Jewel ini, perpaduan antara seni dan teknologi dalam bentuk yang cantik. Ada 2 cara ke sini:
1. Tanpa keluar imigrasi, naik skytrain T2 - T3, dan sebaliknya. Bisa ngeliat view kayak di video 5/5.
2. Keluar imigrasi (karena Jewel ini sebenarnya adalah mall di luar airport). Klo dari T3 kedatangan jalannya lumayan sih, paling deket dari T1 keberangkatan. Konon katanya perlu spare waktu 5 jam sebelum flight klo mo ke sini, daripada marathon.
Sampai Juli ini bisa liat parade Pokemon setiap Sabtu-Minggu jam 14.00 & 18.00 😍😍😍 kayak di video 3/5. Apa yang terjadi klo 1 pikachu didorong? 🤔🙄.
Psst photo 2/5 difotoin netizen karena solo trip. Haha tunggu tips & tricknya ya 😂

Journeys don’t always work out how it should, and having your loved ones beside you makes things better!
Learning to cook and making cute Panda Futomaki Sushi Roll with miss little bento, Shirley Wong, a top bento artist, blogger & cookbook author in Singapore. With the same knowledge, technique and skills taught in class, I can transfer the same to love ones and had fun at home.
I can customise ingredients used for sushi roll just like 'Build My Plan' with @m1.sg according to my budget and needs such as adding more data to my base plan.
Harmony is the composite product when individual musical voices group together to form a cohesive whole. Think of an orchestra: the flute player may be playing one note, the violinist plays a different note, and the trombonist plays yet a different note. But when their individual parts are heard together, harmony is created.
Ukelele is simple instrument to create music. It is fun, effective and no prior musical knowledge is required! By learning a musical skill in a group, one can have fun and enjoy the learning process and bonding together.
Attended the Railways Challenge where kids has to learn about the infrastructures, safety, precaution and maintenance needed to operate MRTs. Kids' challenge is to construct the train tracks to cover as many MRT stations as possible across Singapore island.
Also at the Land Transport Hero Academy, where children can find out more about the unsung heroes of land transport and the critical roles they perform through interactive exhibits and games. Children will also be able to learn how everyone plays a part in contributing to a safe and pleasant journey.
Had fun with the interactive activities and multi-sensory exhibits, such as taking on the role of a transport planner and trying their hands at planning an efficient and sustainable transport network and experience the work of public transport workers through Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) experiential activities.
