After Royal Selangor, free time around Clark Quay and for some strange reason or it could be the fact that Smashpop is mind-controlling us from Malaysia, the friends of Lyle started to do the POPjump. Lyle too joined the fray and let us say that most of us, our legs were hurting badly with all the jumps.
Afterwards, it was a trip to Singapore Flyer. For those who has not been here, the Singapore Flyer is the world’s largest Giant Observation Wheel at a height of 165m overlooking Singapore’s Marina Bay and capturing glimpes of Malaysia and Indonesia. Each capsule can hold up to 28 visitors and a rotation takes about 30 minutes. Singapore Flyer was conceived and designed by Dr. Kisho Kurokawa and DP Architects, Singapore. It held its groundbreaking ceremony in September 2005 and was launched in 2008.
After we left Chinatown Heritage Center, we went on to the Mint Museum of Toys which is located next to Raffles Hotel at 26 Seah Street. Mint Museum of Toys is the place for the young at heart and those who loves to see all the classic toys from yesteryear. As we arrive at Mint, our group was split into two in which one group went for the Raffles Hotel tour while the group which Lyle was, did the Mint tour.
On Saturday the day after Nuffnang Awards, Uniquely Singapore gave all the attendees a once-in-a-life time tour of great sights in Singapore. The first place which Lyle’s group visited was the lovely Chinatown Heritage Center located at 48 Pagoda Street.
With only less than 5 days before Nuffnang Awards, many of us Malaysians are getting prepared by packing our luggage, checking our passport and changing money as we head down to Singapore to celebrate and participate in the first annual Blog Awards and 2nd anniversary of Nuffnang. Lyle on the other hand needs to just pack his luggage and dry clean his awesome coat and prepare some items.
As he looks at the group and the itinerary that has been given to him, Lyle is impressed by the places that his group will go to on Saturday and thanks to Uniquely Singapore, this will be good. Thus let’s talk about some of the places that the Cool Group will be roaming about and breathing in the sights and some places which they have listed, Lyle has not been there before.
