Flower Dome Architecture, Gardens by the Bay

The architecture at the Flower Dome at Gardens by the Bay has always fascinated me.

Beyond the beautiful flowers that reside within – this is the reflective beauty of the glass walls that stream light into its home.

Curved walls, patterns and textures, lines criss-crossing everywhere, reflection, defraction, illusion, imagination. Look up to the ceiling, steel beams connecting all that prism of light.

Light glow at the staircase…..stairway to heavens?…….well that is my imagination running a bit wild.

If you have not been here, from this montage, I hope you get a glimpse of what my eyes see.

Night photography with a group of friends from Shutter Journey (Singapore) Photography Group with the theme SJS Limited Series 50mm Mono Night at Beach Road

Things look very different at night. Especially in black and white. Focus was more on the architecture aspect.

Thanks for viewing! Have a great weekend! 🙂

Updated Photos on Punggol Waterway at Punggol Central

These photos were taken yesterday along that stretch of road near Punggol Central. I love the white arch architecture. It is quite distinctive. Someone was jogging down below while I was taking photos. Construction works are going non-stop from what I see, even on Sundays. At the other side of the road, many cranes dotted the skyline, hard at work.

At the other end of Punggol Reservoir, I discovered the creeper plants at that gabezo are actually morning glory plants and they are flowering. More construction works going on there as well. The right side of the construction site from Sengkang Park Connector has been barricaded but there is a footpath among the bushes.

Meanwhile, here are the pictures taken at My Waterway @Punggol near Punggol Central.

Update : The opening of Punggol Waterway or My Waterway @Punggol has been announced as 23 October 2011. More updates later!

Visitor Center at Chek Jawa

An architecture post today.

The Visitor Center at Chek Jawa in Pulau Ubin is a wonderful addition to the attraction on the island. After walking about 50 meters from the Hut waiting area – where the vans and bicycles need to stop – the Information Booth will greet visitors on the right.

There are three walking trails with directional signs from here. To the right is the Visitor Center. It is a beautiful tudor-style architecture. There are interactive information booth and display boards about the wonderful wildlife in Chek Jawa. Take the time to read. Move along to the front and a jetty down below greet visitors for further exploration.

Photos of the Visitor Center below.

KL View from Petronas Twin Towers

Let’s bounce to another city skyline.

This was taken a few years ago while we were in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s capital city. We went up to the Petronas Twin Towers and had a great time. The view was simply spectacular!

Petronas Twin Towers stands at 88-storey and quite an architectural marvel. The lifts stop at various viewing galleries. Looking down, things look so small and it was quite windy there.

These aren’t the best qualities I know, just did the best I can in cleaning them up. Strange how they end up with a bit of HDR look. Yes, it is a bit tilted. I don’t like following rules all the time 😉

Wellington Purple Sunset

Wellington, New Zealand

From one city to another city – Wellington, New Zealand.

On my first backpacking trip to New Zealand alone, I wanted to cover both North Island and South Island. This being my first trip to the North Island, I did not know what to expect. So basically the itinerary was left open and I just pinpoint a place I wanted to stay a night or two. As the ferry from Picton approached Wellington, the view painted a skyline very much like home. Big modern skyscaper buildings reaching for the sky, hustle and bustle of the city.

That evening, it was cruising time along the harbour. It wasn’t as crowded as I expected. So there was time for reflection, soaking in the view, watching people and the scenery went by.

Photo taking was leisurely done and this was one of the picture that turned out with the crescent moon in the backdrop.

Fun Facts
– Wellington is also known as the windy city
– Do you know that Wellington is New Zealand’s capital, not Auckland?

Sky View of Buildings from Orchard Road

Orchard Road is a blend of old and new buildings if one really look closely. This was taken from the top view of Orchard Central Shopping Mall.

On the left frame, construction are still ongoing for the condominiums. This is prime estate. Expect cost for a small apartment to be at the very minimum S$1 million though I suspect it costs a whole lot more.

On the other hand, those terracotta type roof tops of the shophouses are the remains of the old history of Singapore. Peranakan Place have such beautiful architecture. Must remind myself to do a close-up next time.

In the distance are the skyscraper buildings nearby Novena and Newton and what looks like the housing estates of Toa Payoh in the far horizon.
