Singapore from Marina Barrage

By admin

There’s a little place snuggled into a far corner of Gardens By The Bay where people go to find an elusive patch of grass and feel free. And fly kites. Marina Barrage makes Marina Bay. The water slowly lapping at the feet of downtown skyscrapers and the Merlion is a man-made reservoir created by the…

007 in Concert

By admin

Gooooollllldddfinngaaaahhhhhh… Bond. James Bond. The movies go hand in hand with the theme music. Maybe even, in some cases, the songs eclipse the actual movie. Oscar nominations and wins prove that point, actually! Thus and therefore we have concerts and performances centered purely on the classic Bond music over the past five decades and further…

So it was at the Bootleg Beatles who played at the Marina Bay Theatre recently. There were screams of exultation…

Unlike S.E.A. Aquarium I would highly recommend you buy your tickets online for Gardens by the Bay, print them out, and get them stamped at the turnstiles in to the two conservatories. Because they are actual tickets! Yes! The queues for tickets were horrendous when we went (Good Friday) so online tickets are a good…
