I’ve been trying to write this continuation of our Day 2 in Singapore with no avail. Every time I attempted to do so, the photos wouldn’t appear. Instead of worrying about it, I just left my laptop alone and didn’t turn it on for a couple of days. Today, I finally turned back on – and what do you know? I can finally write this much awaited post! Anyway, I enjoyed my brief time away from WordPress (and most other sites that I browse when I’m on my lappy), as I was able to finish the third book in the Game of Thrones series! I’m thinking of reading some Stephen King (Pet Sematary and The Shining), as a friend suggested those titles and it’s been a while since I’ve read horror/mystery fiction.
Now, back to the topic at hand in this post I’m going to write about our trip to the Cloud Forest and our ~journey~ to Skypark Marina Bay Sands (MBS).
This waterfall is manmade, and I think that’s what makes this all the more awesome.
A map of the Cloud Forest. At first, we thought that the only attraction that we would see in the Cloud Forest is the waterfall, but we were proven very wrong, as it was actually huge inside.
More photos of the waterfall. I think that at certain times of day they also emit fog in the area. Anyway, when you pass by this place, I think it’s inevitable that you will get a little wet.
Of course, if you don’t mind getting a little wet, you can get close to the waterfall.
Oh, look! A friendly face. ᶘ ᵒᴥᵒᶅ
When you look up, chances are, you’ll see these walkways.
These aren’t real plants, but I’m not sure what they are made of. Legos are my best guest, to be honest. ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ
Yes, we did climb up! The view from above is really different from the one below. Also, I didn’t notice this while I was taking the photo, but I do love the effect of the glass dome in this photo. It kinda reminds me of a spider web.
F for Freedom! Spotted this eagle among the foliage.
There were a lot of people, yep. Anyway, if you’re afraid of heights, I think you’d rather skip walking along the walkways.
I can’t remember what this place is called, but it is still part of Cloud Forest. It features a lot of different crystal formations.
There’s also a room with this big screen on it. There’s a short film about climate change and global warming and how it will affect the world in the next hundred years.
After we finished our walk around Cloud Forest, we ate at the Mcdonald’s nearby. Ugh, how I missed McSpicy! Now I’m back in the Philippines, I miss it again. 😥
Close-up of the Sky trees.
A lesson that I think most of us learned in elementary as children, but end up forgetting as we grow older?
Real trees covering the Sky trees. Of course, with how huge the sky trees are they can’t really be covered.
Ah!! So near, yet so far. My mom actually thought we were going the wrong way because there wasn’t much people, but there were signs that lead us to this way so we trudged on. Good thing we did, because, yep, we were going the right way!
Too bad that it’s close though. Then again, I think you can get the same view (a higher one too!) if you just go to MBS Skypark.
We passed a bridge to go to Marina Bay Sands. Here’s a photo of the river (lake?) that we crossed.
You can really see the boat shape of MBS. On top is the Skypark – our last destination for the day.
Given the chance (especially a free one lmao), I would love to stay at Marina Bay Sands. I mean, the view in one of these rooms would probably be amazing.
Inside the building. We didn’t really get to explore the inside at all, because we were dead tired after going to the SkyPark.
More Gardens by the Bay view.
I think this land is a big golf course.
View of the Singapore Flyer and Gardens by the Bay – you can see the Flower Dome, Cloud Dome (& Forest), and the Sky trees.
A little kiosk where you can buy snacks and some drinks. Above it is a place restricted only for the guests of the hotel.
Wider view of Singapore’s skyline.
The view here is mesmerising and I think it’s worth the price to go up here and look at all the buildings.
Took this while I was seated and waiting for the light show. You can see the Singapore Flyer from here. Anyway, had another conversation with a random person.
Random guy: Are you waiting for the light show too?
Random guy: What time does it start?
Me: I think it starts at seven thirty-er.
Random guy: Sorry?
Me: s-seven thirty.
lmao where did that stutter come from. I don’t know. I get tongue-tied when random people talk to me – perks of being an introvert. ;v;
Random conversation count: 3 (Another tourist came up to me at the MRT station asking where to buy tickets hhhh)
The difference between the view that you’ll see at 6PM and 8PM. Both are awesome views, in my opinion, but as it gets late (and with no flash!), it becomes more difficult to take a good photo, in my opinion. That, or I just have really shaky hands.
One last post about my Singapore trip coming up in a few days! (❁´▽`❁)*✲ﾟ*
