Singapore: Marina Bay Sands

It was year 2008 when I last visited Singapore before this 2011. During that time Marina Bay Sands was just in the mid of cimpletion, but I already saw 3 buildings being constructed. I never got close to it, and only saw it from a far on my way to the airport.

Two years later, there it is. Marina Bay Sands was completed.

In our latest trip, we visited Marina Bay twice. The first was during the night and the second one was in the afternoon. The pictures taken during the night didn't look so clear, so we wanted to get another shot at it.

Singapore: Double Helix Bridge

While walking in the paths outside the Marina Bay Sands, you will see a wonderful view of the Esplanade on the other side of the waters.  But as we walked further to the Marina Bay Art & Science Museum, we glazed upon the famous and first-ever "Double Helix Bridge" in the world. 
When we were still in the Philippines planning for the places we will visit, I did see this in the internet.  I wanted to include this in our itinerary but thought that we won't have time anymore considering already a full schedule.  I didn't gave time to research on the double helix bridge anymore.  Good thing that I was able to read about this.  If not, we might not know it was already the famous bridge even if it was in front of us.

Kota Kinabalu: Poring Hot Spring

After having already spent 2 days in Kota Kinabalu, we wanted to spend sometime to relax and just enjoy the day.  We wanted to take a dip in the hot springs in Poring, like our prize after getting ourselves tired walking in the heat of the sun.  We took a van going there which was part of the tour that we got.

South Korea: Cherry Blossoms at the Hangang River

Cherry blossoms appear only for a few weeks during the cusp of spring and summer in Korea. They may blossom only for a short while, but when they do appear, these tiny baby pink flowers are spectacular (especially for first time viewers like me.)
