Evening Events

The last 24 hours have been more pleasant than the previous 24.  We actually got a good nights sleep which made all the difference.

We were privileged to witness to two events last evening; one natural and the other man-made.

There was a partial lunar eclipse which could be viewed from our window, although I must confess that I initially failed to recognise it as such and simply admired the symmetrical shadow on what seemed a much larger than usual heavenly  body.

We were also treated to a display by the Singapore air force who were practising  for National Day with their jets, para-gliders and helicopters.

A big Chinook helicopter was towing a  very large Singapore flag behind it while the jets undertook aerobatics in close formation.

Late morning we paid a visit to the Marina Bay Sands resort to see what all of the fuss was about. We took the 502 bus to the Marina Bay Sands hotel and crossed over to the shops.  Needless to say, we were not tempted to pay the government tax of $100 and go into the casino.  After a brief stroll we took another bus to Esplanade and walked to Suntec.
