Tuesday late afternoon one week ago I went to the Peranakan Terrace Houses. These are old wodden buildings from the beginning of the 20th century. Their style is inspired from Malaysia when it was still occupied by the Dutch. As the former Dutch colonial government raised taxes due to the width of the houses, these houses are rather narrow, but therefore pretty long. In the evening I went to Marina Bay and had a walk around it. I was there during sunset. Hence, the lights of the skyscrapers were switched on, and they got illuminated. Unfortunately the famous Merlion fountain at the Marina Bay underwent construction works. But luckily I had seen one at Mount Faber just two weeks ago. After my walk I met Dinah at the Rain Oculus at Marina Bay Sands. Marina Bay Sand is a large shopping mall, with Theaters, Casino and an indoor gondola. Somehow it reminds me to The Venetian Resort Hotel in Macao. But honestly the one in Macau had more flair and was much better. The Marina Bay Sands just looks cold and sterile. I watched the Laser and Water show directly infront of the Marina Bay Sands. The music had some nice themes from Hans Zimmer. Afterwards we went to the neighbouring Gardens by the bay in order to attend to the light and music show at the artificial trees. We didn’t go into the hall, first it was too late and second it’s just too expensive 😅. Also this show was pretty nice and was mainly a medley from hits from the 1970’s. But Dinah told me that the music changes a lot. Afterwards she showed me four of her secret places, but as they are secret I can’t report them here in public 😅. All of them are accessible by the public, but nevertheless, hidden gems, which might only know some locals. I really enjoyed them, and are grateful to have them discovered.
