I've to admit, me and my husband went there, supposedly to watch the opening show for Singapore Art Festival 2009. It's a performance called Helios Ii by By La Compagnie Malabar. I've been planning to watch this opening show, because I'm very impressed by last year's Singapore Art Festival opening show, called Water Fools by performed by acclaimed French street theatre company Ilotopie (see the pictures here : http://www.flickr.com/photos/muzikbug/2518055113/in/photostream/ It was AMAZIIING!!).
Anyway, as you can see here
The crowds are craaazy.. We couldn't secure a nice place to watch the whole show in peace (unlike last year's opening show :P) And at the first glimpse of the giant grasshopper, I felt like maybe it's better if we just amuse ourselves with the architecture of Marina Barrage and whatever this place has to offer. :)
Welcome to Marina Barrage !! :D
The roof top
It's such a perfect place for a picnic, and to smell the ocean, and to enjoy the wind .. :)
Now this is what I call romantic. :)
Up on the dam.
Us. Again. :D
Sorry, I just couldn't help it.
See you in the next post !! :)
