JB v4.4 - MBS

We managed to finish what we wanted to cover at the CJB company early, so after lunch, we headed straight across the stream straights into kiasu-land to waste some time while waiting for our return flight from Changi.

We were 3 malat lous, so going to Orchard Road was not really an exciting option. Instead, we went to sort of the newest attraction of the island republic: Marina Bay Sands.

I was here before last time, but didn't know what I was staring at and just assumed it was some stupid concept of 3 buildings topped up with a skateboard. This time I paid the buildings the respect they deserve...

We started with the building on the opposite of the road, which is where the shoppes and the casino are.

It feels to me that this building is just a mix and match between Cologne Train Station (Germany) and Bull Ring Birmingham (UK)...


and The Mines Shopping Fair (Malaysia)...


The casino on the other hand... well... photography is prohibited, so...

Let me just give a brief, straight to the point description of the casino: it is humongously large but the variety of games is very limited...


Then we headed over to the other side of the road, to the 3 stupid buildings... this is how it looks like on the inside...


To go up to the skateboard a.k.a Skypark would require us to pay S$25, our driver said we would basically go up there and watch people swim around... err, no thanks...

After lepak-ing for a bit more, we left for the airport... and flew back to Penang... business trip JB v4 is over!~
