Double Helix Bridge

The Marina Bay Double Helix bridge will be opening this Saturday 24 Apr 2010! This opening will be marked by a fanfare of celebrations with dances, performances and fireworks!

Unlike what I have thought previously, the Double Helix bridge is not a vehicular bridge. It is a pedestrian bridge which
links one part of the Marina Bay area to the integrated resorts.

With the opening of the Integrated Resorts in just a few weeks time, the whole of Marina Bay will be transformed into Singapore's latest crowning jewel. What will be in the pipeline will be the completion of the new downtown, the Singapore's second financial district at Marina Bay as well as the Marina Bay Botanic Gardens!

With these developments, together with the Marina Barrage, the newly opened Circle Line as well as the existing developments at Marina Bay such as the Esplanade and the Flyer, the splendid Marina Bay is indeed an area that is not to be missed by all visitors to Singapore!

The whole of Marina Bay is really a great place for sightseeing and visit for tourists and for me a Singaporean, Marina Bay is a great place to relax after a hard day of work!

Kudos to the authorities for its meticulous planning to create a wonderful living place out of our limited land! Who would imagine that Singapore will have a universal studio right here on our doorstep at Sentosa?

There was a suggestion in the newspapers yesterday in which a reader wrote suggesting that Pulau Ubin be turned into a retirement village. Pulau Ubin with its lush vegetation and mostly untamed environment could be recreated to become an ideal idyllic place to retire, he argued. Well, I think the writer's suggestion is quite good just that such a 'retirement village' should be implemented in a controlled manner else the influx of Senior Singaporeans will blight the natural charms of Pulau Ubin... and we will soon lost the last frontier of rural Singapore.
Please read this post for my and my Dear visit there!
