Back to nature... Labrador Nature Reserve

Labrador Park is a 16ha reserve situated along Labrador Villa Road off Pasir Panjang Road, and is well-known for its WWII relics and bunkers, as it stood as the bastion on Singapore's Southern coast in the British defence against the Japanese invaders. History was not my cup of tea but if you are here, you just have to follow the history trail to learn about the historical importance of Labrador Park.

The park overlooks the sea and it's a good place to unwind by enjoying the park and the beach at the same time. This park is also a good fishing spot. It's common to see local anglers along the jetties especially during weekends. A large variety of flora and fauna can be found both within Labrador Park and the rocky beach nearby. The beach at Labrador Park is an area rich in plant and animal diversity.

A moving experience at every turn...

I used to call this London Eye when I haven't accept that Singapore can also have one like this.

Standing 165m tall or 42 storeys high (as if living in a HDB flat), with capsules the size of small buses, here is Singapore's very own Singapore Flyer. Passengers can stroll (yes, stroll) around 28 air-conditioned and UV-protected capsules, each holding up to 28 people, and on a clear day you can enjoy a 360 degree view of the cityscape.

In the background of this picture, on the right is the construction of the Marina Bay Sands – one of Singapore’s 2 upcoming IRs as well as the Marina Barrage, a dam being built across the Marina Channel to create yet another reservoir for our water-scarce island.
In the foreground is part of the F1 racing track.
