That what u often see in garden rite? Greenery, fresh water pond and a fountain(merlion). It will be an everlasting Singapore icon like the statue of liberty in New York. Imagine u drive along the express way and u can see this huge merlion statue fountain with lighting effect at night. What a view from the Singapore Flyer as well. Definitely good Fengshui!!!! Now we can have a father merlion (Garden by the bay) guarding Singapore waterfront, a mother merlion nesting at Sentosa and a baby merlion playing at the finance centre waterfront.

Any designer here? can u do a artist perspective view drawing?

erm. i think the merlion is an embarrassment to the country. its the ultimate expression of kitsch turned into nationalism; an invented myth that school children substitute real history for...

Yongnam clinches S$58m contract for structural steelworks project

24 Aug 09

SINGAPORE: Singapore-listed construction firm Yongnam Holdings said it has clinched a contract worth S$58 million.

The company has been appointed by Woh Hup as its direct sub-contractor for a project, undertaking the structural steelworks.

Under the terms, Yongnam will design, supply and construct structural steelworks for the construction of the key buildings in the 54 hectare Gardens at Marina South.

Works are expected to be completed next October.

I found the people in Singapore to be very hospitable. Before I went I had heard a lot about how strict everything was supposed to be - no littering, no chewing gum, don't mention politics etc. etc. etc. While some of it may be true, on the whole I found Singaporeans to be far less up tight than I expected. Every time I went through customs and immigration, I got a smile and had a friendly chat, and I had no fear in talking to the police on the street, asking for directions etc. By contrast, I found the people at customs and immigration in America to be really quite rude, almost nasty. And in many of the countries I've been to, I would not have the confidence to speak to the police to ask for directions or anything - they just look too threatening. Singapore is certainly no worse than other places, and is often better in many respects.

Except for some developing countries where police might try to make money out of you, I don't think anyone should be afraid in asking directions from the police. Its not like they are waiting for you to talk to them so they can arrest you.

Btw, in most places people are far more friendlier than in North America particularly U.S where they are particularly rude as you said. Don't know why. China, japan, singapore, malaysia, etc are all pretty welcoming at the customs. Same goes for most european nations unless you look like an african or indian in which case they are cautious but still not rude.

Nice garden btw. I love singapore.

Yes, singapore is a beautiful place, with that I agree. What I'm just saying though is they should be hospitable to everyone. People from my nation, despite having the means, are treated quite rudely, especially when we enter immigration or browse through stores. People from first world nations aren't their only tourists. There were repeated times when I ask this nearby stall kindly about their goods, but was received with a gruff 'go away' or a shrug. I guess what I'm really saying is that its nice that singapore is attracting all these tourists with their beautiful developments, but they should also better improve their hospitality and do not discriminate their tourists. I'm proud to say that tourists in my country, though not as many as Singapore, are receives the best in hospitality coz that's what we Filipinos are known for... I guess this is starting to become a racist post, but I really had no intention of disuading people to go to singapore. It's a great place. Thats all...

Thirty-three-year-old Valerie Sim (2nd from right), who was visiting Gardens by the Bay with 11 other family members, is the one millionth visitor.

SINGAPORE: Just seven weeks after its opening, Gardens by the Bay welcomed its one millionth visitor on Saturday.

The gardens have become a popular leisure spot for Singaporeans from all walks of life.

Some popular attractions are Dragonfly Lake, Heritage Gardens, the SuperTrees and Conservatories.

Thirty per cent of visitors so far have gone into the Conservatories, with Singaporeans making up three-quarters.

Thirty-three-year-old Valerie Sim, who was visiting the gardens with 11 other family members, is the one millionth visitor.

National Development Minister Khaw Boon Wan presented the sales and marketing executive with an annual family pass, a gift hamper and his personal gift of an iPad.

"(The place) is really pretty and nice, and the weather is really good to enjoy the scenic view," said Ms Sim.
