Marina Barrage

It was a warm evening and ET suggested to go to some place cool, relax and unique. Yup...we ended up in Marina Barrage. It's our first visit and we fall in love with the place immediately.

Marina Barrage is Singapore's 15th freshwater reservoir. It is built across Marina Chanel right in the heart of the city. Brilliant idea and vision from our Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew.

Since young I have this fear of Singapore unable to generate enough water for our consumption and buying expensive water. I'm sure this reservoir will definitely boost our water catchment and prevents flooding to our lovely city's low area.

It was so breezy and magnificent. We stroll through the barrage's compounds enjoying the stunning view. My little princess was running and shouting "Singapore Flyer" when she saw the Flyer from the barrage. we then proceed to the green roof and there are teenagers having fun time chatting and flying kites while young kids were having their fun with the fountains. Me ? haha...busy taking pictures and enjoying the beautiful city skyline.

It is indeed an architectural masterpiece. To all my friends who love beautiful sight, here's the address and operating hours of Marina Barrage :
