Wednesday Wanderings and Wonderings.

I went for a little walk today as I wanted to take a couple pictures from a place (ended up not liking any of them) then a move to another place to take another updated photo but it was not possible either (it was cordoned off) since I was within walking distance (well my own term walking distance not necessary other people walking distance 😉) I went to a third place and was not pleased with the situation or photo opportunity either.

You would think that with all those inconveniences I would have written this morning off but on the contrary I had lunch at a dumplings place which I never remember to go to unless I’m in the neighborhood, coffee with a view of the Marina Bay Sands hotel and a 4 kms walk around the city.

As I was heading to my MRT station I made a quick stop to take a picture of the Fountain of Wealth at Suntec City so I had a little something to share.

Suntec City was designed by Tsao & McKown Architects with emphasis on Chinese feng shui. The five buildings and the convention center are arranged so that they look like a left hand when viewed aerially. The Fountain of Wealth appears like a golden ring in the palm of the hand. As the fountain is made of bronze, it is believed that the balance of metal and water paves the way for success. Further, the specially selected Chinese name, 新达, means “new achievement”

The Fountain of Wealth is listed by the Guinness Book of Records in 1998 as the largest fountain in the world.
