Cruising the Singapore Flyer

I've been digging some old photos again and found some taken nearing Christmas in 2009. That time, I was spending my Sunday with my then-boyfriend lurking around the Vivo City Mall. So to say, it was his first time checking out Vivo City in Harbourfront hence I brought him there all the way from Bishan. At noon, he received a phone call from his elder brother who works in Singapore. He offered us to visit Singapore Flyer in the afternoon - tickets on him. Jackpot! I mean I personally probably would not go to Singapore Flyer since I've gone to London Eye before because I always thought that the view of Singapore from up there would be pretty predictable. Anyway, free ticket for us so no reason for not checking one of Asia's big attractions out. Furthermore, this monument, which is currently the tallest Ferris Wheel in the world, was quite new about two years ago. I think it was launched back in 2008.

We didn't know how to get there, so my then-boyfriend and I took a cab from Suntec City to the Singapore Flyer's location. We hung around there for a bit whilst waiting for his brother to come and distribute the tickets for both of us.

One of the capsules: In operation.

I guess Marina Bay Sands was still in construction then.

Once we completed the rotation for approximately 30-40 minutes up in the air, we touched down and had a afternoon snack at the cafe.

Our snack. I always love the Mint Chocolate Ice Cream.

I guess that's about it. We've officially observed the Singapore Flyer.

It seems that Singapore Flyer now has offered various interesting packages from regular flight, sky dining, VIP cocktail flight to renting a private capsule for unforgettable event with the exquisite panoramic view from the top.
