After enjoy the Singapore Flyer, we went to Esplanade by bus again to our next destination, Esplanade. Esplanade is a theatres on the Bay sits on prime waterfront land by Marina Bay, and offers a complete lifestyle experience - dining, shopping, and the performing arts. Not to mention, it was a great spot for photoshooting as well =P

Around 3.30pm after visited Raffles Hotel, we gathered again and moved to our next destination by bus, Clarke Quay. Before we able to walk around Clarke Quay, we visited Singapore Royal Selangor Pewter Museum. I nv knew Singapore do have Royal Selangor Pewter as well -__-..oh well, i seriously enjoyed it because i never been there b4, not even in KL 1..hahaha

The most surprise was, under Royal Selangor sponsor we are given special class doing our very own hand making pewter bowl with our name or whatever words on it. We are given a basic tool such as hammer, nail (with alphabet on each), a round pewter and a wood that got curve shape on it (allowed us to make d curve shape on d pewter).

After everyone done, Josh arrived (he attended the 2nd batch lesson on Selangor Pewter) and joined up wif us. We took bus to the next destination, *jeng jeng jeng*, SINGAPORE FLYER!! YAY! I reli excited and wanted to sit on it! A very random question, Singapore Flyer and Eyes of Malaysia, which bigger @_@?

Thanks to Nuffnang sponsor, we get to ride Singapore Flyer for free! One "basket" of the flyer can occupied roughly 30 ppl. WOW! So damn cool rite? Plus, we get to enjoy the view of Singapore Marina Bay. I bet the scene will look nice if we are going on right time, which is sunset.
