As you know, I go to Sentosa for swim every week. I know that most of my friends who read my blog are not from Singapore so I have decided to show you some pictures of how Sentosa look like. Please pardon me for the poor picture quality. My jie jie is never a good photographer.
I am on my way to Sentosa. Please come along with me.
As the name implies, it take only about 5 mins ride to get onto the island. Unlike taking the bus or car, there will not be any traffic jam.
These are some pictures taken on the Sentosa Express.
This is the harbor PSA load and unload the cargoes from the big ships.
Those big weight lifting monsters that are used to lift and arrange the cargo are Huge!!
Left is the Singapore main island and right side is the Sentosa island.
We have reached Sentosa!!! Wooohooo!!!They are building a huge resort and shopping area on Sentosa.
Looks like its going to be a huge and grand looking place. Let wait to see the building when the construction is completed.
We are reaching our destination, the beach station.
Did you see those wooden huts on built on the sea? It called the Kelong.
Such Kelong has already became extinct in Singapore but there are still some in Malaysia and Indonesia. You can read more about it from here.
View of the Kelong from the Sentosa Express Station.
Kelongs are for keeping fishes to be sold to the consumers in the Market as fishes caught from the sea but in actual fact, they just need to net it from their own fish farm so "Kelong" also became a term we commonly used to say that someone is cheating. hee...
Nope. They do not keep fish farm on Sentosa Island. This Kelong is used for the performance of "Song of the Sea". We have never watched it before yet thou.
Here we are. Just alighted from the Sentosa Express.
These are the beach trams that is used on the island to ferry visitors to the different beaches.
Ok. I am ready to swim. If you want more pictures of Sentosa island, let me know. I will try to take some pictures of those tourist attractions for you the next time if you are interested.
This picture is for Noah's D. Jie jie's version of Roasted Pork Belly. Can you tell from the picture that the skin is really crispy? hee...
Yummm... its chopped up and ready to be eaten. It goes very nice with white rice.
Do you want to try some? :P
