ใ€336/365ใ€‘This is one of the coolest interactive exhibitions I've ever visited!
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
There was a similar exhibit in SF last year at Pace Gallery but I missed it so I was really happy to catch it in Singapore. The lights are constantly changing colors/patterns and you can actually control which show you want on your phone. It goes from white to blue to purple and everything in between. I spent a good hour here just at this exhibit, half because I was in awe and half because there were so many people there that it took me forever to get a decent photo. ๐Ÿ˜ญ

ใ€334/365ใ€‘Rainbow watercolor buildings. ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ˜
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
On my long list of things to do in Singapore, there were 3 things I wasn't able to do:
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
1. The Future of Us exhibition, which was being torn down. 
2. Yayoi Kusama exhibit, which had ended.
3. The Rochor Center (pictured here), which was closed to the public since it will be torn down soon. You can't take any good photos from ground level so I was really disappointed since it was one of the buildings that I really wanted to see. So I did some more research and saw that people were actually taking photos of it from the building across the street. I decided to spontaneously revisit again on my last day and was able to get this shot. I was so happy that I was able to get a decent shot with this cool building before it disappeared! MISSION COMPLETE. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

ใ€333/365ใ€‘Digging the vibrant, colorful shophouses in Little India.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
Indians make up one of the three predominant races in Singapore, with Chinese and Malays being the other two. I love how they are very respectful and inclusive of everyone. In the public transit announcements, they always do it in like 4 different languages.

โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
As I mentioned before, the architecture is one of the reasons I love Singapore. This building here was one of my favs! It's just a regular residential building. I spent like 2 hours here, just enjoying and admiring it while all the aunties and uncles gawked at me for taking photos. ๐ŸคฃThe more I travel, the more I appreciate the architecture in other countries. Tired of all the cookie cutter stuff we have here.

โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
The new Apple Store on Orchard Road (Singapore's busiest shopping street) opened this May. It has become an IG hot spot because of its beautiful minimal aesthetic and two sets of sexy staircases. You know how much IGers love cool staircases. Like moths to a flame...๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ˜œ

ใ€328/365ใ€‘Meet me at the rooftop public park on the 47th floor at noon? ๐Ÿ•›
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
That is something I would never say here because we don't have anything like that! All of our public parks are on ground level. ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป But in Singapore, it's a thing. They actually have several rooftop public parks on top of residential condos (or HDB flats as they call them). I only had time to visit one, Skyville@Dawson, pictured here. There was pretty much no one around so it's a great place to relax and take in the nice views overlooking the city all for FREE 99.

ใ€326/365ใ€‘Did you know that #MarinaBaySands is built on reclaimed land?
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
Can't go to Singapore without posting a photo of this iconic building. I learnt that the whole Marina Bay area is built on reclaimed land. There is a street called Beach Rd where the beach used to be, but now it's in the middle of the city. So everything beyond this street is built on reclaimed land. That is amazing to me how they were able to stretch the country that much further. Now I'm wondering, why don't cities like SF or NYC also reclaim land since the demand for properties are crazy high?

โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
I've been making a point to visit aesthetically pleasing libraries when I travel. There is usually one in most big cities. There is a very attractive one in Singapore. Library@orchard is actually inside a mall. I guess this is not surprising since Singapore has a million malls and shopping plazas. ๐Ÿคฃ It was first opened in 1999 but closed down for a few years for renovations. It reopened in 2014. I wonder what it looked like before. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €

ใ€322/365ใ€‘Living in LA, where it rains like 3 days a year, I don't get much of a chance to do puddle reflection shots. The closest I've done are reflection shots at lakes and beaches. However, in Singapore, it's quite the opposite. It rains everyday except for like 3 days a year. I follow a good amount of IGers in Singapore and have always admired all their puddle shots. I finally got a chance to do one of my own when I visited! Thank you to @hasiiff for showing me how to do a proper puddle reflection gram. Now I'm inspired to bring a gallon of water with me the next time I go shooting. If LA is not going to give me a puddle, I'm going to make my own. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ’ฆ
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
Have you done puddle reflection shots before? If not, I highly recommend trying it. It's a lot of fun. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €

ใ€321/365ใ€‘Decided to start my series on Singapore today! I'm super early for once. ๐Ÿ˜…
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
Singapore is the epitome of an "urban jungle". Since it's near the equator, it's hot and humid all year long. There's lush and green foilage everywhere! Also, they really make it a point to incorporate plants into their architecture. Pictured here is the park connector, a bike/pedestrian walkway that connects all the parks across the country. The distance from the east coast to the west coast is only about 30 miles. I felt like I was walking through a rainforest even though I was in the middle of the city. The connector is not fully completed yet but will be done in 2018. ๐Ÿšฒ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ
