See that ironing board?

I had some ambitious goals this Sunday morning. Ten kilometers (6.2 miles). I did them all, but it was a combination of walk and run.  I met up with a willing friend at a subway station at 7:30 a.m. I was running late because I mis-estimated the travel time.
We started at the subway station (also called the MRT - Mass Rapid Transit - station) and made our way along the Singapore River.  We saw many new buildings and I snapped a few shots. Here are the sights.

 Basically, we ran along the Singapore River and saw mostly the new buildings and some old ones.

This picture, you see the ferris wheel looking thing that's called Singapore Flyer (like the London Eye)
and that tall  building on the right that looks like an ironing board is a new casino and shopping place.

A lot has changed. The Singapore Government reclaimed part of the land and built some of these
Running through this part was a wonderful way to see the new additions.
It was slow and it was already hot and humid. I messed up many a times on the Garmin.
But according to my friend, we definitely hit at least 10K.
I'll take that! 


  1. Great job on the 10k!!! I love seeing what you get to see while you run.

  2. Those pictures are amazing, so modern and cool :) Great way to do sightseeing and running :)

  3. Looks like a great way to see your city.

  4. Great pictures! And sounds like you had a good run. Thanks for sharing. :)

  5. Thanks for sharing the photos! Good job on 10K!

  6. Those are some really cool, unique looking buildings! I guess I've never really thought about what I think Singapore might look like. I didn't expect an ironing board casino! ;)


Thanks for reading! Do leave me a comment or two. They keep me motivated.
