marina bay - 2012.01.28

There is nothing like walking to get the feel of a country.
A fine landscape is like a piece of music; it must be taken at the right tempo.
Even a bicycle goes too fast.

one of my favorite places in singapore, marina bay is just breathtaking.
whether it's after a stressful day at work, or i am out running errands, i try whenever i can to take a detour though the promenade.

it's a long walk no doubt, but very few places in the city are as picturesque or as calming.

the area bustles with activity on a weekend, but on a weekday, with nearly everybody busy trying to beat deadlines and just cope with work, marina bay is quiet and peaceful, and walking through it certainly is one of my secret and quiet pleasures.
