The Straits Daily - Yale-NUS - 14 July

Our first full weekend together started off with a gym session at a local gym, Gymmboxx, at 9am. After lunch, we headed out to the top of Marina Bay Sands to catch the breathtaking view of the city. Despite the blistering heat, everyone had a fantastic time enjoying the view and the occassional breeze with several pictures to show for it. Then, we headed to the lotus-shaped ArtScience museum to visit the Alice in Wonderland exhibit which was interesting. Who knew there were so many adaptations of the story?! 

Before heading to Gardens by the Bay for dinner, we spent a couple of hours at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands perusing the many designer brands. At the Gardens, the contemporary greenhouses - Cloud Forest and Flower Dome were just as spectacular as their names sound. One features the world's tallest indoor waterfall and the other features giant cacti, a fairy garden and other exotic plants. We ended off the night lying on the floor gazing up at the enormous Supertrees enjoying the music and light show.
