    In an effort to promote tourism, I feel that the government has turned Singapore into one big amusement park in recent years. The following shots were taken during a recent business trip to the city state, so they were mostly shots taken in the evening and between meetings, and they don't even include the tourist locations like Boat Quay, Clarke Quay, Santosa, etc...

    1. A panoramic night shot of the Marina Bay:

    Finally figured out what the supertree grove at Gardens by the Bay reminded me of: Dragon's Blood Trees, found only on Socotra island, Yemen (botanically, one of the most unusual places in the world).
