Sunday evening walk

When I was a child, the Fullerton Hotel was the General Post Office, Clifford Pier was where we took bumboats to Kusu Island annually and Marina Bay Sands , our Integrated Resort was was not even a dream back then. Lau Pa Sat or the Old market was hot and grimy and the Satay Club was located at the esplanade that was not at all like the Esplanade of today. This evening we went to Lau Pa Sat for Dinner and had satay next to this old market that is now a tourist attraction. Fullerton Hotel has taken over Clifford Pier and now houses a posh Chinese restaurant under its beautiful arches and Marina Bay Sands rises like triple Gods of Fortune bestowing good luck on us.

Marina Bay Sands (Casino and high-class entertainment)

Reflections of new office buildings and residences.Modern and cool. I prefer those with more character.

Marina Bay Sands - how do you ignore a building like that?

The former General Post Office.

Lau Pa Sat or Old market in the background. Satay stalls do a good business on weekends on the road next to Lau Pa Sat when in the evening.

Very beautiful photos of Marina and Clifford Pier. I too remember going to Kusu by bum boat from CLifford Pier. Maybe back then, we could be in the same boat as I have a reply to your comment in my blog. :)
