One Fullerton, Battery Road, Fullerton Hotel , Merlion and Singapore Flyer

The Singapore Flyer, Merlion ,Fullerton hotel , Clark quay , Boat quay and offices in Battery Road (Most likely chosen due to Maybank building in Battery Road) are featured here. The boys were so excited when they saw Singapore that they screamed across the park to let Mummy and Daddy know where it is. I guess it would not be hard to identify them as a Singaporean.

Pirates@ Legoland Miniland

The Miniland is great for a quick whirlwind tour around Asia. Hopefully there will be enough time for photo taking for the next time as there are so many details waiting to be captured in print.

Interestingly, the Miniland lights up at night! So if you are at LEGOLAND on the day it close at 8pm, you can see the lightup of the Miniland. So don't miss it if you are staying late at LEGOLAND.
