    We were over a hundred thousand in the audience, which, spread over two evenings, got to experience the Irish rock giant U2 at their first gig in Singapore ever! The arena is quite simple for its construction but powerfully located in its own park just outside the city center. It is very accessible and excellently planned in its simple logistics and despite the fact that there were a lot of people at one time, all people floated on and could get to where they wanted fairly quickly. The arena's volume is so large that it almost feels like you are outdoors, and there is also a certain opportunity to open up the gigantic roof. It also requires a rock / pop band like U2 to fill the stage with the right show - and if it's something they can do, this is it!

    Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple is one of the oldest Hindu temples in Singapore. It is located in the region of Small India on Serangun Road. This large temple complex dedicated to Vishnu was founded in 1855, but the 20-meter high Gopuram was established quite recently, in 1966. Inside the temple are the statues of Perum (or Vishnu), his wives Lakshmi and Andal and his bird-mountain Garuda. The temple is dedicated to Krishna, one of the incarnations of the god Vishnu. Pay particular attention to the ceiling of the temple with a circular ornament and the image of 9 planets.

    Came here for a concert (I can't imagine why else you would be here). The venue is big and near a shopping centre, so it's great if there is a waiting time involved.

    Kallang Wave mall is really a good place to chill and relax. There are a lot of activities to do around here, ranging from sports such as Beach volleyball and Rock climbing, to having a good meal over at places such as Astons, Popeyes and many more options around the area. For sports lovers, this mall has a wide range of sports brands and you can be sure that you will be able to get your sports items or equipment around this area. For non-sporty ones, you can also head over to reputable brands such as H&M, Uniqlo or Daiso to indulge in some retail therapy!

    For those who just prefer to chill, there are cafes such as Starbucks, or you can just get a drink at the convenience stall and head out to the outside to side by the river and chill!

    At times, if you are lucky and you happen to be around the area during some weekends, there might be concerts held, and you might be in for a good music therapy!

    Overall, good place for family, friends and individuals!

    If you’re looking for a place in Singapore to do some lap training, this is it. You’re able to swim in either pool: training or competition; try them both. These are the cleanest pools I’ve ever been in. Easily accessible on the circle and it’s even half-price if you’re over 55. Swimmers Heaven.

    The Thousand Lampad Temple, or Sakya Muni Buddha Gaya Temple, is one of the largest Buddhist temples in Singapore. It belongs to the Thai Theravadin tradition. The temple was founded by the Thai monk Vuttisara in 1927.
    The height of the main statue of Buddha in the temple is 15 meters, and the weight is about 300 tons.
    Interesting fact.
    At Vesak, the annual celebration of the birth and enlightenment of the Buddha, the congregation brings a donation to the temple, for which they are allowed to place a piece of gold on the statue of the Buddha. By the end of the holiday, the Buddha is completely covered with a fresh layer of gold leaf.

    The temple was originally set up by Venerable Vutthisara of Thailand. The present premises are located at Race Course Road in Singapore.

    The Sakya Muni Buddha Gaya Temple is one of the most prominent and widely visited Buddhist temples in Singapore, often referred to as the Temple of 1,000 Lights. It features a 15-meter high statue of a seated Buddha, which weighs nearly 300 tons, as well as many smaller Buddha images and murals depicting the life of Shakyamuni Buddha. The large central statue is surrounded by a stylized aura made of numerous light bulbs—often lit during evening hours—from which the temple derives its nickname. In a small room beneath the altar is an image of a reclining Buddha, Buddha towards the end of his life, under a Yellow Saraka Tree.

    On Vesak Day, the annual holiday celebrating the birth and enlightenment of the Buddha, devotees donate money to the temple and in exchange are allowed to place gold leaf onto a small statue of the Buddha. As the day wears on, the Buddha is almost entirely covered in a fresh layer of gold leaves.

    The temple is open between 8.00 am and 4.45 pm daily.

    Admission is free.

    Huge indoor olympic pool with modern changing facilities is a real treat to swim in. A welcome respite from outdoor swimming which can be a bit warm at times. Staff were friendly, facilities were spotless. The running track around the stadium is a great idea and the food court was really good value. Lots of options and healthy choices.

    I visited the Central Sikh Temple in an evening. The temple is very close to Boon Keng MRT and bus stops. The temple is beautiful from the outside and majestic inside.
    All age groups are welcome here. We got a chance to attend a public food festival, organized every weekend. The food was very nice and fulfilling.
    You can read about the founder of the Sikh religion from many paintings. The temple has ample public amenities and you can spend about two hours here.

    Tip: carry a headscarf.

    This mosque was built by a wealthy Malacca-born businesswoman in gratitude for several escapes from danger.
    The wooden window balcony above the two-storey entrance gate reflects a Moorish design. The parapets of the minaret are inset with green glazed Chinese porcelain tiles. The minaret consists of an eight-sided peak atop a two-tiered octagonal tower on a square base. There are Doric capitals on the first three tiers of the minaret. The minaret tower is believed to be a copy of the tower spire erected on the first St Andrew's Church.
    The minaret tilted slightly due to the sandy soil on which it was built, leading it to be nicknamed "Leaning Tower of Singapore". This mosque was gazetted as a national monument in 1973.

    The Temple is near to OFH where we had a recent staycation. Very quiet on a Friday afternoon along Race Course Rd (close to Little India area).
    Leong San See is a Buddhist temple built in early 1900s, and was rebuilt to its present site. The Temple Main Deity is Guanyin (also known as Goddess of Mercy/Compassion) 观音. There are also Other Deities 众神/佛 worshipped and are placed near the main altar too. Very much alike those temples we visited in HK & Taiwan.
    Impressive and intricating carvings on its beams, and the roof are well decorated with elaborate figurines from the Chinese mythology. The architectural style of the temple closely resembled that of Chinese-style palace with dragons and a blazing pearl adorning the roof. Not many worshippers. Incense filled the rather cramped interior, and we noted that both entrance and exit are quite narrow… something we do not feel too comfortable
    it is just across diagonally opposite the Sakya Muni Buddha Gaya Buddhist temple so rather easy to find.
    It has been 22 months since the Covid-19 outbreak and the lack of overseas tourists due to travel restriction meant it is a good opportunity for us to rediscover our own SG backyard. 
