If someone else has one around the world... Singapore will have its own. This is a ride I wouldn't pay for. Not for the original ticket price of SGD$29.50 for a 30min ride on the 165m observation wheel. For the record, the Singapore Flyer officially launched in March 2008 is currently the world's largest Ferris Wheel, until the Beijing Great Wheel is launched next year.

The Yakult Rainforest Discovery at the base of the Flyer. They should have called it the 'Lactobacillus casei Shirota Rainforest'

I really wasn't complaining on the overall experience of the ride. The fact that I got it free as part of the program of a Knowledge Management new application version launch was all the more sweet. Plus I could take time off work and I won myself a 8GB iPod Nano (4th Generation) in Metallic Yellow at a contest. Triple Sweet!

After selling away my 1st Gen iPod, I've gotten very used to using my Nokia XpressMusic 5310 for music on the go. The iPod was sold almost instantly to Gerard at 'friend's price'. I figured that I could exchange it for something else... a sports watch... a new bed... a 37" LCD TV... Had I won the iPhone 3G, it would have been a whole different story.

We boarded the capsule around 6:30pm which would have made a great timing for a sunset dusk view. Unfortunately, it poured heavily in the afternoon and the skies were only starting to clear up. Visibility was still very good nevertheless.

Considering the rapid transformation of Singapore's skyline in the next 2 years, it was still worth the time to catch a ride up for a bird's eye view of the Marina Bay vicinity.

In anticipation of the launch of the Sand's Las Vegas Casino and Gardens by the Bay, this panoramic picture will be a very different one
