Weekend in Singapore, 2011

I took my GE x5 for a stroll over the weekend at Singapore. This is my first out-of-the country trip this year (2011) and apart from going to Universal Studios, Sentosa, Marina Bay and other hot spots around the city, I also look forward to taking a lot of photos using GE X5, just like what I did in Taipei. I do hope you enjoy some of the shots using my camera.

Of course, the Universal Studio Logo is a must to be taken. This is an early evening shot of the famous logo that stands in front of the theme park.

This is the Hollywood area of the theme park with a lot of restaurants and souvenir shops.
This is a photo of Battlestar Galactica and the Mummy Ride, two of the most popular attractions in the theme park

Another shot of the logo, we came in early and the park was still closed, so might as well kill time by taking photos.

The following day, we went to Marina Bay area and also took some pictures. This is a shot of the Singapore CBD from the balcony of the Marina Bay Sands Skypark. Here is a shot from another side of the balcony of the Skypark with a fantastic view of the Singapore Flyer
Now here is another angle of Marina Bay Sands from the park adjacent the Singapore Flyer.
Here are some great photos of Marina Bay Sands and other adjacent buildings like the ArtScience Museum, Marina Bay Mall, etc. Another night shot of the Singapore skyline Singapore CBD taken from the Marina Bay Sands Skypark.
I just can't help but take more shots of Marina Bay Sands.

GE X5 Fireworks Shots - 2nd Pyromusical Competition

It has been a while since I used my GE X5 for artistic shots, simply I don't have time for the past couple of weeks to do this. But last 2.11.11, I just have to bring my camera and my tripod and watch the 2nd Annual Pyromusical Competition at Mall of Asia Bay Area. I can still remember last year how I used my Canon 1000d for the event and produced great results, but that was a thing of the past. I am confident that with GE x5's manual capabilities, this camera can be at par with the shots I took last year. True enough, this little gadget did not disappoint me, so here are some of the pictures I have taken from GE x5.

The Pyromusical Competition will run all Saturdays from February 12 to March 12, 2011 at the Mall of Asia Bay Area. Ticket would range from Php100 to Php1500. But I would suggest for you to get a decent reservation at any veranda restaurants in the bay area. You can get as much as Php300 per head which is already consumable, depending on the restaurant you want to dine.
