10,000 steps around Marina Bay

My 10,000 steps had been sorely missing since I came back from italy. Last week I had another stay at The Sentosa and had an envigorating walk. This week I was back on the beach again and tried the food at the new Tanjung Beach Club. The bruschetta was puny but the fruit bowl was gigantic...great for the cholesterol test this morning!

After the cholesterol test, I took a train to City Hall station and then had a good workout walking to the Helix bridge, and then circling all round Marina Bay, with views stretching from Esplanade-Theatres on the Bay to the Sail, a ritzy apartment block in downtown Shenton Way.

In between, the skyline of the historic district including the dome of the Supreme Court and Victoria Memorial Hall's clock was barely discerned above the trees.

On the other hand, the Maybank, Bank of China,HSBC and Straits Trading buildings dwarfed Clifford Pier, the 3 buildings of the Fullerton Hotel Group, and the Old Customs House.

Awesome as it was, I still thought of the time I stood at the end of Clifford Pier, breezes in my hair, and breathed the sea air coming from the far horizon beyond the mole.
