~ Marina Bay Sands - WONDER FULL ~

It's March School Holidays but we do not have any travelling plans. Nevertheless, some activities have been lined up for the kids and one of it is catching the Water & Light Spectacular @ Marina Bay Waterfront - WONDER FULL.

Location: Event Plaza, Marina Bay Sands
Wonder Full will be shown nightly, weather permitting (EVENT IS FREE!)
Sunday to Thursday: 8pm, and 9.30pm
Friday and Saturday: 8pm, 9.30pm and 11pm

We brought along our new camera - LUMIX FZ-40 to the test and am extremely delighted with the photos and video taken. :) The night scene of the Singapore skyline and waterfront is simply gorgeous!

I am really pleased with the night scene and portrait photos taken with our new camera. It is so easy to use and am loving it so much! Hoping to explore the other functions and photo-taking techniques if time permits.
We took a leisure walk from the Singapore Flyer, crossed the Helix Bridge and made our way to the Event Plaza, enjoying the breeze and night scenery along the Marina Bay Waterfront.

View from the Event Plaza - The WONDER FULL performance requires no ticketing or queuing. It is free seating and there will be an additional show at 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Do you know that there is an official radio station for MBS? Tune in to 103.9 FM to listen in real time or you can enjoy the soundtracks which will also be broadcast simultaneously as you watch the performance.

The entire performance last about 13 minutes and it incorporates lasers, lights, giant water screens, music, bubbles to give the public a stunning visual and sound experience. As some moments in the show, we got sprinkled by the water (as if it was drizzling) probably due to the wind direction that is blowing towards us. The lens of the camera got wet and blurry towards the end of the video but it was a great first video-taking attempt with our new toy on the tripod.

On a personal note, I wouldn't mind dropping by to enjoy the show again. It is just as relaxing to sit by the waterfront after a hard day's work and enjoy the serenity of the night or have a heart to heart chat or get together sessions with some close friends. :)
