Singapore Revisited

This Diwali eve was a special one! Perhaps, a really special one. We were invited by Singapore Tourism and Hit95fm to watch Mariah Carey and BNP Paribas WTA Finals live in Singapore. The invite and the visa came with a stroke of luck. I am really thankful to Nivedita Matta and the entire Hit 95FM team for making this happen. She was really supportive during the entire process and made sure every small thing was taken care of.

Mariah Carey concert was fun and so were WTA Finals. With so many Indians, Sania Mirza was a crowd favourite and she clinched the doubles finals at the event. It was Serena Williams all the way in the singles finals.

Those 4 days that we spent in Singapore will go down a long way in the memory lane. The silver lining in the trip was our stay at iconic Marina Bay Sands, which has transformed the landscape of tourism in the country since its inception.

All good things come in small packages, so did this one. We wish the trip could have been a shade longer. But then as a winner you can’t complain anymore 🙂

Cameras weren’t allowed at the National Stadium and I only had an iPhone for company. This is perhaps the best shot that I could take at the concert.

People in a festive mood at the Marina Bay Sands. You would find people clicking selfies, splashing water and adoring the beautiful view of the city.

Singapore Zoo is a fun place to be when you're with your family.

The weather is very good, you can walk the entire path in the Zoo or else take a tram ride.
