the Marina Bay Sands, and why I’m here

the Marina Bay Sands integrated resort complex, Singapore

This was one of the first sights that triggered my penchant for traveling — the spectacular Marina Bay Sands complex in Singapore. Encompassing the Helix Bridge, The Sands Hotel, and the lotus-shaped ArtScience Museum, these provide an ultra-modern backdrop against The Lion City’s skyline. I remember seeing it on photo when it was launched, and wishing I could see it before my eyes.

[Two trips later (and another one in the works), it still never ceases to amaze me! 🙂 ]

In other words… Hey everyone! Welcome to my first ever travel blog, Free At Leisure. I cannot wait to share my adventures (erstwhile or otherwise) and let you seize the world through this happy portal. Come on board!
