Sentosa Island in Singapore sure has changed over the decades. Having grown up in Kuala Lumpur, we would make our annual trip to Singapore for shopping and food. I remember Sentosa Island back then was filled with lush greenery and for me, the scariest cable car ride as it hung precariously over the sea.
The cable car is still there albeit a newer, better version. Sentosa is now a 500-hectare island resort is home to an exciting array of themed attractions, award-winning spa retreats, lush rainforests, golden sandy beaches, resort accommodations, world-renowned golf courses, a deep-water yachting marina and luxurious residences.
Home to Universal Studios, the island is somewhat lack luster in my book. They literally built a man made entertainment hub of which I feel it lacks any warmth (not talking about the heat here!) or character. Yes it has everything you'll need to entertain the family for days but when we went it was like a ghost town. .
Everything we visited was super fun, don't get me wrong but the atmosphere in the whole area was extremely sterile. Which is a shame as it has so much potential. I feel that people head here out of necessity rather than choice. .
It's funny how people experience things differently. The girl on the left looks like she's saying: "Take the picture already! I am freezing!". While the girl on the right seems to be saying: "I feel so free, I think I could fly!". I felt this picture was a good one to try a cinemagraph on. What do you think? Nice idea, or nah, too cliche, stick to regular pictures.
