Up the Singapore Flyer

I attended an appreciation dinner hosted by Singapore’s Civil Service College (I collaborate with them on a new media communications workshop–check out my other blog) recently. The gesture was wonderful, and the evening perfect. I even managed to catch up with fellow kakisWalter, Ivan, etc.

The experience up the Singapore Flyer–touted as the world’s largest observation wheel (I’m sure we’re not allowed to call it a ferris wheel) at 165m from the ground–was a little underwhelming.

Is it because it rotates ever so slowly? Of that Singapore’s nightscape pales in comparison with other metropolis such as Hong Kong? At S$29.50 for a 1/2-hour ride (that’s almost S$1 per min), I know it’s something I would balk at paying, so thank you, CSC, and thanks, Walter and Ivan, for making the event a fun experience.
