I liked this task as it allowed us to have the opportunity to leave the house and to enquire for more knowledge.It also allowed to combine the learning of history and geography together.The problem was that it was a rainy day and there were problems gathering information.There were constrictions when collecting data as the placed I stayed in did not really have any landmarks.I would on my time management as it really is an important area that when once managed wrongly, nothing works out.

Vivocity is the biggest shopping mall in Singapore.It was designed by an architect Toyo Ito which was creative enough to come up with such a fabulous design with the weird bends and curves.According to Mapletree Chairman Edmund Cheng, he stated that Vivocity evokes a lifestyle experience that is modern, stimulating and accessible to everyone, a place bubbling with energy and flowing with vitality.
At the end of the first week of the official opening on 1 December 2006, the mall had reached a record of nearly a million visitors.
From the beginning as "Harbourfront Corporation", it was a federal crown corporation established in 1972.Harbourfront Centre was formed on January 1, 1991 as a non-profit charitable organization with a say and voice to organise and present public events.It is also allowed to operate a 10-acre site encompassing York Quay and John Quay.
Now, Harbourfront has three towers of which one of them is the starting point of the cable car ride.Harbourfront tower 1 and 2 are office buildings while tower 3 is the shopping area where many shops open daily to welcome in a new wave of customers.

Previously, Sentosa was a fishing village called Pulau Blakang Mati that was later converted to be a British Military Fortress until control of it was returned to the newly independent Singapore government.A year later, the government decided to develop the island as a holiday place for both local and foreign tourists.The place was named Sentosa as it meant by peace and tranquility.
Today, it is a very famous and popular place which cannot be missed as the number one attraction in Singapore other than Marina Sands. It has many things there, ranging from dining to hotels and spas to living and lastly to many fun attractions available.Until now, it is still one of the bests.Who knows next time things would just keep getting better?
