Vivocity

Posted by Dawn at Monday, November 27, 2006
CT and I have been to Vivocity twice so far. Our first time was probably in October when we went for a Charity Movie Premiere there, and watched "An Inconvenient Truth". It is a show starring Al Gore-the ex-vice president of USA.

Basically throughout the whole show, you just feel as if you are sitting in a lecture hall listening to Al Gore give his wonderful speech about global warming. I must say I did not expect the movie to turn out like this, but it does create an awareness in me about how the world is dying with all his statistical findings and evidences. I would recommend this movie to everyone if you do not mind sitting in a lecture hall, where Al Gore is the speaker. I did enjoy it very much.

Before the charity movie, we had free dinner buffet in the cinema as well as free flow of champagne, red, white wine. Minister of Environment was also there..There was lots of leg room space and the screen was much wider.



This is how Vivocity looks like for those who have yet to go there..

This is the entrance of Vivocity

I love the architecture..


On the other side of the building, you can actually see Sentosa and you can go out of the building on the 2nd/3rd floor to view a small pool there as well as enjoy the view and breeze

Our second trip to Vivocity was recently this month where we went to catch the Doulos ship where I used to volunteer in. I worked in the ship for about 3 weeks and I must say it was the longest and toughest 3 weeks, but yet the most enjoyable. I got to know so many friends from all over the world in this Guiness World Record ship. It is only 2 years younger than the Titanic as well as the largest floating book fair held in it. Loads of fun working there, but it wasnt all pure fun, it was hardwork.


We had to reach 7am at the ship every morning to spend time doing our devotionals together as a team and sometimes, we stay back as late as 9pm or 10pm to have prayer meetings. I was exhausted after working whole day in the ship but as I said, it was all worth it because of the fun we had at the same time.


I remember it was also during Christmas time when the ship came and I took a group of my Nigerian friends from the ship to Takashimaya and see the Christmas decorations and to the East for supper. They had curfew which was 11pm to go back to the ship and my local friends all sped back in our cars to send them back along ECP. So fun..Anyway, this is the picture of the ship..
