The Singapore Merlion
Located on the actual top of Mount Faber is a viewing platform in which you can look all over Singapore in different directions. Carefully guarding the peak is the symbol of Singapore, the Merlion. This animal is a cross between a mermaid and a lion, which has been the symbol of Singapore now for a little more than 40 years.
This is one of smaller of the statues to be found around the city, with others on the waterfront and the largest being on Sentosa Island.

Singapore - All Seasons
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Jenn (IMStress) gave me the best tip for a trip to Singapore... there are two seasons, nice and warm. This is it, because of its proximity to the equator, you are not going to get a lot of sway from the thermometer, which means that throughout the year, you can pretty much leave your wool coats elsewhere. I was very comfortable in shorts and a t-shirt most of the day!

World Trade Centre
If you have time, do drop by at the nearby World Trade Centre of Singapore for some shopping and food.
Telok Blangah Housing Estate
If you want to have a good feel of how most of the people live in Singapore in their HDB housing flats, you can visit the Telok Blangah Housing Estate located next to the Mount Faber hill.
When I was at the carpark in front of Marina Deck, there was this tree with yellow leaves which resemble a scene from autumn which Singapore does not have, being near the equator.
Tortoises in the pond
When you are entering the Marina Deck, there is a large pond with fountains, and you will get to see some tortoises swimming the pond.
