We recently had a company event at a truly unique venue. When Singapore dammed up the river to create Marina Bay reservoir, they made the dam a walkway
that leads to a building that houses all the machinery. This building is an award-winning design; its roof is reached by huge ramps and all are covered with grass.
The position of the building catches a constant wind, perfect for kite flying. Those are the little black spots in this view from afar:
When we went to the family event we took a walk up the ramps and found a whole culture of kite flyers:
Families fly traditional kites with string, while others have giant-sized ones that use special equipment to hold huge ropes (like the Nemo one shown above).
Nearly everyone had a picnic - and in true Singapore style, these guys had quite a sushi spread:
