Marina Bay Sands Singapore Opening Launch, 27th April 2010

Yesterday I was invited to go for the opening of the Marina Bay Sands Singapore. Joined by our local Malaysian media and also hundreds of other foreign media, we were given a taste of one of the most spectacular destination in the world. The whole property itself cost a whooping U$ 5.5 billion!

Marina Bay Sands will be the Asia’s leading destination for business, leisure and entertainment delivering once in a lifetime experiences.
We were given a media tour in the morning with medias from Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam and we were nevertheless nothing less than impressed.

The shopping at Marina Bay Sands will have 800,000 square feet of retail and dining space. Luxury and high end brands such as Cartier, Chanel, Ferragamo, Frank Muller, Gucci, Patek Philippe, Prada and many more will be coming to Marina Bay Sands. On top of that, the interesting part will be the new brands such as Anne Fontaine, Henry Cotton’s, Paul & Shark, Stefano Ricci, Wolford, Marisfrolg, Moiselle and Rabeanco.


Some of the brands that is so exclusive it will be only available in Singapore in the Asia region. Not even in Tokyo, Japan or Hong Kong. It will be one of the hottest shopping destination in Asia!

For the expo and conventions, I was very impressed on the size of it. The Sands Expo and Convention Center has 1.3 million square feet of flexible convention and exhibition space. It features Southeast Asia’s biggest ballroom that can accommodate 6,600 people for a banquet! That will be 660 tables for a wedding! On top of that, there will be junior ballroom for 1,000 people and below. In fact, on this Saturday, Marina Bay Sands will hold 3 separate weddings altogether!

Then, we were brought to the casino area. For the first time in my life, I had the luxury of taking pictures in an actual casino. With more than 600 table games and more than 1,500 slot machines, the design, the setting and the ambience of the casino was nevertheless breathtaking.

In fact, the casino section is only 15,000 square meters which is less than 3 percent of the gross floor area of the whole property.

The picture shows the beautiful ceiling of the casino and the Lotus (car) for the lucky winner of the slot machine.

There will be a wide variety of popular table games including Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat and Sic Bo available at the casino.

Inside the casino, it holds one of the world’s largest Crystal Chandelier. Made with 132,000 Swarovski crystals, the impressive Chandelier suspended 40 meters up in the heart of the casino’s ceiling. Wonder how much it weighs? 7.1 tonnes!

Intan and I couldn’t help ourselves taking pictures in the beautiful casino.

    What Would You Choose, Long Or Short Quinceaneras Dresses?Latin girls from America must carry an old tradition known as Quinceanera. This event celebrates a girls 15th birthday and it symbolizes the passage from childhood to womanhood. Even though this isnt entirely true, it is a great way of spending your birthday and giving a huge party where all your relatives and friends are invited. For many girls, picking quinceaneras dresses can be a hard thing to do, since there are many models to choose from.
