Singapore Flyer

On Tuesday Mummy and Daddy went for a ride on the Singapore Flyer. What do you ask is the Singapore Flyer. Well its a giant size ferris wheel. It is very very tall. Much much taller than me. Its supposed to be the tallest on in the world right now.

Then there are these little cages on the wheel and hoomans go inside them. Then the wheel turns taking the hoomans up up into the sky. Quite exciting. I wish I could go. But as usual, some hoomans are so un-dog-friendly. They don't allow furkids. Its not fair.

Mummy says it moves really slowly but the view is very very good. She wasn't scared at all. So brave. She could almost see our house (and me of course) from the top. Daddy as usual was too busy taking photos of the flyer and the wheel. Here are some of his photos. Sorry about the wierd colour but they were taken at dusk. Also the funny curved bits is because he used his fish eye lens. Hmmm! Interesting. Do you think Daddy actually caught a fish and took its eye. Then put the eye on his camera.

The flyer is actually not open to the public yet. But Daddy says they are going again (without me as usual) during the day when the flyer is open to the public this weekend. He says that you can even see Malaysia and Indonesia from it during the day.

View of Singapore's skyline from the little cages in the wheel. Here is a picture of one of the cages. Quite scary! My parents were actually in one of these things.
