Faring well


No it’s not pissing down, it’s a performance.

A couple of ‘landmarks’ bid good bye this week – the National Stadium, which I dare say has more sentimental value than the other ‘landmark’, the Musical Fountain on Sentosa, Singapore’s Last Resort Island.

Channelnewsasia reports that ‘it staged it’s final two performances to a sell-out crowd’. Which gives it a couple of firsts – it’s probably the first fountain that ‘performs’, and it’s probably the only fountain that people pay money to come watch perform.

Odd, but hey, it’s Singapore and weirder things have happened.

Channelnewsasia reported of the National Stadium that:

“The National Stadium – home to 18 National Day Parades, scores of national games and the Kallang Wave – will be demolished later this year to make way for the Sports Hub.”

  1. Well, the new show will cost additional to watch. I believe it’s S$6. So, you’ll be paying entrance fee to Sentosa plus fee to watch the new show.

    I see this mistake too often.
    it’s = it is

    In this case, it should be ‘its’ as a possesive pronoun.

  7. sir, you might have forgotten another first. it was probably the first time the musical fountain had ‘performed’ to a sell out crowd.
