Sunday 20200809. I drove to Marina Square after dinner to try to see the fireworks. Across the road, the people was gathering at the pedestrian walk. When I went across, I found the place was barricaded and people were not allowed to go in. So, my wife and I found a spot too and stood for awhile but we decided to walk further.
🎶Meanwhile, some music for you to enjoy as you read. This piece is part of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, particular the first of the 4 violin concertos, called Spring.

🎶让大家继续读的时候，欣赏一点音乐。这件作品是维瓦尔第的“四季”的一部分 - 4小提琴协奏曲中的第一首，名为“春天”。

As I went close to the Helix Bridge, we found a spot and waited there and I began to take photos around the area.
One of the photos here, you may have seen it because I had shared it before for a photo contest but I cannot remember which one. Anyway, you can see there was quite a crowd there.
From where I stood, I could see the Singapore flag projected beneath the roof of Marina Bay Sands.
Here are a few more shots from varying angles.
We waited and waited and waited. Then one security guy told us the fireworks were not shooting from the bay area but the Marina Barrage area. My wife asked then why are all these people still waiting there. He said he don't know but he already told them. So, we were all waiting at the wrong place. My wife and I hesitated for a while before deciding to brisk walk over to our next destination.
