EastCoastLife rides on The Singapore Flyer - WS #50

I was invited to Bausch & Lomb's launch of PureVision® Toric lenses & Daily Disposable Toric lenses. I have astigmatism, yet I could wear contacts. There are uniquely designed contact lenses to meet the special vision correction needs of people with astigmatism. It's great my hubby's an optometrist. :)

We had an 8-course Chinese dinner and enjoyed a free ride on The Singapore Flyer. It is the world's largest observation wheel. Standing at a stunning 165m from the ground, the Flyer offers breathtaking, panoramic views of the Marina Bay, our island city and beyond.

Savouring the magnificent skyline views, stunning scenery and waterfront architecture on this 30 minute flight.


I missed the sunset ride because of the long queue. :(

But the night ride was just as lovely!

Besides prescribing contact lenses, our optical practice offers a wide selection of traditional and unique designer frames, as well as sports, sunglasses and children’s styles. Christopher is an experienced, licensed optometrist trained to find the glasses that best fit your face and lifestyle.

  2. I've never been on the Singapore flyer yet. I bet it will be beautiful form the top most. You know what ECL, you always have fun activities up your sleeve! I wonder how you do it. :)

    have a nice week ahead!

  3. The price for the Singapore Flyer ride at $29.50 is quite steep. Can't afford!!
    After the cataract operation for both of my eyes two years ago, I have now developed astigmatism. You mean to say astigmatism can be corrected by wearing glasses?

  11. I prefer the night view so colourful. But with my wife then the sunset view would be most romantic :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. wah, your hubby an optometrist ka? Can go Singapore and ask your hubby to check my eye or not? Hehehe Kidding!

    SGD29.50 if converted to MYR can be quite steep. Wai for ECL to belanja me a ride! :D

    I used to wear contact lens, but felt it was too expensive as I too have astigmatism.

    ReplyDelete
  13. wow! Singapore flyer! maybe we can check it out if ever we go to SG next year.

    I wonder if BL's Toric lenses are already available here in Manila? My sister and I are contact lens users. It's my sister who has astigmatism while I am near-sighted.

  14. Very nice view! But someone told me they got bored after 10 minutes of getting on it.

  15. Cool. I was up the Singapore Flyer on 15 Nov 2008, in the afternoon. From your photos, it looks like the night view is lovely too. I wonder how the sunset ride would be?

    What an interesting way to publicise the Toric lenses.

  26. Would love to go up the S'pore flyer on my next visit but still not sure if the height is problem for me or not.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hi Jasmine,

    Height should not be a problem as the flyer rotates slowly one.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hi Sean,

    Do come to Singapore during the christmas, New Year and Chinese New Year time, the streets would be abuzz with activities!

    ReplyDelete
  29. A little history about the flyer. It changes its direction of rotation after geomancers thought the intial rotation after it was opened for some months actually is not auspicous, removing wealth of the island than bringing it!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Another place to see the flyer would be at the new Marina Barrage. The new flyer from a distance looks splendid!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I haven't been up there yet. But I've heard inside stories about the owner's future plans for the Flyer - from a reliable source of course! keke.

  38. I rode the flyer last year before we left SE Asia. I rode during the day and it was amazing, but the night shots make wish time had allowed for a chance to ride at night. Perhaps someday I will make it back that way again!

    ReplyDelete
