The temple is really big with lots of gold and thousands of numbered Buddha statues, very nice to watch - especially when the Buddhist monks are singing their prayers or playing traditional temple music.
After this we visited the ArtScience Museum that looks like a lotus flower in front of the Marina Bay Sands building. In there we went through the three current exhibition: DEEP, Dreamworks Animation, and the Singapore Straits Times. While we visited the Straits Times exhibition just to have a look at the amazing architecture of the exhibition rooms, we enjoyed DEEP and the Dreamworks Animation very much. Creepy creatures, down there in the deep sea, really creepy. The whole exhibition halls are dark and cold. I first thought this coolness was intention, to feel like in the cold deep sea, but the entire museum was that cold! It wasn't even cool, it was really cold. That's why we had to make a little faster, because it wasn't so nice for short and shirt wearers. And I loved the touch screen monitors so much, where you could edit a Dreamworks Animation character (Po from Kung Fu Panda, one of the Penguins from Madagascar, and two others) in funny ways...
