Sentosa Island (formerly known as Pulau Belakang Mati) is located in the south of Singapore. It’s the most popular resort and theme park in Singapore. You can go there either by bus or cable car. Sentosa Island is a place where you can have exciting outdoor and indoor activities with friends and family.
It’s also a nice place for honeymoon because there are three wonderful beaches in Sentosa Island which are Palawan Beach, Siloso Beach and Tanjong Beach. Palawan Beach is the place where a suspension bridge links to the Southernmost Point of Continental Asia (Asia’s closest point to the Equator). Sentosa Island has the biggest war museum in the South East Asia. It is the centerpiece of Britain’s spectacularly unsuccessful “Fortress Singapore” strategy in World War II. Sentosa Island also has an Underwater World where the oceanarium is home to more than 2,500 fishes from 250 different species. There are too many other attractions to list up.
I can bet that you will have an unforgettable traveling experience. It’s worth for you to spend the whole day for enjoyment. Have a nice holiday!
Few days before we leave Medina, we also grab the chance to visit other places of interest apart from al-Masjid al-Nabawi in Medina such as Uhud and al-Qiblatain mosque.
Uhud was located about 5km from Medina. The battle between the Muslims and the Meccans (Quraysh) was happened here at the valley that located in front of the mount Uhud on year 625. The Muslim army was lead by Prophet Muhammad, Saidina Hamza ibn Talib and Saidina Ali. There are about 70 Muslims died in this battle. The enemies are outnumbered about three times more than the Muslim army. The victory goes to Quraysh.
After that, we went to Masjid al-Qiblatain (Mosque of the two Qiblas). The historical event was held at this mosque where in the past the Muslims have been commanded to change the Qibla (the direction of prayer) about 180 degrees turn from Jerusalem to Makkah (Mecca).
Few days later, we left Medina and move forward to Makkah. I love al-Masjid al-Nabawi. I cannot wait to visit that place again in the future.
Al-Qiblatain mosque (Mosque two Qiblas) seen from outside. Architectural design which greatly good!
About 4-5 years ago, the weird sky formation is really attracted me to take the photos of it. My actual mission on that day is to take the sunset photography, but the result is very disappointing. There is no beautiful sunset on that day. When I was on the way back home, I saw something that looked very attractive. The sky formation is a bit funny. I quickly took out my camera from my bag and snapped a few photos. Suddenly, I saw something came from the edge where the sun is set. The object is look very bright and floating toward the high altitude. It is not an aircraft for sure nor helicopter. Must be a lantern? I don’t think so, since lantern is in yelowish color and not pure white. After a while, the unidentified object is disappeared. In less than half and hour, the moon is set.
I’m not really sure what the thing is. I hope you guys can stand up your opinion about this phenomenon. Happy discussion!
