ARE YOU SERIOUS?

The Singapore Sky Park, opened 
June 24, a new wonder of the world. 
 “Sky Park” Marina Bay Sands is located on the 200-meter height on the three skyscrapers, 
as if on three pillars. Here is the most expensive construction in the world of casinos, bars, restaurants, the largest outdoor swimming pool 150 meters long 
and the Museum of Modern Art .

Imagine trying to build something like this.  What an amazing structure! 
This building featured on the Discovery Channel showing the construction details and challenges. 
The bow is cantilevered for a tremendous distance putting a strain on the rest of the structure; 
all this was factored into the design.

The hotel, which has 2,560 rooms costing from  £350 a night, was officially opened yesterday with a concert by Diana Ross.

The Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi,  estimated to have cost £2billion when it opened in 2004, was previously the  world’s most expensive hotel.

But with its indoor canal, opulent art,  casino, outdoor plaza, convention centre, theatre, crystal pavilion and museum  shaped like a lotus flower, the Marina Bay Sands has taken its crown.

aloha!

Yes!  I know!!  I was gone for a bit, but I’m baaaaaaack … (insert creepy girl’s voice from Poltergeist here)

Oh, goodness….did we have a great vacation in Maui??  Yes!  We did!!  A HUGE shout-out to Ferguson Enterprises for giving us a beautiful vacation!!  And a big HAAAAY!! to Mike and Shannon Spahr and Marc and Angela Riddle for making it even more special!!  If you could lose weight from laughing….well, we would be teeny tiny, for sure.

Look at us, acting all islandy…..(new word)…Well, let’s check out a few pics..

We stayed at the Hyatt Regency and the grounds were gorgeous!  So tropical-y…..(yes, it’s also a new word)

Waterfalls, flamingo’s and lots of birds!

And even penguins!  I know!  That’s what I thought!  What the heck are penguins doing in Hawaii?

They were African penguins and I didn’t like them at all.  They just stood and stared.  They were silently judging me and I did not like it one bit.  They are not christian.  (I can’t document this piece of info, so you just have to trust me)

We made a point to work out everyday in the gym….then we hit the buffet.  Literally.  Next up?  Poolside…

Yep, it didn’t hurt my feelings one bit to lay by the pool with friends!  Tomorrow I’ll show you some pics of the helicopter ride we took over the islands!!

Good to be home!!  Aloha!!!
