#TrippingSingapore2022: Capturing Architectural Elements in Water and Colour

Published by


In my #throwbackThursday, this long outstanding post on my short tripping to Singapore deserves some attention. Throughout the years, Singapore has been making headlines for its breathtaking skylines and modern environmental enhancements. The city-state’s futuristic architecture has become a symbol of its ambition and innovation. From the iconic Marina Bay Sands with its gravity-defying rooftop pool to the otherworldly Supertrees of Gardens by the Bay, Singapore never fails to amaze visitors with its cutting-edge designs.

The blend of tradition and modernity in Singapore’s architectural landscape captivated me during my visit. Walking through the historic squares of Queen and Victoria str, I marveled at the intricate details of the shophouses and churches that have stood the test of time. These spaces were a stark contrast to the sleek skyscrapers that dominate the city’s skyline, creating a harmonious blend of old and new.

During my trip to Singapore, I had a great time exploring the amazing structures at Gardens by the Bay. First and foremost, one of the highlights was the Supertree Grove, where I was in awe of the towering structures and the mesmerizing lights. Additionally, the botanical sculptures in the World of Plants were truly spectacular, showcasing the beauty and diversity of nature.

Moreover, as I ventured outdoors, I couldn’t help but be captivated by the artistic sculptures that adorned the surroundings. All in all, it was a truly unique experience that left a lasting impression.

From photos to watercolour sketching

A watercolour and sketch travel journal was started by me to document my experience and showcase the architectural wonders I witnessed. From the intricate patterns of the Gothic churches to the futuristic lines of Singapore’s Jewel, I aimed to capture and immortalize the various architectural marvels.

Therefore, each page in this journal became a tangible representation of the architectural diversity that makes Singapore so unique. Moreover, every represented architecture not only shapes the physical environment but also tells a captivating story of culture, aspirations, and identity.

That said, my travel journal is on its way to becoming a personal time capsule, preserving the essence of each architectural element and the joy of discovering history. This journey was inspiring enough for me to begin planning my travel stories around Malaysia as well so that when the years pass, I’ll be able to revisit these pages and be transported back to the moments when I stood in awe of these architectural masterpieces.
