VivoCity Outing

My dear friend Bridgette suggested a visit to Vivocity last weekend with little Val.

Singapore is filled with shopping malls and that's inevitably where families end up - for the cool air-con comfort in a desperate bid to escape the tropical heat. But Vivocity is different. Its rooftop is a vast expanse of wading water, overlooking the sea. Children get a place to frolic, while parents get a breather from the deafening drone of the shopping crowd.

It was Vera's first time there. We make it a point to bring her out, even though she doesn't quite enjoy the hot, bright outdoors. But in the glow of the setting sun, I caught this shot of daddy and Vera. It says so much without words.
