Do not misunderstand me. I am not encouraging mindless consumerism, shallow materialism and impulse buying. I am talking about spending within one's means and not chalking up huge credit card debts. Sometimes, you need to reward yourself after working so hard over the year, albeit sensibly.
Having said all that, I just wanna share my year-end stay-cation at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore. It was a great experience at the six-star hotel. Here comes the photo sharing :)
We checked in at night and went straight up to the Sky Park. The scenery was breathtaking!
We visited Hermes. The sales personnel was polite and helpful even though we did not buy anything. Kudos to them :)
Had dim sum for breakfast at a food-court called "Rasapura" (I hope I spelt that correctly :P )
The siew-mai, braised chicken feet (the flesh slid off the bone effortlessly) and har gao taste good. Char Siew bun is rather average.
After breakfast, we went up to the Sky Park again. Rather misty and windy. I went to the jacuzzi (I am scared of cold -__-") while my family relaxed in the pool. There is a cordoned area just for the VIPs.
I am not a good photographer. These are the only better-quality photos that I took without my family members and I being inside. I will try to improve my photography skills.
I am definitely going back to Marina Bay Sands. Two things I wanna try on my 2nd visit. 1) Chocolate buffet at the Sky Park. 2) Fine dining at "CUT", a restaurant owned by celebrity chef, Wolfgang Puck.
Time to start saving up.
As for details on room rates, facilities, services and events, you can check out the website below. I do not wanna bore you with the details.

Total damage to wallet is about $450. I feel it is a little pricey, but I am happy with the quality of facilities, service and food.
Finally, I will like to wish everyone Merry, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year :)
